Datavideo’s DAC-7 is a small, extremely portable but powerful mini converter that enables users to convert the output from any camera, including prosumer level cameras, to professional SD-SDI for easy connection to existing professional or broadcast equipment; for example SDI switchers such as Datavideo’s SE-900, SE-1000, or SE-3000 (in SD mode). The DAC-7 can accommodate two channels of audio input via RCA or balanced XLR and embed them both in the SDI signal, requiring only one SDI cable for both video and audio transmission. DAC-7 converts component, composite, and S-Video into SDI video (SD only). Simple to mount, the DAC-7 mounts between camera and tripod for ease of use. The analog to SDI converter is available in NTSC or PAL video standards (not a dual standard device).
The TechGirls are so great. They came to Tumblr HQ yesterday and our engineers answered their questions about Tumblr, about tech, about being a woman in tech, about the future of tech, oh, all kinds of stuff. “Totally the happiest panel ever,” according to alittlespace.
Getting my REXX on!
This could be the most accurate (and gorgeous) mockup of the upcoming iPhone 6. Oh god I love this!
Microsoft’s Surface Pro 3 tablet might finally be gaining some traction for Microsoft in the tablet market, but the whole Surface venture has come at an enormous cost.
Harnessing the powerful PCI Express (PCIe) capabilities of ExpressCard, the ExpressCard/34 to USB 3.0 Host Adapter provides USB 3.0 SuperSpeed capabilities for high performance USB 3.0 peripherals. The SuperSpeed adapter provides two external USB 3.0 ports. The PCIe card to USB 3.0 adapter is fully backward compatible with existing USB 2.0 and USB 1.1 devices, and connects with USB based printers, modems, speakers, scanners, and hundreds of other devices while enabling the use of high performance device that were once reserved only for high speed buses like eSATA and FireWire. Easy USB 3.0 installation makes adding new hardware a breeze, with no complex configuration, confusing plug-ins, or IRQs. Connect up to 127 USB 3.0, USB 2.0, or USB 1.1 products to PCs. Ready for use with self-powered devices, or purchase 5V power adapter from any electronics store for devices requiring bus power.
After being among the first few companies to bring smartphones to the masses with Windows Mobile, Microsoft has repeatedly failed to return to its former glory in recent years. There are a number of reasons for these repeated failures in the smartphone and tablet markets, but the broadest and most important may be the simple fact that Microsoft appears to have absolutely no idea what users want.
The ACR1251U-A1 is the second-generation Contactless Near Field Communication (NFC) Reader from ACS, which offers advanced features such as firmware upgradeability, a SAM (Secure Access Module) slot, and support for NFC tags and devices. It is ideal for contactless applications with added security functions. Through the SAM, key diversification and mutual authentication are made possible, restricting the exposure of keys and limiting the possibility of keys being stolen, providing a high level of security in contactless operations.
ACR1251U-A1 is suitable for any contactless smart card application such as personal identity verification, network login, online banking, and micropayment. With enhanced NFC features, ACR1251U-A1 is also ideal for non-conventional NFC applications like Smart Posters for advertising and marketing, and communication with most-NFC enabled mobile phones. Furthermore, ACR1251U-A1 is PC/SC-compliant, allowing interoperability across different applications and platforms. ACR1251U-A1 also supports remote post-deployment firmware update, which eliminates the need for additional hardware modification. With its compact size, trendy design and rich features, ACR1251U-A1 enables you to fully enjoy the convenience of using NFC applications.
