Check out the latest on-line commercial from IOGear. The commercial concept is a question about your monitor shrinking in size when viewing content on-line…now you can stream from your PC to your flat screen or project from the IOGear wireless USB audio video kit. The only thing they forgot to mention is the critical step of clean streaming content during viewing from your cable modem…ya right.
2010 will be a fun year of USB reporting and blogging with USB 3.0 just starting to break with new products. Today we have the first USB 3.0 WebCam from Point Grey. The webcam has the bandwidth and capability to push a full 1080p video stream without compression.
Since USB host controllers are not yet available, Point Grey has teamed with Fresco Logic to include a USB 3.0 PCI interface card.
EverythingUSB brings up a good point with these new USB 3.0 devices, they will actually become cheaper than their slower, 2.0 predecessors. The reason being: less logic and hardware is required inside the device to do processing such as compression and decompression, USB 3.0 now simply push the data through the pipe.
The Point Grey Webcamera is slatted to display at the IDF 2009 conference in San Fransicso in a couple weeks.
NEC uses the term of “unmatched viewing experience” for their new 43 inch curved wide screen monitor. Lets forget about the $7,000 price tage for a moment.
It’s a seamless curved design which is the most impressive feature, and includes connectivity as a single DVI-D input, HDMI 1.3, or USB 2.0.

Some notable features which I didn’t think about, but NEC did the convenience of reminding me are the lack of bezels of multiple monitors side-by-side, and auto extended taskbar that spreads natively across the screen.
Mimo has made a fairly good name for itself with the 710 series USB monitor…a compact 7″ add-on monitor. Well, these guys have one-upped themselves with the new 710-S. This is a USB monitor which is now slider slim sweetness.
Just check out this picture and you’ll understand why.
Mimo better dump all their old 710 inventory because everyone will want this new version.
The 7″ display has a display resolution of 800 x 400, contrast ratio of 400:1, and brightness around 350 cd/m2. Of course, the only connection needed, including power, is a USB connection.
The 710-S pivots 90 degrees and
“The integrated stand protects the screen from scratches when closed.”
Mimo doesn’t have stock, but willing to take your money. For those who pre-book, you’ll get product by late August. Price is $149.
Happy 4th of July for those of you located in the USA. I found this themed USA Flagged Flip MinoHD which you should consider if you don’t have one. I just recently made the switch from MiniDV video tape to a solid state memory video recorder like this MinoHD. It’s so much nicer because there is no more transfer of analog to digital process.
With the USB Flip MinoHD you just connect via USB and start downloading your video. This translates into doing
