Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) Executive Director Bill Lempesis (who I previously interviewed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y4PGoVR3ENo) introduces DisplayPort 1.4 A/V standard, which VESA developed, with input and cooperation from more than 230 global members. DP 1.4 includes a number of next-generation features, including capabilities for High Dynamic Range (HDR) and 8K video across the USB-C connector. It also features, for the first time, VESA’s Display Stream Compression Standard (DSC) standard, which enables up to 3:1 video compression with visually lossless performance. Stephane Boisclair, senior hardware designer for Hardent, provides an in-depth description of the latest DSC specification update, v1.2. A VESA member company, Montreal-based Hardent develops IP cores to support DSC encoding and decoding. DSC 1.2, which supports up to 16 bits per color and HDR, has great implications for high-end TVs and PCs, as well as automotive applications, where the growing number of camera sensors requires less cabling and greater range.

faytech is a leading German manufacturer of touchscreen devices with their own manufacturing facilities in Shenzhen, China. Here is a 38-minute tour of faytech's US headquarters in New York with managing founder Arne Weber, visiting Infotek, faytech's maintenance and repair services servicing partner in Manhattan and MetroClick, faytech's project development partner in Manhattan, and showing off several projects being deployed using faytech touch displays in New York:
- ButterflyMX Intercom System, an 11.6’’ intercom system produced in cooperation with ButterflyMX. Cyrus Claffey, the CEO of ButterflyMX, presents an already installed and operating system at one of the residential buildings in downtown New York.
- Christie & Co. Salon and Spa with the owner Lois Christie, one of the TOP 20 beauty salons in USA, tells how putting a faytech 55’’ Touchscreen PC Kiosk in their salons helps expand her business and encourage customers to engage using social media after their beauty procedure.
- Proof 7, one of the last remaining big printing companies in New York, uses faytech to improve the reliability of their service.
- Lexus Installation at Madison Square Garden, faytech devices are part of something luxurious and technologically advanced.
- Hercules installed in 400 Hercules laundry shops in New York, faytech touch devices are being used for faster more reliable customer support when a laundry machine stops working.
faytech can deliver large stock of standard touch devices and they have the flexibility and competence to realize any touch device project. You can contact faytech at email@example.com.
Qualcomm Atheros, Inc. shows off 802.11ad, the next generation Wi-Fi over 60Ghz, that enables data transfer speeds at up to 7Gbit/s. The 60 GHz signal cannot typically penetrate walls but can propagate off reflections from walls, ceilings, floors and objects using beamforming. When roaming away from the main room the protocol can switch to make use of the other lower Wi-Fi bands on 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz at a much lower rate, both of which can propagate through walls. 802.11ad is supported in Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, Qualcomm Atheros Qualcomm Internet Processor (IPQ) 8064 reference designs combined with its QCA9500 802.11ad chipset. Letv's first Snapdragon 820 smartphone will support it. New Wi-Fi Access points from Elecom, NEC and TP-Link support it, and Acer and Asus plan to release laptops with 802.11ad. SiBEAM, Inc., a Lattice Semiconductor company, and Peraso Technologies, Inc. will also deliver Adapters to the market.
Sharp Robohon (which I previously filmed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiZSL3o8L7M) is Sharp's vision for the future of the smartphone. A pocket-sized humanoid Robot, with built-in Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 processor, LTE Sim card slot, it has a built-in projector, microphone, speaker. The concept is to use AI conversations to bring usefulness as a notification robot. I think Sharp needs to mass manufacture it, sell it worldwide for the price of an iPhone, and load all kinds of AI apps so it can be powered by Google, Amazon, Microsoft or anyone else who is making an AI voice assistant.
