Johanna, Peter and Anna of faytech give a tour of the faytech booth at Computex 2018. This will be the 5th time faytech is exhibiting at Computex to show some of their standard products, but special projects also.
The 55” IP65 Touch PC Kiosk is shown, which is perfect for outdoor usage. It is water- and dust proof and has 1000+ nits of brightness. Besides this, you can also see the 32” Open Frame (HDK) Touch Monitor, with 1000+ nits and is Optically Bonded. It is the perfect solution for integration into a machine or wall. After that, the special project for bus application is also introduced, which uses a 10.1” IP65 Capacitive Touch Monitor with high brightness, RFID scanner and special buttons on the front. Then, the 21.5” Docking station PC with new design is shown, which uses a 100-pin connector and magnets to attach the LCD Panel to the Industrial PC, which is revolutionary in its use! After that, Anna takes over and introduces the 15” IP65 High Brightness Touch Monitor, which uses an All-In-One Cable, perfect for outdoor usage. Then the 15” Capacitive Touch PC with Ubuntu OS is introduced. And at last, the 21.5” V40 Embedded PC is introduced by Peter, which uses Android OS.
Silicon Labs demonstrates their latest Internet of Things devices including their Dynamic Multiprotocol support based on their Mighty Gecko ARM Cortex-M4 platform supporting Zigbee and Bluetooth in parallel running Micrium RTOS with just a few microsecond delay when switching. Micrium RTOS is the number 1 in the commercial RTOS market. Silicon Labs also shows their Bluetooth 5 support, voice over Bluetooth LE, sensor to cloud connectivity, apple homekit, Bluetooth 5 can do 4 times longer distance or 2 times more bandwidth compared with Bluetooth 4. Silicon Labs shows their Bluetooth Mesh system using their Mighty Gecko development board that also features a memory LCD display. Silicon Labs acquired Sigma Designs Z-Wave Business, where Z-Wave goes into sub-Ghz so there is less noise going through walls, reaching longer distances compared with Bluetooth and Zigbee and also able to make it a Mesh. They now have the 500 series chip and they are going to announce the 700 series ARM Cortex-M4 chip running at lower power providing a longer range. Silicon Labs has shipped hundreds of millions of devices thus far based on their Mighty Gecko, Bluetooth, and Zigbee products and they also have shipped over 100 million devices using Z-Wave.
GIGABYTE shows their Cavium ThunderX2 Workstation, an upcoming product for ARM software developmers to optimize their code for the ARM server market. It will feature dual Cavium ThunderX2 processors with 4 channels of RDIMM/LRDIMM DDR4 2666/2400Mhz memory per socket, and total capacity of 16 x DIMMS. Networking will include a dedicated MLAN port. Other specifications are still under adjustment for the final product which is something that GIGABYTE and Cavium are discussing with potential customers to satisfy a demand.
Filming here the latest range of JMGO projectors at their Shenzhen China Headquarters, products include JMGO P2, JMGO V8 Full HD 1080p projector, JmGO J6S FHD 1080p projector, running Android. Some of the JMGO projectors come with loud speakers with high quality sound design considered in them. This video also features the JMGO Vintage Edition, JMGO M6, JMGO E8, JMGO N7L and more. JMGO SC is a China-only 1000gbp ($1320) short throw projector with 1800 lumen but there also is JMGO SA with 2200 lumen available here on Aliexpress.com
HDMI 2.1 brings auto low latency mode (ALLM) and variable refresh rate (VRR) gaming here demonstrated on a Samsung QLED TV with a new firmware update to add that functionality support to the Microsoft Xbox One X. For more information about HDMI 2.1 features for gaming see my other video. That VRR functionality of HDMI 2.1 can be considered similar to dynamic refresh rate technologies like AMD’s FreeSync and NVIDIA’s G-Sync which are now popular for gamers buying new gaming PC monitors and new graphics cards, but the target market here for the HDMI 2.1 is also for gamers to be able to enjoy those features on the 4K TVs in the future. So expect upcoming 4K TVs to support it, if not it even being added to the firmware of existing 4K TVs on the market (like possibly as part of an evt firmware update for this Samsung QLED 4K TV), and here also updated with the firmware of gaming consoles like the Xbox One X.
Tour of the faytech booth at the SID Display Week 2018. In this exhibition faytech focuses on their large format displays and optical bonding expertise and service. In the video you can see several faytech products, but also their partner’s products, which are optically bonded by faytech.
In the video, they show several 86” Optically bonded “blackboard” devices with PCAP Capacitive touch technology for educational or multi-media purposes. During the tour a 75” outdoor IP65, (dust- and water-proof) Multi-media PC, as well as faytech’s own 55” Open Frame (HDK) Touch Monitor with 1000+ nits of brightness can be seen. This Open Frame is the perfect solution for integrating into a machine or wall. Eventually, the 65” FlatFrog In-Glass touch device bonded by faytech is shown, which is interesting, because only faytech possesses the bonding technology to do so. Then the 46” 2500+ nits outdoor kiosk from faytech’s partner, which is perfect for in- and outdoor use is presented. And at last, faytech’s 15.6” smart mirror with Capacitive touch technology is shown, which is perfect for the bathroom.

Paul Travers, President and CEO at Vuzix talks about how Vuzix is about to ship the Vuzix Blade Developer Kit to developers, providing a wearable smart display with a see-through viewing experience utilizing Vuzix's proprietary waveguide optics and Cobra II display engine, to be able to see overlaid information, indoors or out, such as patient data, mapping directions, restaurant menus, weather information, alerts and more without picking up a smartphone. Vuzix Blade (see my previous videos about the Vuzix Blade here) can also synchronize and interact with a smartphone, allowing users to keep their phone in their pockets for almost everything where fashion meets technology in the wearable display arena. Vuzix also recently announced partnership to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon XR1 Platform and also working with Plessey microLED Microdisplay Technology.
