Sharp is back. Sharp had a press conference at IFA 2018 announcing that they are back, together with their new investor Foxconn Group, Sharp has so many awesome technologies that they are planning to bring in a strong way to the European market in the months to come.

Firmware 2.0 on Panasonic GH5 at IFA 2017

Posted by Charbax – September 1, 2017

The new upcoming firmware update 2.0 for the Panasonic GH5 to be released at the end of September 2017 will hopefully fix and much improve auto-focus speed/performance/reliability on the camera, it adds also a 72mbit/s H265 HEVC 4K30p mode with 4:2:0 10bit Hybrid Log Gamma HDR recording mode that is said to be totally compatible with direct YouTube upload! (I'm hoping that since this new HEVC is 10bit 4:2:0, and not 4:2:2, then it would be nice if that would support 60p recording also, but I guess that it probably won't ever support HDR (HLG) at 4K60p) The new firmware also adds 400mbit/s all-i 4K30/60p recording on new V-90 SD cards (possibly support from some V-60 rated SD cards for sustained guaranteed bandwidth support). This new firmware might also add new Dual image stabilization tracking improvements when locking onto a subject and moving around it. A function to remote control the device over Bluetooth and over USB Type-C host with an application for Windows and Mac that lets users remote control and preview photography onto the computer in real-time, maybe it can also be used for real-time video previewing perhaps even real-time video recording over the USB Type-C port to a computer (I'm hoping even directly to an external USB Type-C hard drive), to be confirmed. The firmware is not yet ready to let me put my SD card in the camera to test out the actual new auto-focus performance and HLG HDR H265 mode. Some other Panasonic approved YouTube users have posted some samples though already.

IGZO inventor, Dr. Shunpei Yamazaki, President of Semiconductor Energy Laboratory (SEL)

Posted by Charbax – August 26, 2017

Dr. Shunpei Yamazaki discovered the Indium–gallium–zinc oxide (IGZO) crystalline structure material for transistors to have a higher mobility than amorphous silicon transistors, and an extremely low off-state current. C-axis aligned crystalline (CAAC) IGZO enables aggressive down-scaling, high reliability, and process simplification of transistors in displays and LSI devices. Listed on over 4,000 US utility patents, Dr. Yamazaki was named in the Guinness Book of World Records as holding the most patents in the world; hailed the most prolific inventor in history by USA Today. His most notable work is on the thin-film transistor -- a significant discovery being a crystalline structure in Indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO) material, which he discovered "by chance" in 2009. Today Dr. Yamazaki is President of the Semiconductor Energy Laboratory (SEL), where he and his team pioneered the unique development of ultra-low-power devices using CAAC-IGZO technology. A joint venture with the Sharp Corporation manufacturing smartphones using crystalline oxide semiconductors (IGZO) is a global first. In 2015 Dr. Yamazaki received the SID (Society for Information Display) Special Recognition Award for "discovering CAAC-IGZO semiconductors, leading its practical application, and paving the way to next-generation displays." His paper on CAAC-IGZO ranked in the top 15 most downloaded papers of Wiley Electrical Engineering and Communications Technology journals, 2014. Dr. Yamazaki is also an IEEE Life Fellow.

Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program

Posted by Charbax – August 24, 2017

The Premium HDMI Cable Certification Program is the new program from the creators of HDMI technology that encompasses additional and enhanced cable testing as well as an authentication and verification program. Cables are tested to ensure they support the full 18Gbps bandwidth from the HDMI 2.0b specification plus an EMI test to ensure cables minimize interference with wireless signals. The program is designed to give end users confidence when purchasing new HDMI cables for their 4K/UltraHD products that may include features such as 4K@60Hz, BT.2020 and HDR. Participating HDMI Adopters can promote their ATC-tested High Speed HDMI Cables as Premium High Speed HDMI Cables or Premium High Speed HDMI Cables with Ethernet using a unique anti-counterfeiting authentication label on their products which can be checked and authenticated using the app on any smartphone. Also watch my video about the new HDMI 2.1 spec and my video about HDMI Alt Mode for USB Type-C.
