FaceVsion of Taiwan now has added HDMI-input and Full HD 1920×1080 HD video-conferencing in the new FVexpress Pro card, as well as they still have the FVexpress combo with a new higher quality HD webcam included and a mini-PCI module that can be integrated in certain compatible netbooks (when the Express Card slot is not present on the netbooks) to integrate their HD video-conferencing directly into the netbooks.
What this technology from FaceVsion does is that it integrates HD H264 encoding and decoding into their express card device, or into their mini-PCI module, for netbook/laptop manufacturers to integrate or for end-consumers to buy as an express card solution or as a mini-PCI module to install inside of the netbook or laptop.
FaceVsion’s Qulive software automatically adapts the upload and download bitrates to and from each party according to the stable and reliable bandwidth that is available, it also support SIP to SIP connections and even IP to IP direct connections, thus it could be perfectly suitable for implementation at the Enterprise, for large, medium or small businesses. But also, especially, for just $119, this FaceVsion HD video-conferencing solution could easilly reach end consumers in masse if they manage to offer the right combination of product and value proposition.
Imagine sitting in your living room with a HD camcorder or cheaper HD webcam on your HDTV, and the same for your grand parents wherever in the world they live, simply sit back and have a real-time HD quality discussion in each of your sofa’s, the siye of a 42″ HDTV making it look like you are nearly sitting in the same room!

It’s not a DSLR, it’s not a digicam, what is it? I dunno, it’s thin though and the quality of the pictures should be fine but there seems to only be the live view LCD viewfinder.
It records a stereo image in VGA resolution. Put on your 3D glasses and click on following link to see the actual 3D video as filmed using this camera:
Nikon coolpix 1000pj shown at IFA 2009, it has got a built-in projector!
This is a 5″ E-Ink reader, an awesome design and a cool user interface, it’s got also accelerometers so you can tilt the screen to read it both vertically and horizontally.
The 1080p projectors are getting really affordable. This one has 2000 ANSI lumen, 40’000 contrast ratio, HDMI and Component input (of course).
Here’s Huawei’s first Android phone sold exclusively on T-Mobile in the markets that T-Mobile is selling in. It has a decent 3.5″ 320×240 touchscreen.
It runs Maemo 0.9 embedded Linux on a Marvell ARM processor. It has 4GB built-in flash memory with MicroSD memory expansion slot. Integrated 3G, WiFi on a nice 800×480 4.3″ touchscreen. It’s part of the big embedded Linux push by China Telecom to bring more functional smart mobile devices in the hands of Chinese people and ready to export worldwide. Stephen Kwan, Director of http://www.chinaoptima.com shows us the product.
4.8″ 800×480 Android Tablet with built-in GPS, 8GB flash storage, it can playback video formats up to D1 resolution, it has WiFi built-in as well, 3G could be built-in as well “in the next 3 months”. Philip Zhou, Overseas Sales Manager at http://www.smit.com.cn shows it to us in this video.
They are not announcing any price at this moment, I am guessing that this Android MID could be sold for cheap, around or less than 200 dollars.
Scroll forward to 4min in the video for a review of the Sony NWZ-X1050 oled walkman. Sony is going to sell only 1000 pieces on the German market, probably it’s because the oled screen is hard and complicated to manufacture at this moment.
Sony has a pretty huge impressive booth, kind of like typical for Sony. They must be spending millions of euros on this interior design thing, unless they re-use lights and stuff at each conference. Anyways, the Sony hall is big and fun.
Here’s a Sony alternative to the Flip camera craze. Unlike the flip, this camera actually flips so that you can also film yourself while you can look at the LCD if your makeup is okay. It records in 1440×1080 at around 6mbit/s according to my calculations.
Sony are releasing some new pretty cool touchscreen based E-Ink readers. Here I show you the interface a bit. It seems to work quite alright. All that’s needed now is that they release an unlocked HSDPA and WiFi version runing something like Google Android to add features and basic but optimized Internet text content reading features.
It’s Windows CE on ARM11, don’t expect it to be as responsive as would be an Android tablet on an ARM Cortex A8 processor. Though it’s definitely really cool that Toshiba has decided to invest in R&D in this field. And given the huge interest from the press, it is a good move, and Toshiba could turn out to be one of those to provide good embedded products to the mass market.
Here is a pretty good looking Android smartphone by Samsung, this is Samsung’s first Android product. It comes with a good looking 3.2″ AMOLED touchscreen. Although the screen I think is too small for on-screen keyboard to be usable enough. I get confused as well for how to navigate on this Smartphone, I cannot find the Home button, but it’s also that I haven’t used Android much yet.
A good looking 7″ portable DVB-T player, that also supports to record DVB-T video on an SD card as well as play Mpeg2 format videos and Jpeg photos.
This device is so far the most awesome I have seen at IFA 2009, it’s a 5″ Smartbook, one of the worlds first that will be released running on an ARM Cortex A8 processor by Freescale. Running Ubuntu 9.04 for ARM optimized for this ARM processor.
In this video I boot-up the machine (you probably wouldn’t need to boot it up really, it’s got 10 hours battery life and can probably go into standby just fine with instant resume from standby). I go on certain websites like Engadget.com over WiFi and I ask the Sharp PC-Z1 products representative a bunch of questions.
This is the video of the full actual keynote presentation in Berlin at IFA 2009 for the Toshiba JournE home media tablet by Marco Perino, General Manager, EMEA Digital Products and Services at Toshiba Europe Gmbh.
I also posted a close-up video interview with him answering technical questions about it at: http://techvideoblog.com/ifa/toshiba-journe-home-media-tablet-at-ifa-2009/
