X-Digital's MSL384 Satellite Receiver streams digital audio to hotels and apartment complexes requires digital processing with high density and low power. By converting digital satellite signals to FM analog signals, X-Digital's satellite receiver allows reception by standard consumer audio receivers. X-Digital's engineers chose Analog Devices' ADSP-BF531 Blackfin processor for high-density MPEG 1 Layer 2 Audio decoding. Since each processor handles eight MPEG 1 Layer 2 Audio streams and has a Visual DSP++ 4.0 kernel, it can process multiple digital audio signals. With this capability, the satellite receiver avoids the need to install a satellite dish for every room or apartment.
The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
