EGT Inc. HEMi (http://rbi.ims.ca/4922-550). This HEMi (Head End Micro) is a high-density encoder for off-site insertion of local channels for multi-dwelling units (MDUs) or closed communities. The unit multiplexes, modulates and converts up to nine community channels, including security cameras, community programming or events calendars. To provide local channels throughout these closed communities, the HEMi encodes the local program to MPEG-2, multiplexes the signals to form a new Multi-Program Transport Stream (MPTS), and then modulates and up-converts the MTPS for re-insertion back into the RF cable spectrum. The unit uses an embedded processor to provide a simple start-up procedure that requires minimal initial configuration.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
