In addition to great picture quality, High-Definition Televisions (HDTVs) like the HP-R4262 have numerous connections to simplify interfacing to external equipment. One of the newest solutions is the High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) connection. A number of key manufacturers of consumer electronics defined the connector as a next-generation digital interface specification for consumer electronics products. HDMI carries both the video and audio signals and has sufficient bandwidth for future enhancements. Resembling a USB connector, the HDMI connection is smaller than the Digital Visual Interface (DVI) connector that just handles high-definition video.
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
