FCC says 700 Mhz now OFF limits.

fcc-logo.jpgUnder a new FCC rule, anyone who uses a wireless microphone (or similar device) that operates in the 700 MHz Band will have to stop operating their wireless microphone (or similar device) no later than June 12, 2010.

To see if this law affects your wireless microphone, check their Manufacturers Equipment list.

Smaller, More Powerful Computers.

niveussm.jpgAs computing becomes ever more powerful, and “Netbooks” offer mobile computing power on the road with low-power chips, diminutive boxes with powerhouse capabilities are not only inevitable- they’re already here. While home theatre machines may be a “hobby” to some electronics companies, others are taking it seriously and offering some horsepower under the hood… Continue reading “Smaller, More Powerful Computers.”

CompactFlash Media Test Results.

cfextiv.jpgWe’ve worked with an early adopter of the Sony HVR-Z7U to test 10 different compact flash cards currently available.
