Internet Telephony

June 28, 2009  //  Posted by: Techie  //  Category: Broadband & Wireless, Communication

Internet TelephoneInternet telephony or Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is an umbrella term for transmission technologies resulting in delivery of voice communication over Internet. It can be voice, fax or any such thing. The idea is to refrain from Public Switched Telephone Network and use Internet instead. This is done by altering the analog codes into digital ones and then modifying or translating them into an Internet Protocol.

Today, VoIP is largely implanted via H.323, IMS, SIP, and RTP. Broadband Internet Access Services have let us indulge in mass-usage of Voice over Internet protocol.

The services can be bestowed via an analog provider fixed between a telephone jack and an IP network; Wi-Fi’s that won’t require a computer; and a softphone that can seamlessly run without dedicated hardware. For the purpose of connecting switching stations and aligning telephone network providers, VoIP is turning out to be a rousing mantra of present-day technology.

PBX, Communication, Office gadgetsPrivate Branch Exchange (PBX) differs from a general public carrier in that it offers its services to a particular office or business only. It can ramify into Private Automatic Branch Exchange (PABX) and Electronic Private Automatic Branch Exchange (EPABX). PBX is used for connecting intra business telephones to each other. It utilizes trunk lines for connecting the phones to the general trunk line so that common public can access them.

Unlike key systems and hybrid systems, PBX systems select their outgoing lines in a fully automatic way. PBX systems include an internal switching network, logic cards, UPS, stations or telephone sets and console and interconnecting wiring.

Today, PBX technology uses Internet protocols for telephonic transmission. They are VoIP oriented and are also known as IPBX. Earlier, Private Branch Exchange meant a lot of manual control and clerical operators. Today, IPBX has brought it within means of automation and hence far bigger data packets can be availed.

Thermal wave imaging

Thermal Wave, TechnologyThermal wave imaging is utilized for finding out the thinning of aircraft skin owing to corrosion. It secures subcutaneous corrosion through imaging and at the same time generates electrical impulse. The system works by sending heat pulse directly to the material from the surface. Here, there pulse suffers thermal reflection. As a result, local cooling rate present at the surface is perceptibly altered.

Through the thermal wave imaging apparatus, you can get the best image of both the surface as well as the subsurface. A central processor controls the memory of the image. Printing has torn all the boundaries and presently it is mingled with the facet of imaging. It is here that thermal wave imaging wins our heart. The process also uses a modulating circuit that matches up as an intensity regulator too. It brings out an optical beam that unfailingly registers constant amplitude despite any change in the heating laser.

Inkjet printerIt is often fascinating to see the art of printing or lithography. Inkjet printers are an innovation in this respect where ink or melted and adhesive liquid are blown with heat and then put on paper in type format.

The ink is stabilized in cartridges into which an electrical current runs with the assistance of internal dynamo. The process is called photolithography. It is then jetted on the typing area and comes out on paper the way you type. Inkjet printers may require servicing as a slight difference in its heating console may allow sharp spills or printing mistakes and illegible pages.

Canon and HP are forerunners in the field and use thermal, electrostatic, and other techniques to make stable printers. They also perform scanning and record vital information for you. Many ace companies for their daily work prefer Inkjet printers. Its only fight is with bubble printers as of now.

Solar powered notebook

Laptop, Notebook, TechLaptops and notebooks are slimmer and portable versions of personal computers. They sometimes use great power and that is a negative factor, as battery backup is not generally high. In this context, solar powered notebook is a superb contraption.

Solar powered notebook uses the power of solar energy and work on that pretext. It may dwindle in the moonlight, but the positive factor of absolute lack of electrical expense is brilliant. It also doubles up as a normal notebook where the solar charger is extracted out of the machine, and electrical connections provided through USB drives.

It has not yet caught up the general imagination, but with some improvement, it might be a major turnover. Solar powered notebook does not compromise on its features of brilliant processor, good memory and large screen. Many companies are pondering on this solar concept, as it would then be feasible also for village schools and workers.

Dpi technology in latest televisions

June 22, 2009  //  Posted by: Techie  //  Category: Gadgets, Printers, Technology

PrintersPrinting photos or video resolutions are an accumulation of three basic colors: Red, blue and green. The manner in which these three overlap or disintegrate make the contrasts for visuals. You may make contrast between colors owing to how these three colors react.

In total, their reactions may be divided into portions of the screen and even at a micro level. When that is reduced to an inch, the number of colored dots you see gives you the reading of how good or bad a television is. Great televisions have a high number of dots per inch (DPI), conjoined into pixels.

If these pixels were visible, the striations would be awkward. Fluent visuals, especially in liquid crystal format, would allow the pixels to be obsolete to naked eye. Dpi technology is also a great asset of printing and ace printers use high number of Dpi. If you see the projection in draft, you will get the picture.
