The author is the head of technical and infrastructure department at German national public broadcaster Deutschlandradio. The reception of radio programs with smartphones is becoming increasingly important for radio makers, particularly due to young people’s tendency to use their hand-held devices for a wide range of purposes — information and entertainment, social media networks, smart home and smart speakers, amongst others. There is no doubt that broadcasters have to be present on that platform with both linear and non-linear audio, with social media and the various functions of the internet. At first glance, 5G broadcasts seem to be a promising solution for the future of broadcasting, and a viable solution to bring radio to the smartphone — one device and one transmission standard on one transmitter network. But who will benefit from this — the user, the mobile network operators, radio broadcasters or the industry as a whole? Physical laws for radio communication are still valid for 5G as for DAB and all the other broadcasting and telecommunication schemes. From the well-known Shannon limit of 1948 we know that a minimum of energy per bit is necessary in order to provide an ...

Nortek Launches Smart Device-Based Credential Management Ecosystem

Nortek’s Linear BluePass removes reliance on keyfobs by letting end users utilize Bluetooth-enabled smartphones as a credential for their existing access control system. CARLSBAD, Calif. — Nortek Security & Control (NSC) announces it is now shipping the new Linear BluePass, a credential management ecosystem that combines smart device-based electronic credentials with the BluePass mobile credential management Cloud and a multi-technology Bluetooth/125 kHz proximity reader. The BluePass ecosystem features NSC’s patent-pending Credential-To-Go cards, representing a physical token that acts like a one-time-use mobile credential credit card, according to the company. Each Credential-to-Go card unlocks between 5 and 100 mobile credentials in a dealer’s BluePass Cloud account. Using the BluePass Cloud service, dealers and admins can quickly assign the credentials to users, who use it to activate the BluePass app on their smartphone. Once activated, the app communicates with the BluePass multi-tech reader installed at the point of entry. To simplify transitions from legacy card or fob systems, NSC says the BluePass multi-tech reader is compatible with popular 26 to 37-bit 125kHz car...

Kinsler: It seems that our major source of recreation is work

This conversation is moderated according to USA TODAY’s community rules. Please read the rules before joining the discussion. Our friends Dave and Lynn gave us a splendid mahogany dining room table to replace a massive, vaguely Teutonic specimen I rescued from Grossman’s Bargain Outlet 19 years ago.  That latter showpiece went into our shared office to split the oft-disputed workspace lengthwise. Half the table itself is protected by a sheet of plywood and serves as my clock repair workbench. The other half, consigned to my beloved, accommodates documents related to her several governing-board positions. Lining the office walls are 18 bookshelves, my clock tool cabinet, two computer desks, eight file cabinets, and a pair of cow horns I bought in San Antonio.  Accessories include two telephones, two printers, the answering machine, Natalie’s awards, our Wi-Fi router, a pink ceramic swan at which she expressed revulsion, and a drill press. Towering above the table’s spousal boundary is the rickety M Kinsler Tool Rack, a vertical creation of poorly-joined scrap lumber and ten Harbor Freight magnetic tool holders bristling with sharp-pointed clock repair tools.  The Tool Rack ...

Leading the masses: Structurlam expands Okanagan mass timber operation

Looking through a catalogue of Penticton, B.C.-based Structurlam’s past projects is like flipping through an interior design magazine. Large, often curved glue-laminated (glulam) timbers grace stately interiors while the cross-laminated timber (CLT) panels blend in as floors, ceilings and walls. It’s easy to see why developers would choose wood as a naturally beautiful building material. Structurlam – North America’s first manufacturer of CLT – knows it’s about much more than that. Mass timber, they say, is a smarter way to build, and they are ramping up production to meet the growing demand. This year the B.C. company expanded yet again by adding another manufacturing facility, increasing their capacity by one third. Mass timber is defined as large prefabricated engineered wood building products comprising glulam, CLT, dowel-laminated timber, laminated veneer lumber, and nail-laminated timber. An expanding body of research shows, when compared to concrete or steel, mass timber products are lighter, cheaper, easier to construct, react better during fire events, and are significantly more environmentally friendly. All this adds up to a better building material. But, as with any ...

Why won’t my Xbox One turn on? How to troubleshoot it

1. An unresponsive Xbox One usually involves an issue with the power supply. First, ensure the power cable is firmly inserted in the back of the console and that the plug is properly connected to an AC wall outlet.  2. If all is in order there, next check the outlet itself, either with a digital multimeter or simply by connecting a different electrical device to the outlet and seeing if it works. Once it becomes clear the Xbox One itself is the problem, it’s time to try a power reset – the system’s internal power supply might be at issue, and note that we are here discussing the Xbox One X and S consoles; we’ll cover the original Xbox One in a moment. Customized Cable 1. To do a power reset, disconnect the power cable from the rear of the console and wait a full ten seconds. Now, reconnect the cable, then press the Xbox button on the front of the system. 2. Wait 10 seconds, then reconnect the power supply to the wall, then the console to the power supply.

Carver Will Start Delivering Its Electric Leaning Machine In September

Back in 1994, the Netherlands surprised the world with a very unique machine, the Carver One. It had a steering wheel, but looked and behaved like a motorcycle, being able to lean in curves. Sadly, it died in 2009. Toyota supplied its engines and decided volumes were not interesting to maintain that. But the leaning technology kept the company alive. And September will see the first customers receive a brand-new Carver. An electric one. The company said engine supply was what killed the Carver One, but it was expensive and too different to have the right to cost €30,000 (~$33,600). So the volumes were much smaller than expected: only 250 were ever built. The new Carver shows the company has learned that lesson well. Instead of being a machine that goes from 0 to 62 mph (0 to 100 km/h) in 8.2 s and reaches a top speed of 115 mph (185 km/h), it is defined by its manufacturer as an ENV, or enclosed narrow vehicle, similar to a BMW C1. With that, it demands at least a scooter license to be driven. It is also much cheaper than its predecessor, at €7,990 – a little less than $9,000. Top speed is limited to 28 mph (45 km/h) and the 5.3 kWh battery pack is enough to make the 330 kg Carv...
