As far as consumer electronics is considered the latest talk in the town is about digital hubbub. his device is used as a hub to interconnect various any home devices .Along with the interconnecting capability hub also incorporates several functions like recording play backing etc of data streams from various electronic devices in the house . The electronic devices mentioned include a TV, VCR, Camcorder, personal computers etc.
It consists of both software part and hardware part. Hardware comes along with CPU. Digital signal processing chips in a memory and different ports for interfacing .Software has got 3 layers an inner layer, Middle layer , and an outer layer. These layers are divided on the basis of various functions they have to do.
Various companies is now trying to make their dream possible , as a company which brought digital hubbub for the consumers. Moxi digital (Palo Alto, California ) demonstrated what it called media centre hub at jan 2002 at consumer electronics show. It has PVR , a cd/dvd player innovative user interface software and a wireless home distribution network. In February Digeo Inc. ( Kirkland, Washington) a start-up controlled by Microsoft cofounder Paul Allen, announced plans to build a strikingly similar hub in partnership with Motorola Inc. (Schaumburg, Ill.) and cable company Charter Communications Inc. (St. Louis, Mo.), also controlled by Allen. In March, Moxi and Digeo merged and took on the Digeo name.
The merged company intends to roll out Moxi's software on Motorola's set-top box hardware; it is also moving forward with tests of Moxi media center prototypes among subscribers to Echostar Communications Corp. (Littleton, Colo.), a satellite TV service. Established makers of set-top boxes, including Royal Philips Electronics (Amsterdam, the Netherlands) and Pioneer Corp. (Tokyo)-and, of course, Motorola-are building boxes that include high-speed data connections and home-network capabilities, in addition to the digital TV decoders of ordinary cable systems
Entertainment is the major aspect of any human's life. This brings out the importance of consumer electronics. Consumer electronics play a very important role in today's household entertainment devices such as TV, VCR, music systems like CD player MP3 etc.A lot of innovations are taking place in the field of consumer electronics. The latest talk is about a single device which can interconnect all these entertainment devices and provide many functions such as record , archive, and playback music and videos, organize digital and photo albums , and distribute signal media around the home.
So companies gave birth to a new electronic device which is known as DIGITAL HUBBUB. To Apple and Microsoft, it looks like a computer. To cable and satellite companies like Charter, Echostar, or DirecTv and their suppliers, it's a set-top box. To consumer electronics companies like Philips or Samsung, it's a stereo component. The hub consists of a software part and hardware part .
Hub As A Factotum
Factotum means an employ who does a lot of things. This is what digital hubbub do by recording, archiving, store digital photos and albums and distribute digital media around home. This can be done from sources like cd library, broadcast TV, and the internet. They will also be able to store and play video games. And they will organize all your media files in an easy-to-browse fashion and play them back on demand, making available features such as pause, rewind , and several varieties of skip and fast-forward.
Typically, a hub might incorporate a high-capacity hard-disk drive, a CD/DVD player, a TV tuner, and inputs for digital cameras, digital video, and broadband digital data. Add a cable or digital subscriber line (DSL) modem on the front end of the hub, and the package is fairly complete. Generally the user interface would be a file browser like that of a PC desktop, modified for a TV screen, and a remote control.
