Hitachi Unveils Digital Signatures on Stand-Alone Memory Chips

Hitachi Unveils Digital Signatures on Stand-Alone Memory Chips 50°
335w ago - Hitachi has announced anti-counterfeiting functionalities on memory chips without microprocessor such as memory cards, tickets or cartridges.

The Japanese company announced today the development of a mechanism for attesting the authenticity of memory chips using highly secure digital signatures.

Since the mechanism requires neither a CPU nor a computational unit, high security can be attained at a very low cost. As a result, counterfeited or altered memory devices can be recognized as such, with a wide range of applications, including memory cards for digital cameras or handheld video game consoles, cartridges for consumer products, admission tickets or gift coupons.

In order to establish that digital contents are authentic and have not been tampered with, digital signatures usually involve cost-intensive computations and require an important processing power. For instance, in some schemes, large integers with hundreds of digits are multiplied hundreds of times using a powerful CPU.

As a consequence, conventional memory chips without CPU cannot handle digital signatures and are confined to the use of basic identification techniques based for example on serial numbers. Moreover, adding a CPU with sufficient processing power...
 

Sony Unveils 400-Disc Blu-ray Changer at CEDIA

Sony Unveils 400-Disc Blu-ray Changer at CEDIA 50°
338w ago - Sony has put on show its second generation Blu-ray disc changer, which is capable of holding up to 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs or DVDs.

To quote:

The beastly device can gobble up 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs, or DVDs. The first generation of the device that debuted at CEDIA in 2007 was massive–about the size of a refrigerator.

The new Blu-ray Disc Mega Changer prototype has a form factor much more like one of the home theater components we are used to seeing in our entertainment systems--albeit a very bloated one.

You could think of this as the John Candy of Blu-ray changers.
 

Nintendo unveils Wi-Fi Network Adapter for Japan

Nintendo unveils Wi-Fi Network Adapter for Japan 50°
338w ago - Nintendo has unveiled a wireless router/bridge for sale (in Japan) that works to connect your Wii, DS and/or PC to the Internet.

Famitsu (linked above) has more picss of it, including a router/bridge switch. The router costs you 5,800 (US $53). No word on a release outside of Japan, although the Wi-Fi USB Connector has reportedly been discontinued, so it'd make sense to have this as a replacement.

The Wi-Fi Network Adaptor will be available via Nintendo Japan's Web site on September 18.

This appears to be good news for less tech-savvy folks, for which a majority of Nintendo's userbase generally consists of... although almost every standard router available works with both systems already.
 

Electrograph Unveils 3-D Gaming System

Electrograph Unveils 3-D Gaming System 50°
339w ago - Electrograph has recently announced the first ever stand-alone 3D gaming system, with the company stating they will show off the system at the Philips 3D 42 inch LCD display at this week's CEDIA show.

In addition, the system can play many of today's PC games using its proprietary software drivers.

To quote: It's time to chuck those goofy 3-D glasses. Electrograph just announced the first stand-alone 3-D gaming system. The company says they will show off the system with the Philips 3D WOWvx 42-inch LCD display, at this week's CEDIA show.

Using the 1920x1080 LCD display and Electrograph's unnamed, proprietary software drivers, the system can play many of today's PC games. Ready to accommodate multiple players, the system can show off a wide range of viewing angles with "out-of-screen" effects.

"There is nothing more addicting to kids, teens and even adults than modern video games," says Jeff Jerome, Electrograph's director of product management. "In fact, many underutilized home theaters are now serving as supersized game rooms. So imagine the appeal of true 3-D gaming–without the glasses–that the whole family can play."

Amen brother!
 

Sony unveils 240Hz LCD TV

Sony unveils 240Hz LCD TV 250°
340w ago - Sony has been at or close to the forefront of TV technology ever since the good old Trinitron. Today the company went even further by introducing the first ever 240Hz LCD TV and the world's thinnest TV.

Hold your breath until December (in the US), because that's when Sony's 240Hz LCD TVs will be available to the public. Currently LCD TVs are topping out at 120Hz for consumers, and that's already a significant improvement in speed over the standard 50-60Hz of normal (for want of a better term) LCD TVs.

The new 240Hz technology promises to provide the smoothest, most lifelike, movement ever from an LCD TV and will be great for gamers using next-gen consoles especially. We're still a little concerned about 240Hz with movies though. As it is 120Hz makes TV and movies look a little fake.

The 240Hz technology will be available in the KDL-46W1 and KDL-40W1 that boasts full-HD, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, BRAVIA Engine 2 and 24p support.

This isn't the only big step forward from Sony though, they have also shown off the KDL-40ZX1 LCD TV that is just 9.9mm thick. It's not thin on features though. With BRAVIA Engine 2, 120Hz technology and 3,000:1 contrast ration, imagine having one of these bad boys in your room!
