QUICKY: July 1st, 2010

Happy Canada Day readers!

  • Christie Digital picked up some awards for its MicroTiles and projectors. The two MicroTile awards in particular were the Janus de l’Industrie Award from the French Institute of Design (Institut Francais du Design) for outstanding creative products in the field of industrial design and at InfoComm 2010, System Contractor News and InfoComm International presented Christie MicroTiles with the Most Innovative Video Display Product award and the Green AV award.
  • Icron Technologies of Burnaby, British Columbia, will be coming out with hardware to challenge HDMI's dominance in the A/V industry. The new hardware will drive USB beyond its five meter limit with a chip they are designing to drive uncompressed video more than 100 meters over Cat5 cables, powerline, or 802.11n. The Icron approach is a point-to-point link and does not support Ethernet.
