A Communication Situation: Analogue or Digital: Which is Best?

audioWith a great deal of information on the web about radio earpiece’s it’s hard to find the top and generally truthful articles. here is a piece of writing from a reputable website that i believe as accurate, do not quote me on it but please read and enjoy

Analogue and digital communications each have their supporters as well as their detractors. Each technology has its plus points as well as its drawbacks, but neither are hugely well understood by the average client. So here’s what we’re going to do; a handy little puff-piece detailing which type of two-way radio is best for your specific needs.

OK, so, first, let’s look at the differences between analogue and digital communications.

Analogue

Firstly, analogue technology translates information into radio waves in order to convey it over long distances. The more the wave may be compressed, the clearer the signal can ultimately become, and with less noise as well.

Analogue technology records waveforms as they are and translates them that way, as opposed to its digital equivalent, which samples and records waveforms first before transmitting them. However, analogue devices tend to consume much more power.

Analogue radios are also inherently more affordable than their digital counterparts. Digital devices can cost a lot of money and, because they are an emerging technology, new models can potentially be rendered ‘old hat’ within a relatively short span of use, whereas analogue technology requires far less upgrading.

The downside here, however, is that the end for analogue two-way radios is definitely in sight. Digital is clearly going to be the way forward.

Digital

Digital technology operates on a very different principal. While analogue translates information into radio waves (as we discussed earlier), digital technology instead translates the same information into a binary format (essentially zeroes and ones). This requires a shared language between the sending and receiving devices; otherwise the signal cannot be decoded.

Digital technology samples analogue waveforms, assigns a set of numbers to them and then records them. Ergo, digital radios are far less likely to be interrupted by signal degradation, outside noise and other interruptions, largely because most noise responses are analogue in nature.

Digital signal processing is almost instant, as digital sampling works at 8000 samples per second. The difference between digital signal processing and analogue is therefore negligible.

Finally, digital devices tend not to draw as much power as analogue devices.

Which one for me?

So, now that’s out of the way – which is right for you?

Ultimately, when it comes to two-way radio usage, analogue radios will serve you well, but not for much longer, it seems.

Start by looking at health and safety concerns. An analogue radio is easy to use, highly durable and totally instantaneous. This is, in short, technology that saves lives. This is one reason that these radios are still employed by everyone from police officers to construction workers the world over. The other reason is cost. Analogue radios are still much cheaper than their digital counterparts.

Digital radios have a much wider signal range and a clearer sound, but, as we said, they can be cost prohibitive.

Overall, if it’s outdoor, manual work (where quick, efficient communication is vital) if cost is an issue, if safety and security are major factors and if reliability is key, an analogue radio is a reasonable choice, but could be slightly short-sighted given the massive improvements made by digital technology in recent years. It may be wiser to simply bite the bullet and spend extra over the short term in order avoid spending considerably more over the long term.

If you want to get a jump on the competition, if you want to be up to date and have your workforce operate the best technology money can buy, then digital is certainly the way forward.

What about hybrids?

A device that covers both grounds is a great choice, provided that it is still easy to use in a crisis and bug free. If you are pushed, then a digital two-way is probably best. The technology has come a long way now and definitely represents the future of two-way communications.

So there you go, that’s our answer.

PS4 Headset Companion App Now Available

headphonesWhat would you do if i stated I had found a earphone article that isnt only interesting but informative also? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the educational, superb and appealing editorial

For those of you with Pulse Wireless Headsets, heres a bit of good news. The companion app, that lets you set different audio profiles for different games, is now available for PlayStation 4.

You can grab it from the web store here and start tinkering to your hearts content. Unfortunately, PlayStation fans in the UK still cant buy the new 7.1 surround Gold headset that Sony is confusingly calling Wireless Stereo Headset 2.0?. That was advertised as being out yesterday but weve been unable to find any UK retailer stocking it and weve heard no further news of it from Sony. It is available in other regions though, so maybe its just having trouble getting through the floods.

The companion app is totally free, as you would expect, and it also works with the GTA V branded Pulse units. Currently it has audio settings for game, music, movie, shooter, fighting, techno, hip-hop, action and horror with more promised soon. You can also can expect to see specific audio settings designed to get the absolute best from upcoming PlayStation games. Those should arrive around the same time as the games they cater for and will be visible within the app itself.

Why Does Ramon Keep His Bluetooth Access Off? So Hackers Can’t Steal My Data.

What would you do if i stated I had found a radio earpiece article that isn’t only fascinating but informative as well? I knew you wouldn’t believe me, so here it is the informative, excellent and interesting article

When I give presentations on security, especially mobile security, I stress that it’s important for mobile professionals to turn their Bluetooth devices OFF. The reason for this is that hackers can access your mobile devices through their Bluetooth connectivity. Think I’m joking? Symantec writes about it here.
(I know many you think “Bluetooth” is a headset for your cell phone. NO. Bluetooh is a wireless technology that many mobile devices – like wireless headsets use – to connect to other devices).
W32.Flamer is possibly the only Windows based threat we have encountered which uses Bluetooth. It is yet another indicator that W32.Flamer is not only exceptional, but that it is a comprehensive information gathering and espionage tool. The CrySyS laboratory has previously documented the technical details of Bluetooth in W32.Flamer. But, what does this actually mean for potential victims targeted by Flamer? What can an attacker accomplish using Bluetooth?
The Bluetooth functionality in Flamer is encoded in a module called “BeetleJuice”. This module is triggered according to configuration values set by the attacker. When triggered it performs two primary actions:

The first is to scan for all Bluetooth devices in range. When a device is found, its status is queried and the details of the device recorded-including its ID-presumably to be uploaded to the attacker at some point.

The second action is to configure itself as a Bluetooth beacon. This means that a computer compromised by W32.Flamer will appear when any other Bluetooth device scans the local area. And there is more. In addition to enabling a Bluetooth beacon, Flamer encodes details about the infected computer (see Figure 1) and then stores these details in a special ‘description’ field.

Foc.us mark I tDCS headset review

My basic review of a new headphone it starts up well, looks pretty awesome, is easy to run and really power efficient, the earphone really is a top quality item. Im happy I bought it, read more below.

Overclocking. Most gamers like to do this with their PCs to squeeze the last bit of performance out of them for that new game they have. Up until now this is been all about the silicon-based hardware, but what if you could overclock your own brain to make it faster.

Foc.us with its tDCS gaming headset claims that it can do just that. The headset uses a technique called transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to increase the plasticity of your brain. This is says will make your synapses fire faster.

In other words, it passes a current through your skull and across your brain. This is said to improve your focus, reaction time and ability to learn new skills. While primarily targeted at gamers, this device aims to help you overclock at just about everything.

The current passes from anode to cathode on the headset and these are placed over the pre-frontal cortex part of your brain. This passing of electrons through the brain should, by all accounts, make your neurons more excitable. When the current is removed, the neurons are claimed to have additional neuroplasticity.

At 179, the headset is squarely aimed at adults with a bit of cash (in fact the manufacturer warns under 18s against using the device). The headset itself doesnt look too dissimilar to wraparound Bluetooth headphones. The headset comes in a stylish box also containing eight reusable sponges, a micro-USB cable, a manual and warranty booklet.

Once the electrodes (there are four of them) are placed correctly (just over the eyebrows), the headset delivers around 0.8 and 2.0mA of current. The setting for gamers is about 1mA for five minutes. The timings can be adjusted for up to 40 minutes.

The headset uses Bluetooth 4.0 to communicate with most iOS devices (iPhone 4s or higher, iPad 3 or higher or iPod Touch 5th generation). An Android app is in the works but with no news of when that will see the light of day. The iOS app could do with a bit of polish but the manufacturers are aware of this and say a better version is in development.

To start the process. We started the app and placed the headset in ready mode by touching the buttin on the headset for three to four seconds. Touching Bluetooth at the bottom of the app screen should show the headset. Once that appears we touched connect to pair the two devices.

Once that is done, we tapped the current slider to change the current level. Afterwards you can adjust the duration of the current. There are modes that the headset can deliver current; continuous, pulse, sinus, noise and fake. Once thats selected, the session starts.

During the session, we noticed a tingling sensation, but not unpleasant, just weird. It feels a bit like one of those pads you can use to alleviate pain by running current over the affected part. After a while our forehead started feeling a little sweaty.

Over the last few days we have been regularly using the headset. While we cant conclusively say it has improved the speed of our brain or whether it has improved game play, it may will do with continued use.

Wireless Spy Earpiece – A Device To Help In Covert Operations To Communicate Hands Free

Thanks for reading my blog, here’s a piece i really loved reading. With their authorization i’m able to repost it. I write lots of my own content pieces, but occasionally post other articles i find interesting, thanks for reading.

headphonesThis Wireless Spy Earpiece can easily set up with your mobile phone, radio, recorder, Mp3 player or any other device.
As this earpiece is placed in your ear cannel and assist for sending message can barely detectable by any one. This spy Bluetooth earpiece kit also has a microphone that can be use for two way communication.

How Does Spy Earpiece Bluetooth Work?
There is a key in the transmitter that assists for transfer any audio from a cell phone or mp3 player to the Spy Mini Earpiece. This transmitter is available in the market in several forms. For instance the transmitter may be within a neck loop which can be easily worn around the users neck and as this is very well connected with your cell phone or mp3 player by way of its earphone hollow.

Not just with neck loop you may get this with everyday object like a pair of specs, with a Pen or even with a Bluetooth watch. Simultaneously, you can attach your small microphone to the neck loop, pen or spaces through which user can directly do two way communication.

How to Use the Wireless Spy Earpiece?

The usage of this earpiece depends upon the information, you want to receive. For instance, if you wish to receive your pre-recorded speech during the presentation on an mp3 player, then play this device back to yourself at that time. And if you just want to hear the audio from your mp3 player then just connect up your mp3 player to neck loop available in most Bluetooth earpiece kits, and wear a spy mini earpiece.

As long as the battery will be inserted to the earpiece you can enjoy the audio from you mp3 player in the earpiece.
On the other hand if you wish to have assistance from other party at the time of your speech or presentation then you just need to start your conversation with your team just few minutes before the presentation starts. For this you may either connect your neck loop to the cell phone or other objects like pen, watch etc.

Before inserting your earpiece into your ear cannel just make sure that you have correctly inserted your battery. Now your team can easily hear your speech and assist you throughout the presentation. The same procedure can be applied at the time of interview or exam.
With the help of this exam cheating earpiece you can be easily succeed in your exams without taking any pressure.

As all these Bluetooth devices are well connected with your cell phone so you can easily talk back to the other party during the speech, presentation or interview. Before these spy Bluetooth earpiece are used just for security purpose but now everyone can easily use this device and be successful in any field.
