IT Business Products : Versatile 3D Monitors that Let You Watch and Game with More Content Types

Are you looking for a 3D monitor that lets you enjoy more content types—from movies to games, to content you create using your 3D camera or 3D webcam? Samsung’s 2011 line of 3D monitors and HDTV/monitors not only delivers breakthrough picture quality, they also let you view and interact with a wide variety of 3D content.

Do and See More in 3D

Samsung’s 750 and 950 Series monitors and HDTV/monitors let you enjoy a wide variety of content in 3D, from 3D gaming to 3D movies, 3D internet content, 3D photos, and 3D broadcast channels. You can watch 2D content on all of the 3D monitors, and many of them have real-time 2D to 3D conversion so you can watch 2D content in 3D. Samsung’s 3D monitors are superior to many others on the market because of their versatility. For example, some other 3D displays work only for broadcast, movies or gaming, while 750 and 950 models allow you to do all three.

The Best Possible 2D Experience

You can easily view all 2D content on a Samsung 3D monitor and experience stunning picture quality and color vibrancy without the glare. All 3D monitors have a combination of LED-backlight, 100% sRGB coverage and Samsung’s proprietary Ultra Clear Panel. This breakthrough technology absorbs the available light in a room whether it’s from natural or mechanical sources, and eliminates reflections so colors appear more vibrant—blacks are deeper and contrast is enhanced.

Optimized for Ease of Use

Samsung’s 3D monitor has features to make it so easy to use, while helping you save energy. This monitor uses close to zero watts when it’s in power saving mode. The Eco Motion Sensor alerts the monitor when you sit down and when you walk away, automatically powering it on and off. And, the Eco Light Sensor automatically adjusts the monitor’s brightness to match the ambient lighting in a room. If the room is sunny, the picture shines brighter and in darker surroundings, the intensity is reduced. The result—reduced eye strain and smarter power consumption.

Also, on 950 HDTV/Monitors, it’s easy to share content with other Samsung devices using our proprietary DNLA technology AllShare.

Solution in a Box

Samsung’s 750 and 950 Series Monitors offer a complete 3D solution in the box, including 3D glasses, built-in sync emitter, and middleware.

3D Monitors will be available in 23 and 27 inches. For monitors, look for the following model codes: S23A750D, S27A750D, S23A950D and S27A950D. For HDTV/Monitors look for the following model codes: T23A750, T27A750, T23A950 and T27A950.

As shown at the Consumer Electronics Show. Will be available in Spring 2011.

In no area are we more vulnerable

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

As a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, I am reminded every day that we live in a dangerous world. It is violent and chaotic, and it’s becoming more so all the time. But among the many national security threats that we face, in no area are we more vulnerable, and do we face so great a destructive potential, than the cyber realm. Our power grid, banking system, energy pipelines, air traffic control and other critical systems all are at risk. The recent cyberattack on the Office of Personnel Management is a clear demonstration of our vulnerabilities. It’s no coincidence that our adversaries chose to strike the OPM. Not only did they gain access to the personal information of 22 million current and former federal employees, but they also stole highly sensitive information collected in the security-clearance process. As a former Air Force pilot, I know how extensive and intensely personal these files are. The fact that the attackers were so brazen shows they knew that the benefits of gaining this information far outweighed the risks of getting caught. Because most cyberattacks do not produce the physical devastation of conventional aggression, it’s easy to ignore the destruction that […]

BlackBerry Ltd Prepares For More Cyber-Threats With Medical Hack

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) (TSE:BB) took the stage to demonstrate the way in which a terrorist could access an infusion pump inside a hospital and give patients a lethal morphine dose. The demonstration was held in New York City, during the global security forum conducted by the Canadian firm, which is keen to establish itself as a major provider of security for all kinds of equipment that connect to the internet. BlackBerry QNX, a security expert In the demonstration, the Canadian company showed how a would-be-terrorist got access to the wirelessly connected pump, which is a standard hospital item, hacked its password and issued remote commands on a computer to change the way it dispensed morphine. BlackBerry QNX is largely seen as an operating system that could apparently prevent such attacks on infusion pumps. BlackBerry bought QNX after buying QNX Software Systems in 2010. QNX is also one of the major features in BlackBerry’s latest handset operating system, BlackBerry 10. QNX has become the major platform across every walk of life from power generation systems to wind turbines, nuclear stations and hydroelectricity plans. QNX is in 50 million cars to drive computing and fuel infotainment systems, BlackBerry informed those who attended the […]

Prepare for more cyber attacks on US

Another week, another wave of cyber alarm in America. On Wednesday both the New York Stock Exchange and United Airlines suspended activity for several hours due to mysterious computing problems, while the Wall Street Journal’s website briefly went down. All three insisted that the outages reflected technical hitches, not malicious attack. But many are anxious after past assaults on mighty American companies and agencies. In February Anthem, an insurance company, revealed that cyber hackers had stolen information on 80m customers. The Washington-based Office of Personnel Management said cyber hackers had taken data on millions of federal employees. Companies ranging from retailers to banks have been attacked, too.

US: More Than 21 Million Affected by Government Data Breach

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Hackers stole Social Security numbers, health histories and other highly sensitive data from more than 21 million people, the Obama administration said Thursday, acknowledging that the breach of U.S. government computer systems was far more severe than previously disclosed. The scope of the data breach — believed to be the biggest in U.S. history — has grown dramatically since the government first disclosed earlier this year that hackers had gotten into the Office of Personnel Management’s personnel database and stolen records for about 4.2 million people. Since then, the Obama administration has acknowledged a second, related breach of the systems housing private data that individuals submit during background investigations to obtain security clearances. That second attack affected more than 19 million people who applied for clearances, as well as nearly 2 million of their spouses, housemates and others who never applied for security clearances, the administration said. Among the data the hackers stole: criminal, financial, health, employment and residency histories, as well as information about their families and acquaintances. The new revelations drew indignation from members of Congress who have said the administration has not done enough to protect personal data in their systems, as well as calls for OPM Director Katherine Archuleta and her top deputies to […]

OPM wants $37M more for IT — U.S. cyber warriors fare OK in war game

OPM WANTS $37M MORE FOR IT — The Office of Personnel Management told congressional appropriators it could use another $37 million to migrate its IT systems in the fiscal year starting in October, Dave scoops. The request came in an email sent last Friday, which was a response to congressional inquiries, OPM’s spokesman said. But any formal request for more money in the fiscal year 2016 OPM budget proposal would have to come from the Office of Management and Budget, and no such supplemental request has been sent in, according to a Senate Appropriations aide.

Unlike a “capture the flag”-style competition, the opposing, red team wasn’t aiming to win, but rather “to train the blue team participants,” said Rear Adm. Kevin Lunday, director of exercises and training at U.S. Cyber Command. “They do that by placing them under extreme stress and pressure. … That’s where learning occurs — near the point of failure.” As a result, the red teams raise and lower […]

Risk Evaluation Report Finds Mobile Banking Leaves Some Banks More Vulnerable to Cyber Attacks

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

While mobile banking is no doubt convenient for customers – and banks – there’s a significant downside to the fact that more and more financial institutions are using the technology: an increased risk that your personal information will fall in the hands of a cyber criminal. A new report [PDF] from the U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency suggests that banks’ strategies to implement mobile technology often leaves their infrastructure open to cyber attacks, the Chicago Tribune reports. According to the OCC’s semiannual risk perspective report released on Tuesday, banks are increasingly embracing the use of technology such as cloud computing and mobile banking to stave off the competition. While the ease of mobile banking and other advances can not only save customers time but save banks money, the OCC found that these systems can “increase exposure to technological and operational risk.” “Banks and their employees, customers and third-party service providers continue to be vulnerable to cyberattacks that can compromise data or systems or allow criminals to illegally obtain personally identifiable information,” the report states. The report also found that many banks lacks sufficient response plans if they find themselves on the wrong side of a cyber attack. “There are […]

International Hacker Group Controlled KY GOP’S Website and says More on the Way

The international hacking group, Anon Coders, still had control of the Republican Party of Kentucky’s website until about 11 a.m. Tuesday and told The State Journal they did it to spread the message that Muslims are not terrorists. RPK Chairman Steve Robertson said­­­­­­­ the website went down sometime Saturday afternoon and as of late Tuesday morning he had not been contacted by anyone in the group. “We use the website only for updates. Our information for contributions are housed on a different domain site by itself,” Robertson said. “We only use it (the hacked site) for information and it isn’t connected to our internal databases or servers in the building. It’s been a big inconvenience. We’ve been fortunate.” The Anon Coders hacking team signed the Kentucky GOP’s site with their handles: Slim El, Albanian Attacker, Black Worm, Dr. T3rrOr, ResCool1337, Sys Ghost, AnoaGhost, XghosTny, Verus Noir, Dark Shadaw Tn, Dr.AfenDena, M4Xs4L1M1 and all Muslim Hackers.

Koh Samui mafia crackdown: More tourist centers next

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

The success of crackdowns on criminal gangs operating on the resort island of Koh Samui last week has encouraged police to expand their list of targets to include more tourist destinations nationwide. Acting chief of the Central Investigation Bureau (CIB) Thitirat Nonghanpitak led about 300 police together with military forces in a dawn operation on the resort island on Friday. A combined team of 756 police and military raided 26 spots believed to be the hideouts of powerful people or criminals. They arrested five suspects and confiscated 20 guns and 835 rounds of ammunition as well as three kilogrammes of kratom, a narcotic plant. The decision to look into criminal cases on the island came after local businessman Panas Kao-uthai, 49, was gunned down in a restaurant early this month, apparently as a result of business conflicts among so-called influential figures on the island. His death frightened villagers and caused panic on the island, which is Thailand’s top tourist destination. There was a concern that the high level of crime on the island was tarnishing its reputation as a safe tourist destination. Authorities were urged to speed up their probe into the murder. During the operation, there was a search […]
