The small screen is all set to become even smaller. Television broadcasters are eyeing ways to reach mobile phone users. For sometime now, downloads of video clips of TV programmes/serials have been available in India, both for mobile phones and computer screens. Soon, it will be possible to view entire live telecasts of programmes on mobiles phones. It’s just the beginning and while the technology part has been more or less ironed out, broadcast and content strategies need to be worked out.

How TV works on Mobile ?

1 A head-end on the ground (a transmission centre with one or more dish antenna) captures digital TV signals from a satellite.

2 The signal are processed and then, through a 200-300 m tower, these are transmitted to surrounding areas within a radius of 30 Km.

3 A DVB-enabled cellphone handset receives the signal and a subscriber to the service is able to see live TV programmes on his mobile.

4 The set up also allows a reverse path flow from handsets to the transmitter, sending information on usage patterns, audience voting messages, etc.

Is this the end of road for Hard Disk Drive ?

Is this the end of road for Hard Disk Drive ?

This might well be the beginning of the end for the hard disk drive. In May, Dell became the first manufacturer to market a laptop using flash memory instead of a hard drive and other manufacturers will be joining the company before the year’s end with Solid State technology (SSD) of their own. This is a very good news for users.

Hard drives use “ferromagnetic” storage media to record data. The surface of special metal plates is magnetised. On the other hand Solid State Disk works purely digitally. The fundamental difference between Solid State Disk and its other flash storage and Hard Disk drive lies in the fact that flash technology has no moving parts. Solid State Disk is already in use in cell phones and MP3 players.
