Toshiba to offer 3D LCD TV Glasses for free

LCD is the abbreviation of Liquid Crystal Display which is used in almost all kind of display devices like monitors, television, motor display panels, digital instruments etc. LCD is very flat and thin visual display and it uses the light modulation attribute of to provide crisp and clear display from liquid crystals.

Earlier computer monitors and television were dependent on CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) technology which was very bulky in size and was power consuming as well. Although the discovery and research on LCD was started in 1988, but the actual use of LCD in computer and electronic equipment started in 2008. Since then it has vanished all other type of display motions from the marker as it is clear, light, and reliable and takes very less space to fit in. LCD monitor do not face the problem of image burn an it does not contain phosphors.

The latest development in LCD television is Glass-free 3D LCD television. 3D is tree-dimensional representation of the graphics used in computer or on your television but earlier you need to have special goggles to get the real 3D experience on theatre or on television. The new glass-free 3D LCD TV will eliminate the need of these special goggles and you can enjoy any 3D movie or game on at your home on you LCD TV.

Recently, Toshiba had announced that company will be selling glass-free 3D LCD televisions in Japan.

How to Connect Coaxial Cable Connectors

Coaxial cables were first invented in the year 1929; however they were only made commercially available by 1941. Back then, coaxial cables were made of copper, though the present day cables use a variety of other metals as well. The coaxial cables are specifically used for connecting purposes requiring cables to carry signals which are considered sensitive to RF fields. For this particular reason, these cables are generally used in wire cables and television systems.

Making of coaxial cables

A Coaxial cable is like any other cable with the difference that it has its inner wire shielded by an outer sheath which is conductive in nature, which in turn is covered by a non-conductive material. For all those looking to ask how to connect coaxial cable connecters, read on for a comprehensive step-by-step guide.

Types of connectors

Most often, connectors used for home installations are F-style connectors which come in two types: screw on and crimp style. While screw on connectors are not considered as safe and perfect as crimp style, they are easier to connect.

How to connect coaxial cables connectors

  • The first step begins by identifying the male and female connectors of the coaxial cable. Male connectors will have a wire sticking out in centre, while female connector will have a space for sticking in the centre wire. Most of the coaxial connectors are screw fittings, which have a wire sticking out for making contact with the female fitting, placed on video equipment or receiver.
  • In case the male coaxial connector is not available or is damaged beyond repair, it is best to make a new one. The reason is that a corroded, damaged or missing centre conductor will result in extremely poor signal quality. Hence, in order to avoid this, you can make another one.
  • First you will need to strip the outer non-conductive cover off the outer sheath for about half inch in length.
  • While stripping the cable, though, ensure that you do not damage the wire mesh. Now stretch the wire mesh covering the inner wire. In the meantime, strip the remaining 3/8 inch of the non-conductive coating at the end of wire, thus leaving the conductor in centre bare.
  • Now attach an end fitting into the end of the wire ensuring that the centre conductor extends past the screw area of the connector. Then again, ensure that the center conductor is still not covered by plastic and the outer shield is not cross connecting or shorting with the screw portion of the center conductor and connector.
  • Now that the connector is ready, simply attach the centre conductor to the female receiver and screw the entire set-up or connector tightly.

For best results, you can buy the crimpers, cutters and strippers which are available in the market, especially for the coaxial cables. However, ensure that you buy the right ones depending on the diameter of the cable. Then again, cable TV signals tend to leak if you do not connect the cables properly. Hence, always ensure that your cable connector is perfect; else you may get bad reception and the leaked signal may interfere with other devices as well!

What are the bumps at the end of computer cables?

Every computer user must have gone seen the bumps on the ends of their computer cables. Blue color or white color bumps at the end of the computer cable, the end at which they are connected to the computer. You must have asked yourself why are these bumps for and why can’t the wires be straight and simple. Here are the answers to all your questions regarding the bumps at the end of the cables:

  • The Bumps at the end of the cables of computer peripherals are known as Ferrite Chokes or even Ferrite Beads. They are made up of non-resistant electronic member composed of ferromagnetic compounds that contain iron and trace amounts of nickel, zinc, or manganese oxides.  They have a property which allows them to install high resistance to high frequency signals and low resistance to lower frequency signals. Thus only reducing the noise in the system.
  • The reduction of noise is done by absorbing the electronic signal and then releasing it in the form of a small amount of energy.  They are inductors with high reactance in certain frequencies of the electromagnetic spectrum. They are mainly utilized and provided in the end to reduce the EMI (electromagnetic interference) and RFI (radio-frequency interference). They are characteristics of impedance which can be used to as filters and safeguards to muffle unwanted interference in electronic circuits. Random noises are often created due to electromagnetic and radio waves residing in the current wires and even signal wires.
  • These high frequency signals called noises can cause other nearby circuits to fail to operate correctly. Thus above the surrounding the noise, the noise created by these signals, you cannot hear the person at the other end of and internet call. This is when these chokes or beads come into play. Through electromagnetic coupling the chokes induce a circuit that has extremely sharp pulses can induce extra signals over and above the main signal in a nearby circuit. This becomes a source of noise, and makes it almost impossible for the receiving circuit to interpret the main signal.
  • A computer receives electric signals within the range of 300 MHz to 1000 MHz. This range is high enough to create electromagnetic signals and radio waves too. These waves are created from the number of different wires connected to the computer, which start acting like an antenna. After that they emit radio waves, which interfere with the working of close by other electronic devices such as Television, Radio and Kitchen Electronic Appliances. Even Mobile Phones on some cases. The disturbance is cause in the Television, Radios and Mobiles in the form of noise, which is sometimes unbearable. The chokes prevent the radio frequencies from leaving the medium of their travel.

These chokes act as the first line of defense against the radio and electromagnetic waves. And have become an essential part in our lives, but are hidden at the back.
