Webcams are an essential gadget now that we’re staying in and working from home so often, and virtual communication is more important than it’s ever been before in our society. If you want to maintain any sense of normalcy, you’ll need a good webcam to stay connected with your friends and loved ones through a video call, and to communicate with your coworkers through virtual meetings so that you can still function as a team. This past year has also seen a boom in live content streaming, like on Twitch and YouTube, and you’ll need a webcam that can stream high quality video if you’re looking to join in on the fun.
When you’re setting up a sound system, one of the most obvious things you come to realize is that even just setting up a simple PA system requires a number of different parts. From cables, speakers, mixers, amplifiers, microphones, more cables, the list goes on the more complex you try to go. For this reason, wouldn’t eliminating a device and some cables go a long way in terms of efficiency and cost effectiveness?
If you’re in the market to upgrade your TV to something to meet today’s ultra high definition standards, you’ve probably also noticed that most makes and models now have the word "smart" in front of them. What this means is that the TV has wireless capabilities to connect to the Internet and will have a user-friendly interface where you can download all your favourite streaming channels and watch without having to worry about plugging your computer into an HDMI port or buying an extra gadget that allows you to wirelessly cast to your TV.
Video games have come an awfully long way in the last 25 years: from rough geometric worlds and characters to impossibly lifelike graphics and the smoothest mechanics, it's almost as if you're being transported to another world. The only thing that can stand in the way of getting the best visual experience with your games is your TV.
Whether you’re a long-time Xbox gamer or you're just eager to join in on the fun, there are still great XboxOne games that you can play. Odds are that you’re eagerly awaiting the next restock of the Xbox Series X/S. But until that happens, why not take the time to play through some of the best XBoxOne titles you might have missed?
When you start designing your home audio system, there are many ways to go about it; with so many different styles of speakers and endless ways to configure them in your space. Of course, it’s worth noting that the more speakers you have, the better — 5.1 is the standard, basic surround sound, after all — but that isn’t always practical for all spaces, or more importantly, all budgets.
This far into the 21st century, we are very accustomed to consolidating our technology into one convenient (typically small) device. There are a few cases, however, where having everything you need in one place isn’t better in the long run.
If you’re relatively new to home sound systems, you might not be aware that your new speakers won’t always come with the cables you need. This is because when it comes to sound, every component is crucial.
Using the internet, an Android TV box can connect to your Wi-Fi network, allowing you to download apps that broadcasts content on your TV. They're a great alternative to cable and they allow you to watch popular apps including Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube on your flat-screen or 4K TV. You can also download other apps — Google how — on Android boxes to unlock video and music apps that will give you access to your favourite shows and movies.
We’re well into the age of 4K Ultra High Definition (or UHD) so if you’re still stuck in HD 1080p, maybe it’s time to consider an upgrade. 4K UHD has four times the pixels as HD, meaning your picture is four times clearer, your colours are four times richer, and your enjoyment of your TV, movies, sports, and more will be four times greater than ever before.
