Global electronification continues to gain momentum as more and more products become electrified and/or “smart”. Touch screens, advanced electronics, accessible voice controls, and wireless connectivity are being integrated into everything from watches to refrigerators to entire homes or offices as the Internet of Things (IoT) enters its next phase.
As this trend grows, the world is seeing devices, displays, and interactivity that was previously impossible. Home theatres contain huge OLED displays offering 8k resolution, sound systems generate louder and clearer acoustics, and entertainment consoles bring us the latest in interactive games, virtual reality, and streaming content. Homes and offices utilize a vast array of technologies including personal computers, high resolution monitors, thin clients, notebooks, and tablets, many of which double as part of our home entertainment systems or as virtual offices and conference rooms. These smart homes and offices include interconnected appliances, security systems, and communication systems, making up the complete Smart Home Environment.
