Hitachi Unveils Digital Signatures on Stand-Alone Memory Chips

50°
325w ago - Hitachi has announced anti-counterfeiting functionalities on memory chips without microprocessor such as memory cards, tickets or cartridges.

The Japanese company announced today the development of a mechanism for attesting the authenticity of memory chips using highly secure digital signatures.

Since the mechanism requires neither a CPU nor a computational unit, high security can be attained at a very low cost. As a result, counterfeited or altered memory devices can be recognized as such, with a wide range of applications, including memory cards for digital cameras or handheld video game consoles, cartridges for consumer products, admission tickets or gift coupons.

In order to establish that digital contents are authentic and have not been tampered with, digital signatures usually involve cost-intensive computations and require an important processing power. For instance, in some schemes, large integers with hundreds of digits are multiplied hundreds of times using a powerful CPU.

As a consequence, conventional memory chips without CPU cannot handle digital signatures and are confined to the use of basic identification techniques based for example on serial numbers. Moreover, adding a CPU with sufficient processing power...
 

Sony Unveils 400-Disc Blu-ray Changer at CEDIA

50°
328w ago - Sony has put on show its second generation Blu-ray disc changer, which is capable of holding up to 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs or DVDs.

To quote:

The beastly device can gobble up 400 Blu-ray discs, CDs, or DVDs. The first generation of the device that debuted at CEDIA in 2007 was massive–about the size of a refrigerator.

The new Blu-ray Disc Mega Changer prototype has a form factor much more like one of the home theater components we are used to seeing in our entertainment systems--albeit a very bloated one.

You could think of this as the John Candy of Blu-ray changers.
 

Nintendo unveils Wi-Fi Network Adapter for Japan

50°
328w ago - Nintendo has unveiled a wireless router/bridge for sale (in Japan) that works to connect your Wii, DS and/or PC to the Internet.

Famitsu (linked above) has more picss of it, including a router/bridge switch. The router costs you 5,800 (US $53). No word on a release outside of Japan, although the Wi-Fi USB Connector has reportedly been discontinued, so it'd make sense to have this as a replacement.

The Wi-Fi Network Adaptor will be available via Nintendo Japan's Web site on September 18.

This appears to be good news for less tech-savvy folks, for which a majority of Nintendo's userbase generally consists of... although almost every standard router available works with both systems already.
 

Electrograph Unveils 3-D Gaming System

50°
329w ago - Electrograph has recently announced the first ever stand-alone 3D gaming system, with the company stating they will show off the system at the Philips 3D 42 inch LCD display at this week's CEDIA show.

In addition, the system can play many of today's PC games using its proprietary software drivers.

To quote: It's time to chuck those goofy 3-D glasses. Electrograph just announced the first stand-alone 3-D gaming system. The company says they will show off the system with the Philips 3D WOWvx 42-inch LCD display, at this week's CEDIA show.

Using the 1920x1080 LCD display and Electrograph's unnamed, proprietary software drivers, the system can play many of today's PC games. Ready to accommodate multiple players, the system can show off a wide range of viewing angles with "out-of-screen" effects.

"There is nothing more addicting to kids, teens and even adults than modern video games," says Jeff Jerome, Electrograph's director of product management. "In fact, many underutilized home theaters are now serving as supersized game rooms. So imagine the appeal of true 3-D gaming–without the glasses–that the whole family can play."

Amen brother!
