Launch of Google Nest Hub at Google’s office in Singapore.

The Google Nest Hub is essentially the Google Home speaker – with a screen

So in addition to interacting with it purely through voice, you can now view information on the screen and interact with whatever is on the display with the usual touch-screen actions.

And the screen enables the Google Nest Hub to function as a photo frame showing photos from your Google Photos account, and serve as a table-top clock displaying the time, and setting off alarms to wake you up in the morning.

But most significant is the ability for the Google Nest Hub to function as the hub (yes, there’s a reason why it’s called by that name) of your smart home – displaying the status of the compatible smart devices within your home, and enabling you to interact and control those devices through voice or touch.

Event: Devialet SAM Lab Tour in Singapore

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

Attended a demo of Devialet’s SAM Lab. SAM (Speaker Active Matching) is an audio #technology which ensures extreme fidelity.

Devialet’s trainer from Paris flew into Singapore to showcase the difference between a speaker that has SAM technology vs one that does not. Listening to the demo, I found the enhancement most pronounced in the lower frequency ranges.

By taking into account the characteristics of the loudspeaker connected to the Devialet, it enables the Devialet to drive in a very precise and controlled way the speaker driver diaphragm’s movement, so as to obtain an exact alignment between a recorded music signal, and the pressure wave that reaches the listener’s ear during a listening session.
