05.03.2009: Total flexibility: the office in your jacket pocket Put your office in your jacket pocket - this is the invitation issued by T-Systems at CeBIT 2009 to everyone that wants to have their own personal desktop with them

Total flexibility: the office in your jacket pocket

Put your office in your jacket pocket - this is the invitation issued by T-Systems at CeBIT 2009 to everyone that wants to have their own personal desktop with them at all times and everywhere they go. The USB stick "My Access Key" makes it possible.

The miniaturized office supports mobile working in two ways: it can either act as the platform for the most important programs, effectively working autonomously like a sort of PC, or it enables secure access to a personal desktop and all programs maintained in a computer center. This access is provided by a secure Internet connection and can be made from anywhere as long as the terminal used is connected to the Internet. Particular high security is provided by a combination of a card, a PIN and the personal voice of the user. If the user provides authentication via the My Access Key with a card and password for the system in the computer center, the solution then calls the user back by telephone and provides access to applications and data once it has recognized the user's voice pattern.

A well rounded burner

Regardless of whether you want to burn a DVD with a speed of 24x, apply a label to the DVD or securely erase data from it, users can soon turn to a single appliance: the iHAS624 burner, which will be presented by PLDS at CeBIT 2009.

One interesting feature of the new DVD burner is the LabelTag, which allows circular printing on the data side of a DVD±R disc. During the burning process the user can burn a short text or a small image at the same time as the data, without having to interrupt the burning process, rotate the disc or use special software. The burning speed is not reduced at all in the process. Special media are not required as printing with LabelTag is possible with standard DVD±R discs.

The burner is also equipped with the SmartErase feature. This enables complete deletion of data that has been stored on DVD±R and CD-R media. The iHAS624 has an S-ATA port, which provides high levels of performance and compatibility. It should be noted, however, that the maximum 24x burning speed available for DVD±Rs can only be achieved with certified discs.

Rotatable touchscreen

You are sitting in a conference and want to show someone a new idea on your netbook. No problem - the Eee PC T 91 is the first Netvertible from Asus and has a rotatable and hinged touchscreen display, with an 8.9 inch screen that can be rotated by 180 degrees. You can see how it works at CeBIT 2009.

The elegant Convertible Netbook in black and white also has some features hidden from view: for example, a GPS module helps with navigation and a radio transmitter also allows the user to listen to the football results while traveling. Weighing less than 1kg, the user will barely notice it in his or her baggage.

Satellite TV with HD quality straight from the socket

Until now, receiving digital TV via a satellite dish required the laborious laying of coaxial cables through the house or apartment. The presentation of dLAN TV Sat Welt at CeBIT 2009 signals an end to this cable spaghetti as the new satellite receiver routes TV images via the domestic electricity wires from the satellite dish to the TV. As a result, the receiver only needs to be connected to the satellite system and the nearest power socket. An adapter in the socket on the television then brings the data to the screen.

The dLAN TV Sat Receiver supplies digital satellite television in HD quality. An HDMI port provides optimal signal transmission and analogue televisions can be connected via SCART. A CI module allows smart cards to be inserted in order to be able to receive encrypted channels. Optimal surround sound is provided by the digital port alongside the analogue audio outputs. The integrated, EPG controlled recording function saves videos directly to an external USB or eSATA hard disk. If two receivers are being used on a Twin-LNB then the dLAN TV Sat Receiver can record one program in parallel to showing another TV channel.

On stage with air guitars in the gaming oasis

Stand alongside the top rock stars on the Intel stage: The Guitar Hero World Tour makes it possible. Both online und offline. When air guitars come to life the atmosphere will be electric in the gaming oasis in Hall 22. CeBIT 2009 will see the premiere of the latest version of the extremely successful music rhythm video-game series.

Every visitor can grab their own air guitar. In an innovative music studio the video-game players can record and edit their songs and sounds. And a real electronic drum kit gives the musical feeling an even more professional touch.

NEPOMUK enables computers to think like humans

In the NEPOMUK project, scientists from the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) have given computers a human-like capacity to remember, as they will now demonstrate at CeBIT 2009.

Some background to the new development: imagine that you hear an interesting lecture by Mr. Müller from the company XY, in which he talks about the opportunities offered by artificial intelligence. The next time you meet Mr. Müller you can probably still remember his talk well even if you have perhaps forgotten his name. This partial memory is possible as humans think associatively and intuitively handle relationships between information. The human brain connects individual elements that it perceives at the same time and is thus in a position to associate conference proceedings with speakers or dates, for example.

In the NEPOMUK project, a procedure has now been developed that uses semantic technology to support personal information management. The knowledge concealed in the folder structure and file contents of the personal computer is first transferred automatically to a "personal information model". For example, e-mails are linked with contact data and images on the hard disk. Users can adapt this model at any time to suit their personal preferences and ways of thinking. The resulting associations created between information and concepts are used for storage and search operations: for storage, content analysis algorithms make proposals regarding how new documents are to be added to the existing personal folder system; if documents are searched for later on but the image of the contact person is all that is remembered then the semantic network that has been developed can help find the correct documents again.

Master off switch: no chance for secret power gluttons

Who doesn't recognize the scenario: as soon as the front door has closed behind you, the doubts begin to creep in….did I turn the iron off? Is the television still on perhaps? This stress can be put to an end once and for all. At CeBIT 2009, presents a new technology that provides greater security and lower energy consumption.

A small chip, not even the size of a finger nail, makes it all possible. The chip connects all the electrical devices via the existing electricity network and enables them to be controlled with traditional switches. When leaving the house a "master off switch", which can be placed on any number of power sockets, allows the whole house to be placed in standby mode. In theory, each individual electrical device can be equipped with a digitalSTROM-Chip. The system also measures energy consumption right down to individual appliance level. A simple traffic light system or analysis on a computer shows if energy consumption is above average. This means that a faulty refrigerator seal can be detected as rapidly as a dripping tap.

Eternal light - LED lamp with a lifespan of 20,000 hours

Long life and extremely high energy efficiency: both these benefits are combined in the K10 projector, which Acer is displaying at CeBIT 2009. The 13 x 12 cm mini projector provides a brightness of 100 ANSI lumens which gives clear and detailed images with a diagonal of up to 152 cm, making it ideal for smaller rooms such as a manger's office.

The Acer K10 Pico projector, with its LED technology, is a real green IT product. There is practically no need to ever replace the lamp as the LEDs have an effective life of up to 20,000 hours. Furthermore, projectors with LED technology require up to 30% less energy than devices with conventional lamps because they generate less heat. The reduced need for cooling also enables a reduction in the overall size of the device. For environmentally conscious users there is another reason to be pleased: the production of LEDs requires no harmful substances, such as mercury or halides, in contrast to the production process for conventional lamps.

Light as a feather and packed full of technology - the new hard disk

The memory experts Transcend will be presenting an external 1.8 inch SSD hard disk at CeBIT 2009. The SSD18M mobile memory device is equipped with an eSATA and a USB-2.0 interface. The module has dimensions of only 80x50x12.5 millimeters and weighs only 50 grams. When reading it can attain speeds of 90 MB per second, and 50 MB per second when writing.

The SSD memory is connected to a PC by USB. In contrast to traditional hard disks, it has no moving parts, operates more quickly, uses less energy and is not sensitive to shocks. The reason - with SSDs the data is stored on memory chips rather than on magnetic discs.

Let the games begin - with powerful gaming laptops

18.4 inch screen, LED back lighting, and a 16:9 format - such sturdy facilities mean that gaming on laptops can now be really fun. At CeBIT 2009 mySN Schenker-Notebook will be demonstrating the powerful "mySN MB8" gaming laptop.

With integrated Nvidia Hybrid-SLI technology - a combination of energy-saving onboard graphics and a powerful  "GeForce 9600M GS" graphics card with a 512 MB video memory - the computer offers an above average battery time. The reason: the GeForce graphics card is only turned on when intensive applications require it. This gaming thoroughbred is also equipped with the latest "Core 2 Duo" processors from Intel.
