  • CES 2009 - Small Computers

    It is amazing how small, cheap and low power computers are getting. The show floor was littered with them so we took a sample of one in this clip below. Running a quicktime MOV on the faster unit in this movie took up 60% of the CPU so some testing is probably in order. Over the last 12 years of working on computers I have seen tons of motherboards. Even some that are very expensive from big name companies can be riddled with driver problems or other small quirks.

      How powerful are these computers? Say I wanted to pull in a couple video signals from cameras as well as some telemetry data running on LabView, would it be able to keep up?

        it depends on how heavy your applications are and if you can use the native video decoding/encoding hardware. that is a very complicated answer. You should buy one and test it.
