Consumer Electronics Control
CONSUMER ELECTRONICS CONTROL (CEC) is a feature of HDMI
HDMI
designed to allow users to command and control devices connected through HDMI
HDMI
by using only one remote control . For example, by using the remote control of a television set to control a set-top box and or DVD player . Up to 15 devices can be controlled. CEC also allows for individual CEC-enabled devices to command and control each other without user intervention. :§CEC-3.1 It is a one-wire bidirectional serial bus that is based on the CENELEC standard AV.link protocol to perform remote control functions. CEC wiring is mandatory, although implementation of CEC in a product is optional. (§8.1) It was defined in HDMI

Electronic Program Guide
ELECTRONIC PROGRAM GUIDES (EPGS) and INTERACTIVE PROGRAM GUIDES (IPGS) are menu-based systems that provide users of television, radio and other media applications with continuously updated menus displaying broadcast programming or scheduling information for current and upcoming programming. Some guides also feature backward scrolling to promote their catch up content. They are commonly known as GUIDES or TV GUIDES. Non-interactive electronic program guides (sometimes known as "navigation software") are typically available for television and radio, and consist of a digitally displayed, non-interactive menu of program scheduling information shown by a cable or satellite television provider to its viewers on a dedicated channel. EPGs are transmitted by specialized video character generation (CG) equipment housed within each such provider's central headend facility

On-screen Display
An ON-SCREEN DISPLAY (abbreviated OSD) is an image superimposed on a screen picture, commonly used by modern television sets , VCRs , and DVD players to display information such as volume, channel, and time. CONTENTS * 1 History * 2 Computers * 3 Known problems * 4 See also HISTORYIn the past, most adjustments on TV sets were performed with analog controls such as potentiometers and switches. This was used more recently also in monochrome portable TVs. After remote controls were invented, digital adjustments became common. They needed an external display, which was LED

, or VFD based. Including this display increased manufacturing costs. When electronics became more advanced, it became clear that adding some extra devices for an OSD was cheaper than adding a second display device. TV screens had become much bigger and could display much more information than a small second display

Sleep Mode
SLEEP MODE is a low power mode for electronic devices such as computers, televisions, and remote controlled devices. These modes save significantly on electrical consumption compared to leaving a device fully on and, upon resume, allow the user to avoid having to reissue instructions or to wait for a machine to reboot . Many devices signify this power mode with a pulsed or red colored LED

Open-collector
An OPEN COLLECTOR is a common type of output found on many integrated circuits (IC) , which behaves like a switch that is either connected to ground or disconnected. Instead of outputting a signal of a specific voltage or current, the output signal is applied to the base of an internal NPN transistor whose collector is externalized (open) on a pin of the IC. The emitter of the transistor is connected internally to the ground pin. If the output device is a MOSFET the output is called OPEN DRAIN and it functions in a similar way. CONTENTS * 1 Function * 2 Applications of open-collector devices * 3 MOSFET * 4 POD * 5 See also * 6 References * 7 External links FUNCTIONIn the picture, the transistor base is labeled "IC output". This is a signal from the internal IC logic to the transistor. This signal controls the transistor switching

ITT Corporation
ITT INC., formerly ITT CORPORATION, is an American worldwide manufacturing company based in White Plains , New York . The company produces specialty components for the aerospace, transportation, energy and industrial markets. The company was founded in 1920 as INTERNATIONAL TELEPHONE & TELEGRAPH. During the 1960s and 1970s, under the leadership of CEO Harold Geneen , the company rose to prominence as the archetypal conglomerate , deriving its growth from hundreds of acquisitions in diversified industries. ITT divested its telecommunications assets in 1986, and in 1995 spun off its non-manufacturing divisions, later purchased by Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide . In 1996, the current company was founded as a spinoff of ITT as ITT INDUSTRIES, INC. It later changed its name to ITT CORPORATION in 2006

Pull-up Resistor
In electronic logic circuits , a PULL-UP RESISTOR is a resistor used to ensure a known state for a signal. It is typically used in combination with components such as switches and transistors , which physically interrupt the connection of subsequent components to ground . The pull-up resistor then ensures a well-defined voltage (i.e. VCC ) across the latter during interruption. An open switch is not equivalent to a component with infinite impedance, since in the former case, the stationary voltage in any loop in which it is involved can no longer be determined by Kirchhoff\'s laws . Consequently, the voltages across those critical components (such as the logic gate in the example on the right) which are only in loops involving the open switch are undefined, too. A pull-up resistor effectively establishes an additional loop over the critical components, ensuring that the voltage is well-defined even when the switch is open

Consumer IR
CONSUMER IR, CONSUMER INFRARED, or CIR, refers to a wide variety of devices employing the infrared electromagnetic spectrum for wireless communications . Most commonly found in television remote controls , infrared ports are equally ubiquitous in consumer electronics , such as PDAs , laptops , and computers . The functionality of CIR is as broad as the consumer electronics that carry it. For instance, a television remote control can convey a "channel up" command to the television, while a computer might be able to surf the internet solely via CIR. The type, speed, bandwidth , and power of the transmitted information depends on the particular CIR protocol employed. CIR is the most common type of free-space optical communication
