The Extended road Home: Radios used in Transport Techniques along with Fleets

Posted

According to the UK Government, there were an estimated 5.2 billion bus passenger journeys undertaken on our roads in 2011/2012. Public and private transportation is not only big business; it is also of massive importance to the smooth running of the country.

Whilst only 14% of the UK's 25 million commuters travel to work by bus or train, this still accounts for over 1.7 million people. In order for a country this reliant on public transport to survive and thrive, it is absolutely imperative that transport workers can communicate with each other in a quick, efficient manner, fuelling an industry that, by necessity, spans the length and breadth of the nation.

Two-way radios provide the solutions to this monumental challenge.

Rail, bus, fleet and trucking management make use of two-way radios in order to keep up to speed with vital information. Drivers and managers can easily contact command and control centres, as well as liaising with depot staff and even customers, all due to using their radios. Together with integrated GPS systems, radios help transport and fleet workers to track deliveries in real time, as well as informing would-be passengers or commuters of any delays or early arrivals.



But it isn't just truckers making deliveries, commuters travelling to and from work and trains running on time. Public transport is one of the most important aspects of the tourism industry, itself a large part of Britain's economy. Visitors flock from almost every country on Earth in order to visit popular sites like Stonehenge, The The Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and the beautiful city of Bath. Without a reliable public transport system, our tourism industry would be seriously harmed.

So, in order to keep things running as smoothly as possible, all relevant personnel are equipped with a two-way radio so that they can keep in direct contact with their colleagues, peers and managers. This also allows for speedy customer service, as well as up-to-date and reliable information.

Health and safety is also a huge concern regarding public transport and, since the tragedy of the London bombings 8 years ago, security is also a large issue. Workers specializing in either area find their radios to be among the most vital of their tools.



Transport companies employ a veritable army of security staff, as well as first-aiders all of whom are connected via rugged and reliable two-way radios.

Without radios, the country's public transport system could very well come to a standstill. The roads and railways of Britain are, at least in some ways, kept in operation via a network ofhere.

Bose Knows Sound, The Bose TV Sound System

Posted

When I was young and inexperienced about the ways of the world, my Mum used to buy me those electric toothbrushes that you see on TV.

Those things don't actually have a very long shelf life, but they do work a treat (it was 27 years before I needed my first filling). Therefore, whenever an old one bit the dust, my Mum would somehow stump up the money and replace it. Good as gold.

One of the many disillusions I've endured since leaving home about six years ago, (first for Uni and then for the big, scary real world) is that you have to pay for your own stuff. Like, all the time. For example, the other day our washing machine broke and it cost the best part of 40 to repair it (amazingly, all that palaver was just because the button had come off of my girlfriend's trousers and gotten caught somewhere in the mechanism). The week after that, our food bill spiralled upwards to almost twice its previous amount with no warning from our local recession-maligned supermarket. As a matter of necessity, my much-loved electric toothbrush was forced out of my life.

So, last week, with a little more money in my pocket than usual, I 'treated' myself to a new toothbrush and, wouldn't you know it? The damn thing died on me this morning. For **** sake!

What does this have to do with the Bose TV sound system? Not a lot, but I was pissed about it and I wanted to vent.

Actually, the two products do have quite a lot in common (in a good way). Like my preferred brand of toothbrush, the Bose TV speaker doesn't come cheap, however, it is also arguably the best product of its kind and, like the toothbrush; no home should be without one.

Your average flat panel TV screen doesn't have wonderful speakers to match its exceptional picture; you've probably noticed. The size and shape of those speakers are all wrong for anything but the most basic aural experience. Today's average flatscreen TV viewer hooks an external sound system up to the TV as a matter of course.

What I'm saying, then: is if you're going to buy speakers; buy Bose.

With a flawless, easy set up and a smart, compact design, Bose's new TV sound system provides you with a broader, more detailed sound. You can hear every bone crunching in your favourite high-octane action fest, or experience fully the subtle nuances of heartbreak in your favourite rom coms (probably).

Using proprietary digital signal processing (look it up - I have a word limit and I wasted almost half of it talking about a toothbrush), these speakers adjust and optimise the sound at almost any volume level. In practical terms, this basically means that you won't have to turn the sound right up to hear the dramatic whispery bits, only to be deafened, in turn, by the sonic assault of the massive explosion-y bits.

This speaker array will bring audio quality into your home that is damn close to cinema level and perfectly compliments a Blu Ray/Plasma screen setup, in fact, I'll go one better: it completes it.

On the downside, this system is not the cheapest. However, sometimes it's worth shelling out a little (OK, a lot) extra in order to get the nicest product on the rack. When I consider how much time the average family spends watching TV, it makes sense that they'd want to invest in a superior product. Anyway, the point is this; whether its oral or aural technology you're after, it pays to buy the best.

Bringing the Cinema to the family with HD projectors

Posted

Ever see any of MTV Cribs? We did. And we are always most jealous of those quasi-celebrity homes that came built with the small motion picture theatre. Well, now that technology has come down in price notably enough to give us plain mortals a go, and boy, are we excited about that!

Big screen experience is just a click away, so let's be your guides. Buying an high definition projector has never been faster, easier, less costly or more worth it.

Using your high definition projector you can make any evening a movie night, showing your favourite Blu Ray or DVD films for assembled friends and family (as well as the few less-than-accepted hangers-on who constantly turn up) and astound everyone. An hd projector brings out the best in any movie, regardless of its era and budget.

To really catch the http://www.youtube.com/user/MT V essence of the cinema at home, you may need an high definition projector and a Enormous display, then you definately can blend old classics with modern blockbusters to your heart's content. By hooking your high definition projector up to the state of the art speaker system, your bone-shattering celluloid adventures will be done.

Watch movies the best way they were preordained to be watched, with your high definition projector. Take the cinema home with you (minus the sticky flooring, over-priced food and drink and obnoxious youngsters) and bask in the luxuriousness that only your high definition projector can give. Who needs a way of life like the loaded and (apparently) shameless when you've got a cinema in the home?
