I find the sound from the USB External Sound Card, to be much clearer, richer and fuller with a high definition quality you only hear in the most advanced home theater systems. Today’s motherboards integrate audio on-board. On-board audio is susceptible to a lot of noise and interference from other circuitry. For the highest quality sound experience possible, a new sound card like the USB External Sound Card, is honestly the most important thing you can do to your system.

Improving Your Pet’s Environment with the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam HP500CKP Pet Monitoring Camera Kit

With 68% of U.S. households owning a pet, according to the National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA)1, it’s no wonder that our furry, and maybe not-so-furry companions are an important part of enriching our lives. One way of improving our pet’s environment is to simply monitor them with the use of the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam HP500CKP Pet Monitoring Camera Kit.

pic2

I really like the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam to watch what my pets are up to at any given time and at any given place. You’d be surprised at how much use you’ll get out of it. You can set it up anywhere to watch your litter of new puppies or kittens and make sure all is well. You can set it up where there’s a lot of foot traffic and watch if your dog is staying out of trouble. In the summer, you can make sure your dog or cat is not overheating outdoors. If you have large dogs and toddlers, it’s only common sense to have a monitoring system.

pic3

Live in an apartment and can’t keep a dog or cat? You can use the Diamond PetCam to watch your fish, reptiles or birds and monitor things like temperature and humidity by setting up the camera near their gauges.

pic_4

With the Plugnview App, the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam is very easy to use. Just download and install it on your mobile device, and you can see everything your pet is up to right on your smartphone or tablet. The PetCam also features IR Distance (night vision): up to 16 feet and can display your video feed at a resolution of up to 12fps at 640 x 480 pixels.

pic5

With the use of additional features from the PC software, the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam also sets recording schedules, triggers motion detection and sets email alerts through Windows PCs so you can monitor your pets with your laptop.

pic6

The Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam also comes with a separate adapter which plugs into any outlet which then plugs into your router. With this network connection, you can set up multiple cameras throughout your home. However, keep in mind when setting up your camera to ensure that neighboring public/private property or strangers are not being viewed or recorded. Only your property and private space should be monitored with the camera.

Enriching the quality of life for our animals can sometimes be a seemingly difficult task, but with the help of the Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam, improving their general health and well-being can be real easy. Plus it’s just a really fun and neat way of staying connected to your pets as well as having the peace of mind knowing they’re being monitored for their own safety. The Diamond Plug-n-View PetCam and other really cool multimedia devices are available at: www.diamondmm.com.

Bridging the Gap between Your Laptop or Tablet and 4K Resolution with the Diamond BVU5500 4K Multi-Display Adapter

Continuing with the series on multi-display adapters, there’s quite a bit you can do with a new 4K monitor that I bet you didn’t even realize. One of those is to use a multi-display adapter to capture all of your onscreen content from a laptop or Windows tablet. Diamond Multimedia’s new BVU5500 4K Multi-Display Adapter is capable of connecting and extending your small-screen to a 4K resolution large-screen.

Diamond’s BVU5500 brings to life a new way to visualize in crisp super-high 4K resolution, stunning detail all from DisplayLink’s 4K Plug and Display technology.

pic2

The BVU5500’s maximum resolution capabilities are staggering. Now you can enjoy a screen that contains 4 times the amount of pixels of a standard HD 1080P monitor. I know you’re probably wondering how much of difference that really makes, but once you see the difference, I am sure that this new technology is something that’ll be quite addicting.

pic3

Again, the maximum resolution capability is a staggering 3840 x 2160 pixels. The Diamond BVU5500 features a standard display port. Audio is passed through the DP port but also has an external 3.5mm stereo input jack for additional audio needs.

pic4

Using the BVU5500 adapter is a real breeze. Just connect it to your PC, laptop or Windows Tablet and use a standard 3.0/2.0 cable to connect it to another monitor.

pic5

I use more than one at my workstation and can’t imagine my life without them. With additional BVU5500 adapters, you can set up more than just one extra monitor. You can have up to six. Once you start getting into the groove of using multi-display adapters, you’ll really start engaging in multi-tasking and keeping your work desk professional-looking and super impressive.

pic6

So don’t get bogged down using just your lonely laptop or tablet. Get connected to 4K technology and bridge that gap to all the new 4K display potential that is out there. The Diamond BVU5500 4K Multi-Display Adapter is just one of the many smart devices available at: www.diamondmm.com.

Use the Diamond WPCTVPRO to Wirelessly Stream your Android Mobile Device to Your Large Screen HDTV or HD projector

On this second part of streaming to your large-screen TV, I really like the Diamond V-Stream WPCTVPRO which is a Wireless USB, PC to TV device that allows you to wirelessly stream HD video and internet content to your HDTV.

pic_2

With an OTG Cable, you can now enable any Android 5.0 device to stream internet content on a large-screen TV by installing an app. Here is the link to the app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.displaylink.desktop

Let’s look at how an OTG (On-the-Go) cable can make your life easier. Basically, an OTG cable is a small adapter that goes between your smartphone or tablet (in this case AndroidTM 5.0 devices) and a USB connection (in this case a Diamond WPCTVPRO transmitter that will allow wireless streaming from your device to a large-screen TV).

pic_3

For me, this has replaced the need for any other cables and wires which may get in the way when I’m walking around in my living room. I just have a small transmitter connected to my Android OS smartphone and the WPCTVPRO connected separately to my large screen TV.

pic4

The Diamond WPCTVPRO not only supports your PC/Mac based computer but also supports your Android based smartphone or tablets. Mirror and stream your mobile screen to your large screen TV or projector without any wired restrictions such as with MHL and HDMI cables.

Impress friends and family with a streaming slideshow of your vacation movies and selfies. Use it in your office conference room,  stream internet content from your smart mobile device or share Google Doc presentations and slideshows on the conference room projector.

pic5

So if you want to share what’s on your mobile device, or simply want to see it on a large screen, without all the wires and cables connected to your TV, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Diamond WPCTVPRO. The Diamond WPCTVPRO and other innovative multimedia products are available at: www.diamondmm.com.
