Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) at the CeBIT conference in Europe this week has been making its share of headlines – not only introducing its new lines of chips called Haswell, but it is also unveiling a new concept called Display as a Service (DaaS), which is meant as a play off Software as a Service (SaaS). This new concept seems to soften the hard-wired networks and makes collaboration better across a network.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) introduced this new concept by demonstrating with several different devices. The concept of DaaS is to break the unbreakable link between a video source and the display that is showing the video – like a desktop computer where a video is stored, and the display monitor that allows a user to view the video. With this technology, video coming from one device (liek a laptop) can be shown on a big-screen TV or a tablet, show the same image on many devices at the same time, or link multiple displays into a bigger one.
Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) also demonstrated a box that could link up displays that do not have IP addresses with those that do. As the video is sent over wired or wireless networks, an IP addresses is required to receive the pixels that are sent over the network.
In other CeBIT news, Intel Corporation (NASDAQ:INTC) showed off a prototype Windows 8 laptop that runs on the company’s new Haswell processor – a laptop that has a detachable display. The new Haswell processor, which is supposed to increase battery life, better graphics and faster processing, is due to be in the markets in the middle of 2013.
