DIGITAL HARMONY NON-1394 TECHNOLOGIES

Digital Harmony's intellectual property portfolio contains four complementary non-1394 technologies that are valuable to manufacturers and home network installers: BiDAT, WireFree, PAWS, and REALM.

BiDAT Transceivers

Digital Harmony's BiDAT (U.S. and foreign patents pending) transceivers allow data and audio to share existing speaker wires or line-level interconnect cables. This allows simple devices (such as a speaker) to communicate with an intelligent device (such as a decoder/amplifier) without incurring the expense of a sophisticated communications interface. BiDAT is a very inexpensive alternative to IEEE 1394, giving speakers the same bidirectional communications capabilities as any other Digital Harmony audio device. For example, a BiDAT speaker with an IR window could be placed in a bedroom, allowing the consumer to use an IR remote control to manipulate a stereo system in the living room.
