Why Keyssa Built a Better Connector: Part 4 – Security

Steve Venuti

There is nothing inherently secure about metal or mechanical connectors. In fact, they are notoriously unsecure: highly visible on the face of a compute product, more than likely standardized in their size and configuration, ripe for probing and extracting data.

The Case for Wireless Connectors in LED Video Walls

By Wade Wei, general manager of product at NovaStar and Steve Venuti, VP Marketing at Keyssa

Very few products have as many connections as an LED video wall. Cabinets connected to cabinets running Ethernet through RJ45 connectors. LED display modules connected to cabinets or backplanes with B2B connectors running parallel RGB and a number of control signals. And with each of these hundreds of connectors comes the very real possibility that one will fail.

The iPhone 12 MagSafe: Foreshadowing a Connector-less Smartphone World?

By Roger Isaac,
CTO, Keyssa

Whatever you think about Apple products (I happen to use Android), you have to give them credit for taking major steps that fundamentally change the way people use smartphones. I guess that should not be surprising. After all, Apple invented the category. Although Apple iPhones may not have all the bells and whistles of some of the other phones on the market, there are times when their newly announced phones foreshadow a trend that everyone in the industry acknowledges, but no one else dare take that step in the own products.

Such is the case with the iPhone 12 and its MagSafe wireless charger.

ISE (Integrated Systems Europe): Why February is Keyssa’s Favorite Month

It’s cold, it’s gray, it’s wet…but it’s also where 80,000 AV and professional systems integrators gather at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) to get a glimpse of the future of the global AV industry. And for Keyssa, it’s validation that we have hit the center of the “pain point” bullseye by addressing one of the most fundamental challenges of the exploding LED video wall market. The mechanical connector.

Device-to-device Connections in a 5G World Need a 5G Connector: Why I Decided to Join Keyssa

By Rubén Caballero
Chief Wireless Strategist, Keyssa
Formerly VP Engineering at Apple, Inc

5G is the fifth generation of mobile internet connectivity and the feature set is promising: faster data download and upload speeds, wider coverage, more stable connections and lower latency for mission critical operations (think autonomous vehicles, robotics, etc.). Of course, faster speeds are always desirable, but lower latency may be of higher importance for mission critical applications. The processing time required for both sender and receiver using traditional wireless technologies cannot meet the latency requirements of mission critical use cases. It’s all about making better use of the radio spectrum and enabling far more devices to access the mobile internet at the same time.

By Steve Venuti
VP Marketing, Keyssa

This week saw ominous words for Switch gamers coming out of Nintendo:

‘We are aware of recent reports that some Joy-Con controllers are not responding correctly’

As focused as Nintendo is with an unparalleled user experience, everything can fall apart at that potential single point of failure….the mechanical connector.
