Broadcast Digital HDTV Indoor Antenna Solution

Over-the-air (OTA) broadcast high definition television deployment is growing across the globe, as more nations retire the analog TV transmission infrastructure and convert over to digital. Here in the U.S. market, the video image quality of digital broadcast TV has to be seen to be believed – it’s a vast improvement over the old system.

That being said, I’ve discovered that most indoor TV antennas don’t perform well. I live on high ground not too far from the communication towers where the broadcast TV signals are transmitted. So, theoretically, we should achieve outstanding broadcast digital TV reception.

Quest for a Superior Broadcast TV Antenna

Unfortunately, that has not been the case, until now. My prior attempts at finding a suitable indoor antenna for digital TV broadcasts proved to be very problematic. Some indoor antennas are very particular about placement – the proximity of the antenna relative to the TV set, and the other surroundings.

Many require tuning – carefully adjusting the placement of the antenna so that reception across all broadcast channels is somewhat consistent. I’ve used three different antenna types, thus far. Only the Leaf Indoor Antenna, from Mohu Inc., has delivered acceptable performance in our home. To date -- based upon our usage needs -- the Leaf was able to effectively deliver all the local channels, all of the time (with no tuning required).

As you’ll see, the manufacturer claims that “The Leaf is unlike any other television antenna on the market and provides unparalleled performance, installation options and value.” Frankly, when I received the device I was immediately struck by the relative simplicity of the design – it’s flat, very unobtrusive and easy to install.

I’ve used it successfully with our nineteen inch digital HDTV set that we use in the kitchen area, underneath a row of cabinets. The other TVs in our home are connected to the local cable TV network. Because we don’t use their digital cable service – just the basic analog service – I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the OTA channels produce high quality video images.

Offering Excellent Value for a Low Price

Mohu offers a 30-day money back guarantee and the antenna has a standard one-year warranty. I’ve waited a couple of months before I decided to write my review of this product. Given my prior experience with other indoor antennas, I wanted to be sure that the excellent results were truly sustainable.

If you’ve been searching for a digital broadcast TV antenna that doesn’t require power for signal amplification, can be easily hidden from view and works well across the full spectrum of broadcast TV channels, then the Leaf is a good choice.

IoT Device Management Demand Gains Momentum

More forward-thinking CIOs and CTOs are focused on the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT). Management challenges are top of mind for those who have already deployed a large number of sensors and associated network edge devices. Device management services are evolving in response to a greater breadth of new device technologies such as edge intelligence and related connectivity solutions, as well as the customer scalability and security of IoT deployments. But forward-looking suppliers are also preparing for a world where 41.3 percent of the connected devices will be using some form of Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) technologies by 2026. IoT Device Management Market Development Since IoT customers increasingly need to manage a larger fleet of connected devices, ABI Research now forecasts that IoT device management services will exceed $36.8 billion in revenues by 2026. Standardization is beginning to play a bigger role in device management services, as more connected devices use LPWA t

Anywhere, Anytime Workplace Demand for SASE

The ongoing adoption of flexible working models within the enterprise market has significant implications for typical IT organizations that must now support knowledge workers and front-line employees that operate outside the corporate network perimeter. The global COVID-19 pandemic created IT networking and security challenges. The expansion of the distributed workforce, an increasing reliance on cloud computing infrastructure, and the requirement to securely connect online employees -- wherever they choose to work, at any given moment in time. Legacy IT solutions that have rigid network underlays and a requirement for on-premises infrastructure cannot adequately deal with these trends. This 'Anywhere, Anytime Workplace' led to demand for new Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) solutions, with networking and security delivered as-a-service. Anywhere, Anytime Workplace Market Development   Although converging networking and security capabilities offer enterprises a promising solut

Cloud Edge Computing Demand Continues to Grow

Public cloud computing solutions are moving closer to the edge of networks where CIOs and CTOs are hosting new apps. The edge journey is well underway for forward-looking organizations as they seek to connect with customers, improve operational efficiency, and adopt digital business technologies to drive innovation. The latest worldwide market study by International Data Corporation (IDC) found that three-quarters of organizations plan to increase their edge computing spending over the next two years with an average increase of 37 percent. A combination of factors is driving this increased spending at the edge. Cloud Edge Computing Market Development The performance requirements of expanding workloads and new use cases that leverage artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) demand greater compute capacity at the edge. In addition, the amount of data being stored in edge locations are rapidly expanding, and organizations plan to keep this data longer. As a result, the numbe
