Your Headset is Your Best Friend When it Comes to Gaming
If I were to tell you that the single most annoying aspect of gaming is bad quality audio, you’d probably agree. That’s because there’s nothing worse than not being able to hear clearly what’s going on. Plus the fact that so many headsets out there are horribly uncomfortable.

The Diamond Xtreme-Sound Gaming Headset sets a new level of comfort. A pair of high-quality leather ear-cups surround a pair of 40mm drivers that comfortably fits over your ears. Not only that, but the headset includes an extra set of cloth ear-cups as a replacement. The flexible headband offers stability and is also made of leather. I find the headset easy to use, very comfortable and can have them on for hours.

Easy-to-Access Controls
The Diamond Xtreme-Sound Gaming Headset features easy-to-access controls for volume, Mic mute and a LED light that has an On and Off switch. The switches and volume dial are all very robust and seem like they would hold up to years of abuse.

Built-In Microphone
The Diamond Xtreme-Sound Gaming Headset features a built-in, fixed Mic for crystal-clear sound and communication. You’ll be able to hear all of your opponents’ moves in crystal-clear, ultra-realistic sound. Experience the ultimate in game immersion as you dominate the competition in total comfort and style.

Boost Your Business Productivity with the Diamond BVU Multi-Display Adapters

When it comes to setting up your company’s workstations for your employees, there are a few options. One of these would be to create a working atmosphere where ideas are inspired, where talent grows and where productivity increases. In this article, we’ll look at how to boost your business productivity with the Diamond BVU Multi-Display Adapters. These adapters make it easy for your employees to have access to much more work-related content than ever before. With added monitors, the company productivity level will soar and standards for best work practices will be set.

So What is a Multi-Display Adapter?
A multi-display adapter connects another monitor to your PC, laptop or even tablet. With the Diamond BVU adapters, you can enhance your laptop’s visual experience by adding 2, 3 or up to 6* displays, in minutes. Add multiple displays to your PC/laptop/tablet without the hassle of opening your desktop case and adding costly discrete graphic cards.

BVU adapter

What are the Benefits of a Multi-Display Adapter?
In a business environment, a multi-display setup enhances productivity and inspires new ideas in many ways.

BVU165

More monitors equals more screen real-estate. This means that while a worker’s focus may be on one task at a time, one can’t help but to multi-task when they’ve got 2 or more screens side-by-side. Having multiple applications open simultaneously can have a real impact on processing information more quickly and accurately. Have spreadsheets across one monitor, have research sites open on another and news and stock market data on yet another.

The more multi-display workstations you set up, the less time your employees will spend on closing and opening files and windows which often times leads to distractions and losing one’s train of thought. With everything becoming more streamlined and less cluttered on their PC screens, the morale and productivity of your company will only increase.

BVU adapters for multi-display

*Each Display requires an additional BVU adapter, maximum 6 per system. All of the Diamond BVU Adapters are completely USB powered, so no additional power requirements are necessary and they consume 80% less PC power than internal discrete graphic cards.

Optimize Your Tablet Gaming on a Diamond TAB360 Universal Tablet Stand

If you’ve ever tried playing a racing game on your tablet, you know that holding onto the sides of your device doesn’t exactly give you that feel of being behind the wheel. This week we’ll look at one way you can optimize your tablet gaming on a Diamond TAB360 Universal Tablet Stand.

The Diamond TAB360 is a universal stand for iPads and tablets with a gyro 360° degree gaming wheel design. The stand itself can accommodate varying sizes of tablets in the 7″  to 10.1″ inch range. These include Apple iPads, iPad Minis, Samsung Galaxy Tabs, Dell Venue 8 as well as Amazon Kindle Fires. The TAB360 is a tablet stand with gaming on its mind.

pic2

Great for Racing and Flying Games
The steering wheel design is really cool and it feels great in your hands. The grip feels nice and really captures the experience of driving or flying. It’s a whole lot more enjoyable than simply rotating my tablet around that’s for sure. Also, if you’re familiar with playing games on a tablet, you’ll know how frustrating it can be when you accidentally hit the back button or home button. The TAB360 gives you more stability when steering because the tablet stays suspended and locks into place on the stand. It’s light but highly durable and has a solid build quality.

pic3

Not Just for Gaming
And of course, it’s not just for gaming. The Diamond TAB360 can be used as a regular stand as well. I like to watch videos and TV shows on my tablet, so I just snap it into the TAB360 and sit back and relax. Use it in the bedroom, living room or just about anywhere. It’s ergonomically-shaped design allows you to use it on your lap, as well as any flat surface. It also comes in 2 colors, black and white. There’s even a Bluetooth® model. The TAB360BT is equipped with a fully functional wireless speaker connection for enhanced audio output over built-in tablet audio speakers.

pic4

You may find the Diamond TAB360 Universal Tablet Stand overly simple in its design and features because simplicity is exactly what it was designed for. But with that simplicity, comes the optimization of tablet gaming and the efficiency of viewing tablet content. If you would like more information on the Diamond TAB360 or any of the other really innovative multimedia products Diamond has to offer, just visit: www.diamondmm.com.

A Closer Look at the Triple Play Feature of the Diamond Game-Caster GC2000

Not sure how you will be using Diamond’s GC2000? In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the Triple Play feature of the Diamond Game-Caster GC2000. The GC2000 is a powerful, yet compact game capturing device that captures, edits and streams your game-play in HD 1080P from all the major game consoles. You can upload and stream your edited scenes onto YouTube, Facebook, Twitch® with real-time Voice Commentary.

The device itself is feature-packed and comes loaded with a host of connectors and ports. The Game-Caster GC2000 is designed to be used with your TV, game consoles, DVD players, set top boxes, router as well as your PC and laptops.

The three modes in which you can use the GC2000 are as follows:

  • PC (Capture/Edit) including real-time “Voice Commentary”
  • Standalone – Record directly to a SD card without a PC
  • Streaming – Stream directly to Twitch, Ustream or your Smartphone/Tablet

 

pic3

The PC (Capture/Edit) Mode
You’ll want to use the PC Mode to directly capture, preview, edit and save your game-play as final files to keep on your PC or laptop. Add real Voice Commentary to every scene. Once it’s captured, you can burn a file to DVD format, stream it to Twitch or Ustream or upload to YouTube.

Connect your game console to the Audio right and left ports, as well as the Component ports on the GC2000, or if you’re using an Xbox1 or PS4, use the HDMI In port, then connect your PC or laptop to the USB 2.0 port. You’ll want to connect your TV to the HDMI Out port to play your game while your computer is doing all the capturing. To start the capturing process, just hit the Record button.

The Standalone Mode
If you want to directly capture and store your game-play on an external SD card, you can use the Standalone Mode on the GC2000. This mode does not require you to be hooked up to a PC at all and gives you the flexibility to edit your files later. Again, connect your game console and TV to the GC2000 and push the Record button to start your capturing. Then take your SD card and transfer the files onto your computer for editing.

 

pic5

The Streaming Mode
If you want to directly capture your game-play and stream it to websites such as Ustream or Twitch, you’ll want to use the Streaming mode. By connecting your router to the GC2000 via the Ethernet port, and using the Shareview software, you can also stream your favorite captured game-play scenes to your tablet or smartphone.

 

pic6

Any one of the Triple Play modes of the GC2000 can be selected by the Mode switch so you can seamlessly go back and forth each mode.

When it comes to game-play, simply having the different options, of capturing and editing, can be a lot of fun and a great way to show off your skills. Diamond Multimedia makes it easy to share those skills. Looking for more information on the Game-Caster GC2000 or other really useful multimedia devices? Simply visit: www.diamondmm.com.
