We've got all the facts you want to know about the annual festival celebrated by millions of people around the globe.

Diwali 2016

Following we're going to expose all the facts you should know if you're not familiar with the annual festivity.

Why is it called Diwali?
Diwali is one of the most important festivals for Hindus. It means row of lights and signifies the triumph of good over evil according to the legend of Lord Rama and his wife Sita. It's said that after serving 14 years in exile, Rama returned to the city of Ayodhya and vanquished the 10-headed demon king Ravana, who had kidnapped his wife. As a result, residents of the city lit rows of clay lamps to celebrate Lord Rama's triumph. Nowadays, Diwali also represents the Hindu, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains New Year and lasts 5 days. 
When do we celebrate it in 2016? 
Diwali's festival is on different dates every year because it's calculated by the position of the moon and the Hindu lunar calendar. This year, Diwali falls on Sunday 30th October and ends at 3rd November. 
What should you do to celebrate Diwali? 
People decorate their homes and workplaces with diyas or lighting oil lamps and candles. Large fireworks are displayed to mark the return of Rama. However, each Diwali's day has its own rituals. For instance, on the first day, observers clean their homes; on the secvond day, they decorate their homes with colourful floor patterns; on the third day, lamps are lit in the streets and prayers are offered to Lakshmi before the evening feasts; on the 4th day husbands and wifes celebrate their union and on the final day it's the brother and sister relationship what's celebrated.

And you? How will you celebrate Diwali?

While 4K Ultra HD televisions are right here, content is still not there.
4K Ultra HD
4K, also known as Ultra HD (UHD), just like its former brother HD was a few years ago, has become all anyone in the television business is talking about. 4K Ultra HD offers four times the resolution of traditional HD displays. The answer to this improvement has something to do with the amount of pixels a 4K TV contains. While traditional HD has 1920 columns and 1080 rows of pixels, Ultra HD has a total resolution of 3840 pixels by 2160. However, when you try to buy a new television and you are offered to a 4K TV you realize that there's a lack of 4K content out there.

Vector 3 has enabled the playout update of a local TV news channel in Kentucky and the launchment of a fashion multimedia plaform in Chicago.
Scene Network & EKB-TV
EKB-TV and Scene Network are the television channels that chose Vector 3 to broadcast in the best standards of quality. Whereas EKB-TV was an experienced growing company, Scene Network needed help in their playout automation foundation.

John Logie Baird 90yearsOfTVGoogle
Yesterday Google commemorated the 90th anniversary of the first television demonstration in London by changing its Doodle. In Vector 3 we didn't meet the Scots-born inventor, John Logie Baird, but the grandfather of Vector 3's founding members built a mechanical television, probably foreseeing what Logie Baird's new invention would cause a huge impact to humanity.
