The past decade has been a renaissance for TV technology. Televisions have gotten slimmer; we’ve gone from large-frame TVs like CRTs and floor-standing rear-projection models to the flat-panel displays we have on the market today. Screen sizes have also evolved, with 60-inch plus models growing in popularity and becoming living-room staples.
Sony has just announced the release of their first 4K Ultra HD TV for retail sale. The new X900 Series 4K Ultra HD 3D Internet TV is also one of the industry’s first available 4K televisions. Available in a 55-inch or 65-inch model, the X900 features a 3D LCD panel with 3840 x 2160 Ultra HD 4K resolution. Amazingly, that’s four times the resolution of a standard Full HD 1920 x 1080p television.
There’s no arguing that Sharp has continually been at the forefront of consumer trends, and for 2013, the CES tradeshow in Las Vegas made it clear that the consumer is demanding larger TV panels that offer more ways to “connect” with media sources. Taking this knowledge to heart, Sharp surpassed every one of their major competitors by equipping 85% of all their 2013 retail TVs with “Smart” Internet connectivity.
The CES trade show in Las Vegas has grown into an electronics cavalcade, with old industry giants like Sony and Samsung bumping shoulders and vying for our attention with dozens of mid-level manufacturers and startup companies.
There used to be a time when your appliances were not as smart as you. A time when you told the coffee maker what time you were getting up, the coffee maker didn’t tell you. A time when you, not your smartphone, scheduled lights out. There was a time when we ruled the electronics in our lives, and not the other way around.
The new digital divide is between smart TVs and not-so-smart TVs. That’s because top-of-the-class television sets today function more like computers than the passive monitors of even a few years ago. The newest TVs are Wi-Fi-capable, embed dual processors and sport USB and Ethernet jacks.
Whether you love plasma’s deep blacks or fast refresh rates (perfect for keeping up with high-speed action and 3D performance), you’ll be drawn to newly-shipping TVs from Panasonic, plasma’s biggest backer.
The first tangible result of Panasonic’s decision to open its Viera Connect TV platform to outside developers is the Logitech TV Cam for Skype ($149), available in May. The high-def (720p) video camera with microphones capable of picking up conversation from sofa sitters ten feet away plugs into a USB port on one of 21 new Panasonic TV models.
Sometimes you want the signal from a source component to travel through an intermediary component without alteration. Thus, when a home theater or handheld electronics product is described as having pass-through capability, it means that the audio or video can exit exactly as it entered.
