Wi-Fi TV concept

Posted in Concepts by Conner Flynn on July 26th, 2009

Wi-Fi TV conceptForget the fact that this thing looks like some hopped up PSP wearing bright orange sunglasses. The extremely eye-catching WiFi Tv is basically a handheld internet television that is designed to access on-demand TV services that are available on the internet.

The idea is that TV shows and films can be streamed straight from the internet to the 6-inch touchscreen display. It boasts two slide-out speakers that supposedly provide a comfortable hand position, though we don’t see it. There’s even storage for Bluetooth headphones and a charging point.

Panasonic Viera SV-MC55 1Seg TV

Posted in Panasonic by Conner Flynn on July 22nd, 2009

Panasonic Viera SV-MC55 1Seg TVWhen you think about Panasonic’s line of Viera TVs, what comes to mind? Probably a large HDTV hanging on a wall right? Me too, but the latest Vieras from Panasonic come in a tiny form factor. I’m talking a screen size of just 4.3″.

That’s because these are portable 1Seg TVs that let you record video on both SD and SDHC memory cards. If that isn’t enough for you, it can double as a digital photo frame by displaying images stored on your SD/SDHC memory cards. Not bad for a little tiny Viera huh?

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxes

Posted in Mitsubishi by Conner Flynn on July 15th, 2009

Mitsubishi TVs to come with free Vudu boxesWe’re used to seeing free DVD or Blu-ray players with an HDTV purchase, but Mitsubishi is trying a new approach. Beginning July 16th, authorized retailers will give you a free Vudu box and $50 service credit with every Mitsubishi TV.

The box is only a $150 value, but then again Vudu is the only player out there offering 1080p HDX video rentals right now, plus it supports Pandora, Flickr, YouTube and local streaming, so bundling the TV with the box is an easy way for Mitsubishi to jump into the connected TV market without having to work very hard.

TV TrickleSaver cuts off game console power

Posted in Games by Conner Flynn on July 8th, 2009

TV TrickleSaver cuts off game console powerWe all know that some game consoles consume a whole lot more power than others. Wii won’t mention any names. TrickleStar knows this and so has introduced their TV TrickleSaver device aimed at cutting down on some of that wasted power consumption.

Just plug both your TV and game console into the device (it will also work with a power bar), and then the device does it’s thing, cutting off power to the game console when you shut off your TV. It even works with other devices other than game consoles. TrickleStar outs the PS3 as its primary target, with the Xbox 360 a close second.

LG’s first 3D LCD TV heads for Korea

Posted in LG by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

LG's first 3D LCD TV heads for KoreaLG has finally announced that its first 3D LCD, the 47-inch 47LH50, will be available for purchase next month. Don’t get too excited. It’s headed to Korea. The new TV is based on the 47LH50, so shares its model number, and is functionally identical.

The only difference being that it will have you wearing dorky polarized 3D glasses once in a while. We may just see it here in the US at some point. The old 47LH50 made it to the US, so this one just might as well. No price info yet, but the old one was about $2000.

JVC shows off thin LCD TV with a camel hump

Posted in JVC by Shane McGlaun on June 8th, 2009

jvcthinlcd-sbThin TVs are all the rage right now with CES back in January having more thin screens that massive screen sets. OLED TVs offer the thinnest screen sizes typically, but you pay dearly for the technology. Some LCD TVs and Plasma sets are getting thin as well.

JVC has introduced a new LCD TV with a 32-inch screen that offers a very thin profile only 6.4mm at its thinnest point. That turns out to be a big caveat when you look further at the specs and find at its thickest point, which is basically half the screen, its 22.5mm thick.

Adapter plays back HD on TV from a hard disk

Adapter plays back HD on TV from a hard diskHong Kong gadgeteer Brando can sometimes score a rare hit. We offer this SATA HDD Multi-Media Player Adapter as proof. This small adapter lets you plug in any SATA hard disk, SDHC card, or external USB drive, and play back its media with no computer anywhere. How sweet is that?

You have to wonder about the interface presented to you when you plug it into your TV via HDMI, component, or composite inputs. But even if it’s horrible, you’ll be able to view all kinds of audio and video formats on your TV, including MPEG-4, DivX, and AVI, without a PC anywhere nearby. That’s pretty convenient.

Google bringing BBC streaming TV to America

Posted in Google by Conner Flynn on June 1st, 2009

Google bringing BBC streaming TV to AmericaThe British Broadcasting Corporation which brings us such cool programs as Top Gear, Doctor Who and Planet Earth, is said to be in talks with Google to bring their VOD service to America. Anyone who has ever watched and enjoyed the BBC’s programming knows that this is a good thing.

The BBC produces a bunch of channels that have a wide variety of content and many of these programs never make their way to BBC America, which pretty much just shows fluff. Good news indeed. Once you’ve seen enough English programming, you start to realize just how terrible our own shows are in the states.

iRiver P35 official for this FallInterestingly, a P35 teaser has shown up on iRiver’s website. Until now many were thinking that because the player had an integrated digital TV tuner that is not supported by any U.S broadcaster, that the device would not make it to US shores.

But as we pointed out months ago, there are several versions of the P35. There’s one with digital TV, there’s a WIFI version and a “basic” version with no WIFI. We’re looking forward to learning more about this one. Color us interested.

Posted in ASUS by Conner Flynn on May 12th, 2009

Asus Dual Hybrid TV CardThe new Asus My Cinema-EHD3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/MCE RC PCI-express Dual TV card is designed for users who want to watch and record both digital (ATSC/QAM) and analog (NTSC) TV channels at the same time. The device is embedded with an MPEG2 hardware encoder that dramatically reduces CPU loading while guaranteeing high quality video.

Using the PCI Express x1 interface, it will get transmission speeds of up to 500MB/s(almost 3 times faster than that of a conventional PCI bus which runs at 133MB/s). This will give you smooth pictures regardless of the broadcast content. The Asus My Cinema-EHD3-100/NAQ/FM/AV/MCE RC will also let you keep a constant eye on what’s going on on TV while engaged in other PC-based activities. Dubbed ASUS GadgeTV, this widget adds a small window on the Windows Vista sidebar, allowing users to watch record and take snapshots of live TV from their sidebars.
