Samsung High End 3D Glasses

3D is obviously on its way and it didn't take Samsung long to come up with a pair of glasses to go with them. Unfortunately, these come at a huge $150.00 price and are compatible only with Samsung electronics. We know that as exciting as the new technology will be when it comes out, purchasing a $3,000.00 3D TV, Blu-ray player and glasses will cost a good chunk of change.

Electronic Companies Venture Into Wireless TV


Hitachi, Panasonic, and Toshiba are working on 60GHz RF transceiver chips that will work with integrated antennas on digital home electronics. In basic English, this translates into wireless TVs. We may get to see the next wave of networking sometime this year. Panasonic is also working on a version for kiosks that will transfer a standard definition film in 9 seconds or a CD in five.

Next Up, UHD


As soon as we get comfortable with one technology, another trots in. This time it is a higher def known as UHD (Ultra High Definition.) This means that the 1920 x 1080 resolution will be four times higher at 3840 x 2160. Don't panic as the new technology, displayed in an 84" LG screen, will probably not be commercially available until 2020.

TVs With Internet Access For The Holidays


Major manufacturers plan to launch TVs for the holidays that can integrate the Net with traditional broadcasting without the need for a set-top box. Having learned their lesson from the last convergence that came with browsers and were too much for the average consumer, these Web sets only will need a remote to access. For example, this W Series Sony Bravia has an ethernet connection in the back and Bravia Internet Video capability built-in.

While this may not be good news for set top box makers, it certainly is for Sony, Samsung, LG, Panasonic, Vizio and other companies. Look for prices between $1,000.00 and $2,000.00 for a 40" screen.

We have extolled the virtues of our Flip Video before and they have released a new one in time for the holidays. The MinoHD captures up to 2 hours of video on its 8GB of memory. Compatible with PC or Mac, they have updated their FlipShare software so that it super simple to edit, and upload. We especially appreciate the still-image capture. Pick a frame, drag and drop, and you get game picture.
