Kanex, maker of audio-visual solutions for Apple computers, is excited to announce the C24DL, a full resolution dual-link digital video inverter (DVI) to 27 inch Apple LED Cinema Display (ACD). The C24DL is a simple dual-link DVI with USB to Mini DisplayPort converter designed for users with legacy Macs (2006-early 2008 MacBook Pro, 2005-mid 2007 Mac Mini) or PCs with high-end graphics cards to connect specifically to a 27 inch ACD.
The Kanex C247DL supports the native HD resolution (2560×1440) of the ACD not available with other standard DVI adapters. The innovative converter actively converts the video signal from the dual-link DVI delivering pixel perfect resolution. The included USB cable powers the C247DL, allows for audio transfer to the ACD speakers, and supports all USB 2.0 functions including use of the iSight camera.
The C247DL allows PC users to enjoy the best gaming experience possible. Users with PC’s equipped with high-end graphic cards such as AMD Radeon™ and NVIDIA™ can now enjoy playing on the exceptionally rich and life-like ACD.
Looking for a display that can do justice to all that 4K footage you’ve been shooting on your Red One or Arri Alexa lately? Okay, perhaps not. But if you were, then the DuraVision FDH3601 from Eizo Nanao could handle it easily with 4096 x 2160 pixels spread over 36.4-inches of LED-backlit real estate. It comes with another big number too: a price tag of ¥2.88 million ($36,000), which gently hints at the fact that this beast is primarily aimed at specialist industrial applications. Eizo claims it’s perfect for air traffic control, where staff can make full use of specs like “Digital Uniformity Correction” circuitry to compensate for uneven color or brightness, motion sensors to power the monitor on or off as needed, and a stand that can be minutely adjusted to get the perfect angle. Suddenly, despite the heavy burden of responsibility and the fact that you have to keep your phone switched off all the time, that career choice seems almost worth it.
D-Link today announced its MainStage™ for Intel® Wireless Display (DHD-131) is now available, offering consumers an easy way to enjoy and share content from laptops[i] on an HDTV, from surfing the Web, to viewing photos, to streaming online videos.[ii] Delivering the web directly to TV screens, D-Link’s new MainStage makes the biggest screen in today’s homes the “main stage” for an array of home entertainment in 1080p HD and 5.1 digital surround sound.[iii]
“The Internet is truly indispensible in today’s homes – whether for enjoyment, work, school, or sharing family moments,” said Daniel Kelley, associate vice president of consumer marketing, D-Link North America. “MainStage lets you wirelessly project movies and TV shows from Netflix and Hulu, or personal home videos and photo slideshows, to the best screen in the home, the HDTV. If you already own a notebook with Intel Wireless Display, it’s one of the easiest ways to work and play online from your couch.”
D-Link® MainStage enables consumers to seamlessly enjoy and share PC content from an Intel® Core™ processor-based notebook on a TV. Simply plug MainStage into the TV using an HDMI or A/V cable and with a push of a button automatically connects to your router, allowing consumers to surf the web and view home movies from a home network or laptop. In addition to enjoying content at home, MainStage also offers today’s mobile professionals an easy way to send colorful and animated presentations and online content to flat-panel displays in conference rooms for a range of business presentation needs. Furthermore, while MainStage users are showing a movie or presentation on the big screen, they can simultaneously work on the notebook that is projecting to the TV.
“D-Link’s MainStage TV adapter is a great example of Intel® WiDi 2.0 in action,” said Joe Van de Water, consumer product marketing manager at Intel. “Intel WiDi 2.0 lets you wirelessly stream content from your PC to your HDTV with no cables or attachments to your PC.

Micro HDMI Cable
The HDMI 1.4 specification introduces a new HDMI Micro “Type D” connector designed for cell phones, pocket cameras, and other portable devices. Approximately the size of a Micro USB connector. Featuring a full nineteen-pin array like other HDMI connectors, the HDMI Micro Connector can handle video signals up to 1080p. This new connector is approximately 50% smaller than the size of the existing HDMI Mini Connector.
A Micro HDMI Connector (HDMI Type D) defined in the HDMI 1.4 specification, keeps the standard 19 pins of Types A (Standard HDMI Connector) and C (Mini HDMI Connector) but shrinks the connector size to something resembling a micro-USB connector. The Type D HDMI Connector is 2.8 mm × 6.4 mm, whereas the Type C connector is 2.42 mm × 10.42 mm; for comparison, a micro-USB connector is 2.94 mm × 7.8 mm and USB Type A is 11.5 mm × 4.5 mm.
The NEW Ivuna Micro HDMI “Type D” Cable can handle digital video signals up to full 1080p HD from your handheld devices such as Mobile Phones, Pocket Digital Cameras, and other portable digital devices.
The NEW Ivuna Cable is a Type A to Type D HDMI Cable. Type D is a Micro HDMI connector and version 1.4 HDMI cable.

Wall mounting a flat screen HDTV looks cool, but it presents certain challenges in many instances. The first is how to mount the TV securely and in a way that you can see the picture ideally. The other is how to get your HDMI and power cables ran to the TV.
The HDMI cables on the market today often have large end connectors that can be hard to connect behind TVs that are wall mounted because of the space between the wall and the TV. Cablesson has unveiled a new line of HDMI adapter that swivels to help with difficult connections.
The cool feature of the adapters is that one end of the cable has a connector that flips up and down 180-degrees making an elbow allowing for clearance in tight spaces. The adapters support HDMI 1.3 and full 1080p images along with up to 16-bit colour. The cables will be available via UKHDMI and other retail outlets.
We’ve been waiting for 3D Blu-ray support to hit the PS3 for a good long while now, and Sony’s been promising it would happen for, well, exactly that same amount of time. Yesterday the company confirmed that the 3D-enabling 3.50 firmware update is less than a week away, dropping on September 21, and here’s proof that it works
After the 2310m comes the, erm, 2310e. HP has put its 1080p-resolving 23-inch monitor on a strict training regimen and returned with this new unit that checks in at under an inch in thickness. The 2310e brings as much gloss as a humanoid can handle, even going so far as to replace the usual buttons with touch-sensitive light-up controls. Speaking of light, the jumbo HP logo on the back blossoms in a lustrous white when you turn it on. If that doesn’t curb your enthusiasm for this cake slicer, you’ll want to know it has DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, 250 nits of brightness, a 5ms response time, and an admittedly meaningless 8,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio.
There has been much talk on our forums about the Playstations 720p 3D gaming limitation. Many people have assumed that the issue is with the hardware but Sony have stated that it is actually the HDMI 1.4 standard which is the cause of the resolution limitation.
HDMI 1.4 is a standard which calls for the following restrictions – 720p 60fps, 720p 50fps, and 1080p 24fps. Sony have therefore taken the route of forcing all 3D game related content to 720p which means they can use the higher frame rates for a smoother gaming experience. Obviously this is not an ideal situation as the PC environment does allow for dual DVI configurations to achieve higher frame rates at 1080p but unfortunately this is not possible on a PS3.
The graphics hardware in the Playstation 3 is still quite capable, although its obviously looking rather outdated by PC standards so perhaps the HDMI 1.4 standard has worked in Sonys favour, especially when trying to power a modern gaming engine at high resolutions.
