3D HDMI Cable

Certain products herald the arrival of The Future. Think about the first time you saw someone using a laptop on an airplane. The first time youbought a song over the Internet. And the first flat-screen TV you saw: after decades of promises, a TV you could hang on a wall. It was like having a World’s Fair in your living room.

The flat-screen TV was a stunning change from its predecessors. And once it had been shrunken to mere inches thick, what else was there to do to it? Plenty, as it turns out.

Now if you are shopping for a television, you have new features to consider, like 3-D and LED-lit liquid-crystal displays.
Many television manufacturers – including LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Vizio – are already delivering 3-D-capable models. Cablesson have released a 3d hdmi cable to go with sony led tv. Three-dimensional imaging has come a long way since the films of the 1950s – think “Avatar” rather than “Creature From the Black Lagoon” – but you still need glasses to enjoy the technology.

Shoppers should expect to pay around $250 more for 3-D than for a comparably equipped 2-D television. Most sets come with one or two pairs of goggles; additional ones may cost more than $100 each.

Is this a cool gift for someone? Yes, it will probably be the first 3-D TV on the block. But bear in mind that 3-D programming is extremely limited, for now. (Sky and Virgin have announced a 3-D channel for the World Cup, which opens Friday, but check if your cable or satellite provider will be carrying it.) This year, the Discovery Channel hopes to introduce a 3-D channel in collaboration with IMAX and Sony, and Panasonic and DirecTV plan 3-D satellite channels.

MHL trys one more time??? will it work

Today announced the formation of the MHL™ (Mobile High-Definition Link) Consortium to develop a new mobile audio/video interface standard for directly connecting mobile phones and other portable consumer electronics (CE) devices to high-definition televisions (HDTVs) and displays. The MHL standard features a single-cable with a low pin-count interface able to support up to 1080p high-definition (HD) video and digital audio while simultaneously providing power to the mobile device. The MHL Consortium is also announcing the availability of an abridged draft specification available for review. The MHL Consortium was established by the Mobile High-Definition Interface Working Group announced on September 28, 2009 and is responsible for developing, licensing and promoting the new mobile connectivity technology as an industry standard open to anyone desiring to become an adopter and enabling the development of compliant mobile and display products across a broad connectivity ecosystem.  There was a set back when it was not incorporated in the HDMI 1.4, Even the specifications had changed on the Silicon Images website about the technology. The cables have been out long ago in the market but there has been no demand for this kind of technology as yet. Products implementing MHL technology will feature: * HD Video and Digital Audio Consumers will be able to display HD video content with up to 1080p picture quality and digital audio from their mobile device on an HDTV. * Low Pin-Count Interface HD video and digital audio is transmitted via a low pin-count interface simultaneously providing data, control and power, which allows mobile devices to maintain their small form factor and keep implementation costs low. * Provision of Power to the Mobile Device Digital HD content can be output from the mobile device over a single cable while power is provided to the device. For example, a mobile phone can play back a full-length movie on an HDTV without draining power, so when the playback is completed the mobile phone can continue to be used for other purposes, such as calls and emails. At the moment many brands like Cablesson are working on their 2m hdmi cable that includes Hdmi 1.4. Yes, all in one package 3d, ethernet and Audio return Channel. The project has been dubbed HEAC by the makers.

Sony introduced the first 3D sound for home theater

Sony introduced three new upcoming products for its audio lineup this Wednesday, all of which offer to bring so-called 3D sound to the home.

These new 3D audio products, which are a first for Sony, include two soundbars and a home theater system. Going by the names of HT-CT150 and HT-CT350, the two soundbars will provide 3.1 3D audio, with the HT-SF470 home theater system offering up 5.1 3D delights.

All three of these offerings are surprisingly reasonably priced. The 340-watt HT-CT150 will set you back just $300, and is a soundbar designed to attach to Sony’s 2010 32-inch Bravia TVs. The HT-CT350, which comes in at $400, is designed to match Sony sets that are 40 inches or larger. The final new offering, the HT-SF470 will set buyers back $550 and features a 1000-watt 5.1 surround sound system. Those who choose to pick up the top-of-the-line model will get wireless floor-standing front and rear speakers, a subwoofer, an HDMI repeater, 3 HDMI inputs, and more.

Google TV and Intel CPU snub

If Google thought it would be easy to get home entertainment companies to sign up to their Google TV project then they should probably think again.  Panasonic has become the latest company to turn their nose up at the idea of Android and Intel nesting in their HDTVs, claiming that the open-source OS’ processing demands would require too expensive a CPU to keep prices sufficiently low.

The move follows Samsung’s lead, the company having announced last month that it would be continuing with its own internet and widget platform rather than adopting one of Google’s design.  Panasonic will continue to use its own proprietary system, which allows for Netflix and YouTube access, together with basic internet-sourced information widgets, but which falls short of the full browser functionality that Google TV promises.

Still, Google may also have plans to bypass HDTV manufacturers altogether and push a set-top box that would daisy-chain in-between existing cable or satellite boxes and televisions.  However, they’re also rumored to be looking to work with media providers so as to reduce the cost of such a STB for end-users.

Sony Blue-ray players will be capable of 3D 1080P by HDMI 1.3

Surprisingly, Sony has announced that they’re going to be sending full 1080p 3D signals over existing cables. Of course, that’s not the whole story.

Sony revealed recently that their new players are capable of a lot more than we thought. Mainly, they’re able to process a 1080p 3D signal.

There’s been a lot of confusion with the advent of 3D and HDMI 1.4, and the initial word was that HDMI 1.3 just couldn’t handle 3D in 1080p. As Sony pointed out though, that’s not really the case. Their new Blu-ray players can hack a 1080p signal using your existing HDMI cords.

So what’s the deal? Well, there are two real factors here. First off, while Sony’s new player doesn’t bear the HDMI 1.4 branding, it sounds like it will still be HDMI 1.4 compatible. As a Sony rep said, “The players and theater systems support the HDMI 1.4 spec for 3D playback, but may not support all of the qualifications of spec.”

So the players won’t support everything required to get HDMI 1.4 branding, but you’ll still be able to get the 3D benefits of HDMI 1.4 while using an HDMI 1.4 cord. The player doesn’t work with the other features of the new spec though, such as an audio return channel, which means it doesn’t get HDMI 1.4 branding.

The second thing, and perhaps the most important, is that HDMI 1.3 will indeed carry a 3D signal at 1080p. It can’t handle 3D at sixty frames per second though, only thirty. Of course, while watching movies on most Blu-ray players, the output is set to 24fps, which HDMI 1.3 can handle just fine.

3D at home

The best news I have heard this week was that the specs for 3D Blu-ray were finalized and that the PS3 would support 3D. That means with a simple firmware update PS3 owners will be able to enjoy 3D movies assuming they have a compatible TV. Sounds like it’s time for me to upgrade!

reald-logo-sg

Sony also announced this week that it has teamed up with RealD to bring 3D technology to the home. You might recognize the RealD name as the company who is behind the 3D technology for many of the high-end 3D films in theaters like Avatar and others. Odds are if you watched a 3D movie in the theater lately, RealD was the tech behind the cool movie.

Sony will be licensing RealD tech for use in consumer products in 2010, including the stereoscopic 3D tech behind RealD in theaters. The tech will go into 3D Bravia LCD TVs and 3D eyewear needed to view the content.

With Movies Streamed Instantly from Netflix, Blu-ray/DVD Playback and Downloadable Videos via the PlayStation®Network, the PlayStation 3 System Offers The Industry’s Most Comprehensive Options for Watching Movies and TV Shows
FOSTER CITY and LOS GATOS, Calif., October 26, 2009 – Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. (SCEA) and Netflix, Inc. [Nasdaq: NFLX] today announced that they are joining forces to make thousands of movies and TV episodes from Netflix available to be streamed instantly to TVs via the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system. Netflix expects to begin streaming via the PS3 system next month at no additional cost to Netflix members in the United States who have a PS3 system.
Today’s announcement pairs two of the most popular and fastest growing home entertainment brands in the U.S. The PS3 system’s installed base has reached close to 9 million units in the United States, and Netflix recently reported 11.1 million U.S. subscribers as of September 30.
The partnership further solidifies the PS3 system as the most complete home entertainment hub on the market today, enabling consumers to play high-definition games, watch Blu-ray movies, listen to music, view photos, browse the Internet, and download content from PlayStation®Network − from exclusive games to blockbuster movies and popular TV shows. PS3 system owners will soon enjoy an unparalleled experience watching their favorite movies and TV shows streamed instantly from Netflix, downloading from the PlayStation Network or watching Blu-ray/DVD media. The Netflix offering expands on the entertainment experience delivered to PS3 system owners via PlayStation Network.
For only $8.99 a month, Netflix members can instantly watch unlimited movies and TV episodes streamed to their TVs and computers via Netflix ready devices such as the PS3 system and can receive unlimited DVDs delivered quickly to their homes.
“The PlayStation 3 system has always been about more than just gaming, and it will soon be the only platform in the industry to offer consumers such a variety of convenient options for enjoying movies and TV shows,” said Jack Tretton, president and CEO, SCEA. “Whether you want to watch content on Blu-ray disc and DVD, download it from the PlayStation Network’s video delivery service, or stream videos instantly from Netflix, the PS3 system is the only solution that offers it all.”
“As instantly watching movies and TV episodes streamed from Netflix becomes an increasingly popular way to enjoy the Netflix service, our goal is to rapidly expand the devices that stream to our members,” said Netflix CEO and co-founder Reed Hastings. “As a leading game console and Blu-ray disc player, bringing Netflix to the PS3 system is a real win for both Netflix members and PS3 system owners.”
Initially, watching movies instantly streamed from Netflix via the PS3 system will be enabled by a free, instant streaming Blu-ray disc that is being made available to all Netflix members. The free instant streaming disc leverages Blu-ray’s BD-Live™ technology to access the Internet and activate the Netflix user interface on the PS3 system, which must be online via Wi-Fi or Ethernet.
Netflix members simply slide the disc into their PS3 systems to reveal movies and TV episodes that can be watched instantly. These titles are conveniently organized into a variety of categories based on members’ personal preferences, popular genres, new arrivals and members’ individual instant Queues. Members can use the Netflix Web site or navigate directly on their PS3 systems to add movies and TV shows to their Queues. With the PS3 system’s Wireless Controller, members can choose a movie to watch from their instant Queues or just play directly from any of the lists. They also have the ability to read synopses and rate movies. In addition, they have the option of fast-forwarding and rewinding the video stream via the Wireless Controller.
Netflix members and PS3 system owners can now reserve a free instant streaming disc for PS3 systems by going to www.netflix.com/ps3. Upon availability, the instant streaming disc will be delivered for free by first-class mail, generally one business day after members request it.

Sony VAIO L Touch HD PC/TV

                          sonyvaiol-series

“Touch me, touch me” sang 80s legend Samantha Fox, “I want to feel your body,” and while the intentions of Sony’s new VAIO L Series of touchscreen desktops may be different, the sentiment is just the same.  Announced alongside the skinny VAIO X, the L Series is being pushed – like other big-screen all-in-one PCs in Sony’s past – as a hybrid HDTV and computer, though with its 24-inch 1920 x 1080 display, optional Blu-ray and optional TV tuners we suppose it does have more of a claim than most.  As for the touchscreen, that’s used not only for Windows 7’s multitouch functionality but to control Sony’s own Media Gallery DVR app.

Projected 46 Million 3DTV by 2013

3DTV will be a huge market in the coming years. I mentioned a 50-inch Panasonic 3DTV set to hit the market next year last week that will be among the first 3DTVs to land in homes around the world. The Panasonic 3DTV certainly won’t be the last set to hit the living room though.

According to research firm GigaOM, the market for 3DTVs will boom over the next three years. By 2013, 3DTV shipments are set to hit 46 million units. The research firm reports that both Sony and Panasonic are both betting that 3DTV sales will help to rejuvenate their sales.

Over the next several years, 3D is expected to become a slight cost premium feature along the lines of how 120Hz refresh rates are today. The belief is that many consumers will opt for 3D capable sets even if they watch mostly 2D content. The advent of 3D gaming will also push more consumers to purchase 3DTVs as well. The research firm does point out that active 3D glasses need to get cheaper before 3D grows more popular
