03/06/2013 - Sony's Laser Light Source Projector with 3LCD to be available in August
Sony's Laser Light Source Projector with 3LCD to be available in August

It wasn't too long ago that Sony kind of introduced us to its inaugural Laser Light Source Projector with 3LCD technology, but now it's time for the company to let us know a little more about the device. For starters, Sony's officially dubbing it VPL-FHZ55, and it's also emphasizing that it's indeed the world's first laser projector to be powered by 3LCD imaging tech. Just as we'd heard back in January, the lamp-less VPL-FHZ55 can deliver 4,000 lumens of color light at a maximum resolution of 1,920 x 1,200, which Sony says should be more than enough steam to "deliver bright and vivid color reproduction." The VPL-FHZ55 is expected to be available later this August, however there's no word on how much you'll have to spend to add one of these to your setup. But, while we wait for those details to come to light, perhaps you'd be interested in perusing the gallery below.

29/01/2013 - Sony unveils Laser Light Source Projector, claims brightest output in the class

Sony unveils Laser Light Source Projector, claims brightest output in the class

Sony doesn't always break ground on new technology, but it tends to go big when it does. The company's new installation-grade Laser Light Source Projector (similar to the VPL-FH36 you see here) serves as a textbook example. While it's far from the world's first laser projector, it's reportedly the first with a 3LCD laser -- enough to put its 4,000-lumen brightness toward the front of the pack, and help with visibility in less-than-dark boardrooms. Details are scant beyond the projection system itself, although Sony does tout a presentation-friendly 1,920 x 1,200 resolution as well as a picture muting option that gets the show started quickly. We do know that the well-lit output will be tough to miss when the Laser Light Source Projector hits classes and offices in the summer.

Sony reveals its first Laser Light Source Projector at ISE 2013

Basingstoke, January 29, 2013: Sony has today announced at ISE 2013 that it is launching its next generation WUXGA installation projector with Laser Light Source Technology. This ground-breaking product from Sony will be the world's first 3LCD laser, 4,000 lumens WUXGA (1920 x 1200) projector, making it the brightest projector of its kind and a first for the industry.

This new addition to Sony's installation projector line-up follows the award winning and popular design of the VPL-FH31 and VPL-FH36 models, part of the F series which is widely considered to be the top product within its category in Europe. The chassis is designed for optimum flexibility with a clean white finish designed to blend in with its environment.

The Laser Light Source Projector is free from the worry of lamp change with its increased durability and low total cost of ownership (TCO). With newly developed BrightEra[TM] 3LCD technology, the projector has up to 20,000 hours maintenance free time depending on the projector's environment and setup conditions. This feature, based on market feedback, is especially important in the corporate and education sectors where the projector is used for extended periods of time.

"This announcement marks an exciting shift in the market. Sony's pioneering technology delivers on the promises made to our key partners to produce innovative products that perform and exceed market demands. Installation projectors not only have to reproduce the highest quality images but also be relatively maintenance free and eco-friendly. The Laser Light Source Projector delivers on all accounts being mercury free, offering an incredible brightness of 4,000 lumens," said Robert Meakin, Business and Education Product Manager, Sony Professional Solutions Europe.

Based on Sony's Laser Light Source Technology, the projector incorporates lasers, rather than LEDs, to achieve optimum brightness. The white light, like traditional UHP light sources, is directed into the 3LCD engine to deliver incredible picture quality. As a result, the Laser Light Source Projector has substantially brighter images, better contrast ratios and outstanding colour stability.

The projector also features a picture muting mode which allows the user to quickly start the presentation once the mute mode has been turned off. This feature enables the smooth presentation of images with high colour reproduction. The Laser Light Source Projector also delivers amazing installation flexibility as it is tilt free with an efficient portrait mode to ensure the projector is entirely user friendly for both corporate and education markets.

23/08/2011 - Sony A77 24 megapixel camera teases with more specs and photos
After multiple spec and picture leaks, we seem to have finally hit the mother-lode with even more details of Sony's soon-to-be-released A77 DSLR. With a reported Exmor HD CMOS sensor, the camera is said to work at ISO 100-16000 with an expandable ISO 50 option and 1/8000 shutter speed. Rumors are swirling that the camera has a 19 point AF sensor and 12fps burst, rather than the previously leaked specs citing an 11 point AF and 10fps burst. It reportedly runs on a Bionz processor and has built-in flash and GPS as well, and has enough juice to capture 500 shots on a single charge. Word on the street is that there's a TrueBlack 921k swiveling display round back and a three million dot OLED viewfinder. Of course, we won't be able to separate fact from fiction until the camera launches later this week. If you can't hold your breath that long, check the source for more leaked pics of Sony's slick new shooter.

15/05/2011 - Poll: Why don't you have a projector?
Seriously, what's stopping you from hooking up a projector and enjoying your high definition viewing on a 100-inch or bigger screen the way we all know you deserve? There's no arguing that bigger is better, so now that projectors are cheaper and brighter than ever there's less of a reason to opt for anything else. But there you sit, staring at your puny 50- or 60-inch plasma, LCD or rear projection unit pretending that it's actually getting the job done. Explain the reasoning to us below because frankly we just don't get it.

04/10/2010 - Toshiba shelves OLED production plans, focuses on LCDs and licking its wounds
Man, it's got to be tough for the proud guys and gals at Toshiba these days. First the company gets whooped in the optical media format wars, and now it's having to ingloriously bow out of the OLED race as well. Citing a recent uptick in LCD demand alongside the impact of the recent global economic crisis, Toshiba says its mass production plans for OLED displays have now been "frozen" and will be reviewed from scratch. That sounds like a company cutting its losses to us, which should make our fellow OLED enthusiasts all sorts of unhappy. There had better be some damn fine (and thin) LCDs in Toshiba's pipeline if it hopes to keep us sweet.

28/06/2010 - SRS TheaterSound featured in new Samsung LCDs and Plasmas
SRS LogoWhen we think of surround sound we think of lots of speakers, but SRS intends to change that with its front rendered surround sound technologies like SRS TheaterSound. When we first heard of this idea we thought of it as simulated surround sound, but then we realized; hey wait, all surround sound is simulated -- there aren't actually bullets whizzing around our living room. So while the jury is still out on how many speakers are required to make you feel like you're in the middle of the action, we always appreciate steps in the right direction and the new Samsung owners will get the benefits of SRS TheaterSound. In addition to the surround sound part, it also helps tames loud commercial and inaudible dialog. Of course in this case hearing is believing, and this is one we'll have to hear for ourselves. Assuming we can get our hands on one of the latest Samsung LED back-lit LCDs or plasmas to try out.

14/04/2010 - Viewsonic rolls out energy-efficient VT2300LED LCD TV
Well, it's taken quite a while since its debut at CES in January, but Viewsonic has now finally managed to get its 23-inch VT2300LED LCD TV out the door. While there's not exactly a ton of stand-out features here, the side lit LED backlighting does apparently help to deliver energy savings of 30 to 50% over traditional LCDs, and you'll get some decent specs all around, including a full 1080p resolution, a 5 ms response time, an ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner, and three HDMI ports, among other standard fare. What's more, while this one has a list price of $399, it looks like some retailers (including Amazon) are already selling for it as little as $299.

09/04/2010 - LCD vs Plasma in 2010
LCD vs plasma
No two ways about it, 2009 was a bad year for plasma. How else could you describe a year where the so called king of plasmas -- and to many, HDTVs -- exits the market? It was a hard enough hit when Kuro lovers learned that Panasonic would be manufacturing 'em instead of Pioneer, but when at the last minute Pioneer canceled the plan before the first Panasonic-branded-Kuro ever shipped, plasma lovers everywhere died a little inside. But all was not lost and Panasonic, Samsung and LG proudly continued on and didn't miss a beat when Vizio joined the quitters of 2008 -- Panasonic even opened the biggest plasma plant yet in 2009. Panasonic did step up, and by some accounts filled the void left by the Kuro by managing to win most of the best of awards of 2009; only to be tarnished by reports that the black levels were depreciated faster than expected.

But the year wasn't all bad, as plasma prices dropped and in the second quarter of last year it actually did pretty well. Then at CES 2010 Panasonic's 3D plasma demo stole the 3D show, and early reports showed that the new line offered even better blacks and a better 3D effect than LCD TVs. So while there are no signs that plasma will ever be the king of flat screen TVs, it has proven for yet another year that although LCDs garner the lion's share of HDTV sales, plasma still owns a piece of the market and offers some advantages over the competition. So while the LCD vs plasma debate has never been as fun or as meaningful as a format war -- after all it isn't like choosing one excludes you from viewing content -- it is an interesting battle to follow. In the coming years we expect LCD to continue to push plasma up in size and plasma to push LCD blacker and faster. So the great news is that in the end it is the consumer that is getting better HD viewing options.

Epson claims EH-TW450 is 'ultimate gaming projector,' straps PS3 to nerd in jumpsuit to prove it (video)
Nothing says "extreme" quite like wrist-guards... and knee pads... and elbow pads... and a PS3 Slim backpack. Epson combined all that and more to create its vision of an "extreme gamer," a Ghostbusters cast-off with a gaming console on his back and an EH-TW450 projector on his chest used to splay Need for Speed: Shift on the walls of buildings, the ceilings of clubs, and the interiors of wind-tunnels. It's exciting stuff, shown in the video below. Why this projector out of all the company offers? We're not entirely sure. It's a 3LCD 720p model with a 3000:1 contrast ratio and a single one watt speaker that probably couldn't overcome the din of all the road traffic this extremophile was dodging. If you want in on this kind of action expect to pay about $1,000 -- for the projector. You're on your own for the rest of the kit. Loss of self-respect? That comes for free.

New television power consumption limits imposed by California's Energy Commission (CEC) could cut aggregate annual power consumption of LCD-TVs worldwide in half by the year 2013, if these standards are adopted universally, according to iSuppli.

If all of the 200 million LCD TVs set to be shipped in 2013 complied with the CEC standard, they would use a total of 64.4 billion kilowatt hours for the year, compared to 126.8 billion if they didn't, iSuppli estimates.
