Sony A8F 4K HDR TV Is Loaded With Tech, Uses Its Screen To Produce Audio

One thing that will never not appeared in a big electronic show like the CES is TV. There are abundance of them on the show floor at CES from companies big and small, but we are all ears for what Sony has to offer with its new A8F 4K HDR OLED TV with Acoustic Surface. It is not immediately clear that the official product name, A8F 4K HDR OLED TV, is also about sound – a department which not many TV has a reason to show off. But A8F has a lot to be proud about because, if it delivers as it has promised, you may very well never need a sound bar at all.

LG Unveiled Revolutionary Paper-like OLED TV That Rolls Into A Box At CES

If you are old enough, you may be able to recall that in the early days of CRT TVs, some of them came with integrated cabinet that has functional doors (either swing or sliding type). I am not entirely sure what was the rationale behind this TV-in-cabinet (specifically, those with doors), but my best guesses would be, one, to keep children off the TV (because some models actually had lock on them) and two, perhaps to blend with the rest of the home furnishing. Whatever the reasons were, the days of hiding TV behind cabinet was long over, or is it? As it turns out, LG may have inadvertently recreated a similar concept, but with modern OLED display, of course.

The Fascinating Evolution Of Screen Technology

From our smartphones and TVs to laptops and tablets, it is not unusual for most of us to spend at least half of our waking hours in front of a screen. Of course, the types of screens and the amazing ways they work have definitely evolved over the decades — whether you are old enough to remember watching Lawrence Welk on your grandma’s massive black and white TV console, or young enough that your first smartphone was an Apple iPhone 5S.

Vizio SmartCast P-Series Ditches Remote In Favor Of Android Tablet

When Smart TV, aka connected TV, was introduced it changes the way we watch TV and in a way, took a stab at paid cable TV providers. We are no longer bound to free-to-air TV and subject to cable TV’s schedule which often do not fit our lifestyle. It was a new found freedom. A leap it was from traditional TV but there’s one thing that never change: however fancy the display and however ‘smart’ the TV are, the TV from past to present have one thing in common: remote control. We are in a ‘smart’ era and it kind of sucks that we are not firing up holographic menus from our coffee table when surfing the channels. No, we are not there yet, but with the announcement of the Vizio SmartCast P-Series Ultra HD HDR Home Theater Display, couch potatoes are finally seeing some real advancement in TV and home entertainment in general.

LG Unveils IoT Hub, K Series Handset and Eye-watering HDR 4K TV

We try to avoid CES every year. Why? Because, a show like this never fail to remind us that we have to work triple hard to own all the delightful gadgets and as you might have guess it, LG is one of the biggest “culprit” that would make us exclaim ‘this is why we are broke!’ Besides the robot vacuum/security guard, the other South Korean electronic biggie also announced the newest flagship 4K HDR-enabled OLED TVs for 2016 (77/65-inch G6 and 65/55-inch E6), a handsome Internet of Things hub that comes with a built-in speaker (SmartThinQ Hub), and K Series smartphone, which is the newest mass-tier handset set to replace the L Series.

Sceptre Introduces New 55-inch UHD TV with SRS TruSurround HD Sound and Super Thin Bezel

Budget-conscious gadget lovers must be drooling all over the new current flood of UHD TVs. While nice, the current horde of big screen, eye-watering resolution television sets are anything but affordable. And seriously, not everyone needs a 105-inch variety, much less one that spans 8 meters across. This is where California-based TV maker Sceptre comes in. It wants to smash the price barrier of UHD TV ownership and it has already did that with a 900 bucks example and here’s another one, the Sceptre 55-inch U550CV-UMR+ 4K UHD TV, that promised to strike “a perfect balance of quality, performance, technology, and affordability.” Though it is worthy to note that price is unknown yet – even though the official press said it is available now though various channels, including Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, Sears’ Marketplace and Walmart. However, we are expecting a sub $1,500 sticker since the 49-inch model cost under 900. Continue reading Sceptre Introduces New 55-inch UHD TV with SRS TruSurround HD Sound and Super Thin Bezel

Sony’s XBR X900C Series UHD TV Is Thinner Than An iPhone 6. Mind-blown.

While Samsung and LG are busy in the pursuit of curved displays, Sony has not forgotten that we, the consumers, might still be yearning for a thinner TV set (do we?). At the world’s most celebrated consumer electronics show earlier this month, the Japanese electronics giant debuted its 2015 4K Ultra HD TVs and among them is the super thin XBR 900C series sets, featuring a new ultra-thin floating style design. The new lineup is built with a new 4K processor X1 that promised improved color accuracy, contrast and clarity and will be offered in sizes ranging from 43 through to 75 inches.

Samsung And Yves Behar Teams Up To Create A TV That Looks Like An Art Piece

Does a TV needs to be designed by a famed designer? We don’t have the answer to that question, but apparently, Samsung thinks so. It has enlisted the talent of Fuseproject’s Yves Behar to create one of its Tizen-powered smart TV. Samsung has announced a few of TV sets in this year’s CES, but this particular model dreamed up by Behar, dubbed S9W, has a special place in the lineup, mainly because it was the work of art by the much revered designer of our time, Yves Behar, who was responsible for a slew of desirable products including smart lock, luxury phone and more. It the first product from the long-term partnership between Fuseproject and Samsung. For the S9W, Fuseproject conceived as an art object with the S9W curved display being the sculpture.

Samsung’s New Tizen-powered Smart TVs Has Quantum-dot Technology To Make UHD Even More Vivid

Even before dust for Ultra HD resolution TV has barely settled, South Korea’s forerunner in flat panel TV, Samsung, promised to make them even more compelling with its new line of smart TV called SUHD TV. We are going to assume the ’S’ here stands for ‘Super’, which is Samsung’s way of saying it is a step above the ‘regular’. Right off the bat, Samsung has three series, namely JS9500, JS9000 and JS8500, with screen sizes ranging from 48-inch all the way to 88-inch that falls under the SUHD TV. So what the heck is SUHD? In basic layman language it simply promised “stunning contrast, striking brightness and spectacular color” and in a more techy speaks, it uses quantum-dot technology that allows Samsung to create displays to produce more colors (64 times more, to be precise) than standard LCD TVs, at a lower cost.
