Sony’s plan for online television and TV brackets

November 24, 2011
Posted in TV industry news — Written by Perry

Japanese electronics firm Sony has revealed it is currently looking at how it can change the way people watch television. Its bold new move is aimed at competing with American satellite and cable companies for a share of the market.

While this news might not affect those in the UK just yet, it remains to be seen how this will change the TV-viewing landscape.

Sony is not working on technologies to replace the current mode of watching television, so those with devices mounted on TV brackets needn’t worry about that as this is all to do with the services offered to consumers.

They are hoping to provide TV channels direct to their PlayStation 3 video game consoles as well as the Blu-ray players made by the firm. The television sets are also a target for this new internet TV service which will be available to those consumers who purchase its products.

The fact that over 18 million American homes contain their mid and high-end TVs and PS3 consoles which are all internet-enabled devices means that by adding these TV channels to their output there is already a market out there.

At the moment Sony already provides a film rental service, so this would take things to a whole new level.

A number of the leading US broadcasters such as News Corporation (owner of Fox), Discovery Communications and NBC Universal have already been approached by the company to produce the content for these channels.

We’ll just have to wait and see what unfolds from these talks and whether cable and satellite TV will indeed soon be welcoming a new competitor to the fold.

Samsung and LG leading way in flat panel TVs for TV brackets

Posted in TV industry news — Written by Perry

It has been reported this week that the two Korean electronics giants LG and Samsung have overtaken their Japanese rivals in terms of global flat-panel TV sales for the third quarter of 2011.

There is always fierce competition between the leading brands in consumer electronics and so the results from market research company DisplaySearch putting Samsung and LG ahead of rivals to take the number one and number two spots respectively serves as a blow to the likes of Panasonic and Sony.

When it comes to television making there is always going to be newer and better models being released all the time. It looks like LG and Samsung may have stolen a march for the time being, but in the lead up to Christmas it can all change.

During the period in question, Samsung are said to have a 19 per cent share of flat screen TV units sold, with LG taking 12 per cent of the overall market.

According to senior analyst at HMC Securities, Noh Geun-chang, the current results can be put down to a number of contributing factors. He said:

“Because the Japanese TV set makers, such as Sony and Panasonic, are going through restructuring, the Korean companies will be likely to widen their share in the global market in terms of sales figures.”

When looking to get a TV to mount on the wall using TV brackets this Christmas, you may wish to consider the top selling models from the big brands such as LG and Samsung.

With the recent news that the twenty-third James Bond film has finally been given the green light, after more than a year of turmoil for MGM, it looks like ‘Skyfall’ as it has been named is going to be another hit for the franchise.

Daniel Craig is the modern-day Bond and this is his third time in the role of the iconic spy, following in the footsteps of greats like Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

There are many fans of this British MI6 agent who can’t wait to see the movie on the big screen and will also be first in line when it finally gets its release on Blue-ray and DVD.

So if you are one of those James Bond fanatics who owns the entire DVD collection of films made so far, you should make the most of these movies in full high definition by watching them on Blu-ray.

When you link a Blu-ray player to an LCD or plasma TV, you can enjoy all the action of these thrilling movies almost as if you were seeing them in the cinema. With the latest home cinema systems you can see all the James Bond classics upscaled to the HD format and ready to be watched as they should.

In order to create the perfect setting to do this, you need to mount your television onto the wall using TV brackets as they allow you to tilt and turn your display to the right angle so you can enjoy the experience to the max.

For those who follow the England Football Team and who don’t have access to premium sports channels, it is sometimes quite difficult to get to see their matches these days.

However, the upcoming friendly match versus Spain which is taking place this coming weekend is different as it is being shown live on ITV1, so anyone with a Freeview box can enjoy what promises to be an exciting spectacle.

And if you also have a television that is able to present images in high definition this makes it all the better as ITV1 HD makes the picture so much brighter and better quality.

Even if you do have access to Sky or Virgin Media, you can still enjoy the fact that whatever channel is showing the national team’s games, you will be able to watch it in the comfort of your own home – as long as you have subscribed to the necessary sports channels.

Being able to see these games at home means you don’t have to get in the car and trek down to your local pub which may be jam packed come match day. Instead, you can simply position the screen so everyone in the room can get a good angle and get ready to see if England has a chance against their more skilful opposition.

Having a TV mounted on TV wall brackets makes all the difference as you can place your screen where it gives people the maximum amount of enjoyment and can just sit back, relax and watch the England game.

For those who have considered relenting and getting a set-top box for satellite television to replace your old Freeview box your timing could not have been better. Sky is always offering deals anyway to entice new customers, but with the latest technology included within these high storage units, you are buying one of the world’s hottest gadgets at the moment.

These Sky Plus HD 3D boxes may sound complicated, but you will soon get the hang of being able to record one programme while being able to watch another. You can even pause live TV and rewind a show as well.

The world of Sky TV has just got a lot more interesting as their content is now offered in 3D as well as in full high definition. Many stations are coming round to the idea that people want to enjoy three-dimensional entertainment in their living rooms, so more and more 3D channels are being added all the time.

If you are someone who is into sport then the broadcaster’s first dedicated 3D channel would be right up your street. Every week there are live Premier League football matches to watch, while many films are now offered in 3D.

The unit itself can hold 1TB of storage which equates to around 240 hours of hi-def programming or 740 hours of standard content.

To look after your new Sky box you can choose to have it mounted on the wall using one of the latest brackets for set-top boxes. This means it can be housed just below your television.

LG announces LW7700 and LW9500 made using nanotechnology

December 22, 2010
Posted in TV industry news — Written by Nathan

LG has recently release its flagship 3D enabled LED TVs LW7700 and LW9500 that are made using nanotechnology. The latest backlighting technology designed by LG offers benefits of both ‘locally dimmed’ and ‘edge’ based backlighting in one package.

When LED TVs were initially introduced, two variations were available. The edge based implementation of LED TVs with a range of LED lights around the frame offers a classy look to these ultra slim screens. However, it could not provide accurate control of ‘full array’ or ‘locally dimmed’ TVs.

With the introduction of the LW7700 and LW9500, LG now hopes that their customers will not need to decide between substance over style and vice versa. According to LG, the latest nanotechnology offers the benefit of two different LED TV technologies in one package.

A complete range of LEDs are used for illuminating an ultra-slim film printed with a special pattern, thus offering more light distribution across the screen. Another new technology, Micro Pixel Control, offers individual control over each LED, thus offering higher contrast and deeper blacks.

The LW7700 and LW9500 TVs will come in different dimensions including 60in, 55in and 47in. While the LW9500 will benefit from 400Hz processing, the LW7700 will be a 200Hz version.

If you are getting an LED TV, do remember to opt for the right TV bracket to support and secure it.

Some common misconceptions associated with plasma TVs

November 17, 2010
Posted in TV industry news — Written by Nathan

Purchasing a plasma television five years ago was quite rare. However, as the plasma technology advanced, the prices went lower. Most people can now afford this beautiful TV set and enjoy its features.

While plasma TVs have gone from strength to strength in the past couple of years, there are still some misconceptions out there. Three of the most common myths are mentioned below:

Burn-ins are common in plasma TVs

While burn-in used to be a common problem in older plasma TVs, the modern day plasma television sets are completely devoid of this issue. The technology used in plasma televisions have advanced to such an extent that you will be need to actually adjust the brightness settings through the pixel cells to burn an image on your screen. Also, burn-in is commonly associated with image retention that disappears within a few moments.

The value for money is low as they have a short life

The ability of plasma television sets to produce bright imagery is what makes them popular. However, people think this ability is lost within 6-8 months of purchase. This is simply not true. Modern day plasma televisions have a half-life of 70,000 viewing hours. This is equivalent to an individual watching TV for 8 continuous years without switching it off. Mounting these TV sets on brackets will ensure its safety and further enhance viewing pleasure, along with safety.

Screen glare and reflection affects the picture quality of plasma TVs

Again, this might be true for older plasma television sets. Modern day plasma TVs use glare resistant coating on the glass that makes up the outer part of the display screen. This is responsible in reducing the glare to an extent where you can comfortably watch your favourite television show or sport. Using plasma TV brackets can also be of great help to reduce the glare.

Sony’s two new 3D enabled TVs launched

August 26, 2010
Posted in TV industry news — Written by Tina

Sony has recently announced the specifications of their new 3D enabled LED TVs, the NX813 and NX713. Both these models are slated to release in late 2010. For the extra dimensional experience, both Full HD screens need a 3D sync transmitter along with 3D glasses. These TVs are excellent options for consumers who are looking forward to future proof their TV screens and possibly watch 3D in the later date.

Featuring the ‘Monolithic’ design of Sony, both screens restore the understated elegance that Sony does quite well. Both these models also get a wireless connectivity to access ‘Bravia Internet Video’, Sony’s online entertainment portal.

Technology used in Sony’s 3D enabled TV

Both NX813 and NX713 3D enabled TV screens from Sony feature a more stylish ‘Edge’ based implementation of the LED technology. While the NX713 features 100Hz Motion Flow implementation, the NX813 gets a 200Hz implementation.

With a combination of high end features of a classic style, Sony is hoping to give a competition to Samsung and Panasonic’s 3D TV sales. While Samsung have cornered the television market with their ultra slim offerings, Panasonic has produced what it is generally known as the best 3D TV presently available in the TX-P50VT20.

If you are planning to get a new flat panel TV for your home, you should also consider getting a TV bracket to firmly secure it on a wall.

LG planning to introduce TV with Google TV built-in

July 24, 2010
Posted in TV industry news — Written by Perry

LG, the Korean electronics giant, is planning to add Google’s VoD service on some of its upcoming TVs. However, LG has not fully committed to Google’s VoD initiative. LG has recently introduced its ‘Netcast’ service and related app store for flat screen TVs.

While there were a lot of rumours about Google TV, it has now become official. Based on Google’s Android operating platform and running on the Chrome browser, TV viewers or web surfers will be able to navigate through websites or TV channels on their TV screen with the convenience of DVR (digital video recording). Merging the web and TV into one flawless product has been one of the major goals of the big manufacturers.

Innovative features of Google TV

Google is aiming to completely change the TV viewing experience by creating a unique product that bears little resemblance to the present crop of ‘widget’ based internet enabled television sets. Some innovative features that Google TV boasts are as follows:

Web browsing

With Google’s integrated ‘Chrome’ browser, Google TV will provide a true and flawless web browsing experience similar to what your PC offers.

Controlled by an Android phone

Android based devices will feature a voice search option which will enable you to locate your favourite programme by simply speaking into your Android phone.

Record videos in HD

Google’s set-top box featuring Intel’s CE4100 is capable of decoding twin 1080p video streams. This allows you to record one programme while watching another.

Other features of Google TV include Mobile TV, Video Conferencing, Android Apps along with a combination of TV and Search technology.
