3DTV, The Early Adopter Who Ignores Standards E-mail
Blog
Sunday, 23 May 2010

250_3d_glasses.jpgCongratulations!   You are an early adopter!   You are the first one on the block with a Samsung 3DTV!  Go show that IPAD owner what cool really means, right?   But that cool neighbor is also an early adopter and has a 3DTV as well!   However, you had yours first, so you win the arms race and his is a Panasonic, so phooey. 

You guys are buds so you want to have a 3D party to see whose  3DTV is better.

AN EXAMPLE OF WHY SHARING CALIBRATION SETTINGS FOR COLOR MANAGEMENT AND GRAYSCALE DOES NOT WORK E-mail
Blog
Sunday, 23 May 2010

tone-grey.jpgI recently did a professional calibration for a client of mine in New Jersey who had an LG 55LH90 direct array LED LCD panel. Prior to my arrival, he had been using the settings for grayscale and CMS (Color Management System) from a post on the AVS Forum.  

It is one thing to share User Menu settings as we do on this site and quite another to share all the settings for Color Space and grayscale. Grayscale and CMS settings rarely translate from one system to the next with any degree of accuracy. Here is a perfect example illustrated by the CalMan Pro PDF file that shows the pre-calibration data on the left side of the page from the settings my client found on the AVS Forum, and, on the right side, the post-calibration settings with my calibration results.

Panasonic D and U Series LCDs. Is Panasonic going to be able to compete? E-mail
Blog
Saturday, 22 May 2010

panasonictc-l42d2.jpg Panasonic is officially back in the LCD market with their D LED series and their U series LCD series.   But was Panasonic ever really IN the LCD market?  I am expecting very little from Panasonic from their LCDs.   Panasonic struggled producing quality LCDs in the past simply because they were so deeply invested in plasma technology.   All is not lost though.  Panasonic plasma technology still produces the best line of HDTVs when picture quality and value are the main focus.  Let us see how the D and U series LCDs produce images.   We will be back in the near future with the results as we come across them in the field.   My hopes are not too high at this point  (IPOD connectivity still exists - snore).   I hope Panasonic proves us all wrong.

Blu Ray? HDTV with Wifi? 3DTV? All of these decisions. Which one is best? All? E-mail

Saturday, 22 May 2010

samsung_medialive_1.jpgFor the past five years we have seen a bit of a lull within the general HDTV space.  Five years ago, plasmas dominated for large screen and picture quality enthusiasts.   LCDs started to make head way as prices started to fall and the Best Buys of the world started to promote LCDs over plasmas.   About two years ago, OLED started to show its head, and it looked quite promising.   However, this fizzled out (for now) and we are forced to settle for medicore edge lit LCDs.   Thin is in.  Is thin ever out?

Google TV? What happens to picture quality on our HDTVs? E-mail
Blog
Friday, 21 May 2010

I have to be honest.  I am a bit concerned.   As technologies converge, (in this case TV and the Internet), the results are not always positive.  However, it can be done right.  Blackberry and Palm started the trend on the hand held devices which was a win.   Email, web, and a phone all in one place.   Once they figured out extended battery life, we were off to the races.  Google recently announced Google TV.  Google TV would allow viewers to access Internet content on their televisions in addition to traditional broadcast and cable programming. Google wants to own the desktop and now wants to own the set top box as well.  Aside from having many opponents, is this a good move for overall picture quality?

3dtvimagehelicopter.jpgBy Joel Silver

#1 - 3D has hit the buying public's sweet spot - all our clients want it - awesome!

#2 - Lack of content in volume is not an issue - HD launched with boring, but beautiful demo loops, there will be enough 3D in 2010 - I already won bets on that!

#3 - 3D sports will rock - kudos to Panasonic for stunning Beijing Olympics shots.

#4 - 3D's multiple methodology is the best geek fest ever, read these and be humbled, but please add super positive credit to HDMI for putting 1.4a together and making all these actually work - without users having to learn how to pick one:
