Olive, renowned maker of audiophile products including the Opus 4
, has served up another addition to its impressive line of music servers with the Olive 4 HD, which the company says can play back your music at 250 times the resolution of CDs!
It seems that these days one tuner just isn't enough in a DVR. While not as huge as Sony’s Type X
digital recorder with seven tuners and 1TB of recording space, the Moxi HD DVR has three turners (which is one better than most other PVRs, including the TiVo
). This means you can record two shows and watch another, or, be prepared for that very rare night on TV when there are three shows worth recording simultaneously. Hey, you can even play back a fourth show and watch that while all that recording is going on in the background. And there’s no monthly or lifetime service fees with Moxi units.
has revamped its LaCinema Classic multimedia hard drive to be a media player with up 2TB internal storage, optional 802.11n Wi-Fi and a built-in DLNA server that lets users browse, play and share HD 1080p media collections from anywhere in the home, directly on an HDTV.
If you think that full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution TV
is looking a little too low-res for your liking, then Epson has developed a new LCD projector panel that should satisfy your desire for higher detail. The company's new high-temperature polysilicon (HTPS) TFT LCD panel for its 3LCD projectors is the world’s first 4K-compatible panel supporting resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 pixels.
With the development of the ZMS-08 system on a chip, ZiiLabs is aiming to bring high performance media processing to low power devices. As well as allowing full Blu-ray quality 1080p video playback, the chip supports simultaneous HD encode and decode, 3D and 2D image processing and advanced audio.
Spurred on by the release of Windows 7, the number of screens on the market offering the benefits of multi-touch functionality has jumped significantly in recent times. Acer
have released multi-touch notebooks and we've also seen multi-touch creep into the desktop
and all-in-one PC
arenas. Dell has had multi-touch PCs
in its sights for a while and recently released the rugged Latitude multi-touch tablet
. Now there's the Dell SX2210T – a 21.5 inch, 16:9 widescreen multi-touch monitor with full HD and integrated webcam.
Black may not be the new black in the world of digital SLR cameras. Last month Pentax announced its intention to add a splash of color by offering its new K-x camera in white, red and blue as well as black. Now the company has announced a very colorful limited edition K-x based on the design of the popular Korejanai robot.
The response to the release of Windows 7
has been generally very positive, bringing Microsoft some much needed respite from the issues that plagued Vista over the last few years. One of the more interesting facets of the new OS is the inclusion of touchscreen support, which seems to have been of particular interest to Acer, which recently released its first touchscreen notebook
and has followed up with a touchscreen All-in-one PC - the Aspire Z5610-U9072.
Philips' Wireless HDTV Link (SWW1800/27) replaces the cables that connect the HD cable set-top box, HD satellite receiver, Blu-ray player or gaming console to a HDTV and delivers up to 1080p picture quality at a range of 75 feet. This solution should appeal to viewers who have suffered from a lack of flexibility with their set-ups because of unsightly or too short cables.
With the release of its first pocket camcorder, the Picsio GC-FM1, JVC is no doubt hoping to chip away some of the success enjoyed by the Flip family. On paper JVC's effort appears to be a powerful little device - it produces full 1080p HD video, has 4x digital zoom and an 8Mp still camera.
