Projectiondesign's F35 WQXGA projector makes the dream of a home drive-in a possibility

Projectors have come a long way in the last decade, making true home theaters a reality for many cinema buffs. But why not think a little bigger and build your own drive-in? With Projectiondesign’s F35 WQXGA projector you can do just that. With its ability to project a 2560 x 1600 pixel resolution image measuring up to a whopping 65 feet (19.8m) wide it will make the neighbor’s home theater efforts look decidedly lacking.  Read More

Atlona's wireless A/V streamer offers a range of connections and HDTV support

Few would doubt that the ability to stream media wirelessly around the home will, in one form or another, be fundamental to the future of home entertainment. It would seem strange then, that a product apparently versatile enough to wirelessly send video and audio from a PC to an HDTV hasn’t received more support, and the new Atlona PC to Computer Monitor/HDTV Wireless adapter is one of few on the market designed for this purpose.  Read More

The Philips Wireless HDTV Link replaces cables for wireless viewing up to 1080p

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.  Read More

JVC's entry into the world of pocket camcorder, the 1080p HD Picsio GC-FM1

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.

The diminutive lines of the WDTV Live means it fits in nicely with modern home cinema setu...

Despite being relatively late to bat in the media streamer/jukebox market, Western Digital came up with a gem of a product last year with the WD TV, which featured in our recent take on Media Streamers. This slimline, stylish device was designed to attach to a TV and play back music, photo and video files from connected storage, but lacked the streaming capabilities and HD support of more versatile (and expensive) rivals. Buoyed by the success of the WD TV, Western Digital is back with the WD TV Live, which addresses the above issues by offering full-HD, 1080p playback via an HDMI 1.3 port, and the ability to stream files across a wired or wireless network.  Read More
