Highlights from the 2014 LA Auto Show

LED TV

The Philips 55PUS7809 is an ultra-slim smart 4K UHD LED TV with Ambilight technology (Phot...

For all this year's noise about the dawn of 4K TV, the consumer market is still very much in its infancy. As such, it can be difficult to know what to look for when considering a purchase. With its flagship 55PUS7809, Philips is hoping factors such as HD upscaling, Ambilight and price will help it to stand out from the crowd.  Read More

TCL's new 4K LED TV has a price tag just under $1,000

Ultra high definition televisions are still growing slowly in the market. Generally, they are priced outside of the affordable range for most consumers, but TCL is looking to change that with the introduction of its 50-inch (127-cm) LED 4K Ultra HD TV at a US$999 price point.  Read More

The C SEED 201 outdoor LED television

For those who go in for outdoor television viewing with a big dash of ostentation, Porsche Design Studio of Zell am See, Austria offers the C SEED 201 LED television. This 201-inch (5.11 m) 16:9 LED behemoth isn't just enormous, it also rises out of the ground like something out of a Bond film and unfolds itself in less than 30 seconds.  Read More

Sharp's AQUOS LC-90LE745U is the world's largest LED TV with a 90-inch screen size

It might not be as big as the 152-inch plasma TV Panasonic has been parading around, but Sharp is claiming the title of the world’s biggest LED TV with the launch of the 90-inch AQUOS LC-90LE745U. Measuring nearly four feet (1.2 m) tall and six feet (1.8 m) across, you’ll need a fair chunk of free space to place this monster. Unfortunately, with a retail price of US$10,999.99, you’ll also need some pretty deep pockets.  Read More

Sony's new Crystal LED Display prototype produces an image using a layer millions of LEDs

While OLED may have staked a claim as the next generation display technology to beat, Sony has chosen CES 2012 to unveil a new display technology called “Crystal LED.” Instead of an LED or CCFL backlight shining through an LCD layer to produce an image, the Crystal LED display technology is a true LED TV that uses a layer of tiny self-emitting LEDs to directly produce the image – think of it like a high resolution shrunk down JumboTron like those found at sporting stadiums.  Read More

Toshiba's new flagship 55ZL1 HDTV powered by a new CEVO-ENGINE

Toshiba has announced details and a release date for its new flagship 55ZL1 HDTV. The new model will be the first to be powered by a new CEVO-ENGINE, which replaces the company's Cell-powered models. The CEVO-ENGINE is essentially a stack of Cell multicore processors in the form of a seven-core processing unit that provides the processing grunt for such features as 2D to 3D conversion, 3D depth control, HDD video recording, Auto Calibration, and a face recognition feature that will switch to your personal settings after identifying you using the 55ZL1's integrated camera.  Read More

Philips new Cinema 21:9 Gold Series LED TV

Anyone who thought making the switch from their old 4:3 analogue TV to a 16:9 widescreen digital model would mean the end of unsightly black bars at the top and bottom of the picture will likely have discovered otherwise – particularly if they also picked up a Blu-ray player along with the new TV. With most movies filmed in the wider 2.35:1 or 2.40:1 and many of these now available on Blu-ray, cinephiles are once again faced with the choice of viewing the entire image with black bars, or zooming or stretching the image so it fills the entire screen. The new Cinema 21:9 Gold Series LED TV from Philips solves this dilemma with its 21:9 aspect ratio allowing widescreen movies to be displayed in all their glory.  Read More

DynamicEdge LED Backlighting with local dimming is employed for improved contrast while Sony’s Motionflow PRO 240Hz Technology is on board to ensure smooth motion for fast moving images.  Read More
