Going to the movies is an essential experience. It's a standard date night, a window into different worlds and experiences, and a great way to kill a few hours. Sadly, for folks with hearing disabilities, there just hasn't been a great way to enjoy films – until now.
It seems like we've been waiting forever for OLED TVs and more than a few folks have given up hope. Turns out we've reason to get excited again, as LG is launching a 55" OLED television this May. Even better – it's not ridiculously expensive. It's not as cheap as a similarly outfitted LCD or plasma, but at $7,900 quite a few early adapters should be able to drop the dime on this one.
It's unfortunate, but there are places where you can't lug your gorgeous TV or projector. On a plane, for example. That tiny seat mounted into the chair in front of you is all you have to watch, and the selection is typically pretty sad. Epson's new BT-100 aims to change that. It's a wearable personal media device that gives you an 80 inch virtual screen for your own enjoyment.
Wireless HDMI extenders are incredibly cool, but they’re a bit lacking if you’re planning to use them to get video to every room in your house. Typically, an extender will have one input, one output, and that’s it. Atlona’s LinkCastAV isn’t typical. With the purchase of additional wireless receivers, you can stream to up to five devices.
Walmart isn’t typically a company we talk about here on AV Rev, but this is a special occasion. The massive retailer has just announced a program that’s going to have a huge impact on digital distribution. Bring a DVD or Blu-ray into the store, hand it over to the person at the photo counter, pay a few bucks and bam – you’ll get Vudu copies of all your movies.
