The Top Five TVs of CES 2011
Another Consumer Electronics Show has come and gone and we’re left waiting patiently – or not so patiently – for all the new TV we saw at the show to finally be released.  Just what TVs are those?  We’re glad you asked.#5 - Sony XBR-55HX929The list starts off with one of the biggest names in TVs, Blu-ray players and just about everything else electronic to boot.  Sony brought plenty to the show, including the fantastic XBR-55HX929. As we've come to expect from high-end televisions, the 929 offers great performance while in 2D and in 3D.  It offers LED backlighting, integrated Wi-Fi and Bravia Internet Video, but its biggest features are those that aren't as obvious.One feature that I'm happy to see on the new line of Sony TVs is the inclusion of Corning Gorilla Glass.  Sony says there are benefits ...

Video Hits and Misses of CES 2011
It’s time to wrap up the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show with a look at what worked and what didn’t.  Find out how smart devices fared, what's become of Google TV and whether 2011 will finally be the year of the 3D TV.3D – HIT3D has been on the 'Miss' side of this list for the last two years, but I'm finally ready to say that it's here to stay.  Individual technologies have improved, the quality of the experience is better and prices just keep dropping.I’ve been a 3D skeptic ever since it started showing up at CES, but this year I’m starting to turn around.  Not just because the tech is getting better, but because there's just so much 3D around.  There's enough out there that it no longer feels like a niche product.  There are 3D games and movies ...

Samsung Roundtable – CES 2011
CES isn’t all massive booths and packed show floors – there are plenty of meetings going on behind-the-scenes.  I was lucky enough to get an invite to a roundtable conversation with a few Samsung VPs and a select group of press members. The panelists included bigwigs from across Samsung’s operation, as well as a moderator and a translator to help out with some of the trickier questions. Kevin Lee – Vice President, Smart TV PartnershipsBong-Ku Kang – Senior Vice President, Product Marketing GroupHyo-Gun Lee – Vice President Software Group R&D TeamJohn Revie – Senior Vice President Home EntertainmentThere was a good deal of traffic and nearly everyone was delayed in getting to the panel, so rather than bother with lengthy introductions, things got rolling with questions right off the bat.Q: Samsung has been using a new technology called PLS in ...

CES 2011 Press Conference Wrapup
The consumer electronics show kicked off as it always does – with press conferences from the major players, announcing new products, new initiatives, and a little bit of bragging about the last year’s accomplishments.It all started with LG, who had a very mixed event.  There were some cool announcements, but flops to go with each of them.  After the “we had a great 2010” part of the speech was over – that’s the way these things tend to begin – we got to hear a bit more about the massive 12 billion dollar investment that LG made in their research and development team.  It sounds like we can expect some big things in the near future. LG had a strong focus on “smart” products.  It’s a theme that they shared in common with Samsung.  Smart TVs, smart phones and even ...

CES 2011 Preview
The Consumer Electronics Show is just a couple days away, and there's plenty of excitement going into it.  It's a time for big announcements, exciting technologies and perhaps the part we all look forward to - new product launches. Every CES is different and every CES brings something new.  It's like Christmas day for the industry.  Each booth is like a present under the tree just waiting to be opened.  Sometimes you get exactly what you wanted, sometimes there's a surprise and sometimes you get reindeer socks from your weird aunt.The last few Consumer Electronics Shows have showcased 3D televisions, Blu-ray players and height channel audio, declaring each year to be the big one for 3D.  This CES is going to be even more 3D focused than the last few - it's time for that big push to see if ...
