AV Education on RHT The Pros and Cons of LCD TVs Written by Michael Levy Introduction I remember the first time I saw “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Of all of the wonders predicted in Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece, I was most taken by the flat screen TV displays. In one scene, the displays are like pads on the table. The LCD monitors that now come with most computers come closest to looking like them. LCD displays have quickly become the reference for personal computing, but they have not expanded in size enough to compete with plasma for home entertainment. While plasma is well ahead in this race, many think LCD displays will be first across the finish line when one format dominates. As the technology advances and LCD conquers its limitations its strengths give it greater viability.

AV Education on RHT The Pros and Cons of Plasma TVs Written by Michael Levy Introduction Audio/video product designers tend to be dreamers. When I was young, I would dream of a George Jetson-inspired day when you could just hang a picture on the wall and view a bright, clear, vivid moving image. Plasma TV has made that seemingly impossible dream real. Believe it or not, plasma screen technology goes back to the ‘60s. It took advancements in chip design and miniaturization through the decades to make it commercially feasible. Growing up in that era, I could daydream of the concept, but somewhere in the back of my mind, I doubted it could really make it to the walls of my home. Now, people go every day to vendors ranging from CostCo to the best custom home theater designers to get a sexy, thin plasma-beaming HDTV in their living rooms. Walking through the vast hallways of ...

How and Why To Build a Hush Box For Your Projector By Jerry Del Colliano February 2004 As long as video projectors have been in high-performance A/V systems, fan noise has been an unwanted byproduct. In my early 20s, while working at Cello Music and Film Los Angeles, Mark Levinson and the Cello design team rigged a way to change the fan of the “Cello” (rebadged Ampro) eight- and nine-inch CRT projectors that we sold. While this ultimately became a service problem for Cello dealers, the reduced fan noise on the projectors was warmly received by our well-heeled client base. Today, nearly 10 years after my days of designing and selling systems at Cello, digital projectors are fast becoming the king of the home video hill. While ultra-expensive CRT projectors still produce the absolute best video image, their cost, size, weight, need for service and pathetic resale values make the brighter, smaller and less expensive digital ...

title: How To Pick A Video Screen For Digital Projectors category: Feature Article review date: April 2002 reviewed by: Jerry Del Colliano How To Pick A Video Screen For Digital Projectors Some of the most exciting advances being made in the world of audio/video involve the new, smaller, lower-priced projectors, especially fixed-pixel digital devices such as DLP and D-ILA video projectors. For ultimate picture quality, the traditional CRT projectors, especially the most expensive nine-inch CRT projectors, are still the best in absolute terms. In more real-world applications, D-ILA and DLP projectors offer the ability to reproduce a far larger and far brighter picture by means of a less expensive, physically smaller projector that needs very little maintenance. With all of these advantages, there are still issues that you need to consider in order to get the biggest and best picture for your video setup.

Introduction On June 16, 1999 Digital Video Express, LP announced that Divx would no longer be selling players or adding accounts to their service. Existing Divx owners would still be able to play Divx discs through June 30, 2001 and DVDs for the life of their players. Divx will provide $100.00 cash rebates to all consumers who purchased Divx-enhanced players prior to June 19, 1999. This rebate is offered to offset the higher price associated between the open DVD format and the Divx-enhanced players. The announcement also went on to say that "...all Divx discs, including those previously purchased by consumers and those remaining in retailer inventories, can be viewed on registered players anytime between now and June 30, 2001. Subsequent viewings will also be available during that period." Unfortunately, "Divx Silver", which allows for unlimited viewing will not be available during ...
