TVs just keep getting bigger, with each company trumping the other over and over again.  The latest mega set is from Sharp, who has constructed a 90 inch LCD display that's equipped with local dimming LEDs and promises excellent performance, even in places with high amounts of ambient light.  That's essential, because the PN-R903 is made for use in commercial signing.

Atmos is one of the biggest things to hit theaters since 3D and unlike 3D which requires glasses and induces headaches, Atmos requires only that you go to an equipped theater to enjoy your film.  It takes the traditional surround sound that we've gotten used to and makes it even more specific, allowing for pinpoint sound and a more immersive experience.  If you want to get your Atmos fix, you can check out 'Life of Pi' or 'The Guardians,' both of which are out now. 

The list of theaters is below.

As it tends to be when a new technology hits, it’s a problem of the chicken and the egg.  People don’t want to buy 4K capable hardware when there’s no content for it, and companies don’t want to make Ultra HD content when no one has a UHD set.  Sony is in a fortunate place in that their company makes not only hardware, but content as well.  Their new XBR-84X900 reflects that, by including content with the TV itself.

Vudu and Netflix are two distinctly different services with distinctly different focuses.  Netflix offers quantity while Vudu focuses on quality, Netflix is more about disposable content while Vudu wants you to buy.  They’re also very different in that while Netflix started on the PC and eventually moved to the living room, Vudu has, since the beginning, been made for TVs.  Thankfully, that’s changing.

The folks at Netflix have been putting a lot of money into content acquisition in hopes of keeping old subscribers while gaining new ones, but it's not just other people's movies that they want on their service.  Recently Netflix has been putting money into original programming, and the first big exclusive is on its way.

Soundbars are a nice alternative to traditional speakers for rooms that just accommodate the usual setup, or where you prefer to have a nice clean look.  They're not completely hidden though.  Whether you wall-mount then or lay them on a stand, the speaker is going to be obvious.  The new Edge TV mount from Media Decor solves that nicely by including a soundbar right in the mount.

Ultra High Definition televisions are quickly on the way and the folks at Hisense are jumping on board with their own offerings.  There's nothing that truly sets the Hisense TVs apart from competitors in terms of feature set, but there are two considerations that may make Hisense a player worth keeping an eye on in the upcoming struggle for UHDTV dominance.
