Sony's Bravia V4000 LCD TV Series Gets European Launch

1209376199110.jpgSony's Bravia V4000 LCD TV Series just got its European launch, initially in 40-, 46-, and 52-inch screen sizes with more sizes available later this year. All featuring 1080p resolution, Bravia Engine 2, and 33000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and the company's minimalist Draw The Line design concept, the V4000 series doesn't boast anything incredibly eye-catching but looks to be a great TV. The sets also feature 24p True Cinema which displays Blu-ray discs and other theater format content at the correct speeds allowing better color and audio reproduction as well as Bravia Sync for the almost ubiquitous one remote home theater control. Being a European series, the V4000 has an integrated DVB-C/DVB-T tuner and has a trio of HDMI ports. We're waiting on exact pricing and availability dates.

Get Your Tan On With A 102 Inch Suntronic Weatherproof LCD TV

suntronic_380x284.jpgOne downside of being a tech geek, whether it be a home theater obsessive, gamer, or computer nerd is the lack of a tan in the summer time. Sitting inside in front of the HDTV doesn't get you much sunlight obviously, but what if you could move the TV outside. That's exactly what Suntronic's doing with its GS LCD line, featuring four screen sizes between 46 and 102 inches, all with All Weather and sunlight-readable LCD technology. The Suntronic LCD TV's, available through iTech Company in the United States, can operate in temperatures ranging from -40 degrees to +50 degrees Celsius, are IP65 waterproof, and have both an integrated heater and air conditioner. Of course, a tan might not be worth the low to mid five figure prices you'll pay for these models. Intended for commercial usage, you'd probably be better off staying inside and trying a spray-on tan!

Oops, Our Mistake! That 82-Inch Samsung Is An LCD Not An OLED!

080518_p10_samsung(2).jpgI thought it was a little strange when I was writing an 82-inch OLED panel had an LED backlight, but writing in the middle of the night makes you do funny things. That 82-inch Samsung panel we told you about yesterday is actually a QuadHD LCD panel boasting 4 times the resolution of today's 1080p TV's. That works out to 3840x2160 pixels or 2160p resolution. Oh yes, and don't forget about that 120 Hz refresh rate.

Thanks Ron!

HDTV Buyers Flocking To Buy 32-Inch LCD's

LE-32S81B-32-inch-LCD-TV_1_4.jpgWhile a decrease in LCD panel demand contributed to 1.6% decrease in shipments from March, such market behavior is normal for this time of the year and still represents a 29.7% year-over-year growth. Some of these numbers can be attributed to LCD computer monitors, but when it comes to LCD TV's, 32-inch models seems to be seeing the most popularity. Month to month shipments decreased 2.9% overall and 40-inch and larger panel shipments remain flat, but 32-inch panels accounted for full 40% of all LCD TV panel shipments. Why the growing trend in smaller HDTV sales? Most likely global economic concerns are causing consumers to cut back on spending, but it would seem a 32-inch flat panel TV would still represent a big dollar buy. But then again, isn't an HDTV becoming a necessity these days?

Pioneer 46-Inch LCD TV's Coming This Year

thumb_230_5A.jpgA couple of days back when Pioneer announced their plasma biz restructuring plans, the company stated that they would be manufacturing LCD TV's in partnership with Sharp. We have a few more details now. The company plans to release 40-inch class LCD TV's within 2008, most likely in 46-inch variety, with fiscal 2008 with the help of parts from Sharp. Sharp's most efficient production happens to occur with 46-inch LCD TV manufacturing, likely contributing to the choice of size by Pioneer.

Pioneer still hasn't decided what the future of its 40-inch class of plasma sets is, but judging by the financial hit the company took on account of plasma production in the past year, the future doesn't look particularly bright. The first Pioneer/Sharp LCD TV's will be released August 2008 with forecasting to have 60000 sets shipped by March 2009, then next year Pioneer plans to acquire LCD panels from Sharp and develop a new LCD TV line with their own proprietary technologies. Hopefully that means some kind of KURO LCD hybrid, definitely something to look forward to.
