Philips Goes Green With "Best Of CES" ECO TV


Each year CNET gives out its "Best Of CES" awards and this year's best TV of the show was the Philips ECO FlatTV (the 42PFL5603D). You might wonder how Philips pulled it off. After all, Philips isn't exactly the premier name in high-def televisions, and Panasonic's 150 inch behemoth as well as Sony and Samsung's OLED displays were a little more eye-catching. But "green" is in.

The Philips ECO TV, part of the company's Green Flagship product line, has been independently certified as being up to 10% more efficient than other LCD's its size. At 42 inches, with 1080p resolution, the ECO TV saves energy by regulating the use of its backlight. It has a built-in sensor that actually measures the rooms ambient lighting, adjusting the amount of light emitted from the backlight, not only saving energy but resulting in a better picture on the screen. Definitely the best of/for both worlds!

Expect the ECO TV to hit shelves in March for $1399.

Samsung Plans To Produce 4000x2000 Pixel LCD TV's


Could we be seeing LCD TV's boasting resolutions of up to 4000x2000 pixels in our living rooms in the near future? An article in the New York Times quoted Samsung's American VP for LCD sales as saying that "LCD sets are getting bigger, and increasing in resolution and quality, leading to a market similar to computers" and "the next wave of resolution will be 8-times the resolution of HD". That could be a hint that Samsung plans to start mass producing 4000x2000 pixel displays in the near future. This would require an entirely new manufacturing plant and Samsung is apparently talking "about the idea with potential customers". Maybe "near future" is an overly optimistic prediction. Given it takes about 18 months to get a new plant up and running, we give it at least 3 years to happen.
