LG Announces Details Regarding First 1080p LCD With Wi-Fi

lg52lg71.jpg

LG decided to tease TVSnob's everywhere with a few details about it's new 52" 52LG71 LCD TV. The full HD box is the first 1080p set to utilize Wi-Fi. Via an 802.11 link, the LG pulls in HD content via a local wireless network meaning the TV doesn't need any separated media center or extenders to function. The company was pretty mum regarding details other than that, but it's expected that the panel will feature a 120Hz refresh rate and other state-of-the-art LG technologies. The 52LG71 will most likely be officially unveiled at the 2008 Consumer Electronic's Show in January.

Camera Giant Polaroid To Release a 20 Inch LCD TV

image_071101.jpg

Polaroid Japan, of camera fame, is set to sell a 20 inch LCD HDTV, the FLJ - 2036B, featuring HDMI, analog and digital tuners, and a 1366x728 pixel resolution. It also features a 700:1 contrast ratio, 16:9 aspect ratio, a panel response rate of 8 ms and a horribly ugly body design. Polaroid thinks it looks nice though, claiming owners will have the "luxury of a black body". Whatever that means, but I did have the Polaroid Japan site translated from Japanese! One upside of the FLJ-2036B is the price: the equivalent of $435 US. Slated for release early this month, expect it to be sold solely in Japan.

Samsung LCD TV Prices To Drop With New Discovery?

soda-lime_display.png

Samsung announced yesterday that they have discovered how to make LCD panels from ordinary glass plates, dramatically slashing the cost of production. The big question for consumers is whether this cost-savings will translate into price reductions on Samsung LCD HDTV's.

LCD's are usually made with non-alkaline glass that is resistant to the high temperatures and chemicals used in the production process. The new discovery uses soda-lime glass and a much lower temperature meaning less risk of color change. This is the reasoning behind the use of high quality glass in the current production process.

Research company DisplaySearch estimates that the new production process would lower the average price of a 32 inch LCD display by 6%, not a huge difference in the consumer's pocket but definitely a huge competitive advantage for Samsung. The process won't be ready for use in mass production for 4-5 years, by which time OLED displays will play an important role in the HDTV market and offer a better picture quality, so it remains to see whether this is a big discovery or not.

Sharp To Release Hybrid LCD Sets: The Aquos P Series

sharp02.jpg

Sharp will be releasing the Aquos P hybrid LCD series November 22 in Japan. The hybrids are designed to either be used for high-def television viewing or as a computer monitor. To be released in 22", 26" and 32" sets, all three sizes feature full 1080p HD resolution through either DVI, VGA, or one of the two available HDMI inputs. An interesting feature is the picture-in-picture mode which lets the user keep tabs on a TV show while using the the computer! One difference between the models is the contrast ratio which varies from 1200:1 to 2000:1 from the smallest to largest set respectively. This is definitely a product I could use. Sit and blog while watching the newest CSI episode...that's the life!
