Hannspree Time Square LCD Tells Time, Temperature, and Humidity


This post might be better for our sister site Weather Snob, but if you're looking for an LCD TV with a built-in clock, thermometer and hygrometer, whose dials swing open to reveal speakers, then look no further young shopper.

There's a four-in-one A/V connection (Composite, S-Video, Audio Input and Headphone Jack) and remote control. Maybe this is the perfect TV for the weather obsessed or someone who wants both analog and digital devices living in harmony.

MirrorTV - A Computer And HDTV on Your Wall


Mirror Media has been manufacturing mirrors that also function as TVs for some time now, and this time the company has taken one step further by combining its previous efforts with a built-in computer. The MirrorTV can be combined with a built-in fully compatible multimedia computer, so you can access web or email, run PowerPoint presentations and corporate videos and store and play MP3 audio or MPEG video files. It can be controlled or updated via the internet, WAN or intranet and with an integrated wireless LAN it doesn't even need to be plugged in.

We wish it was a mac and not a windows computer, but if you need to you can always buy one of their older sets and hook it up to your Mac Mini.

Philips Aurea, the Luxury Ambilight for TV Snobs

949665224 658302060C O

We love the Philips Ambilight technology and finally they have pushed it to the extreme. The new Aurea televisions are a more aggressive take on ambient television lighting. Fully LED back-lit, the Aureas will actually glow through the case border, creating a dynamic frame effect. Also they've improved the sound to minimize visible speaker components - the Aurea uses 26 tiny drivers as opposed to larger speakers. The new Philips Ambilight sets offer 1080p resolution with 8000:1 dynamic contrast and increased refresh rates. The 42" 42PFL9900D will cost nearly $7000 bucks when it's released in September. Can't wait to see them and we can't wait to light up our TV viewing in style.

Samsung Releases a 40" LCD TV with LED Backlight Technology

One of the downsides to LCD TVs (or any flat panel for that matter) has to be that unless you're sitting directly in front of the TV, you may experience some screen "darkness". Of course we're seeing more manufacturers trying to solve that problem by adding backlights to LCDs. Samsung has just introduced a 40" LED Backlit TV and according to the press release:

Samsung announced the release of a 40" LCD TV with high powered LED Backlight technology, which received Europe's prestigious "Innovation Award" from the EISA (European Image and Sound Association) for its superb features including LED light source, 146% wide colour gamut and industry leading contrast ratio (10,000:1).

At the same time, 40" and 46" LCD models that support full HD resolution (1920x1080p) - double the previous best HD performance (1366x768, 1080i) - and provide high contrast (6000:1) are also introduced.

The new 40" with LED light source realises far richer colour reproduction, based on a wide colour gamut that is 46% improved from previous models and enables unprecedented sound volume. High Dynamic Contrast Ratio, Samsung's proprietary technology, provides deeper and more refined images with the highest contrast in the industry.

The LED LCD TV also brings a new level to the clarity of moving images, based on Samsung's exclusive LCD 100 Hz video quality enhancement technology. A TV screen displays about 50 frames per second, which can create drag in fast-moving videos. Samsung's LCD 100 Hz inserts a frame between each two frames, considerably reducing motion blur. The inserted frame maintains the detailed motion characteristic of the video, and goes through motion estimation and compensation processing. Therefore, compared to a mere duplication and insertion of frames, more natural motion can be realised without undermining other characteristics such as clarity, brightness and colour.

Very nice! Of course there's no pricing or availabilty information yet but we'll keep you posted.
