Hi-Def Debrief: What’s New on the Web
Smarthouse reports Samsung Electronics will unveil a “swag of new IP enabled TVs” at the Consumer Electronics Show this week, as it switches focus from 3D to Internet content.
Writes John Archer: “In looking over 2010’s TV and projector technology as a whole, it seemed to us that for once, maybe the a/v world had innovated too much.
“It felt as if the TV brands had tried to introduce so much new stuff that they’d ended up fumbling some of it.”
The New York Times has published a useful guide to buying a TV, most of which is as relevant to the NZ market as it is to the US.
It includes a viewing distance rule of thumb that recommends you divide it by three, with the result being the ideal height of the screen (which is usually about half the diagonal measure).
And if you want to know how to hook up that new Boxing Day bargain, Engadget has the answers.
