Â AppleTV The Next Big Thing From Apple
With Appleâ€™s new multimedia powerhouse AppleTV, there’s always something good on television. With Apple TV, you can enjoy movies, TV shows, music, and podcasts in your iTunes library, plus photos and movie trailers, on your widescreen TV â€” wirelessly, from either your Mac or PC.
Our Intrepid Sr. Editor Lonny Paul Breaks Down a pair of Televisions that You just have to Have.
Sharp LC-46D62U 46 Inch LCD HDTV
The AQUOSÂ® LC-46D62U sets a new standard for large-screen flat-panel TVs. With Full HD Spec 1080p resolution, dramatically enhanced black level and an elegant new design, it produces a breathtaking picture quality that is second to none.
Panasonic TH50PH9UK Huge 50 Inch Plasma Television
A 50″ plasma display with the size and the exceptional image quality that is equally at home in the broadcast studio, a corporate boardroom, or on the set.
Plasma, Rear Projection, and LCD Displays Change TV Forever
Since its invention decades ago, there have been constant advances in television manufacturing.Â One thing has remained constant: the Cathode Ray Tube that projects images onto the television screen.Â Now the television industry is experiencing a paradigm shift that promises to eliminate these traditional television sets by replacing them with flat panel technology.Â
Youâ€™ve finally made the decision to upgrade your television. This is a very important decision, considering the time that youâ€™ll use viewing programs, the aesthetics of the television and the cost incurred with upgrading your television. Before making your new television purchase, there are several factors that must be considered first such as:
Enjoy the ultimate viewing experience of this Philips Cineos Flat TV with Pixel Plus 2 HD, Ambilight 2, the latest PDP technology and table top stand. The Digital Media Reader via USB gives you full access to multimedia content.
While many people are still scratching their heads, asking “What the heck is Ambilight?” – I ask you to watch this video compilation including a Philips Ambilight commercial from Poland — if you haven’t already seen the “Hulk” video on TV lately.
So, the concept is that the experience you gain from the more “dramatic” lighting. While the current version @ TigerDirect offers the 2 channel Ambilight, watch for the forthcoming 4 channel models that are now being released. This technology can truly enhance your overall home theater (and GAMING) experience.
If you thought you couldnâ€™t get by without your DVD player, wait until you see a movie shown on a high-definition DVD player. The difference is stunning! Now that high-definition DVD players are on the market at last, why not go out and buy one? Two reasons â€“ high prices, and the war between the two incompatible formats â€“ HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. Prices on high def start at about $500, while the Blu-Ray models are around $1000. Itâ€™s possible that one of these formats wonâ€™t survive their ongoing battle, and you might just be out of luck if you buy a player that works on the losing format.
Those old enough to remember a similar war between BETA and VHS video formats might note that you can still find VHS video cassette players, while their BETA counterparts are only found beneath cobwebs or on basement floors. Thus, a little patience might serve you well. However, if you canâ€™t wait to own your own high-definition DVD player, this article will help you make your choice and also shed light on the standard DVD players available.
