Unfortunately, I watched and heard every momemt of it. It was the worst of stage shows and I nodded off at the very end. Tthey really didn't go through all their new products and presented very little detail about anything except their new phones and their phones data transferring ability by touching them to the transferer. Oh yea, and their new line of headphones endorsed by Simon Cowl.
They introduced two smaller 4K flat pannel, something like a 65 and 55 incher. The tried to show off a OLED flat panel 48 inch or was it 58 inches but had a software glitch (production was a ways off, i.e., the unit was a prototype). They did mention their 4K server for purchasers of their 4K panels and that they would have a 4K content service up and running by the Summer. No details, not clear from Sony people whether on line downloads or disc (memory card). Re 4K bluray, their immediate plan was to use 4K sources for down rez and transfer to 1080p bluray. Holly Fecal. Sony. Only Sony.
The presentation was by the head of Sony hardware, the UK young guy, and he kept asking the audience questions and got indifferent responses. Kept telling them how cool the new stuff was and how only Sony could do it (with no baloney, just his pink balls in a suitcase). You could read in his awe of Sony studeos and that his side was able to gewt the content to distrubute to panel buyers. Nothing was said about content to 4K FP owners.
He did give some really big news re projectors. One or more of the new cameras had a projector built into it. WOW Fornicating WOW. He used the theme of wow but I think most of the audience were lulled to sleep by the time the wow theme came into play.
The message here is that if this is the response Sony came up with, its new products, selling headphones endorsed by Simon Cowl, and pink (speaker) balls to put in your suitcase, Sony is doomed. Actually rather scary
Forgot, they plan in the future to introduce a prosumer 4K camcorder (actually 4HD). Not ready yet. Also TV ways, they hyped expamded color gaumets (which would become useful accuracy ways when you get their new camcorder someday. Part of the WOW BS. Sony is doomed.Edited by mark haflich - 1/8/13 at 8:43am
