CEDIA 2012: Live Updates from AVS Members - Page 2

Video of Sony's 84-inch 4K TV being demoed at CEDIA today. This thing is gorgeous...


 

 

You need to watch the high resolution version on Youtube to really see, though.

Looks like a good time. Is the LG 84" 4k beast represented? If so, how does it compare to the Sony? I just read the LG will retail for $19,999. Get one for every room. Also, any word on the Red Ray laser projector?

LG wasn't showing theirs at CEDIA, unfortunately (at least not at the convention itself) -- in fact, LG isn't at the show at all. It's unfortunate, I would have loved to check it out too.

Choosing between a 84"diag (73"W) lcd tv and my 136"W HP screen with a 4K projector (Sony1000), it's a no brainer for me.   (I can understand, though, if it's not possible to control external light that a lcd tv is a good choice.)

Any Sony HX 950's there. Would be nice to see some pictures of that and hear some impressions. Also is Oppo at the show? New bluray player soon ?

Ok all, after walking the floor.
JVC projectors
now trhe 95 75 55 and think 35...
the top three have eshift2.
The 2d pic on top line was just amazing. 3d just ok. great pics
The glasses will now be rf, great . They were not sure but prices should be the same

Epson
The top projector at 4000 was amazing. I actually liked the 3d better then the jvc.

Of course digital projection projectors were great but so were the prices.

Wolf was showing their pics with the jvc engine, but the old one. They had their 95k projector showing 3d. yes best pics.

We stopped agan dalite screens and saw the joe kane screen. He was demonstrating it with his old discontinued projector samsung projector. very clean pics.

Sony still showing the 25k 4k projector. It won the cepro dat com
Sony showed their new 84 inch 4k flat screen.. also 25k.

urc showed great looking new remotes and house controls.

Fusion research had some great media servers.

Lots and lots of automation products..
Also many theater seat companys.
Convention center very nice

More on Friday.

Toshiba video demo of 4K gaming!

 

 

Quote:

To experience the most insane video-gamging ever, get a 4K Quad-FHD screen from Toshiba and connect a powerful PC with a 4K-capable latest/fastest GPU such as ATI 7970 and Nvidia 680, you can then play many of the latest big high-end games that thus render the full 3840x2160 of the game at 30fps, it looks awesome.

I'd like to see battlefield 3 running at 4k! 4k gaming will take a long time to become standard. I'm betting the next consoles won't even run at 4k, even if they do we'll be seeing 1080p native resolutions upscaled to 4k.

I posted some impressions of Sony's 4K display in a separate thread in case anyone wants to check it out...  http://www.avsforum.com/t/1428193/4k-i-have-seen-the-light

So yeah, a few of us AVS folks checked out the XBR-84X900 in Sony's booth right when we got to the show. I'll say this, at times I did stand closer to the screen than I might in my own living room, but… wow. Seriously. It was really impressive. I completely see the need for these -- when the price is right.

What was that??

Thanks!

It seems more difficult to find information about Cedia compared to shows like E3; It seems to get much more web coverage.
post #45 of 85
For anyone that is there can you see if Marantz will be releasing a prepro with Audyssey XT32 this year?
post #46 of 85

Ha, this was pretty cool to see at the show. Antennas Direct has a Mobile Testing Lab they can drive around to test the signal strength of their antennas. smile.gif

Got to see the Mark Levinson 40th Anniversary Collection at the Harman Kardon booth earlier, including the No 52...

 

 

 

 

 

Quote:

The № 52 is quite simply the finest Mark Levinson preamplifier ever. It is an all-analog, true dual-monaural design with a two-chassis configuration that separates the critical analog audio circuitry from the control section to maintain the purest signal paths possible.

The № 52 provides a comprehensive complement of inputs including three balanced XLR and four unbalanced RCA line-level inputs, and a dedicated phono input that is selectable for moving coil (MC) or moving magnet (MM) operation. Two sets of XLR and RCA stereo preamplifier outputs are provided, along with an auxiliary pair of XLR and RCA outputs that can be configured for fixed or variable level output with independent source selection. This enables the auxiliary outputs to function either as a third preamp out, a pass-through full-range subwoofer output or a record output.

Sorry I missed the AVS Forum crew. We at Solid Signal were wandering the floors too.

It was great to see the Darblet and meet those guys, and to see the TiVo stream in person. DIRECTV showed their C31 RVU receiver, man that thing is tiny.

We were a little underwhelmed by the Sony TV. 4k is awesome, but at any rational viewing distance it was hard to tell the difference. However, upscaled HD looked really awesome, and obviously a TV like that has the resolution to do full 1080p 3D without any of the compromises you'll find on an HDTV.

Enjoy the party tonight... we're back to work!

"Is that thing heavy?" 'Yes..." "Then it's expensive. Put it down" cool.gif

That is their prototype or concept for the next product, which has multiple inputs and perhaps some other features. Too early to say for sure, but they're targeting a release of it next year. Would be priced well above the simple Darblet...

Here's a photo of their booth, I'll get a shot of the concept later.

Here's another great thread with updates on projectors at CEDIA:

Anyone that went into the Darbee booth, did you get a look at the small flat panel I believe they had there which was said during Darbee's recent visit to New Zealand and Rapallo AV, to have a joint effort behind it and its new 3D without glasses attempt that is very different from "lenticular" approaches.........and DVP processing behind it? Larry hinted weeks ago it would be very cool to anyone seeing it the first time without saying what "it" was.

The company is in NZ as well. http://www.puredepth.com

Any news on Sharp updating the hardware or software on their 80" sets? rolleyes.gif
post #55 of 85
Anything on affordable Amps like Emotiva or AVR's like the Marantz SR series? Home Theater speakers? Anything on room analyzers or Audyssey upgrades? News regarding subs, like SVS?

My wife thinks I'm spending too much money and I want to prove her right. tongue.gif

Yep, that's something that will be out next year with many inputs, a touchscreen display...Darblet on steroids!

They don't even have literature for it yet, just a teaser for folks to drool over, but definitely not a just an upgrade to the Darlet, a different price point altogether.

Here is more info on Darbee's new product that I posted in this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1428271/darbee-fidelio-demoed-at-cedia

Just like the Darblet, the Fidelio can vastly improve upon standard visuals (here are some high res examples if you want to see). While it's still a ways off -- a Darbee rep said it'll ship in Q3 of next year -- they had a prototype of it running at the show. As you can see, it's definitely for the higher-end consumer: it has a slick looking video equalizer, a touch-screen user interface, and it's wifi-enabled for downloadable features. Darbee says it'll likely retail in the $2,000 range.

Pretty awesome stuff. Had a nice small demo room with three of the 15" two ways lcr and the dual 6" two ways for lr surround and lr rears. Dual 18 powered subs. Nice sq with gobs of headroom. Check them out if you have a moment.

4k Sony panel looked great even when very close. Really fun to see that resolution on a native display.
