Virtually all 4K/UHD HDR-capable TVs include onboard streaming apps, but outboard streaming receivers often offer a greater...

  4. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Kaleidescape has long been the gold standard of movie servers, in terms of both quality and price. From DVD to Blu-ray to UHD Blu-ray, Kaleidescape servers play digital files that are bit-for-bit identical to the corresponding discs. So it is with the company's latest server, the Kaleidescape...
  5. Digital Hi-End Projectors - $3,000+ USD MSRP
    Most of the 4K/UHD DLP projectors I've seen have been underwhelming, with poor contrast and, in many cases, lots of rainbow artifacts. However, I saw one at CES 2018 that far exceeded my expectations: the Wolf PRO-617. Wolf Cinema is probably best known for its home-theater projectors based...
  6. Digital Projectors - Under $3,000 USD MSRP
    Three new Optoma 4K UHD projectors are making their debut at CES 2018—well, two distinct models, one of which will be available in two varieties. All are based on Texas Instrument's 4K UHD DLP single-chip imaging technology. The biggest news is the UHD51A , which integrates with Amazon Alexa...
  7. Networking, Media Servers & Content Streaming
    Last month, I reported a rumor that the fifth generation of the Apple TV set-top streamer would include the ability to stream 4K/UHD and high dynamic-range (HDR) content. That rumor has now been almost completely verified with the introduction of the Apple TV 5. (The only part I haven't been...

    I recently took a long weekend to visit some friends in Portland, OR, where they have a second home. They pop over from their main home in London two or three times a year, so they decided not to pay for cable or satellite TV in Portland because it wouldn't be used in the months they aren't...
  11. Latest Industry News
    Everyone knows that the larger the screen, the more a TV costs—at least, up until now. But if Hisense makes good on its announcement a few days ago, that could change. During the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) Euro soccer finals in Paris, the Chinese giant unveiled plans to...
  12. HTPC - Mac Chat
    After a long time the Mac mini is here in a updated version (late 2014). For an AV-enthusiast two questions are interesting: - 4K/UHD support details (HDMI version, HDCP version, colorspace support etc)? So far Apple only released the following specs: "HDMI video output Support for 1080p...
