CMO

Posted by Charbax on March 16th, 2006

It’s the second biggest big LCD TV screen manufacturer from Taiwan. I am being filmed by the press lady because she could not find anyone at the stand who could talk on video. At that booth I got some information about price difference between 720p “HD Ready” and 1080p Full HD, supposedly the price difference is only something like 10 or 20$. Probably, just after the world cup, the big brands will change all the “HD Ready” screens out with Full HD LCD screens for approximately the same price. So my recommendation is to not buy “HD Ready” LCD, rather look for the availabillity of Full HD screens for reasonable prices, or get a 1000$ “HD Ready” projector for the World Cup to be your temporary semi-HD screen solution, as the 1080p projectors might take longer to be available to consumers, and while most available HD content is 720p anyways. Even though the videos from my site are in “HD Ready” 720p, it’s best to have a Full HD screen that is more future proof. I could for example some day re-encode all my videos from the HDV 1080i source and re-release them as 1080p in a higher bitrate.

Lifesize

Posted by Charbax on March 16th, 2006

High Definition videoconferencing system, sends a 720p h264 feed over a standard 1,5mbit/s two-way connection. This is the first high definition video-conferencing that I have experienced, it is really awesome! I cannot wait to have this in my living room with a nice HDTV and that everyone in my family and friends would have the same. It is definately interesting to talk with someone in HD on a big screen, so look forward to having this in your living room and finding it usefull to stay connected and have long conversations like this with family and friends who are far away.

Thomson Portable DVB-T

Posted by Charbax on March 14th, 2006

This is a portable DVB-T player from Thomson, with Sim-card compartment so it also supports pay-per-view. It nearly fits in the pocket, has a dual antenna system that always picks the best signal, but no harddrive built-in for portable DVR functions yet.

Grandstream

Posted by Charbax on March 14th, 2006

The GXP-2000 is as far as I know the best SIP phone on the market with lots of advanced features and is quite cheap. Now Grandstream is introducing the GVX-3000 which is a video SIP phone, and the suggested retail price is to be 295$ which makes it the cheapest h264 SIP video phone that I know of.
