World’s biggest TV: Panasonic’s 4K2K 3D 152-inch Plasma

September 27, 2012

The record-breaking 152-inch Panasonic Full HD 3D Plasma Display Panel

If you’re a fan of movies like Poltergeist or Videodrome, in which people get really “immersed” in their television-viewing experiences, then you’ll probably like the latest news from Panasonic – it’s developed the world’s largest full-HD 3D plasma display TV. As presented at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the one-off behemoth sports a 152-inch, 4K x 2K (8.84 million pixel) screen, plus a host of other complicated-sounding technical marvels.

The big TV is actually just an oversized example of Panasonic’s existing Full HD 3D PDP (Plasma Display Panel) line. PDP utilizes a new process called super-efficient quadruple luminance efficiency technology. This means it can achieve the same brightness as a conventional full-HD panel in about one-quarter the amount of time, allowing it to keep up with rapidly-moving 3D imagery.

It also incorporates crosstalk reduction technology, which minimizes the amount of overlap between what is seen by the viewers’ left and right eyes. This, in turn, reduces double images. Other systems alternately display their left- and right-eye images one line at a time, meaning that within one frame of video, every other line is going to be directed at either the left or right eye. PDP, however, displays one full frame per eye at a time, reducing overlap and increasing resolution. Crosstalk reduction technology also incorporates newly-developed phosphors with one third the decay time of conventional phosphors, AND something called illumination control technology. The upshot is, you’ll see Freddy Kreuger flinging one hatchet at your face, not two.

Although Panasonic has not said whether the 152-inch PDP will ever be commercially available, the company will be producing glass panels of that size, which will be cut up for use on smaller models… But those smaller models still won’t be exactly tiny. Although not yet confirmed by Panasonic, the 103-inch PDP they presented as a concept in 2008 has now made it to market – for a cool $US70,000.

Always Innovating’s HDMI dongle turns any HDTV into a “Smart” TV

The HDMI dongle that turns any HDTV into a ‘Smart TV’

Now you don’t necessarily need to own a “Smart TV” in order to get Android apps on your television. Always Innovating will be showing off its HDMI dongle at CES this week, a compact device that can turn any HDTV into a Smart TV. Essentially Always Innovating’s HDMI Dongle is a portable version of a set-top box. The device is based on the Texas Instruments Cortex-A9 OMAP 4 ,which can run from 1GHz to 1.8GHz depending of the configuration, and offers 1GB of RAM as well as a micro SD card for local storage.

The dongle can run on Ice Cream Sandwich, can stream and decode 1080p H.264 video from the Internet, and is compatible with popular streaming-video services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon. The device is controlled using a special 9-button remote that is capable of interpreting voice inputs and features near field communication (NFC) technology to offer tap-to-share capabilities.

Once you’ve connected the dongle, which is powered via USB, to your “dumb TV” you can surf the web, watch movies, and play games online like you might on larger devices put out by the competition. The device is also both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth-capable so it can be connected to both the Web and any compatible accessories you might want to use along with it.

While Always Innovating will be showing off its HDMI dongle this week at CES in Las Vegas, the company will not be producing the device for commercial sale; however, it intends on licensing it to others. The company says that the technology used in the dongle could also be “be used as the heart of a tablet or MID device.”

Always Innovating’s HDMI dongle is very similar to the Roku Streaming Stick, which was also announced this week. Roku’s stick takes the power of a traditional Roku box and places it on a USB stick-sized device that can also transform any HDTV into a “Smart TV.” Roku’s Streaming Stick is expected to be available in stores later this year for US$50 – $100.

Here’s a video of the Always Innovating HDMI Dongle being demoed by company founder Grégoire Gentil a couple of months back running Gingerbread.




NYPD developing portable body scanner for detecting concealed weapons

September 26, 2012

The New York Police Department is developing a portable scanner for detecting concealed guns on peoples’ bodies

You have to feel sorry for the police officers who are required to frisk people for guns or knives – after all, if someone who doesn’t want to be arrested is carrying a lethal weapon, the last thing that most of us would want to do is get close enough to that person to touch them. That’s why the New York Police Department teamed up with the United States Department of Defense three years ago, and began developing a portable scanner that can remotely detect the presence of a gun on a person’s body. The NYPD announced the project yesterday.

The device uses infrared light rays to image radiation being emitted by a person’s body. Wherever a solid metal object such as a gun is blocking those rays from reaching the body, a silhouette of that object will appear on the scanner’s screen. So far, the technology only works from a distance of about three or four feet (about one meter), although NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly hopes that its range can ultimately be extended to at least 25 meters (82 feet).

The plan is for the scanner to be mounted on a van, then used on suspects who would otherwise have to be physically searched.
