HD Hot Buttons

April 2, 2007 |

Our high def focus this time zooms in on Panasonic panels, lower priced disc players and DirecTV’s growing programming array.

Panny’s New Plasmas: I’m a big fan of plasma screens – for their faster switching pixels, great color, blacker blacks and better defined grey scalings. So I’m pleased with the news out of the Panasonic camp regarding the brand’s next flat screens. While fielding new LCD-based panels in 26-32 inch screen sizes, Panasonic ‘s mission (and factories) will be pushing only plasma , as the better solution, in everything 42 -inches and above. More importantly, they’ll bring out several new and less expensive models that can do the full HD dance – displaying a resolution of 1080p (that’s 1080 lines counted vertically by 1920 pixels lined up horizontally on each line, with each set of lines progressively scanned 60 times a second.)

March 13, 2007 |

daniel-craig-eva-green-james-bond-casino-royale-5First, a major correction: Last week’s blog stated that a certain series of Blu-ray releases were slated for last week, March 6th.

I also forgot to add ” The Holiday” to that week’s release schedule (well, I argue, it’s a forgettable film). Please ignore the idiot behind the curtain… he means well, and is housebroken, but apparently his editor doesn’t parse his material, so there. Read More

On the Bleeding Edge

January 2, 2007 |

I know it’s been said before, but I (finally) have to echo what other bloggers have been saying about high definition: it’s STILL too bleeding edge for a lot of users. So, here’s a rant:

First, credentials. I’m about as … Read More

Big screen. Bigger. Bigger than that.

December 16, 2006 |

“I can’t tell the difference between DVD and HD,” sez a typical flat-panel shopper, staring at a “huge” 42-inch screen.

No, he’s not an idiot. He’s not undiscerning. In many cases, he’s right. Because 42″ is a dang small screen.
