  • Sound & Vision lists the top 7 HD shows – Do you agree?

    Sound & Vision has a list of what they feel are the top high definition shows this fall. CSI: Miami Pushing Daisies The Mentalist Heros True Blood The Office Dexter While I don’t disagree with first two, Dexter (best show on TV, btw) and True Blood should be higher on the list. Plus SNL, Stargate: Atlantis, and ER all better looking than The Office. Great show, but there… Read More

  • Reggie kills that pesky Wii HD in 2011 rumor

    In Reggie we trust, right? Hope so, but he just killed quite the rumor in a recent interview. The president and COO of Nintendo told VentureBeat that the rumored Wii HD, “penned” for 2011, is a joke. Calling it “pure rumor and speculation,” Reggie says that Nintendo isn’t about to show developers prototype version and ask, coyly, “What do you guys… Read More

  • Ikonoskop A-cam dll: tiny, uncompressed 1080p for pros


    The options for shooting hi-def video are getting more and more diverse, and this thing is a good example of that. What exactly is this shape? Well, although the design might not win any awards (well, maybe — it’s quite small), the footage should look brilliant. It records 1080p up to 60fps and 12-bit color, but it outputs as an enormous series of DNG files — essentially… Read More

  • Buffalo stuffs full HD resolution into a 22-inch LCD

    If you’ve researched LCD displays in the past, you’ll have likely come across the resolution gap between most 22- and 24-inch LCD monitors. Most 22-inch monitors seem to be at a pretty sweet price point right now, but the 1680×1050 resolution is short of most 24-inch monitors’ full HD (1920×1200) resolution. Well Buffalo has managed to cram full HD resolution into… Read More

  • Mitsubishi announces trio of 1080p projectors

    CEDIA is set to begin tomorrow, but that doesn’t mean companies won’t be announcing products today.

  • Sony launches T500 Cyber-shot – HD video and more

    My goodness, there has been a lot of digital cameras launched within the last few days. Nikon, Canon and now Sony. This firm’s latest sports a 10.1 megapixel paired up with a 5x optical zoom and a 3.5-inch touchscreen, but the main selling point of the T500 has to be the HD video capture mode.

  • Wired finally goes all out on the RED


    I have to say, the Wired I used to love would have covered the RED camera about two years ago when it was all buzz, phantom tech, and prototype sensors, and not now when it is essentially an established cinematic tool limited only by the small amount yet manufactured. At any rate, they’ve written a pretty comprehensive long-format history of the RED from birth to current success… Read More

We have some huge deals.” That’s a lot of high-def content. More than any service we can think of. But also, the company wants to… Read More
