In an earlier blog I suggested that SIM2 with its new Nero4 projector was the first to use TI’s new pseudo 4K chip, meaning that it uses pixel shifting on its digital micromirrors to put the full resolution of a 4K source on screen, but not all at once. Half of the resolution is presented first, then microseconds later the mirrors shift by a fraction of a pixel and the rest of the image is displayed.

Alcons is a company new to me, but they went all out in a Pro-for-Home, home theater setup. The speakers were a complex assemblage, with pro mid and high frequency drivers, the latter claimed to be an extremely rugged ribbon...

The introduction and demonstration of Epson’s new(ish) Pro Cinema LS10500 Laser Diode illuminated 4Ke projector was one of the highlights of the show. It differs from the previous LS10500 mainly in the inclusion of HDR-capability.

The “e” in the 4Ke designation indicates that this projector, like all of the relatively affordable projectors available from Epson and JVC, uses pixel shift to display a 4K input...

Samsung’s booth was very small (the same was true of both Sony and LG—common at CEDIA as the big TV makers guard their piggy banks until CES). While nothing was truly new, they did effectively demonstrate their sound-bar based Atmos audio system, and lined up three of their flagship KS9800 curved SUHD sets to wow the crowds.

Shown here are two of the new drivers used in RBH’s new Signature Reference speakers, as discussed in a previous blog—a new AMT tweeter (replacing the previous dome) and a new bass-midrange.

In-wall, on-wall, and other such custom installation products are a staple at CEDIA. Free-standing speakers? Not so much. Though there’s an ample supply of those (some of which we’ve written up in other show blogs), CES in January is where new box speakers go to be launched.

TruAudio’s BD-8 WT/BK encloses its 2-way speaker in a pendant designed to be hung from the ceiling...

The BeoVision 14, a new Series of Ultra HDTVs unveiled by Danish manufacturer Bang & Olufsen today at its CEDIA press event, up the ante on the aesthetics front by providing an element not often seen in modern TV design: wood.
