Pioneer blew everyone away with their new 60" plasma prototypes. They claim better than 20,000:1 contrast. They say they can't measure it any higher given todays test equipment. I wonder what Toshiba is using to measure the 50,000:1 contrast they claim they've achieved with SED?

Microsoft's HDMI-less HD-DVD-less XBox 360 has a tumor of an add-on. For $200, you can only play HD-DVD discs <i>through </i> your 360's component output. The sign in front of the unit summarizes my thoughts on the subject succinctly.

The size of the drive, unknown, but I wouldn't be surprised if would hold at least a "vacation's" worth of video at its 1920 x 1080 resolution. The camera has 10X optical zoom and they had one setup filming a rotating flower display while they showed it on a 1080 plasma. With the "source material" there for direct comparison, the cam looked better than anything I've seen in a consumer format. No price yet.

JVC showed a split screen demo on an LCD. Special processing was performed on the left side to eliminate blurring artifacts, while on the right side it was business as usual. And business as usual for an LCD is typically take every opportunity for turning something with motion into an ugly mess. What JVC did, with the 60Hz video material was to double the frames by creating an interperlated frame between each "real."
