The blue packaging used for BluRay releases in the US market is skipped in Japan.

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?

Google won't let me get to www.google.com. It forces me to www.google.co.jp when I use my Mozilla Firefox browser.

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.

I remember Luxman products fondly. In the eighties, they had a classy look and feel that set them apart from many of their Japanese counterparts.

With the image paused, no one in the room saw anything amiss with the SED display from Toshiba/Canon. But the camera has a different take on things.

While the other JVC products are practically here, their demo of 3D technology, based on some funky glasses and a pair of their 4K projectors (4096 x 2160 pixels), was, what's the term, oh yeah, universe shattering!

In the first half of 2007, JVC will bring out a true HD camcorder. The camcorder will have a hard drive built in so you can forget about tapes forever. 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.

This is a reviewer that is famous in Japan. And that's Home Theater's own Geoffrey Morrison standing next to her.
