The JBL/Harman Luxury Group demo was perhaps the most impressive at the show for the totality of its picture and sound.

Monoprice doesn’t offer just direct sale cables and big power amps. At CEDIA they offered some exciting new (and surprisingly cheap) products.

CEDIA is a custom installation show by definition, and many or most of the demos used in-wall or on-wall speakers, for better or worse. One of the “better” was the GoldenEar demo.

Bose doesn’t often attend CEDIA (or CES for that matter), so I was surprised to see them here. The emphasis here appeared to be on lifestyle or custom install products, noted in another blog.

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.

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...
