Samsung Confirms Google TV At CEDIA EXpo

By Wire Service | Friday | 24/09/2010

THE US CEDIA Expo kicked off this week with several Australians attending the Atlanta show where 3D is still a hot topic. Sony launched a new 3D projector and Pioneer showed off three new 3D Blu ray player and Samsung confirmed thatb they will release a Google TV offering.

Pioneer also revealed new iPhone certified receivers, iPhone and iPad docking stations along with new IPTV capable devices.

"We want to play nice with every type of content, high-def, low-res, 2D, 3D," said Eric Smith, national trainer for Pioneer's home electronics department told Home Theatre Magazine.

 "I think we all know content is king, and 3D is a lot of fun once you have it."

The Samsung Google TV, which is set to come out early next year in Australia, allows users to access movies from Google's YouTube.

Dan Schinasi, senior marketing manager for Samsung's HDTV product planning group, said it will be interesting to see how that device works.

"I'm not saying it's a bad thing, but every one of our applications is tested before it's made available, to make sure it works," he said. "It's not the wild, wild west."

Several attendees to the  CEDIA Expo said that the lack of 3D content was restricting the growth of 3D as a technology.

"We think there's a huge, pent-up demand for Blu-ray movie servers, as more people get into high-def," said Linus Wong, director of product marketing for movie server company Kaleidescape. "[But] this 3D format is so new, and there doesn't seem to be as much traction as when Blu-ray itself launched. If the market calls for it, we'll deliver support for it."

FrAlso on show was the new  Sharp  Quattron 3D LED LCD TVs (paired with two sets of 3D glasses), the company's first 3D HD DLP home theater projector, and two new, networked 3D Blu-ray players. Several of these products will be launched in Australia during the next four months said Sharp officals.

Sony Electronics unveiled its first 3D front projector withv a price tag of $10,000.

"Sony understands the 3D ecosystem better than any manufacturer so dealers and installers can count on Sony products to deliver the best possible 3D experience," said Brian Siegel, VP of Sony's home audio and video business.

Luxury display company Runco said its new line of 3D projectors can deliver a high-def picture using passive glasses, as opposed to the active-shutter shades used by consumer electronics companies today.

"The 3D-at-home revolution is an exciting development for display companies and for 3D enthusiasts," said Runco marketing VP Jennifer Davis. "Runco approached 3D from both a physiological and technological perspective and the result is better than any 3D TV or 3D projection experience being sold today. Runco's 3Dimension solution produces an incomparable 3D experience in the home and private cinemas that surpasses the public-theater experience."

The Runco D-73d projector comes this fourth quarter with a price tag of $49,995. 

In non-3D news, Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment was the lone studio to set up its own booth, promoting its World of Wonder WOW DVDs and Blu-ray Discs, which help both amateur and expert home video enthusiasts make the most of their home theater systems.

"We've had just a lot of interest," said Louise Garvie, director of digital distribution for Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment. "A lot of people want to know if they can have it today!" The DVDs and Blu-rays go on sale in November.
