For the past several years mobile phones were the hot topic at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), but the biggest fuss at this year’s show, which ran from January 8-11 in Las Vegas this year, was concerning the latest technology in televisions.
Since the first show in 1967 that was held in New York City, the technology keeps expanding and surprising consumers.
One of the big items that was announced, from Samsung, was a new TV that allows two people to watch two different shows at the same time.
This is similar to the old picture-in-picture technology used in the massive CRT televisions. In this new technology two viewers are able to watch different shows, each wearing a set of special glasses and headphones. There is no date on when this TV will launch or how much it will cost.
Samsung also unveiled their brand new F8000 LED TV with a thinner profile.
The bezel measures under 0.25 inches and has a look that makes the TV appear to be floating. It will be available in sizes up to 75 inches as soon as this March, with pricing yet to be announced.
The device is Samsung’s first TV with a quad-core processor and support for online services and apps, and it should be 3x faster than Samsung’s 2012 TV models.
Another interesting innovation concerning TV’s that was shown at CES was a 3D technology for TV’s that does not require any 3D glasses.
A couple companies have tried to create a 3D TV that did not require glasses, but Dolby may have created the winner.
This new technology gives viewers the ability to enjoy the 3D effect at any angle in the room rather than having to sit directly in front as has been the case previously.
No release date has been announced yet for these televisions to hit the market, but Dolby has been in discussion with television manufacturers to have the technology integrated.
