2007 CEDIA Expo

2007 CEDIA Expo

1080p is here and Denver is the place. We'll check out the latest products - all of which are tending to boast about HDMI 1.3 or some crazy new limit-defying feature that extends the bounds of what was previously thought of. Will Pioneer's hype about a new plasma technology pay off or be just another ho-hum plasma iteration? We'll bring you VIDEO coverage this year as well as AVRant podcasts live from the show floor. Stay tuned!

Additionally, there was a static demonstration of a DLP HDTV with DarkChip 4 and LED illumination with a stated contrast performance of 100,000 to 1.

Panasonic PT-AX200U First Look

Panasonic PT-AX200U First Look

Panasonic unveiled its new PT-AX200U LCD 720p home theater projector which is designed to target gamers. Tom Taylor, or Tsquared as he's known in the Major League Gaming community, was on-hand to demonstrate just how the PT-AX200U aids in removing game lack associated with online play. The system boosts speed by 3x (though it wasn't expressed exactly how this functioned) in an effort to lower game lag - something Tom is very familiar with. According to him, the lag was all but gone and the system made gaming much more enjoyable. An Xbox 360 was on hand to allow attendees to play him head-to-head... Taylor was gracious and only made a partial fool out of us as he gave us tips to avoid having him walk up behind us, tap us on the shoulder, and frag us...

New SolidDrive Series

New SolidDrive Series

Induction Dynamics unveiled its second generation SolidDrive sound producer at CEDIA 2007. If you are not familiar with the SolidDrive, it is a powerful sound transducer that transmits acoustical energy through almost any solid surface. The entire surface with which SolidDrive comes in contact becomes a speaker, delivering high-quality sound and the frequency response of conventional diaphragm speakers. It is a really cool product, that lets you turn any wall, for instance, into a speaker with nothing showing. The sound quality is not bad, considering.

Another impressive loudspeaker product I had the pleasure of demoing in Denver at CEDIA 2007 was the Phase Technology dARTS Digital Audio Reference Theater System. The demo was one of the loudest I have ever heard anywhere, but was quite impressive.
