Why Don't Australia's TV Channels Broadcast In HD?

Finally, someone’s asking the big questions. Ed Husic, Federal Member for Chifley and Australia Tax fighter, has spoken in Parliament on the fact that Australia’s main free-to-air TV stations still don’t broadcast in HD.


Let's Make TVs Accurate, 'Not Enhanced'

AquoMotion, AquoDimming, Auto-Depth Enhancer, Motionflow, Precision Black Local Dimming, Clear Action. These are the marketing names given to common features built into today’s televisions to “enhance” the image. But while they alter the picture in a way that makes it catch your eye, the result often bears little resemblance to how it was intended to look. That’s a problem.


Look Out HDMI And DisplayPort, There's A New Cable In Town

Ever heard of Mobile High-Definition Link, or MHL for short? Today, it’s a way to connect a smartphone to a HDTV or monitor via microUSB. But the new SuperMHL could challenge HDMI and DisplayPort dominance over your entire home theatre.


LG's New WebOS 2.0 Ribbon Navigator Might Actually Be Usable 

For as much as I loved the LG 9300′s curved OLED screen, trying to navigate through the set’s menus using the motion-controlled smart remote and the onscreen Web OS menu could be an infuriating task. Hopefully the second generation navigation menu that LG just announced ahead of CES will make it less of a chore.

Reuters: Panasonic Will Kill Off Its Plasma TVs By March 2014

According to Reuters, Panasonic is going to stop production of its fantastic plasma TV sets by March 2014. That sucks, but it’s also not surprising since previous reports had hinted at Panasonic planning to cut its TV production and that the TV market has been overtaken by seemingly every other technology not named plasma.


Ewan McGregor Still Amped About LG's Curved OLED TVs

LG’s 55-inch curved OLED TV really is amazingly nuts in person. It stands up to tests and we’ve been excited since the Aussie launch back in May, where McGregor flatly described them as “f**king good tellys.” Nice one Obi-Wan. Well, LG’s brand ambassador is back and still excited; in his own dapper way, of course.


What It's Like To Watch An Entire Football Field On An Über-Wide Screen

A few weeks ago, news of Panasonic’s ambitious ultra-widescreen four-camera system had us trying to desperately imagine what it must be like to watch an entire sporting event on a single 64:9 panorama.
