The blind side part

The blind side part 12

Interesting Blu-Ray isnt your champion. No USB ethernet on a player that is 2x as expensive. You gotta ask yourself just where are they putting the extra money? In their pockets I presume. Besides whats more exciting than this? Funny thing is not only has Toshiba beat the BDA to market with players theyre going to beat them in recorders too. Shipping mid July before Sony even has their player out the door. You guys are betting on the wrong horse. Wrong yet again Murch. I almost fell out of my chair laughing when I heard you claim that you were wrong very few times here in another post. See this Toshiba has no intention of shipping the new machine, RD-A1, outside Japan and aims to sell 10, 000 units by December. Sony has the blind side part 12 offering Blu-ray-based recorders since 2003, although its initial retail list price of 450, 000 yen and a lack of software kept the blind side part 12 from becoming widely adopted. So how is Toshiba going to be first to market again? And, again, only in Japan? With yet, oh look, yet another 10, 000 units. Your betting on a delusional horse. Regarding where they are putting the extra money, it is clear that the initial Blu-ray players are right in line with the cost of CD and DVD players were historically at launch and the reason being is they are recouping R D costs. Whereas, if you look at the Toshiba player, it is subsidized as the Blu-ray standalone players are not, so your really not giving an honest and accurate statement when you look at the comparison. If you want to be accurate compare the cost of the subsidized Toshiba with the subsidized, they are the same, wow go figure. 499, and the PS3 will sell in the millions, not thousands and play games, and have USB ports, and have and have a gigabit ethernet port, and output 1080i/1080P. Id call that real interesting hardware. HDMI 3 DOUBLES BANDWIDTH, DELIVERS BILLIONS OF COLORS FOR HDTVs High-Definition Multimedia Interface Also Adds Newest Digital Audio Formats, Mini Connector and Lip Sync SUNNYVALE, Calif. , June 22, 2006 The seven HDMI Founder companies Hitachi, Ltd. , Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. , Ltd. Panasonic, Royal Philips Electronics, Silicon Image, Inc. , Sony Corp. , Thomson, Inc. and Toshiba Corp. today released a major enhancement of the High-Definition Multimedia Interface HDMI specification, the de facto standard digital interface for high definition consumer electronics. HDMI 3 will enable the next generation of HDTVs, PCs and DVD players to transmit and display content in billions of colors with unprecedented vividness and accuracy. The HDMI 3 specification more than doubles HDMIs bandwidth and adds support for Deep Color technology, a broader color space, new digital audio formats, automatic audio/video synching capability lip sync, and an optional smaller connector for use with personal photo and video devices. The update reflects the determination of the HDMI founders to ensure HDMI continues evolving ahead of future consumer demands. The update arrives at a time of strong momentum for the HDMI standard. HDMI Licensing, LLC today announced that more than 400 makers of consumer electronics and PC products worldwide have adopted HDMI. Market researcher In-Stat expects 60 million devices featuring HDMI to ship in 200 PLAYSTATION3 will be the most advanced computer platform for enjoying a wide range of entertainment content, including the latest games and HD movies, in the home, said Ken Kutaragi, president and group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc. By introducing the next-generation HDMI 3 technology, with its high speed and deep color capabilities, PS3 will push the boundaries of audiovisual quality to the next level of more natural and smoother expression on the latest large flat panel displays.

We look forward to continuing to work with other HDMI Founder companies to extend the scope of HDMI across new devices and applications, while remaining entirely committed to ensuring full backward compatibility with existing products. With the adoption of Deep Color and the xvYCC color space, HDMI 3 removes the previous interface-related restrictions on color selection. The interface will no longer be a constraining pipe that forces all content to fit within a limited set of colors, unlike all previous video interfaces. New HDMI 3 capabilities include: Higher speed: HDMI 3 increases its single-link bandwidth from 165MHz 95 gigabits per second to 340 MHz 2 Gbps to support the demands of future high definition display devices, such as higher resolutions, Deep Color and high frame rates. In addition, built into the HDMI 3 specification is the technical foundation that will let future versions of HDMI reach significantly higher speeds.
