Drop in TV Ownership May Signal a Change In Consumer Electronics Purchases

Nielsen has a new report out showing that television ownership has dropped for the first time in 20 years. There are a few guesses at why this is the case, even in our TV-obsessed country, and it just might mean not only a shift in how we watch media but also on which gadgets we consume our favorite shows. TV ownership has dropped from 98.9% to 96.7%. It doesn't look like a huge drop, but the 2.2% represents about 1.2 million households that don't own televisions. There's a few possible reasons. First, Nielsen suspects that when the big switch to digital happened a couple years ago, many lower income families decided not to spend the bucks on a new television and instead are just going without. But another possibility is that with the rise of streaming shows and movies online, many people have decided a TV is just an unnecessary item.

Samsung builds 75-inch 3D TV

Samsung's flagship D9500-series 3D TVs are now available in Korea. For an estimated US$17,570, you'll get the world's largest 3D Smart TV bundled with a QWERTY remote. This massive 75-incher also sports a new "secret" design promising a larger-than-life 3D experience. While this is something yet to be proven, we do know this model is quite well-equipped out-of-the-box. The TV includes a Smart TV function, 240Hz-processing and an LED-edgelit panel with micro (local) dimming capability that promises to reproduce deeper blacks. Price-wise, do note that 60-inch and larger panels usually command a huge premium, especially for a 75-inch giant such as this. The D9500 is expected to launch in the second half of 2011 for the rest of Asia.

Study Finds Little Difference Between Active, Passive 3DTV Glasses

A new study by TCO Development found little difference between 3DTVs that use active shutter or passive glasses, at least when it comes to the visual experience. "As a certification body with a long history in the field of visual ergonomics for displays, it is important for TCO Development to evaluate the visual ergonomics of these new technologies and to assess any possible impacts on the user experience. TCO Development will further investigate the need of a TCO Certification for 3D," said Niclas Rydell, product and certification director at TCO Development. Cross-talk, or ghosting, was low for both types of glasses, though proper height and distance placement was more important for a set using passive glasses. White luminance was three times lower for active shutter glass sets compared with passive sets. And the lower resolution available for a passive 3DTV (1920-by-540 vs. 1920-by-1080 for active shutter) is noticeable, but not too much of a drawback, the study concluded.
