Keynote Expands Event Attractions Which Include New Digital Health and Fitness Program
The persistent rumor of an Apple-branded TV was sparked once again with a rumor from multiple sources. The tips from San Francisco Bay area contacts for Alsop Louie Ventures didn't say much more than that it would most likely run iOS and with an aim for 2012. Co-founder Stewart Alsop explained to VentureBeat that he was on the boards of Sonos and TiVo and was connected to the hardware field. He speculated that Apple was mostly held back by the costs of LCD panels. Rumors of a full Apple TV, not just today's media hub, have been persistent for years and have in some cases been projections of desires more than reality. Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster has long called for an Apple TV set but has only now begun claiming sources at Apple and the supply chain that suggest Apple might be moving forward. A tentative separate report also mentioned a new TV video delivery method in the works at Apple.

New motion enabled remote control creates opportunities for Cable, Satellite & IPTV Operators to enhance Digital TV services
As it becomes more and more difficult to sell TVs at premium prices, manufacturers are coming up with new features they hope will entice customers. Sharp Corp. says its new Freestyle Aquos line of liquid crystal display TV sets, unveiled Thursday, are not bound by the location of the aerial plug, thanks to a tuner that can wirelessly send broadcast signals to a TV elsewhere in the house. “For people wanting to move around all the furniture and freely design their homes, the TV has been a bottleneck,” said Keiko Okada, a Sharp executive in charge of design and branding strategy at a press conference.Sharp’s new TVs represent the latest attempt among television makers to differentiate their product lineup, in a search for an alternative to cutthroat price competition that has been crimping TV earnings at most major electronics makers world-wide for the past few years. In 2009, for example, Samsung Electronics mass-produced light emitting diode-backlit TV sets ahead of rivals. When 3-D TVs debuted in early 2010, the industry hoped the new feature would create a more profitable market segment, but 3-D TVs soon became part of the relentless price competition plaguing the industry. In October, Sony Corp. released new Internet-enabled TV sets that run on Google Inc.’s software, and the so-called “smart TVs” with built-in processors and operating software became one of the major themes at the annual Consumer Electronics Show in January.

More consumers with cable, satellite or telco TV services have downgraded their services in the last year -- and more are on the way. Dallas-based researcher Parks Associates says 13% of consumers who have broadband connections have made cutbacks within the last 12 months -- with another 9% to come. The study says this includes some 3.9 million people who regularly watch Internet video. These "downgraders" or "cord shavers," who typically spend $20 or less on monthly video services, are heavy TV users. They watch, on average, 4.2 hours of Internet video on their TV each week. Parks Associates says the growth of downgraders is more closely linked to the growth of broadband adoption than watching more Internet video.
