Electronic House Magazine's panel of industry experts, integrators and editors selected the ATEN MDS as the most innovative "Video Distribution System."
Coming out of CES this year, one of the main stories was the debut of new "passive" 3D TVs, announced by companies including LG, Toshiba, and Vizio. One big promise of passive 3D is that you can wear lightweight, inexpensive polarized glasses like the ones you get in movie theaters, rather than the bulkier, more expensive active-shutter glasses required by current 3D sets. The first passive 3D TV to hit the market is Vizio's 65-inch VT3D650SV ($3,700), a 1080p LCD TV that uses an edge LED backlight. We bought a set as soon as it was available and recently completed preliminary testing in our TV labs. For purposes of comparison, we pitted the new Vizio set against Panasonic's top-rated TC-P65VT25 ($4,300) plasma 3D TV. It's no secret that we've so far found plasma to be a better technology for 3D, primarily due to the lack of ghosting, so we were curious to see how the Vizio passive set stacked up. In general, there is a lot to like about the VT3D650SV. For one thing, the polarized glasses are very comfortable to wear; they weigh just 0.7 ounces, so they felt very similar to wearing regular sunglasses. We also liked that you get four pairs of glasses with the TV, with additional pairs expected to cost from $10 to $30. That's a far cry from the $130 to $150 you have to shell out for active glasses. In addition, the passive 3D glasses dim the image less than any of the active-shutter glasses we've tried, enabling the Vizio to produce the most satisfyingly bright picture we've experienced when viewing 3D.

This year's ISE attracted a record 34,870 attendance to the Amsterdam RAI, representing a 22% increase on last year's figure. Mike Blackman, managing director, Integrated Systems Events, commented: "We have had a fantastic three days here in Amsterdam, our show aisles being packed with technology buyers and specifiers from the moment we opened on Tuesday morning to the doors closing at 6pm on Thursday." A total of 715 exhibitors, including 150 new companies, exhibited, representing an 11% rise on ISE 2010 - covering some 26,650 net square metres of floor space. "ISE has a distinctive European flavour but it is increasingly a forum for global business," Blackman said. "We have had substantial visitor growth from Russia, the Middle East, Africa and the Indian sub-continent, as well as modest but significant numbers of consultants and top-level integrators coming to us from Asia and North America for the first time."
