Pioneer is building more bridges to Apple products in its mainstream A/V receiver (AVR) series. Four new mainstream-series A/V receivers include the company's first three AVRs certified by Apple to connect and charge an iPad (starting at $349), first A/V receiver with Apple's Air Play wireless audio-streaming technology (starting at $549), and first model (at $549) compatible with the new iControlAV2 app, which turns iPads, iPhones and iPod Touches into full-function remotes that control all features of the company's networked A/V receivers and Blu-ray players. The company promises to include the new Apple features in the rest of the A/V receivers that it will launch in the spring and summer, citing the high percentage of Pioneer AVR owners who own Apple products. More than 62 percent of Pioneer AVR owners own an Apple product, with 49 percent owning at least three Apple products, the company said. Twenty-six percent own an iPhone.
Facebook took some air out of the Netflix balloon when it announced its own movie streaming media service Tuesday. Working with Warner Brothers Digital Distribution, Facebook is testing a video service that will let users rent movies for $3, or 30 Facebook credits. The first installment of the trial is the 2008 Batman movie The Dark Knight, and users can have access to the rental for 48 hours. The move was not welcomed by Netflix investors who see Facebook's 600 million-member social media site as a formidable challenge to company's $8-a-month video streaming efforts. Netflix shares fell more than 4% to $199.30 in early trading Tuesday. Given Facebook's immense reach and the apparent ease at which it can keep users on the site while they watch movies, the move certainly threatens the Netflix model. Not only does Facebook give the studios access to its vast membership, it can also deliver advertisers a big group of consumers with shared interests.

Stewart Filmscreen Corporation® is announcing its participation in the RealTime UnReal installation commissioned by the Museum of the Moving Image. The exhibit, RealTime UnReal, designed by Thomas Soetens and Kora Van den Bulcke of Workspace Unlimited, utilizes Stewart Filmscreen's Silver 5D material to demonstrate the pinnacle of modern 3D i capabilities. The installation addresses the fusion of physical and digital space, employing 2 stereoscopic projections on a double-sided projection screen and game engine software customized by the artists, capturing visitors in the physical space and displaying them in an imaginary world. The virtual world seems to occupy physical space like a sculpture in the museum, an alternate reality floating in midair. Walking around the virtual world alters its viewpoint, reveals impossible perspectives and simultaneous occurrences, and disrupts its architecture. Realtime Unreal challenges visitors to bridge the gap between what their eyes perceive and what their minds believe is unreal. "Stewart Filmscreen's Silver 5D screen was a essential component to the exhibit due to its wider viewing cone and increased center to edge brightness uniformity," stated Thomas Soetens, Director/Leading Artist of Workspace Unlimited. "The RealTime UnReal exhibit is an immersive, interactive display that encourages visitors to walk around the screen making the ability to have 3D off-axis viewing a necessity for the success of the project."

Audiovox completed its acquisition of Klipsch Group for $166 million. As a wholly owned subsidiary of Audiovox, Klipsch Group will operate as a stand-alone entity that will continue to be run by its current management team in its current Indianapolis headquarters, Audiovox said. Audiovox expects the addition of Klipsch to generate about $170 million in additional net sales and $25 million in EBITDA in fiscal 2012, which started March 1 of 2011. Revenue for the combined companies in fiscal 2012 will be around $730 million "with potential upside for growth based on market conditions and continued execution of strategic growth initiatives," the company added. Audiovox president/CEO Patrick Lavelle said the acquisition of Klipsch's worldwide properties "gives us entre into the high-end installation market at both the residential and commercial level." In addition to its top market position in the U.S., "Klipsch brands are recognized throughout EMEA, the Americas, and the Asia-Pacific region, and we plan to continue expansion into other key international markets." Lavelle continued. He also said Audiovox intends to continue to support Klipsch's R&D capabilities and its quality reputation, both of which he described as "second to none." The purchase was financed through Audiovox cash and a new $175 million asset-based revolving credit facility.
