Harman, parent company of 15 brands, including JBL, Lexicon, and Mark Levinson says it plans to invest another $100 million to bolster its manufacturing and research capabilities in the People’s Republic of China. This new plan follows an initial investment phase of $75 million undertaken in 2007-2008 to establish manufacturing and R&D operations in Shanghai, Suzhou, and Shenzhen. As part of the latest investment plan, Harman will partner with the northern city of Dandong to create two new manufacturing operations with a total joint investment of some $50 million. From its new automotive electronics and audio systems operation in Dandong, Harman will conduct development, engineering, and manufacturing for the world’s leading automakers. To attract the R&D and manufacturing of Harman’s brands into the region, the City of Dandong will provide various incentives including infrastructure build-up. Harman is currently evaluating potential Chinese companies or test facility acquisitions for the remainder of its planned investment.

New Western Digital Media Player Offers Blockbuster On Demand

Western Digital Inc. Oct. 26 unveiled an updated media player that for the first time grants users access to transactional video-on-demand movies from Blockbuster. The WD TV Live Hub media center, which is available exclusively from Best Buy for $199.99, also features Netflix streaming, Pandora music, YouTube videos, Flickr photo sharing, AccuWeather.com, and MediaFly repurposed video podcasts from ESPN, CNN, NBC and MTV, among others. Media players, including devices from Roku, Seagate, and Netgear, among others, represent conduits linking the Internet with the television. With consumer electronics products such as connected HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players expected to be a key holiday retail item, standalone media players are increasing content selections, compatibility and hard drive capacity to remain competitive. Indeed, the WD TV Live Hub features 1TB storage capacity, two USB ports, HDMI connection and wireless connectivity (with separate adaptor). The customizable user interface enables personalization of screen backgrounds and user interface themes, as well as setting of favorites and content ratings. Standard wired or wireless USB keyboards can be used for text input for activities such as searches of local content and YouTube and Facebook interaction. “Connected media players are an exciting new category that is helping to redefine home entertainment,” said Wendy Fritz, SVP, computing, at Best Buy. During an Oct. 25 demonstration of the media center, Jeff Chen, senior product marketing manager for Western Digital, said the box is Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA) compliant, allowing it to communicate with most other connected devices found in living rooms. “So far people have been extremely impressed with it,” he said.

WallWizard's App to Control Motorized TV Mounts is Off the Wall

WallWizard, a relative newcomer in the TV mount world, has introduced a software application that permits remote control operation of the brand's motorized mounts from Apple iPad, iPod, iPhone via Wi-Fi, and Smartphones via Bluetooth. WallWizard's Control System is a 2-piece solution that consists of the brand's proprietary ControlWand software app which consumers download from App stores for $9.99, and a Wi-Fi / Bluetooth accessory that is available from authorized dealers at a selling price of $119.99. According to Sales and Marketing VP Craig Matthews, WallWizard is the first brand to offer such an application. One of the special features is a Gyro Mode, where the motion of the motorized mount duplicates the motion of the handheld device without having to push any additional buttons. In the Auto Mode, the mount can detect whether the TV is On or Off, and move the mount Up, Down, Left or Right. In the Manual Mode, the user can control the motion of the mount by pressing on the appropriate direction arrow. "Offering this type of next-generation motorized technology at prices as low as $149 sums up what our young WallWizard brand is all about, which is "More Mount for Your Money," added Matthews.
 In another example of innovation in the manual operation mounts, WallWizard's team of robotic engineers (the engineering is robotic, not the engineers) incorporate a cam mechanism that enables the TV to be swiveled or tilted using only a finger, creating less wear and tear on the TV and the viewer.
