Philips recently introduced the ultra widescreen Cinema 21:9 LCD TV. It is actually the first LCD TV in the world that features a 56 inch screen with the 21:9 aspect ratio. The wide format means less action is cut off from movies filmed for theatre screens but since many movies are shot in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio you still wont be getting full screen action without some cut off. The Cinema 21:9 LCD TV will be available in Spring 2009. More detailed product specifications will be available at the end of February 2009.
The SC-ZT1 by Panasonic is a wireless home theater system that uses the 2.4GHz band to send uncompressed audio to all four speakers. The SC-ZT1 is somewhat unusual as its technically a 4.0 system--there are just the four, spindlelike speakers that each have four vertically aligned speakers within them, which the SC-ZT1 uses to create a virtual 7.1 surround sound effect. The SC-ZT1 lacks a dedicated, separate subwoofer but each speaker has an integrated subwoofer to fill in the low end. The SC-ZT1 is slated to be released in the spring, with pricing to be determined.
