TV's next generation may come from China

At last month's IFA 2012 electronics show in Berlin, one of the biggest head-turning products was from China-based TCL Multimedia. The company introduced the Ice Screen, a 26-inch Android-based smart display that reportedly offers the functionality of a tablet while aiming to capture the changing TV viewing habits of the youth market. It will debut in China as part of a partnership with Chinese Internet provider Tencent as the world's first large screen mobile intelligent cloud product. Just don't call it a television. "It is a 26-inch large display," says Hao Yi, general manager of TCL Multimedia Emerging Market Business Center. "It is not just for TV, as the younger generation doesn't watch TV like the older generation." While the vast majority of its business still comes from China, TCL has also looked to expand into the international TV market. The company just released its monthly sales volume for August of LCD TVs, reporting a 38.7% total year-on-year increase, with a marked increase of LED backlight LCD sets specifically. In its overseas market TCL reported an increase of 36.5% year-on-year, with notable expansion in emerging markets.

Arkansas Integrator Develops Voice Command Interface via iPhone's Personal Assistant

Homeowners in Little Rock, AR, are learning that there’s an easier way to control their electronic systems: just talk to them. They are asking their home systems to do what they want in a normal voice with everyday language, using commands like “turn on the lights in the kitchen,” “turn on the TV,” or “set the temperature to 70 degrees.” Thanks to an Apple Siri interface for Crestron control systems, developed by Matthew Carnes, president of Little Rock-based Carnes Audio Visual (CAV), the system will follow almost any simple command spoken into an iPhone, and then let you know when the action has taken place.“I thought it would be an interesting challenge to see if I could interface Siri with a Crestron processor,” he said. A couple of overnight programming sessions, and he had a working interface, which he then installed in the CAV showroom. He began offering the system to customers in January, and he now has two completed installations with a third in the works.
