High Frame Rate Technology: Coming Soon to a Theater Near You

The move to HFR really is the future of movies, for everyone from the visionary directors to the audiences making entertainment decisions on a Friday night. HFR will raise visuals to a quality never seen on the biggest screens, and likely muzzle many of the naysayers who highlight the performance flaws - like strobing and judder - in current 3D cinema, and generally dismiss 3D cinema as a passing fancy.

Improving Video Quality with ClearView

Streaming of videos is growing at a dramatic rate. While the quality is typically acceptable on a mobile device, when displayed on a large screen with technologies such as AirPlay, Miracast, MHL, etc. Compression artifacts and inadequate resolution result in a poor picture. Silicon Image is aiming to lend a hand in the quality department with ClearView

Home Theater in a Box Redefined by WiSA Systems

Home Theater in a Box systems are either dedicated, limited feature systems, or often the lowest-end receiver and speaker combination a manufacturer has to offer. These are attractive to many, as an "easy" route to sound that exceeds those tinny speakers in the ever-slimming TV. The Wireless Speaker and Audio (WiSA™) Association promises a more practical, scalable, wireless- yet-audiophile-quality solution.

Sanus CFR2136 AVRack

I've used Sanus flat screen mounts for quite some time. At CEDIA 2012, I saw their new Component Series AV racks for the first time and was pretty impressed. The build quality is good and the price is very attractive. As such, they'll suit the pocket book of many DIY installers and offer an opportunity for improved margins for the ever-squeezed custom installer.

The Cloud Success, Residue is All Your Fault

OMG someone suddenly discovered that cloud storage isn't you know... up there! And they aren't soft, fluffy, light. In fact they aren't really terribly efficient. But as long as their energy-sucking tilt-up buildings aren't in your backyard it's okay. In defense of the folks running them they're trying to make them more environmentally friendly. But still if you're going to put your most precious, most sensitive, most irreplaceable documents, data, images there you've also got that "little" problem of hackers, whackers, cybertheives going where they can have a better ROI (return on investment) for their labor. We all have to use the cloud - heck we're using it even when we don't realize it - but it's a lot like eating...use a little common sense.
