IKEA reinvents HDTV with Uppleva (video!)

IKEA Uppleva HDTV

IKEA is coming to the rescue of wives everywhere who are fed up with the endless mess of tangled wires in the living room with its Uppleva HDTV. Yes, IKEA is making it's own HDTV, and it's pretty wonderful. First, the tech: 1080p LED display, Wi-Fi-ready, 400Hz, FM radio, DIVX HD, with three USB inputs and four HDMI inputs as well. So, what makes this television so special? It's the fact that the actual display part is just that - a display. All of the goods are built into the surrounding furniture, which is also part of Uppleva. For example, the television also has a Blu-ray player built-in - but it's located beneath the monitor, in the console area. All the wiring is built into the furnite, so it's not visible.

You can add in your own components, of course, and the wiring is handled the same way, allowing everything to be neat and tidy. Also cool? There is a vast array of colors and designs. Uppleva is modular, so you can build it out in any way you see fit. Expect it to launch in the fall for 6,500 Swedish crowns (that's $960 to those of us in the USA.) Wanna get a peek at how it works? Check out the video after the break.

LG 55-inch OLED HDTV priced at $7,900, coming this May

Posted by Andrey Malskiy Categories: HDTV, Home Entertainment

LG 55

LG is ready to launch its first OLED HDTV in May during the Cannes film festival. The television set, which we first saw at CES, is priced at 9 million Won, or about $7,900, so this is definitely a premium product not meant for the masses. The company originally planned to launch the OLED TV during the London Olympics, but has expedited production in order to be the first one on the market with an OLED set at retail. Upon consumer reactions, LG will either continue its investment in the OLED market, or reexamine its direction. The internal review is said to take place in July.

Bleeding Edge TV 435: Sony Crystal LED HDTV

While LG and Samsung showed off their OLED prototypes, Sony was showing off its new 55-inch Crystal LED prototype at CES 2012. Its display sports what it calls "ultrafine" LEDs mounted to each RGB color, equal to the number of pixels, which is all attached directly to the front of the display. Sony says this results in 3.5 times contrast, 1.4 times the color gamut and 10 times faster response time than LCDs.

The "Crystal LED Display" is a self-emitting display that uses Sony's unique methods to mount ultrafine LEDs in each of the RGB colors, equivalent to the number of pixels. The RGB LED light source is mounted directly on the front of the display, dramatically improving the light use efficiency. This results in images with strikingly higher contrast (in both light and dark environments), wider color gamut, superb video image response time, and wider viewing angles when compared to existing LCD and plasma displays, with low power consumption.
