They haven't had a booth in what, 3 or 4 years, maybe even more?
It is disgustingly thin, you actually have to triple take/look at it to believe it is that thin
I'm on the other side of the country right now. I wish I were too, I could use a good beer and comrade.
I want one of those puppies, sweet and matches the rest of my decor...
So how many years do you think it will take for a 55" oled set to become remotely affordable (i.e. under $1500) for the masses?
While really cool... The current led thickness is thin enough for almost all home applications, and mst commercial ones.
So these will never sell enough to lower their price...
Just my opinion
Do you consider the picture quality/brightness/color vs LED/LCD sets to be significant enough to warrant a 100% price premium? 200% premium? Just curious on your opinion, since you have seen it (I am guessing).
Here's a look at the general market MOCA adaptor shown in the Entropic booth. Like a Directv DECA adaptor in performance, this version is for the general market.
Meaning one can purchase it and add capability to a home non-Directv system.
And it's gorgeous- more like artwork than a working TV set. The back is silvered, though that could be for the show only. My connection at my motel is worse than dialup, so I don't know if even this post will make it through. Pix tomorrow of the LG (Stuart posted one I sent him on the Sammy)
They chose (several years back) to exhibit with abooth at CEDIA instead. That said, they always have folks at strategic places and with strategic partners on the ground at CES. We'll be seeing several DirecTV people later today.
Cool beans (as Rich would say).
As we know, this is a prototype only at the booth, but in response to an earlier post - yes - the "insides" of DECA are quite small, so the next generation units could also be smaller than current models. We'll get more lowdown on this at our scheduled meeting with the Entropic folks later today.
Looking forward to seeing you there again sir.
I wonder if the OLED will trump the price of Sharp's ELITE?!?
What's this, Geek porn photos? :lol:
More from Entropic ... 1/11/2012 press release ...
Entropic Communications Powers the Pace HR34 Home Media Center HD-DVR for DIRECTVhttp://ir.entropic.com/releasedetail.cfm?ReleaseID=638599
Most of the news thus far has been RVU related.
Also from the Entropic booth, a C30-700. That's the unit on the bottom. Info is sketchy on if and when it will be released. Not even a *soon*.
The smaller router looking unit on top of it is a MOCA adaptor from Actiontec. Not necessarily for Directv. It is apparently a smart adaptor so it can be added to any system. Meaning if a CATV system, it sees traffic below 1 GHZ and puts MOCA traffic above that frequency.
If it were to be added to a Directv system, it pushes the MOCA traffic below 1 GHZ. It has 4 ports on back to connect to a router or other device. I was told two of these are needed in a system.
Looking forward to running into the CES dbstalk gang later today.
C30 in the picture looks to be similar in size to an H25
Perhaps it will fit in an H25 wall mount bracket??
Thanks for the pics
Well, I see it... the question is whether or not I'll ever see it in my home.
Power over coax?
Is it dual band?
Yet the HR34 appears neither MoCA nor RVU certified.
The RVU Alliance CES 2012 press release does note that the Samsung LED 6000, 6400 and 6420 series sets have been certified.
Now that I can post both photo and explanation, here is one of the Sammy OLED, er, the "Super" one. The odd image in the center near the top is because you're seeing a reflection on the back of the front most set. That reflection is from a set to the rear, but the angles are such that you couldn't figure out what was what without a bit of info.
I tried to get my hand or a pen in view to show perspective, but it was too crowded then. I will try again.
You guys and all of your acronyms. For the less enlightened, what is RVU? Remove Viewing XXXX?
