LG will unveil the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio CURVED ULTRA HD TV at CES

Posted by Tech News On Thursday, December 26, 2013 0 comments
LG Electronics (LG) announced it will be unveiling the world’s first 21:9 aspect ratio CURVED ULTRA HD TV (Model 105UB9) at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. LG’s newest premium TV is also the company’s very first CURVED ULTRA HD model. The award winning groundbreaking 105-inch (measured diagonally) 105UB9 is officially the largest curved TV ever made.

This awe-inspiring TV offers magnificent picture quality and a wide viewing angle with the ability to render the minutest detail in breathtaking clarity to create an unprecedented level of viewer immersion. The 105UB9’s cinematically proportioned 21:9 CinemaScope screen is ideal for enjoying movies as they were meant to be enjoyed. Another advantage of the extra-wide screen is that it enables users to access viewing information on the side of the screen without blocking any of the ongoing action.

Boasting an 11 million pixel (5120 x 2160) screen resolution, the 105UB9 represents the successful collaboration between LG Electronics and LG Display. In order to realize the TV’s curvature, new technology was introduced to resolve a number of issues, such as maintaining structural integrity and delivering uniform color and brightness across such a large screen. Until now, OLED panels were preferred for curved displays due to their ability to generate their own light. LG Display overcame the challenge of uneven backlighting by refining its Thin Film Transistor (TFT) pixel circuit technology to prevent color leakage and to ensure a superior viewing experience from virtually any angle.

“LG Display has kept its dominant position in the display market with innovative and differentiated technologies,” said Yong-kee Hwang, Senior Vice President and head of LG Display’s TV Business Unit. “With a resolution of 11 million pixels, the 105-inch curved LCD panel is proof of our continued leadership in the next generation display market, offering exceptional world-class value to our customers.”

Visitors to LG’s booth at CES 2014 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall #8204) from Tuesday, January 7 through Friday, January 10 will have the opportunity to see this unique product for themselves.

“We’re proud to reveal our 105-inch CURVED ULTRA HD TV at the world’s largest technology event,” said In-kyu Lee, Vice President and head of the Home Entertainment Company’s TV division at LG Electronics. “Claiming the world’s first and the world’s largest titles, LG’s 105UB9 employs cutting-edge technology to provide a truly unique viewing experience. We will continue to drive the next generation TV market and demonstrate that with LG, it’s all possible.”

MUSE ES series bipolar audio capacitors at each channel layout. These professional audio capacitors deliver the highest quality sound resolution and expansion to create a true Hi-Fi audio experience.

Gold Audio Plated Hardware

KINGMAX Launches SME Xvalue for HDD-to-SSD Upgrade

Posted by Tech News On Friday, September 27, 2013 1 comments
For today’s PC users, high-performance, high-quality SSDs are increasingly the preferred choice. KINGMAX, a premium memory and Flash module manufacturer that serves the world market, is proud to introduce SME 32/35, the latest additions to its SME Xvalue SSD Series.

The SME SATA III 2.5” SSDs make a timely debut as many must be considering a replacement or upgrade of their HDDs. For most end users, performance is hardly the ultimate determinant for choosing between the two storage devices, empirical studies show. But they know SSDs are faster than HDDs and that the former does speed up their system both during booting and in operation.

An exceptionally attractive cost-performance ratio justifies SME as a bargain. This is especially the case with those who would rather go for a partial refresh as an across-the-board upgrade of their existing old devices seems hardly warranted. Pitted against comparable HDD counterparts, it stands out with an ultra-low cost per IOPS and extraordinary operational efficiency on the same measure of power consumption.

A highly efficient operating environment is readily put in place as SME delivers sequential read/write speeds of up to 540 MB/s and 300 MB/s respectively. Stability and reliability also top the list of SME 32/35’s strengths as their MLC NAND flash accords a life span three times that of TLC NAND flash.

SME 32 is designed for laptops and SME 35, desktops. Both available in capacities of 60GB/120GB/240GB, they support the SATA 3.1 interface and are protected by AES 256 encryption. On top of their extraordinary resistance against shock and vibration, noiseless operation also stands out as a key merit.

In addition to users yearning for a brand-new SSD experience, SME also deserve the consideration of system integrators who have a bill of materials to take into account. The products will be in the market in the beginning of October. Please keep you eyes on KINGMAX as usual.

SME meets all the major safety directives or requirements: CE, FCC, BSMI, RoHS. Users need not worry about product and system compatibility as both models support Windows 8 and other major OS platforms. Last but not least, KINGMAX offers a three-year warranty as a pledge of its commitment to customer service and product quality.

  • Support SATA 3.1 (6Gb/s)

BlackBerry launches new touchscreen phone Z30

Posted by Tech News On Thursday, September 19, 2013 0 comments
BlackBerry has officially unveiled its next-generation touchscreen smartphone as it ramps up attempts to claw back its share of the market.  Over the past year, BlackBerry has lost 7.5 per cent of its share in the UK to rivals Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
The BlackBerry Z30 comes with a 5-inch screen and the largest battery ever to be built into a BlackBerry handset, which the company claims makes the device last for around 25 hours.

Findings from market research firm Kantar Worldpanel ComTech show BlackBerry was the third most popular operating system this time last year.

However, the Candian-based firm now owns just 3.5 per cent of the share in the UK, down from 11 per cent. With the majority of rivals releasing full-touchsreen devices, BlackBerry has had to take a further step away from its trademark physical QWERTY design seen on previous models. The five-inch Super AMOLED Display is powered by a 1.7 GHz processor with quadcore graphics that 'makes browsing web pages faster and games more detailed.' BlackBerry's Z30 also has the firm's Priority Hub built in, which works in a similar way to the notification centres of Android and iOS but with more advanced features.  For example, the hub is said to be able to find and filter messages from a person's favourite contacts by 'learning what conversations and what people are important'.  In theory, the more a phone is used, the better the hub becomes at knowing which messages should be flagged and which can wait.  This includes post and messages across social networks.  BlackBerry Messenger conversations now appear in any app. Users can swipe to dismiss them, or click to open them in the BBM app. The new antenna on the BlackBerry Z30 is said to tune reception in low-signal areas to make sure the user gets the fastest speeds possible.  BlackBerry also claims that the new technology means fewer dropped calls.

Elsewhere, the handset has a 2880 mAh battery - dubbed 'the largest battery ever built into a BlackBerry smartphone' - and combined with battery enhancements made to the BlackBerry 10 OS version 10.2, is said to be capable of lasting up to 25 hours.

Carlo Chiarello, for BlackBerry, said: 'The new BlackBerry Z30 smartphone builds on the solid foundation and engaging user experience of the BlackBerry 10 platform with features like the powerful BlackBerry Hub, its exceptional touchscreen keyboard and industry leading browser.

The Z30 will be available from select networks and retailers in the UK and Middle East from the beginning of next week. It will then be rolled out to other regions before the end of the year.
