CES 2010: TVs, HD and 3D dominate

As predicted, the annual Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas 3D hogging the timelight, but there was plenty more TV tech to get excited about, too

The agenda for the year in AV was once again set at CES in Las Vegas, as all the big hitters in the industry gathered show off their wares and trumpet the technologies of the future.

Of course it's not all TVs and 3D (though it's fair to say that's a considerable chunk) so turn to p26 to get the lowdown on the top 10 technology titbits for the next 12 months.

Still, there's no denying that television dominated proceeding. The likes of LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sharp and Sony all have a wealth of TV products on the horizon.

Expect the next generation of flatscreen of TVs to be super-slim yet ultra-connected, with wireless internet bringing apps for Skype and Twitter to your TV.

LED will continue to muscle in on traditional LCD screens, while OLED lurks on the horizon, and Freeviews HD will join Freesat HD in the world of non-subscription, high-def. Oh, and did we mention 3D? The screens and the content are on their way.

LG's new sub-brand Infinia will hope to enter our consciousness in the same manner as Bravia and Viera. The top-of-the-range LED series boasts local area dimming from sets just 23mm in depth, as well as 480Hz motion processing. Half of the staggering 70 TVs set for release will boast Freeview HD, while the LD360 will be LG's first 3DTV.

Panasonic's American range of sets was similarly well-endowed, with as many as 203 DTVs set to be released this year. 

They'll be joined by LED-backlit screens, too. Panasonic has also grabbed a number of the engineers responsible for Pioneer's legendary Kuro range - promising news for its 2010 range.

Samsung will bring the world's first HD app store offering free and paid-for-TV applications. The initial raft will include apps for eBay, Facebook, Netflix and YouTube among others. 3DTVs and Samsung's thinnest ever sets, at 23mm, will also arrive.

Sharp, meanwhile, eschewed 3D in the main, focusing instead on the company's new QuadPixel technology.  Adding a fourth primary color to sets - "RGBY" - the TVs promises more than a trillion colors.

Last, buy by no means least, is Sony. There's a new "monolithic" design for a host of wi-fi enabled TVs, 75 per cent of which will have Freeview HD tuners. There'll be plenty of 3D TVs as well as sets with integrated BD and DVD players. It certainly looks set to be an exciting year in the world of TV...

What I love most about LCDs, HDTVs and Plasmas is that they support gaming
suitably, because as for video output, most of them are good.
