This week in San Jose is the annual Super Geek Display Conference. Scott says it's the display conference of the future. And one of those future display tech advancements is Electroluminescent Quantum Dots. It's like OLED but 10 times as bright. Read his article on AVSForum here.
Scott is in Vegas for CES and he's seen a ton of cool new home theater stuff. Sony has announced a new OLED TV in which the entire screen is a speaker, and LG has a cool new one called "The Wallpaper" TV because it's only 4mm thick and attaches to the wall with magnets. Scott says that 4K and HDR are all around at CES this year, and he says that Samsung is ahead of the game with color saturation and brightness. There was also a bunch of TVs that support voice command through Amazon Echo and Google Home. Plasma is all gone now. But Sony also introduced Cletus, a micro LED screen.
Scott went up to Petaluma while Leo was on vacation to calibrate his new 4K TV LG B6. He said that the colors were a bit off, especially in the reds and blues. Leo didn't notice that. Scott says that he wouldn't notice unless he had a "reference monitor" or professional colorimeter to see it. It could also be that the process used to calibrate it was flawed, which can happen from time to time.
