  • HDTVs take center stage at CES 2013 The stars this year at CES 2013 are big, beautiful HDTVs. All the big names have gotten into the mix, displaying updates to their current lines as well as showing drool-worthy prototypes featuring hot technology not yet released to consumers. The sets range from B&O Play’s sexy looking—and sounding—BeoVision 11 HDTV, to numerous 4K Ultra-HD offerings that feature four times the pixels of standard HD sets.

  • Sharp Quattron 8-Series 3D LED TVs Sharp skimped a bit on the 4K front at CES 2013 (the company did have prototypes on display but nothing available for consumers) but did showcase some impressive 1080p sets in its high-end Aquos Quattron 8 3D LED line. Available in 60-, 70- and 80-inch sizes, the HDTVs in the new Quattron 8 series feature 240Hz refresh rates, built-in Wi-Fi and browsers that support Flash and HTML5. Sharp also managed to shrink the bezels on these huge TVs and said it enhanced the displays' contrast and brightness.

  • New Panasonic Viera HDTVs Panasonic announced a bevy of new Viera HDTVs at CES 2013 (32 of them to be exact), all featuring the company’s new Smart TV personalization features. Specifically, My Home Screen is a function that lets each family member create a custom home screen on the TV for quick access to their own content. Sets with cameras built in can actually identify who’s watching TV and display the right start page. Panasonic said the 32 new sets will be split evenly between plasma and LED, with screen sizes available up to 65 inches.

Available in 55-, 65- and 70-inch models, the Vizio XVT TVs feature 4K displays. The company says they can upscale standard HD movies and games to the ultra-high resolution format while we wait for content providers to supply 4K content.

  • Cisco Videoscape Unity Fans of the science fiction movie Minority Report will think Cisco’s Videoscape Unity setup looks awfully familiar. The technology is a template that integrates DVR, on-demand, Web, and social network content with traditional cable TV services onto one interface. The real kicker here is the sci-fi-esque video wall that the setup can be viewed on, as demonstrated by Cisco at this year’s CES. While we can’t expect the technology to be available to consumers in the near future, Videoscape Unity is an interesting

  • Samsung S9000 Are 55- and 65-inch 4K HDTVs still not big enough for you? Then check out the oversized S9000 from Samsung. The biggest S9000 measures in at a crazy 110 inches, and it can convert standard HD content to ultra-high-def 4K format. Top it all off with an array of speakers built into the TV’s frame for what Samsung calls an immersive audio experience. No word on price for this monster yet, but it’s safe to assume it’ll be about as much as a new car.

  • B&O Play - BeoVision 11 Products from B&O Play are known for being attractive and great sounding—as well as expensive—and the new BeoVision 11 HDTV does not stray from that mold. The BeoVision 11’s 240Hz LED-based LCD screen can handle both 2D and 3D content. A nifty 360-degree Automatic Picture Control feature detects ambient light in the room to adjust the TV’s brightness and contrast. Media streamers can delight too, as the BeoVision 11 supports DLNA media streaming and the new Send to TV feature from YouTube. There’s even a dedicated cupboard behind the set for storing an Apple TV box. To top it all off, you’ll be able to enjoy all that content on dual 3-way speakers, powered by six amplifiers. The BeoVision 11 is available now in 40, 46, and 55-inch sizes.
