The slackers have the time live

Thats going to put pricing pressure on HD DVD Recorders as well as any other BD-Recorder. I now know what Sonys AVCHD camcorders cost and offer. More incentive for me to cut my silly spending and get my HDTV. Its definitely challenging, but she is so cut throat. She gets so worked up when the topic is politics, I fear sometimes she may have a heart attack she gets so heated. She gets it from my Grandfather, talk about a man whos not afraid to tell you what is on his mind! Anhow, on another note here is a bit of good news as Sony PlayStation 3 Production Has Begun Reports. Asustek Computer, one of the worlds largest producers of computer components, has reportedly begun to ship Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles to Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. The fact that the consoles are being manufactured means that the hardware specs had been finalized and the launch will take place in mid-November. The Chinese-language Apple Daily and Commercial Times newspaper reported late on Tuesday that Asustek Computer started shipments of PlayStation 3 PS3 game consoles in small volume in the beginning of July, according to DigiTimes web-site. According to a report, about 200 thousand component sets were shipped to Asus in June, which means that the company is in position to build 200 thousand game consoles. It is also said that in July the Taiwanese builder will receive higher amount of component sets for the PS3, while in September and October the company will get more than one million component sets. Sony promised to have 2 million PlayStation 3 consoles available during the launch window and ship 4 million PS3s worldwide by the end of 200 By March 2007 the company plans to supply 6 million game consoles to the market. Foxconn Electronics is also projected to build the new generation game consoles for Sony. However, the news-paper did not unveil any shipment schedules for the company, claiming that the company will start assembly operations when demand rises. Given that the PS3 is not on sale just now, the demand may only rise until the slackers have the time live the launch. The two versions of the PlayStation 3 game consoles for 499 and 599 will be launched on 11th of November in Japan and on the 17th of November in Australia, Europe, and other regions. secid2 Strong projected sales of Sony Corp. s pending PlayStation 3 video game console equipped with a Blu-ray Disc drive are expected to underscore upwards of 2 billion in revenue this year in the blue laser disc technology market. Anticipated sales of blue laser players, game consoles, PC drives and related media are expected to top 28 billion by 2010, according to technology research firm Santa Clara Consulting Group. Currently, the market seems to be preoccupied with the format battle between Blu-ray and HD DVD technologies. What is overlooked is the fact that a market is developing, and the opportunity is huge, said David Bunzel, managing director of SCCG. By 2010, blue laser disc player sales would total 4 billion and related movies contributing 3 billion in sales. Blue laser game consoles PS3 would contribute 6 billion in sales, and related games 10 billion in sales. Blue laser PC drives would generate 4 billion in revenue, and blue laser blank media 400 million in sales. High-definition content will be a central focus for companies in the consumer electronic, gaming, entertainment and PC industries for the next five years, Bunzel said. Blue laser disc technology is a critical component to the development of these markets. Can you beat your mother in debate? My mother is far too slippery. When my grandfather was alive it was fun to watch them argue because parents never like losing arguments to their children. When mine loses she merely adjusts reality to make the winner wrong!

HD DVDs dominance over Blu-Ray ; After suffering weeks of negative buzz over the slackers have the time live picture quality of its first-generation Blu-ray disc player, Samsung now says an internal scaler chip may be to blame. As reported earlier today by A/V magazine The Perfect Vision, Sony exec Don Eklund first brought the issue to Samsungs attention after noticing that the image quality produced by Samsungs BD-P1000 player not match the quality of the master tapes from which the Blu-ray titles were encoded. Samsung engineers later determined that the noise-reduction circuit in the players Genesis scaler chip was enabled, causing the picture to soften significantly. Though Samsung has yet to issue any formal statements regarding the apparent faulty chip, the companys senior vice president of marketing for its Audio and Video Products Group Jim Sanduski confirmed to The Perfect Vision that the company is working to fix the problem on future shipments of the BD-P1000, and also plans to issue a firmware upgrade to correct the problem on current players. Samsung is currently working to revise the default settings on the noise-reduction circuit in the Genesis scaler chip to sharpen the picture, Sanduski is quoting as saying. All future Samsung BD-P1000 production will have this revision and we the slackers have the time live working to develop a firmware update for existing product. As weve previously reported, some early adopters have experienced poor picture quality when using the recommended HDMI output on the Samsung player. Switching to component outputs has improved the image quality for these users, which could be a result of the component outputs bypassing the scaling chip. Though the launch of rival format HD DVD was not without its own glitches, reviews of that formats first-gen hardware and software have been largely positive. If a repaired chip in the Samsung BD-P1000 markedly improves picture quality from the deck, it could help close the perceived gap in quality that currently exists between the two formats. We will keep you posted on the latest developments in this story as it continues to unfold. So maybe some of the negatives weve been hearing dont have to do entirely to the choice of codec in MPEG2 or the Blu-ray disc themselves, but a little glitch from a chip in the Samsung. I for one, would like to hear some revised reviews of Blu-ray movies, once the firmware update is in place. It should make for an interesting comparison. Moreover, itll be interesting to see forthcoming players from Blu-ray backers that will support HDMI 3 with more colors and HD sound over the HDMI and how that will come into play in the quality of Blu-ray movies.
