LG Cinema Beam shortthrow laser projector and 100inch screen released in Korea

One of LG’s more surprising product introductions at CES 2013 was its “HECTO” laser projector, which — when combined with its accompanying 100-inch screen — is capable of tossing a 1080p image from just 22-inches away. While we’d heard it’s coming to the US in March, the projector is out in Korea today branded Cinema Beam TV, available for those ready to drop 9 million won (,322) on the package. It has a claimed 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and can accept video via WiDi or Miracast for wireless streaming from a PC or mobile device, while LG also says its laser light source is eco-friendly thanks to a mercury free design and extra long lifetime. The price tag is said to be around K when it ships here, apparently the company feels its unique capabilities make it a perfect fit for commercial installations like sports bars, or just high-end home theater customers that value its small footprint.

VLC 1.1 released, adds hardware acceleration and new codec support

Sunday, July 4th, 2010

VLC 1.1 was just released, adding hardware acceleration on Windows Vista, 7, and Linux (no mention of the Mac just yet), along with a general 40 percent speed boost from a massive code cleanup. A new add-on and script framework now enables extensions, which should lead to some interesting additions, and the VP8 and MEPG-4 lossless codecs have been added, along with container support for MKV HD and Google’s open-source WebM format. We just gave it a quick try and things certainly do seem to perform as advertised — hit the source link for the download.
