Casio Replaces Painters with Digital Art Frame

Posted by | Last Updated : 1716 days ago

Casio is kicking off the new year with a Digital Art Frame, that can take an ordinary photo and transform it into a work of art. Utilizing a “snapshot-to-painting conversion” function to render digital photographs into creative and personalized artistic expressions, Casio’s digital art frame is unlike any conventional digital photo frame on the market.

The 10.2-inch WSVGA LCD frame lets users apply the kinds of graphic filters found in Photoshop, emulating several styles of drawing and painting. With the push of a button, users can make their photos look like water color paintings, color pencil sketches, pastels, oil paintings, air brushings, gothic oil paintings, fauvist oil paintings or works of pointillism (bonus points if you can identify each style in front of house guests). According to Casio, the brains of the frame go a bit beyond simpler image processors by combining the art effects with Casio’s facial recognition technology to ensure faces don’t disappear in a blur of blobs. It will also go beyond merely displaying photos with support for Flash Lite content, such as clocks and calendars.
Another neat feature is Dynamic Photo, already found in Casio’s digital cameras. Dynamic Photo automatically crops subjects out of one photo for superimposing on another. A moving image can then be created by combining several of these composite photos.
The product will be available in the spring. It has a 10.1-inch screen, two gigabytes of memory, an SD memory card slot, stereo speakers, and a power-saving display that turns on when someone approaches the screen

REVIEW 11 December 2010

1rev Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor
Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor review on Cnet
“The Magic Angle mode prevents the screen from darkening when viewed from certain angles. Magic Angle has four settings: Lean Back Mode 1, Lean Back Mode 2, Standing Mode, and Side Mode. Switching to each mode will improve screen brightness when viewing the monitor from that angle. For example, after switching to Lean Back Mode 2 and then sitting back in your chair to play a game, the screen doesn’t darken nearly as much, and as a result, game details can still be seen, while you do irreparable damage to your spine.”

Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor review onTechreviewSource
“The image quality through the DVI-D connection is very good and the color tones seemed extremely accurate and vivid. Screen brightness did seem slightly dim compared to other monitors, but nothing too noticeable. Contrast between light and dark areas were very detailed and looked great. Text looked very crisp with and without using Microsoft ClearType. There was also no observable ghosting or lag with fast-moving objects on the screen. The viewing angles on the PX2370 were pretty good with only slight darkening and color loss at very extreme angles.”

Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor review on DigitalVersus
“Given that Samsung makes the best hybrid monitors around with its P2x70HD series, we’re always a little disappointed to see such terrible upscaling in the brand’s other models. The PX2370 has obvious trouble controlling granular digital noise when playing DVDs. Once again, you’re better off relying on your DVD/Blu-ray player to take care of picture quality if you want to watch a film.”

Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor review on TrustedReview
“While the PX2370 thankfully omits speakers, it does feature top-of-the-line audio outputs which will carry audio from the HDMI source. In addition to the usual 3.5mm analogue audio jack that’s commonly found on many monitors for this purpose, you’ll also find a rare (at least for a monitor without TV aspirations) but very welcome digital optical output, meaning you can pass through perfect-quality 5.1 surround sound to an external speaker system.”

Samsung Syncmaster PX2370 premium LED monitor Review on PCAuthority
“Image quality isn’t perfect then, when the price is $50 more than the BenQ 24in, below. Spend a little more and you could get a quality IPS LCD. Alternatively, better image quality can be had on LCDs below $400. There’s no doubt that the Samsung is one cool, classy customer, but at this price, we’d simply expect better

LG Display develops world’s thinnest LCD TV panel

Posted by | Last Updated : 1734 days ago

LG Display Co. revealed a 2.6mm ultra-thin LCD Panel in the size of 42-inches marking with it the new world’s thinnest LCD display. The breakthrough panel was developed through the application of an ultra-slim, edge-lit light emitting diode (LED) backlight system and propriety optical film technology developed by LG Display
The LCD is around the 2.6mm thin panel that will weigh less than 4kg. It gives a better fit for wall-mounted TVs, and offers full HD resolution delivering crisp and sharp images. Consequently, you will need a separate box with the tuner and other TV electronics that is not fitting into the mm thin casing. LG Display said the new LCD panel will be showcased at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
