Sony X85 65-inch flat panel 4K TV

Got a 4King big TV? Ready to stream lots of awesome video? Yeah, about that…

While electronics giants are showing off their internet-connected 4K TVs, most people still do not have the web bandwidth to stream stuff in ultra high-def. That's the conclusion reached by the latest quarterly report [PDF] from internet backbone-manipulation outfit Akamai, which shows that only about 12 per cent of netizens …

The future of cinema and TV: It’s game over for the hi-res hype

Feature Digital video guru and author of The MPEG Handbook, John Watkinson, examines the next generation of TV and film and reveals it shouldn't be anything like what we're being sold today.

H.264 image scaling

Never mind your little brother - happy 10th birthday, H.264

Feature As technology advances, video codecs come and go naturally enough. But while H.265 is still waiting in the wings, we should pay tribute to the groundbreaking H.264, which is a decade old this month. H.264 is possibly not the snappiest or most memorable name, but even 10 years on it remains an important video coding standard, …

In a mobile data eating contest, Brits would win - Ofcom

UK shoppers have broken the £1,000-a-year mark by £83, compared to Aussies, who spend an average of £842 a year and the Swedes, who pay out £747. In fact, Brits like to shop online so much, they can't even stop themselves …

Philips 42PFL7666 42in 3D LED Smart TV

Review Philips spent much of 2011 on the periphery of the televisual market, bereft of Freeview HD tuners and dogged by confusion over its long-term ambitions, having off-loaded its TV business into a joint venture. But things are off to a better start in 2012. Philips 42PFL7666 Smart TV Collaborative effort: Philips' 7000 series …

Apple IP details tech for 'iTV' innards

Apple was granted a further 19 US patents to its colossal archive of intellectual property this week, with the standout blueprint sure to be related to its rumoured 'iTV' product. The new IP deals with display tech for large screen LCDs: FFS. No, that wasn't a pent-up expletive burst of frustration over Cupertino's patenting …

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX923 55in 3D TV

Sony Bravia KDL-55HX923 55in LED 3D TV

Review The KDL-55HX923 is a remarkable Freeview HD TV for many reasons. It’s humungous for one, measuring 148cm diagonally. It’s also overflowing with image technology and network niceties, as befits a flagship product. Even from a design standpoint, this set knocks the ball out of the park. Sony Bravia KDL-55HX923 55in 3D TV A …

Panasonic DMR-HW100 3D-compatible DVR

Panasonic DMR-HW100 HDD DVR

Review Panasonic returns to the UK DVR market after an abortive early foray, with a 3D-enabled, media-streaming TV recorder. Rather more convincing than the brand’s first generation model, the DMR-HW100 offers access to the online VieraCast portal, has jukebox functionality and is only slightly bonkers. Panasonic DMR-HW100 3D- …

Philips 21:9 Cinema 58in LED backlit TV

Review How much do you like your movies? Enough to spend £4,000 on a telly? If so, you’ll find the new 21:9 ratio TV from Philips to be very good value. Not only does it give you the best way to watch widescreen movies in close to native proportions, it has some of the best image quality yet seen. Plus Ambilight, oh and outstanding 3D …

Aavara PCE122 HDMI extender

Review Ever fancied watching a Blu-ray movie in the garden? Always wondered what it would be like to isolate your Xbox 360 so you could hear the gameplay over the sound of the jet engine Microsoft calls a DVD drive? Many of us would probably like to, but 50 metre HDMI cables tend to go for £300 apiece – not exactly what you'd describe …

Hacker warning over internet-connected HDTVs

Internet-connected HDTVs could be used by hackers to infiltrate home networks, according to a firm that markets device security software for smartphones, VoIP devices and TVs. Mocana's not-exactly-disinterested warning follows tests by the firm on a range of inter-connected TVs, during which a security flaw was discovered in …

Sony sells Playstation-packing TV

The Sony Bravia KDL-22PX300 is a 22in LCD TV with a built-in PS2, which allows users to play classic games and watch DVDs. Old Playstation titles still play …

Sony 46EX403

Sony Bravia KDL-46EX403 46in LCD TV

Review Freeview HD TVs are fairly common these days, and Sony has put the necessary DVB-T2 tuners in most of the models in its range. The Bravia KDL-46EX403 is, as far as these things go, one of its budget models – it lacks the LED backlighting of the higher end units, which in turn makes it bulkier and less sexy, though from the front …
Philips 32PFL9705 Ambilight TV

Philips 32PFL9705 Ambilight 32in LED backlit TV

Review Ambilight, the curious multi-coloured backlighting effect exclusive to Philips, is a remarkable thing. It doesn’t suit every programme – do you really want splashes of colour on the wall around the TV when you’re watching sombre announcements on the news? – but for entertainment it is an impressive, immersive addition. Philips …

John Lewis JL22LCD HD

Review John Lewis may have some odd traditions, such as the one about the chairman being the only person in the partnership allowed to write in green ink, but the posh store has also long been popular with canny TV buyers. Besides a decent selection of tellies, the other reasons are because of the company’s price match promise and free …
