LDM Product Roundup – Vol 22 No 36

An incorrect detail in our recent article, ‘Canon Claims World’s Lightest DCI Projector‘, has been pointed out. The XEED 4K500ST in fact has higher-than-DCI-4k (4096 x 2160) resolution: it is actually 4096 x 2400, with a 17:9 aspect ratio.

An update for LG‘s WebOS 1.0-based (2014) TVs will be rolled out on 21st September. It is not a full update to WebOS 2.0 (LG Stresses Importance of Colour), but does include most features. These include My Channels, Quick Setting and Input Picker.

Portrait Displays is providing its Chroma Tune colour-control software for MSI‘s newest Prestige notebooks, as well as its Gaming and Workstation series models. Chroma Tune is being used in conjunction with MSI’s True Color Technology, to accurately control display colours and enable preset modes for different usage scenarios.

All of Samsung‘s 2015 UltraHD TVs (Series 6 to Series 9) will carry the CEA’s 4k UltraHD logo, the company has said.

Skyworth and Konka are soon to launch UltraHD OLED TVs in the China market, claims the Want China Times. Both manufacturers use panels from LG Display, and showed UltraHD OLED TVs at CES 2015 (CES 2015 Roundup). A date was not available for Skyworth’s launch, but Konka has apparently said that it is aiming for 1st October (Skyworth was showing UltraHD OLED TVs at IFA recently, but said that they were prototypes – TA).
