Samsung Hikes HDTV

November 11, 2005 | Ibex Marketing

Last week, Samsung announced a deal with the National Football League that makes Samsung's products the "Official HDTV of the NFL." Samsung products have good coverage of HDTV display technology, including LCD, plasma, and rear-projection DLP HDTV models. This move makes a lot of sense. Samsung has long used professional sports alliances as part of their marketing strategy. Sports are one of the main reasons that people get HDTV systems,...

Texas Instruments continues to dig for display gold on the high-speed race tracks around the country. Yesterday, the company announced a marketing agreement with the International Speedway Corporation that will make DLP HDTV products the official high-definition television at race tracks including Daytona, Taladega, Darlington, and Watkins Glen.

It was gorgeous, and it will be available for a list price of about $21,000.

HDTV: Love and Loathing on the Big Screen

October 3, 2005 | Ibex Marketing

Last month, Brillian announced its 6580iFB 65-inch 1080p rear-projection LCoS television. I have seen it, and it looks gorgeous. Brillian has had a bit of a hard time building headway in the market — their deal to provide Sears with products for last year’s holiday season fell through — but their displays have always been impressive. Their press release for this announcement quotes Raymond Soneira of DisplayMate Technologies: “We conducted...
