Google wants to offer a pay TV service


Google has applied for licenses to provide pay-TV service to residents of Kansas City in the central United States, offering a pilot program in addition to their Internet service, according the newspaper The Wall Street Journal.

Fiber Google applications filed last week against the Public Service Commission of Missouri and the Kansas Corporation Commission to offer a pay TV service that would compete with Time Warner Cable and satellite television services in Kansas City .

The initiative, if approved by the authorities, will affect "a small region and will serve as an experiment, but has enormous potential because it can open the door to a new fundraising income from subscribers," the newspaper said.

The pay TV service would also allow Google to increase its advertising revenue.

For months rumors have circulated about Google's ambitions for Internet TV. The company has already laid the groundwork for such services, including data management center in Iowa that was down permits for satellite transmission.

From that data center, Google could save hundreds of channels of content on demand, so that customers request.

Samsung Get InTouch With Connected TV Upgrades


Samsung have revealed a product that could bring them further forward in the connected TV development stakes, as they team up with Skype to give potential customers a chance to use a ‘webcam’ chat service without the strains of picking up a laptop or walking to a computer.

Set to be released in March, the ‘Samsung inTouch’ is a ‘TV accessory’ that will attach to any HDTV set and enable integrated video, audio, and text chatting to any of the user’s ’Skype’ friends.

Sold with a TV webcam and product-specific keyboard, the inTouch is said to also be able to feature a general Internet browser and YouTube functionality. Other pre-packaged services on the inTouch include a selection of apps, built-in Wi-Fi, and 720p high-definition video output for the services, meaning that any HDTV set could now be transformed into a ‘smart TV’.

Samsung Techwin America’s sales and marketing vice-president Mike Palazzolo said of the device: “While internet connected HDTVs are now common, not every household gets to experience this fun and interactive feature, especially if they have an HDTV purchased just a few years ago. With the inTouch camera system, Samsung is now bridging the gap between this experience and those consumers who own HDTVs without networking capability.”

Listed as a 3-megapixel camera with a 30-degree ’tilt range’, the set, which has an RRP of $199.99 (£130), also allows picture-taking and sharing via both the camera and a USB slot. In running terms, the official user interface of the Samsung inTouch is a modified edition of the Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform.While it is not the first time that Skype have attempted a connected TV experience, will this new product bring video chat to new frontiers?

3DGO Video-On-Demand 3D App Launching For Connected TV


Although the jury is still out on 3DTV, the content keeps on coming. The latest 3D offering comes from technology provider Sensio. They are launching an online pay-on-demand 3DTV service called 3DGO!, launching in the spring.

The service will run as an app on connected 3DTV sets that support Sensio Hi-Fi 3D technology. Content wise, Sensio say they will be offering a range of programming from top movies to documentaries. The service will not be subscription based but users will pay rental fees that are said to be comparable to existing market costs.

Speaking about the service, Nicholas Routhier, president and CEO of Sensio said, “We know customers want more 3D content and easy/convenient access to it. This is exactly why we are launching 3DGO!. For the first time, consumers will get an easy access to the largest on demand 3D dedicated library directly from their 3DTV. 3DGO! is the simplest way to make a good use of any 3D TV.”

3DTV is not having the success expected by manufacturers and has not sold as many units as expected. In fact, the not so fancied connected TV is outselling 3DTV by a margin of two to one according to Parks Associates.

Sensio have not given any more details or an indication of which TV sets will run it, but the service is expected to be showcased at the CES show.

The 3D effect


In recent times it is not surprising to find in forums and blogs opposing views on the 3D and really brings added value to the gaming experience.

He has been following the arrival 3D TV market with the first titles to take advantage and Nintendo 3DS, when these discussions have begun to boil. I take the occasion to give my opinion.

A few months ago was not exactly convinced that 3D was an advance representative for the video game scene. Thought it would be a fad, which I after trying a while, deactivate forever.

Today, after having tried sporadically Playstation 3 games with 3D effect and conscientiously the new Nintendo handheld, I'm a convert. The 3D will be a standard in the future of the game, I think. I dwell a little, just a little more.

For me the 3D effect comes to be in just as good graphics. I mean, get a good graphic section greater immersion of the player and this justifies increasing the games look better and better and all (or almost) so we are happy as long as that section is accompanied by good gameplay, basically.

For the 3D effect brings out the feeling of immersion significantly. I will not go to fight me in these lines with the almost impossible mission of trying to describe the three-dimensional effect who has not tasted ever, but mostly manages to create an effect of depth on the screen making it almost a window into the world playable in some cases also achieved an effect that might otherwise be defined as elements which seem to 'get out' of the screen.

We could say that either game screen of TV or laptop is no longer a 'separating medium' to some extent become a means integrating the player. You feel less separated from the world of play when it is displayed in 3D.

Pilotwings playing can come to feel a sense of vertigo when flying over a cliff in a hang-gliding or risk and speed their way through a forest of firs. One feels in the game, there is' increased immersion. "

Virtual Boy in the optical apparatus is similar

But the three-dimensional effect has other benefits. A few minutes playing Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D or Pilotwings cited to calculate distances to check on jumps and attacks much more intuitive and simple, an important advantage for the player.

There is another issue that may be curious (or not) related to the controversy but said depth effect say that the player feels the game screen is amplified, which is larger than it really is not logically leaves to be a sensation but to me it is a small value of this type of technology.

Not everything is good. Against this added sense of immersion factors are inherent to the technology used could be defined as 'disrupting' the experience.

In the case of home consoles have the fact of using polarized glasses similar to those used in cinemas. To me a nuisance and that I do not wear corrective lenses, do not even want to think about the people who have to use both at once.

In the case of stereoscopic 3D using 3DS the problem is not minor, and is the only three-dimensional sensation is perceived in a small angle of incidence perpendicular to the screen.

At the time we take another angle to look no further use gyroscopic functions of the notebook, the effect is lost and the vision is perceived annoying. Finally, the 3D technology which is basically give a slightly different game for each eye (no longer the same as our eyes do at each moment, to capture two images of the brain together so that we can perceive the depth of field) logically from a need extra power on the machines that reproduce it.

The first example of the above we have in the DS has been given for the game Dead or Alive: Dimensions, on which he made clear that Tecmo 3D viewing result in a significant drop (up to 50%) rate frame so it recommended that at least in the online game where the slightest delay is paid with the life bar will turn off the effect. The same techniques with other beasts desktop and unaccountable Killzone 3 graphically as in 'two dimensions'.

This question has not done more than pay the user reviews that they would prefer that resources be devoted exclusively platforms to the improvement graph. If the question is 3D graphics power and I say ... both, but if there is a choice I prefer a small decline in performance after an improvement in the dive.

The DOA girls, better than real life ... in 3D?

The aforementioned problems, as I own the technologies and the power of the machines that run them, I have no doubt will be solved in the near future. TV manufacturers (Toshiba, Samsung) are already marketed 3D TV without glasses but apparently not yet offer the quality of viewing monitors with glasses and share certain problems with the screen 3DS about viewing angles seem to improve the naturalness of the experience considerably.

These incremental improvements in my opinion can lead to a future in which a monitor display in three dimensions to play or watch television or movie will be as natural as seeing them in color now.

The added value especially in a world like the game where we consider the immersion of the player as crucial, is too important to leave this technology behind.

The 3D seems present and future of electronic entertainment around until it's Technology How RV? at least.
