The innovative TVs of CES 2012 Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Ty Pendlebury from CNET.com and I'm here at the close of CES 2012 in Las Vegas. We saw a lot of excellent technology this year, but the best was OLED, Organic Light Emitting Diode. These are 2 televisions from both Samsung and LG and the best news is, this technology you'll be able to buy this year. Samsung's OLED screen is particularly impressive. And featured great blacks and a very nice design, but what we saw is a prototype. And Samsung was tight-lipped about the technology behind it or even a release date. Apart from OLED there was another space age technology on the show Sony's Crystal Display. It's a baseball scoreboard shrunk down into a 55-inch television. There are 6 million LED's inside this screen. Sadly it's only a prototype. One technology that was cool, but no way near ready, was the Toshiba's Glasses-Free 3D LCD. This will be the first glasses-free television to hit the US market and it will be in the first few months of 2011. But watching it is a little like concentrating on one of those magic (iPictures?) for 90 minutes at a time. We'll take glasses for now. Meanwhile, plasma keeps on getting better and better. And by it Samsung and Panasonic released updated versions of last year's award winners. The new Panasonic VT50 offers even better blacks in a stylish cabinet. While the Samsung ES8000 included enhance picture quality and a (novel?) gesture and voice based control method. And here we have our pick for the Best of CES 2012, the LG EM9600 OLED TV. Now, this is 55-inch television. It's coming to market later this year probably around the September time frame. No (process?) has been set yet, but as you can see it's a stunning television. And it has the edge over the Samsung in that it's actually a real product. So if you're looking to buy the best TV, you'll see this here. Make an OLED. So this has been a look at some of the exciting technology we've seen at CES 2012. I'm Ty Pendlebury from CNET.com.
