CEATEC 09 wrap-up
by Hubert Nguyen
CEATEC, which is the biggest consumer electronics show in Japan, is always a good place to see concepts and trends from some of the biggest electronics brands. Despite the recession, there were a bunch of interesting to look at, and if you missed last week`s coverage, here`s your chance to catch-up on the best stuff from CEATEC 09.
3D Stereo TV and projectors
Everyone that makes displays was showing some kind of stereo 3D product or concept. Stereo 3D had been available for years on PC, but now, stereo-3D console games and 3D movie content are becoming available and manufacturers are expecting ("hoping" would be more accurate) for demand to pick up.

Instead, customers will probably wait for prices to go down to a comfortable level ($1800 for a 50"?) before they buy. 4K2K resolution televisions (don’t miss the Panasonic one) were also on the floor, showing how four times the number of pixels of 1080p could be used to either have larger screens or ultra-sharp ones.
