We first saw RCA's HDV5000 at CES in January, and true to their word here we are in April with the launch release in our hands. Expected MSRP still stands at $500, and the device will feature HDMI and component outs supporting 720p / 1080i (plus up-converstion of standard DVDs), S/PIDF, 5.1 channel...

Marantz has a new projector, but you'd better listen up, because even if they're not incredibly well known for their HD gear this side of the Pacific, this thing's a DLP powerhouse. Their freshly minted VP-11S1 features a full 1080p high definition picture, Konica Minolta lens, 6,500:1 contrast rat...

Samsung ain't the only company out with a cheap up-scaler now: ladies and gentlemen, say hello to Panasonic's DVDS52, the other high definition DVD up-scaler with HDMI-out and a $100 price tag. We've yet to vouch for the quality of the picture (perhaps because it's not out yet, so far as we can tel...

Although not the complete screw-by-screw disassembly that we're accustomed to, here's your first chance to get a glimpse inside Toshiba's new HD-A1 HD-DVD player and check out the magic circuitry delivering all that 1080p goodness. As we learned yesterday, a few retailers (we're looking at you, Be...

Since Sony, et al. hammered out the Blu-ray Disc spec, there's been speculation, theorization, and discussion of an 8-layer 200GB disc. Sony even supposedly had some working 200GB BRD demos way back in 2004. Well, now those mammoth coasters are in the works over at TDK, who apparently hope to c...

It's been a while since we heard about Pioneer's "world's smallest" 50-inch 1080p plasma at CEATAC 2005 (which was knocked down a couple of months later by Fujitsu & Hitachi's 42-inch 1080p plasma), but they may yet be the first company to actually get theirs on the market. Pioneer's ...

We didn't think it'd be a no-name like NuVision that took the eh-kinda-illustrious title of first company to release a 1080p LED DLP, but they're claiming to have their 52-inch non-wobulator on the market in 3 months. We'll believe it when we see it, but we've no doubt that a good LED DLP would do o...

That's what Ben Drawbaugh over at HD Beat says, and he should know since he eats, lives, and breaths in HD (I think in much lower resolutions myself). Head on over to HD Beat to get the nitty gritty details, but it seems that support for HD resolutions is now built into OS X (before it requires som...

We didn't make it out to Sundance like some of the WIN crew; after all, who wants to see movie screenings when we can relax in our home theaters with high-def televisions, right? What's that you say....over half of the 193 films at the Sundance Festival are in high-definition? No, say it ain't so. ...

Good for them. High Def Forum is a great resource for HD and they just hit the 100,000 post mark. The forum was started back in March 10, 2004. It slowly grew and with HD becoming more and more prominent, they website grew. Not to take away from High Def Forum's limelight, but feel free to ask us a...
