Event – Sony Showcases Hi-End Projector – VPL-VW5000ES

Announced at Sound Decisions, the Sony VPL-VW5000ES is the first projector designed specifically for home cinema use that features 4K resolution powered by a laser light engine that provides 5,000 lumens of brightness, is compatible with High Dynamic Range (HDR), emulates the new BT.2020 color gamut, and covers the full DCI colour space.

Sony continues to be the only manufacturer designing projectors specifically for the home theatre market that provides full 4K resolution imagers. Sony’s advanced SXRD panels are designed to produce outstanding native device contrast and when coupled with the laser light engine, the VPL-VW5000ES provides an infinite dynamic contrast ratio and 5,000 lumens of color light output.

The VPL-VW5000ES covers the full DCI-P3 color gamut. By taking advantage of its professional calibration tools the VPL-VW5000ES allows the user to choose to emulate the BT.2020 color space, as well. This ensures compatibility with upcoming home video formats. And by bringing together high brightness, infinite dynamic contrast and the latest signal processing technology, the VPL-VW5000ES provides compatibility with High Dynamic Range (HDR), enabling the viewer to see wider ranges of contrast and colors than ever before.


Sony’s Advanced Motionflow feature reduces blur and maintains brightness and VPL-VW5000ES’ extremely fast imagers allow viewing of fast action content – especially sporting events – with great smoothness, even with 4K signals. Along with HDR and BT.2020 capabilities, the VPL-VW5000ES also includes an HDMI input that is HDCP 2.2 compatible. That same input has enough bandwidth to accept 4K 60p signals up to YCbCr 4:4:4 8bit or YCbCr 4:2:2 12bit, thus helping to ensure that the VPL-VW5000ES is prepared to handle all types of video content now and in the future.

The VPL-VW5000ES can be tilted as much as 30 degrees, allowing for flexible installations that take advantage of mirrors to place larger screens in smaller spaces, such as rear projection. Thanks to a newly developed liquid cooling system with low noise operation, the projector can also be located near viewers without impacting the enjoyment of a program’s audio. The unit ships with a standard powered lens with a zoom ratio from 1.27 to 2.73:1 and lens shift capability of +/- 80% vertical and +/- 31% horizontal.

Benefits of the VPL-VW5000ES’ laser light engine include fast on/off times with no waiting for the projector to cool down – which means you can immediately turn it back on to resume binge-watching your favorite show. The light engine delivers a long operational life with a linear decrease in brightness, so the color shifts seen with traditional lamp wear are not expected. But if the color settings do shift over time the VPL-VW5000ES includes a built-in re-calibration function that can be used to test how much the projector has drifted from its original factory calibration and reset it.

The VPL-VW5000ES is available for pre-order now at a recommended retail price of $84,000. For more information, visit http://pro.sony-asia.com/projector.

Press Release – LeEco Leads “Negative Profit for Hardware” Era with Cross-category Launch of CDLA Superphones, TV, EV and VR

le(April 21, 2016, Beijing) On April 20, LeEco held a grand cross-category product launch event at LeSports Center in Beijing, attended by 2,600 journalists and nearly 8,000 LeFans from around the world, where it launched unprecedentedly four new devices across four industries, including Le 2 Superphones, Super TV, Le VR and self-driving Super EV. The four devices belong to four industries yet have the same brain, the same nerve center and the same bloodline and share the same ecosystem.

LeEco holds a vision of an all-compassing ecotopia empowered by constant cross-industry synergistic integrations and shared with users and partners, according to Mr. Jia, LeEco founder and CEO of LeEco at the event. “Launching four smart device products across four industries at the same time is something that no other company in the world has ever tried,” he said. “This looks like a crazy thing to do, but it is actually part of our mission to build an ecosystem world. The world we envision and are moving towards is an all-encompassing world in which our users and partners are empowered to do self-enriching things passionately. Through ecosystem economy and innovation, LeEco is ushering in the exciting ecosystem technology or ET era.”

Le 2 is the world’s first flagship phone to support the LeEco-initiated Continual Digital Lossless Audio (CDLA) standard which is accredited by the Chinese Musicians Association and takes the music industry into the continual digital lossless audio era, representing the second offensive against iPhone.

The introduction of     the CDLA     standard is set     to start a     technology-driven ecosystem-empowered revolution in the music industry. In the past, it often took several years or even decades for a new technology or material to be commercially applied and made widely available due to barriers between industries and the resistance from the vested interests. This pattern has been broken by LeEco’s vertical integration model which crosses the boundaries of innovation and takes down industry barriers to introduce and apply the latest technologies quickly. LeEco plans to promote the new standard in the industry and make the stunning audio experience available to more users.

That is one small step for LeEco, but one giant leap for the music industry. The triple industry revolution triggered by the introduction of the new technology provides eloquent testimony to the power of LeEco’s vertically integrated open closed-loop model. Leading Chinese musician Wang Feng announced that his audio equipment start-up Fiil will adopt the standard and release LeEco customized Type-C headphones.

“The introduction of the CDLA standard is an epoch-making event for the digital lossless audio experience,” said Liu Yuan, Vice President of Chinese Musicians Association. “We are glad to accredit it and hope that there will be more highly influential figures like Mr. Wang Feng and Mr. Jia Yueting to make bold audio innovations and attempts and bring even finer audio experiences to people.”

The Le 2 series is available in three variants: Le 2, Le 2Pro and Le Max2. While continuing the first generation’s popular features such as boltless exterior design, bezeless display, Type-C, and metal unibody, the second-generation series is thinner with guaranteed performance and a longer battery life and even more aesthetically appealing in every detail and as a whole. In particular, it radically does away with the 3.5mm earphone jack to provide users with the revolutionary Type-C digital lossless audio experience, breaking a paradigm that has been unchanged in the earphone industry for three decades and ushering the music phone industry into the CDLA era.

The flagship Le 2Pro, treated with a three-level anodic oxidation process for the first time in the industry, gets a new refresh with new bezeless ID 3.0 screen in infinite design to provide a

completely immersive visual experience. The three-level anodic oxidation process is the result of ten months of intensive R&D efforts with a total investment of more than RMB 20 million, including personnel, material and equipment costs. The top-of-the-line Le Max2 continues Le Max’s symmetrical design in the unique “dopamine red” created by applying color psychology insights to be emotionally appealing and pleasing to the eye. The power and volume buttons are also ingeniously designed and masterly crafted. Le Max2 is also among the world’s first smartphones to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor and the world’s first commercially available metal-body phone to offer the ultrasonic fingerprint scanning feature.

The Le 2 Superphones are still offered at a negative profit for hardware as LeEco continues to promote the hardware freebie model in a bid to advocate an all-new ecosystem consumption pattern and usher the industry into the ecosystem era. A total of 1 million units of the Le 2 series will officially become available at 10:00 a.m. on April 26, with Le 2 debuting on LeMall.com and JD.com, Le 2Pro on LeMall.com and Tmall.com, and Le Max 2 on LeMall.com, JD.com and Tmall.com. Le 2 is priced at RMB 1099, Le 2Pro at 1499 and Le Max2 at 2099.

During the launch event, LeEco also unveiled its fourth-generation Super TV lineup – Super 4

X50 Pro (RMB 2,999), Super 4 X50 (RMB 2,499) and Super 4 X50 CSL Edition (RMB 2,699). All the three products are offered at prices below their mass production cost prices with subsidy from the larger LeEco ecosystem to lead the TV industry to the “negative profit for hardware” era. Jia Yueting said that Le Super TV is a true ecosystem TV, with products in each generation setting new benchmarks in specifications and performance and delivering satisfying experience and meeting operation needs in the whole lifecycle. With “super technology, comprehensive ecosystem and disrupting prices”, Super 4 X50 Pro, Super 4 X50 and Super 4 X50 CSL Edition will go on sale on LeMall.com and LePar stores on April 26.

The greatest highlight of the launch event was LeSEE’s first self-driving concept car.

LeSEE co-founder and global vice president Ding Lei gave an introduction to the LeSEE concept car which has an immediate “Internet feel”, with a super-cool ultra-size LED display on the front to display vehicle status. Positioned as an intelligent Internet car, it can drive and learn autonomously with extensive novel functions including face recognition, emotion recognition, environment recognition and road recognition and has received 804 patents worldwide. LeEco has applied for over 10,000 patents worldwide which span nine areas including phone, TV, car, EUI, VR and cloud, demonstrating the power of innovation based on ecosystem synergy.

During the event, Jia Yueting and Ding Lei demonstrated the self-driving function of the LeSEE concept car, using a Superphone to control the car remotely, with its state-of-the-art intelligent connectivity package being highly praised by the audience including VIP guests such as Liu Yonghao, chairman of New Hope Group. Liu Yonghao expressed on site his intent to become the first LeSEE owner in the world. Ding Lei disclosed that the ecosystem-empowered intelligent Internet car will be showcased at Auto China 2016 to be held five days later.

In addition, LeEco also released its latest EUI 5.8 OS which achieves historically nine-camera live video streaming, representing a giant step forward from the 3-camera live video streaming introduced at last year’s 4/14 launch event. Speaking of the 3-camera live streaming, Jia Yueting said then that it would be difficult for Apple to introduce a similar thing even within two years. “Many of our innovations bred within the LeEco ecosystem, as represented by 9-camera live streaming, multi-desktop, voice control and intelligent mobility, are unprecedented in the industry,” said Jia Yueting. “However, it’s not our intent to always go alone on the path of innovation, but we also look forward to communicating with the industry for common development. But LeEco’s model has been often misunderstood and even sneered as doing only model innovations rather than technological and product innovations. The fact is that technological innovation is an integral part of our ecosystem innovations. We look beyond competing on specific points but aim to lead the entire industry comprehensively and give utterance to our voices. Today, I throw down the gauntlet, offering as gifts a whole lineup of our top-of-the-line products, including LeSEE Super EV, to any company in the industry to deliver 9-camera live streaming or similar experience and productize and commercialize it within one year.”

The 4/20 “Ecosystem without Borders” launch event set a number of records. It achieved for the first time global VR live streaming, making it possible for over 1,000 journalists and countless LeFans, including those from North America, India and Hong Kong, to witness the event in a lifelike setting in real time. At the event, LeEco’s new VR product designed to work perfectly with Superphones also made its debut, providing a fascinating immersive experience to users.

The event was not only the world’s first VR-enabled but also the world’s first interactive live-cast launch event, introducing the all-new “live lottery” launch event model. The 4/20 launch event was broadcast live on nearly 100 online video sites and became the world’s first product launch to be live-streamed on Facebook which is one of the cloud sharing distribution channels of LeEco, setting a new record.

Press Release (With Video)- Epson Enhances MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Guest Experience with Augmented Reality

 

Epson’s Moverio smart glass technology brings alive the rich narratives in the team’s trackside environment

    

Guests enjoy the garage tour experience using Epson Moverio and augmented reality.

BRACKLEY, United Kingdom, and, TOKYO,
Japan, March 2016 –  
Guests of the reigning Formula One World Champions, the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team, enjoyed more than just a winning start to the 2016 season courtesy of team partner, Epson, who introduced their Moverio smart glass technology to the Albert Park race weekend to bring alive a rich seam of narrative with their unique augmented reality eyewear.

A highlight for the more than 100 guests that enjoyed the weekend hospitality experience in Melbourne was a full Formula One induction at the nerve-centre of the team’s operation, the race garages. Traditionally guests have enjoyed a show and tell tour through the various functional areas where race car sub-assemblies are prepared, where data analysts track car performance and the team mechanics wait in readiness for impending pit stops.

The introduction of Epson’s Moverio smart glass technology in Australia enabled this moving experience to be augmented by a wide range of user-selected, contextual content, from video technology explainers to live social media feeds and driver statistics all in big-screen format directly in front of the wearers’ eyes.

Press Release – Golden Village Implements Visa Checkout®

Movie fans can now purchase tickets using the efficient and reliable online process

Singapore, February 2016– Golden Village has made the cinema experience even more convenient for patrons. The local cinema giant is the first cinema operator in Singapore to successfully implement Visa Checkout®, a seamless and user-friendly online purchasing method. With Visa Checkout®, patrons just need to input their existing username, password and a computer generated One Time Password (OTP) to purchase Golden Village and Gold Class® tickets. At present, Visa Checkout® has been used in approximately 12% of the transactions done via Golden Village’s website.

Visa Checkout® eliminates the need to enter credit card numbers, CVV numbers and credit card expiry dates. It can be accessed on all mobile devices, whether Androids or iPhones. Thanks to the use of advanced security features, cardholders are assured that their card details are safe from external threats. To enroll, users just need to log on to https://secure.checkout.visa.com/createAccount?channel=destination&niflow=destination&nicmp= destination&locale=enSG&country=SG.

“Golden Village is always at the forefront of improving our patrons’ viewing experience,” says Chia Chong Hai, Chief Information Officer, Golden Village Multiplex. “The unveiling of Visa Checkout® is another initiative to ensure that Golden Village remains the leading cinema operator in Singapore. Patrons can now look forward to enjoying our services at the click of a button.”

“Visa is pleased to have Golden Village as one of our first key merchants to implement Visa Checkout. Visa Checkout addresses some of the problems faced by online shoppers by reducing the number of steps required for them to complete their online purchases, thus enhancing the entire shopping experience. Based on Visanet data, eCommerce is growing three times faster than traditional face-toface shopping in Singapore. Given that Singaporeans shop most online for movie tickets, we believe that there will be an increase in the number of transactions on Golden Village with the introduction of Visa Checkout,” said Ms. Ooi Huey Tyng, Visa Country Manager for Singapore and Brunei.

Press Release – First in Singapore: Golden Village Multiplex Launches Auro 11.1 3D Sound Technology By Barco

We have heard about Auro 11.1 3D  Technology by Barco for many years. Finally, it is here in Singapore!

Golden Village Multiplex is the first cinema operator in Singapore to support the revolutionary 3D immersive sound technology, Auro 11.1 by Barco. Auro 11.1 brings sound from all around and above to create the most impactful experience. Golden Village Suntec City is the first cinema in Singapore to deploy Auro 11.1 with the debut of Jack Neo’s latest Chinese New Year comedy/ drama, “Long, Long Time Ago”, which was natively mixed in the new immersive technology at Galaxy Studios Belgium.

Mr Sebastian Fong, Manager, Projection Management, Golden Village Multiplex, “Visualisation has grown tremendously in recent years. On the other hand, the evolution of audio technology has been at a gradual pace. This makes Auro 11.1 by Barco a monumental evolution in the history of cinema audio technology. We understand that 50% of the movie experience relies on pitch-perfect audio, which makes it most gratifying for us to be the first cinema operator to launch Auro 11.1 in Singapore”

Auro 11.1 is touted as the most realistic 3D sound experience currently available in the market. Unlike other technologies where speakers are placed only on a horizontal plane and directly above, the Auro 11.1 by Barco’s system uses a sound reproduction speaker layout based on three axes (x=width, y=depth, z=height) and three vertical layers (surround, height, top), which provides the most natural true-to-life reproduction of sound. Thanks to its unique mezzanine layer located between the standard surround and overhead speakers, Auro 11.1 by Barco provides a much better spread of sound in the vertical axis which delivers a natural representation of 3D sound all around the listener using fewer channels than other immersive sound systems.

 

The benefits of using Auro 11.1 have encouraged Hollywood producers and others from around the world to release more than 125 films that leveraged on the new technology. Jeffrey Katzenberg, the CEO of DreamWorks Animation, has praised Auro 11.1 for offering the best cinematic experience to movie patrons.  DreamWorks Animation’s latest film, Kung Fu Panda 3, is currently playing in theatres in Auro 11.1 by Barco.

 

Says Mr Eddie Tan, General Manager, South East Asia Entertainment for Barco: “Auro 11.1 by Barco is the apex of cinema audio. Every boom, swoop and whisper will be fully experienced, making your movie experience the ultimate adventure. Auro 11.1 gives film fans the biggest reason to watch movies within the theatres and not in the confines of their homes. We thank Golden Village for this partnership and for launching Auro 11.1 in Singapore.”

Press Release – @LogitechG Announces New G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse #GameWithPassion #WinWithScience

The Best-Selling Gaming Mouse Just Got Better With Customizable RGB Lighting

SINGAPORE — 5 JANUARY 2016 — Logitech (SIX: LOGN) (NASDAQ: LOGI) today announced the introduction of the Logitech® G502 Proteus Spectrum Gaming Mouse. By adding RGB customizable lighting to the Logitech® G502 Proteus Core, the world’s best selling gaming mouse just got even better. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum still retains the world’s best DPI sensor, advanced surface and weight tuning, but now gives you even more features to elevate your game and style.

RGB Customizable Lighting

Match your style and environment by adjusting up to 16.8 million colors and brightness, using Logitech Gaming Software (LGS). Bring your mouse to life with breathing light patterns, or set your lighting to continuously cycle through the color spectrum. The lighting can also be synchronized with Logitech G’s other RGB products.

Accurate and Responsive Optical Sensor

The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum features Logitech’s most powerful and accurate optical sensor, the PMW3366, for maximum performance and tracking accuracy and the exclusive Logitech G Delta

Zero™ optical sensor technology that increases reliable targeting. The Logitech G502 Proteus Spectrum also features a huge DPI range of 200 to 12,000 with zero sensor acceleration, zero smoothing or filtering and zero pixel rounding.

    RGB customizable lighting: Match your style and environment by adjusting the mouse’s lighting with up to 16.8 million colors. Bring your mouse to life with breathing light patterns, or set your lighting to sleep when you aren’t using your system.

Logitech M337 Bluetooth Mouse

The Logitech M337 Bluetooth Mouse lets you create on virtually any computing device, whenever and wherever you choose. Its programmable navigation button puts control in the palm of your hand, allowing you to switch between applications, change between desktops, drag-and-drop files and images, replicate the three-finger swipe gesture that brings up mission control on a Mac computer, and bring up Task View on Windows 10. The mouse tracks reliably on just about any surface – from metal café tables to tile countertops to your favorite study desk – thanks to a laser-grade optical sensor. It is portable, includes a tilt wheel, has a curved shape and textured rubber grips that provide lasting comfort, and it can keep going for up to 10 months on one AA battery. Offered in three colors – Black, Blue and Red, the Logitech M337 Bluetooth Mouse will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.00.

By downloading Logitech Options Software, you can customize both the keyboard and mouse to enhance your experience and unlock a world of possibilities.
