Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.
In 2014, Philips will introduce its first TV with the new Android-based Smart TV platform. They will also launch Ultra HD TVs and TVs with twin tuners, Miracast screen mirroring and a new Cloud TV app that streams TV channels over the internet.

Asus has announced two new IPS based monitors in 23 and 27 inch sizes. The monitors are slimmer than ever and the bezel has been reduced to a minimum. “Inspired by sundials”, says Asus.

We are happy to see Asus abandon the TN panels for their Designo range because that is exactly what has happened with the two latest additions to the line-up. The 23 and 27 inch Designo monitor come with IPS panels.

Dubbed MX239H and MX279H, Asus promises an edge-to-edge design “inspired by sundials” - the base, that is. The depth of the monitors measure just 14.5 and 17.5 mm, respectively. The IPS panels are lit by edge LED which also helps to reduce power consumption compared to traditional monitors.
