Analyst believes Apple will release some form of TV in the future

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: May 20, 2015 10:13 pm

Investor Carl Icahn believes Apple is planning an ultra-high-definition (UHD) TV launch sometime in the future, while other sources say the company shelved those plans more than one year ago. It's a suddenly bizarre discussion that has elicited a lot of passionate statements from analysts and journalists alike.

"According to sources in Silicon Valley familiar with Apple's thinking, Apple will enter into the television market in a huge way by providing an upgraded Apple TV CPU hub combined with a unique controller," according to Michael Yoshikami, CEO and founder of Destination Wealth Management, in an editorial published on CNBC. "It is likely to include both Siri voice recognition as well as a touch-pad interface that could also include force touch."

 

Interestingly, Yoshikami believes Apple could provide the "brains of the TV" and let consumers pick their own monitor or display - from a growing number of companies that would be more than happy to step in and help offer additional flexibility.

LG shows off 55-inch wallpaper OLED panel, just 0.97mm thick

By: Anthony Garreffa | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: May 20, 2015 2:40 am

Whatever TV you own right now, it's not as thin as LG's latest 55-inch wallpaper OLED panel, something the company just presented at its media event.

 

lg-shows-55-inch-wallpaper-oled-panel-97mm-thick_01

 

The new TV is just 0.97mm thick, weighs only 1.9kg and can be placed onto, and pulled down from a wall with a magnetic mat. LG's latest wallpaper TV is much thinner than its existing 55-inch OLED panel, which is 4.3mm, considerably thicker than LG's latest model.

 

LG also took some time during its media event to showcase a new convex OLED panel that can be used for digital signage for large-scaling outdoor advertising. The South Korean electronics giant has also pushed for production of the OLED as its next big thing, with the advanced display shrinking TVs down, while making them lighter, as it "emits light itself based on the electric current without a backlight unit, unlike the liquid crystal display (LCD)", reports The Korea Times.

Report: Apple wanted to release TVs, and then shelved its ambitions

By: Michael Hatamoto | More News: Displays & Projectors | Posted: May 19, 2015 3:35 pm

Apple originally had plans to release an ultra-high-definition (UHD) television, but those plans were put aside more than one year ago, according to a report from the Wall Street Journal. Instead, the company wants to create online TV service and its set-top box, the Apple TV, rather than create a TV.

The online TV service from Apple is expected to launch prior to the end of the year, and the new Apple TV set-top box should be outlined in June.

 

Investor Carl Icahn still believes Apple will launch an UHD TV sometime next year, even though Apple executives don't have TV production as a focus. "We view television's role in the living room as a strategically compelling bolt-on to the Apple ecosystem," Icahn said in a letter.
