HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #498: Accell UltraCat HD

By The HT Guys • Sep 30 2011, 6:47am

Up until now the longest HDMI cable run the HT Guys were able to successfully transmit video across was 50 feet. Those cables were pretty thick and hard to snake through walls and attics. We've tried longer cables but had no luck beyond 50 feet. Thanks to Accell there is a product that will allow you to extend your HDMI up to about 330 feet. The UltraCat HD HDMI extender uses HDBaseT technology to send video over Cat5e/6 Ethernet cables. You can even send IR signals over the same cable. The device has an MSRP of $500 and is available today.

Since most of us can't afford 100 inch plasmas, a front projector is pretty much the only choice you have for this type of experience, albeit an expensive one. Enter the Optoma HD33 ($1500). Its a 1080p DLP projector that supports 3D.

HDTV and Home Theater Podcast - Podcast #494: JVC 47-inch BlackCrystal 120Hz LCD HDTV

By The HT Guys • Sep 9 2011, 8:01am

The HT Guys have been JVC fans for quite some time, dating back to CRT tube TVs in years gone by. Braden has a JVC rear projection TV still in use in his home and Ara has a JVC projector in his theater. When we got the chance to talk to Tom Paterniti, VP of Sales for JVC BlackCrystal TVs and also check out a brand new 47' BlackCrystal LCD for ourselves, we jumped at the opportunity.

Although we couldn't attend this year, we have been eagerly eyeing press releases coming over from Germany. Here are a few that caught our attention.
