Sony Announces World’s First 4K Media Player | TechWatch | Scoop.it

Today at NAB in Las Vegas Sony unveiled the world’s first 4K Media Player and a video distribution service.

 

With a name only Sony could love, the FMP-X1 will be available this summer bundled with 10 feature films and video shorts in true 4K resolution for $699. In the fall of 2013, users of the same 4K Media Player will be given access to a fee-based video distribution service offering a library of 4K titles from Sony Pictures Entertainment and other notable production houses.

 

The feature films included with purchase of the 4K Media Player are Bad Teacher, Battle: Los Angeles, The Bridge on the River Kwai, The Karate Kid (2010), Salt, Taxi Driver, That’s My Boy, The Amazing Spider-Man, The Other Guys and Total Recall (2012).


While 4K TV has it’s detractors, more pixels are never a bad thing. When paired with a 4K display, Sony’s new media player will deliver HDTV that is four times clearer then 1080p.

New Closed-Captioning Glasses Help Deaf Go Out To The Movies

New Closed-Captioning Glasses Help Deaf Go Out To The Movies | TechWatch | Scoop.it

There will be a special attraction for deaf people in theaters nationwide soon. By the end of this month, Regal Cinemas plans to have distributed closed-captioning glasses to more than 6,000 theaters across the country.

 

Sony Entertainment Access Glasses are sort of like 3-D glasses, but for captioning. The captions are projected onto the glasses and appear to float about 10 feet in front of the user. They also come with audio tracks that describe the action on the screen for blind people, or they can boost the audio levels of the movie for those who are hard of hearing.

 

This is a big moment for the deaf, many of whom haven't been to the movies in a long time. Captioned screenings are few and far between, and current personal captioning devices that fit inside a cup holder with a screen attached are bulky, display the text out of their line of vision to the screen, and distract the other patrons.
