News - Aurora Multimedia Launches Dynamic Button Controller

Spotted at Engadget, Aurora has released a Dynamic Button Controller. It takes a Logitech Harmony approach to the its control and will dynamically change its button set depending on what button you pressed before. A quick example would be if you pressed DVD,  play pause and all of those good buttons would show up.  Below is a snapshot of the controller and the press release.

The WACI PAD-6 was introduced this year at InfoComm and exhibited again at CEDIA. Without the complex design and programming of common graphic user interfaces seen on most touch panels, the WACI PAD-6 provides robust functionality in an extremely intuitive format. Currently available in a 6-button format, the new product fits comfortably in a standard single-gang metal electrical box. The diminutive size is deceptive in both power and functionality. The 6-buttons change based on selection, so if a user presses the “DVD” button the buttons will all change to transport controls. With 64 MB of RAM each button can support hundreds of unique instances.

News - EPSON PowerLite Home Cinema 400

EPSON's Powerlite 400 lives up to its name with 1500 ANSI lumen output, which should be enough for rooms with moderate amounts of ambient light. For $1500 you wouldn't expect a 1080p projector and this case you would be right. However, it appears that that money will be well spent on features like 5,000:1 contrast ration, trio of HD hookups, In the end, it falls a bit short due to its color accuracy.

From the article:

The Cinema 400 really shines when it comes to the display of video games due to its high brightness and deep color saturation. It performs equally well with dark games like Splinter Cell where one spends 99% of the time in the shadows, or bright, colorful games like Halo. No matter what type of gaming material was being played, the Cinema 400 delivered a bright, three-dimensional image that lent a great deal of excitement to the gaming experience.
