Thompson presents two new 4K TVs for the European market, 50″ 4K and 55″ 4K. The 50″ is to be sold initially for about 2,000-2500 Euros and the 55″ is to be sold for about 3,000-3,500 euros. Consider those are the introductory prices and that one can maybe hope prices to quickly come down during 2014 to for example 1000 euros for 50″ 4K and 1500 euros for 55″ 4K. Both TVs support native 4K content (maximum of 30fps over HDMI 1.X standard) and up-scaling conventional HD content to 4K resolutions with the Marseille upscaling solution certified by Technicolor. Thomson is thus the brand to bring TCL’s 4K TVs to the European market. Here’s hoping that the 55″ 4K TV from Thomson/TCL reach the sub-2000 Euro price point all over Europe sooner rather than later! Consider that TCL is China’s number 1 TV maker. And that Thomson is one of the brands that TCL is using to sells its TVs in Europe!

The new E Ink Carta technology delivers a 50% increase in contrast over Pearl E Ink, 20% less reflections, Carta technology is now in the newest Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 6″ e-reader, and E Ink also shows the new Regal Wave Form technology which removes the need for full page refreshes allowing for faster refreshes for up to a hundred page turns when reading. E Ink also shows a smartwatch based on their flexible E Ink Mobius screen technology. E Ink Mobius screens are flexible and can be custom shaped enabling smaller new form factors. E Ink claims that the CST-1 watch is the thinnest watch in the world at .8mm thick. The E Ink watch amazingly gets a month of battery. Also here’s an A4 sized Mobius display. Sony has there own Mobius display based product designed for education with touch and active digitizer capabilities. E Ink Mobius screens due to their flexibility are much more durable than glass LCDs. Mobius screens currently use E Ink Pearl technology but could in theory upgrade to E Ink Carta. E Ink also shows electronic replacements for paper signs which is useful in retail outlets. Electronic signs enable real time price updates enabling much more accurate pricing which makes consumers more confident in a retailer. The electronic signs can last 5 years on a battery and in theory could operate without batteries.
