Abt @ CES 2012: Sony Google TV Streamer and Blu-ray Player

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

A glimpse of one of the many trends hitting CES 2012 is the advances TV technology presented by Sony.  Sony announced an updated version of its Google TV-powered Blu-ray player, the NSZGP9, as well as their first ever Google TV set-top box, the NSZGS7.

As you can see, the Blu-ray design is different that Sony’s model from last year, the NSZGT1.  That model, while still available, offered a bulkier look and and somewhat complicated remote.  Speaking of remote, it seems that they have upgraded the newer remote that comes with the Google Blu-ray player.  It  supports gestures via three-axis motion control. There’s also a touch pad on the front, plus a back-lit keyboard on the back.

 

Surf the Web with Google TV

Friday, May 21st, 2010

Thursday, Google formally announced that they are teaming with Sony, Intel, and Logitech to make web surfing on TV seamless. This new Google technology will be available on new TVs and set-top boxes. Sony will manufacture Google TV-enabled TVs, Logitech is creating the set-top box for TVs that aren’t equipped with the new technology, and Intel is creating the Atom processors for set-top boxes. It will make TV shows, movies, and videos easy to find and watch using only one remote. You can surf the web and personalize web content right from on your TV.

Expected in stores this fall, Google TV-enabled TVs will run off the new Android platform, allowing users to download Android applications and integrate the internet and TV by using Flash-compatible hardware.

Look for the Google TVs later this year.
