AMD to show 3D Blu-ray playback at CES

The demo in Las Vegas will be about six months ahead of the commercial availability of discs

Blu-ray Discs based on a new format for 3D video will be on show at January's Consumer Electronics Show.

Chip-maker Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) said it plans to demonstrate the new Blu-ray 3D standard that is due to arrive on commercial discs in the second half of 2010.

The 3D format is currently being finalized by the Blu-ray Disc Association, the standards group behind Blu-ray of which AMD is a member, as consumer electronics makers race to launch 3D products in 2010.

At this year's IFA consumer electronics fair Sony said it would launch 3D compatible TVs in 2010 along with 3D gaming on its PlayStation 3. It also promised 3D-compatible Blu-ray Disc players dependant on finalization of the new format. Other companies including rival-Panasonic are also looking to launch 3D products in 2010.

The CES demo will be performed with Cyberlink, which makes the popular Power DVD playback software.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.
