Foxtel to broadcast 3D TV in 2011

In-house testing underway; Foxtel set-top boxes already capable of receiving 3D broadcasts

Foxtel intends to broadcast 3D television signals in 2011, tech blog Gizmodo reports. “Foxtel has been closely monitoring 3D developments since January of 2009 and has an active program for 3D broadcasting in its Engineering Development Labs,” according to a statement by Foxtel CEO Kim Williams. “3D is an exciting development in broadcasting, and Foxtel HD set-top-units have already carried 3D signals in our premises with terrific picture clarity. Foxtel will continue to run laboratory trials on 3D transmissions over the next year.”

Test broadcasts of 3D signals to customers will not occur for at least another year, and no information on pricing has been revealed. “I expect that Foxtel will bring its first test broadcasts in 3D to subscribers in 2011 when full product details will be revealed," Williams said. "It will be an exciting addition to our range of high quality HD products which now encompasses the most comprehensive offering in Australia with 15 24-hour HD channels." Watching 3D broadcasts requires a compatible television set and special viewing glasses.

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.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
