• The future is curved

    Posted on 8th August 2013 by Lee.

    Samsung-Curved-oled-TV Samsung has just launched what it claims to be the World’s first curved TV in the US. The 55-inch curved OLED TV, which is already available in Korea, will set you back $14,999. Samsung has dubbed it the ‘Timeless Arena’ design and claims the flexible OLED tech prevents the screen developing ‘dead’ or defective pixels. Samsung also claims the curve design is intended to enhance the viewing experience as by keeping all parts of the screen an equal distance away from the viewer. The TV also supports other state-of-the-art features, such as multi-view, which allows two viewers to watch two different channels on the same screen thanks to a pair of 3D glasses. Many other electronics companies, including LG, are lining up their own curved OLEDs so it looks like this tech will eventually filter down to become essential piece of kit in your living room.

  • The next generation of HD is here

    Posted on 3rd July 2013 by Andy.


    Sony’s new FMP-X1 4K media player and distribution service has been announced for imminent release. 4K is the new high definition format (4096 x 2160) that Sony says delivers ‘a vibrant and natural picture that is four-times clearer than high definition’. The Japanese electronics giant already has 4K TVs available to buy - the 55-inch X9005A is priced around £4,000, while the 65-inch model is about £6,000. Although 4K content isn’t currently available these TVs do a good job of up-scaling HD content. But the release in the next month of the FMP-X1 media player will bring with it some new 4K content. The media player will come with 10 pre-loaded 4K movies and will also provide access to Sony’s own 4K distribution service, which launches later in the year, while 4K movies are also expected to be released on Blu-ray. Sony has always been ahead of the game at launching new formats in a bid to dominate the market and, without any other major contender in the wings, 4K looks likely to be the format to beat in the future.

  • The Bachelor Of Technology

    Posted on 9th February 2011 by yasmin.

    So, you have your slinky contemporary bachelor pad decorated in light, modern tones accompanied with clean glass and stainless steel surfaces throughout.  This is all well and good; however, the central focal point of any dream abode for any gentleman is of course the latest technology. Here at Controliss we believe that the king of all technology for any bachelors home is of course the television, followed naturally by remote control blinds. At the higher end of flat screen TV bliss are the famous and aspirational Danish company Bang & Olufsen. Their incredibly slim BeoVision 10 Television is simply stunning. Using the latest LED technology, advanced features, superior image and clear sound as well as being stunningly streamline and easy on the eye. The television comes in 3 sizes up to 46" (113.8cm x 103.4cm) and is available in 6 frame finishes including silver and black but don't forget to check out our favourite feature, the optional motorised floor stand. So you have invested in a large LCD or Plasma TV and your home is oozing with the latest appliances featuring state of the art technology and you're the ultimate bachelor of modern technology right? Wrong, there appears to be something missing from your bachelor pad, something that really will define you as the ultimate bachelor of technology and help shield nasty sunlight glare from effecting your viewing experience. The item in question is the ultra modern, ultra cool and flat screen TV friendly remote control blind.

    The Controliss collection of motorised blackout blinds with one touch remote operation are an absolute breeze to install and our contemporary collection of roller blinds in blackout fabrics really do add to the viewing experience of any TV. Our blackout roller blinds are controlled with a handset that will automatically raise and lower the blind at the touch off a button and wireless programmable timer is also available so the blinds will automatically operate at specific times of the day and week.
