VAVA Chroma Triple Laser 4K UHD Projector Review

VAVA Chroma Triple Laser 4K UHD Projector Review

While TVs today are getting smarter and larger, not everyone may have the space to even hang such a panel. Conversely, some might want a watching area bigger than what most consumer TVs can offer. In both cases, laser projectors can provide the flexibility that some people need in a home entertainment system, and young company VAVA just debuted what could be one of the stronger options in that market. The VAVA Chroma ultra short throw projector packs quite a lot of buzzwords and features, but is it really worth the price it is asking?

Xbox Series X is getting a 4K UI makeover: Here’s who gets it

If you're an Xbox Series X user with a 4K TV and you've noticed that the UI on the home menu isn't as sharp as it could be, there's a good reason for that.

Microsoft is taking steps to fix that particular oversight, today rolling out a new Xbox preview that comes with a UI refresh.

Star Wars Squadrons gets 4K, 120fps on Xbox Series X only

New console hardware almost always means more power. That power, however, is lost if the software, that is, games, don't take advantage of it. That naturally requires releasing new titles and updating old ones that exploit all that new processing muscle, which is what EA is doing for Star Wars Squadrons running on next-gen, actually now current-gen, hardware. But just as these new consoles aren't exactly equal, neither are these next-gen improvements that could leave some feeling a bit jealous.

Apple TV 4K finally gets YouTube 4K with some caveats

The entertainment industry is seemingly pushing 4K content and supporting hardware to consumers' consciousness but it doesn't seem like a concerted effort either. 4K-capable hardware sometimes has no access to 4K content or 4K content is blocked by additional hardware requirements beyond 4K processing.

Fan remasters 1941 Superman cartoon in 4K using free software

We've seen a number of fan-remastered classics over the past few years, the majority of which revolve around TV shows from the late '80s through the 1990s, as well as historic footage. The latest remaster is different -- it involves the classic Superman cartoon from the 1940s, one that, quite obviously, doesn't look very good on modern televisions in its original resolution.
