The Professor's HDTV Resource Center

Your source for independent HDTV information from an industry expert you can trust.

Welcome! If you're trying to find out about HDTV, you've come to the right place. If you're confused by all the jargon and acronyms, you'll find straightforward answers that you can understand and use.

If you're worried about making an expensive mistake, you'll find valuable information from an HDTV expert advisor that you can trust. I spent the past 20 years helping millions of readers unravel the mysteries of personal computers, and now I'm ready to help you with your questions about your next television. I'm your independent source for information, and I can help you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars when you buy an HDTV. And you'll get a system that will give your family, friends, and you enjoyment for many years to come.

You may find it a challenge to master all the new terms: digital cable, satellite TV, terrestrial digital TV broadcast, DLP, HD DVD, BluRay, and the new IPTV (that some people are calling "next generation TV"). And then there are all the new technologies such as OLEDs and fiber optics. Even the basic questions can be confusing: what is the difference between plasma and LCD, and why should you care?

If you want up-to-the-minute news and developments in HDTV and home entertainment, check out my HDTV Almanac, where I post new entries every weekday. Not only do I tell you what's new, but I also tell you what it all means. You'll get a lot more than just the cut-and-pasted press releases or auto-generated text from other Web pages that you'll find on some HD TV sites. And it's available as an RSS feed so that you can get each new entry sent to you automatically if you want. (If you don't know what an RSS feed is, don't worry. I'll explain that, too; it's really easy to use.)

And maybe you'll help me in my fight against confusion and misinformation about HDTV issues in the press and the industry. Check out our HDTV Truth Patrol.

Keep in mind that I'm not going to try to sell you any specific HDTV. My primary goal is that you learn what you need to know in order to make an informed decision, and avoid making an expensive error. I've helped millions of readers with computer issues over the years, and have earned an international reputation for being able to present complex concepts in simple terms that people can understand and use. I'm an expert in the display industry with decades of experience, and I fiercely guard my independence so that I can give you information that you can trust.

So welcome to my HDTV Resource Center. I know that you'll find information here that will help you make your next TV purchase a good choice.
