Strong Guidance 8/6/13 as investers we have short memory
Indeed, Pixelworks' technology is designed to optimize UltraHD TVs, tablets, and Ultrabooks. The company stated that it is seeing strong demand for its technology, driven by the "third wave of video processing requirements." For example, within the projector product line, PXLW discussed its partnership with Sony (SNE), which is meant to enable wireless connectivity to projectors from mobile devices such as tablets, mobile phones and Ultrabooks.
Further to my other comment, there is really no ultra HDTV content to speak of so most of this is upscaling older, lower resolution programming.
To drive volume on the ultra HDTV's which is needed to reduce the prices.......we need native content. Movies and sports could be the real big drivers but I am not aware of any networks or studios getting ready to do this.
Ultra HDTV's could be the latest 3D as that was also a solution for a problem that did not exist. There is still few native 3D content and people rarely use this feature. Until sports networks and movie studios go to ultra HDTV programming, I just don't see many of the ultra HDTV's being sold and thus the prices not dropping significantly.
But, I do see Apple and others driving the smart end and internet connected part of HDTV's using the same HDTV screens. There is no need and probably no high volume/high profit trying to sell the entire TV rather than sell the Google TV or iTV or Roku TV connection which is all that is needed.
