In multimedia television, Loewe goes high

European manufacturer introduces uber-box that tries to do it all.


As the evolution of the Apple TV shows, the digital television market isn't just about picture quality. The real fight, as has been predicted for the last decade, is for control of the living room in general.

Germany-based Loewe apparently knows this well and is responding with a new line of multimedia TVs with screens of 32, 37, and 42 inches--with a European flair for design, naturally, in piano black, chrome, or white. Its "Connect" line offers " high-definition viewing, wireless connectivity, internal storage for your music, films and photos and connections for hooking up mobile devices and storage units," according Tech Digest, as well as a DVR. All that's missing is a wristwatch remote to control it all.
