TV broadcasters will be able to reach more viewers on more devices with a more robust signal
LAS VEGAS, NV – January 5, 2018 — Pearl TV today announced a collaborative project with Sony Electronics to develop an essential viewer navigation ingredient for next-generation television – a new type of on-screen television program guide that will be responsive to consumer commands. The new channel navigation tool, part of the larger interactive content environment for next-generation ATSC 3.0, is being developed for the Phoenix Model Market project that is supported by 10 Phoenix market TV stations.
A Honda patent application for a new, unique kind of air dam that could be used on a variety of vehicles.
According to the filing, the design is for a strong air dam with hollow structural crossbeam members. The design allows for an intake to be more rigid, improving the structural strength of a front bumper. The hollow crossbeams feature zig-zag patterned supports inside, which allow for the intake grille to be both strong and lightweight. The filing also says some intake designs can cause a whistling sound at speed, and this intake could potentially address that problem as well.
Will some elements of the Nissan IDx live on?
Nissan has filed a trademark application for “NISSAN IMX,” suggesting a new concept is in development. The new trademark is a bit similar to the IDx Concept, which although it was well-received, never headed to production. At the time when Nissan confirmed the IDx got axed, the company did say some of its styling may live on in a front-wheel-drive sports car. Could the Nissan IMX trademark bring that to fruition?
Lexus has filed a trademark application for “LS-FC Concept.”
Lexus recently unveiled the LS F Sport model, suggesting a hardcore LS F isn’t out of the question. And now a trademark application filed on April 24, 2017, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office hints at a concept version of a Lexus sport sedan in the near future. Although the LS-FC Concept trademark is a bit different than previous Lexus concepts that begin with “LF,” the use of “LS” points to a concept based on the automaker’s flagship sedan. Lexus used the LF-FC Concept in 2015 to preview the new Lexus LS.
