Yes, it is something of a gimmick, but for the last few years at CES manufacturers have competed to see who can come up with the biggest TV. This year, the "honor" went to Sharp, which weighed in with a 108-inch Aquos set.
Sharp is also putting a bet on powerline networking as its choice for bringing multimedia content from a PC to a television. Powerline is a type of networking that uses existing home wiring to carry data. It's an appealing technology that's been around for several years, but hasn't quite caught on as wireless networking has increased in speed and reliability.
Sharp's Network Aquos system takes advantage of the newest versions of powerline networking, which have data transmission speeds of up to 200 megabits per second and can carry two HD feeds. The company expects to be shipping powerline products compatible with its Network Aquos system this summer.
