Image Matrix Tech on Sky News: Inside Telstra Blue Tick Lab

In Sunday’s segment on Sky News Australia (Weekend Edition with Tim Gilbert) we took a TV exclusive tour of Telstra’s upgraded Blue Tick lab which is in a secret location. Telstra’s Blue Tick program is way more important than I first thought. They are able to simulate outdoor conditions to make sure phones work in Australia – most importantly – in fringe coverage areas. The way we hold a smartphone could prove the difference between making a call or having no signal at all. It’s just one of the many tests inside the lab. It could make the difference on highways or farms by kilometres. And that’s a safety issue. 


The market for projectors is small when compared with TVs but demand is strong and growing. Projectors are much cheaper for 100 inch plus screens – and big sizes is something TVs can’t match .. yet. But if you want to replace your TV for daily viewing.. be warned!  The biggest weakness of projectors is ambient light – a light rejection screen helps but not much.

For a home cinema setup – look at a laser projector like the new Epson LS12000 – expensive (AUD $8999) but you won’t need to replace a bulb and the picture is amazing. We discuss the advantages and disadvantages of the latest projectors and can they actually replace your TV.

From ultra short-throw units like Hisense’s Laser TV to Samsung’s portable Freestyle projector. Keep an eye out for the pool shots.


Withings has a new smart watch coming out later this month. SCANWATCH HORIZON is possibly the best health watch available that looks like a real watch. I say health watch because it’s packed with body monitoring features from a company with a strong track record in the medical sensor field. The Scanwatch Horizon has 30-day battery life, 100m dive rating and a stack of health scanning options.

We discuss how it stacks up against the Apple Watch Series 7.
