Samsung S27B550V Monitor Input Lag Test.



Testing the input lag of the Samsung S27B550V  27" LED backlit LCD Monitor using a Mouse & Keyboard in the XMB of the PS3 & I actually didn't see any input lag when I slowed the video down & moved it frame by frame because as far as I can see the XMB moved in the same frame that the keys was pressed in, I was shocked by this even though this is my second test because I also did the stop clock test with my laptop hooked up to the LCD monitor & a CRT monitor & the pictures show the monitors with the same time  on the ms clock.
___________________________________________________



& here is a test with the  PS3 Dualshock 3  in Street Fighter 4

___________________________________________________________________

Below are some Input Lag Test results using the input lag  clock test  Samsung S27B550V vs CRT & also vs my laptop screen, 
Samsung S27B550V was hooked up through HDMI in all the test with the CRT being hooked up through VGA & for the most part they both showed the same time in the snapshots with a few times where the CRT would be ahead & even some times showing the LCD monitor being ahead which is strange since CRT monitors don't have any input lag that I know of so I'm guessing it was just a few hiccups that cause the Samsung S27B550V to be ahead of a CRT in a few shots , The Samsung S27B550V vs the Laptop screen mostly showed the S27B550V ahead with the same number being shown a few times.

















Call of Duty Black Ops II should use this lost & forgotten PlayStation 3 feature: Keyboard & Mouse support




I almost forgot all about Keyboard & Mouse  support being a feature of the PlayStation 3 for games, I was bored & decided to try it out for the 1st time tonight, I'm not much of a First Person Shooter player & I never really played much games on my computers so this was probably my 1st time really playing a FPS with a KB & M & it's also like my 2nd time playing Unreal Tournament 3 since maybe the 1st year or so that it came out around 2007 - 2008 it's just been in my stack of games but I just tried it out with M/KB & it plays a lot better than I ever remember it playing with a controller & I'm not really sure if I had the mouse set right I just moved the sliders & tried it out & as I was playing all I could think is why the hell hasn't any COD games used this feature on the PS3? yeah I know the people playing with controllers will be crying saying it's unfair but they shouldn't cry they should just get a KB/M too if they feel like it's unfair . PS: the mouse pad I had sucked but it's the only one I could find laying around the house & I'm playing on a dresser instead of a computer desk so it's not really the best set up for playing KB/M games but I was just testing it out.

is Sony getting on your Nerves with the PlayStation? well that's exactly what they are trying to do (Patent)

A newly published Sony Patent shows how Sony wants to study your nerve responses while using a electronic device so the information can be used to predict your actions when using the device.

CONTROL OF ELECTRONIC DEVICE USING NERVE ANALYSIS


& There is also a Sony Patent for HEADS-UP-DISPLAY SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT TOOL 

Gaze-Assisted Computer Interface
 

If I had to guess I would say that all of this will have to do with a newer model of the Sony Heads Up Display that will work with the PS4 or maybe the Clouds or PlayStation Vita.

Patent: Sony wants to convert TV commercials into interactive networked video games with PlayStation Move support


new Sony patent that will allow television commercials to be played as online social games    using the PS3 & other devices some games are shown using the PlayStation Move.


"System for converting television commercials into interactive networked video games 

Abstract
Methods, systems, and computer programs for converting television commercials into interactive network video games are presented. In one method, a broadcast or streamed commercial is accompanied by an interactive segment. A media player coupled to the broadcast or streaming media source identifies the existence of the interactive segment and presents the user with an enhanced and interactive mini-game commercial that can be played with other "viewers" in a common or disperse demographic. Multiple methods for content delivery are provided, including a model where television commercial is inserted within consecutive frames of the television program, and a model where the commercial is overlaid on frames of the television program allowing the user to play the game while the television program is displayed. In a preferred embodiment, the termination of the interactive mini-game commercial is set within a fixed time period commensurate with traditional spot television advertising. "
