HD England World Cup Football at Tesco.com HQ - R&D style!

Today R&D is hosting the crucial England vs Slovenia World Cup game in the atrium on a 65" (165cm diagonal) HDTV. This TV is fed by an Apple Mac connected via DVI cable and using the Mac's excellent graphics card to decompress and render a full HD 1080i high definition signal from the BBC HD channel received from satellite by an Elgato EyeTV Sat receiver. Oh yes!

Premium components end-to-end mean the picture quality is absolutely breathtaking so everyone is looking forward to.. er... working hard on their laptops in the atrium using wifi for network connections as they... er... glance at the TV from time to time...

Tesco.com is a great place to work!

Post a Comment

As this blog grows in readership - and because it carries the Tesco brand - I have had to become more careful about the sort of comments that are acceptable. The good news is that I'm a champion of free speech so please be as praising or as critical as you wish! The only comments I DON'T allow through are:

1. Comments which criticise an individual other than myself, or are critical of an organisation other than Tesco. This is simply because they cannot defend themselves so is unfair and possibly libellous. Comments about some aspect of Tesco being better/worse than another equivalent organisation are allowed as long as you start by saying "in my personal opinion.." or "I think that...". ... followed by a "...because.." and some reasoned argument.

2. Comments which are totally unrelated to the context of the original article. If I have written about a mobile app and you start complaining about the price of potatoes then your comment isn't going stay for long!

3. Advertising / web links / spam.

4. Insulting / obscene messages.

Ok, rules done - now it's your go:
