QUESTION: Dear Prof Cleggsan‎‎

Is it possible to design and manufacture a LCD / LED Television set combined with the functionality of a DVD / VCD / CD Player ?.

The DVD / VCD / CD Player component has to be embedded within the Television electronics.

This will eliminate a separate product purchase for a DVD / VCD / CD Player interfaced with the LCD / LED TV ?.

The Remote Control for television set will have additional user interface buttons for remotely managing DVD / VCD / CD functionality viz Play, Stop, Forward, Rewind, Eject etc.

There can be Dual OR Single DVD / VCD / CD Drives embedded within the LCD/LED television set.

Can there be complexity in building this integrated product ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

ANSWER: I don't know about VCD feature because it has no market presence in most parts of the world but there are plenty of flat screen televisions with built in dvd and blue ray dvd players in the market currently.

Go to the google home page then to 'more' then to shopping and put shopping search like 'flat screen tv with built in dvd' etc.  You will find plenty of listings.

The dvd player will support cd disc and some may support other disc varieties from home recorded and photo discs, etc.  

You need to do more searching on your side before seeking outside opinions; in this case their are good answers right before your eyes from a shopping product search.

Have a good day.

QUESTION: Dear Prof Cleggsan

Thank you.

Is it possible to design and manufacture a Portable Television set with inbuilt DVD / CD / VCD Player ?.

Can there be complexity in building this portable integrated product similar to a Cellular Device ?.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

As previously reported to you there are already such products in the marketplace in great numbers.  The matter of adding vcd feature to the dvd player is a matter of choice by the maker.  The market for vcd is not of interest to most makers.  VCD discs are used only in certain parts of the world but the big markets in most countries have no interest anymore in this old technology.

Making it a portable product is only a market decision because portable tv are not very portable if the screen size gets large.  For small screen size that would be practical for a portable design the question of economics and end user preferences.  It is not a technology issue.

A cellular 'size' device cannot support a dvd player due to size.

Have a wonderful New Year.
