I haven't been to Besançon for nearly four years. That is a situation I am going to have to remedy. This is the latest offering from the folks at Lip.

Roger Tallon saw the Portavia 111 portable television, and saw something more. 

He saw what would become the TV and Big TV.

That was another time, of course. Lip went through some not great times since the heady days of the original TV and Big TV.

Enter the Berards -
Lip is finally heading back to where it belongs, at the forefront of design. Although I did not receive a press release, my understanding is that Pierre-Alain Berard has been working on this new version of the Big TV for some time. And it has definitely been worth the wait.
