Cineon Plasma HDTV Line

Microtek on Wednesday established its first line of HDTVs under the Cineon name. Both the 42-inch CP42HA (pictured) and the 50-inch CP50HA are designed with very exacting home theater installations in mind, Microtek claims. Either model's image can be fine-tuned beyond the normal range allowed by most sets and can have their color balance, saturation, and other factors in picture quality adjusted to match the viewing environment. The two plasmas are said to be vibrant out of the box, with the 1024x768 display of the 42-inch model sporting a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,300cd/m2 brightness and finer 1366x768 display of the 50-inch system achieving its own figures of 8,000:1 and 1,000cd/m2 respectively.

Input is broad and includes component, HDMI, and VGA inputs for high-definition signals as well as ATSC and NTSC tuners for receiving both analog and HD broadcasts. Legacy inputs for RCA and S-video connections exist as well. Microtek has already begun shipping the CP42HA ($1,599) and CP50HA ($2,199) to custom home theater installers and stores.

    It's 2007...

    ... not 1998.

    Full 1080p HD resolution is where it's at as far as video displays are concerned.
