Westinhouse 2007 HDTV Line
Following the demonstration of its Quad Full HD display at CES, Westinghouse has announced multiple new LCD televisions. The TX series upgrades the company's existing full HD, 1080p screens by upgrading expansion and image calibration options: each of the 42-, 47-, and 52-inch displays builds four HDMI inputs into the chassis, every one of which supports the complete resolution of a given TV. The 52-inch version will also see an improved pixel response time of 6.5ms, versus 8ms on the smaller models. All three will bundle ATSC tuners and should be ready between April and May.
The SK series has also been announced and is aimed at more price-sensitive buyers: each panel sports a 720p resolution, dual HDMI connectors, an ATSC tuner, and an 8ms response time. Sizes will range between 19 and 42 inches when the entire SK line ships in April, with prices beginning at $449 for the smallest version and culminating at $1,699 for the 42-inch system. A 32-inch version with an integrated DVD player will be ready during the same month for $1,050 ($950 without).
