Fujitsu US-Bound Plasmas
Fujitsu this morning took its first tentative steps into the American market for full HD sets by announcing its new AVIAMO line of plasma sets. The entire line is designed to resemble jet-black Japanese lacquer frames and uses aluminum, rather than cheaper plastic, as its foundation. Each set in the current lineup also maintains a high reference for quality, Fujitsu boasts. The 37-inch, 50-inch, and 65-inch models are all capable of a baseline 1080p resolution. Dual HDMI inputs and RS-232 home automation support also pervade the entire line.
Thought of as a premium brand, AVIAMO is set to go on sale this Spring for appropriate prices, starting at $5,000 for the 37-inch model and peaking at $18,000 for the large 65-inch version.
