Olevia 665H HDTV Set
TV designer Olevia helped kickstart Tuesday with the announcement of the 665H, a significant upgrade to its 65-inch rear projection LCD set. The liquid-crystal-on-silicon TV musters a full 1080p resolution with a relatively quick 4ms pixel response time and a 2,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Dual HDMI and component inputs provide HD-resolution video for conventional TV sources, with PC input explicitly supported by both HDMI and a separate VGA port.
Complex home theaters can tap into an RS-232 serial port for automation duties, the company says, while anyone can update the firmware themselves through a USB connection. Olevia will make price a key selling point when the 665H ships in the fall for $1,999 to both local retail chains and home theater installation shops.
