Mitsubishi TVs April 2009

Mitsubishi this morning overhauled its high-end HDTVs with several new models in two categores. The Home Theater line has been updated with the 737 and 837 series; the DLPs introduce a new extra-thin bezel and now support 3D for movies and eventual TV shows that can address the format. They also now scale up to a large 82 inches and have improved image processing, including a more advanced video calibration mode for those refining high-end home theaters.

Both carry 120Hz panels to reduce motion artifacts. The 837 models build on the 737s by adding better tint and dark-area detail, 4 HDMI 1.3a inputs, an RS-232 port for home automation and USB for media viewing. The 737 line includes 60-inch ($1,499), 65-inch ($1,799), 73-inch ($2,499) and 82-inch ($4,199) models, while the 837 line omits a 60-inch set in favor of 65-inch ($2,199), 73-inch ($2,999) and 82-inch ($4,999) editions. Sets should already be available today.

Mitsubishi has also rebranded its Immersive Sound LCD TVs as Unisen and given them the same thin bezels as the higher-end models. They continue to center on a 16-speaker chin mount that simulates 5.1-channel surround and have 120Hz panels. Mitsubishi doesn't detail full differences between the various Unisen models but says the 249 Diamond models have 18-bit image processing, a wired IR input and a microphone to calibrate the audio "sweet spot." These high-end versions involve 46-inch and 52-inch models at $2,799 and $3,299 respectively. Regular models in the 151 and 153 lines also include 40-inch sets, with pricing at $1,799, $2,199 and $2,599 for the stock 151 models; the 153 versions command $200 premiums on 40- and 46-inch models, and $300 more for the 52-inch screen.

All of the Unisen models ship in May.
