SANTA FE SPRINGS, CA - June 28, 2005 - Westinghouse Digital Electronics, a leading North American LCD TV and monitor provider, today announced the availability of its 37-inch LCD HD Video monitor, the largest monitor to date in the line. The new monitor is part of the Westinghouse Digital 1080p resolution line, which offers the highest standard available to consumers for HD digital video display, leading the industry in picture clarity and vividness with more than two million pixels to dramatically enhance the digital entertainment experience.
"Connect the Westinghouse 1080p 37-inch monitor to any HD cable or satellite box or PC and the picture quality is stunning," said Douglas Woo, president of Westinghouse Digital. "Until now, the 1080p technology was available only for advanced commercial applications such as high-resolution medical imaging and studio monitors for high-definition video editing. Now consumers can choose from the first line of LCD displays for the mass market to offer a 'true' high-definition digital viewing experience."
The new 37-inch 1080p LCD video monitor provides consumers the ultimate viewing experience of HDTV programming and other high-resolution video content. The monitor features a 1920x1080 progressive scan (1080p) resolution, delivering unparalleled clear images and vivid color in a convenient and attractive thin, flat-panel design that can be easily mounted on a wall. With two DVI inputs with HDCP, two component video inputs and standard VGA and RCA, the monitor allows users to connect to PCs, satellite and cable boxes, game consoles, DVD players and the latest multimedia video source to experience the stunning picture quality of 1080p. The detachable 20-watt speakers and a classic clean, contemporary style complete a beautiful display for the home, boardroom or commercial applications.
"Westinghouse Digital has taken its LCD TV expertise and created a premium monitor that produces crisp images for digital entertainment, home office tasks and the Internet," said Woo. "Consumers can expect to see additions to our growing monitor line that are HD-Grade(a) and feature 1080p resolution."
