Westinghouse Digital launches 1080p and 720p LCD HDTVs at the 2008 CES

Westinghouse Digital officially launches its new 2008 LCD TV line at the 2008 CES. The company is located at booth #21707, which is in the South Hall 1 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

1080p LCD HDTV:
The new Westinghouse Digital lineup of 1080p LCD HDTVs includes the new VK Series and TX Series that are designed for the consumer who wants the ultimate cinema experience and are created to be the center of the digital household. Ideal for a home theater setting, living room or large bedroom, the new TVs are available in 40-52″ screen sizes and all feature a bright flat panel, fast response time, high contrast ratio, and 1920 x 1080 progressive scan (1080p) resolution, the highest standard available to consumers for HD digital video display.

The VK Series and TX Series provide razor-sharp images with their Full Color Spectrum and High Contrast Picture — which creates deeper blacks and richer dark scene details by dynamically matching the brightness of the TV backlight to that of the on-screen image.

The VK and TX Series are consumer friendly and very easy to use. The Advanced Calibration Menu allows the users to make advanced adjustments to calibration settings and the Preset Video Modes gives users the ability to select from a menu of customized viewing styles including movies, games and sports.

The VK and TX Series feature Westinghouse Digital proprietary technologies such as: SpineDesign? intelligent cable access, DayBright panel technology for stunning daytime or nighttime viewing and Autosource? technology, intelligent engineering that allows the TV to automatically adjust to the external source that is activated.

The TX Series also features Westinghouse Digital's 1080Pure offering 1080p resolution out of all HD connectors, including component inputs.
