Expansive Line Of RCA LCD Flat Panel HDTV Sets For Every Room And Every Budget On Display At 2007 Consumer Electronics Show


First 1080p Models and New Larger Screen Sizes Introduced

LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2007 – Aggressively leveraging its liquid crystal display manufacturing capacity, TTE Corporation is introducing 18 RCA and RCA Scenium flat panel high definition television sets, its most extensive offering of LCD models. On display at the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show in booth 20507 in South Hall, the sets ranging in size from 15- to 57-inches and priced from $299 to $2,299, meet the needs of any discerning consumer looking for a full-featured flat panel TV.

The lineup includes the first RCA 1080p sets, each displaying more than 2 million pixels as well as new picture and panel technologies that deliver outstanding picture performance. Additionally, TTE is embracing larger screen sizes including 42-, 46-, 47 and 57-inch models.

“As LCD panel pricing declines and larger screen sizes become more affordable for consumers, we believe that LCD will be the long-term winner in flat panel,” said Greg Bosler, Executive Vice President, TTE, North America. “Our commitment to LCD is reflected in the breadth of the line we are introducing at CES and the dedication of R&D investment we are making for picture and panel performance. We expect our package of features, styling and affordability will be attractive to consumers as they shop for new high definition television sets,” Bosler added.

Picture Perfect Performance

With a focus on exceptional picture performance, the RCA Scenium models feature

Amplified Resolution Contrast & Color – ARC 2 advanced picture processing that provides edge enhancement plus adaptive spatial/temporal noise reduction, dynamic contrast enhancement, and multi-axis color space correction.

All models contain digital (ATSC) tuners with QAM tuning for over-the-air or unencrypted cable channel reception.
