HP is bringing out new lines of DLP, plasma and LCD TVs

HD LCD TV sets

Three HP Pavilion High-Definition LCD TV sets – the 26in LC2600N, 32in LC3200N and 37in LC3700N - are due in the USA and Canada this month. They're said to automatically adjust "image quality" according to ambient light levels and offer "unparalleled" digital connectivity - CableCARD slots, HDMI, DVI and FireWire.

High-definition HP plasma TVs

There are two new plasma HDTVs - the 42-inch (PL4200N) and the 50-inch (PL5000N) models. Both deliver up to 8 billion colors and 2,048 levels of gradation. They have integrated an CableCARD slot and HDMI, as well as a built-in memory card slot, and a six-speaker sound system. You can grab one in the United Stated and Canada this month.

High-definition DLP-based projection TV sets

The giant back-projection TV sets – HP calls them microdisplay televisions (MDTVs) – are DLP-based and span three sizes, 50in, 58in and 65in and will be available in the USA and Canada in October.

The 65in MD6580N and 58in MD6580N offer a resolution of 1080p and have a built-in CableCARD slot. The 58in model also comes in a lower 720p. The smallest, 50in MD5020N is only available in 720p, and also lacks the CableCARD slot.

All have 10 front inputs plus on-screen video-input selection - using a set of thumbnails to show what's coming in on each input.

More information about the products mentioned above is available in an online press kit at http://www.hp.com/go/cedia2005.
