Santa Monica, Calif. - NAKUSA introduced a Nakamichi-branded 29-inch multimedia LCD display panel with high TV performance capabilities.
The Nakamichi VU29 digital LCD multimedia display will ship this month at a $5,499 suggested retail price. It will package a 29-inch 4:3 screen with 1280 by 768 pixel resolution, and Faroudja's DCDi video processing technology for standard definition video images.
The horizontal and vertical viewing angles are said to be 170 degrees each, and the contrast ratio is listed at 600:1.
Audio is enhanced with 20-watts of power, and SRS WOW simulated multi-dimensional surround sound.
The VU 29 unit incorporates a cast metal base, a back sprayed acrylic injection molded lens with a rolled metal chrome finish and a Gas Spring hinge mechanism that provides variable height adjustment and easy left/right and up/down adjustment. An integrated 'Torch' stand or wall mount are available for placement in the home.
Also added is a built-in flash media card slot that is compatible with both the Compact Flash and Smart Media formats for viewing digital still photos on screen.
The VU 29 unit also comes with a Radio Frequency (RF) or Infra Red (IR) remote control. RF does not require line of sight to operate and is therefore extremely flexible.
