New products on display at the American International Toy Fair, held in N
Optoma used International CES to show a range of new display products for its elite Sovereign line, including a 50W-inch high-definition plasma monitor, and a pair of high-definition rear-projection DLP HDTVs in the 65W-inch and 50W-inch screen sizes.
The company also showed an entry-level compact DLP front projector designed to appeal to a mass home-theater audience.
In high-definition plasma monitors, the company announced its model SVP5F, shipping this month at a $5,999 suggested retail. The 50W-inch panel offers a 1,366 by 768 screen resolution, 400 nits of brightness and a 3,000:1 contrast ratio.
Inputs include HD component video, DVI-HDCP and 15-pin D-sub.
In HDTV rear-projection HDTV displays, Optoma also showed 65W-inch and 50-inch models.
Optoma said it is currently shipping its 65W-inch SV65XF ($5,999 suggested retail).
The DLP rear-projection HDTV display features a non-reflective, fine-grade screen; 1,280 by 720p resolution from Texas Instruments' HD-2+ chip; a 2,500:1 contrast ratio; and 400 nits of brightness. Models offer 1 percent overscan performance and DVI/HDMI inputs, Optoma said.
