INDIANAPOLIS — Princeton used the recent CEDIA Expo to unveil its new HTX series of 4:3 direct-view HDTV monitors.
The line includes the AR3.6HTX (36-inch screen size, $3,499 suggested retail price), the AR3.2HTX (32-inch, $2,499) and the AR2.7HTX (27-inch, $1,799).
All are capable of displaying the native scan rates for the 1080i and 720p HDTV broadcast formats, in addition to the following display formats: 480p and 540p (EDTV), 480i (SDTV and NTSC) and XGA computer graphics.
All three HTX models start shipping to dealers this month.
Inputs on the monitors include all standard NTSC connections, including composite, S-video and interlaced component video. HD component and VGA inputs are also included.
Each model offers a built-in line doubler to enhance the appearance of signals shipped through the composite, S-video and interlaced component video connections. The displays are also compatible with international video formats such as PAL (640 x 480 at 60/72/75/85kHz).
An NTSC tuner is built in to receive off-air analog broadcasts. These images are automatically upconverted by the line doubler for a 480p format.
