BenQ Surround LCD TVs

Electronics manufacturer BenQ said that it would help space-sensitive home theaters by releasing three new LCD televisions with built-in surround. The newly announced VH3243, VH3743, and VH4243 sets all use SRS TruSurround XT to generate a virtual surround effect from their chin-mounted speakers, regardless of the number of channels in the original source. This gives apartment dwellers and other space-limited viewers the opportunity to enjoy surround sound without the bulk and cost of a true multi-speaker setup, BenQ claims. Each set also uses BenQ's own AMVA display panel design to improve color at steep angles and a 1,200:1 contrast ratio. Specifics regarding inputs and resolution weren't provided by the company. The new screens will first launch in Taiwan by mid-December for an unspecified price.
