NuVision Deep Black LCDs

US-based NuVision on Thursday sent out two new versions of its Deep Black LCD TV for those wanting full HD in a dedicated home theater. The company's 42-inch 42LCM1 and 47-inch 47LCM1 share the 1080p native resolution of many sets but are designed for higher-end home theater crowds. Each is unusually bright at 500cd/m2 for the 42-inch model and 600cd/m2 for the larger version. The figures keep each TV visible even in very bright rooms, says the TV designer. Also common to both and geared to the serious home theater audience is an in-house NiCO image processing engine for the namesake deeper blacks and an RS-232 port for linking the sets to a home automation system. Connection options include HDMI, component, S-video, and RCA hookups.

The systems are enroute now from NuVision with integrated, chin-mounted stereo speakers. The 42LCM1 should command a premium over the earlier LCM2 and most other mainstream TVs at $3,199, while the 47LCM1 will be priced at $4,199. Availability reflects their target market and is primarily limited to specialized home theater stores and custom installers.
