Curved gaming monitor to retail for under $800 this spring
At a pre-CES event in Las Vegas, Westinghouse showed off a widescreen (21:9 aspect ratio) gaming monitor that also happened to be curved, and thereby make for a more immersive gaming experience. The resolution is said to be 3K, so about 3440x1440 pixels, and offering both HDMI and MiniDisplayPort inputs. Also on hand was a 42-inch 4K LCD flatscreen, and the rep on-hand said that it's part of a new range that will include top-tier specs but be aggressively priced, as is the Westinghouse tradition. Smaller and larger models will also be part of the lineup.

The new 4K-capable TVs include a 110-inch model as well as more conventionally-sized 50, 55, and 65-inch models, with all UHDTVs being geared up for an early-2013 release.

Westinghouse budget HDTV
Westinghouse has recently introduced a 31.5-inch LCD HDTV that provides 720p resolution while keeping the price of entry low. The W3223's other key specs include a 2,000:1 contrast ratio and 6.5ms response time, and the set has a built-in ATSC/NTSC/ClearQAM tuner along with two HDMI ports. Westinghouse rates the horizontal and vertical viewing angle at 176 degrees and says the set's integrated DayBright technology allows for a high contrast ratio that makes the TV easily viewable in bright sunlight.
Westinghouse HDTV with DVD
Westinghouse recently introduced its 32-inch LCD HDTV with a built-in DVD player, the SK-32H570D. The set will upconvert standard DVDs from its built-in, slot-loading DVD player or devices connected via one of the two HDMI inputs, while its ATSC/NTSC/ClearQAM tuner brings with it HD programming support. The SK-32H570D support 720p and 1080i resolutions with its 1366x768-pixel display, along with standard-definition 480i/p signals. Other specs include a viewing angle of 178 degrees, a pixel response time of 6.5ms and a contrast ratio of 1,200:1.
Westinghouse on Thursday broke some new ground with its VK40F580D HDTV, the first from the company to feature a built-in DVD player. Unlike most such combos, the DVDs slide in via a front-mounted drive, and not on a side-mounted and reportedly harder-to-reach slot. The 40-inch LCD HDTV delivers 1080p resolution via its two HDMI inputs, and also sports a USB port for connecting portable or flash memory drives, digital cameras or digital audio players, among other compatible devices.
Westinghouse HDTV models
Westinghouse Digital on Tuesday unveiled four new 1080p-capable LCD TVs, as well as several other multi-purpose LCD TVs, including its portable and all-in-one units. New to the 1080p TX lineup are the 42-inch TX-42F430S, the 47-inch TX-47F430S, and the 52-inch TX-52F480S, which feature an integrated ATSC/NTSC/ClearQAM Tuner, and 1080p resolution through all high-definition connectors, including component and VGA.
Westinghouse Wireless HDTV
Westinghouse on Thursday opened up its offerings for CES by unveiling what it says is the first-ever HDTV to be truly wireless outside of power cables: the unnamed set uses CWave's newly established Wireless HDMI format to avoid the clutter of cabling. Courtesy of ultra-wideband wireless and high quality video compression, the format is said to provide enough speed for 1080p images and surround audio without affecting quality. The technology will allow users to place HD movie readers and DVRs independently from the TV's own location.
