Runco announced the newest additions to its Crystal Portfolio series of LCD displays: the CX-42HD; CX-OPAL42; CX-55HD; CX-OPAL55 and CX-OPAL65. These new displays feature three new screen sizes and the company’s OPAL (Optical Path ALignment) image-enhancement technology. The company says OPAL is “a unique combination of a proprietary panel application and enhancements to create stellar images.” OPAL diminishes diffused reflections in rooms with high-ambient light that can wash-out images, and it also increases image sharpness by reducing glare.
Along with this OPAL technology, the Crystal Portfolio 42-inch CX-42HD and CX-OPAL42, the 55-inch CX-55HD and CX-OPAL55, and 65-inch CX-OPAL65, offer 120-hertz processing. These new flat panel displays feature native 1920 x 1080 performance, as well as Runco’s Vivix digital video processing technology.
Pricing for these new LCD TVs are as follows: The CX-42HD is shipping with a $3,495 MSRP; the CX-OPAL42 will ship in November with a $4,495 MSRP; the CX-55HD I shipping with a $7,995 MSRP; CX-OPAL55 ships in November with a $9,995 MSRP; and the CX-OPAL65 is shipping with a $17,995 MSRP.
