Syntax Debuts 42′ LCD With ATSC Tuner

Sporting Syntax’s attractive new black bezel design displaying elegance and versatility, the richly featured Olevia LT42HVi LCD TV presents consumers with a compelling alternative to similar sized plasma TVs.

The Olevia LT42HVi is the latest model to include Syntax’s proprietary “iDEA”(Innovative Digitally Enhanced Architecture) digital video processing technology, a suite of built-in and user-selectable video/audio features delivering crisp, clear pictures with precise colors, sharp resolutions and audio synchronization through its advance digital sound processor (DSP).


Key features of the Olevia LT42HVi include:

· High-quality 42-inch widescreen Super-IPS LCD panel with 16:9 aspect ratio

· 1366 x 768 native resolution (WXGA)

· 8 ms response time

· 1200:1 dynamic contrast ratio

· 800 nits brightness

· 178 degrees (H) x 178 degrees (V) wide viewing angle

· ATSC/QAM tuner for receiving digital video and audio broadcasts over-the-air

· HDMI with HDCP compatibility

· HD built-in with de-interlacing up to 1080i

· Dual progressive component scan inputs with 3:2 pulldown

· User selectable audio equalizer preset modes and reverb effects

To best fit a variety of living environments, Syntax is the first manufacturer to provide users with a choice of speaker mounting positions. The Olevia LT42HVi’s two 25-watt stereo enhanced surround sound detachable speakers can be mounted either horizontally at the base of the TV, or vertically on each side, or completely removed for users who want to customize their sound system. A newly designed stand featuring a rounded footprint is detachable for users who want to wall mount the Olevia LT42HVi.

Priced at $3699, the Olevia LT42HVi is scheduled for availability in June 2005. With the richest warranty in the industry, Syntax provides consumers of its Olevia LCD TVs (26+ inch units) with a unique free first year on-site service plan.
