Westinghouse introduces super-high-res LCD, 1080p models

We look at Westinghouse's LCD offerings at CES 2007.

First there was 1080p. Now there's something called "Quad Full" or 3,840x2,160 resolution, which Westinghouse showed off in a 56-inch LCD HD monitor at this year's Consumer Electronics Show. The company says that equates to a resolution greater than 8 megapixels and that the LCD offers "stunning, never-before-seen picture reproduction."

The Quad Full monitor may be the flashy headline act, but the real meat of the story is that Westinghouse is serving up several new LCD televisions, with a full lineup of moderately priced 1080p models in 42-, 47-, and 52-inch sizes. The company has also announced additional all-in-one models that feature a built-in DVD player. A new line of photo frames is on tap as well, and judging from an early peek at the specs, it should be better than the old line, which wasn't impressive.

Here are the highlights of Westinghouse's offerings for 2007.
