NEC Australia announced on Thursday its new range of home cinema displays at the CEDIA expo on the Gold Coast, which includes six new LCDs and a high-definition 50-inch plasma.
The PXT-50XD1 plasma is a first for NEC, which they see as a strategic move to enter the home theatre market. Its features include a built-in HD TV tuner, 2 HDMI inputs, and a 720p/1080i resolution.
"Not only does the PXT-50XD1 look completely revolutionary in design, but the advanced connectivity and picture quality on this large 50-inch screen is sure to please the fussiest home theatre enthusiast," said Paul Cunningham, NEC Australia's category manager of audio visual.
NEC also launched a new range of integrated HD tuner LCD TVs at the event, with six new NLT-HDB3 models. The panel range spans 19-inch, 22-inch, 26-inch, 32-inch, 40-inch and 46-inch models. Prices start at AU$999 for the NLT-19" HDB3 and culminate with the NLT-46" HDB3 for AU$3,999. The PXT-50XD1 plasma retails for AU$3,999.
