Syntax-Brillian announced their new Olevia 665H, a new 65″ HDTV that has a suggested retail price of $1,999. Does that get your attention? It’s got 1080p resolution, dual HDMI and dual component connections, a PC input. It’s also got RS-232 serial control for commercial applications. Video processing is handled by Pixelworks DNX technology.
Okay, 65″ 1080p HDTV for less than $2,000; how do they do it? This is a rear projection model, using LCoS imagers. And if it gains anything from its Brillian heritage, the image will probably be outstanding. Many experts hold that LCoS provides the best HDTV image quality overall of all the various technologies. The new 665H will be on display at CEDIA 2007 in Denver next week, and I’ll be on hand to take a look at it so you’ll have some advance information about it before it ships in the fourth quarter of this year.
