High end TV manufacturer NuVision, whose products have just gone on sale in Australia is set to announce a new line up of customisable Full HD 1080p LCD and LED TV’s and a new 3D video projector.
The new models have handcrafted anodized-aluminium bezels which can be coated in any Pantone colour for shipment to Australia. The new range will be shown at the US CEDIA show later this month.
NuVision CEO David Hester said the company is targeting well-heeled customers in Australia who demand top quality and personalisation.
During the past 12 months as several major brands have struggled in the US market, NuVision sales grew 100 percent year on year in 2010 said Hester.
Advance Audio Australia recently started selling NuVision products which have some unique features including a NuControl port which is a bi-directional serial control port configured on an RJ-45 jack.
This is described as ideal for installers who are now wiring homes with Ethernet. It also allows the NuVision TV to be connected to an array of home-control systems, such as Control 4 systems which will be distributed by Advance Audio Australia in November.
The RS-232 protocols are the same in all sets regardless of screen size and allow complete control of all system functions.
The Company has also expanded their Film Times Five (FX5) technology, which used 100Hz motion compensation by repeating the first frame five times over, NuVision has advanced to an FX10 system in large-screen models.
The system provides 200Hz or 400Hz motion-compensation technology using a process of 5:5 pull-down and frame doubling.
NuVision TV’s also incorporate a proprietary Frame Forward Motion (motion estimation and motion compensation) technology using algorithms for level control to give users the ability to keep or eliminate intended judder (used in some content to keep the look of film).
The FX10 line up is comprised of LCD models measuring 40 inches and larger, all of which are 3D-capable using active-shutter glasses.
The new line starts with a 22-inch 60Hz 1080p model and transitions to the FX5 series, including 32 inches (100Hz) and 40 inches (100Hz). All three use edge-mounted LED backlighting, allowing a panel depth of 1.5 inches or less.
It is not known yet which models will be shipped into Australia.
