Innovative in-wall design delivers both flat-screen appearance and
outstanding microdisplay image quality
TEMPE, AZ, May 31, 2005 – At the 2005 International Communications Industries Association show (InfoComm) conference, Brillian Corporation (NASDAQ: BRLC) will unveil its latest Gen II Liquid-Crystal-On-Silicon (LCoS) television product: the BR6501mFB rear-projection HDTV monitor. The HDTV monitor is available to Home Theater Dealers/Retailers through Electrograph Systems Inc. and to ProAV Dealers through Starin Marketing. MSRP of the set is $7,999.
Designed specifically for built-in applications, (e.g. home theatre, conference rooms, etc.) the 65-inch diagonal, 21-inch deep HDTV monitor is the perfect fit for today’s standard 60-inch-wide new HDTV bays and allows AV system designers to elegantly conceal the housing of the TV. A mere 2.5-inches of screen depth is visible when mounted in-wall providing the design aesthetics of a flat-screen monitor with the high-performance attributes of Brillian’s Gen II LCoS microdisplay technology.
“Many high-end HDTVs are designed into wall-based entertainment bays,” said Vincent Sollitto Jr., President and CEO Brillian Corp. “Our new 720p product configuration was designed specifically to meet this need. It offers outstanding picture quality in virtually any lighting, software flexibility, and interoperability with automation systems — making it ideal for both home entertainment and commercial applications where superb picture quality is required.”
The Brillian 6501mFB HDTV monitor offers intensely brilliant and sharp on-screen images. Featuring UltraContrast technology, the next-generation HDTV delivers the highest commercially available on-screen LCOS contrast ratios-up to 2000:1 in a rear-projection HDTV. With its ultra-fine-pitch 16:9 widescreen, 170-degree viewing angle, and three (1280×720) megapixel (720p) light engine, the Brillian HDTV offers true, artifact-free, full-motion video. What’s more, it has integrated RS232 control and has an upgradeable software platform that enables new high-performance features to be added as they are developed for general consumer, home theatre, or commercial ProAV applications. The 122-pound, 21-inch-deep HDTV monitor also features a new backlit, programmable universal remote and is available with an over-the-air ATSC tuner (BR6501iFB model).
Brillian Corporation designs and develops rear-projection HDTVs targeted at high-end video/audio OEMs, high-end video/audio retailers, ProAV/CEDIA distributors, and their base of dealers and custom installers looking for breakthrough performance and image quality. The company is the first and only provider of Gen II LCoS technology used in these products. In addition to its high-definition televisions, Brillian also offers a broad line of LCoS light engines, microdisplay products and subsystems that OEMs integrate into proprietary HDTV products, multimedia projectors, and near-to-eye products such as monocular and binocular headsets. Brillian’s LCoS microdisplay technologies address the market demand for a high-performance display solution with high image fidelity, high-resolution scalability, and high contrast ratios.
