LOS ANGELES–Nov. 21, 2005–Syntax Corporation, one of the fastest growing manufacturers of LCD TVs in North America, today announced that the Shrine Auditorium has installed over 25 of Syntax’s award-winning Olevia LCD TVs as the official flat panel display of the world famous arts and entertainment facility.
The addition of Syntax’s Olevia 32-inch, 37-inch and 42-inch LCD TVs represents a key milestone in the first phase of the overall renovation plans for the Shrine Auditorium.
