Syntax Debuts 42 Olevia LCD TV with ATSCHDMI Digital Tuner

Syntax Groups Debuts First 42-Inch Olevia LCD TV Featuring ATSC+HDMI Digital Tuner; An Attractive Alternative to Plasma TVs

City of Industry, CA –April 5, 2005–Syntax Groups Corporation(tm), one of the fastest-growing manufacturers of LCD TVs in North America, today announced the new 42-inch Olevia(tm) widescreen HD built-in LCD TV, its first model to include ATSC+HDMI as well as NTSC TV tuners. Sporting Syntax’s attractive new black bezel design displaying elegance and versatility, the richly featured Olevia LT42HVi LCD TV presents consumers with a compelling alternative to similar sized plasma TVs.

“We are confident that our 42-inch Olevia LCD TV with Super-IPS and Syntax’s iDEA technology is the ideal ‘cross-over’ product for consumers who desire an affordable large format digital TV that they can enjoy for an extended number of years without the negative attributes associated with plasma TVs,” said James Li, Chief Executive Officer of Syntax Groups. “As more consumers increase their awareness of plasma’s high power consumption, heat and fan noise, plus image burn-in effects and shorter life cycle, our high value 42-inch Olevia will be their obvious choice.”

The Olevia LT42HVi is the latest model to include Syntax’s proprietary “iDEA”(Innovative Digitally Enhanced Architecture) digital video processing technology, a suite of built-in and user-selectable video/audio features delivering crisp, clear pictures with precise colors, sharp resolutions and audio synchronization through its advance digital sound processor (DSP).

Key features of the Olevia LT42HVi include:

· High-quality 42-inch widescreen Super-IPS LCD panel with 16:9 aspect ratio

· HD built-in with de-interlacing up to 1080i

· Dual progressive component scan inputs with 3:2 pulldown

· User selectable audio equalizer preset modes and reverb effects

The Olevia LT42HVi’s two 25-watt stereo enhanced surround sound detachable speakers can be mounted either horizontally at the base of the TV, or vertically on each side, or completely removed for users who want to customize their sound system. A newly designed stand featuring a rounded footprint is detachable for users who want to wall mount the Olevia LT42HVi.
