Mirroring the stylish appeal, trend-setting design and high performance of the company’s current PFM42B1 flat panel monitor, the new model is designed for the consumer marketplace and has the style to dress up the decor of any room in the home.
The unit features a 16:9 screen framed in a slender, brushed silver cabinet. It also includes a detachable stand for tabletop viewing or wall mounting in media entertainment rooms, bedrooms, exercise rooms, kitchens or home offices. When placed on a coffee table or in an entertainment center, the tabletop stand on the Sony plasma monitor serves to conceal wire connections, creating a polished, elegant look. “From a form factor point-of-view, the sleek size, layout and depth of the new Sony plasma display makes it a distinctive choice and focal point in creating a modern day `room-with-a-view’ look,” said Lisa Baldino, marketing manager of Sony Electronics’ Display Systems Division. “Equally appealing is the plasma’s display, which offers high brightness and superbly detailed images in either standard or digital formats.”
The new plasma monitor/receiver showcases detailed images in either 4:3 or 16:9 picture formats from such sources as DVDs, cable boxes, satellite receivers and DTV set top boxes. It also has flexible video inputs, including component and S-video, as well as computer.
The Sony plasma display with built-in tuner and speakers will be available early next year.
