- 23", 27", 30 and 32”" models can also be used as a PC monitor
- Super-fast response times banishes picture "ghosting"
- Supports HDTV (High Definition TV)
- Full 3-year warranty

Swindon, England – 20 January 2005 - Tatung, the Taiwanese electronics giant, has introduced a new range of widescreen LCD televisions to the UK market, offering unrivalled price/performance and an inclusive 3-year warranty. RRPs on the new models are "highly competitive", says Tatung, starting at £745 inc VAT (23").

Manufactured by Tatung in Holland, the new models feature a sleek, silver design with built-in NICAM stereo speakers and are HDTV (High Definition TV) compatible. The LCD panel resolution is 1280 x 768 (WXGA) with a super-fine pixel pitch of 0.4 – 0.5 mm, dependent on model.

Tatung technology overcomes the problems of picture "ghosting" apparent on inferior manufacturers' LCD TVs. "Ghosting" or "after imaging" is the result of slow response times – the time it takes for the individual pixels to switch on/off. Most other manufacturers' LCD TVs take 25ms to respond, meaning fast-moving action and sports appear blurred on the TV. Tatung's latest technology offers super-fast response time of half that (ave 12.5ms).

"Picture quality is vital in this market," commented Mark Burnett of Tatung UK. "When you invest in an LCD TV you don't want to take a step backwards in quality. Buyers should take a good look at some of competitors' TVs – it can be impossible to follow the ball when watching sports because of ghosting, for example."

Use it with a PC!
The new LCD panels from Tatung can also be used as a super-size monitor for a desktop PC. The supplied, standard VGA cable simply plugs into a PC in place of the usual screen to provide a panoramic PC experience.

New models in the range include: 32" - £1408 inc VAT; 30" - £1291 inc VAT; 27" - £1056 inc VAT; 23" – £745 in VAT. Prices include swivel base and remote control. An optional VESA wall mount kit is available.
