Available in Six Fashionable Colors, Foldable Unit Is 1080i Compatible; Complete Line of Eviant Portable Digital TVs to Be Introduced at 2009 CES
La Verne, CA - January 6, 2009 - Eviant™, Inc., a designer and marketer of stylish portable and home entertainment products, will be launching its lineup of portable, widescreen LCD TVs at the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (South Hall 2 -25553). The line features a fashion -forward look and the same picture quality and features of larger digital sets. 'The Sheet' series from Eviant is engineered to ensure consumers will continue to have access to their favorite programs virtually anywhere they go after the switchover to all digital programming in February 2009.
The largest model in 'The Sheet' line is the foldable 19 -inch model T19. The innovative docking station makes the T19 easy to store and transport, making it perfect for the office, kitchen, or den, without sacrificing quality or breaking a budget. With sleek laptop -like styling and available in a wide range of fun, fashionable colors, the set is not only efficient, but trendsetting as well.
"Our 19 -inch digital portable Eviant TV will be feature packed," remarked Jerry Galya, Eviant Vice President of Sales and Marketing. "Plus, its six fashion colors will allow consumers to express their personal style or coordinate their TVs with the décor of any room. It is perfect for anyone wanting a larger portable TV."
Switch to Digital TV
Eviant is introducing digital portable televisions in response to the switch from analog signal to digital. Beginning February 17, 2009, the analog portable and small television sets that consumers have enjoyed for decades will cease operation, unless they are hooked -up to a bulky digital TV converter box.
This will cause problems anywhere space is limited as well as force people to carry a digital TV tuner along with the set. In many cases, converter boxes are larger than the TV itself, defeating their portable, take -anywhere nature.
The innovative and affordable 'The Sheet' digital series from Eviant, including this 19 -inch set, eliminates that problem. It picks up free digital channels with no need for additional hardware or subscription services. Or if a consumer wishes, he or she can hook it up to an existing subscription service.
The unit's 16:9 TFT LCD color display, 16.7 -million colors, 5ms response time, and high contrast ratio of 850:1 assure viewers of a bright, crystal -clear picture. It comes with a full set of input and output connections, including ATSC/NTSC tuner, HDMI, S -video, VGA and composite video inputs, audio output and a headphone jack for private use.
Other features include 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i digital compatibility. It also comes with progressive scan, scaling, 3D comb filter, preprogrammed picture control, automatic format conversion, multilingual on -screen menus and picture adjustment.
It will be available in glossy black, red, pink, green, blue and white. Built -in stereo speakers, a slim design and included AC adapter, remote control and protective carrying pouch ensure that the unit is ready to pick up and go at any time.
Pricing and Availability
'The Sheet' 19 -inch digital portable TV from Eviant will be available in Q1 2009 at department stores, drugstores and a variety of other nationwide retailers. It will carry as estimated street price of $299.99.
