Orange, CA – The Westinghouse 26′ 1080p LED HDTV is going to be a TV star this summer.
Starting later this week, Steve Greenberg, the Innovation Insider and author of Gadget Nation, will be featuring the LED HDTV on his Back to School Tour in Seattle, New York City, Philadelphia, Washington
DC, Houston, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Chicago, and on the syndicated talk show ‘DayTime.’ Steve will be highlighting how the LD-2685 is the perfect space saving HD television/gaming/computer monitor all-in-one for any dorm room at an amazingly affordable estimated street price of $ 379. The LD-2685 combines sleek styling, extraordinary picture quality and industry-leading energy efficiency to set a new benchmark in LED HDTV value. Steve’s major in-studio tour will feature the hottest and newest innovations for the Back To School market.
Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing says, ‘We’re very excited to announce the 26′ 1080p as the latest edition to our LED product line. We feel that the new 26′ 1080p will have the same success that the 26′ 720p and 32′ 720p are having at warehouse clubs, discounters, and mass merchants. Westinghouse Digital is becoming well known as the company that delivers forward thinking technology at affordable prices.’
Steve Greenberg added, ‘My job is to showcase the latest and greatest innovations. The LD-2685 is a perfect fit. It’s both a television and computer monitor at an incredible value. You can’t do better than this. Just a few years ago you had to pay triple the price to get what Westinghouse Digital is offering today. During these tough economic times it’s especially important to find products that are true values. It’s one thing for a company to be innovative. It certainly is another when a company can offer top quality features at the most affordable pricing.’
The LD-2685 is also gorgeous to look at. The unit boasts a sleek industrial design with a high-gloss black frame, complemented with understated red accents for a graceful, modern look. It’s only about one inch thick at the TV’s visible edges. The set also features an edge-lit LED system that provides a remarkably vivid picture, thanks to high contrast ratios. This outstanding gradient light ability results in extremely detailed color representation for a bright and beautiful picture. The LD-2685 features a 1920 x 1080 resolution, 16Ã 9 aspect ratio and features 2 HDMI, 1 Component and 1 VGA input.
Continuing with Westinghouse’s tradition of industry-leading energy efficiency for its TVs, the new LD-2685 is also extremely eco-friendly. The 26′ LD-2685 exceeds Energy Star 5.0 ratings, which are slated to go into effect in 2012. Most consumers will be surprised to find that using a 45-watt light bulb will actually consume more electricity than the 26′ LD-2685. The LED line packaging process is eco efficient as well. The product box is made of recyclable materials and uses soy based ink.
Westinghouse’s new LED lineup combines the styling of the highest-end HDTVs with the dramatic performance benefits of advanced LED picture technology, all at values that are comparable to conventional LCD TV price points.
The LD-2685 will be available in mid-August with an estimated street price of $ 379.
