Orange, CA – Westinghouse Digital, one of the leading LCD TV manufacturers in the U.S, is making it possible for consumers to own the latest HDTV technology at a more affordable price than ever before. Westinghouse Digital is pleased to introduce the latest member of their brand new LED line, the 42” 1080p LD-4255. The latest release in the Westinghouse LED line combines top of the line picture quality, sleek design featuring a high-gloss black frame, complemented by understated red accents and industry-leading energy efficiency to set a new benchmark in LED HDTV value.

The 42” LD-4255 is ideal for the consumer looking to achieve a home theater experience in any room of the house. The set is only about 1.25 inches thick at the TV’s visible edges and features an edge-lit LED system that provides a remarkably vivid picture, thanks to a high contrast ratio and a 120Hz refresh rate. This outstanding gradient light ability results in extremely detailed color representation for a stunning picture. The LD-4255 features 1920 x 1080 resolution, 16×9 aspect ratio and has 2 HDMI, 1 Composite and 1 VGA/Component input and is easily wall mountable weighing a mere 30 pounds.

Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing says, “We’re very excited about the arrival of the LD-4255. The brand new 42” 1080p combines the latest LED technologies with an attractive design and remarkable energy efficiency. The set’s high contrast ratios and quick refresh rate make the LD-4255 a great choice for the consumer looking to get a true home theater experience.”

Continuing with Westinghouse Digital’s tradition of industry-leading energy efficiency for its TVs, the new LD-4255 is also extremely eco-friendly. The 42” LD-4255 exceeds Energy Star 5.0 ratings, which are slated to go into effect in 2012. The LD-4255 only consumes about 80 watts of power– 30% lower than today’s most stringent Energy Star requirement. Even the LED line packaging process is eco-efficient. The product box is made of recycled materials, is recyclable and uses soy based ink.

Westinghouse Digital’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-4255 will be available at retail in mid-September with an estimated street price of $749.
