Medion has announced it is launching a 32-inch High Definition (HD) ready LCD television, for under £600.
The Medion MD 20099 offers WXGA 1366 x 768 picture resolution and uses CTI, 3D comb filter and noise reduction technology to enhance the quality of the High Definition picture.
Typical brightness is 550 cd/m2 with a contrast ratio of 1000:1, providing a sharp, clear image. Stereo Nicam sound is delivered by 2 x 10 Watt RMS outputs, supported by a five band equalizer for rich, precise sound quality.
The set also features dual tuner PIP (picture in picture) with Multipicture, enabling viewing of a second channel in a thumbnail window, and PAT (picture and text), which shows a picture and Teletext simultaneously on a split screen.
Connections included are an HDMI socket with HDCP encoding, 75 Ohm antenna in, PC VGA in (15 pin D-Sub), S-Video In, Audio L/R In (Cinch, with optional YPbPr Video In), two SCART ports and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
