Thomson Multimedia Unveils RCA Scenium Line
"The name "Scenium" is derived from the Latin word proscenium -- the arch or frame of a theatre stage that separates the entertainers from the audience," read a July 12 press release. "To the ancient Greeks, this was their portal to an evening of entertainment." RCA Scenium products will feature a "combination of technological innovation, expressive design, and exceptional ease-of-use."
The RCA Scenium line includes five high-definition digital video products---a Liquid Crystal On Silicon (LCOS) high-definition TV, a 65-inch projection HDTV, a 50-inch widescreen Digital Plasma HDTV and two flat-tube HDTV Monitors. Eventually, Scenium series products will include many other types of home entertainment devices, according to a July 12 announcement. "RCA Scenium combines world-class innovation and expressive design to provide an exceptional entertainment experience," said Mike O'Hara.
"The L50000 Liquid Crystal on Silicon HDTV is the star of the RCA Scenium range, with a 50-inch, brilliant super-bright widescreen, and a family-room friendly footprint that's 18-inches thin and weighs only about one hundred pounds. Videophiles have been waiting for a chance to gaze at the incredible new LCOS high-definition television," O'Hara said. Other RCA Scenium products are the 50-inch widescreen PHD50300 Digital Plasma HDTV Monitor, the fully-integrated 65-inch widescreen HD65W20 projection HDTV set, and two standard (4:3) aspect ratio HDTV monitors with "TruFlat" tube technology -- the 32-inch D32TF20 and the 36-inch D36TF20.
"We know that the RCA name is already one of the most popular and trusted names in electronics, recently ranked by a Harris Poll as one of the ten best consumer products brands," O'Hara mentioned. "We intend to polish that image with the introduction of advanced RCA Scenium range of products." Delivery on Scenium products will begin later this summer. To learn more, visit the Scenium website.
