Continuing its market momentum for delivering high value LCD TVs at consumer-friendly, affordable prices, Syntax Groups Corporation(tm), a complete vertically-integrated R&D, manufacturing and channel sales company of digital convergence consumer electronics products, today announced that its high value Olevia(tm) brand of LCD TVs are available at Micro CenterÂs network of technology stores throughout the United States.
Micro Center, a destination retailer designed to satisfy dedicated computer users, selected the Syntax Olevia 27-inch and 30-inch models as the first brand of HD-ready LCD TVs for their 20 nationwide locations because of OleviaÂs unique, richly-appointed PC-like features at cost-effective prices. The Syntax Olevia 27-inch and 30-inch LCD TVs provide best of breed features including dual TV tuners, VGA and TV split screens, DVI inputs with HDCP, ultra-thin flat panel LCD screens, high contrast ratios, fast refresh rates and response times, and 14-16 rows of transistors for bright displays. Consumers can connect the Olevia LCD TV to a PC for watching TV or movies on one half of the display while checking email or surfing the Internet on the opposite side.
ÂSyntax Olevia LCD TVs are all about value to the consumer,Â said Denis Karpeles, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Syntax Groups Corporation. ÂThese HD-ready TVs are manufactured with the same or better specifications of national brands, but for much less in price. We are delighted to be a partner with Micro Center as they penetrate a new market segment.Â
ÂIn the short time that we have featured the Olevia brand, Micro Center consumers have shown a considerable amount of interest in these LCD TVs for their breadth of functionality at a competitively low price,Â said Sean Beaupre, Merchandise Manager for Displays and Notebook PCs at Micro Center.
The Olevia LCD TVs blend high quality entertainment images, robust functionality, optimum affordability, stylish design and quality with the companyÂs unique customer-friendly free first-year on-site warranty service program.
