Business appliance maker HP signed a U.S. distribution agreement for its award-winning line of digital televisions with consumer electronics and appliance retailer Best Buy Co., Inc.

Beginning in late April 2006, Best Buy stores throughout the U.S. will offer HP high-definition (HD) TVs, including LCD and plasma models. In late August, Best Buy will add HP's MediaSmart TVs in some U.S. markets.

Reportedly the industry's first TV to connect home networks to home entertainment systems, the HP MediaSmart TV allows customers to access music, movies, photos and videos stored on any PC or notebook computer and to enjoy them in any room of the house.

HP's latest lines of LCD and plasma HDTVs have a dynamic contrast ratio of 6,000:1 and a 6 ms refresh rate that is said to virtually eliminate motion blur. The 37-inch and 32-inch LCD models feature the company's Visual Fidelity technologies, which combine information about a room's ambient lighting with photorealistic sharpness enhancement and a 3-D color enrichment system to deliver enhanced detail and color.

HP's 2006 line of plasma HDTVs, including 50-inch and 42-inch models, display more than 1 billion colors and have a contrast ratio of 10,000:1. The company says they feature ultra-long life panels and integrated HDTV/analog tuners so viewers can watch HD or standard broadcasts with a cable box or off-the-air antenna.
