Consumer electronics maker Brillian Corporation (Tempe, AZ, U.S.) announced its new 65-in rear projection high-definition television (HDTV) that said to be designed specifically for built-in applications such as home theaters and conference rooms.

According to the company, the 65-in diagonal, 21-in deep HDTV monitor fits standard 60-in-wide new HDTV bays and allows AV system designers to conceal the housing of the TV. Only 2.5-in of screen depth is visible when mounted in-wall providing the design aesthetics of a flat-screen monitor.

"Many high-end HDTVs are designed into wall-based entertainment bays," said Vincent Sollitto Jr., president and CEO Brillian Corp. "Our new 720 p product configuration was designed specifically to meet this need. It offers outstanding picture quality in virtually any lighting, software flexibility, and interoperability with automation systems -- making it ideal for both home entertainment and commercial applications where superb picture quality is required."

The Brillian 6501mFB HDTV features UltraContrast(TM) technology, reportedly delivering on-screen Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) contrast ratios-up of up to 2000:1. The unit also features a 170-degree viewing angle and three (1280x720) megapixel (720p) light engine. In addition, the unit has an integrated RS232 control and upgradeable software platform that enables new features to be added as they are developed.

The BR6501mFB monitor is available to home theater dealers and retailers through Electrograph Systems Inc. and to ProAV dealers through Starin Marketing with a MSRP of U.S. $7,999.
