HP unveils high-definition TV line

Hewlett-Packard on Thursday announced a slew of new television models in its Pavilion line that boost visual fidelity by incorporating the company's "wobulation" technology.

The set of new entertainment products includes high-definition microdisplay rear-projection TVs, HD plasma displays and three HD liquid crystal displays, the company said. The rear-projection TVs incorporate the wobulation technology, which jitters the projected image in a carefully controlled way that effectively replaces a single pixel with four.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company is marketing the feature as HP Visual Fidelity. "This is the first product HP is bringing to market with wobulation," said Matt Schulz, product manager for HP's microdisplay TVs. The products are due to arrive at smaller electronics retailers such as Tweeters and Good Guys in August, he added, but declined to give pricing details beyond saying the products will be competitive.
