Apparently, Norcent isn't the only scarcely-mentioned company busting out
some new kit at CES, as SOYO is also gearing up to show off a pair of impressive HDTVs in Vegas next week. It seems as though the firm is ditching the whole "bigger is better" mantra, and is instead focusing on squeezing more pixels into tighter spaces. The unnamed 32-inch plasma will feature a presumably sub-1080p resolution, a 1,500:1 contrast ratio, 500 nits of brightness, twin HDMI inputs, a single component / two composite inputs, S/PDIF audio out and a remarkable $499 price tag. As for the LCD, this 24-incher will boast a full 1080p resolution, a pair of HDMI / component jacks, picture-in-picture functionality, 500 cd/m2 brightness, a three-millisecond response time, 1,000:1 contrast ratio and an MSRP of $699. Sadly, we've no clue when either of these sets will be available for purchase, but hopefully it'll be sooner rather than later.
