size in the second quarter of 2005.

window, a V-chip and closed caption, as well as provides connectiions to other devices through multiple composite, component, S-video, analog RGB and DVI

Home entertainment and digital signage experiences are further enhanced with two
12-watt stereo speakers, SRS virtual sound capability and a universal remote
that is capable of controlling a variety of peripherals, including set-top boxes,
VCRs, DVD players and gaming consoles.
