Collins America has announced a group of display and TV products engineered to radically expand the capabilities of today's Apple computer systems. The new products include 24-inch and 47-inch HD LCD displays, both with native Mini DisplayPort connections, and a full featured headless TV system with full HD TV features, as well as Mini DisplayPort connections both in an out.

"We believe that tomorrow’s graphics and video experiences simply are not going to be the same as yesterday’s, and that Apple will continue to lead and define the path forward for consumer video entertainment. An investment made into a display product today should lead to many years of easy integration with your home video lifestyle. With Apple’s implementation of Mini DisplayPort connectors on its computers, and with HDMI on its Apple TV, these two interfaces define the future of Apple-centric video."

The two new CinemaView displays have the 16:9 cinematic aspect ratio and 1920x1080 resolution that is well suited for viewing either movies, HD TV, or data. One of these displays makes a terrific companion to a Mac, connecting by Mini DisplayPort, and routing USB 2.0 through the same cable from the Mac to the display's four port USB 2.0 hub.

The CinemaView TV product turns a CinemaView display into a full-blown HD television system, in addition to enabling direct connection to both a Mac and an Apple TV, too. Plug a 24 inch or 47 inch CinemaView display into the Mini DisplayPort output, connect your favorite TV peripherals by HDMI, composite, or component links, connect your Mac to the Mini DisplayPort input and your Apple TV to an HDMI input. CinemaView TV has dual cable-ready HD tuners with picture-in-picture, and includes easy-to-use on-screen controls, and an RF wireless remote. Inserting a CinemaView TV box between a Mac and either an Apple LED LCD Cinema Display or a CinemaView display turns any new Mac system into a complete HD home television system.

Together, these three new products open an expanded world of options, from simply connecting one of the displays to a Mac, using one of the displays with the TV box, or combining a Mac, the TV box, and one of the displays, as well as any other HDMI-connected peripherals into a full featured home video entertainment system, all using the high bandwidth and high quality Mini DisplayPort interface found on all new Apple Mac computers.

The CinemaView 24 LCD display will be available in October 2009 with a USA list price of $499. The CinemaView 47 LCD display will be available in January 2010 with a USA list price of $1499. And, the CInemaView TV will be available in January 2010 with a US list price of $399. All three products are built using our UniFrame™ Aluminum construction that precisely matches the design theme of current Apple computers. And, the entire approach taken in designing the products is aimed to please the most ardent Mac fans.

CinemaView products will be available from the CinemaView web site, from Apple Specialist retailers across the USA, and from hundreds of independent Apple product and custom home theater and AV contractors and resellers around the world.

CinemaView products can be reserved now from the CinemaView web site. Customers placing reservations before October 1, 2009 will receive free shipping to USA, Canada, and EU destinations.
