Westinghouse on Tuesday introduced new lines of digital TVs, ranging from high-resolution sets to combo TV/DVD products and portable televisions.

The highest-resolution sets are the TX Series, which are all 1080p LCD TVs. The sets, which have a display resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels, range in size from 42 inches to 52 inches. Westinghouse also introduced a 1080p combo DVD-TV with a 40-inch screen.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price for the TX Series starts at $1,199 for the smallest set to $1,599 for the 52-inch model. The combo set has a street price of $1,099.

The lower-resolution SK and W series digital TVs have screen sizes of 26 and 32 inches, while the PT Series portables have displays of 16 and 19 inches. The SK and W series are 720p LCD sets, which have resolutions of 1,366 by 768 pixels.

Some TVs within the SK Series include built-in DVD players. Those sets have an estimated street price of $649 for the 26-inch screen and $849 for 32 inches. Without the DVD player, the sets are $599 and $749, respectively.

The PT Series is priced at $279 for the 16-inch model and $379 for the 19-inch version. The W Series has a MSRP of $699 for the 32-inch version and $379 for the 26-inch model.

Westinghouse is one of many companies offering digital TVs of multiple resolutions and size. Competitors include Sharp, Samsung, Sony, and Hitachi. HDTVs with LCD screens are selling faster than traditional CRT TVs and are expected to eventually surpass the latter. The U.S. installed base of HDTVs was estimated at 30 million sets at the beginning of the year, according to TVPredicitons.com.
