Sceptre Makes 4K Attainable with U500 UHD TV
49-inch Ultra HD resolution and SRS TruSurround HD technology deliver lifelike images and immersive sound for a complete sensory experience
City of Industry, Calif. October 13, 2014 Sceptre pushes the boundaries of technology and affordability once again with their newest UHD TV, a 49-inch unit with 4K resolution. Equipped with a multitude of cutting-edge features, including an ultra-sharp display, SRS TruSurround HD technology and MHL connectivity, Sceptres U500 UHD TV takes home entertainment to a new dimension.
Sceptres U500 UHD TV showcases a 3840×2160 resolution screen that is 4 times sharper and clearer than traditional Full HD units, sharp and clear enough to see a blade of grass move on the football field. The ultra-precise pixels are complemented by SRS TruSurround HD, an industry leading sound technology for HDTVs that delivers immersive surround sound that encloses the audience regardless of their location in the room.
The TV industry has been inundated with 4K TVs with niche technology that results in unattainable prices for the general consumer, says Cathy Chou, vice president of operations, Sceptre. Having the best and newest is a plus, but we believe that the majority of consumers still prefer a balance of performance, quality, technology and affordability.
Sceptres 49-inch 4K UHD TV showcases a new minimalistic look designed to maximize viewing space and eliminate clutter. The ultra-thin bezel is highlighted by a halo style steel base that exudes simplicity. The U500 UHD TV comes equipped with 3 HDMI ports; HDCP 2.2, the next generation 4K copy protection; and MHL, which allows consumers to display their MHL enabled smartphones content to a larger screen while charging the device.
The U500 UHD TV is Energy Star V6.1 compliant, is neck and base detachable for easy moving and wall mounting, and features both true 4K and upscaling 4K viewing technology in case 4K content is not readily available. Upscaling 4K viewing is the process of upgrading lower resolution content by increasing it for enhanced viewing.
Sceptres U500 UHD TV is now available at Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sams Club, Target Sears Marketplace and Walmart. For more information about this or the entire line of Sceptre products, please visit www.sceptre.com or contact Pedro Chen.
