The round out a family that now includes 32-inch to 55-inch displays.

The new models offer 1080p resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate setting, increasing the clarity of movement and reducing image blur. Additionally, the E461 and E551 include built-in features, such as an ATSC/NTSC/QAM tuner, 12W stereo speakers, and detachable swivel stand. Power consumption goes as low as 210W, according to NEC. Connectivity features include four HDMI inputs, analog RGB, composite video, and S-Video.

"The addition of both the E461 and E551 allow for flexibility in a variety of deployments," said Keith Yanke, director of product marketing for large-screen displays and projectors at NEC Display Solutions, in a statement.

The E461 and E551 also sport up to a 5,000:1 typical contrast ratio; built-in closed captioning; integrated CONEQ Sound technology, which allows users to set and correct acoustical sound output to compensate for different settings; a JPEG Viewer, which allows users to view images and set up slideshows using a USB device; backlight adjustment, which allows users to customize the backlight strength, enabling longer display life and lower power consumption; and input labeling, which allows users to assign labels to various inputs within the on-screen display.

The E461 and E551 will be available for August 2010 shipment at an estimated street price of $999 and $1,499, respectively, company officials said. Both displays are backed with a one-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight.
