Some Olevia LCD HDTVs also incorporate new features that provide for enhanced user experiences including additional HDMI inputs and two USB ports. Users of theses Olevia models will be able to utilize these inputs not only to connect the TV to home entertainment equipment easier, but also to connect USB thumb drives or PCs to their TVs to install firmware upgrades, and use the TV to display photos or play MP3 music files through a home theater audio system.

The technology demonstration units on display in the Olevia booth are expected to comprise the core of new lines of Olevia LCD HDTVs scheduled to debut in the second quarter of 2008.
