Minimalist Metz Axio Pros meet the PVR


German TV maestros Metz have released details on three new ‘Axio pro’ LCD televisions, all sporting the company’s trademark clean design and minimalist lines.

All three models are available now at $2999, $3499 and $3999 for the 32 inch, 37 inch and 42 inch respectively, bringing you full HD resolution, MPEG4 HD TV tuners, 100Hz motion technology and SRS Wow surround audio. An additional novel feature in the form of an integrated timeshifting capability can be initiated by a single button press on the TV’s remote, caching the program for up to two hours via an attached external USB or hard drive.


Metz also offers its customers the option of ‘retrofitting’ a 500GB or 250GB digital recorder to get a fully-integrated PVR in your TV, a second HD TV tuner or even a DVB-S2 tuner for FTA digital satellite.

All models have three HDMI inputs, one DVI-I for a PC connection and can be experienced at specialist dealers nationwide.
