Two RCA Blu-ray Home Theater systems offer a range of choices for viewers wanting to add audio power to their flat-screen monitors. The RCA Home Theater System with Blu-ray player, model RTB1023, boasts 500 watts of audio power and features HDMI V1.3 1080p output, BD-Live Profile 2.0 connectivity, and the ability to stream Vudu movies and apps, Netflix movies, and Pandora streamed audio content.

Small Screen RCA Mobility
At the other end of the spectrum is a full lineup of small screen RCA televisions, specially designed for portability and convenience. From “AA” battery operated models to accessory adapters for an automobile video system and larger models ideal for tailgate parties, favorite channels are moving out of the house with the help of these portable TV products from RCA.
A line of hybrid RCA portable TV models feature reception for both standard digital and Mobile DTV signals. More than 70 TV stations around the U.S. are now broadcasting in Mobile DTV, which offers the convenience of watching TV while in the back seat of a moving vehicle or a train. Mobile DTV is ideal for virtually any “on the go” activity, bringing the convenience of local news, weather, sports and traffic to the supermarket line or Little League baseball game.
The top-of-the-line for Mobile DTV products is the 7-inch widescreen DMT270R, a hybrid Mobile DTV that also receives standard digital TV signals. With an 800×400 high resolution widescreen display, the DMT270R also has a built-in rechargeable battery and 500:1 contrast ratio. It is available at a suggested retail price of $149 from RCAPortableTV.com.
Hybrid Mobile DTV and standard digital TV reception is also a feature of the 3.5” RCA DMT336R, which features a built-in rechargeable battery and is available in either a black or white finish. With four hours of playback time, the DMT336R also adds FM radio functionality and is available now from RCAPortableTV.com at a suggested retail price of $159.
Hybrid model DMT335R features standard and Mobile DTV reception in a compact cabinet that runs on “AA” batteries. With a 3.5” screen, the DMT335R has a suggested retail price of $119 and is available from RCAPortableTV.com.
Rounding out the hybrid Mobile DTV offerings is a tiny TV receiver designed to plug directly into an automobile or van video infotainment system. Smaller than a deck of cards, the RCA Pocket Mobile DTV Car Tuner/Receiver, model DMT3BR, receives both standard and Mobile DTV broadcasts and is powered by a car charger. With an easy “plug-and-play” connection to infotainment systems, the DMT3BR is available from RCAPortableTV.com at a suggested retail price of $129.
Ideal for an emergency preparedness kit, the 3.5” RCA Portable TV, model DHT235C, operates on “AA” batteries and can tune over-the-air digital TV broadcasts from a stationary position. While not designed to receive Mobile DTV signals, it’s an excellent companion when skies turn dark and the family has to seek shelter. The DHT235C is available now at a suggested retail price of $80 from RadioShack and from RCAPortableTV.com.
Three new TV/DVD combination portable TV products offer AC/DC operation for the car, truck, or boat. The RCA 19-inch class TV/DVD combo, model DECK18DR, can play favorite DVD movies or receive over-the-air broadcasts.
