Sceptre, which describes itself as "a leading innovator for LCD/HDTV for over 27 years," unveiled its 2012 lineup of HDTVs during CES 2012 in Las Vegas, including 3D televisions with integrated Blu-ray, a world's first, according to the company. Sharp would disagree, having unveiled a pair of 3DTVs with built-in Blu-ray players back in 2010, but unlike Sharp's devices, Sceptre's screen will ship in the U.S. sometime this year.
More accurately, Sceptre's set is the first 42-inch LED with integrated Blu-ray, a claim we're unable to disprove with a quick Google search. It's part of Sceptre's 3D DVD Series, which will also include a 32-inch set with a built-in DVD player.
Sceptre has plenty on tap for 2012, including:
3D LED Series: 3D LED HDTVs in 32-inch, 42-inch, and 55-inch sizes featuring 1920x1080 resolution and polarized glasses.
