NuVision, the Phoenix-based manufacturer of high-end LCD and LED flat panels, has notified its creditors that it is liquidating all its assets and shutting down.

It was rumored in July 2011 that NuVision was attempting some sort of reorganization. The company was backed by Cat Trail Capital, an investment firm.

A letter from a law firm representing the board of directors was sent to unsecured creditors on Sept. 9. It states: “Please be advised that due to the continued distressed economic situation that the company has experienced over the last several years, the Company’s Board of Directors has made the decision to liquidate the assets of the company and commence winding up of the Company.” Click here to view entire letter (.PDF).

The letter goes on to inform unsecured creditors that NuVision’s liabilities to its secured creditor “far exceed the Company’s assets,” and it is unlikely that unsecured creditors will receive anything. 

NuVision products were once highly praised by integrators for their quality and higher prices that maintained some dealer margin. NuVision had tried to step into the void left when Pioneer Elite dropped its factory direct sales program for its flat panels. At CEDIA Expo 2010 in Atlanta, NuVision’s Lucidium NVUFX5LS Super Slim Edge Lit LED LCD was a finalist in the Sustainable Lifestyle Product Innovation category.
