There were no 16-bit TVs in 2007...
There are lots of LUTs (look-up tables) higher than 10-bit but that it something entirely different.
A 12-bit TV would require a 12-bit display panel and those panels do not exist for the mass consumer market at this time. It's largely irrelevant that an internal processing step or an HDMI sink can process/take 12-bit if the panel cannot operate and display 12-bit.
