LT-26X576 • LT-32X576
The LT-26X576 (26”) and LT-32X576 (32”) feature JVC’s 4th generation
Digital Image Scaling Technology (D.I.S.T.) that upconverts any video
source to 770p and GENESSA, a new 32-bit CPU dedicated to
controlling picture refinement. These proprietary technologies work
in tandem to optimize image quality regardless of the source, and to
deliver a smooth picture while enhancing vertical resolution. Another
exclusive is JVC’s 5-Point Color Management that samples red, green,
blue, yellow and flesh tones and adjusts each separately to delivers
vivid color reproduction.
They also include JVC’s HD DSD (Digital Super Detail) edge enhancement
which is active on still, fast and slow motion areas of the picture for
crisp defined edges. JVC further enhances the home theater entertainment
experience by adding Dynamic Gamma Control Circuitry and home theater
features that include TheaterPro D6500K Color Temperature, Digital Noise Clear
circuitry and XDS ID display.

Digital Super Detail
◆
◆
◆
Keeping images in focus during high action
scenes is often a challenge for any television
display because they are often low contrast
scenes from the source. JVC’s exclusive
state-of-the-art HD Range 75MHz Digital
Super Detail works to insure that images are
always reproduced with a minimum of that
inevitable and unwanted blur.
Digital Super Detail is always on so you don’t
have to think about it, and it is always working to reproduce completely focused images
for both still and high action scenes alike. In
typical high action scenes there is often less
contrast on the edges of the fast moving
objects which appears as unwanted blur. For
these scenes Digital Super Detail enhances
the edges from moving objects to minimize
blur. For minimal action scenes Digital Super
Detail adds a natural compensation for slow
motion and eliminates edge glare from still
images for a beautiful picture all the time.
4MB 3D Y/C comb filter samples between
frames to drastically reduce dot crawl, color
bleeding, and other cross color interference
for a clear, sharp picture. A separate,
dedicated luminance noise reducing filter
adds even more fine tuning for larger-sized
panel displays.

4th Generation D.I.S.T. with GENESSA 770p
◆
Digital scaling technologies are an absolute necessity for any brand of high definition display,
because the majority of signal sources still are not HD. Without proper scaling, the limitations of
original video sources are readily apparent. For example, while flat panel HDTVs have the
capacity to reproduce high quality images from high-definition sources, when it comes to older
video sources like classic TV sitcoms and DVDs, the HDTVs are almost over-qualified and their
limitations are actually magnified on the screen. For example, a DVD is a typical 480i source but
an LCD is a 770p display.
◆
JVC’s 4th generation D.I.S.T. (Digital Image Scaling technology) detects and seamlessly converts
any video source to 770p through the use of exclusive algorithm technology. Jagged lines
inherent in the original source are smoothed and vertical resolution enhanced thus insuring
superior resolution and dynamic cinema-like picture. But it doesn’t stop there. They also include
the new GENESSA chip—the world’s first CPU dedicated to image processing. GENESSA
provides 32-bit “turbo” powered picture processing to insure faster and more efficient sampling
that drastically reduces jagged edges and increases the resolution of any video source.
Motion Adaptive Dynamic Gamma Control
◆ Flat panel displays can sometimes be inefficient at reproducing smooth grayscales—especially
under demanding conditions such as high motion scenes. Therefore, all better panel display
employ some form of gamma control so that darker areas don’t lack detail and appear muddied.
JVC’s exclusive Motion Adaptive Dynamic Gamma Control is a highly sophisticated algorithm
that utilizes data from every signal level, and then specifically targets only areas of highly dark
image data so that the entire processing power can work in trouble areas alone. This allows
Dynamic Gamma Control to concentrate more completely than standard dynamic gamma
features that apply the process to the entire picture. Dynamic Gamma Control is always on and
always working so that tonal gradations are preserved and darker images never appear
muddied on these flat panel displays.
◆ They incorporate Digital Noise Clear Circuitry to enhance the video quality from less than
perfect sources by reducing the video snow found on older videos such as rentals and home
movies. It also helps to reduce the snowy lines attributed to poor tracking settings on VCRs.

High Performance Audio
◆ They are equipped with an exclusive sound
package so there is no need that includes
Oblique Cone Speakers with 20-watts of
total audio power, Advanced Hyper
Surround, Advanced Hyper Bass and BBE
High Definition Audio.
– Designed with the voice coil off-axis, the
Oblique Cone Speakers project sound
upwards towards the viewer for better sound
dispersion.
– Advanced Hyper Surround (AHS) creates a
3-dimensional soundfield while using the
TV’s front speakers. “Virtual speakers”
electronically process stereo audio signals
and manipulate the phase relationships and
frequency responses for a fuller 3-D effect.
5-point Color Management System (CMS)
JVC’s exclusive 5-point Coor Management System (CMS) uses a unique pin-point color sampling
process that produces image color purity all the time. By applying pin-point sampling to each
color range, CMS determines which colors require softening and which require toning down. The
process insures that colors are never harsh or muddied but always natural and pure.
• Point 1 samples greens so they appear bright and not yellowed
• Point 2 samples yellows so that they never appear harsh or green
• Point 3 samples reds so they appear fresh and don’t take on a bluish cast
• Point 4 samples blues so they are not muddied by greens
• Point 5 samples flesh tones so that they always appear warm and natural
D6500K TheaterPro
◆
The goal of having the perfect home theater experience is for it to be as close to that of going
to the movies as possible. Therefore, when films are converted to DVD or other video sources,
the color temperature standard they use for their equipment is D6500K, but in transition to
DVD, this temperature can be lost. With the press of a button, JVC’s exclusive D6500K
TheaterPro technology does just that. With the press of a button, the TheaterPro calibrating
circuit brings that original warm look and feel back to any video source.
◆
They let you make the most of your widescreen display by offering Twin Mode, Index and
Freeze.
◆
Twin mode lets you view two programs (one TV, one video) in same size windows side-by-side

◆
Index lets you search what’s on by scanning the programs consecutively in 12 separate windows. The Select button on the remote control brings you to that channel
◆
Freeze creates a snapshot of the screen in separate window when you press the Freeze button
– Advanced Hyper Bass (AHB) dynamically
enhances bass response
– BBE High Definition Audio makes audio
sound natural and clear by compensating for
the inevitable phase and amplitude
distortions that prevent sound from being its
purest in regular TV sound.

HD-ILA Rear Projection TVs
The most amazing picture imaginable is what you will see with JVC’s HD-ILA
rear projection TVs. Built on JVC’s 3-chip D-ILA technology, a revolutionary
Micro-display technology that will give you the most incredible picture
imaginable, D-ILA takes every factor from resolution, brightness, color
reproduction, cabinet styling and even device longevity one step further
than all the others.
Microdisplays like LCDs and DLP offer all the advantages of CRT
based rear projection TVs, plus add a whole lot more. Advantages
include significantly higher resolution capabilities and much brighter
images; no periodic re-convergence requirements—making them
low-maintenance; and they offer increased viewing angles and
much slimmer and light weight cabinet designs. Now HD-ILA resets
the bar, redefining microdisplay with new standards for quality,
product longevity and brightness and resolution capabilities.
Same features as the LCD 776 Series HDTVs (previous page)—
except for the difference in display technology
What makes microdisplay devices unique from
other forms of rear projection TVs (RPTVs) is
that they are driven by digital microchips and
light projection technology and CRT technology. The most common forms of microdisplay
devices are Liquid Crystal Display devices
(LCDs), Digital Micro-mirror devices (DLP), and
Liquid Crystal on Silicon devices (LCOS).
D-ILA (Direct-drive Image Light Amplifier)
devices are a highly sophisticated form of
LCOS that offer distinct advantages over the
other types. D-ILA combines the use of a single
high power user-replaceable lamp, three vertically oriented LCOS microchips (1280 x 720),
one for each RGB color, a precision focus lens,
and a truly unique polarized beam splitter to
combine all the colors of the images.
D-ILA is resistant to screen burn-in issues that
can occur from video game play and other
static images. Other panel display types, CRT
TVs and RPTVs are all prone to screen burn-in
damage which is permanent and can ruin your
TV viewing experience.
D-ILA microchips add an inorganic alignment
layer that maximizes chip production and stabilizes device performance. This unique structure insures a longer life device and maximum
performance every step of the way. The result
is television images consistently superior in
resolution, grayscaling, brightness, and color
reproduction that doesn’t diminish over time.

There are three primary technologies that lead the microdisplay revolution —LCD devices, DMD
devices, and LCOS devices. But D-ILA has two distinct advantages over the other microdisplay
technologies, both stemming from its superior device design. D-ILA is the only device type that
can boast maximum mega pixel placement capacity and no loss of light during the image
production process. LCD and DMD, and even other forms of LCOS, invariably lose some space on
which mega pixels can be placed and some of the original light source will be blocked—both of
these limitations are a consequence of their design.
LCD — fair brightness capability
LCD is a transmissive technology that allows light to pass through liquid crystal microchips to
provide image data to the display screen. The main drawback of LCD is that transistors are
required on each pixel, and wires must run between each pixel to transmit the image data.
Combined, these wires and transistors limit both the total area through which light can pass
(limiting brightness)as well as the total area on which pixels can be placed (limiting the
megapixel ratio).
DLP — reduced brightness capability
Digital Micro-mirror Devices known as DLP employ a reflective technology that uses micro-mirrors on hinges to reflect image data to the display screen. The main drawback of DMD is that a
hinge is required on, and a space is required between each pixel to allow the mirrors to move.
This space between the pixels and the space occupied by the hinges both limit the total
reflective space available per pixel (limiting brightness)as well as the total area on which pixels
can be placed (limiting the megapixel ratio).
D-ILA — best available brightness capability
HD-ILA employs D-ILA, also a reflective technology, but it utilizes a special form of LCOS pixels
which require virtually no space between them. No space between pixels allows D-ILA to yield
the highest aperture ratio (reflective area) and therefore the greatest total area for placing
mega pixels is maximized. D-ILA further improves upon LCOS by using vertically oriented
pixels and by adding an inorganic alignment layer that both stabilizes device performance and
maximizes chip production.

The D-ILA Advantage—Custom Features and Superior Technology
◆ The high power
lamp that provides the HD-ILA televisions with their exceptionally bright
images boasts a long life span. But, more importantly, unlike other microdisplay types,they
are user-replaceable. There is no need for a service technician. When it’s time to replace the
lamp, the turn of a finger screw or two (depending on which model) reveals the lamp
housing and the old lamp can be pulled out and replaced with the new one.
◆
◆
◆
◆
The unique custom designed lens assembly developed especially for D-ILA devices consists
of 13 separate glass components and an aspheric resin coated lens that insures full-time
precision focus and low distortion no matter how demanding the scene. A total of 32 layers
of anti-reflective coatings on each element minimizes internal reflections and allows for
crystal-clear pictures and natural image reproduction.
After the light is reflected off each color microchip, it is directed to pass through the
polarized beam splitter which can only be described as an amazing combination of custom
designed prisms that work in unison to recreate all the colors of the rainbow. Since the
colors are all combined simultaneously, the polarized beam splitter minimizes any potential
loss of contrast and is able to maintain image uniformity.

Because JVC employs D-ILA 3-chip LCOS technology, the image on an HD-ILA will never
show a rainbow effect that results from using single chip color wheel technology. Color
wheels create images by sending sequential pulses of light that are combined by your eyes
and your brain. Usually the process happens so fast you don’t notice it. The downside is,
if you do notice this, it appears as a flashing rainbow in front of you and you may find it
bothersome. By utilizing three chips to simultaneously reflect the light and the polarized
beam splitter to combine the colors, your eyes and brain can rest and enjoy.
Panorama, Cinema, Full & Regular Aspect Modes
“Screen door effect” is an inevitable consequence of display technologies that require a
space between pixels for moving parts or transistor wires. The effect of having these spaces
appear as though you are viewing the images through a screen door, hence the name. Since
D-ILA requires virtually no space between pixels, images always appear seamless.

19-, 23- 26- and 32˝ Widescreen 16:9 LCD HDTVs
When space is limited and flat-panel performance is a must, look no further
than Panasonic’s line of LCD HDTVs. They offer exceptional craftsmanship
and graceful design, as well as brilliant, high resolution picture quality and
impressive stereo sound. The four sleek models, the TC-19LX50 (19”),
TC-23LX50 (23˝), TC-26LX50 (26˝) and TC-32LX50 (32”) feature widescreen
16:9 aspect ratio and HDTV display capability at 1080i and 720p, so
high-definition content from any network may viewed in maximum
resolution — from sports to movies to nature specials and more.
The 26- and 32” models feature a powerful integrated 4-speaker sound
system with Surround Sound, while all models are equipped with an HDMI
interface for transfer of high-definition content via a single cable. They
incorporate a 3D Y/C digital comb filter, Progressive Scan, and offer an impressive
14-millisecond moving picture response speed, so sports or action movies are displayed with great clarity. LCD AI
technology helps ensure an exceptional dynamic range from deep blacks to bright whites. They also offer multiple inputs
including component, composite and S-Video, and a host of conveniences like V-Chip Parental Lock Out, Video Picture
Memory, Video Input Labeling, sleep timer and headphone jack. They include a pedestal sound and remote control.

◆
With a width-to-height ratio similar to movie
theater screens, these widescreen LCD TVs
provide a true theater-like experience at
home. View HDTV broadcasts and DVDs the
way they were meant to be seen.
◆
HDTV broadcasts (720p or 1080i) and DVDs
(480p) offer more detail and better color
than analog broadcasts, and it takes a highresolution display to deliver all that picture
information. The high pixel count of these
TVs provide fine detail for outstanding HDTV
reproduction. More pixels also translate into
less stair-stepping artifacts; curved and
diagonal edges look smooth and natural.
◆
Analog TVs display video in an interlaced
format, resulting in visible scan lines and
other image artifacts. They feature a progressive scan display that shows each film
frame as one solid frame, helping to create a
stable, solid image free of interlaced artifacts.
◆
Some LCD displays require the viewer to sit
within a very small sweet spot for good
image quality. Move too far to the left or
right and image quality drops off sharply.
These LCD models feature an extremely
wide viewing angle of 170°, so whether
you’re right in front or sitting off to the side,
you’ll still get great image quality.
◆
Movies are converted to interlaced signals at
30 fps. These LCD TVs detect this conversion
and use still-image processing to achieve
smooth-flowing images with a level of detail
that closely approaches the original film.
◆
LCD AI technology uses a control method
that achieves deeper, more lifelike images in
scenes where previous AI systems fell short.
The result is greater detail, depth and realism.
◆
Fast pixel response time is essential to
accurate image reproduction on LCD
displays. If is too long, fast motion seen
during sports broadcasts and action movies
can cause blurring. They feature an
impressive 14ms response speed to ensure
excellent detail and smooth motion during
high-speed scene transitions.
◆
Even with a moderately complicated home
theater setup, you probably have a pile of
tangled cables on the floor behind it. Now
you can replace all those cables with a
single cable that carries both digital video
and audio at the same time. Equipped
with an HDMI connector, you can run
high-quality digital video and audio to the
TVs via a single thin cable.
TC-20LA5 20˝ 4:3 LCD TV
For those on a budget but still desire a sleek LCD TV,
Panasonic offers a 20” 4:3 aspect ratio TV. It offers all
the features of the above TVs except it only provides
EDTV (Enhanced Definition TV) picture resolution.
This means it can display a 480p signal from a
progressive scan DVD player—but not true 720p or
1080i HDTV signals.

37- 42- and 50˝ Plasma HDTVs
To realize the true HD dream, Panasonic’s plasma line builds
on their superior quality with technologies such as sub-pixel
control, which individually addresses the red, green and blue
charges within one pixel, resulting in a 30% increase in
horizontal resolution over previous models. The new panels
are capable of reproducing a maximum of 8.6 billion colors,
with thousands of gradations within the red, green and blue
spectra, and a3000:1 contrast ratio to render an incredibly
vivid picture with enhanced detail in dark scenes. Further
advancements have been made in optimizing color purity
with 3D color processing, and in ensuring outstanding
picture quality in a wide range of ambient lighting conditions.
For the audio side of things, you’d never guess that these incredibly
slim, elegant and gorgeous TVs include an integrated 2-speaker system with surround sound.
F E AT U R E S
Superior Technology for a Superior Picture
◆ Conventional plasma displays tend to
illuminate blacks, which lowers the contrast.
Panasonic's improved Real Black Drive
System helps to enhance image clarity and
realism. By reducing the pre-discharge
emission when reproducing black, the new
Real Black Drive System provides deep, rich
blacks and a stunning contrast ratio.
◆ Plasma displays can suffer from an artifact
called “false contouring”, where transitions
between different shades of the same color
are too sharp. These transitions appear as
distinct lines between the different shades
of color. Having thousands of shades of
gradation minimizes the false contouring
artifact so color transitions take on a
smooth, natural appearance.
◆ The appearance of an object, as perceived
by the human eye, is influenced by the
colors of the objects surrounding it. This is
known as the Mach Band Effect. Panasonic
plasma TVs feature an Mach Band Effect
enhancer, which utilizes the principals of
this theory to enhance the brightness of
objects on the screen, helping improve
sharpness and a vivid picture.
PHOTO - VIDEO - PRO AUDIO
◆ The realism of a TV's image is strongly linked
to its contrast ratio, and these plasma TVs
feature a high contrast ratio of up to 3000:1.
Such a wide range from black to white
means great depth and dimensionality with
vibrant colors—and these plasma TVs can
display an incredible 8.58 billion colors for a
superior picture. Deep blacks provide excellent shadow detail during dark scenes, while
brilliant whites allow the plasmas to render
bright scenes with vivid realism.
◆
View widescreen broadcasts and widescreen
DVDs the way they were meant to be
seen.They feature a width-to-height ratio
similar to movie theater screens, providing
cinema-style entertainment at home. Also
enables full-screen viewing of high-definition
broadcasts and DVDs in 16:9 format.
◆
They achieve exceptionally faithful movie
reproduction through sophisticated analogto-digital conversion. Progressive Cinema
Scan circuitry converts 480i video to 480p
while restoring the original frames of films
for a more authentic movie reproduction.
◆
Even with a moderately complicated home
theater setup, you probably have a pile of
tangled cables on the floor. Replace them
with a single HDMI cable that carries digital
video and audio at the same time. HDMI is
an uncompressed digital video and audio
interface that supports multi-channel digital
audio transmissions and component color
spacing for true rendering of HD video.
HDMI supports the HDCP copy protection
standard, allowing transmission of copyprotected digital content to your display.
◆ Anti-Reflection screen coating helps
minimize screen reflections so ambient light
in the room doesn’t interfere with your
enjoyment of the image.
◆ Gamma Enhancement system adds subtle
nuance to dark scenes and gives images
greater depth by increasing the number of
gradation shades at low brightness levels.
It employs non-linear signal processing to
reproduce images that help accommodate
the high sensitivity of the human eye.
Additionally, they feature the Panasonic
Plasma AI function, which analyzes scenes
and automatically adjusts peak brightness
according to the brightness of the images.

DLP (Digital Light Processing) Technology—High Contrast, Sharp Details
These advanced models combine Texas Instrument’s DLP technology with Panasonic’s digital video expertise for a picture that is just breathtaking.
At the heart of DLP technology-based rear projection TV is the DMD, a 0.7-inch optical subconductor chip with over 1.5 million hinged, microscopic mirrors, which operate as optical switches to create a high resolution, full color image. Electrostatic torque is used to adjust the angles of
the mirrors, which reflect picture information to help achieve an exceptionally high 1280 x 720 pixel resolution.
The DLP optical system produces a bright, high-resolution, high contrast image in a display that is lighter and thinner than conventional CRTbased projection TVs. They also incorporate an 8-segment color-wheel, which helps minimize artifacts to ensure a brilliant picture. The DLP subsystem's Digital Light Processing technology maximizes the benefits of Panasonic’s state-of-the-art digital image technologies, such as pixel conversion. Panasonic combined these and other original optical technologies, such as a wide-angled diffusion screen panel and a short-focus lens,
with the Digital Micromirror Device™ semiconductor to achieve breathtaking results. Since there is no black area between pixels there is no
"screen door" or "honeycomb" effect, which causes visible grid lines on some LCD projector.

HD Plasma Televisions
The PDP-4360HD (43˝) and PDP-5060HD (50˝) take a
leap forward in picture quality with enhanced black
level detail and brilliant image quality to deliver
amazingly sharp, bright, accurate picture quality
that lets sports fans, gamers and movie buffs
experience the best of what HDTV programming is
meant to deliver. A newly designed Crystal Emissive
Layer combines with Pioneer’s PureDrive II circuitry to
deliver improved contrast ratios that create the best black levels ever seen in a Pioneer plasma television. Every time you
turn them on, they will make you say “WOW.” Whether it’s your favorite DVD movie, a concert in high-definition, or the
5:00 news, this plasma is going to continually surprise you with its incredible picture. They are that good.

◆ Everybody wants you to see ALL the details in a movie, even in the darkest scenes. So, Pioneer
Advanced Connectivity
◆
They are comprised of the ultra-slim panel
itself and a separate media receiver, which
are connected with just one digital interface
cable. The media receiver offers full
connectivity to your audio/video source
components and computer, and provides
some important convenience features as
well. Plus, it can be stored in a cabinet for a
clean, uncluttered look in your TV room.
◆
The media receiver is equipped with dual
NTSC (standard TV) tuners and one ATSC
(high-definition TV) tuner, for receiving
over-the-air broadcasts. (Why two NTSC
tuners? So you can watch two standard-TV
programs at once, using Picture in Picture.)
◆
Cable TV subscribers can utilize a
CableCARD to receive NTSC and ATSC
broadcasts instead of using a traditional
cable set-top box – just insert the
CableCARD from your cable company into
the slot provided on the media receiver.
◆
The media receiver also provides the TV
Guide On Screen Interactive Program Guide,
to help you find your favorite shows. It even
lets you program what you want to watch
for the coming eight days — a really handy
feature that’s included at no cost to you.
inserted a Crystal Emissive Layer between the plasma glass and the individual light cells. This is a
big advance in plasma technology, allowing each cell to be charged and discharged three times
faster than before, for greater light emission. So, blacks are blacker, yet the lighter areas on the
screen still maintain their true brightness values and don’t turn muddy or gray.
◆
To reproduce the most brilliant lifelike colors, Pioneer uses a First Surface Pure Color Filter. This
filter is bonded directly to the plasma glass instead of adding an additional layer of glass,
thereby reducing environmental waste while enhancing the image quality. Since there are
fewer layers of glass, there is less refraction of light to distort the images; however, there may be
a slight increase in audio noise from the plasma.
◆
Advanced Continuous Emission IV detects the type of content shown on the screen and
dynamically adjusts the grayscale to create optimum viewing qualities creating great detail
within black areas. To ensure a faithful and accurate presentation of film content, Pioneer
created Advanced PureCinema II also known as 3:3 pulldown.
3:3 Pulldown: If you love movies, read on
The PDP-4360HD and PDP-5060HD provide a movie experience that’s closer to actual film
than with any other plasma TV. Whether you’re watching a DVD or even regular TV, you’ll
see the difference. Here’s how, and why it matters: Movies are shot on film at 24 frames per
second (fps), but TVs display images using the NTSC standard of 30 frames per second. So
most TVs employ a conversion process called 3-2 frame pulldown. It greatly improves
reproduction of film-based material, but it often results in uneven motion (called “judder”),
especially during fast action. Pioneer solves this with a custom IC that creates 3 full copies
of each frame x 24 frames per second, for 72 progressive fps (72Hz). This is now 3-3 pulldown,
which synchronizes perfectly with the frame rate of film. It’s a great solution because it
actually makes things simpler: there’s no need for a memory buffer and there’s no guesswork.
Film-based material will match the smooth, natural reproduction you’d see in a theater.

Widescreen HDTV with DLP
Technology
If you’re looking for a big-screen, high-performance HDTV for any
presentation including office, meeting room, hotel or museum, look
no further than DLP TV by Samsung. These Cinema Smooth 720p
models are available in 42 to 61” wide screen. Elegantly framed in
an ultra-light, thin-bezel cabinet, these beautiful and lightweight
high definition TVs deliver a more lifelike picture
combined with slim design to fit where others won’t. For example,
the 61” set is less than 17” deep and weighs just 95 lbs.
Experience film-like video images with deeper blacks and more
robust colors. Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) picture
enhancement technology ensures a bright, crisp image from every
source. Equipped with a host of digital interfaces and video inputs
(connections for DVD, DTV, PC, HDTV and are digital cable ready),
connectivity challenges and future proofing are a non-issue. Mount
them, rest them on a stand or move them anywhere ,anytime, their size and weight offers more placement possibilities over
any other TV design. There’s also no risk of burn-in or screen aging, so you can be sure of years of worry-free enjoyment.
F E AT U R E S
◆ Cinema Smooth Gen 3 HD light engine uses
Texas Instruments’ .55˝ microdisplay to offer
higher throughput, a near 100% reflective
surface and switching speeds 1,000 times faster
than competing micro-display technology.
Combined with Samsung’s spec of optics, video
processing and choice of color filter system
refinements, the result is a stunningly clear
picture with outstanding color, 1500:1 contrast
ratio and smooth handling of action video.
◆ DLP Projection System DLP (Digital Light
Processing) technology by Texas Instruments
is the only display solution that enables
projection systems to create a purely digital
connection between a digital video or
graphic source and the screen in front of
you. While all other technologies are analog
and compromise some image quality in
translation, DLP projection unleashes the full
potential of high quality video content.
DLP Technology: The secret to these engineering marvels is a compact digital projector powered by EMMY award-winning technology by Texas Instruments. A single, postage
stamp-sized Digital Micro-Mirror Device (DMD) that generates high definition video images is
combined with Samsung’s proprietary Cinema Smooth Gen 5 HD light engine and advanced
light processing optics results in an overall stunning picture quality that is clear, bright and
with outstanding contrast. Samsung’s high definition televisions based on DLP technology
deliver a stunning picture quality that rivals any other display technology available today.
And unlike other display technologies that deteriorate with ongoing use— such as cathode
ray tubes (CRT), plasma, liquid crystal display systems (LCD, LCoS, HTPS)— the DLP panel isn’t
susceptible to the damaging effects of heat, humidity, vibration, and aging. Projection systems using DLP technology enable you to see the creator’s original vision at full impact again
and again, no matter how many times a video or graphic has been projected.

AQUOS LCD TVs
AQUOS LCD TVs capture attention with incredible image quality, uniquely sculpted style and contemporary design.
AQUOS not only changes the way you’ll look at television, but also the way television looks. These award-winning
TVs offer an elegant alternative to traditional CRTs, and make dramatic statements about your lifestyle. Whichever
model you choose, AQUOS TVs redefine what’s possible in home entertainment.
A WHOLE NEW PERSPECTIVE ON TELEVISION
EARTH-FRIENDLY DESIGN
From the sleek contemporary design, to the startling clarity of the LCD
panel, AQUOS will enhance every aspect of your television experience.
13˝, 15˝ and 20˝ sizes allow you to bring amazing television into every
corner of your home. Plus all AQUOS offer component video, S-Video,
composite video and RF inputs. And that’s just the beginning.
Thanks to their compact size, AQUOS TVs require fewer parts
and less packaging than conventional CRT televisions. The main
unit employs non-halogen materials and lead-free solder, while
the base stand is made of 30% recycled materials. The entire unit
disassembles easily and uses unified grades of non-combustible
materials for easier recycling. Sharp has eliminated the use of
polystyrene packaging and molded parts that contain vinyl
chloride, further reducing the burden on the environment.
LONG-LIFE BACKLIGHT SYSTEM
A redesigned backlight system minimizes light loss, providing a long
lamp life of about 60,000 hours (when used continuously in a room
at 25°C and in standard lighting conditions and brightness). AQUOS
Liquid Crystal Televisions also feature an Auto-Save function that
automatically adjusts the brightness of the backlight to match ambient
light conditions, contributing to further energy savings.
LOW POWER CONSUMPTION
AQUOS TVs consume 30 to 50% less than comparably sized CRT
televisions, which not only makes them more economical, but
also contributes to the reduction of global CO2 emissions.

Advantage
All AQUOS LC-TVs
have wide 170° horizontal
and vertical viewing angles.
Typical plasma TV viewing angles are 160°
LC-TV. Wide TV
viewing angles allow greater
viewing locations and TV placement.
AQUOS LC-TVs come in a variety of sizes:
13˝, 15˝, 20˝, 22˝, 26˝, 30˝, 32˝, 37˝ & 45˝.
Plasma displays are not produced
smaller than 32˝.
LC-TV. AQUOS LC-TVs offer screen sizes to fit
nearly every room and budget.
No image burn-in.
The following inputs are not recommended:
Computer Input; Video Game input
Also, video broadcasts with logos at the bottom, or a station
identifying logo “watermark” can cause burn-in of static images
LC-TV. AQUOS LC-TVs offer
the most versatile input options.
All AQUOS LC-TVs have a
brightness rating of 430 cd/m2.
Plasma TVs are measured based on a different standard than
LCD panels. When compared under the same circumstances
as LC-TV, plasma display brightness is typically about 100 cd/m2.
LC-TV. Brightness is important
to help ensure optimal viewing
under varied daily lighting conditions.
LCD panels are lighter and more
manageable. Most customers
can easily mount an LCD panel.
In addition, all AQUOS models
come with a built-in table stand.
Plasma TVs are about an inch deeper and are
fairly heavy, and may need additional wall support
or professional installation.
LC-TV. AQUOS LC-TVs easily mount and move.
In addition, they also offer versatile installations
with use of mounting brackets and
articulating arms. The heavier more fragile
Plasma TVs can be a challenge to move
and have limited installation options.
AQUOS LC-TVs have a
life-span of 60,000 hours.
Typical plasma displays have a life-span of
20,000 to 30,000 hours and once the brightness level decreases,
there is no recovery, so the TV must be replaced.
LC-TV.
Make your investment last longer.
LCD panels consume about
half the power of plasma displays.
Plasma displays require more power
to light each cell individually.
LC-TV.
Save energy costs and the environment.
No altitude limitations.
When Plasma TVs are placed in homes at elevations above
6,500 feet, they will often emit an annoying buzzing noise.
This is due to the fact that the plasma gas inside the
TV is subject to air pressure, and the higher the altitude,
the more the TV will be prone to buzzing.
LC-TV.
AQUOS LC-TV will perform consistently
regardless of altitude.

FD Trinitron WEGA (VAY-guh) Televisions
Twenty five years ago, Sony introduced to the world a better way to
watch television. The outstanding brightness, sharpness and color purity
of Sony's Trinitron system quickly became the standard which all televisions are measured against. And in 1973, the Trinitron system won perhaps the ultimate accolade. It became the only color TV system ever to
win a technical achievement Emmy Award for picture quality. It's fair to
say that the Trinitron tube, more than anything else, cemented Sony's reputation for high quality. Today, video production and TV broadcasting
studios use Sony Trinitron monitors to evaluate their work. Executives use
Trinitron monitors to show off computer spreadsheets. Micro-surgeons
monitor their work on Trinitron sets. And Trinitron color radar CRTs guide
passenger airline pilots past thunderstorms. In fact, any application where
color, brightness, resolution and accuracy are absolute requirements.
But the dawn of the digital era imposed new demands on televisions systems. This drove Sony engineers to develop a
new system, with even greater levels of performance. The result? FD Trinitron WEGA television. A revolutionary CRT
technology, “FD” or Flat Display has redefined the way we watch TV.
Compared to Sony’s previous best TV, the FD system is eleven times flatter.
This translates into superb resolution, outstanding contrast,uncompromising accuracy, and corner-to-corner detail that will thrill you.
By incorporating Sony’s proprietary FD Trinitron picture tube, FD Trinitron
WEGA TV creates a vertically and horizontally flat screen.
This results in minimal glare and virtually no distortion. The fine pitch
aperture grille produces strong detail and high resolution. A larger
deflection yoke and longer electron gun than found in the original
Trinitron technology have been incorporated for precise corner-to-corner
focusing and better data and text reproduction.
T H E T E C H N O LO G Y:
Flat Glass Panel uses advanced glass technology for the structural rigidity a flat screen
requires. The industry’s first flat CRT, the Flat Glass Panel delivers accurate picture reproduction with a dramatic reduction in glare and image distortion. This design allows also results
in wide viewing angles allowing flexible room placement.
High Focus
Electron
Gun
The Flat Glass Panel is matched by a flat Fine Pitch Aperture Grille which delivers outstanding detail and clarity by decreasing the “pitch” or distance between the high tension wires
The grille also helps to support the picture tube structure.
Flat-screen CRTs demand incredible depth-of-focus. To accomplish this, Sony increased the
internal focal length of the electron gun by 30%. This improves corner-to-corner focus by
20% without making the overall gun larger.
Sony redesigned the deflection yoke so each electron maintain its shape for accurate
image reproduction. The High Precision Deflection Yoke (DY) is 30% larger than a conventional Trinitron DY, so whether you’re watching broadcast television, surfing the Internet
(with an optional WebTV terminal) or enjoying Digital Satellite System programming, the
picture is precise from top to bottom, side to side and corner to corner.

Flat Picture Benefits
Picture Detail
Unlike curved screens which distort the
shapes of objects in the TV picture, the
FD Trinitron flat screen renders everything accurately. For the first time in a big
CRT, squares are truly square. Circles
appear circular. And all straight lines are
actually straight, including vertical,
horizontal and diagonal. Since the
geometry of all on-screen objects is
correct, everything appears more real,
more convincing, more lifelike.
Wide Viewing Angle
FD Trinitron provides a wide viewing
angle because there is no screen bulge to
obscure part of the picture. To really
appreciate the FD Trinitron difference,
walk toward the side of a conventional TV
and notice how the screen bulge tends
to block part of the picture. You can view
the FD Trinitron television through
almost a full 180° angle - without losing
any picture information.
Pinpoint
Corner-to-Corner Focusing
The FD Trinitron delivers outstanding
image detail not only at the screen center, but also in the corners. Sony's HighFocus Electron Gun and High-Precision
Deflection Yoke make it possible.
Minimum Glare
The FD Trinitron picture tube is visually
flat. Unlike curved screens which reflect
more sources of room light - washing the
picture out, the flat screen minimizes the
reflection of room lights, especially from
the ceiling and sides. Beyond suppressing
reflections to the bare minimum, it also
maximizes contrast, for a deeper, richer,
more convincing picture.
The KV-13FS100 adds style to the
smallest spaces. Features include a
3-Line Digital Comb Filter, Dynamic
Picture, Stereo Sound (3-watt x2) with
side speaker design, and a component
video input. Also offers a host of
conveniences including Auto Channel
Program, Speed Surf channel selection,
Caption Vision (CC), Channel Fix,
Channel Skip/Add, Video Label,
V-Chip parental control, two-event
clock/timer, , on-screen display in English, Spanish or French, and a sleep timer.

reflective surface and then again on the way
out. The natural light refraction that occurs
causes “ghosting” that results in decreased
picture sharpness. First Surface Mirrors
eliminate this unnecessary refraction,
avoiding image degradation.

Toshiba 720p sets utilize a TALEN Light
Engine. Toshiba 1080p sets use the new
TALEN X light engine with Xtreme
BLAC, incorporating advanced design
and technology. As 720p is HD, Toshiba
calls their 1080p models “XHD - 2X
resolution”, as they have over twice the
pixel count of 720. Both the new TALEN
and TALEN X light engines are enhanced
with DEEP Picture (Digitally Enhanced
Engine Performance) technology
creating sharper more vibrant images.
The 720p TALEN engine with DEEP Picture creates spectacular picture quality.
