Key Features Overview

Your TV is equipped with features that will add to your TV viewing experience.

The following information summarizes a few of these features.

Chapter 3 provides more information about the rest of the TV's features and how to use them.

Hi-Pix Picture Enhancement System

The Hi-Pix Picture Enhancement System incorporates two of RCA's rrlost advanced technologies: "lYuScan Digital Reality and the AVR Picture Projection System. The result is the ultimate in true-to-life picture performance that provides the optimum picture resolution from each digital source connected to your TV (terrestrial, DVD, satellite, and/or cable).

TruScan Digital Reality

Picture performance starts with signal processing.

TruScan Digital Reality intelligent signal processing recognizes incoming video signals and progressively converts lhem to achieve optimum digital picture performance.

It enhances die picture quality and makes you feel as if you're close to the real thing. It also recognizes when original fihn sources have been modified and automatically converts the analog frame rate back to its original format to bring out the detail - a process commonly ret_:rred to as reverse 3:2 pulldown.

AVR Picture Projection System

The Accurate Visual Reality high definition picture proiection sys_m o_rs a brighter picture _en conventional CRTs

(cathode ray tubes). These tubes creates brilliant, lifelike fidelity. The AVR 4 lens system is designed to complement the

CR'IIs providing accurate color,s and razor sharp focus everywhere on the screen.

DVI-HDTV Input

Lets you connect a component with a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) output.

DVI provides an uncompressed, digital video interlace developed for high-bandwidth digital connection.

It supports the overlay of high-resolution graphics needed by some electronic program guide navigation and other interactive services.

DVI, when combined with HDCP (High bandwidth

Digital Content Protection) technology, creates a protected digital connection.

The DVI-HDTV connection is designed to display either progressive scan (480p) or HDTV (1080i) signals at a bandwidth of up to 1.78 Gigabits per second.

PIP (Picture-In-Picture) and POP (Picture-Outside-Picture)

Description: PIP lets you watch two channels at one time - one channel on tile main screen and tile other in a smaller window.

POP also lets you watch two channels at one time - one channel on the left side of the screen (the main picture) and file other on the right.

Requirements: Press file PIP button to bring up tile PIP window.

Press again to bring up POP. Chapter 3 has detailed instructions on how to use the t I1 and PO1 features.

Note: PIP and POP are not available for DVI or component video sources (CMPI or CMP2).

V-Chip: Parental Controls (for the U.S. and Canada)

Description: You can block programs and movies by content, age-based ratings, and/or movie ratings.

Requirements:

• Set up file Parental Control menu in file TV's main menu (Chapter 3 has details).

• The broadcasters must use the rating system when they send the program to your TV in order for your TV to block the program.

• Parenval controls must be locked for these settings to take affect.

Change channel orpress OK to enterpassword and temporaril 3 deactivale the Parental Control.

Broadcasters are not required to provide content themes, so programs received with no content themes will only be blocked if you block their age-based rating.

You can also Mock out programs that have been given an Exempt rating, and programs that are considered unrated.
