Key Features
Overview
Your TV is equipped with features that will add to your TV viewing experience. The f_}llowingsection
highhghts some of your TV's most unique features. Go to Chapter 3 for more detai_s on these and
addkional features.
Resolution
(it's math...that
works
for you)
The crisp, _iGlikepicture that peopD raveabout when experiencingtrue HDTV is due to the resolution this
technoh)5_, provides. The resoh_fion is measured by [email protected]_g the number of active lines of pixds. A pixd
(which stands f{)rpicture demen0 is a small dot. The picture you see on your TV is composed of these dots.
A reguhr, analog teDvision only has a resoh(flon of about 200,000 pixds (480 vcrtical pixds x 440
horizontal pixds = 21 !,200 pixds). The HDTV format is capable of more than 2 million pixds (1,920 x
1,080 = 2,073,600).
More pixds equal more detail. In summary, HDTV is capable of resolution that is up to 10 ti*_lesthe
resolution of the picture on a regular, anah)g TV!

Aspect
Ratio
Aspect ratio i5 sin]ply the width and height o_ the picture. Regular TX's
use a 4:3 aspect ratio, which means the picture is a little wider than it is
tall (a screen that is 20 inches wide is about 15 inches tall).
When the standards were being developed tier television broadcasting
in 1941 by the NTSC (the National Television Standards Committee), it
made sense to adopt the 4:3 aspect ratio that the film industry was
using at that time.
16:9 Aspect Ratio
As TV5 dropped in price and people pro:spered in the 1950s, the movie
industry had to find a way to get people ()tit (£ their livi_-,grooms and
back to lhe movie theatres. That's when they created/he
1(5:9 aspect
ratio (atso called wi(tescreen _ormat). When the standards tor HDTV
were being developed by the ATSC (Advanced T(qevision Standards
Conrmittee), the 1(5:9 aspect ratio was chosen as the _ormat tor HDTV.
This wi(tescteen format makes sense because it's much closer to the
way \re see. Our fiekt ot vision is actually much wider than tall
because ot our peripheral vision. Not only is it closer to the way we
see, but the pictures are crisper and cleaner with more detail in the
close-up and panoramic views.

QAM
RCA was the first to o['fcr an integrated tufter with its H[)TVs (which means there is no l'teecl lC_)ranother
box to receive digital programming).
Now, we've gone one better-- your HDTV's tuner is digital cable
ready (no need for a cable box to view unscrambled digital cable programming).
The CableCARD TM slot on
your HDTV allows you to use a digital cable card to access digital cable. The tuner is able to decode all 16
formats of digital tdevision broadcasts, and it can interpret unscrambled digital cable signals because it
includes QAM (Quadrature
Amplitude
Modulation).
