42PMA500EZ Features
Hitachi’s new 42PMA500EZ plasma display
incorporates a host of new technology features,
which combine to produce the ultimate in picture
performance. With 1024 x 1024 pixel resolution, 16:9
aspect ratio screen and an extra-high peak white
brightness level of 1100cd/m2, this Plasma display
provides a higher quality picture. Among other
technical advances featured are Hitachi’s I2 Advanced
Intelligent Image Chip, which enables high quality
progressive scan processing and high speed digital
processing. Capable of displaying the minute details
and crisp colours of high resolution computer
generated video images and graphics, this slim and
space saving wide-screen display is ideal for visual
communication applications.

H3 Panel - Improved
Brightness and Contrast
Designed to deliver outstanding picture quality, the
42PMA500EZ incorporates Hitachi’s new H3 Panel which
delivers dynamic contrast and improved brightness. With
a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and panel brightness of 1100
cd/m2, this display reproduces amazing quality pictures.
Refinements to the phosphors and drive system have raised
the brightness of the H3 Panel by 10%, while new optical
characteristics of the panel and front filter have improved
overall image brightness and made colour reproduction
more natural.
I2 Advanced Intelligent
Image Chip
The 42PMA500EZ features Hitachi’s new I2 Advanced
Intelligent Image Chip which enables high quality
progressive scan processing and high speed digital
processing. This ensures the best contrast level for all
signals that are run through the display panel. The Digital
colour management allows tint and black levels to be
independently controlled so that vivid and natural pictures
can be obtained without affecting other colours. With
1024p High Performance Signal Processor, this feature can
overlap the fields to create more lines resulting in clearer,
sharper picture quality, with no discernible flicker.
Life Extension Mode
The 42PMA500EZ is equipped with Life Extension Mode
that limits the maximum brightness to either 75% or 60%
and gradually changes the setting over time to keep the
picture brightness constant.

Video Upgrade Board*
The optional Video Upgrade Board provides the following
inputs to accommodate today’s wide variety of signal
sources.
These include:
• Component/Composite Video for DVD/VCR
• Component or RGB/Composite for DVD/Set Top Box
• S-Video/Composite for VCR/Camcorder
• SCART (RGB/S-Video/Composite for DVD/
Set Top Box/VCR)
Multi Picture Modes
To add to the flexibility for presentations, this new
feature, Multi Picture Modes, allows you to show a split
screen with two images. This can be a choice of Picture
and Picture or Picture in PC and is ideal for visual
communication applications. (Only available when
optional Video Board fitted).
Manual Adjustable White
Balance
This function allows you to set any desired colour
temperature to achieve the correct white balance. In
addition to four fixed modes, there is a selector/manual
mode that allows the user to precisely set each of the RGB
colours separately to produce the exact desired result.
Features for Reduced
Image Retention
The 42PMA500EZ has sophisticated screen saver features
that enable the user to shift the picture by a variable
number of pixels and time to help prevent static images
marking the screen.
If these functions are employed when high contrast
elements are displayed, image retention effects can be
substantially reduced. In addition, this model has an input
signal reverse display function and a whole-screen white
display that refreshes the screen if any temporarily
retained images are visible.
Compact and Versatile
While the 42PMA500EZ’s 42-inch screen measures
922 x 522mm, the slim and lightweight unit is only 90mm
in depth and weighs just 34.9kg (excluding the table
stand). In addition to desktop use with the optional table
stand, the display can be mounted on to a ceiling or wall
using one of a variety of optional mounting units, in
horizontal and vertical formats.
Built-in Amplifier
Equipped with built-in 12W per channel 1 bit Digital Audio
Amplifier, the 42PMA500EZ can be connected to a pair of
optional external speakers to provide a dynamic audio
accompaniment to viewing, presentations, etc.
ALIS Technology
Easy on the Environment
The 42PMA500EZ employs Hitachi’s ALIS (Alternate
Lighting of Surfaces) technology to achieve high
resolution and high brightness. ALIS employs two closely
spaced lines of phosphors for each line of a conventional
screen and emits light from each line alternately. The
result is a smoother more natural image without the
obvious black lines between pixels that conventional
panels display. Because ALIS uses different electrodes for
odd and even lines, each electrode is only on for half the
time of a conventional panel.
This reduced duty cycle significantly increases the
screen’s effective working life.
To make the 42PMA500EZ as environmentally friendly
as possible, Hitachi has reduced the number of
components contained within each Plasma, and make
effective use of natural resources wherever possible.
This has reduced the number of hazardous materials
used by utilising lead free and non halogen resin,
resulting in a more energy efficient panel.
Multi-Scanning from VGA
to UXGA
The 42PMA500EZ accepts video signals with horizontal
scanning frequencies from 31kHz to 106kHz and vertical
scanning (or frame) frequencies of between 50Hz and 85Hz.
As a result, this display is capable of producing high quality
pictures from almost any type of PC video output signal
ranging from VGA to UXGA. Three screen modes are
available to suit particular signal sources and applications.
These modes are NORMAL (no change in the aspect ratio),
FULL (enlargement/reduction of the aspect ratio to make
the image fill the 16:9 screen), and ZOOM (no change in the
aspect ratio but with vertical scrolling of the image on the
screen). On top of this, the 42PMA500EZ also has a full
complement of features that makes this display ideal for
use as a PC monitor including automatic adjustment
functions for PC signal compatibility, phase and clock
frequency.

• When a plasma display is turned on, minute dots light up on the screen. Please be aware that in some parts of the screen may not light, while in other parts
dots will always light. This is normal and is not a malfunction.
• To prevent overheating of the plasma panel an air cooling system is used. To assure proper operation of this system, the plasma display should be installed and
operated in a vertical position. If the display is installed horizontally or at an excessive angle, heat may not be effectively dissipated and overheating could
occur. This could lead to a malfunction.
