Product highlights
LCD WXGA display, 1366 x 768p
This WXGA display with state-of-the-art LCD screen
technology gives you widescreen HD resolution of 1366 x
768p pixels. It produces brilliant flicker-free progressive
scan pictures with optimum brightness and superb colors.
This vibrant and sharp image will provide you with an
enhanced viewing experience.
Digital Cable Ready
The CableCARD is a removable card distributed by the
cable providers that is inserted in the TV. This enables the
“Plug-and-Play DTV” functionality as agreed between cable
operators and consumer electronics manufacturers. It
allows the decoding of encrypted or scrambled content
delivered from the cable system. CableCARD functionality
includes conditional access and copy protection. A
CableCARD-enabled television without a CableCARD
inserted receives high-definition standard TV broadcasts.
When a CableCARD is inserted, the television receives
high-value high-definition, cable programming.
Pixel Plus 2 HD
Pixel Plus 2 HD offers the unique combination of ultimate
sharpness, natural detail, increased depth, vivid colors and
smooth and natural motion from standard TV, High
Definition signals and multimedia sources. Each pixel of the
incoming picture is enhanced to better match the
surrounding pixels, resulting in a more natural picture.
Artifacts in compressed multimedia content are detected
and reduced, ensuring that the picture is clean and razor
sharp. Digital noise reduction ensures that the picture is
perfectly smooth yet razor sharp.
Active Control + Light Sensor
Active Control is a unique and intelligent way of optimizing
picture quality by measuring and analyzing the incoming
signal to automatically adjust picture quality settings. Active
Control with Light Sensor uses a sensor to adjust the picture
brightness depending on the room light conditions.
USB and Memory Card slot
Instantaneously view and share your movies, photos and
music. The Memory Card slot will accept cards of type
Compact Flash I and II, Memory Stick, SD Card / Mini SD
Card, Smart Media, Micro Drive (up to 2 GB) and Multi
Media Card. Simply plug the memory card into slot at the
side of the TV, and access the multimedia files stored on
the card. The USB connector allows access to multimedia
files of most USB-sticks and most digital cameras (USB
memory-class device).
HDMI input
HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection
from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to
an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The
non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer
picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest
output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input
is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes
digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
