Cinespeed LCD Panel: This special LCD panel is rated for an
eight-millisecond or less response time, which delivers better high-speed video.
Edge LED Backlight: The Toshiba SL412U TV utilizes LED edge-backlighting
for a clear, crisper image with better contrast and color. You will experience a
superior picture and higher contrast ratio with Edge LED backlight technology,
producing brighter whites and deeper blacks than traditional CCFL backlight LCD
televisions. Edge LED Backlight technology, also allows televisions to be
slimmer, brighter, and more energy efficient.
DynaLight Backlight Control: DynaLight Backlighting Control
automatically adjusts the backlight intensity based on the image content. It
constantly monitors the brightness level of each video frame, even in low light
settings. As a result, you see increased detail and greater depth of images.
ClearFrame 120Hz: This advanced system virtually eliminates
motion blur without decreasing image brightness, or adding flicker. Images are
now crisp and clear regardless of image motion. ClearFrame 120Hz doubles the
video frames from 60 per second to 120 per second to reduce any motion blur that
could be caused by fast action video. ClearFrame utilizes superior Motion Vector
Frame Interpolation (MVFI) technology. Utilizing the power of the TV's video
processor, MVFI creates new frames, inserting them between the original frames.
CableClear DNR: The CableClear Digital Noise Reduction feature allows
you to reduce visible interference in the TV's picture. This may be useful
when receiving a broadcast with a weak signal (especially a Cable channel) or
playing a noisy video cassette or disc.
HDTV Tuner: The TV has
built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't
need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV
or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.
1080p Resolution: Some video content is in high-definition (HD),
but some is still in standard-definition (SD). The Toshiba LED-LCD HDTV will upconvert and enhance
480i, 480p, and even 720p content to create a sharper, more detailed picture (up
to 1080p). As a result, all of your
standard DVDs, SD TV channels, camcorder videos, and even SD video games will
look like HD. The Toshiba LED-LCD TV will display all inputs at a resolution of
1080p (1920 x 1080).
Video Inputs: The Toshiba SL412U TV provides High
Definition (HDMI/component) and Standard Definition (composite) video inputs.
- 3 HDMI Inputs: The television features three HDMI (v.1.4) inputs. The HDMI inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz),
1080i, 720p, 480p, 480i, video signals. If you want to connect a DVI-compatible device, you will
need an HDMI-to-DVI adapter cable. Since DVI does not carry audio signals, a
stereo audio 3.5mm input is provided for the HDMI 1 input (shared with PC input). In addition to the HDMI-to-DVI
adapter cable, you will also need a stereo audio 3.5mm cable.
- Component Video Input: The ColorStream HD Component
video input will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The component
video input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
Picture Size: When viewing a source, you can choose one of
the following picture sizes:
- Native: Displays the 3% to 5% of the image that is
generally lost during the normal over-scanning that is done in most TVs. If receiving a 480i (HDMI), 480p (HDMI), 720p,
1080i, or 1080p signal program, the video is scaled to display the entire
picture within the border of the screen. None of the picture will be lost.
As a result, it eliminates unnecessary scaling of Full HD signals that can
reduce overall image resolution and therefore picture quality.
- Normal: Image is displayed close to its originally
formatted proportion, with black bars along the sides or top and bottom if
the signal has an aspect ratio different than the TV.
- Full: Mainly designed for receiving a squeezed 4:3
signal (a 16:9 [480i, 480p] programs squeezed into a 4:3 transmission), the
picture is stretched wider to fill the screen, but not taller, none of the
picture is hidden.
- TheaterWide 1: The picture is non-uniformly enlarged;
the center of the picture remains close to its true. proportion, but the
left and right edges are stretched wider to fill the screen, used primarily
with a 4:3 source.
- TheaterWide 2: Entire picture is uniformly enlarged,
used primarily with a widescreen source.
- TheaterWide 3: Picture is non-uniformly enlarged; the
picture is stretched wider to fill the width of the screen and stretched
- 4:3: Provides a 4:3 aspect ratio of a 720p, 1080i or
1080p signal; sidebars fill the empty vertical spaces while not distorting
the picture from its original size.
- 4:3 Stretch: Converts 4:3 programs to fill the screen.
- Dot-by-Dot: Non-scaling display for VGA, SVGA, XGA,
WXGA and SXGA sources only.
Note: If the edges of the picture are cut off in Theater
Wide 2 or 3 mode, you can adjust the image position on the screen.
Auto Aspect Ratio: The Auto Aspect Ratio feature will
automatically select the picture size when one of the following inputs sources
is received - a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i signal from the ANT/Cable input; a 480i
signal from the Component Video input, and a 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p, or
VGA (60 Hz) signal from any of the HDMI inputs. When the auto aspect feature is
turned on and the TV receives one of the before mentioned video signal, the picture size is automatically
selected; a 4:3 signal is set to Normal, a 16:9 signal is set to Full, a 4:3
letterbox signal is set to TheaterWide 2. If the signal's aspect is not defined,
the Picture Size defaults to the last manually chosen setting.
