Inputs and Outputs Notes
DLP Projection System:
DLP (Digital Light Processing) technology by Texas Instruments is the only
display solution that enables projection systems to create a purely digital
connection between a digital video or graphic source and the screen in front of
you. While all other technologies are analog and compromise some image quality
in translation, DLP projection unleashes the full potential of high-quality
Cinema Smooth 1080p
Gen 6 Light Engine: Samsung's 6th generation Digital Light Processing engine
uses Texas Instruments' latest generation 0.85" microdisplay. The faster
switching speeds are double the previous generations and approximately 1000
times faster than competing microdisplay technologies. The combination of
Samsung's optics, advanced video processing and Samsung's 2.6", seven-segment
color wheel (spinning at 10,800 rpm) results in a stunningly clear picture with
outstanding color, an extended contrast ratio of up to 10,000:1 and a crisp,
bright picture that's closer to film.
HD Ultra-Fine Pitch
Screen: Samsung's HD Ultra-Fine Pitch Screen (0.155mm) further improves picture
clarity especially when viewing higher definition video sources like DVD and
HDTV. Text and fine details will also appear sharper.
Format Conversion System: The Automatic Digital Format Conversion System is
compatible with 1080i and 720p HDTV formats, as well as 480p and 480i SDTV formats.
The system will accept any DTV, Analog TV, or XGA computer RGB input. All video
signals are converted to a 16:9 widescreen (1920 x 1080) resolution) progressive
display for flicker-free images.
CableCARD Slot: This TV has a back panel CableCARD slot that allows
digital cable reception without a set-top box. CableCARDs will be available from
your local cable provider.
HDTV (ATSC) Tuner: The TV has a built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC)
tuner, so you don't have to purchase a separate digital set-top box to receive
and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV signals. The TV also has a 181-channel NTSC
Cinema Smooth Film
Mode: Samsung's 3:2 pulldown correction circuitry senses motion found in
unconverted 480i DVD video based on 24 fps film productions. This is especially
important when converting to a progressive video image, the result is an
elimination of visible motion artifacts. Note: This feature is by-passed
on 480p, 720p and 1080i inputs.
Digital Natural Image
Engine (DNIe): Samsung's DNIe makes input signals sharper, clearer, and more
lifelike. It's advanced image processors and six-times density enhancer help to
create true-to-life colors and high contrast, while virtually eliminating
digital artifacts. DNIe also includes a motion optimizer, contrast enhancer,
detail enhancer, color optimizer, and "My Color Control."
MCC (My Color Control) Mode:
The MCC Mode lets you select predefined settings that affect the skin, sky, and
grass tones in a picture without affecting other colors on the screen. You can
choose one of the following predefined settings: Standard, Red, Blue, Green,

adjust and store the following settings: contrast, brightness, sharpness,
color and tint
Color Weakness Enhancement: The
Color Weakness Enhancement feature adjusts the Red, Blue, or Green color to
enhance the picture according to the user's particular color weakness.
Digital Signal Strength Meter:
The digital signal strength meter can be used to help you find the antenna
position that delivers the highest HDTV digital signal strength.
Analog Channel Fine Tuning: The
fine tuning feature allows you to manually adjust analog channels for optimal
reception. A separate fine tuning setting may be put into the TV's memory for
each analog channel.
Low Noise Amplifier (LNA): When
the TV's antenna setting is on "Air", instead of "Cable", sometimes reception
can be improved by boosting the incoming signal using the LNA function. A
separate LNA setting may be put into the TV's memory for each channel.
Picture Sizes: You can choose
one of the following picture sizes:
16:9: sets the
picture to 16:9 wide mode
this mode for the wide aspect ratio of a panoramic picture
magnifies the size of the picture and allows you to move the enlarged
picture using the arrows on the remote
magnifies the size of the picture more than Zoom 1 and allows you to move
the enlarged picture using the arrows on the remote
sets the picture to 4:3 normal mode
Picture-in-Picture: Two tuners eliminate the need for a second video source
for picture-in-picture. You can select two analog sources or one analog and one
digital source (the digital source cannot be viewed in the PIP window). You can select standard PIP operation (with a PIP frame
size of Large or Small), or one of two split-screen modes. During standard PIP
operation, the PIP frame can be moved to any corner on the screen. In both
modes, you can alternate sound between the main program and the secondary
program. Using the Swap function, you can instantly switch the main program with
the secondary program, except when the main picture is a digital broadcast.
Auto Volume: Auto
volume automatically adjusts the volume of the desired channel by lowering the
sound output when the modulation signal is high or by raising the sound output
when the modulation signal is low.

for watching music videos and
for watching movies
for watching a show that is mostly dialogue
allows you to adjust the 5-band EQ, which includes the following
frequencies: 100 Hz, 300 Hz, 1 kHz, 3 kHz, and 10 kHz
TruSurround is a patented SRS
technology that solves the problem of playing 5.1 multichannel content over
two speakers. TruSurround delivers a compelling, virtual surround sound
experience through the two speaker internal playback system. It is fully
compatible with all multi-channel formats.
