Inputs and Outputs Notes
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.
Display Resolution: The HP-S4253 has a display resolution of 1024 x
768. The unit will accept 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p signals, and has a built-in
image "scaler" to handle a variety of digital and analog audio/video sources.
The "scaler" converts the signals from all video sources to match the panel's
native 768p resolution.
FilterBright: FilterBright is a powerful
anti-reflective film that absorbs external light and transmits internal light,
thereby increasing the contrast levels and preventing unwanted reflection. In
bright daylight, FilterBright creates high contrast with pure black to show
clearer image details and generate superb dark area
High Contrast Ratio: The 10,000:1 contrast ratio delivers deep, rich
darks and bright whites.
Panel Life Expectancy: The plasma flat panel display has an estimated
life of 60,000 hours, which equates to 27 years at 6 hours of viewing per day.
Note: The estimated life figure represents phosphor "half-life" viewing
time under normal conditions.
Image Engine (DNIe): This exclusive Samsung technology dramatically improves
picture quality by enhancing the contrast, detail, and white balance, while also
reducing the noise.
13-bit Processing: Samsung's
13-bit processing method produces 549 billion lifelike colors and aids in video
signal processing of analog sources to ensure a more natural and vivid picture.
Picture Modes: You can choose one of the following picture modes:
- Standard: resets the standard factory settings
- Dynamic: for viewing the TV during the day, or when there is
bright light in the room
- Movie: for viewing the TV in low light, or when playing video
- Custom: allows you to adjust and store the following settings:
contrast, brightness, sharpness, color, tint, and color tone
Picture Sizes: You can choose
one of the following picture sizes:
sets the picture to 16:9 wide mode
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
4:3: sets the
picture to 4:3 normal mode
PC Display: The PC input allows
you to connect a personal computer with a D-Sub 15-pin output, allowing you to
use the TV as a high-resolution computer monitor. In PC mode, you can adjust the
following picture quality settings: Coarse and Fine, both of which allow you to
remove picture noise.
Picture-In-Picture (PIP): The
Picture-In-Picture feature allows you to simultaneously watch two video sources
(such as a TV, VCR, or DVD), or watch one video source while using the PC input.
The TV has only one tuner, so you cannot watch two TV channels at the same time.
There are three PIP views: two side-by-side split screens or a small window
inside of the full screen. The small PIP window can be moved to any of the
screen's four corners.
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.
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.
Reduction: If the broadcast signal received by your TV is weak, you can
activate the Digital Noise Reduction feature to help reduce any static and
ghosting that may appear on the screen.
You can choose from the following sound settings:
resets the standard factory settings
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.
Sleep Timer: The sleep timer
switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer
can be set to 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, or 180 minutes.
On/Off Timer: The On/Off timer
allows you to program the television to turn itself on and off by selecting a
specific on time and a specific off time. You can also choose the "On Timer
Channel" and "On Timer Volume."
This feature allows you to choose a level of energy savings by adjusting the
screen brightness. You can select Auto Saving, which automatically adjusts the
screen brightness depending upon the surrounding lighting conditions. Super
Saving enters the maximum power saving mode regardless of the surrounding
illumination. If you select Standard, the TV operates in the standard brightness
mode, regardless of the surrounding lighting conditions.
Protection: To reduce the possibility of screen burn-in, this TV is equipped
with a pixel shift function, which minutely moves pixels on the display
horizontally or vertically. You can set the number of vertical lines and
horizontal dots to shift, plus the time interval for each pixel shift. If screen
burn has occurred, you can select an all-white screen or a signal pattern to
help remove screen burn artifacts.
The HP-S4253 comes with a vertical stand for easy placement on top of a counter
or table. On the stand, the TV cannot be tilted or swiveled.
You can mount this display on the wall using an optional wall-mount bracket. The
TV has four threaded screw holes spaced to accommodate many universal wall mount
brackets. The horizontal hole spacing is 23-1/2", while the vertical hole
spacing is 15-11/16". The holes will accept M8 (8mm) screws.
The supplied remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of
functions on other brands of components, including VCRs, cable boxes, and DVD
