Stand and Wall-Mount Requirements
LaserVue Light Engine: Mitsubishi has created a new category of
television with laser technology, call "LaserVue". Laser beams provide the widest
range of rich, complex colors, along with most clarity and depth of field.
Mitsubishi harnessed lasers for each primary color (red, green, and blue),
eliminating the need for filters and their inherent compromises. The output of
these lasers remains consistent and true for the life of the product. Unlike
displays that use traditional illumination sources, the uniform and focused
nature of laser light means no complex path of optical components is required to
gather and align the light output. Instead, fiber optic cables channel the laser
outputs to the imager, resulting in a compact, simpler light engine that can be
located separately from the laser source. This, combined with the use of
advanced optics, results in an amazingly thin depth of about 12 inches for a
65-inch diagonal screen size.
Twice the Color: Laser light differs from ordinary light in some
remarkable and beneficial ways. Unlike broad-spectrum white light that
illuminates our world, laser light can be generated to reproduce only a very
narrow bandwidth of the visible spectrum; far more narrow than you would get
from using phosphors or by filtering white light to produce the red, green and
blue primaries. The result is much purer, brighter, primary colors from which to
generate all the remaining colors. This, in turn, translates to a wider range of
colors. LaserVue produces color twice that of an LCD and nearly twice that of a
plasma television. This allows LaserVue to fully reproduce bold colors such as
crimson red, deep purple and neon green.
Ultra-Energy Efficient: Thanks to the concentrated intensity of its
laser beams, LaserVue's picture rivals the brightness of a flat panel TV. Yet,
it consumes only about one-third the power of similarly sized LCD televisions,
and as little as one-quarter the energy of like-sized plasmas. Power consumption
for LaserVue has been measured at 135-watts as measured by a weighted UL
DLP Display System: The Mitsubishi LaserVue DLP HDTV
uses Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology to create its picture
on the screen.
Plush 1080p: The LaserVue TV uses Plush 1080p to convert
lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display. The TV can also accept 1080p
original signals and maintain them at 1080p through all processing until
displayed. All images are displayed at 1080p.
Integrated HDTV Tuner: The
widescreen Mitsubishi LaserVue DLP TV has an internal HDTV tuner able to receive both
over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (via an antenna) and non-encrypted digital
cable broadcasts, including non-encrypted HDTV cable programming.
Smooth 120Hz: Smooth 120Hz
is a unique Mitsubishi technology which displays a more fluid, natural, and
smoother fast moving images, free from motion blur. By removing motion blur,
fast motion scenes are smoother and more natural.
6-Color Processor: Mitsubishi's exclusive 6-Color Processor
produces brighter colors, a wider range of colors and whiter whites.
PerfectColor: PerfectColor is
an exclusive Mitsubishi feature that gives you the ability to adjust the
intensity of six separate colors (Magenta, Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue)
independently of each other and separately for every input. PerfectColor is a
full color matrix, much more powerful than a conventional color intensity control
with only red versus green color balance.
x.v.Color System: x.v.Color is the new standard in high
definition color. The television's x.v.Color Wide Color Palette enables up to
80% more color than standard HDTV for increased realism and vivid, natural
Deep Color Technology: Deep Color creates smooth transitions
between different shades and eliminates color bands and complements the
x.v.Color system's wide color pallet. Enabled by HDMI 1.3, Deep Color goes
beyond previous 8-bit HDTV.
Video Noise Reduction (4D): Mitsubishi's exclusive Video Noise Reduction system uses advanced algorithms
to better identify video noise from fine detail and correct the signal rather
that distort it. The advanced Video Noise Reduction system corrects the image
in four dimensions - horizontally, vertical, within each frame and across
multiple frames to provide and image that is crystal clear and very detailed.
You can set the video Noise Reduction system to 4 settings - High, Medium, Low,
SharpEdge: The SharpEdge signal processing
system enhances horizontal and vertical edges for stunning picture precision.
SharpEdge senses the vertical boundary and amplifies it while minimizing
distortion. The end result is crisp and sharp edges.
DeepField Imager: The DeepField Imager feature constantly adjusts
brightness and contrast for optimum settings in all areas of the picture. It can
even optimize complex scenes containing both dark and bright areas. DeepField
Imager analyzes 135 sectors of the picture in real time, while determining the
optimum blend of contrast and brightness settings for the picture using advanced
algorithms. Based on its picture analysis it dynamically adjusts for areas that
are too high or low in contrast and/or too dark or bright and displays the best
balanced picture in every scene.
TV Display Formats: The TV offers the following TV display
- Standard: The TV's full-screen format, use for HDTV
signals, 4:3 images are stretched evenly to fill the screen, 2.35:1 aspect
