Input and Output Notes
Integrated HDTV Tuner:
The widescreen Mitsubishi LCD TV has an internal HDTV tuner able to receive
both over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (received via an antenna) and non-encrypted
digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled HDTV cable programming. There
is also a CableCard slot, giving you a way to receive encrypted cable broadcasts
without a cable box.
Digital Cable Ready (CableCard
Slot): The Mitsubishi HDTV can descramble a cable provider's one-way digital
signal with the use of an optional CableCard security module (contact your local
cable provider for availability and service). The CableCard is used in place of
a traditional cable box to access digital cable programming (including high
Mitsubishi's Smooth120Hz refresh rate eliminates motion blur, especially in fast
moving action scenes.
1080p High-Definition LCD Display System:
The Mitsubishi LT-46244 LCD Flat Panel HDTV features a full 1920 x 1080 LCD
panel so you get a true 1080p picture without any scaling from a 1080p source.
All non-1080p images input into the television will be up-converted and also
displayed at 1080p. The television's four HDMI inputs will accept video signals
from 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p (24Hz, 30Hz, and 60Hz) sources; while its three HD component video inputs
will accept video signals from 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i sources.
Plush 1080p: Mitsubishi
developed the Plush 1080p technology so that everything you watch looks better
on the 1080p HDTV. It reformats 720p and 1080i HDTV signals in order to fill the
TV's native resolution 1080p screen with a sharp, clear picture. Plush 1080p
scales and converts the picture precisely with minimal side effects, achieving
greater detail and clarity.
Mitsubishi's Tru1080p Processing maintains 1080p high definition signals as
1080p from beginning to end of the video signal. All 1080p HDMI, DVI (with
adapter) and 1080p broadcasts signals are passed through with no down
conversions. This advanced 1080p technology for HDTV viewing delivers over
2 million pixels to you on-screen for a full and true 1920 x 1080 resolution.
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 colors.
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.
Color 4D Video Noise Reduction:
Mitsubishi's exclusive Color 4D Video Noise Reduction system used advanced
algorithms to better identify video noise from fine detail and correct the
signal rather that distort it. The advanced 4D 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
PerfectColor: PerfectColor is another
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.
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
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 formats to choose from:
Standard: This is the
TV's full-screen format. HDTV signals will use this format. 4:3 images are
stretched evenly from side to side. This mode is available for all signals.
Wide Expand: This mode
enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This
expanded format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars added to
narrow images that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital broadcast. This
mode is available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.
