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.
Native Resolution: The LCD television displays all inputs at
a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video
inputs will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.
4 HDMI Inputs: The four HDMI inputs (3 rear/1 side) can be used to connect a DVD
player, Game console, HDTV or Satellite Set-top box with an HDMI output. The
HDMI 1 input can also be used to connect a device with a DVI output (a
DVI-to-HDMI adapter cable is necessary). If a DVI-equipped device is used,
separate audio cables will also be needed from the device to the "DVI In" RCA
stereo audio jacks. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The
HDMI input can also be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI jack will
accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i signals.
2 Component Video Inputs: The two rear-panel Component Video jacks will accept 1080p,
1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. One of the component video inputs can also
be used as a composite video input.
Contrast Ratio: This TV has an 100,000:1 dynamic contrast
ratio, giving you brilliant brightness and contrast for superior picture and
detail from both PC and TV images.
4ms Response Time: One of the most important features for an
LCD panel is the pixel response time. Response time refers to the amount of time
it takes a pixel to "refresh" itself-to go from being active to being inactive,
(ready to be re-activated). The lower the milliseconds, the faster the response
time. The television's very fast 4ms response time virtually eliminates any
blurring and gives you smooth-motion action scenes
Auto Motion Plus 120Hz: Auto Motion Plus 120Hz technology
virtually eliminates any motion blur and creates smooth transitions between
frames. Auto Motion Plus calculates the image between frames and inserts it,
creating a non-repetitive transition from one to the next. The result is a
clearer picture than ever before. You can select from 5 Auto Motion Plus 120Hz
- Clear: sets Auto Motion Plus 120Hz to minimum
