Input and Output 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 720p Light Engine:
Samsung's Cinema Smooth 720p light engine releases the maximum power of the new
generation of DMD microdisplays for the most film-like picture. It creates an
image with no visible pixel structure and accurate shading and better low-light
Faster Color Wheel:
Samsung's 2.2" color wheel spins at 14,400 rpm for
smooth fast motion video, and has five color segments for more accurate colors.
It achieves film-like transitions without pixel breakup found in slower color
wheel designs and slower switching LCD microdisplays. Air Bearing technology
also makes it very quiet.
The television has a display resolution of 1280 x 720. The HDMI and component
video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals, and will display
them as 1280 x 720. All other input signals will also be displayed as 1280 x
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 an NTSC analog tuner.
Samsung's Cinema Mode lets you see colors the way
the director intended, by matching them more closely to production standards.
This creates more accurate colors and natural skin tones when viewing movies on
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.
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, Blue, Green,
Pink, or Custom. The Custom setting allows you to individually set and store
color saturation values between 0 and 50 for Blue, Green, and Pink. If desired,
you can instantly reset the colors to the factory default.
side-panel USB port allows you to connect a USB mass storage device to view JPEG
files and play MP3 audio files. You have access to the following functions:

180°, or 270°.
can enlarge a picture 2x or 4x. Once the image is enlarged, you can move
it around onscreen.
You can play files on the USB device in a slide show. You can adjust the
slide show speed to Slow, Normal, or Fast. You can also choose an MP3
file on the USB device to play as background music during the slide
show. The repeat function allows you to play the slide show again and

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:
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
Enlarges the aspect ratio of the picture to fit the entire screen
4:3: Sets the
picture to 4:3 normal mode with bars on the sides
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.

functions on other brands of components, including VCRs, cable boxes, DVD
players, and set-top boxes.
Side Panel Inputs:
The TV features a set of audio/video jacks (composite video and stereo
RCA audio) on the right side panel. These jacks allow you to easily and quickly
connect a camcorder or video game console. A USB Type A port allows you to
connect a USB mass storage device to view JPEG files and play MP3 audio files.
HDMI: This input
consists of two HDMI terminals and a set of RCA audio jacks. The HDMI terminals
can accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP) to other devices
(such as digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. One of the HDMI
terminals, along with the RCA audio jacks, can be used for a DVI-equipped
component. A separate analog audio connection and a DVI-to-HDMI adapter will be
needed. The HDMI jacks accept 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i signals.
PC: This input
consists of a stereo minijack and an analog RGB (D-Sub 15-pin) jack. This jack
allows you to connect a personal computer with a D-Sub 15-pin output. When using
