With a screen measuring 73 inches, the Mitsubishi WD-73833 is one of the largest projection TVs we've ever carried. It's hard to imagine a more compelling way to experience movies, sports, and video games. Diamond Series DLP™ HDTVs offer more of everything that matters: stunning image clarity and color, more versatile connections, and really useful features and controls.

Color without compromise
The key to the WD-73833's exceptionally accurate and vivid color is Mitsubishi's 6-Color Light Engine. Instead of using only the red, green, and blue primaries to create all colors, this system adds three "sub-primary" colors to improve accuracy (see illustration). The high-speed color wheel actually has six different colored filter segments. This innovative approach produces brighter colors and a wider range of colors, as well as whiter whites.

Hands-on videophiles will love the wealth of picture adjustments available. PerfectColor and PerfecTint color palette controls are a powerful combination that let you adjust the intensity and hue of six colors independently without shifting other colors the way most color controls do.

Built-in tuners for HD reception, plus inputs for HD expansion
The WD-73833 has built-in tuners to pull in local digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts (antenna required). Cable subscribers can use the set's "QAM" digital cable TV tuner to watch unscrambled channels without a set-top box.

High-definition material is what this TV was designed for, and you'll want to connect as many HD sources as possible. Mitsubishi has you covered with multiple HDMI, component video, and IEEE 1394 jacks.

HD Definition DLP Display System With Smooth Picture: The Mitsubishi 833 series widescreen HDTV uses Texas Instruments most advanced Digital Light Processing technology for its rear-projection DLP design. In combination with Mitsubishi's exclusive light engines the TV delivers over 2-million pixels. This DLP TV can be used as a high-performance television or multimedia monitor capable of producing stunning high-definition video images and clear, detailed, high-resolution images from a personal computer.

Integrated HDTV Tuner: The widescreen Mitsubishi 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.

6-Color Light Engine: Mitsubishi's exclusive 1080p DLP 6-Color Light Engine generates yellow, cyan, and magenta directly, in addition to the primary colors, for brighter colors, wider range of colors and whiter whites. The resulting picture quality adds realism to yellow sunlight, blue skies, and crimson sunsets.

TurboLight 180: This optical design focuses light more efficiently to produce a 10% brighter on-screen image. TurboLight technology produces a brighter image without increasing the amount of power consumed or heat produced, therefore it does not compromise the life or performance of the lamp. Mitsubishi's TurboLight 180 directs more light to the DLP chip surface resulting in a brighter, more vide on-screen image.

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.

Tru1080p Processing: Mitsubishi's Tru1080p Processing maintains 1080p high definition signals as 1080p from beginning to end of the video signal. All 1080p DV-I, HDMI, and 1080p broadcasts signals are passed through with no down conversions. This advanced 1080p DLP 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 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 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.

4D Video Noise Reduction: Mitsubishi's exclusive 4D 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 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 very detailed.

DarkDetailer: DarkDetailer uses a dynamic aperture system (dynamic iris) to add depth and texture to the picture, it improves the contrast ratio by more than four times, giving you a wide array of colors and shades that are essential for optimal viewing of dark, dramatic scenes while also providing maximum brightness.

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.

PerfectTint: PerfectTint provides the ability to adjust the tint of the six separate colors (Magenta, Red, Yellow, Green, Cyan, Blue) independently of each other and separately for every input. PerfectTint is much more powerful than conventional color tint control, which can only shift the tint of all colors at the same time.

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.

Picture Mode: Picture Mode allows you to optimize the image for different lighting conditions. You can choose from the following Picture Modes:

  • Bright: suited for most daytime viewing and xvColor sources
  • Natural: suited for most nighttime viewing and xvColor sources
  • Brilliant: for use under strong light
  • Game: optimizes picture and video processing for gaming consoles

Picture Settings: In addition to the three Picture Modes, the 833 series TVs offer the following custom picture settings:

  • Contrast: adjusts the white-to-black-level of the picture
  • Brightness: adjusts the overall brightness of the picture
  • Color: adjusts the overall color intensity
  • Tint: adjusts the red-to-green ratio
  • Sharpness: adjusts the picture detail and clarity
  • Color Temperature: adjusts how white is displayed on the TV
    • Low: white images will have a warm cast, closest to 6500K
    • High: white images have a cool cast, may provide the most realistic picture under bright lighting
  • Deep Field Imager:
    • On: black levels dynamically enhanced in portions of the screen to provide strong contrast with detail over mixed screen content
    • Off: contrast adjusted uniformly across the screen
    • Demo: split screen to highlight Deep Field Imager

TV Display Formats: The TV offers the following TV display formats:

  • 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 DVDs have black bars at the top and bottom, but show the entire image correctly
  • Wide Expand: enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides, useful to remove or reduce black side bars added to narrow images that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital broadcast; available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9, and digital HD signals only
  • Expand: enlarges the picture to fill the screen, cropping off some of the image at the top and bottom, useful for reducing letter box bars on non-anamorphic DVDs; available for analog and digital SD 4:3 signals only
  • Zoom: enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image at the sides, top, and bottom, useful for removing or reducing black top and bottom bars on 2.35:1 anamorphic DVDs; available for analog and digital SD 4:3 signals only
  • Stretch: stretches a narrow 4:3 image across the screen non-uniformly; there is less stretch in the center than at the sides, allowing the image to fill the screen with less distortion than is seen in the Standard format; available for analog and digital SD 4:3 signals only
  • Stretch Plus: similar to the Stretch format, but to minimize distortions the picture is expanded to crop off portion of the top and bottom; available for analog and digital SD 4:3 signals only
  • Narrow: displays narrow 4:3 images in their original aspect and adds stationary black side bars to fill the screen; available for analog and digital SD 4:3 signals only

Film Mode: In Film Mode, the TV automatically detects and applies film-decoding correction for images that originated on 24-frame-per-seconds film cameras and were converted to 30-frame-per-second video for broadcast (3:2 pulldown conversion).

Smooth120Hz: By adjusting the algorithm that controls the DLP chip mirrors, Smooth120Hz reduces motion blur in action scenes, but the pixel structure may be visible during slower motion or still scenes. Smooth120Hz can be turned off when not needed.

Split Screen: Split Screen allows you to view pictures from two different sources at the same time. Split Screen is available when you have video sources connected to the TV in addition to connections on ANT 1 or ANT 2. During Split Screen you can switch sound sources between the main and sub-pictures, change the source of the sub-picture, change channel of the sub-picture, freeze the sub-picture, change the size of the sub-picture, or make the sub-picture fill the screen.

Note: Split Screen is unavailable if your only inputs are ANT 1 and ANT 2. A 1080p signal from an HDMI jack can be viewed only as the main picture. The main picture and sub-picture cannot both be HDMI inputs, both be antenna inputs, or both be IEEE 1394 inputs.

Audio Settings: The television features independent Bass, Treble, and Balance settings. These settings can be adjusted from 0 to 63 with 31 as the midpoint (flat).
