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.
1080p Resolution: The LG Infinia 50PX950 Plasma TV has a display
resolution of 1920 x 1080. All of the television's video inputs are displayed at
1920 x 1080 (1080p).
Video Inputs: The LG Infinia Plasma HDTV features HDMI, Component, and
Composite video inputs.
- HDMI (ver.1.4 with Deep Color): The four HDMI inputs (3
rear/1 side) can be used to connect a DVD player, Blu-ray player, 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, a separate audio cable will
also be needed from the device to the "PC/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio
jack. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI jacks
will accept 1080p (60/24Hz),1080i, 720p, and 480p video signals; as well as
support Deep Color and 3D content.
- Component Video: The two rear-panel Component Video inputs
will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.

video input which will accept a 480i video signal.
Note: The television's HDMI inputs do not accept 480i video
3D-Ready: This Plasma TV can display 3D (three-dimensional)
video when received from a 3D compatible device. 3D video contains two pictures
for each video frame formatted for each eye. Therefore, special 3D glasses are
required to view 3D video. The optional LG 3D glasses (689S100,
sold separately) enable you to view 3D video and images on this 3D-ready Plasma
television from a 3D-ready source; such as a Blu-ray player, Game system, or
Satellite receiver. The wireless 3D glasses communicate seamlessly with the LG
3D-ready TV via it's built-in emitter. The result is a beautiful, full HD 1080p
three-dimensional experience that brings you closer to the action from the
comfort of your home. The LG Plasma TV offers several 3D modes to match various

Note: The LG Plasma 3D-ready TV along with the
LG's active shutter glasses provide a wide, clear view of the action
with a 6.5-22.9' and 120° viewing range. To experience LG's 3D
technology on this Plasma TV, you will need LG's 3D Active Shutter
Glasses (AG-S100), an HDMI (ver.1.4) connected 3D source (such as a
Blu-ray player or Satellite receiver), and 3D content.
2D-to-3D: 2D images can be
transformed to 3D images. If you are watching a 2D digital broadcast
(720p/1080i), the television can transform those two-dimensional images to
virtual 3D images.
Note: Analog TV and
480i/480p 2D images cannot be viewed in 3D (three-dimensional) mode.
THX Certified 3D Display: The TV's THX Certified 3D Display lets you watch
movies that deliver the meticulous level of visual detail the director
envisioned in the studio. THX (Thomlinson Holman's Experiment) is an
audio and video certification standard established by George Lucas and
Thomlinson. A THX Certified 3D display guarantees screen quality that exceeds the
display standard specification in both hardware and software. The THX Certified
3D Display program adheres to the strictest engineering standards regarding color
accuracy, luminance, black levels, and more. To earn certification, Infinia
passed rigorous laboratory testing covering more than 400 data points. The
result is Infinia's THX Cinema and Right Room modes, which deliver an
compromised cinematic experience at home.
Dual XD Engine: The Infinia 50PX950 combines two of LG's exclusive
XD Engines to maximize picture quality for any
type of video content. LG's Dual XD Engine lets you watch sports, play video
games, and experience high-speed movie action with exceptionally rich detail and
virtually no motion blur. It also completely filters out noise, resulting in a
more pure picture. By combining XD Engine
processors, panel performance is optimized ensuring higher color accuracy
and more realistic images.

black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.
Intelligent Sensor: The LG Infinia Plasma TV's
Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture to the lighting
and color conditions in the room for a more enjoyable viewing experience. Unlike
other sensors which can only sense brightness of ambient light, LG's "Intelligent Sensor" uses 4,096 sensing steps to
evaluate its surroundings. Using a sophisticated algorithm, the LG processes
picture quality elements including brightness, contrast, color, sharpness and
white balance. The result is a picture optimized for its surroundings, more
pleasing to watch and which can also save up to 50% in power consumption.
Picture Size (Aspect Ratio): This feature lets you
choose the way an analog picture with a 4:3 aspect ratio is displayed on your

necessary for professional certification by the Imaging Science Foundation. The
resulting ISF "day" and "night" modes will then be accessible by the user to
experience the best this LG HDTV has to offer. Sophisticated and detailed
calibrations can be made through the ISFccc mode. Detailed calibration requires
a licensed technician. Please contact your local dealer to inquire about an ISF
Image Sticking Minimization (ISM):
A frozen still picture displayed
on the screen for prolonged periods can result in a ghost image. You can use
Orbiter to help prevent image sticking. The other two functions are for removing
a ghost image.
- Normal: If image sticking is never a problem, ISM is
not necessary - set to Normal.
- Orbiter: Orbiter may help prevent ghost images.
However, it is best not to allow any fixed image to remain on the screen. To
avoid a ghost image on the screen, the image will move every 2 minutes.
- Color Wash: The color block with the screen moved a
little and the white pattern are alternately displayed. It is difficult to
see the after image on all colors. Once it has been corrected it will not be
visible in any color.
- White Wash: White Wash removes ghost images from the
screen. Use sparingly. Watch the TV normally for a while before using this
feature to see if the ghost image disappears on its own.
Invisible Speakers: The LG 50PX950 contains a unique invisible speaker
system, tuned by renowned audio expert, Mr. Mark Levinson. The TV's speakers are
