Input and Output Notes
HD Definition DLP Display System
With Smooth Picture: The Mitsubishi 734 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.
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 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.
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.
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 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
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 x.v.Color sources
- Natural: suited for most
nighttime viewing and x.v.Color sources
