If you've held off until now to upgrade to a high-definition TV, Mitsubishi's sleek 57" WD-57733 will make you glad you waited. In addition to stellar 1080p picture quality, you get future-ready connectivity, plus user-friendly conveniences that help make day-to-day operation intuitively easy for the whole family.

Color without compromise
Mitsubishi's unique 6-color light engine is the key to the WD-57733's extraordinary color. 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 a brighter, wider range of colors, as well as whiter whites.

Built-in tuners for HD reception, plus inputs for HD expansion
The WD-57733 has built-in tuners to pull in local digital and analog over-the-air broadcasts (antenna required). Plus, a "QAM" tuner allows cable subscribers to watch unscrambled channels — even HD in many areas — without a set-top box.

You'll find a 6-pack of of HD-compatible connections: 3 HDMI and 3 component video. The HDMI inputs are the latest version 1.3 type, providing increased audio and video bandwidth to make you home theater more future-ready. Also, HDMI 1.3 makes it possible to control other compatible HDMI-equipped gear using the TV's remote.

Inputs and Outputs Notes


HD Definition DLP Display System With Smooth Picture: The Mitsubishi 733 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 (received via an antenna) and non-scrambled digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled 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.

xvColor 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 used 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.

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.

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.

  • Natural: Suited for most nighttime viewing.

  • Brilliant: For use under strong light

Picture Settings: In additions to the three Picture Modes, the TV offers the following custom picture settings.

  • Contrast: The contrast setting adjusts the white-to-black-level of the picture.

  • Low: In the Low setting, white images will have a warm cast.

  • High: In the High setting, white images have a cool cast. This setting may provide the most realistic picture under bright lighting.

  • Standard: This is the TV's full-screen format. HDTV signals will use this format. 4:3 images are stretched evenly from side to side. This mode is available for all signals.

  • Wide Expand: This mode enlarges the picture, cropping some of the image on both sides. This expanded format is useful to remove or reduce black side bars added to narrow images that are converted to 16:9 signals for digital broadcast. This mode is available for 1080i, 720p, digital SD 16:9 and digital HD signals.

  • Expand: This setting enlarges the picture to fill the screen , cropping off some of the image at the tope and bottom. This is useful for reducing letter box top and bottom bars. This mode is available for 480i, 480p, and digital SD 4:3 signals only.

  • Zoom: This mode enlarges the picture, cropping off some of the image at each side and top and bottom. This is useful for removing or reducing black top and bottom bars. This mode is available for 480i, 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

  • Stretch: This format stretches a narrow 4:3 image across the screen; there is less stretch in the center than at the sides, This allows the entire narrow image to be displayed across the screen with less distortion than is seen in the Standard format. This format is available for 480i, 480p, and SD 4:3 signals only.

  • Stretch Plus: Similar to the Stretch format, but to minimize distortions on the side, the picture is expanded to crop off portion of the top and bottom. This mode is available for 480i, 480p and SD 4:3 signals only.

  • Digital Captions: For digital channels, broadcasters can send up to six different caption selections or can send analog captions that are the same as those sent by the analog station.
