A Single Cable Carries High-Quality Digital Audio and Video
If you have even a moderately complicated home theater setup, you probably have a pile of tangled cables on the floor behind it. Imagine replacing all those cables with a single cable that carries both digital video and audio at the same time. With the new HDMI standard, that's exactly what you get. The HDMI connector on this TV accepts high-quality digital video and audio via the same thin cable, allowing you to run one cable from the source to the TV.
Progressive Scanning for Smooth, Rock Solid Images
Traditional analog TVs display video in an interlaced format that splits each film frame into two separate fields, resulting in visible scan lines and other image artifacts. A progressive scan display shows each film frame as one solid frame, helping to create a stable, solid image free of interlaced artifacts.
Keep Your Kids From Viewing Inappropriate Content
With the help of V-Chip technology, parents can use television ratings codes to black programs that they feel are inappropriate for their children to view. The V-chip can be turned on and off through the on-screen menu using a four-digit, user-programmed code. Once you choose an appropriate ratings level, the V-chip reads the ratings code transmitted with each program and automatically denies access to any programming that exceeds your rating.
Quickly Browse Through Your Favorite Channels
The favorite channel scan feature stores up to 16 of your most frequently watched channels, allowing quick and easy scanning of preferred channels.
Select the Image Settings That Are Best For Each Input
Different sources can sometimes look different depending on broadcast quality and the connection used. The video picture memory feature lets you select from three different default picture settings?Standard, Cinema, or Vivid?and save the best setting for each input individually.
Control Many Different Components With One Remote
Fumbling through a pile of remotes in the dark is a pain. Clean up the mess and take control of your system with the included universal remote control, which can command many different brands and types of components after some simple programming. It even lights up so you can see the buttons in the dark.
