Enjoy HDTV that's truer than anything you've seen before HDTV delivers exceptional picture quality and real movie-viewing experience that makes television more dynamic, truer than anything you've seen before. It is the latest and best television signal available. It features picture quality more than twice that of traditional analog broadcasts. In order to effectively maximize the HDTV signal, a television must incorporate advanced signal input connectivity and circuitry design.

Active Control with Light Sensor optimizes picture quality Active Control is a unique and intelligent way of optimizing picture quality by measuring and analyzing the incoming signal to automatically adjust picture quality settings. Active Control with Light Sensor uses a sensor to adjust the picture brightness depending on the room light conditions.

Full-color ambient lighting enhances the viewing experience The full-color ambient lights offers you relaxed viewing and a unique ambiance via a soft light glow on the walls surrounding the TV. Research has shown that watching television with adapted ambient lighting promotes more relaxed TV viewing. the Ambilight colors automatically adapt to the images on the screen to add a new sensation to the viewing experience. The light can also be switched to fixed colors or various shades of white. In standby mode, the lights can be operated to any color and create a unique ambiance in the room.

USB and Memory-Card slot for instantly playing multimedia Instantaneously view and share your movies, photos and music. The Memory Card slot will accept cards of type Compact Flash I and II, Memory Stick, SD Card / Mini SD Card, Smart Media, Micro Drive (up to 2 GB) and Multi Media Card. Simply plug the memory card into slot at the side of the TV, and access the multimedia files stored on the card. The USB connector allows access to multimedia files of most USB-sticks and most digital cameras (USB memory-class device).

HDMI input for full digital HD connection in one cable HDMI makes an uncompressed digital RGB connection from the source to the screen. By eliminating conversion to an analog signal, it delivers an unblemished image. The non-degraded signal reduces flicker and leads to a clearer picture. HDMI intelligently communicates the highest output resolution with the source device. The HDMI input is fully backward compatible with DVI sources but includes digital audio. HDMI uses HDCP copy protection.
