Philips 34PW9818 16:9 HD-ready direct-view monitor

Philips 34PW9818 16:9 HD-ready direct-view monitor

 

Take an informal survey of HDTV owners and you'll find few complaints about HD- or DVD-sourced picture quality. Most are thrilled by what they see. But ask about the view from standard 480i NTSC cable or satellite and the grumbling begins. Part of the...

Great TV with too many features

 

First, check out reviews in Home Theater Magazine where top of the line TVs (Philips, Toshiba, Sony and Zenith) were compared side by side. The result was cryptic and the stats looked like Sony won, but… All the panelists only talked about Philips...

Product Specifications

PixelPlus creates near High Definition (HD) performance inside the 34PW9818 on the basis of a regular input signal. By doubling the number of lines and the number of pixels per line, Pixel Plus enhances both regular broadcasts and DVD input for unparalleled sharpness and depth. Digital Natural Motion offers razor-sharp reproduction of movement and motion. The unique and highly advanced processing calculates motion trajectories of moving picture elements. It corrects jerky movement from both studio programs or movie material. Scavem and DAF (Dynamic Astigmatic Focus) provide for excellent picture quality. Progressive Scan with Eye Fidelity doubles the number of visible picture lines per field. You'll get a jitter-free and quiet picture with astonishing sharpness. 3D Surround is based on Dolby Pro Logic signals and creates Virtual rear speakers. Built in Dolby Pro Logic decoder (Full DSP) offers full surround experience with minimum of installation. The integrated center speaker gives best possible position for dialog reproduction. Separate surround outputs.
