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.
