Product Specifications

You can receive the benefits of improved digital reception without giving up the flexibility of analog. The high resolution flat screen gives an incredible depth of focus and a brighter more detailed picture. Picture in a Picture means you never have to wonder if something better is playing on another channel. Preview it on a split screen. High Focus Electron Gun Flat-screen CRT's demand incredible depth-of-focus. To accomplish this, Sony increased the focal length of the electron gun by 30%. Fine Pitch Aperture Grille Vertical Slits Stretch without interruption from the top of the screen to the bottom for a brighter, more vivid picture. The FD Trinitron picture tube used a new flat APERTURE GRILLE with higher tension, more slits and closer spacing between the slits (finer pitch) resulting in outstanding image detail and clarity. 3D Digital Comb Filter Improves your picture by comparing successive scan lines and lines of successive video frames, to reduce dot-crawl and cross-color distortion more effectively than ever. Dynamic Picture Circuitry Processor continually adjusts dynamic range to match full light-to-dark values. Dynamic Focus Circuitry maintains big-screen focusing accuracy from corner to corner. Velocity Modulation Scanning sharpens picture definition by varying the beam scanning rate to give every object a sharp, clean edge. Magnetic Quadra Pole reduces beam spot distortion and improves corner-to-corner focus, as well as picture sharpness.
