5.3 Assign Advanced Picture Functions

Your flat panel display provides various advanced functions for optimizing the picture quality that go beyond basic
adjustments explained earlier in this manual. This section explores the value offered through Pioneer's Pro Adjust
support, top quality blacks, better balanced whites, and overall color improvements.
5.3.1

Adjust for Screen Masking (black bars on sides)

Screen Masks fill areas on both sides of a picture. Some content fails to fill the screen so bars appear on each
side of the picture. This section explains how to adjust screen masking.
Detect Masks
Some HD video signals have 4:3 content with side masks. Side masks are black bars that appear on the picture's
left and right sides. If the flat panel display's Screen Size is set to Natural during the Auto Size process, gray bars
replace the black bars. When the panel is set to Wide Zoom, the bars are hidden. These responses reduce after-
image concerns.
To allow the panel to detect side masks, follow the steps below.
1 ) Access
2 ) Select
3 ) Select
Mode 1 detects only black side masks and Mode 2 detects both black and illustrated side masks. Select Off
to deactivate this function.
4 ) Press HOME MENU to exit the menu.
Video signals can affect the Side Mask Detection function differently. For High Definition pictures when Side
Mask Detection is on, the panel automatically detects images containing side masks and shows the picture in
full screen.
Cycle the screen size to select Auto for video signals that do not carry aspect ratio information.
Video content also can affect the Side Mask Detection function. If a detection error occurs when trying to watch
HD content, manually change the screen size to the proper setting for the content.
HD Wide Mode
The HD Wide Mode allows selecting the display mode (WIDE 1 or WIDE 2) when detecting side masks that appear
in a 4:3 image. This option is available when the Auto Size menu is set to Wide Zoom and Side Mask Detection to
Mode 1 or Mode 2. To allow the HD Wide Mode, follow the steps below.
1 ) Access
2 ) Select
3 ) Select
• Mode 1: screen mode sets to WIDE 1 when detecting side masks.
• Mode 2: screen mode sets to WIDE 2 when detecting side masks.
4 ) Press HOME MENU to exit the menu.
