and exceed the demands of a High Definition image at its full 1080 line resolution. Digitally transmitted High Definition signals can
contain over 2 million individual detail points that need to be displayed accurately and rapidly. SXRD displays those 2 million detail
points per SXRD panel accurately since the 3 SXRD chips actually contain enough pixels to fully display a 1080 line picture without
SXRD has the speed to create a smooth, film like image. The SXRD chips have a blistering 2.5ms response time (total rise and fall time),
which exceeds the demands of even the most rapidly moving High Definition images. And SXRD creates highly accurate, natural colors
because the 3-chip design displays all the colors, all the time.
Advanced Iris Function
darker scenes. The Advanced Iris function is enabled by using either one of two modes ? Auto and Manual. The Auto Mode has two
settings designed to work best with video content such as movies that vary between bright scenes and dark scenes. Auto 1 is for
programs that have a wide range of brightness from scene to scene. Auto 2 is for programs that have less variation between brightness
levels from scene to scene.
The Manual mode is used to help deliver optimum contrast levels under different room lighting conditions. The High mode offers
maximum screen brightness and works well when a room is brightly lit. The Medium mode is for average levels of light. And the Low
mode offers the maximum amount of contrast and works best under low light conditions. The key benefits are deep blacks and
improved brightness and overall contrast.
WEGA Engine™ Video Processor
exclusive WEGA Engine™ is born. Its fully digital signal-processing path includes video processing functions that are designed to
improve overall picture quality. Among the key functions that have been added to the WEGA Engine are:
> Green, blue and white color enhancer circuit, which selectively adjusts common natural colors like green, white and blue color levels
for a more vivid image,
> Digital MPEG Noise Reduction Circuit, which reduces MPEG artifacts such as "block noise" and mosquito noise" caused by
compression used in digital broadcasts used to maximize bandwidth.
> Digital Contrast Enhancer circuit processes every field automatically selecting out details and optimizing contrast for each scene.
Adaptive processing improves the low contrast parts of the picture providing crisp and vivid images with high contrast.
The overall result of WEGA Engine has to be seen to be believed.
HDMI™ and PC Inputs
range of input interfaces. The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital
audio/video interface. HDMI technology supports enhanced or High Definition video, together with multi-channel digital audio to
provide matchless image and sound reproduction. A D-Sub 15 input also allows connection to your PC, allowing you to use your high
resolution Grand WEGA TV as a computer monitor .
