Hitachi 55VS69 55 LCD Projection HDTV
Enjoy huge, high-definition video in your own home theater with the 55-inch Hitachi 55VS69 LCD projection HDTV.
One-third slimmer and less than half the weight of a comparably-sized CRT-based projection model, this LCD set features a high output light source, advanced prism system, and a three-panel 720p LCD Light Engine with an 11-element lens system to produce an exceptionally bright, sharp picture.
Improvements along the light path include special filters and polarizers that ensure brighter whites and darker blacks. Its industrial design features minimal bottom speakers to create an
ultra-sleek form factor as well as a silver and black finish for a striking modern look.
Youll enjoy 480p, 720p and 1080i high-definition viewing right out of the box thanks to the built-in digital ATSC tuner, which pulls HD signals right from the airwaves.
You can also connect the set to an optional receiver or cable/satellite set-top box using either the HDMI or component connections (thanks to its built-in QAM tuner for unscrambled cable HD reception).
An analog NTSC tuner receives standard-definition (SD) programming. And the sets CableCARD port means the set will also receive digital cable television systems services directly from a compatible
cable operator without requiring a bulky, external cable box.
The proprietary Hitachi VirtualHD 1080p video processor de-interlaces 1080i programs to provide as much detail as possible for a clear, sharp image.
Hitachis dynamic histogram processing delivers improved contrast, color and sharpness while reducing noise to a minimum. Each video frame is processed as a digital still image in real time with an
astounding 68-billion color capability to produce the best final on-screen image.
This set performs 3:2 pulldown detection and reversal, too--a handy feature for watching progressive-scan movie programs in their native 24-frame format. To adapt 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video, frames in the original movie must be duplicated; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this duplication by removing the redundant information to display a frame-accurate picture.
A 3D Y/C comb filter (4 MB) further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical
line, as in a depiction of a characters striped T-shirt). Rounding out the features is an anti-reflective diffusion screen, multiple color temperatures, black enhancement, three HD aspect modes, six
SD aspect modes, and split screen/picture-in-picture capability.
A separate Day and Night Memory for each input ensures the optimum picture quality during the daytime or nighttime for each source. Simply press the Day/Night button on the remote or use the automatic timer to switch between bright daytime settings and high-fidelity nighttime settings. Other convenience features include a sleep timer, closed caption decoding, tri-lingual on-screen display (English, French, Spanish), and V-Chip parental controls.
