Yamaha PDM-5520 Plasma Display Monitor

ALIS Method Panel
The PDM-5520 uses a highly advanced e-ALIS Method (extended Alternate Lighting of Surface) panel whose pixels are defined electronically rather than physically, allowing each picture element to be smaller than normal. This creates a higher pixel count for a smoother, seamless picture. The panel employs new plasma gas and luminescent materials that are more effective than previous types, and the area coated with the luminescent material is greater. This results in the industry's highest level of brightness, 1,000 cd/m2. The 1,366 x 768 resolution provides a completely HDTV picture, with no noise at the edges.

Natural Black Drive System
Natural Black DriveYamaha’s Natural Black Drive System automatically determines the brightness of the screen and applies the gray scale (contrast) best suited to the scene in order to reproduce both bright and dark areas. The contrast ratio is an outstanding 1,000:1.

The Natural Black Drive system provides deeper blacks and sharper overall contrast.

Digital Linear Color Control
Digital Linear Color Control continually maintains the ideal balance between the three main colors (red, green, blue) for optimum color reproduction in every scene from very dark to very bright. The sharpness and tint of each color are independently controlled, so you can adjust tint more precisely.

Mode Selection for Best Picture Quality
The PDM-5520 offers several modes that allow you to adjust the picture to obtain maximum quality. There are two Picture modes (Day and Night), four White Balance modes (Normal, Cool, Warm,Black-White), and a Film mode for watching movies.

High Quality Sound
A digital amplifier supplies 12W x 12W of low-distortion stereo sound. SRS TruBass and Matrix Surround are provided, as well as four audio modes (Movie, Music, Speech, Favorite).
