Sanyo DP19657 Wide Screen Integrated Digital LCD HDTV

HDTV  (High Definition Digital TV)
900 horizontal lines of progressive scanning (900p) provide an exceptionally clean and detailed picture when the DTV is receiving a High Definition signal. Equipped with an integrated analog (NTSC) and digital (ATSC) tuner to receive both analog and DTV off-air (terrestrial) signals or both analog cable and Clear QAM unscrambled digital cable channels.

Off-Air Digital Signals (terrestrial)

An increasing number of TV stations are broadcasting DTV versions of some of their regular programming at the same time as their NTSC broadcasts using different channels assigned to them by the FCC. This unit can receive and decode all 18 ATSC digital television formats. All broadcasters are scheduled to switch to DTV broadcasts by February 2009.

Almost all the digital channels can be received using a UHF antenna. Indoor antennas like rabbit ears or bowtie types should work if you are near the broadcast tower. But you will need a proper outdoor antenna if you are located 30-40 miles from the tower. Antenna height and an unobstructed line of sight affect signal reception. Buildings, steeples, towers, and other structures taller than four stories within four blocks of your location can mask or deflect signals.

Wide Screen 16:9 Aspect Ratio Flat Picture
The 16:9 ratio Wide-Screen gives the viewer a full picture of movies and broadcasts, rather than a normally cropped picture in the 4:3 ratio.The 16 by 9 format means that you can watch movies the way you would watch them in the theater while the true flat screen reduces reflections from room lights and windows for outstanding clarity and quality images from corner to corner.

Digital 3DY/C Comb Filter
Provides high resolution and picture sharpness while eliminating 'dot crawl.' Also offers sharper, clearer, more detail-perfect color picture reproduction.

Component Video Input (Y-Pb-Pr / R-L)
Component video inputs (green-blue-red) take advantage of  DVD players and other devices with component video outputs. Video signal is divided into three separate elements; red (Pr), blue (Pb) and luminance or image brightness (Y) with dedicated Audio (R/L) jacks. Superior to both composite and S-video because it delivers a quality picture with greater resolution, better color accuracy, and less color bleeding.

Audio/Video Connection Package includes

*2-sets of Component Input Jacks (Y-Pb-Pr)
*1 S-Video Input Jack
*1-set of Composite Video Input Jacks
*3-Sets of Audio Input Jacks (R/L)
*1 Digital Audio Ouput Jack (Coaxial)

Enjoy a better quality picture and connect more equipment directly to your TV using these sets of A/V Input Jacks. The Component Video Input Jacks are best for "progressive scan" DVD players, game consoles, and DSS satellite receivers having component video outputs. The S-Video Input Jack is better than composite video input for connecting a DVD player or Super-VHS VCR for a higher-resolution picture.

DTV  Remote with PIX Shape key
This remote control has a video input selection key to allow the user to select an A/V input source without going to the menu. Other Info, Audio, Caption, and Pix Shape keys allow immediate access to these functions and settings.

Picture Shapes
Available options: PIX 1, PIX 2, PIX 3, and PIX 4 will vary depending on the format of the signal received and chosen aspect ratio.

Pre-set Picture/Sound Selections
Allow you to choose from either Auto or Manual (with Tone Control). Your controls are automatically adjusted for the best viewing and listening. Manual adjustments are always possible.

Digital Audio and MTS/SAP Stereo
Uses an improved audio system to reproduce true (right/left) high-fidelity sound. A third track allows you to hear Secondary Audio Programs (SAP), if available.

Digital Audio Output
Coaxial connection for advanced Dolby Digital 5.1 (AC-3) stereo systems.
Dolby Digital 5.1 audio is available at the Digital Audio Output only when received as part of a Digital Antenna signal being viewed on the screen.
