The high-definition (HD tuner not included) ready, 1024 x 1080i HD plasma panel uses the latest panel technology, such as Philips' proprietary Crystal Clear package of innovations featuring a 3D digital comb filter (eliminates dot crawl and colour bleeding, enhancing fine detail, cleaning up image outlines, and removing most extraneous colours), Dynamic Contrast for deep blacks and pure whites, and green and blue colour enhancement. The high 10000:1 contrast ratio gives you better subtle colour details and the ability to see the picture in bright light conditions, and the 3-millisecond response time means it's capable of handling fast-moving action without image blur or lag.
Active Control delivers the best picture setting, any time, from any source. The incoming signal is automatically analyzed and key picture settings, like sharpness, colour, and contrast, are adjusted. The 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio is the best for viewing HDTV and DVDs so you can have a more realistic cinema experience, but the TV has zoom modes for viewing 4:3 analogue broadcast TV and pan-and-scan-formatted video.
Built-in flat speakers (15 watts per channel) sit on either side of the Plasma screen, giving you full stereo sound without needing to connect to an external speaker system. Virtual Dolby Surround sound support simulates cinema surround sound effects without the need for rear speakers. Philips' Smart Listening auto volume leveling eliminates drastic volume spikes while changing channels or when channels go to a commercial break.
Other features include 160-degree horizontal and 160-degree vertical viewing angles, 100 preset channels, Autostore for easy tuning, Auto Picture (five modes give you picture settings for different types of programming), Auto Sound (four modes to tailor the TV sound to enhance what you're watching), multi-language onscreen display, sleep timer, integrated DIGITAL tuner, and RF jack for analogue terrestrial reception, ergonomic remote control, and an anti-reflective screen.
Want to do more than just watch TV? The 42PF5521D/10 has 2 rear SCART sockets, 2 HDMI connectors and a component input that helps minimize digital and line-scan artifacts during DVD playback. And, because the TV is progressive scan, it can take advantage of the more film-like images produced by progressive-scan DVD players. A set of side jacks has a composite A/V input with S-video, a mini headphone jack, and an audio in.
With this TV enjoy the benefits of digital TV, Electronic Program Guide and digital quality content. Also watch superb pictures with Digital Crystal Clear and Active Control. PRODUCT FEATURES: High definition LCD WXGA display, resolution 1366 x 768p; Inte
