Jump into tomorrow with the 42-inch Akai PDP4294 widescreen flat-panel plasma EDTV. It features a built-in dual tuner (PAL/NTSC), progressive-scan picture quality, an incredible 1,200:1 contrast ratio with 700 cd/m2 (candelas per square meter) brightness rating, and an extra-wide 160-degree viewing angle.
The digital comb filter separates colors and eliminates distortion to give you a razor-sharp picture with outstanding clarity. Movie special effects will sound even more powerful with the 14-watt built-in stereo amplifier.
It weighs a relatively light 70.5 pounds and is wall-mountable. It features composite A/V, component-video, and S-video inputs, as well as a computer monitor input (VGA/WXGA).
- Progressive scan: Also called sequential scanning, a progressive-scan system displays the entire image–providing all the horizontal lines per frame, rather than every other line–once every 60th of a second. This method reduces flicker and increases stability. Progressive-scan viewing requires a compatible digital TV.
- Component video: Unlike a single video input, component video maintains the video signal as three separate signals through three jacks. This connection provides optimum quality. To ensure maximum picture quality, use three video-grade cables for the Y, Pb, and Pr connections.
