Mitsubishi introduced five fully integrated HDTVs today at its national dealer line show.
All five televisions include Plush(TM) imaging to deliver an unmatched perfect picture every time and ClearThought(TM) technology to make it easy to watch TV.
Mitsubishi's WD-52627 (52-inch), WD-62627 (62-inch), WD-52628 (52-inch), WD-62628 (62-inch) and WD-73727 (73-inch) all boast 1920 x 1080p pixel resolution and Mitsubishi's proprietary Dark Detailer(TM) light engine technology for unmatched contrast and black levels. All five models come with Plush1080p(TM), Mitsubishi's third-generation upconversion system updated for 1080i-to-1080p deinterlacing. The 628 Series and 727 Series models also feature Mitsubishi's new DeepField(TM) imager and SharpEdge(TM), enhancing brightness and contrast. The WD-73727 boasts a powerful 150W lamp for a bold and bright picture, a considerable achievement for a screen of this size.
These new models have two HDMI(TM) inputs, three component video inputs and a nine-format memory card reader. All of these HDTVs are also Digital Cable Ready with CableCARD(TM) and have front panel IEEE1394 inputs with DV decoder to allow easy playback from digital video camcorders.
All five microdisplay televisions use Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing(TM) technology and Mitsubishi's ClearThought(TM) technology to make them the easiest to use full-featured TVs available. ClearThought(TM) includes TV Guide On Screen(R) program guide, and an all-digital audio output that converts analog audio signals to digital. The new models also come with NetCommand(R) 5.0, the latest generation of Mitsubishi's home theater operation system which allows users to set up and control components using simple on-screen icons.
Dark Detailer(TM) is a new Mitsubishi technology that provides enhanced contrast and black levels. It allows a wider palette of dark gray shades, giving a realistic sense of depth to the picture.
DeepField(TM) imager is a new system Mitsubishi developed that allows the television to display enhanced contrast and sharpness. It constantly monitors the picture signal and finely adjusts brightness, contrast and gamma so that every part of every frame is optimized. This results in a picture with greater depth-of-field, especially in scenes with both dark and light areas.
SharpEdge(TM) is the latest version of an exclusive Mitsubishi edge-definition system. New for this year, it enhances both horizontal and vertical edges for stunning picture precision.
In separate announcements, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America introduced its new lines of high-definition LCD and plasma flat panel displays, and Diamond line of 1080p DLP(TM) microdisplay HDTVs.
