53" TheaterView HD Projection Television
All TheaterView HD televisions have the following Standard features:
* 16:9 Modes (Vertical Compression & Letterbox)
The Compression Mode creates black bars at the top and bottom of the
screen and displays all 1080 lines inside the illuminated 16:9 portion
of the screen. The Letterbox Mode actively scans the entire screen,
creating gray bars above and below the picture area. This mode
significantly reduces the chances of uneven CRT wear or "burn-in" when
compared to the Compression Mode.
* Red & Green Color Lens Filters
* TheaterBright Screen with SLD
Utilizes a double lenticular (two-lens) configuration, combining a
Fresnel and fine .72mm pitch BlackStripe screen. The screen is tinted
for increased contrast, and a surface layer diffuser is incorporated,
which concentrates the tinting on a thinner layer of the surface of the
screen. The result is a high resolution, high brightness screen with a
wide 160 degree viewing angle for use in any room.
* Wide 160 degree Horizontal Viewing Angle
* 3D Y/C Digital Comb Filter (4MB, 10-bit) with Vertical Contour Correction.
This advanced filter analyzes sequential fields of information to
eliminate dot crawl and color bleed. Additionally, the 3D Y/C (4MB,
10-bit) Comb Filter significantly reduces detail noise, seen as
shimmering or flicker, in complex or intricately detailed scenes.
* Advanced Velocity Scan Modulation
By varying the speed of the electron beam scanning of the CRT this
feature improves dark to light transitions to improve contrast and
overall picture sharpness.
* Wide Band Video Amplifier
As standard video amplifiers increase the gain of the video signal, video
bandwidth tends to decrease it. This eliminates higher frequencies,
reducing resolution. A wide-band video amplifier maintains higher
frequencies, enabling higher resolution.
* Dynamic Quadruple Focus
A cathode ray picture tube (CRT) has an electron gun that sends the
electron beam to the faceplate of the tube to make a picture. The
distance from the gun to the center of the tube is different from the
distance to the edges and corners of the tube. In addition, the angle of
the beam is different, causing an elliptical instead of round beam spot.
Because of this, edge and corner focusing usually suffers. Dynamic
Quadruple Focus adjusts the speed and angle of the electron beam so that
it produces a fine round beam spot everywhere on the tube. This ensures
a sharp clear picture from corner to corner.
* Fine White & Black Level Expander
Fine White reduces CRT output for narrow white peak areas. This avoids
blooming and provides sharp edges between white areas and darker areas.
BLE increases the Black Threshold Level, so blacks are pure black, not
dark gray. This significantly improves overall picture contrast, making
images appear sharper and more three-dimensional.
* Color Temperature Control
Provide three user-selectable color temperature settings: Warm (NTSC
standard = 6,500 Degrees Kelvin), which optimizes light output for low
room light viewing conditions; Medium; and Cool which optimizes light
output for rooms that have a high ambient light condition. This feature
also allows you to adjust the picture to meet your individual taste.
* MTS Stereo/SAP with dbx
A Multi-channel Television Sound decoder enables the television to accept
and decode broadcast stereo signals. Unlike some systems that delete
dbx, MTS provides the full quality of the original stereo broadcast
content. SAP (Secondary Audio Program) enables the reception of
bilingual broadcasts, when available.
* 30 Watts Audio (total)
* Trilingual Color Icon On-Screen Display
All TV functions can be easily accessed using the remote control and the
on-screen display. This full-featured system can be operated in
English, French, or Spanish. By using the four cursor buttons on the
remote control, your favorite features or settings are only a click away.
* 2 Sets of ColorStream HD Component Video Inputs (Y, Pr, Pb)
ColorStream HD inputs allow connection of multiple component video
signals, including 480i (DVD), 480p (Progressive DVD) and 1080i HDTV
(Digital Set-Top Box). All HDTV compatible models contain two sets
of ColorStream HD inputs for maximum connectivity.
* Front Panel A/V/S Inputs
Front A/V inputs are perfect for connecting a camcorder and other
portable devices such as video game players.
* Dual Rear A/V Inputs
* Dual Rear S-Video Inputs
* Dual RF Inputs
Two RF (or antenna) inputs allow you to connect both cable TV and an
antenna - or two cable feeds - simultaneously, ensuring you optimum
utility of the Dual-Tuner PIP feature.
* Center Channel Audio Input
* Variable Audio Output
* A/V Outputs
A/V outputs allow you to send the audio/video signal to a VCR for
recording. The fixed audio outputs can also be connected to an A/V
receiver, providing a cleaner signal for two-channel based home theater
Extra Features for this model:
* HDTV Compatible
* High Contrast PowerFocus HC Lens System
Boosts contrast by 50 percent compared to competing 5-element systems.
* PowerFocus HD CRTs
PowerFocus HD CRTs (Cathode Ray Tubes) utilize numerous image-enhancing
advancements, including a higher beam current and finer beam spot, for a
30% increase in sharpness and a 10% increase in brightness over standard
CRTs. The PowerFocus HD Optic System enables this model to take
advantage of crystal-clear HDTV signals, producing up to 1280 lines
* IDSC-Pro (Intelligent Digital Scan Conversion) (540p/1080i)
Allows all video signals received by the television to be displayed at a
single scanning frequency. This allows Toshiba to select a single, no
compromise, focus point for each projection television model. This
produces an overall sharper picture from any signal, including 1080i
HDTV. Frame, line and pixel doublers are selectively utilized to create
full-frame progressive images from interlaced NTSC signals. Hyper
Progressive Scanning analyzes 13,600 points on the screen, to create
smooth edges and eliminate "stairstepping" artifacts. Finally, Advanced
Digital Noise Reduction can be incorporated to give smooth, noise free
images from analog signals such as Cable TV or VCRs.
* TouchFocus Auto Digital Convergence
Enables a quick return to a perfect convergence setting by depressing a
single button on the set's front panel. The system even makes adjustment
to compensate for natural and man-made magnetic fields. Manual override
adjustments are also maintained. With TouchFocus, sharp accurate focus
from corner to corner is easier than ever.
* Advanced Digital Video Noise Reduction
This active threshold circuitry reduces snow and other high-frequency
video noise found in grainy, low quality video signals. A cleaner,
smoother picture is created from nearly any program source.
* First Surface Mirror
A First Surface Mirror places its reflective material on the front of the
mirror. This lets light reflect off the front of the mirror without
passing through any glass. Standard second surface mirrors, similar to
common household mirrors, require light to pass through a glass layer on
the way to the reflective surface and then again on the way out. The
natural light refraction that occurs causes "ghosting" that results in
decreased picture sharpness. First Surface Mirrors eliminate this
unnecessary refraction, avoiding image degradation and delivering a crisp
* Built-in High Contrast TheaterShield
TheaterShield is an acrylic shield that protects the screen. Unlike some
standard shields, the TheaterShield incorporates a special hard coat to
* Dynamic Contrast
Included on all Toshiba HDTV Compatible HDTV models, this feature
continually analyzes picture information and enhances those parts of the
picture with the most detail information. The result is sharper, deeper
images with richer colors and a more film-like image from 480i sources.*
This circuitry identifies original film-based content from DVDs. Then,
instead of simply passing the signal through for processing, it
reassembles the frame sequence to more accurately reproduce the original
24 frame film-based material. This eliminates the possibility of errors
or artifacts that can be caused by simply doubling the signal.
* SRS 3D Sound
This advanced sound system creates a wide three-dimensional sound field
from the television's internal speakers.
* Sub Bass System (SBS)
This system creates a bass boost at and around the 100-cycle audio-
frequency area. This creates a noticeable increase in bottom end and
overall fullness, for an improved home theater sound.
* Back Lit Universal Remote Control
The Universal Remote Control is preprogrammed to operate the TV, most
brands of VCR, and a cable box. The keys are intuitively positioned to
give you fast access to virtually all TV functions.
* MultiWindow (Dual-Tuner Picture-In-Picture (PIP)
Now you can watch two channels at once, or find out what's on all your
favorite channels. Two built-in tuners allow Picture-In-Picture without
the use of a VCR. In Single-Box Mode, you can change the size of the
sub-picture, move it to different locations on the screen, or freeze it.
Six-Box Mode allows a continuous Channel Preview of all your favorite
channels in six sub-pictures along the bottom of the display. In
Nine-Box Mode, nine of your favorite channels can be previewed in a
"tic-tac-toe" formation. You can also strobe Freeze the line action in
those nine boxes.
* 2-Level Mute
Volume is muted 50% by a first touch and 100% by a second, providing
quick access to instant volume control.
* Speed Surf
Hold down the channel up or down button and the Speed Surf box appears.
In addition to channel numbers, channel ID information (HBO, CBS, ESPN)
is displayed, allowing you to scan more quickly to your desired channel.
* Front Panel Lock-Out
The television's front panel buttons, with the exception of the power
button, can be rendered inoperable. This makes the set's remote control
the only way to access functions. This feature is particularly
beneficial when small, button pushing, children are present.
* One Button Sleep Timer
The Sleep Timer allows you to fall asleep watching TV and have the TV
turn itself off up to three hours later (in 10-minute intervals).
* Closed Captioning (on Mute)
This feature automatically displays captioned information (if available)
on-screen when the MUTE button is pressed. Captions disappear when the
volume is restored.
* V-Chip Parental Control
This feature allows adults to decide which show ratings are appropriate
for children. The TV will then block out the audio and video of any
program that has a rating beyond that level. Adults can override the
system at any time using their secret code.
* Channel Return
Pressing this button returns you to the last channel you were viewing.
This allows you to easily switch back and forth between two channels.
* Favorite Channel
This feature allows you to designate up to nine of your most frequently
viewed channels as favorite channels. Engaging this feature will allow
you to scan only your pre-selected favorite channels. Two independent
sets of nine channels can be selected, allowing two different viewers to
enjoy this feature on one set.
* Individual A/V Settings for Inputs
This feature lets you customize settings for your individual inputs,
