HDTV PROJECTION MONITOR
Progressive Scan/HDTV monitor
All SDTV and HDTV signals are converted to 1080i and displayed at
DVI (Digital Visual Interface) with Copy Protection
The combination of Digital Visual Interface (DVI) and High-bandwidth
Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is important for viewing copy-
protected digital contents through SAT/CATV BOX or DVD player.
DIGITAL input terminal receives the signal in the form of digital
information. In this way, all signals coming into this interface have a
very high resolution and less noise compared to an analog interface.
Dual System Component Input for NTSC/
Connection to a DVD player using the component output terminals
makes possible a high picture-quality display, superior to that of a S-
VIDEO terminal connection. This also handles high resolution
component input (1080i, 480p), which will function as an interface
for high-quality images in future.
Dual Tuner (Split Screen and CH Search screen
Two TV tuners are provided, making it possible to split the screen
vertically in two areas in order to display moving images
simultaneously on each of them. In addition, the channel search
function makes it possible to check and perform other functions etc.,
on the program that you choose to run in the background, while
viewing the foreground program. This adds remarkable convenience
when you are concerned with viewing two programs.
Pioneer PureCinema III Format Converter
An advanced and exclusive I/P (Interlace/Progressive) third generation
format converter called "PureCinema III", delivers a high-resolution
progressive picture (480p) or Interlaced picture(1080i). *This is USER
It reproduces film material in a very smooth and film-like image.
This is perfect technology for movie lovers.
Anti-Reflective Tinted Protection Panel
The accompanying protective panel is AR (Anti-Reflective) coated
This is not only to protect the screen, but to present a more natural
and high contrast image with less light reflection. This AR coating is
very durable against scratching.
Lens System for HDTV
The adoption of a specialized lens system for high-resolution HDTV
which faithfully reproduces HDTV 1080i signals allows for highly color-
saturated images to be displayed at high resolution. Also, by
incorporating an "achromatic coated" lens for the blue CRT, the
picture image is reproduced with less halo and appears sharp.
Reference Theater mode and PRO mode
<Reference Theater Mode>
This mode reproduce film material just like a real film image. By
cutting video enhancement circuits, the picture becomes more natural
and looks film-like.
This mode offers pro level video adjustment to the user. You can go
into several areas such as: LTI (Luminance Transient Improvement),
Gamma, White Balance.
Fully Illuminated Remote Control Unit
A fully illuminated universal remote control is used that makes it
possible to operate other devices. Remote operations can thus be
performed easily even in dark rooms and similar environments.
Multi-Point Convergence System
Convergence of the red, green, blue guns* in the TV is critical to a
good picture. Thanks to new convergence system digital technology,
not only can the center of the screen be adjusted, so can an amazing
72 other points across the entire viewing area. This ensures color
accuracy throughout the screen. The adjustment is easily done from
the remote control. (*guns = cathode ray tubes)
Room Light Sensor (RLS)
When you select RLS "on" (LEVEL1, LEVEL2), in accordance with
the ambient light of your room, the TV automatically adjusts the
picture brightness to reduce eye strain.
Program Block (V-CHIP)
You can block selected programs based on the established rating
system for television programs and movies. The rating systems are
<U.S.A. RATING SYSTEM>
The TV parental Guidelines are used to rate television programming:
<TV-Y>, <TV-Y7>, <TV-G>, <TV-PG>, <TV-14> and <TV-MA>.
The Motion Picture Association of America(MPAA) guidelines are used
to rate movies: <G>, <PG>, <PG-13>, <R>, <NC-17>, <X> and <NR>.
<CANADIAN RATING SYSTEM>
The Canadian English Language Rating System is used to rate
television programming: <C>, <C8+>, <G>, <PG>, <14+> and <18+>.
The Canadian French Language Rating system is used to rate
television programming: <G>,<8+>,<13+>,<16+> and <18+>.
In order to block programming you feel is inappropriate, rating limits
can be set on both systems using the remote control and a password.

PROTECTION AND LOCATION OF YOUR HDTV PROJECTION MONITOR
If an outside antenna is connected through other
equipment, be sure the antenna system is grounded so
as to provide protection against voltage surges and built-
up static charges. In the U. S. A., section 810 of the
National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70, provides
information on proper grounding of the mast and
supporting structure, grounding of the lead-in wire to
an antenna-discharge unit, size of grounding
conductors, location of antenna-discharge unit,
connection to grounding electrode, and requirements
for the grounding electrode.
