Honeywell HDTV Features

High-definition television (HDTV) is a digital television broadcasting system with higher resolution than traditional television systems (standard-definition TV, or SDTV). HDTV is digitally broadcast because digital television (DTV) requires less bandwidth if sufficient video compression is used.

Full HD 1080p

Although HDTV has become the standard in today's viewing, there is a wide range in what is considered High Definition. HD can begin at 1024 x 768 resolution, or 720i, and extends up to 1920 x 1080 resolution, or 1080p. Because the Altura MLX Series is designed to deliver only the best of quality, 1080p is standard in every unit.1080p_badge.jpg

120Hz EnhancedMotion Technology

Almost every video that you watch has been recorded in 24 FPS, or frames per second and, up until recently, TVs displayed video at a faster 60Hz, or cycles per second. Because 24 does not divide evenly into 60, a 3:2 pull-down method needed to be created for content to display correctly. Even though this method worked, it wasn't perfect and often displayed video "judder" which led to blur or loss in sharpness in video.120Hz_badge.jpg

Our 120Hz EnhancedMotion Technology is designed to fix this judder problem and give you a clearer, sharper image. Our 120Hz doubles the 60Hz frame rate and inserts an interpolated frame by calculating motion paths and inserting an estimated frame in between each frame; resulting smoother motion. Also, by displaying the content in 120Hz, 24fps can now divide evenly into 120Hz by 5 which allows the video content to be displayed in its original, intended form creating more natural and fluid motion.10-bit_color_badge.jpg

10-Bit EnhancedColor Display

Incorporating our new 10-bit EnhancedColor Display, the Altura MLX Series is capable of displaying over 6 times more color than its 8-bit predecessor. With 1.06 billion display colors, you will be able to experience extended color depth and smoother color transitions.hdmi_badge.jpg

the manual that is prvided with the tv is not is not detailed on how to hook a sound bar or external speakers. the manual does not show how to install plug-ins. whoever put that manual togethe should be fired or sent back to manual writing school. in other words there is not enough information in it.
