3DTV Product Features

Welcome to the 3DTV product features page. This page contains product features and details for 3DHD TVs. The site map on the right will take you each of these TVs and other 3DTV pages that might be of interest to you just by selecting the appropriate link. All the TVs on this page are 3D ready according to the manufacturer. I would recommend that you go to the retail store that has them and take a personal look before buying. Also, do not forget that you will need to buy special 3D glasses to watch your programming on these TV's. On the purchase links page there are links for these glasses.


If you want to watch 3D Blu-ray movies, you will need a 3D Blu-ray player. I have included features for other 3DTV's even though there are no purchase links available for them yet. As more 3DTV's become available, I will update this page with this information.

3. Mitsubishi WD-65737

Description:

With picture performance that outpaces today's smaller flat panels, Mitsubishi's 65-inch WD-65737 offers a larger than life, intensely vivid viewing experience. Mitsubishi Home Theater TVs define the large screen entertainment category by offering incomparable value and stronger performance than smaller flat panel televisions. Mitsubishi's all new 737 series are highly efficient, and come equipped with 3D-ready viewing technology, providing the best option for enjoying 3D content in the home.

Features:

1080p High-Definition DLP Display System
The WD-65737 uses Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology for rear-projection TVs to create the picture you see on screen. All images are displayed at 1080p, and the TV uses Plush 1080p 5G to convert lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display. It'll also accept 1080p original signals and maintain them at 1080p through all processing until displayed.

3D Ready
All Mitsubishi 1080p DLP HDTVs are 3D Ready. This feature lets you experience the new 3D technologies applied to many recent movies and video games. Immerse yourself in your favorite video game, movie, or sporting event displayed in 3D.

16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
Enjoy a full theatrical experience in the comfort of your home. View pictures as film directors intended them. Digital TV broadcasts, DVDs and newer video game consoles support this widescreen format.

6-Color Processor / Perfect Color
Mitsubishi's 6-Color Processor processes and produces images with six different colors--instead of the traditional three--to display a wider range of colors, brighter colors and whiter whites. Perfect Color replaces the traditional "tint" control on TVs, giving users far more control over their on-screen picture. Adjust six colors independently to dial in the perfect picture.

Smooth 120Hz
Mitsubishi's Smooth 120Hz Film Motion takes 120Hz technology to the next level with dejudder for film originated content. In the conversion of film-to-video for display, 24Hz artifacts can be seen in slow panning scenes. Smooth 120Hz Film Motion eliminates this artifact for smooth, crisp, fast and slow action content.

7. Samsung PN-50C7000

Description:

Samsung's best plasma picture ever
Picture depth has always been a strength of plasma TVs, and 3D-ready plasmas like the PNC7000 take that to a whole new level. Plus, Samsung's 3D-ready plasmas offer more screen for your money than their 3D-ready LCDs. If you saw Avatar, you know how much 3D adds to the movie experience. You feel more a part of the on-screen action, and characters actually seem more real. When you combine the PN58C7000 with a 3D video source and Samsung's 3D glasses (sold separately), you can enjoy hyper-realistic viewing right in your living room.


Features:

How 3D TV works
3D technology creates the illusion of depth in a two-dimensional image by presenting a slightly different view to each eye. Our eyes and brain do this every day, allowing us to see the world around us in 3D. Samsung's PNC7000 achieves a similar result by using a special plasma panel that can actually display two different versions of a video image, with the video frames alternating at very high speed.

It's not 3D without the glasses...
Samsung's special 3D glasses work hand in glove with the screen to create three-dimensional images. These liquid-crystal "shutter" glasses alternately block out the left or right lens in coordination with the frames flashing on screen. The glasses communicate wirelessly with the PN58C7000 via infrared beams. It sounds complicated, but it works seamlessly, creating an intensely immersive experience for movies, sports, and video games.

...and a source of 3D video
The ultimate 3D viewing experience starts with video material that was filmed or created for 3D. Samsung will soon offer 3D Blu-ray players, and a limited slection of 3D Blu-ray titles will be available by summer. ESPN and DIRECTV%uFFFD plan to launch 3D channels later this year, so true 3D content is on the way. The PNC7000 also has powerful video processing that creates a 3D effect with standard 2D broadcasts, Blu-rays, DVDs and video games.

When you're connected to the Web, there's always something cool to watch
When you connect to your broadband Internet service you can use Samsung's built-in "widgets" to access a variety of free online sites, like YouTube%uFFFD. And you'll love being able to stream titles from your Netflix%uFFFD Instant Queue, and order on-demand movies from Blockbuster%uFFFD and Vudu%uFFFD. You can even use one of the TV's USB ports to plug in Samsung's wireless adapter for convenient media streaming over your wireless network.

8. Sony XBR-52LX900

The Sony BRAVIA XBR-LX900 is a stylish high definition television that's built with advanced technology and design in mind. The XBR LX900 HDTV with a LED backlit LCD display has an OptiContrast panel. With a clear surface treatment and resin sheet incorporated between the display panel and glass plate, the unique feature helps to minimize glare. The HDTV also has integrated 3D functionality, BRAVIA Internet Widgets and integrated Wi-Fi that lets owners access entertainment websites like Amazon Video On Demand and YouTube.


Description:


The full HD 1080p (1920 x 1080) models feature Edge LED backlight, Sony's new Monolithic Design and Motionflow%u2122 PRO 240Hz motion compensation technology, which helps produces smooth images in fast moving content such as sport and action movies. Sony's 240Hz technology also reduces the mixing of images of 3D content assigned to the left and right eyes, while the BRAVIA Engine%u2122 3 full digital video processor uses a collection of enhanced algorithms to significantly reduce noise, enhance overall image detail, and optimize contrast so every scene produces sharp, vibrant, life-like images.

The LX900 models also feature Sony's new OptiContrast panel. Designed with a clear surface treatment and a resin sheet sandwiched between the LCD display panel and glass plate, the OptiContrast panel minimizes the reflection and refraction of external and internal light producing deeper images with superior black levels even in bright rooms.

The models include integrated Wi-Fi for an easy connection to broadband home networks. Once connected, users can access thousands of streaming movies, videos, music and more from Netflix, Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube, Slacker Internet Radio, Pandora, NPR, Sony Pictures, Sony Music, and over 25 total providers through the Sony BRAVIA Internet Video platform.

Also, with the touch of a button, users can access the latest in news, weather, USA Today sports, Yahoo Finance, Twitter, Flickr photos, and FrameChannel through small applications called BRAVIA Internet Widgets. The widgets can be uniquely positioned anywhere on the TV screen for a custom viewing experience.

The models also feature playback of personal content including digital pictures, video, and music through USB and DLNA certified network connections.


Another new feature is Sony's Intelligent Presence Sensor with face detection. The sensor detects if you've stepped away from the TV or are not watching the screen and automatically dims the backlight. After an extended period, the TV will turn off if no one has re-entered the viewing area. Additionally, the Intelligent Presence Sensor's newly added Position Control feature detects a user's viewing position to deliver optimized video/sound balance, while the Distance Alert feature helps to keep small children at an eye-friendly distance.

Mitsubishi's 837 Series are for customers who value performance above all else by offering an extensive list of features designed to give you complete freedom to fine tune your set.

Features:

1080p High-Definition DLP Display System
The WD-65837 uses Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing technology for rear-projection TVs to create the picture you see on screen. All images are displayed at 1080p, and the TV uses Plush 1080p 5G to convert lower-resolution signals to 1080p for display. It'll also accept 1080p original signals and maintain them at 1080p through all processing until displayed.

3D Ready
All Mitsubishi 1080p DLP HDTVs are 3D Ready. This feature lets you experience the new 3D technologies applied to many recent movies and video games. Immerse yourself in your favorite video game, movie, or sporting event displayed in 3D.

16:9 Widescreen Picture Format
Enjoy a full theatrical experience in the comfort of your home. View pictures as film directors intended them. Digital TV broadcasts, DVDs and newer video game consoles support this widescreen format.

Integrated HDTV Tuner
The WD-65837 features an internal HDTV tuner able to receive both over-the-air HDTV broadcasts (received via an antenna) and non-scrambled digital cable broadcasts, including non-scrambled HDTV cable programming.

Smooth 120Hz
Mitsubishi's Smooth 120Hz Film Motion takes 120Hz technology to the next level with dejudder for film originated content. In the conversion of film-to-video for display, 24Hz artifacts can be seen in slow panning scenes. Smooth 120Hz Film Motion eliminates this artifact for smooth, crisp, fast and slow action content.

6-Color Processor
Mitsubishi's 6-Color Processor processes and produces images with six different colors--instead of the traditional three--to display a wider range of colors, brighter colors and whiter whites.

PerfectColor
PerfectColor replaces the traditional "tint" control on TVs, giving users far more control over their on-screen picture. Adjust six colors independently to dial in the perfect picture. In addition, PerfectTint sliders allow you to adjust six hues for the current image source.

x.v.Color
x.v.Color is the new standard in high-definition color, which delivers up to 80 percent more color than standard HDTV for breathtaking realism and vivid, natural colors.

USB Input
The WD-65837 can read photo or music files from a USB device. Enjoy your favorite MP3/WMA music files, your JPEG images, or combine the two in a music-accompanied slide show. The TV can also display input from a camera through the Y/VIDEO port.

High-Definition Video Inputs

Three Component Video Inputs.
Also called Y/Pb/Pr inputs, these inputs receive standard analog video formats of 480i, 480p, 720p, and 1080i high-definition signals. This provides a high level of flexibility when connecting DVD players/recorders, cable boxes, and satellite receivers.

Four HDMI Inputs.
These inputs accept digital 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, and 1080p video signals plus PCM digital stereo signals. The HDMI inputs can also accept a variety of PC signals and resolutions. These inputs support HDMI 1.3 Deep Color (up to 36 bits) and the x.v.Color extended color gamut. Used with an adapter, these HDMI inputs also accept compatible digital DVI video signals. HDMI inputs provide additional high-performance, high-definition connections for maximum flexibility in your choice of home theater products. The HDMI inputs are HDCP copy-protection compatible.

Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing
Easy Connect Auto Input Sensing automatically recognizes when you plug in a device and prompts you to assign a name to it. The TV ignores any unused inputs, so the result is an uncluttered menu where you can easily find and select connected devices by name.

Home-Theater Control 

4 HDMI Control

HDMI devices with Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) capabilities may be compatible with the TV's HDMI Control feature. Compatible devices can receive control signals through the HDMI connection, allowing the TV's remote control to operate some functions of these devices.

%uNet Command with IR Learning
Mitsubishi's 837 Series offers a new level of networking that seamlessly integrates selected older A/V products with new and future digital products. Net Command supports IR (infrared) control of products such as VCRs, DVD players, cable boxes, and satellite receivers. Net Command can "learn" remote control signals directly from many devices, allowing you to create a customized NetCommand-controlled home theater system. The necessary IR emitter cables are available for purchase separately from Mitsubishi.

ENERGY STAR Compliance
This TV meets ENERGY STAR efficiency standards in all operating modes.

Features:

3D enabled

The third dimension. It's the future of HD home theater viewing . . and it's here. With a C7000 series LED HDTV from Samsung, you're ready for it. As a part of the C7000 series, the 46" C7000 LED LCD HDTV sports integrated 3D-capable technology that, when combined with a 3D video source and 3D Active Glasses (sold separately), gives you the ability to experience three-dimensional viewing right in your living room. Samsung's 3D technology uses the same principles upon which human sight is based to achieve a 3D effect in the home theater. By themselves, each human eye sees only two dimensions. However, because our eyes are set slightly apart, each sees an object or scene from a slightly different angle. And when the brain processes the images seen by each eye into a single image, we are able to perceive depth in what we are seeing. Add depth to the height and width (2D) seen by each single eye, and ta-da: 3D! For its part, a Samsung C7000 series panel actually shows two different versions of a movie on the screen at the same time (alternating frames from each at extremely high speeds). What makes the two versions different is that they were filmed from slightly different angles. Now, 3D

Active Glasses communicate wirelessly with the C7000 HDTV.
Using special liquid-crystal lenses, the 3D glasses alternately block out the left or right lens in coordination with the frames flashing on-screen. Accordingly, the right eye sees only the "version" of the movie intended for the right eye, and the left eye only sees its version. Just as with normal human sight, the brain combines the two versions into one, and voil, you see 3D. Three cheers!

240Hz panel

So far, we've spent quite a chunk of time hailing the C7000's advanced viewing features. But equally as impressive as 3D viewing capability is this C7000 series HDTV's panel itself. Naturally, this Samsung HDTV delivers a Full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution, compatible with the highest resolution video sources available. Further, 240Hz Clear Motion technology serves up exceptionally clear, smooth, and lifelike on-screen motion, even when watching high-speed sports or action-movie sequences. And we haven't even mentioned that this is an LED LCD HDTV. Using edge-lit LED backlighting, the C7000 is not only able to deliver enhanced color purity and staggering black levels (the hallmarks of lifelike detail), but it is also able to achieve an incredibly thin panel only 1.0" thick! Finally, Ultra Clear Panel technology and a Wide Color Enhancer team up to bring crisp details, natural skin tones, excellent shadow detail, and vibrant colors to your home HD viewing experience.

Skype . . . Internet@TV widgets

For a couple of years now, the folks at Samsung have been leading the way with internet-capable HDTV design. And, well, with the C7000 series, it's possible that they might just have outdone themselves . . . again. Alone, the C7000's rear-panel ethernet port might seem pretty innocent. But, when combined with innovative Samusung technologies, it opens up a dazzling interactive experience. First, Internet@TV delivers access to a wide range on online features via internet widgets and Samsung Apps: Check the weather at AccuWeather.com. Keep up on breaking news at The Associated Press. Manage your Netflix queue. Tweet on Twitter. Stream custom radio from Pandora. And this is just the beginning. Second, the C7000 series introduces built-in Skype compatibility. In case you haven't heard, Skype in an online, IP-based, picture-in-picture way to make video calls via the internet. The basic service is totally free; all you need is a headphone/microphone headset. Now you can video chat with other Skype users around the world using a 46" HDTV!

Connections

Yes, it certainly is a big deal that the C7000 LED HDTV offers four HDMI inputs. That's the most advanced, single-cable video and audio connection available . . . times four. In other words, you're equipped to connect up to four HD-capable devices to this C7000 series panel. And yes, the rear-panel ethernet port does deliver unprecedented online interactivity. But when it comes to connections, the C7000 raises the bar even further. First, AllShare technology allows you to sync the C7000 up with your home network either via ethernet or wirelessly (with the separate 2010 LinkStick). Once connected, you're free to stream audio and video from your PC directly to the C7000 using the remote control. Second, with ConnectShare Movie technology, you can connect a thumbdrive or digital camera to one of the C7000's two USB ports, and then use a simple on-screen interface to access video, music, or photos stored on the connected device. Finally, no matter your source of audio or video Blu-ray player, satellite, or PC BD Wise technology automatically adjusts all components for the best picture and sound quality.

57% more efficient

Even with all of the innovative functionalities added to the C7000 series, Samsung has maintained the energy-efficient performance for which their LED HDTVs are known. In fact, they've made them even more efficient. Not only does the C7000 satisfy the U.S. government's ENERGY STAR 4.0 qualifications the latest for display devices but it surpasses those requirements by a whopping 57%. Now, naturally the LED backlight is much more efficient than the CCFL backlights used in standard LCD HDTVs. But when it comes to the C7000 series, there's more to the story. You see, the C7000 features a built-in Light Sensor that measures levels of ambient light in your viewing area and then automatically adjusts the panel's brightness for optimal viewing. Because the Light Sensor ensures that brightness levels never exceed what is necessary for ideal viewing, energy use is minimized, especially when viewing in low-light areas.

And for the gamers

The folks at Samsung give a nod to gamers with the C7000 series. The C7000's Game Mode enhances dark areas, sharpens the picture, accelerates image processing, and enhances audio output. In other words, the C7000's performance can be optimized for the special needs of gaming content at the touch of a button.

The advanced connectivity of HDMI

Bringing you the absolute best in connectivity, Samsung's C7000 features four HDMI inputs. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both uncompressed high-definition (HD) video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in all HD formats including 720p, 1080i and even 1080p. Your incoming media content comes in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, and with that in mind, HDMI systems automatically configure to display that content in the most effective format. Since HDMI carries all channels on video and audio, there is only one cable to plug into any HDMI-enabled source and display device. No more complicated cable set-up when installing your home theater system, and no more ugly cable mess behind your components. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on this single cable. Also, HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI. (Please note that a physical adapter, sold separately, is needed to make the conversion from HDMI to DVI.)
