The Micronas chip is basically a video processor that carries out de-interlacing, scaling, processing and frame-rate conversion (I believe).
120Hz will be used for content that was originally captured at 60/30Hz or 24fps (e.g NTSC region content, 1080i60, 480p60 etc etc).
100Hz will be used for content that was captured at 50/25Hz (e.g PAL region content, 576i50).
Hopefully Sharp/Micronas will also carry out proper 24fps film mode detection using 5:5 pull down rather than doubling 3:2 pull down sequence.
Let me also add my voice to those asking that the 37inch screens get some love as well. It would be great to have a 37inch (speaker below screen placement) that has
* 2 (or more) HDMIs (hopefully 1.3)
* full 1080p support (on HDMI, DVI/vga, and component) including 1080p24
* 2500:1 CR
* 4 or 5 colour backlight
It seems Sharp may be focusing the high-end efforts at the 46/52inch level. I would really love a high-end 37inch screen, I'd pay good money for it to. C'mon Sharp, give some D92 love to 37 and 42 as well as 46, 52inch sizes.
