Larger screens in less space with low-profile, modern design
Each 40-inch, 46-inch and 52-inch 1080p LCD flat panel HDTV features Mitsubishi's super Thin Frame with high-quality hidden speakers for more picture in a smaller space than ever before. The Mitsubishi Thin Frame measures about an inch, which is less than half typical LCD flat panel frame widths, resulting in a space savings of over two inches in cabinet width compared to most flat panels. Each 40-inch model is only 37 inches in width and 23.9 inches in height (without base); each 46-inch model is 42.3 inches wide and 26.9 inches tall (without base), and each 52-inch model is 48 inches in width and only 30.4 inches high (without base). The 133 Series is presented in Platinum Black with a Platinum Metallic accent. Both the LT-40134 and the 144 Series products are finished in Platinum Black with a Platinum Black accent. Diamond models are presented in a sleek high-gloss Black Pearl accented by a Diamond Blue light.
More color, for a more colorful image
Mitsubishi takes color to a new level on each member of its 2007-2008 1080p LCD flat panel Lineup with a suite of color features led by x.v.Color support and Mitsubishi's Full Spectrum Color. x.v.Color is the new standard in high definition color. Its wide color palette provides up to 80 percent more color than standard HDTV for breathtaking realism and vivid, natural colors. x.v.Color's wide color palette is complemented by Deep Color on HDMI 1.3 inputs, enabling additional color resolution for smooth transitions between different shades of color.
Mitsubishi's Full Spectrum Color results in 25 percent more color than standard LCD. Reds and yellows become more vivid and there are more available shades of green, cyan and blue, resulting in a more vivid, more realistic image. Additionally, each model comes with Mitsubishi's new Color 4D Noise Reduction system that takes advanced noise reduction technology to the world of color. Color 4D Noise Reduction adds an extra dimension to picture performance by looking horizontally, vertically, within and between frames of video and additionally analyzing color to filter video noise. The result is noise-free images and clean, clear colors.
PerfectColor allows for advanced individual 6-color adjustment. The 134 Series and Diamond models also include PerfecTint where the viewer can fine tune the tint of each of the six colors for each input separately. The end result of Mitsubishi's full suite of unique color features is maximum color control and breathtaking realism with vivid, yet natural color without compromise.
Lots of connections, made easy
All eight models offer superior connectivity and convenience. Mitsubishi leads the industry with three rear HDMI 1.3 inputs, two rear component inputs, and a side component input on every set for maximum HD connectivity with HD cable and satellite boxes, Blu-ray Disc or HD-DVD digital disc sources and the latest in HD gaming consoles. All HDMI inputs are version 1.3 and are additionally SimplayHD-certified to make sure all your HD components work together properly. Additionally, a USB input for up to five mega pixel pictures lets you easily connect a USB thumb drive or USB card reader for easy large screen digital photo viewing in stunning HD clarity.
Mitsubishi's Easy Connect makes set-up and operation simple, the 134 Series, 144 Series and Diamond models add NetCommand® to Easy Connect for a true one-remote control home theater system. NetCommand® combines the control and conventional IR-products and adds HDMI with consumer device control to create an easy-to-use on-screen guide.
Additionally, the 134 Series and Diamond models add a side HDMI 1.3 input for easy access wiring of an HD camcorder or HD gaming console, and even include TV Guide Daily® for additional convenience. Diamond models even go one step further to include an RS232C input for advanced home installation and are Digital Cable Ready with a CableCARD slot for cable box free operation.
