Features that set the PFM-32C1 flat-panel monitor apart include exclusive pixel-by-pixel conversion system, which automatically identifies the characteristics (film, video or both), and resolution (480i
, 480p, 720p, or 1080i) of the video content for accurate, sharp image reproduction.
The video-enhanced projector is HDTV compatible, automatically resizing 1080i and 720p images for 16:9 wide-aspect display; 480p, 480i
and 625i component video signals and S-Video can also be displayed in either 4:3 or 16:9.
The set displays in 1080i and also upgrades 720p, 480p and 480i
The Wii U is to include Near FIeld Communication and features video outputs of 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i
. A multi-core microprocessor, allegedly a custom 45nm chip with embedded DRAM, will power the device (http://wiiuspecs.com/specs/) according to WiiUSpecs.com .
For example, when an SD signal is input, the monitor reproduces the image at picture sizes of 646x487 pixels in 480i
and 480p, and 768x540 pixels in 575i and 576p.
From a broadcast format standpoint, using the HD-SDI card, Digital Rapids says the TouchStream will support video resolutions of 1080i, 1080p, and 720p in HD formats, as well as the 480i
(NTSC) and 576i (PAL) formats for standard-definition "HD" signals.
The MX-50X3 features a high brightness output of 900 cd/m2 and supports 480i
, 480p, 720p, 1080i SDTV/EDTV/HDTV, and NTSC.
It is appropriate for a variety of OEM monitor and packaged flat panel display applications including 1080I, 1080P, 1035I, 720P, 480I
and 480P HDTV formats.
Both these new standards offer about four times the resolution of the older 480i
. Of course, 1080 is not four times 480, but remember we are dealing with improvement in both the vertical and horizontal resolution.
