From the Manufacturer (April 7, 2009)
With picture performance that outpaces today's smaller flat panels, Mitsubishi's 73-inch WD-73737 offers a larger than life, intensely vivid viewing experience. In screen sizes ranging from 60" to 82", 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.
1080p High-Definition DLP Display System
The WD-73737 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.
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-73737 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.
Ultra-thin frame means more screen in less space.

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

| ||With standard-definition TVs, the rule used to be that viewers would feel comfortable watching a set from a distance of 3 to 6 times the screen size in inches. With HDTV, the resolution is so much better that you can sit closer to a larger TV without noticing the pixels. So with HDTVs, the rule tends to be you can sit anywhere from 1.5 to 3 times the screen size (in inches) for the best experience. If you know the size of the room you have already, where you want to sit, and where your new HDTV should go once you get it, you can figure out the size HDTV you should get. |
