Samsung's fourth-generation plasma television, the 42-inch SP-P4251, uses the company's proprietary electronic chassis and its latest DNIe picture-enhancement circuitry to deliver outstanding brightness, contrast, and overall picture clarity. Use it for home theater and use it for your PC--it's perfect for both. It comes with a pedestal stand and a pair of built-in NTSC tuners for split-screen and PIP viewing (small, large, double). Built-in analog tuners allow you to connect an analog RF signal cable or antenna directly to the set and watch standard-definition TV right out of the box.
With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the SP-P4251 is a mere 3.4 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.
The set boasts an incredible contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and a brightness rating of 1,000 cd/m2. With every scene, the picture is clear and vivid, capturing and revealing every detail, even in bright light. The set's picture-frame design is finished in luxurious aluminum and acrylic with contrasting tones of sliver and black. The use of these colors and materials help eliminate glare and facilitate comfortable viewing, freeing your eyes to focus only on the picture.
The set's panel construction is calibrated for better performance and greater durability than earlier plasma models--even surpassing the longevity of prior-generation CRT sets, offering a 50,000-hour panel life (viewing time under normal conditions, after which picture deterioration may occur).
Samsung's exclusive Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) combines a Motion Optimizer, Contrast Enhancer, Detail Enhancer, and Color Optimizer to deliver a vivid, lifelike picture. With the Motion Optimizer, fast-moving images are rendered with more natural-looking motion, without blurring or noise. DNIe's Detail Enhancer analyzes video elements to produce sharper detail, clear image separation, and natural edge transition. The Color Optimizer gives colors lifelike realism while making whites more accurate and skin tones more natural. The Contrast Enhancer gives you deeper, richer blacks with greater detail and more natural whites.
In addition to component (Y, Pb, Pr) inputs for an HD set-top box, PC, and DVD player, the set also offers an DVI-HDTV (Digital Visual Interface) jack for the best possible resolution in a direct digital connection. In keeping with the slim profile of the Plasma TV, AV jacks are on the side so that, even after installation, peripherals such as video players, camcorders, and other AV equipment can be easily connected.
Built-in speakers powered by 12 watts per channel means your movies and TV programming will sound great even without a standalone multichannel surround system. Helping out in the surround-effect department, SRS TruSurround XT incorporates these features: TruSurround 6CH Surround Effect, TruBass Virtual Woofer Effect, Dialog Clarity Virtual Center Effect, and WOW Stereo Enhancement.
Wall mounting is optional using Samsung's WMN4240 wall-mount kit.
