Sony's 42-inch 16:9 flat-panel plasma TV comes with everything you need to enjoy quality programming, including a built-in NTSC TV tuner and built-in 9-watts-per-channel stereo speakers. The KE-42TS2 features a high 1,000:1 contrast ratio for deeper blacks and vivid colors and 43 percent improved brightness. You can also connect it to your computer to serve as a monitor.
This TV offers Sony's TruSurround Sound SR 3D Audio processing, which creates the effect of surround sound using only the two built-in speakers. This technology eliminates the need to sit in the "sweet spot" where the audio sounds best, ensuring that any seat in the house is a good one. It also features reverse 3:2 pulldown, which reassembles the frame sequence of your original film-based content from DVDs to more accurately reproduce the original 24-frame-per-second material.
The KE-42TS2 sports a resolution of 1024 x 1024 (1024 dots x 1024 lines), and its built-in NTSC tuner means you may not need any external hardware to watch TV. For precision control, the KE-42TS2 allows you to make color temperature adjustments (to compensate for variations in ambient lighting) and dot phase adjustment when being used as a computer monitor. Its onscreen menus are available in English, Spanish, and French, and it can display closed captioning for the hearing impaired or silent viewing.
A direct DVI (digital video interface) HDTV connection ensures that through digital transmission of HD signals from external devices featuring a DVI connector, images retain their fullest quality. The set also has HD component-video and S-Video inputs for connecting a DVD player or other high-resolution device, an RF input for connecting a VCR, and composite-video inputs for connecting a camcorder or video game. Its audio outputs include a separate subwoofer feed. Audio and video inputs are located on both the front and the back of the TV for easy access.
The KE-42TS2 can be wall mounted with the optional wall bracket, or placed on the floor using the optional floor stand.
