Sony's PFM-42V1 is a wide screen 42-inch AC-type plasma display, perfect for a wide variety of applications, including information booths, trade shows, video production, HDTV display, home theaters, board rooms, and more. It has a 852 x 480 maximum resolution, which combines with a multi-layer, AR-coated screen, 1.08 mm dot pitch, and 16.8 million colors to provide accurate, easy-to-read onscreen images. The widescreen 16:9 (full), wide zoom (expanded 4:3), letter box, and standard 4:3 display settings give you several aspect ratios to choose from.
Onscreen menus offer access to a variety of display settings, and you can choose between six display languages (English, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese). The 15-pin D-Sub, RGB, composite video, BNC, 4-pin Mini DIN, and DVI input connectors accept a wide range of input signals including SDTV, HDTV, DVI and RGB computer signals as well as NTSC (North America), PAL (Europe), SECAM (South America), NTSC4.43, PAL60, PAL-N PAL-M, and PAL-N. The AC 100 to 240 V, 50/60 Hz power supply consumes about 360 W of power during operation, while the internal 7W audio amplifier drives the optional audio speakers. The PFM-42V1 is also compatible with PC and Mac operating systems and is backed by a one year limited warranty.
