FrontRunners: The Big Picture
Plasma approximates the silver screen with LG Electronics’ (www.lgusa.com, 800. 243.0000) new 71-inch MW-71PY10, the largest, and one of the most technologically advanced, plasma HDTVs on the market. Scheduled at press time to be released this spring, the television accommodates all of the most demanding high-definition signals in their pure, digital forms, and displays them in sharp, 1920 x 1080p-resolution images. The large screen also delivers clear pictures from standard sources, thanks to LG’s XD Engine video processing technology, which uses advanced algorithms to upgrade low-resolution signals so that they fit the panel’s high-resolution monitor. All of this technology comes inside a 4-inch-thick cabinet at a cost of $75,000.
