Las Vegas, NV (Jan 5, 2006) - BenQ, a leading manufacturer of digital lifestyle devices, today announced the first member of its Prestige Line (PL) Series line of high-performance LCD TVs with a new 42-inch model, the PL4271. Affordably priced and geared toward consumers who demand a higher standard of performance, the PL4271 is HDTV compatible (480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i), and provides a high contrast ratio (1000:1), high resolution, and high-speed performance with an 8-millisecond response time.
The PL4271 features BenQ’s proprietary “Senseye®” digital-enhancement technology that automatically and dynamically improves image quality, adjusts brightness and darkness levels, performs color mapping procedures, and reduces jagged edges on images. Users select a preset mode of operation that corresponds to the content that they are viewing (e.g., Cinema, Dynamic, Personal and Standard), and Senseye adjusts contrast, color and sharpness settings, which significantly enhances the display of graphics-intensive applications such as gaming, entertainment and professional multimedia presentations.
For extraordinary high-definition (HD) picture quality, the PL4271 uses Motion Adaptive de-interlacing, one of the most advanced forms of de-interlacing technology available, which processes each pixel independently, resulting in the highest quality image possible.
The PL4271 provides a superior sound system via D2Audio’s intelligent digital amplifier that performs sound optimization and correction on the audio signals that it produces, resulting is a high quality and reliable, repeatable performance, equivalent to top analog amplifiers.
