Screen Format 16:9 Image ratio (width/height). There are 2 formats. The traditional 4:3 format and the 16:9 format. The 4:3 format can be used for all programmes whereas the 16:9 is more specifically designed for use in home cinema systems.
Screen size 50" (127 cm) The size of the screen is measured diagonally and often shown in inches (1 inch equals 2.54cm). The higher this value, the larger the screen. For maximum comfort, the distance between the user and the television should be 3 times the diagonal size of the screen.
Brightness (in cd/m²) 1300 Brightness is measured in cd/m² and it corresponds to the brilliance of white tones. The higher this value, the brighter and more natural the image.
Contrast 15,000 Contrast is the difference between the brightest white tone and darkest black tone on the LCD screen. A contrast rate of 1500:1 for example indicates that the clearest image is 1,500 times brighter than the darkest. The higher this value, the higher the contrast rate.
Response time (in ms) The response time of a plasma screen is practically zero. It is only limited by the speed of the video processor. The response time is the time required (in milliseconds) for the pixels which compose the screen, to switch from one colour to the other. The lower this time, the clearer and sharper the image. A slow response time provokes an afterglow effect (light lag) in quick scene display. For plasma screens, the value of the response time is insignificant as it is limited by the speed of the video processor.
Resolution (horizontal x vertical - in pixels) 1366 x 768 The resolution indicates the number of pixels that make up the screen, both horizontally and vertically. The higher this number of pixels, the finer and clearer the image.
Viewing angle (horizontal/vertical - in°) 160 The viewing angle (in degrees) determines the maximum angle from which the image on the screen can be seen correctly. The higher this value, the further away you can be to view the screen's image correctly.
Audio Audio Power 2 x 10 W Determined in Watts, the sound power delivered by the speakers of your screen.
Noise reduction No Whether its sound or images, noise constitutes a parasite signal that reduces the quality of the final signal. On the screen, it is present in the form of small luminous granules.

Connectivity Connectivity 2 x HDMi Indicates the range of audio and/or video outputs and inputs available. This is important to note if you wish to build your own system using numerous appliances (DVD player, video recorder, etc)
SCART connectors 2 The scart socket is a wide spread jack that enables you to transmit a video signal in composite, S-video or RVB format as well as an audio signal in both directions. This connectivity is therefore really versatile and allows you to connect a large range of screen accessories.
DVI Input No A DVI input (for a Digital Video Interface)
transmits a digital video signal without using the analogue jack. It thus enables you to transmit signals without losing in quality. Generally speaking, it can be used to connect devices to a computer of DVD compatible player.
HDMI Input 2 The HDMI input (for a High Definiton Multimedia Interface) eventually replaces the scart socket. It allows for the transmission of high quality digital audio/video signals.
PC Input No The PC (VGA) input enables you to connect your computer to your television without needing to use a VGA adapter.
Audio output Headphones socket Indicates the transmission possibilities of a television's audio signal to an external device. The headset socket is the most wide spread and it allows you to enjoy your favourite programmes without disturbing others around you. It is extremely useful for those who have hearing difficulties.
