24p True Cinema technology for films as the director intended
With 24p True Cinema technology you can sit back and enjoy movies exactly as the director filmed them. Until now, if you watched a movie at home you'd see it played back slightly faster than at the cinema because standard TVs deliver images at 25 frames a second. Select 24p True Cinema for a more authentic movie experience.
