20" PROLINE Color LCD Monitor/Receiver Product Details
Industry-Leading Response (16 msec) for Moving Pictures
Panasonic's original drive technology combines with advanced liquid crystal materials to achieve 16-msec response, the quickest in the industry. Moving pictures appear quickly, ensuring sharp, clear images with minimal afterimaging. A high response speed (i.e., the time required for the image to switch from Black to white, and then back to Black) reduces the blurring that can occur in moving pictures on conventional LCD monitor-receivers. With Our LCD monitor-receivers, even fast-action
sports scenes are reproduced sharply and crisply with minimal afterimages or color shift.
New LCD AI
Panasonic's original LCD AI technology uses Active Light Control and Active System Control functions to boost brightness and deliver deeper Blacks in scenes with varying contrast. Our New LCD AI goes a step further, using a control method that achieves deeper, more lifelike images in scenes where previous AI systems fell short. The new system uses a process called histogram detection to process the luminance distribution in real-time. Non-linear gamma correction is
then used to boost gradation in the luminance areas containing the greatest number of image elements. The result is greater detail, depth and realism in areas such as the backgrounds
behind movie sub-titles and images around a lit candle in a dark room.
New Pixel Controller
Panasonic's newly developed Pixel Control LSI allows our LCD monitorreceivers to accept a variety of input signals and to reproduce images with superior precision.
^^Aspect Ratio Switching
With Panasonic LCD monitor-receivers, you can choose the aspect ratio — 4:3 or 16:9 (letterbox) — according to the signal input. Some LCD monitor-receivers "squeeze" wide-format DVD movies to make them fit the screen. Our LCD monitor-receivers, on the other hand, show wideformat
images in correct letterbox format with no distortion. Also, the Pixel Controller is compatible with progressive signals, so our LCD monitor-receivers deliver natural, true-to-life images from DVD players and video games with progressive output.
^^Precise Image Display
Some LCD monitor-receivers stretch the image horizontally, displaying Black masks at the top and bottom of the screen and distorting the image in the horizontal direction. Not Panasonic. Thanks to our high-precision pixel control, our LCD monitor-receivers fill the entire screen with the original,
Hammer Drive Sound System (CT-L2000)
The bass reflex port mounted at the monitorreceiver's bottom is shaped using our newly designed Hammer Drive Sound System. In this acoustically advanced system, the bass is reflected off the surface on which the monitor-receiver sits, using the surface's baffle effect to create an expansive sound field and deep, true bass.
