mitsubishi-lt46249For several years running, Mitsubishi’s Unisen series HDTVs have been redefining the way you think about TV audio. Now, with the emergence of a Diamond-series Unisen panel, they’re taking your audio experience even further.

HDTVs today usually feature a built-in two-way, two-channel speaker system so that you can at least hear the audio that accompanies your video picture. Mitsubishi’s LT-46249, on the other hand, gives you the opportunity to experience your HDTV’s audio thanks to an 18-speaker, 5.1-channel, built-in audio speaker.

Mounted along the bottom edge of the LT-46249’s bezel, the integrated soundbar delivers an encompassing five-channel surround sound effect by employing 18 individual drivers?—?the sixteen 2W drivers found on other Unisen panels, plus two additional 10W drivers.

The advanced design and directivity patterns of this speaker arrangement let you experience home theater surround sound without additional obtrusive speakers and cables. Dolby Digital and Dolby Pro Logic processing fuel this impressive, innovative HDTV audio system, whose low-frequency reproduction you can easily enhance by using the built-in variable subwoofer preout to hook up your powered subwoofer. The LT-46249 even includes a calibration microphone that lets you customize the soundbar’s performance for your listening and viewing area.

What’s even better about the LT-46249 is its integration with Vudu. Offering 2,200 HD titles and over 16,000 movie titles overall, Vudu brings you the most extensive on-demand HD video library available today. Using the LT-46249’s built-in ethernet port, you can stream video directly from the internet to your Full HD 1080p LCD panel. Further, using a free update to be available in October 2009, the LT-46249’s ethernet connectivity brings you access to other internet services like YouTube, Flickr, Picassa, and Pandora. So all you’ll need now is an existing broadband internet connection, and of course, extra cash to pay for your selected Vudu titles.

Light-hold devices like DLP, LCD, and plasma HDTVs all have some degree of motion blurring in fast-moving images or videos. The LT-46249 LCD from Mitsubishi was designed with enhanced Smooth240Hz technology, this LCD panel displays more fluid and natural fast-moving images using a sophisticated combination of 120Hz processing and advanced backlight scanning. Additionally, an UltraThin Frame design minimizes the size of the bezel so that the LT-46249 becomes a window onto the world of HD.

Across the board, Mitsubishi’s Unisen LCD HDTVs are for video enthusiasts who want a true home theater experience. If you want detailed, lifelike video and five-channel surround sound, then this set is just right for you.

As the pinnacle of Mitsubishi’s Unisen panels, the Diamond-series LT-249 HDTVs are for those videophiles who seek advanced home theater, customized to their specific viewing preferences. As far as detailed, lifelike video goes, the LT-46249’s 46″ LCD screen and full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution are just the beginning.

PerfectTint technology combines with PerfectColor and Deep Color/x.v.Color support to serve up a vivid, life-like level of detail and color. For a video experience customized to your personal tastes, the LT-46249 couples ISFccc-certified video calibration with an Advanced Video Calibration Mode. Further, while an integrated USB media port makes it possible to attach USB flash-memory devices for viewing of your latest digital photos, a fourth HDMI input expands your HD connectivity options. Finally, an ENERGY STAR 3.0 qualification highlights that this DLP HDTV meets strict U.S. government criteria for energy efficiency, both in standby mode and in operation.

The LT-46249’s exclusive Video Noise Reduction uses advanced algorithms to better identify video noise from fine detail and correct the signal rather than distort it. Video noise is caused by distortions in the video signal that make the picture look grainy or snowy. As signal resolutions improve with the introduction of DVD, digital cable/ satellite and HDTV, the loss of sharpness produced by most noise reduction circuits becomes more noticeable. Mitsubishi’s advanced Video Noise Reduction corrects the image in four dimensions: horizontally, vertically, within each frame, and across multiple frames to provide an image that is crystal clear and extraordinarily detailed.

Thanks to a front USB port, you can also connect a USB thumb drive or USB Card Reader to the LT-46249 and use the 46″ screen as a giant photo album. You can even use the USB input to listen to digital music files over the LT-46249’s 18-speaker sound bar.

Bringing you the absolute best in connectivity, Mitsubishi’s LT-46249 features four HDMI connections. HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both uncompressed high-definition (HD) video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in all HD formats including 720p, 1080i and even 1080p.

Your incoming media content comes in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, and with that in mind, HDMI systems automatically configure to display that content in the most effective format. Since HDMI carries all channels on video and audio, there is only one cable to plug into any HDMI-enabled source and display device.

No more complicated cable set-up when installing your home theater system, and no more ugly cable mess behind your components. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on this single cable. Also, HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI.
