A variety of A/V jacks is included for connecting your video sources: composite, S-video, HDTV-ready component video, pure digital DVI, and a standard PC connection. Analog signals like VCR and satellite TV are upconverted by the built-in scaler. Upconverted DVD images look amazingly clear and 3-dimensional. For the ultimate in viewing realism, connect a separate HDTV tuner ? the LTN226W is the only flat-panel TV we sell that displays 720p HDTV broadcasts (like those of ABC and ESPN HD) in their native resolution. And, in addition to top-notch TV viewing, imagine surfing the Web using a 22" high-resolution PC monitor! Samsung's PC Picture-in-Picture feature even lets you view TV and PC images at the same time on the same screen.
The rectangular 16:9 screen is ideal for widescreen material like DVDs and HDTV. The LTN226W also offers an exceptionally wide viewing angle. Many LCD TVs are based on computer monitors, which are intended to be viewed head-on from arm's length. But real-world TV viewing often calls for wide side-to-side-viewing angles and varying distances. This TV's bright, high-contrast images can be enjoyed from nearly any position in your room.
Because LCD TVs don't use a scanning electron gun like conventional tube-type TVs, they offer wide-open possibilities when it comes to placement and use. Here are a few reasons why you should be looking at LCD technology:
Finally, this panel's thin profile (under 3" deep!) and light weight offer a wide array of placement options. A detachable swivel stand gives the TV an elegant look when placed on a tabletop. Wall-mounting hardware is not included ? see "Recommended Accessories" for compatible wall brackets.
