Screen size: This flat-panel LCD television has a 19" screen, measured diagonally from corner to corner. This screen size is perfect for viewing from 3.3' to 6.5' away.
Resolution: A 1440 x 900 resolution means that this television has 900 rows of pixels vertically. The more pixels a TV has, the clearer the images it can produce. The p stands for progressive scan, which means the TV refreshes every row of pixels during each cycle to produce smoother motion and sharper picture than interlaced scan.
NTSC tuner: A built-in NTSC tuner allows you to view standard analog television broadcasts through your television without a separate cable box.
ATSC tuner: The ATSC tuner means that you can enjoy over-the-air digital channels and theater quality audio (with a separate HD antenna) without the need for a digital antenna.
QAM tuner: The QAM tuner gives this TV the capability to receive free in-the-clear digital programming.
Aspect ratio: A width to height pixel ratio of 16:9 means this TV has a widescreen aspect ratio, which accurately recreates the dimensions in which HD programming and many feature films are shot.
Contrast ratio: Contrast ratio describes the difference between the darkest blacks and brightest whites a television is capable of producing. Since there is no industry standard for how contrast ratio is measured, it is only significant within a brand, not between brands. This television has a contrast ratio of 1000:1.
Inputs: Using the 1 available HDMI input, you can experience high definition audio and video up to 720p. The 1 component video input can be used for video resolution up to 720p. Also available are 1 S-video input, 1 composite video input, 1 PC input, and 1 RF input.
MTS Stereo audio: MTS is the multichannel sound standard for NTSC. It allows the encoding of 3 channels of audio within a standard NTSC (analog) video signal to a television. A television that is able to receive MTS Stereo allows you to watch television with stereo sound.
