Key Features

HDMI - High Definition Multimedia Interface is the next generation of DVI. It includes the DVI digital video signal, and multi-channel digital audio signals on a single cable.

Toshiba PixelPure AT (Adaptive Technology) Digital Video Processing - Toshiba's next-generation PixelPure video processing includes new Adaptive Technology. This advanced video processing constantly monitors changes in signal quality, content, and movement to enhance Sharpness, Contrast, and Color reproduction. PixelPure AT once again proves that processing makes the picture, and Toshiba continues to provide the most advanced processing technology for the best possible picture quality on all digital displays.

HD Dynamic Contrast - This feature increases contrast and color saturation to create deep, rich images. The intelligent circuitry analyzes both the dark and bright areas of the picture, and separately optimizes the dynamic range in each area of the picture. Picture enhancements include Luminance transient improvement, Green Enhancement, and Blue Stretch. This circuit is only active in Sports Mode, and is now avaliable with all video signals, including 1080i. Thanks to HD Dynamic Contrast, the 42DPC85 has a sharper, deeper image with rich colors and a more life-like image. The HD Dynamic Contrast feature continually analyzes picture information and enhances those parts of the picture with the most detailed information

SRS WOW - SRS WOW technology takes the performance of the television's existing speakers to a whole new level, offering superior sound quality with no additional peakers required, SRS WOW consists of three separate sound expanding systems, which work together to extract "buried" highs and lows. The three systems are, SRS 3D, TruBass, and FOCUS. SRS 3D creates a three dimensional sound field from just two speakers, thus giving the listener the feeling of hearing a multi speaker surround sound system. TruBass produces a powerful, yet low, frequency sound by utilizing a process called psychoacoustics. From only two small speakers, TruBass will give the effect of an expensive sub bass woofer that will leave the listener amazed by the quality of the sound. FOCUS was added to direct the energy from the speakers of the television set in a vertical direction up towards the listener's ears. The addition of FOCUS means that there is virtually no loss of sound from the speaker's position on the bottom panel near the floor, which achieves a clear, undistorted range of audio.

SoundStrip Speaker System - Toshiba's bottom-mounted SoundStrip Speaker System reduces the TV's width while still pumping out potent sound.

4-Illuminated Universal Remote Control - The 42DPC85's newly designed remote control is a Cinema Series advantage built around the ergonomics of the human hand. This contoured unit is a very user-friendly remote device. Designed to cater to the most discerning home theater enthusiast, it can perform most functions on up to sfour separate audio/video components. The remote comes preprogrammed for most A/V gear, so setup is a breeze. In addition, every button is back-lit, making it a joy to use in dimly lit home theater rooms.

Tri-Lingual Color Icon On-Screen Display - All TV functions can be easily operated using the remote control to access Toshiba's advanced on-screen display. This full-featured system can be operated in English, French or Spanish. By using the four cursor buttons on the remote control, your favorite features or settings are only a click away.

Off/Sleep Timer - The Sleep Timer allows you to fall asleep watching TV and have the TV turn itself off up to three hours later (in 10-minute intervals).
