The Sharp LC-40L500M comes with 40" FHD LCD panel, 1080p signal input for the film frames. There are also HDMI terminals for simple digital connection with AV equipments. Other features include selectable multilingual on-screen display, advanced OPC and improvement in quality of analog image.
AutoView monitors room brightness and automatically adjusts the backlight and various picture parameters accordingly. It also continually analyses the image (light and dark pixels), adjusting to maintain maximum contrast.
10-Bit video processing:
10-Bit Video Processing maintains the 10-bit quality of input data quality during video processing which produces over 1 billion colours, resulting in more natural picture creation. 10-Bit Video Processing and panel (right) provides richer, more natural colours.
Exact Scan Mode:
The Exact Scan Mode maximizes the performance of Full HD panels by displaying the full HD image of 1920 x 1080 in REGZA Full HD models. When a HD video signal (1080i/1080p) is input into a conventional WXGA LCD panel (1366 x 768), the signal undergoes a scaling process, which does not output the true quality of the HD 1080i/1080p signal. Consequently, there will only be 92% of the original picture displayed on screen after scaling. With Exact Scan Mode, uncompromising pixel-to-pixel reproduction is created, achieving a true-to-original 1080i/1080p input signal quality.
Ambient Light Sensor:
Naturally, the amount of light in the room affects how you see the picture, but until now TVs have not been able to do anything about this. Thanks to the Ambient Light Sensor, REGZA LCD TVs are able to respond to room lighting conditions, adjusting their contrast to ensure optimum picture quality. This smart television will adapt itself to the amount of light in your room to show the most optimal picture. There is a sensor in the TV that will detect the amount of light in room the tv is in.
3D Colour Management
Most TVs have a colour adjustment knob, but REGZA LCD TVs go much further, enabling you to adjust hue, saturation and colour brightness for each of the six basic colours separately. You can perfectly adjust skin colour or grass colour, for example, without affecting the other colours. 3D Colour Management (right photos) lets you achieve the best possible colour balance.
Enjoy true home theatre experience with the built-in SRS WOW sound system. SRS WOW is a combination of three unique sound field enhancements. SRS 3D creates a wider sound field. SRS TruBass boosts bass frequency perpception for more dramatic low frequency effects. SRS FOCUS enhances the precise localization and clarity of sound based on the standard speaker system.
Intelligent Backlight Control
Precise adjustment of the backlight behind the pixel array is necessary to obtain optimum picture quality. In REGZA LCD TVs, the brightness of the backlight is automatically adjusted according to a sophisticated histogram analysis of the brightness and location of dark portions in each scene. Deeper blacks in dark scenes (where dark portions cover most of the screen) are reproduced by reducing the intensity of the backlight, resulting in greatly improved contrast. Intelligent Backlight Control (right photo) improves the contrast in dark scenes.
