Sony KE32TS2 with 32-inch 16:9 Plasma WEGA, Contrast Ratio (1000:1), an HDTV Monitor, a Built-In NTSC TV Tuner, 852 x 1024 Resolution
Sony's 2nd-generation KE-32TS2 plasma TV combines elegant styling with incredible performance, versatility, and usability. This is a completely integrated plug-and-play TV - it includes an NTSC (analog) tuner, stereo speakers, and a tabletop stand for a totally sleek, slim look. You can actually have this beautiful, high-tech flat-panel TV out of the box and ready to watch in minutes! The KE-32TS2's widescreen design is "picture perfect" for DVD movies and HDTV programs. Non-HD signals get a big boost in quality from Sony's latest video upconversion circuitry. As a final step, Sony's Digital Pixel Generator System "scales" (converts) signals from all of your video sources so that they precisely match the panel's 852 x 1024-pixel resolution for the best possible picture at all times. This model's outstanding brightness, clarity and contrast is due in part to cutting edge ALiS panel technology. ALiS (Alternate Lighting of Surfaces) panels work in a way that's similar to interlaced-scan tube-type TVs. Typical plasma panels have a strip of electrodes for each horizontal line of plasma cells, while ALiS panels share an electrode strip between two lines of cells. These lines switch on and off rapidly 60 times per second, and at any given instant only half the panel's pixels are turned on. Because there is less screen "real estate" taken up by electrode strips, there's more phosphor area to be illuminated, and as a result, ALiS panels provide an exceptionally clear, bright image. Other ALiS benefits include high-efficiency - they require only half the voltage of conventional plasma drive systems - and extended panel life. To accommodate a wide variety of video sources, you'll find four A/V inputs including composite, S-video, component video, and DVI connections. To help you make the most of the TV's widescreen design (and to reduce the chance of image burn-in), Sony included several picture display options. By stretching and/or zooming a conventional squarish 4: 3 program, you can make it fill up this panel's wide screen. Other image-adjustment options include color temperature control, and five picture presets tailored for viewing conditions ranging from watching a ballgame in bright daytime lighting to savoring a movie at night with the lights turned low.
