  • Support for HD input and progressive input resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,024;
  • A "Color Control Device" for independent control over yellows;
  • Automatic gamma adjustment;
  • 3D digital noise reduction; and
  • Support for both 4:3 and 16:9 aspect ratios.

AV ports include 5BNC, DVI-D, component (RCA), RGB in and out (15-pin mini D-sub), S-video, composite video (RCA), and stereo audio minijacks in and out. Control and networking ports include USB and RS-232, as well as an optional RJ-45 port.
