They include Super Resolution technology and FineFrame Technology for smoother frame interpolation and sharper video quality (2D Mode), and THX certification for accurate picture quality. The Split Screen feature allows users to show two pictures at once or watching TV and using the Internet at the same time, while the cinema filter allows for larger color space for improved color fidelity.
The more advanced Pro Cinema 6020UB adds two anamorphic lens modes, ISF calibration, color isolation, a ceiling mount, cable cover and extra lamp for added installation flexibility and customization; and the 5020UBe supports Wireless HD and is equipped with a wireless transmitter to connect up to five devices via HDMI simultaneously.
