The new "Black Tie" VIZIO SV42LF-42" LCD and SV47LF-47" will bear four HDMI inputs, Full 1080p resolution, 120Hz processing, Motion Estimation Motion Compensation (MEMC), and side access HD Game Port with HDMI.
Both Black Tie models benefit from the inclusion of MEMC (Motion Estimation, Motion Compensation), a breakthrough in video processing that eliminates motion blur in LCD TVs. Using the latest panel technology, 120 frames per second (fps) is generated from regular 50/60Hz broadcast content. MEMC also offers a cutting edge film motion solution that is an important new process for high definition DVDs because it converts film that was originally shot at 24 fps, for proper viewing at a frame rate of 120Hz. MEMC increases the frame rate using complex algorithms to generate additional frames. Since judder and motion blur are more visible on larger screens, such as 32-inch and bigger TVs, the use of MEMC is critical for delivering the best picture performance possible from any video input format.
The new SV42LF and SV47LF will begin shipping in July 2008 with estimated selling prices of $1499 and $1899 respectively.
