Please Note:  For Local Pick Up Only!


Advanced Scan Converter
The PFM-500A2W is equipped with an advanced scan converter, which includes variable and offset phase sampling and Four-Line Vertical Interpolation technologies. As such, it performs image conversion more accurately than is possible with conventional scanning methods.
This scan converter can intelligently reproduce a wide range of existing video signals (NTSC, PAL, HDTV) and computer signals with horizontal frequencies ranging from 15.6 to 100.0 kHz.
Four-Line Vertical Interpolation reproduces optimum images from various computer signals by utilizing the data of four lines from the original signal to generate each interpolated line

Wide viewing angle
There is a wide viewing angle of 160 degrees in all directions. The clear pixel-by-pixel images appeal to large audiences in many different applications.

Resistance to magnetic influence
Flat panel monitors can be installed in areas where the effects of magnetic field are prevalent, without experiencing interference such as color uniformity drift. These effects are caused by equipment employing magnets such as motors or speakers, or high-tension electrical wires. Unlike conventional CRTs, flat panels are free from such disturbances.
