- Ten-bit display interface to support today's most advanced flat displays.
- Advanced content-adaptive 3D noise reduction to dramatically decrease the popping and crackling that is especially prevalent on today's LCD TVs.
- Enhanced horizontal and vertical controls that set a new level in sharpness for advanced TVs.
- Programmable LCD overdrive to eliminate the blurring of fast-moving objects that is common to many LCD displays.
- Integrated VBI slicer and V-chip/closed-caption/teletext accelerator to support worldwide TV data and messaging needs.
- Full-screen, 16-bit, bit-mapped OSD powered by a 2D-graphics accelerator to enable beautiful, intuitive, windows-based user interfaces that enhance the functionality of advanced TVs.
