difference between 1080 & 720

answer 1
1080i and 720p are both current BROADCAST resolutions which were introduced at the same time when HIGH DEFINITION TELEVISION was introduced to the United States. They are both great formats and each one has its merit.

1080i is often considered to be better, due to its greater resolution but this is subjective. 720p often looks as good as 1080i and you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

1080i is an interlaced format which means that the odd lines are written first then the even ones are filled in afterward.1080i can seem to have more detail,and is more suited to programs which have slow moving action. interlacing usually has certain inherent artifacts ,such as jagged edges and flickering which are sometimes noticeable when the camera is panning.

720p is a progressive format , which means that all of the lines are written at once and in succession, (one right after the other).Progressive scanning often produces a smoother, clearer, more watchable image, and depending on your television, there may be no perceivable loss of detail, unless you are one who insists on splitting hairs.720p is often used by networks which are sports oriented,because it works well with programs which contain a lot of fast action, although many networks may also have chosen it based on equipment cost at the beginning of the HDTV roll out.

The newest resolution is 1080p, which combines the attributes of 1080i and 720p, by giving you the greater perceived detail of 1080i, along with the smoothness and consistency of 720p.There is a catch though. In most cases, unless your screen is larger than 50" you may not see a difference in clarity. Any perceived difference is usually due to video settings and or contrast ratio.Samsung's current plasma's are rated as "Mega Contrast" which mega means 1,000,000.

A word of advice, don't agonize over resolutions. I currently own a PN42B450 Samsung plasma which happens to be 720p and it looks great, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference between my plasma and a 1080p version.

Plasmas are great for any gaming! They do need some extra care though. To prevent burn-in, we added the Pixel Shift feature which shifts the pixels up or down, left or right to help prevent static image retention. Also you can help the pixel shift system work by making sure a static image is not on the screen for too long.

Hm, that is a bit odd. You have the setting on teh TV correct. I would say do into your cable box and make sure the settings are for it to display the content on normal mode, and not stretched or even wide screen. On normal, you should get teh picture to the TV the way it was supposed to be displayed with out the cable box modifying the picture.

Question

Headphone capability?

On the Specifications tab, under "Input Output", there is an entry for "Headphone" with a value of "Yes".

What does this refer to? My tv does NOT seem to have an audio output jack for headphones, although I would very much like this capability.

Can someone please clarify the meaning of the "Headphone" entry and if it is possible to connect headphones to this tv?

I'm sorry for the confusion. The PN50B450 does not actually offer a headphone jack. Even though you can not directly hook headphones to the unit, you can still indirectly connect them. In order to hear out of headphones, you would need to connect the headphones via an RCA to 3.5mm female connector. Even then, since the RCA audio outputs on this unit is a fixed pass through type of connection, you would need some sort of intermediary device to control the volume, since the TV doe not have control of the volume coming out of the analogue and digital audio outputs.

Question

What happens when the input signal is 1080p ?

I have hooked up my PS3 to this tv (PN50b450) using HDMI. I let the PS3 automatically find the optimal resolution and it started displaying 1080p !! The top left corner of the TV displays 1920x1080 @ 60hz. When I switch to cable STB, it displays 1920x1080i @ 60hz.

Now, is this expected ? is 1080p input being downscaled to 720p ? should I change my PS3 to output 720p instead ? i dont think i see any loss or change in video quality when I set ps3 to ouput 720p or 1080p. My question is whether the TV natively supports 1080p or it's just downscaling it into 720p. Also, will this damage or deteriorate the lifetime of the TV ? Also, should i choose 1080i or 720p in the cable STB ?

If you are connecting the PS3 via HDMI, the PS3 will automatically detect what resolutions are supported by the TV. Since the TV will natively and only support 720p/1080i, 1080p will not be able to be displayed. If you keep your PS3 on 1080p though, the unit will downscale the signal so it can be displayed on the screen. Will be no damage to the TV since the TV is made to be able to display both 720p and 1080i.

Question

How does pixel shift (and other anti-burn in technology) work?

I've read about calibrating plasma sets and many mention to not use the 4:3 setting with grey or black sides to avoid a line between the side and the picture. Is this something I should not need to worry about anymore? I'd prefer not to watch my older DVDs stretched out or zoomed in. Is the pixel shifting happening as I watch television and completely transparent to me? Does anything happen when the television is off to prevent burn in?

Although officially, none of the Samsung Plasmas require a break-in period or suffer from burn-in, I would still suggest you follow some simple steps to ensure the long life of your unit. Make sure that your anti-burn-in features, such as the pixelshift (which shifts the pixels a predetermined distance to "refresh" the pixels with a different image) and scrolling functions (which allows for the mass reset of all the pixels on the screen at once), are active and working properly. Also make sure that you do not leave a static image on the screen for too long. With these features, you should be able to view your 4:3 content with out much worry.

All Samsung TV’s come with a Shop Mode or Store Demo function. Designed for retailers who need a way to reset demo TVs to their factory settings automatically, these functions return a TV to its factory settings every 20 minutes or after the TV is powered off.

If your TV does not retain your settings, most likely it is in Shop Mode or Store Demo Mode.
To turn off Shop Mode, follow these steps:

1. Press the Vol + button on your TV.
2. While your TV screen displays the volume level, immediately press and hold the MENU button on the TV for seven seconds.
3. The word Dynamic appears in the middle of the screen momentarily.
4. Your TV should no longer be in Shop Mode. If your TV continues to return to the default mode, please make a service request at http://www.samsung.com/us/support/o....
