LG MPEG4 42" Plasma HDTV
LG Electronics introduced MPEG-4 build-in TV LG42px8dc. An internal MPEG-4 AVC (H.264) HD decoder means that this 42-inch TV is the only full HD model that can pick up new HD broadcasts, with higher quality video and audio, as well as broadcasts in the existing PAL, DVB-T or MPEG-2 standards. No additional set top box or special wiring is required.
This technology is the standard for compatibility with the more than 150 national HD channels and 1,500 local broadcast HD and digital channels being launched by DIRECTV. The advanced coding system enables delivery of many more HD channels in the same frequency bandwidth as before. Integrated MPEG-4 HDTVs support the industry’s deployment of DIRECTV-delivered HD content, while setting the stage for the longer-term implementation of MPEG-4 by other satellite operators, cable companies, telcos and broadcasters.
