Innovative technology explained simply.


10-bit colour depth
This technology approximately quadruples the resolution in the colour range compared to previously used 8-bit technology. As a result, colour transitions and gradations are much more differentiated and thus finer, and the picture takes a major step forwards in terms of natural colour rendering.


The audio return channel (ARC) permits direct transmission of audio signals from a TV transmitter to an external audio system connected via HDMI, thus reducing the amount of cabling required.
Automatic aspect ratio recognition
Allows the picture to be shown in its correct format, filling the screen and yet fitting as many elements as possible into the frame – for both TV broadcasts and external image sources.
Automatic HDMI program change
An active HDMI source is recognised and the corresponding channel is automatically selected.


Consumer Electronics Control makes it possible to control the television and any connected AV devices with a single remote control. Additional control signals are transmitted over the HDMI connection along with image and sound information.
The common interface has been further developed. It is used to decrypt received DVB data that has been encrypted in accordance with the CI+ process. The CI+ module is the interface between the encrypted data and the smartcard that contains the customerspecific access data.


Dynamic Motion Control. Process for calculating intermediate images. This provides a smooth display of cinema films.
Dolby Digital Plus
Multi-channel sound system from Dolby Laboratories, Inc. - Further development of the Dolby Digital sound system with improved transmission efficiency and enhanced reproduction quality due to a higher number of possible audio channels and increased data rates.
DVB-C/-T/-S2 module
Integrated receiver, supports all reception paths (analogue, DVB-C/-T/-S2) and is also HDTV-capable via digital cable (DVB-C) and digital satellite (DVB-S2).
2 × DVB-C/-T2/-S2 module
Integrated receiver, supports all reception paths (DVB-C/-T2/-S2, analogue) in dual mode, thus permitting simultaneous use of two different channels, for example for recording one program while watching another program on a different TV station at the same time, or for recording two programs on two different channels.
Dynamic noise reduction
Filter for moving and static pictures to eliminate picture interference.


Electronic Program Guide = electronic TV guide for digital channels, based on data provided by TV broadcasters. EPG allows you to see and restructure the TV schedule in advance and facilitates the programming of recordings.


FHD (resolution)
With a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, Full HD displays offer almost 2.1 million pixels, and are therefore ideal for almost all image sources typically used today.


Hard disk recorder (PVR)
Integrated internal hard disk memory with a storage capacity of 1TB. This makes it possible to make digital recordings up to 200 hours in HDTV quality (high-resolution) or up to 1000 hours in SDTV quality (standard resolution).
Hybrid Broadband Broadcast TV* makes it possible to retrieve additional content offerings from TV broadcasters via an Internet connection on the television provided in addition to the TV connection. It facilitates access to additional information on the current program, for example, but also to services such as media libraries, high-resolution teletext or broadcasters’ own electronic program guides (EPG).
High Definition Multimedia Interface, with HDCP copy protection. Digital interface for connecting external AV sources. HDMI delivers better picture and audio quality than SCART, for example, and offers the option of showing HDTV.
High Dynamic Range refers to a new standard that lays the technical foundations for greatly improved contrast and, therefore,for capturing and reproducing differences between light and dark in a scene. This greatly improves the picture quality, making it much more realistic.
The receiver for HDTV is already integrated in the television set. HD capability makes the TV picture up to five times sharper and the details significantly clearer than with standard resolution (SDTV). Especially suited to this presentation is a Full HD panel with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
*(HbbTV availability is dependent on the station and is therefore not offered in all countries)


Integrated manual
The television contains an integrated manual (operation guide) which provides short descriptions of the television’s functions. These can be accessed directly in the menu using the blue button.
IPS technology (LED-LCD)
In-plane switching screen technology: for faithful colour display even when the screen is viewed from an angle.


LAN interface
Local Area Network connection for connecting to a home network (e.g. Media Server) and connecting the TV set to the Internet (e.g. HbbTV*).
LED technology
In LED televisions, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) provide the illumination of the screen. One method of doing this is Edge LED, whereby light-emitting diodes arranged at the edge of the screen illuminate it with the aid of a light distribution system. Typical features of this are even, bright illumination and high energy efficiency.
LUX automatic contrast
Automatic adjustment of brightness to the light conditions in the room.

A collective term for the whole range of image optimisation features. This includes all influencing factors, such as the panel’s performance data, the image processing components of the electronics and the functional groups and algorithms in the software, for example motion compensation or local contrast. The rating of the entire package of image optimisation measures is indicated by the unit “Hz MetzVision”.
Media library
A term used to describe an archive of multimedia files. This refers to the online archives supplied by television broadcasters via the HbbTV* platform. The content can be searched and played back on the television.
Metz Media System
Supports playback of a wide variety of multimedia data files (video, music and photos) via network and USB. It also supports HbbTV* which makes it possible to use additional broadcasterrelated content provided by TV stations using this platform, such as media libraries.
Application programme for controlling the TV with a smartphone or tablet; displays the list of the TV’s broadcasting stations and contains a list editor and Wake-on-LAN function. Available free of charge for devices with iOS and Android operating systems.

Organic Light Emitting Diodes are used to create the best picture quality currently available today. The particular strengths of this self-illuminating technology lie in its ability to display very dark or completely black image areas. As a whole, this results in outstandingly realistic contrast and also improves colour rendering. Other strengths include the tremendously balanced illumination as well as practically perfect viewing angle stability. Here, Metz works exclusively with long-lasting white OLEDs, which are complemented with advanced colour filter technology.


PC connection
A PC can be connected to the television via HDMI. Adjusting the PC connection in the menu facilitates the pixel-perfect and lag-free display of the PC image on the television.


Smart TV portal
Application gallery with a multitude of program-related and program-independent services and content which the viewer can access via a television connected to the Internet.
Digital interface for exceptional audio quality. Optical digital output: The TV audio can be reproduced via a surround sound system.


Tri-Star operating concept
The user menu has three levels of complexity to choose from, depending on the user’s degree of technical interest.


UHDTV (reception)
The UHDTV receiver is already integrated into the television set (via satellite). UHDTV reception makes details significantly clearer than HDTV (high-definition television), with a maximum of almost 8.3 million pixels compared to a maximum of 2.1 million in HDTV. Other possible sources include all UHD-ready sources via HDMI or suitable UHD video or photo content via USB or a network.
UHD (resolution)
With a resolution of 3840x2160 pixels, ultra-high-definition displays offer almost 8.3 pixels, and can thus display considerably more details and definition when used with suitable sources. This means that the picture is still perceived to be clear, even at very low viewing distances.


Wireless Local Area Network for connecting wirelessly to a home network (e.g. Media Server) and connecting the TV set to the Internet (e.g. HbbTV*).
