All FX5 sets come with NuVision’s own FX5 and FFM technologies
FX5 eliminates the need for the 3:2 pull down algorithm found in 60Hz displays, by recreating each frame five times, thus utilizing the 120Hz and high refresh rate of the panels
FFM helps create flicker-free fast sports and motion sequences by comparing two consecutive frames and generating additional interpolated frames
Both functions can be shut off completely to control any latency issues that may occur
The Series comes with a full, two-year manufacturer’s warranty on all parts and labor.
