Metz televisions are optimally equipped for all standard types of reception. Their outstanding signal processing technology ensures that you enjoy a brilliant picture at all times. The result: pure, rich colours, sharp image contours and optimum contrast.
Top-class television – cutting-edge LED technology provides illumination via light-emitting diodes instead of fluorescent tubes, thus creating exceptionally brilliant picture quality. The optimum technology for perfect TV enjoyment: depending on the size of screen, Metz LCD TVs with Edge LED technology are equipped with up to 16 zones that can be dimmed independently of each other. See for yourself: there are so many good reasons to choose Metz.
In order to make the most of all the advantages of LED technology, it all comes down to the optimal interplay of modern light-emitting diodes and perfect software configuration. The display’s backlighting further adds to the experience and can be dimmed, or turned on or off depending on the screen content. The result is impressive: even richer and more natural colours, even greater contrast and depth of field.
Enjoy brilliant picture quality and save energy at the same time. in comparison to CCFL technology, modern Metz LCD TVs with LED technology and a similar configuration consume up to 40% less electricity.

Cinema-style film viewing: Innovative 3D technology from Metz provides an exceptionally realistic television experience. Metz achieves this by means of circular polarization: a wafer-thin film on the LCD screen and the Metz passive 3D glasses combine to create impressive spatial depth – without any annoying flicker effects or restrictions of the field of vision if the viewer turns his or her head. Even conventional films can be watched in 3D. Two touches of a button are all it takes for the Metz LCD TV to convert a 2D film into 3D. The feather-light Metz 3D glasses guarantee maximum comfort.
Sharper images, brilliant colours, smooth motion sequences, perfect contrast: mecavisionHD+, the LCD technology developed by Metz, ensures outstanding picture quality – and is eye-friendly too. Even with high-resolution HDTV signals, perfect motion compensation is possible. This enables even complex images, such as tickers, elaborate patterns or colour edges to be reproduced in detail. To provide a first-class viewing experience, Metz televisions also feature dynamic backlighting, LUX automatic contrast control, dynamic image clarity optimisation, 3D comb filters, in-plane switching (IPS), dynamic noise reduction, CTI and other image-enhancing technologies.
A further advantage: Using HDMI, Metz televisions enable films (e.g. in Blu-ray format) to be shown in the original version at 24 pictures per second – exactly the same picture frequency as that used to record and store films and show them in the cinema.
Excellent image sharpness even during high-motion scenes: the 100-hertz technology doubles the frame rate shown by Metz televisions. Combined with dynamic motion compensation (DMC), which adds algorithmically calculated intermediate images, the result is optimised motion display with even greater overall fluency.
By combining the tried-and-tested technology of dynamic motion compensation with LED backlight technology, Metz is able to achieve a new level of motion optimisation. On the one hand, the DMC chip calculates additional motion sequences. On the other, the LED backlight is switched among four different lighting zones. This so-called scanning backlighting considerably improves the viewer’s perception of motion sequences.
A first-class picture calls for first-class sound. mecaSound+, the new digital signal technology developed by Metz, optimises the audio signal for an ultra-clear and nuance-rich, full sound. The mecaSound+ system ensures brilliant treble and bass reproduction.
For a perfect sound experience, Metz televisions are equipped with a high-quality audio system. True audiophiles can enhance their Metz television with the Metz sound system to enjoy exceptional top-quality surround sound.
With mecaSoundpro, Metz is opening up a new dimension in sound quality. The high-performance integrated sound system, with its 4 speakers and up to 4 audio outputs** per device, delivers impressively rich and clean sound. The result: a unique audio experience that will fully delight even the more discerning listener. In some devices, sophisticated bass reflex enclosures come into play over and above the high-quality 2-way system**.
Sealing the speakers significantly improves bass reproduction. What’s more, mecaSoundpro also provides exceptionally authentic playback. Even at high volumes, delicate nuances can be heard clearly and naturally. Such exceptional sound quality is also achieved by Metz-developed sound processing technology which controls audio to perfection, ensuring that treble and bass are equally flawless. mecaSoundpro takes television into the realms of premium enjoyment: an audio and visual treat.

Metz turns your television into a multimedia centre. The integrated Metz Media System makes it simple to play videos and music, and display photos through your television. Your Metz LCD TV “fetches” the digital data, for example from your PC, network, digital camera, smartphone or tablet PC, thus allowing you to set up a multimedia network in your home and conveniently control it using your Metz remote control. The Metz Media System also gives you access to Internet radio and numerous online services with the new television standard HbbTV. While watching a live TV programme you can retrieve additional information via a DSL Internet connection – or watch programmes you’ve missed via the broadcasters’ media libraries and access additional content from TV broadcasters. Many new and interesting possibilities are opened up in conjunction with the digital HbbTV teletext and the electronic programme guide (EPG).

Metz mecaControl provides all the functions of the convenient Metz RM17 remote control in various, easy-to-read display views. That means that the application combines all the benefits of a remote control with the additional advantages of modern iOS and Android smartphones. For example, the app offers an input field for free text entry. This allows words or individual letters to be entered using the normal smartphone keyboard. Furthermore, if this application is supported by the smartphone, the current TV programme can be switched into timeshift mode by laying the smartphone face-down on any surface. The smartphone can then later be used to resume viewing of the programme right where it was paused. In swipe mode, it is also possible to change the channel with just an upward or downward swipe of the smartphone or tablet display, and swiping to the left or right allows the volume of the television to be adjusted.
Metz mecaControl is more than just a remote – it also has numerous other control functions. By simply touching the app’s selection menu, video, audio and picture files from all connected storage media in the home network (e.g. NAS drive, notebook, desktop computer) can be played on any playback device in the network. Several Metz televisions in the network may also be connected and individually selected using the Metz mecaControl.
Numerous Internet services can also be accessed using the Metz mecaControl. This makes the entire content of the iMediaShare personal TV app available to the user, along with services such as YouTube and Bild.de amongst others, using either a smartphone or tablet – or the Metz television. The transmission of information, videos, music and pictures takes place within the home network with just a few touches of the display.
Thanks to a new network function, Metz televisions are now also being promoted to digital media servers. This allows recordings made on a Metz television with an integrated digital recorder to be played back on other Metz televisions in the home network too, without these recordings themselves having been archived in the internal memory.
The Metz mecaControl control app will be available from the final quarter of 2012. Current Metz televisions can use this app by running software updates. Your Metz specialist dealer will be happy to provide further details.
