The video section features a host of video inputs, with a sophisticated video processor that provides up conversion from standard definition (SD) and high definition (HD) video to the latest Ultra High Definition (4K) format (3840x2160 pixels) for full compatibility with next generation Ultra High Definition (4K) displays.

A third HDMI output lets you enjoy another program in another room.
