Manufacturer's Description

As well as Full HD 1080p resolution, the RV Series gets the best from HD content by using 100Hz Picture Processing which virtually eliminates motion blur often associated with fast moving sports action with its 24 frames-per-second display – so you’re watching exactly what the director intended.
