Reasons For

2 Reasons For
88% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Hisense LTDN40K321 is an 800Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 700Hz faster than the Panasonic TX-40CS520 (100Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.
