17% faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Seiki SE40FO04 has a motion interpolation frequency of 60Hz, however the JVC LT-40C550 is only a 50Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (10Hz slower). 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.
