The thickness of a TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

The Sony KD-49X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, however the Sony KD-49X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (800Hz slower).

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.
