Televisions

Version 4.2

Download the PDF version of this document.

Products sold in Canada must meet all Canadian regulatory and safety requirements.Eligible equipment must be qualified by the U.S. ENERGY STAR Program at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This technical specification is the same as the product specification published on the U.S. ENERGY STAR Web site and is provided as information only. Administered by Natural Resources Canada’s Office of Energy Efficiency, the ENERGY STAR Program in Canada uses the term Participant to designate  ompanies, organizations and other stakeholders that promote the use of the ENERGY STAR mark on products or in promotional and marketing material and activities. This technical specification was modified to include this change. The use of the term Participant is similar in scope to that of Partner, which is used by the U.S. ENERGY STAR Program.

In order to promote ENERGY STAR qualified computers in Canada manufacturers are required to sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the US EPA. Please note that the U.S. EPA has made changes some changes to the ENERGY STAR qualification process, in particular to include mandatory third party testing. You can find more information about those changes on the following web site: http//www.energystar.gov. We encourage manufacturers, retailers and distributors to sign a Participant Administrative Arrangement with Natural Resources Canada to take advantage of promotional and communications opportunities provided by the program.

Also, EPA and Natural Resources Canada both reserve the right to revise the specification should technological and/or market changes affect its usefulness to consumers or industry or its impact on the environment. A product must meet all of the identified criteria to earn the ENERGY STAR.

1) Definitions

Product Types

A. Television (TV)
A commercially available electronic product designed primarily for the reception and display of audiovisual signals received from terrestrial, cable, satellite, Internet Protocol TV (IPTV), or other digital or analog sources. A TV consists of a tuner/receiver and a display encased in a single enclosure. Cathode-ray tube (CRT), liquid crystal display (LCD), and plasma display panel (PDP) are examples of common display technologies.

B. Rear-Projection TV
A television product in which the display device is a projector that focuses images onto a screen located inside the TV enclosure.

C. Direct-view TV
A television product in which the display device emits light either directly from the screen surface or transmits light from a source mounted directly behind the screen.

D. TV Combination Unit
A television product in which the TV and one or more additional devices (e.g., DVD player, Blu-ray Disc player, Hard Disk Drive) are combined into a single enclosure, and which meets all of the following criteria:

a)  it is not possible to measure the power of the individual components without removing the   product housing; and
b)  the product connects to a wall outlet via a single power cord.


E. Component Television
A television product composed of two or more separate components (e.g., display device and tuner) that is marketed and sold as a television under a single model or system designation. A component television may have more than one power cord.

F. Hospitality Television
A television product which includes the following features:

a) a control port for bi-directional communication (DB-9, RJ11, RJ12, RJ45, coaxial cable, or HDMI-CEC);
b)  activated hospitality protocol software (e.g., SmartPort, MPI, MTI, Serial Protocol) to provide direct access to Video-On-Demand (VOD) systems or a digital media player designed for hospitality-specific applications; and
c)  a power state that meets the definition of Download Acquisition Mode.

G. Analog Television
A television product which has an NTSC, PAL, or SECAM tuner, and may have analog video inputs (e.g., composite video, component video, S-video, RGB).
 
H. Digital Television
A television product which has at least one digital tuner or at least one digital video input (e.g., HDMI). Products with an analog tuner and both analog and digital inputs are considered digital products under this specification.

Native Vertical Resolution
The physical pixel count for the vertical axis of the television (e.g, a television with a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080 (horizontal x vertical) would have a native vertical resolution of 1080).  

Electronic Program Guide (EPG)
An interactive on-screen menu of TV program information downloaded from an external source (e.g., program time, date, descriptions).

External Power Supply (EPS)
Also referred to as External Power Adapter. A component contained in a separate physical enclosure external to the television casing, designed to convert line voltage ac input from the mains to lower dc voltage(s) in order to provide power to the television. An EPS connects to the television via a removable or hard-wired male/female electrical connection, cable, cord or other wiring.

Point of Deployment (POD) Module
A conditional access module for digital cable signal reception.

Luminance
The photometric measure of the luminous intensity per unit area of light traveling in a given direction, expressed in units of candelas per square meter (cd/m^2).

Operational Modes

I. On Mode
The power mode in which the product is connected to a mains power source, has been activated, and is providing one or more of its principal functions. The common terms “active”, “in-use” and “normal operation” also describe this mode. The power in this mode is typically greater than the power in Sleep Mode and in Download Acquisition Mode.

a) Power Overhang State: A power state within On Mode that is intended to facilitate a rapid return to full functionality in the event a product is accidentally switched off. This feature is present in some products that are designed to remain in a highly-functional “ready” state for a limited amount of time after being switched off by the user.
J. Sleep Mode
The power mode, sometimes referred to as “Standby,” in which the product is connected to a mains power source, is not providing a principal function, and offers one or more of the following user oriented or protective functions, which may persist for an indefinite time:

a) to facilitate the activation of other modes (including activation or deactivation of On Mode) by remote switch (including remote control), internal sensor, timer.
b) continuous function: information or status displays including clocks.
c) continuous function: sensor-based functions. Sleep Mode is defined as the time when the product is connected to a power source, produces neither sound nor picture, neither transmits nor receives program information and/or data (excluding data transmitted to change the unit’s condition from Sleep Mode to On Mode), and is waiting to be switched to On Mode by a direct or indirect signal from the consumer (e.g., with the remote control).

K. Off Mode
The power mode in which the product is connected to a mains power source, is not providing any On Mode or Sleep Mode functions, and where the mode may persist for an indefinite time. An indicator that only shows the user that the product is in the off position is included within the classification of an Off Mode.
L. Download Acquisition Mode (DAM)
The power mode in which the product is connected to a mains power source, produces neither sound nor picture, and is actively downloading data. Data downloads may include channel listing information for use by an electronic programming guide, TV setup data, channel map updates, firmware updates, monitoring for emergency messaging / communications or other network communications. The power in DAM is typically greater than the power in Sleep Mode and is typically less than the power in On Mode.

Screen Area
The viewable screen area of the product, calculated by multiplying the viewable image width by the viewable image height.

Product Family
A group of product models that are (1) made by the same manufacturer, (2) subject to the same ENERGY STAR qualification criteria, and (3) of a common basic design.  Product models within a family differ from each other according to one or more characteristics or features that either (1) have no impact on product performance with regard to ENERGY STAR qualification criteria, or (2) are specified herein as acceptable variations within a product family. For Televisions, acceptable variations within a product family include:
