Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) Part of the cinematic drama in film-making comes from
details found in shadows and dark areas of the picture. Sony’s Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE)
uses real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels for improved contrast without
masking details the filmmaker intended you to see. ACE delivers deep blacks in darker scenes, as
well as fine details in shadows and other dark areas of the picture for a difference you can truly see.
BRAVIA® Engine™ Technology The latest version of Sony’s respected BRAVIA Engine fully digital
video processor uses a collection of unique SONY algorithms to significantly reduce noise and
produce sharp, vibrant, life-like images... Dynamic Noise Reduction: Intelligently identifies and
dramatically reduces noise in the signal according to the motion and brightness of each scene for
clearer, crisper images. Detail Enhancement: Improved image enhancement algorithms render
greater overall detail. Contrast Enhancement: Works with the Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit to
optimize the contrast for every scene to create better depth and reality. BRAVIA Engine technology
optimizes the color, contrast, detail and clarity of every scene for the exceptional performance that
BRAVIA HDTVs are known for.
BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ BRAVIA Theatre Sync is based on the industry standard HDMI™ -CEC
function and allows your HDMI cable to do more than just transmit pure digital audio and video
signals by allowing one-touch control of compatible A/V components. Functions include: ONE-PUSH
PLAY, ONE-PUSH THEATRE SETTINGS and ONE-PUSH SYSTEM POWER OFF
