BRAVIA redraws the lines of breathtaking design
DESIGN
www.countryspecificurl.com
The new Draw the Line design on select BRAVIA televisions takes their already
impeccable style to a whole new level. It’s based on a simple idea: using clean
lines to make a sophisticated aesthetic statement. With Draw the Line, your
BRAVIA looks absolutely stunning as a visual centrepiece when it’s turned off or in
Picture Frame Mode (see p.15 for more). And when it’s on, it subtly accentuates
whatever you watch. On the peerless E Series BRAVIA, style takes an even bolder
step into the future with the equally revolutionary Picture Frame design, shown on
page 8.
Detailed design makes BRAVIA exceptional
Every BRAVIA is crafted to blend seamlessly with your existing home interior décor, but there are some exceptional stylistic elements that are
worthy of a special mention. Together they create a refined visual effect that keeps BRAVIA at the forefront of design.
Simple sophistication – new Draw the Line design
To create our new Draw the Line design, we started by re-imagining the
entire viewing experience. Of course, a television should have advanced
features to maximise your enjoyment of everything you watch. But it should
also be designed in such a way that nothing distracts from the stunning
Midnight Sky finish
picture on-screen. To realise that vision, we did away with excess and kept
The gorgeous Midnight Sky finish on the W4000 BRAVIA is a wonder to behold. In normal light, it appears
as a rich black. But with a change of angle and ambient light, it’s a slightly sparkling deep shade of blue.
only the essentials. The condensed strokes of Draw the Line design grew out
of this philosophy: A single bold line that stretches beneath the screen like
the horizon. A line emphasising the world of beautiful images above. A line
that embodies our passion for aesthetic simplicity and a stunning visual
experience.
Integrated status lights
The status lights are magically embedded
in the window between the screen border
and the speaker grille – on W4000, V4000
and V4500 Series models.

DESIGN
www.countryspecificurl.com
It’s not hard to find superlatives describing the graceful new Picture

“astonishing” and “exquisite” are just a few that come to mind.
Whether it’s standing in your living room or adorning your wall –
Customise your colour –
the X3000 Series lets you
choose your look
and especially when set to Picture Frame Mode (see p.15) – the
beauty of the E Series speaks for itself. There are four chic frame
colours to choose from: Midnight Sky, Aluminium, Pearly White and
Dark Walnut.
Subtle design accents
The brushed metal façade of the X3500 Series BRAVIA lends them an
elegantly refined quality, while the translucent ‘floating’ frame makes
every X Series model appear to hover effortlessly in the air.
An exclusive feature of the X3000 40"-46" BRAVIA is the option to change the
colour of your frame to enhance your interior design. Five optional frames (also
called bezels) in different colours – every one created to blend beautifully with
any decor – take television design to a more personal level.
Midnight Sky
Choose your colour
With interchangeable frames, you can easily alter the classic styling of your X3000 Series BRAVIA. Pick from
five daring optional frame colours: Light Beige, Deep Mauve, Pale Gold, Mocha or Scarlet Red. All come
with matching table-top stands for consistent colour from top to bottom. With the BRAVIA collection of
frames, you can change the look of your television in tune with your tastes in years to come.

DIGITAL VS. ANALOGUE / HD READY

www.countryspecificurl.com
From analogue to digital, BRAVIA is at
the forefront of the TV revolution
All over the world, different countries are making the
transition from analogue to digital television. In a few
years, traditional analogue TV will be completely
replaced by digital,which brings many advantages
such as superior picture and audio quality, a wider
range of programmes and – in some countries –
interactive features. Quite simply, digital TV will make
viewing more engaging, entertaining and informative
than ever before. BRAVIA is designed to make the
most of this new digital format.
The details of digital
What is HD ready?
Already your favourite programmes are being broadcast in stunning High Definition (HDTV), and this visual breakthrough is
supported by a huge range of our products – from HD Handycam® camcorders and HD VAIO notebooks to HD games on
PLAYSTATION®3 and HD movies on next-generation Blu-ray Disc™. To enjoy these High Definition sources, you need to ensure
that your television or projector is at least HD ready. Every BRAVIA in this brochure is HD ready and many models even offer
the revolutionary quality of HD 1080p, the very best High Definition experience available in the home today.
HD ready means that:
• Screen resolution has at least 720 lines
• Aspect ratio is 16:9
• Your TV or projector supports HDTV broadcasts in the 720p and 1080i formats
(if it has an HD decoder / set-top receiver)
• Your TV or projector will accommodate both analogue component and digital
Digital television packs much more information into a signal than
analogue TV, so the most immediate and noticeable benefit is a vast

• The HDMI™ or DVI (digital video interface) connections support HDCP copy

improvement in the quality of the broadcast. The image on your screen
will have lifelike colour and detail, and the sound coming from the
speakers will be more authentic. The very best of this digital sound and
image quality is known as High Definition.
Most importantly, an HD ready BRAVIA allows you to connect to and experience any
High Definition source. With an HD ready or HD 1080p BRAVIA television, you can enjoy
But there are additional benefits ‘behind-the-scenes’ too. The more
efficient digital signal means that digital broadcasters can offer you
even more channels, or they can provide extra multimedia services and
features that allow you to interact with your favourite programmes.
Digital television also enables broadcasters to create more informative
programme guides.
All BRAVIA televisions come with a built-in digital tuner that also shows
analogue programmes, so with BRAVIA you get more of what you want
the advantages of High Definition (around four times the detail and clarity of Standard
Definition) in combination with renowned BRAVIA colour.
HDTV decoders and HDMI™
For an even better connection to all the new HD sources, some of our televisions
feature HDTV decoders and up to three HDMI™ sockets. HDTV decoders are designed
for viewing High Definition broadcasts. (Find out more about BRAVIA HDTV decoders on
p.16.) HDMI™ is the next-generation cable that allows you to experience High Definition
films, games and more with no loss in quality. For more on BRAVIA and HDMI™, see p.18.

BRAVIA HD 1080p – for stunning detail
and incredible depth
1080p High Definition (HD 1080p) fulfils all the specifications of HD ready (see p.11)
and meets two further criteria for extraordinary image quality: full reproduction of
24p input and a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. The many BRAVIA
televisions and projectors that carry the HD ready 1080p and HDTV 1080p logos
make the most of this visual revolution – yet they require less viewing distance
than old CRT TVs with smaller screen sizes. With HD 1080p, you can enjoy HD 1080
broadcasts on your BRAVIA television or projector, and next-generation HD 1080p
entertainment on Blu-ray Disc™ and PLAYSTATION®3. The massive 6,2-megapixel
resolution on HD 1080p BRAVIA models brings everything to life. Images are
smoother, more detailed and more realistic. It’s like watching the world through
an open window. HD 1080p, in combination with the amazing colour BRAVIA is
renowned for, makes for an extraordinary viewing experience and picture quality
better than anything you’ve seen before.

BRAVIA PICTURE ENHANCEMENT TECHNOLOGIES
www.countryspecificurl.com
To achieve the renowned colour like no other and superior image quality of
BRAVIA, it takes more than just a single high-tech LCD panel. It requires a unique
combination of advanced components that have been specially designed to
enhance the picture at every step.
In both BRAVIA televisions and projectors, we use a number of exclusive
technologies to ensure that the image produced on-screen represents
perfection. There are three different picture enhancement technologies
that can only be found in the BRAVIA range: BRAVIA ENGINE, new BRAVIA
ENGINE 2 and superior BRAVIA ENGINE PRO.
BRAVIA backlight technology
The backlight generates the light necessary to
illuminate the picture you see on-screen, making
this component crucial to overall image quality.
BRAVIA backlights emit purer light for an expanded

BRAVIA ENGINE PRO for the most lifelike
viewing experience
The BRAVIA ENGINE PRO can only be found in elite BRAVIA
televisions and projectors. It shares the image processing
stages of the BRAVIA ENGINE 2 and incorporates additional
high-end technologies to create images that are even
cleaner, smoother and more vivid. One such technology is
Digital Reality Creation (DRC), a special type of picture
enhancement which improves both Standard Definition and
High Definition signals (see below). DRC upgrades the signal
you receive, so your picture will contain much more
information. So no matter what you watch, BRAVIA ENGINE
PRO gives you greater definition and ensures that you’ll see
every single detail.
TRILUMINOS – our exclusive LED backlight is a
revolution in television colour reproduction
Only available on one premium BRAVIA TV, the slim TRILUMINOS LED backlight
attains superior colour reproduction that is simply unmatched by current CCFL
backlights. By using separate red, blue and green LEDs, the TRILUMINOS LED
backlight can produce a brighter and more uniform white light that captures the
true colours of the source. The result is colour reproduction in keeping with this
most exquisite of televisions.
A breakthrough in LED technology
Even the most advanced CCFL backlights can only partially recreate the colours seen by the
human eye. By using the latest in LED technology, Sony has developed a backlight that surpasses

LIVE COLOUR CREATION / X.V.COLOUR
26
www.countryspecificurl.com
LIVE COLOUR CREATION – even better colour
on your LCD television
BRAVIA televisions are known for delivering colour like no
other. And now, colour is even more enhanced thanks to our
unique LIVE COLOUR CREATION (LCC) technology, found on
select televisions. LIVE COLOUR CREATION is Sony’s integrated
solution for wider colour reproduction. It’s a combination of
the BRAVIA ENGINE working with the excellence of either the
WCG-CCFL backlight technology, or the groundbreaking
TRILUMINOS LED backlight (see page 25 for details). This
means BRAVIA gives you far truer and more accurate tones,
for absolutely stunning colour reproduction and depth of
picture, exactly as nature intended.
x.v.Colour – for lifelike
colours and natural tones
x.v.Colour is based on xvYCC, a new international standard for video signals
that defines a colour space nearly two times wider than the existing sRGB
standard. The xvYCC colour palette closely matches the full natural range
of hues and gradients perceived by the human eye – and x.v.Colour allows you
to experience more of this realistic colour on many BRAVIA TV models and select
BRAVIA projectors.
Approximately 30% wider colour with new WCG-CCFL backlight technology
Unprecedented natural colour in everything you view

BRAVIA projectors have the unprecedented ability to faithfully recreate the
true-to-life vividness of natural images instead of substituting or approximating
colours as some other televisions and projectors do. You’ll be amazed by
the difference that x.v.Colour brings to home entertainment when you
have an x.v.Colour source. Sony’s latest AVCHD High Definition Handycam®
camcorders adhere to the x.v.Colour standard, allowing you to enjoy
outstanding lifelike colour when viewing your AVCHD HD Handycam®
footage on your BRAVIA TV and projector with x.v.Colour.

The advanced WCG-CCFL backlight
Wide Colour Gamut Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting (WCG-CCFL) is the
backlight used on some LCD BRAVIA TVs and is an important part of LIVE
COLOUR CREATION technology. WCG-CCFL delivers approximately 30%
wider colour than standard CCFL backlight technology by using newly
developed red, green and blue fluorescent materials. By radiating stronger
red and green light from the backlight and then combining this with a
colour filter, a wider spectrum of colours can be produced to give truer
colour representation.

HIGH-PERFORMANCE LCD PANEL
28
www.countryspecificurl.com
High-performance LCD panel for incredible
contrast, smoother motion and layout flexibility
The majority of BRAVIA flat panel televisions feature our state-of-the-art highperformance LCD panel, which combines two features to make it a world
leader in LCD panel technology.
10-bit panel for supremely smooth
colour gradation
Some BRAVIA televisions feature state-of-the-art 10-bit LCD panel technology that
surpasses the achievements of conventional 8-bit panels to set a new standard
for smooth and natural colour gradation. Sony’s LCD panels already deliver
dynamic contrast and a 178° viewing angle. When combined with our unique
LIVE COLOUR CREATION technology, our new 10-bit panel now reproduces
remarkable gradation across a 30% wider colour spectrum. This gives your picture
a beautifully natural quality, with incredibly smooth transitions between dark and
light shades of colour.
Advanced Contrast Enhancer
Sony’s unique Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) technology helps boost contrast ratio for incredible
depth, richness and picture detail, with blacks that are truly black. Available on most BRAVIA models,
ACE monitors the brightness of the picture and automatically adjusts contrast via the BRAVIA backlight
to ensure the best possible level of detail – at all times, across the whole screen, no matter how dark
or bright the picture. In darker areas of the picture, lighter details become much more luminous.
8-bit panel
Without Advanced Contrast Enhancer technology,
bright objects can be lost in the darkest areas of
the image.
Ultra-wide viewing angle
178° viewing angle means you can watch from almost any angle on most BRAVIA models and there will
be no reduction in the colour contrast and brightness of the image. This is particularly important when
viewing larger television screens.

With an 8-bit LCD panel, the jump from one colour tone to the next is more
pronounced, leading to visibly uneven transitions (gradation) between dark
and light areas on your television screen. What’s more, without LIVE COLOUR
CREATION, the conventional 8-bit panel cannot reproduce all the colours of
the spectrum.
LIVE COLOUR CREATION allows an 8-bit panel to reproduce the whole colour
spectrum and displays colours more vividly. But even with this enhanced
colour range, gradation on the 8-bit panel remains well short of 10-bit
smoothness.
The BRAVIA 10-bit panel delivers the ultimate colour solution: LIVE COLOUR
CREATION combined with 10-bit LCD panel gradation. The 10-bit panel
ensures smoother, natural gradation from dark to light, across a broader
colour spectrum.
MOTIONFLOW +100HZ / UEFA

Motionflow +100Hz technology with Image Blur
Reduction for smooth, sharp fast-moving images
To enhance the excitement of watching sports, some BRAVIA televisions and
projectors1) feature Sony’s amazing Motionflow +100Hz technology with Image
Blur Reduction. Motionflow +100Hz actually creates artificial pictures which it
inserts into fast-moving sequences to effectively double the number of pictures,
or frames, that make up the sequence. This allows your BRAVIA to display even
the fastest sports scene with total precision and smoothness. Some alternative
technologies also insert frames, but the results are inferior to Motionflow +100Hz.

into account. And with the Image Blur Reduction feature, moving objects in the
inserted frames are sharper than ever. Sport is simply smoother with BRAVIA

24P TRUE CINEMA / THEATRE, CINEMA & GAME MODES
32
24p True Cinema for magnificent home
cinema as the director intended
BRAVIA technology doesn’t just make sports scenes smoother (see p.30).
Thanks to 24p True Cinema, nearly all new BRAVIA models take feature-film
quality to a new level too. Modern film-makers shoot their films using 24
frames per second (24Hz, or 24p) and record them on High Definition Blu-ray
Disc™ using this format. But conventional televisions and projectors (and most
DVDs) operate at 50Hz. So to display the film, they have to double the
original number of frames by duplicating existing ones (see below) and
speeding the film up. Unlike with fast-moving sports sequences,when you
watch a slower, more dramatic feature film, instead of making the picture
smoother, the new duplicate frames noticeably distort picture quality. They
even raise the pitch of the actors’ voices. A BRAVIA TV with 24p True Cinema
recognises 24p films and automatically turns off Motionflow +100Hz to give
you authentic playback. The BRAVIA doesn’t have to insert duplicate frames,
so you see and hear the film exactly the way the director intended.
Three special modes for films and games
To bring you an experience that truly makes the most
of your favourite type of entertainment, most BRAVIA
models feature one or more dedicated modes with
optimised settings for different sources. Cinema Mode
and Theatre Mode were developed in collaboration with
Sony Pictures Entertainment so you can watch movies as
intended by their creators. Movies have simply never
looked this good. Now you can enjoy perfect picture and
sound clarity – when you watch in High Definition on
Blu-ray Disc™ using a Blu-ray Disc™ player or the cuttingedge PLAYSTATION®3. Our extensive experience with this
celebrated console also helped us design Game Mode.
Game Mode is exclusive to BRAVIA and provides the most
thrilling gaming imaginable on any television.
Cinema Mode for studio-standard films
When you turn on Cinema Mode, your BRAVIA television1) will reproduce every
nuance of the very best films just as they were recorded by the director. A
conventional LCD television often distorts the director’s cut. Where the director
uses dark scenes for dramatic effect, the TV adds colour. And where the
director uses film grain for added texture, the TV tries to cut out picture noise.
24p studio original
Major studios shoot cinema
dramas in 24p, a format
supported by the Blu-ray Disc™.
With Cinema Mode on, your BRAVIA will prevent dark scenes from becoming
too bright, and it will maintain the appearance of film grain where the director
intended.
Theatre Mode for authentic film-quality smoothness
Theatre Mode goes one step further than Cinema Mode. When you push the
Theatre button on your BRAVIA television remote, it turns on Cinema Mode and
also activates BRAVIA Sync or BRAVIA Theatre Sync (see p.38 for more details on

projectors and DVD players insert

these technologies). On BRAVIA televisions with Motionflow +100Hz, this sportsrelated feature is also switched off so as not to interfere with the smooth, film-like
motion Theatre Mode provides. With Theatre Mode, you can make sure your
BRAVIA television stays faithful to the original studio settings. You’ll appreciate all
the colour, texture and sound that make the original world-class.
Game Mode for high-octane video games
BRAVIA with 24p True Cinema
24p True Cinema matches the
original speed to capture the
power and quality of the studio
recording.
Game Mode gives you greater performance from fast-paced video games by
bypassing certain BRAVIA picture enhancement features that improve films and
TV programmes but are unnecessary when gaming. With Game Mode, you
experience markedly faster response times when playing high-FPS games.

At Sony there are practically no waste bins. That’s because almost all of the stuff
we could throw away is actually saved. We’re using fewer raw materials and ever
more recycled ones as part of our aim to continually improve our ecological
footprint. To that end, a minimum 87% of our global factory waste is recycled or
reused, and in 2006 we used over 1,47M cubic metres less water than in previous
years – the equivalent of 500 Olympic sized swimming pools.
Sony is determined to lead the way as a responsible manufacturer.
As we produce, package and transport the BRAVIA W4000, we focus on three things:
1. Reducing CO2 gas emissions
2. Increasing the percentage of renewable energy used in manufacturing facilities
3. Minimising the resources used by our factories in manufacturing
Two power modes to choose from
When it comes to conserving energy,
BRAVIA gives you a choice. With most
models, when you first turn on your new
television you can choose one of two
modes, with different power requirements:
Home Mode or Vivid Mode. By choosing
Home, you will reduce operating power
consumption by 20% compared to Vivid.
We also offer a Power Saving feature
with four different settings –
Low, High, Picture Off and
Off. Whichever setting
you choose, you are
still guaranteed
excellent picture

HD 1080p SXRD™ technology – for truly

Few projectors can claim to display films and games in the immaculate quality of a professional film
studio, but three BRAVIA home theatre projectors aspire to do just that. Thanks to new SXRD™ panels
by Sony – a breakthrough in image generation – our award-winning VW range can fill a 300-inch (7,6m)
screen with the best High Definition pictures ever seen in the home, in the superior HD 1080p format.
In combination with a Blu-ray Disc™ player or PLAYSTATION®3, these exquisite devices will immerse
you in a cinematic experience that other home cinema projectors simply can’t match.

Stunning contrast
Sony has re-engineered the optical components found in the VW40, VW60 and VW200. Working together with new SXRD™ panels,
these improvements help prevent light leakage and reflect light more uniformly. This produces an image with an incredible contrast
of 35.000:1. The newest VW Series projector, the economical VW40, offers a contrast of up to 15.000:1.
VW Series projectors feature high resolution lenses that optimise the performance of SXRD™ panels by
Sony. The professional-grade Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar lens is composed of many separate glass elements,
bringing world class precision to the BRAVIA VW200 home theatre projector. Each Vario-Tessar lens is
individually tested and evaluated to the most stringent standards of resolution, uniformity and focus.
With an equally impressive zoom range of 1,8x, the ARC-F (All Range Crisp Focus) lens on the VW60
and VW40 is capable of reproducing 1920 x 1080 HD resolution, thus offering an improvement in focus
over standard projectors of 8% at screen centre and 20% at the corners. By further minimising the
space between pixels, the ARC-F lens ensures picture uniformity across the entire screen. This means
great performance, even when using the Lens Shift function.
Fast action movies, sports and gaming
Sony’s SXRD™ panels feature a 2,5 millisecond response time, which makes the images on the VW Series projectors at least as crisp
and smooth as they are in the cinema, even with fast-action sports and video games.
VW Series BRAVIA projectors use three SXRD™ panels –
one each for red, green and blue – to ensure
