Welcome to the World of BRAVIA™
™
Thank you for purchasing this Sony
high-definition television. The quality of the image you see
on your BRAVIA TV is only as good as the quality of the signal it receives. To experience the stunning detail
of your new BRAVIA TV, you need access to HD programming. Your BRAVIA TV can receive and display HD
programming from:
•
•
•
•
Over-the-air broadcasting via HD-quality antenna
HD cable subscription
HD satellite subscription
Blu-ray Disc™ player or other external equipment
Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.
To learn more about HDTV, visit: http://www.sony.com/HDTV
The Four Steps to Stunning HD Experience: Set, Sound, Source,
and Setup
Along with your BRAVIA TV set, a complete HD system requires an HD sound system, a source of HD
programming and proper setup connections. This manual explains basic setup connections (see page 16).
The Quick Setup Guide, enclosed separately, illustrates how to connect other optional equipment.
Picture Quality and Aspect Ratio
You can enjoy crisp, clear images, smooth movement and high-impact visuals from 1080i HD signals. When
you compare a high-definition signal to a standard analog signal, you will notice a big difference. The 1080i
HD signals provide more than twice the vertical resolution of the standard TV signal.
High-definition and standard-definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios (the width-to-height
ratio of the image). HDTV uses a wider screen than conventional standard-definition TV.
16:9 (high-definition) source
Most HDTV signals use a wide screen aspect ratio of
16:9. The 16:9 fills your BRAVIA screen and maintains a
crisp, clear, vivid picture.
4:3 (standard-definition) source
Most standard-definition signals use a boxy 4:3 aspect
ratio. When a 4:3 image is displayed on an HDTV, you
will see black bars on the sides. The picture quality may
not be as sharp as with HD sources.
~
• You can use the Wide Mode function of the TV to adjust the 4:3 image to fit the entire screen (see pages 23 and 29).
• This TV supports signals up to 1080i.

Some wide screen programs are filmed in aspect ratios that are greater than
16:9 (this is especially common with theatrical releases). Your TV will show
these programs with black bands at the top and bottom of the screen. For
more details, check the documentation that came with your DVD (or contact
your program provider).
Programs in 4:3 aspect ratio will have bands on left and right sides of the
screen, to select full size see page 29.
The compression used by certain digital broadcasts and DVDs may cause
your TV’s screen to display less detail than usual, or cause artifacts (small
blocks or dots, pixelations) to appear on your screen. This is due to your
TV’s large screen and ability to show very fine detail, and is normal for
certain digitally recorded programs.
