Key Technologies
3LCD Chips The 3LCD technology at the heart of Sony’s Grand WEGA™ televisions provide a bright picture, with
high detail and natural color. These three key benefits are immediately apparent when viewing a Grand WEGA™
TV. You can expect to see an incredibly detailed picture with eye-popping colors.
Sony uses three tiny LCD chips (0.73” ) with a combined resolution of over 2.76 million pixels. The light from a high
output UHP lamp shines into a filtering system that splits the beam into red, green, and blue light streams. Each
color goes through its own LCD chip, which passes or blocks the light. The three beams are then instantaneously
recombined and sent to the projection lens.
WEGA Engine™ System The WEGA Engine™ system is the core video processing system that was designed based
on Sony’s expertise and long heritage in bringing cutting-edge picture quality to TVs for consumers. Its fully digital
signal-processing path includes video processing functions that have been designed and optimized using Sony’s
video experience to improve overall picture quality. The WEGA Engine™ includes:
> High-speed A/D (analog-to-digital) converters for wide-range gradation capture of analog signals
> 3-D Y/C Comb Filter for minimizing cross color and dot structure artifacts
> Digital MPEG Noise Reduction Circuit, which reduces MPEG artifacts such as “ block noise” and mosquito noise”
caused by the compression used to maximize bandwidth in digital broadcasts
> Digital Temporal 3-D Noise Reduction (pixel-by-pixel basis)
> Digital Motion Adaptive I/P (interlace-to-progressive), as well as Edge Adaptive I/P deinterlacing conversion,
which improves resolution in video with motion
Advanced Iris Function The Advanced Iris function is a special Sony function designed to improve contrast
expression especially in darker scenes. The Advanced Iris function is enabled by using either one of two modes Auto and Manual. The Auto Mode has two settings designed to work best with video content such as movies that
vary between bright scenes and dark scenes. Auto 1 is for programs that have a wide range of brightness from scene
to scene. Auto 2 is for programs that have less variation between brightness levels from scene to scene.
The Manual mode is used to help deliver optimum contrast levels under different room lighting conditions. The
High mode offers maximum screen brightness and works well when a room is brightly lit. The Medium mode is for
average levels of light. And the Low mode offers the maximum amount of contrast and works best under low light
conditions. The key benefits are deep blacks and improved brightness and overall contrast.
HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and PC Connectivity Designed for maximum versatility,
Sony’s Grand WEGA™ line is equipped with a comprehensive range of input interfaces. The HDMI (High-Definition
Multimedia Interface) is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. HDMI
technology supports enhanced or High Definition video, together with digital audio to provide matchless image
and sound reproduction. PC connectivity is also accommodated via HDMI so now you can use your Grand WEGA TV
with your PC.
