Full HD 1080 There are a lot of ways to define high-definition but BRAVIA Full HD means you’re getting the best
resolution that high-definition has to offer consumers. With Sony BRAVIA XBR HDTVs, Full HD 1080 means 1920 x
1080 pixels and 1080p video inputs. Your lifestyle demands the best in high-definition and with BRAVIA Full HD
1080 products you get it.
1920 x 1080 Panel Resolution When it comes to high-definition TV the pinnacle of performance is achieved by
using 1920 x 1080 display panels. And BRAVIA V-Series televisions have them. Full HD 1920 x 1080 panel
resolution with over 2 million pixels (more than twice that of 720p HDTV) is exactly what you need to reproduce the
1080p content that can be delivered by our cutting edge 1080p Blu-ray disc™ player. And working with BRAVIA
Engine™ PRO everything from standard definition and high definition is upconverted to 1080p for a picture so real
it’s like you’re actually there.
BRAVIA Engine™ PRO Full Digital Video Processor Presenting the next evolution of the BRAVIA Engine™ BRAVIA Engine™ PRO. Sony improved on the great benefits of the BRAVIA Engine™ by adding a picture quality
enhancement circuit called Digital Reality Creation Multi-function v2.5. DRC-MFv2.5 now has the added ability to
process interlace and progressive video signals and because it has twice the processing power of previous DRC-MF
circuits, it can do its processing and output them to 1080p. (Native 1080p input signals are not processed through
DRC-MFv2.5.) Add to this the crisp details, outstanding contrast, eye popping colors, and dramatically reduced
digital artifacts that DRC-MF circuitry is known for. And the best part of all is that DRC-MFv2.5 is user adjustable
according to the video source. All of this helps define the reason why people want Sony TVs to begin with unparalleled picture quality.
Live Color Creation System featuring WCG-CCFL Decades of television know how allow us to realize that an
LCD TV is more than just the panel; it’s actually a system. Uncompromised picture quality starts with combining
carefully chosen components and circuits to optimize system quality, among these are the color creation and
processing functions. That’s what Live Color Creation is all about. It starts with the BRAVIA Engine™ PRO video
processing system, which enhances primary colors and corrects half-tone colors for natural overall color. Next, a
WCG-CCFL backlight using Sony’s phosphor formula delivers a specific spectrum of light designed to work with our
specially formulated color filters. The combination of these three components creates deep, deep blues and
natural greens for overall colors that draw you right into the picture.
Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) Function Sony’s Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) builds on our excellent
on-contrast ratio performance. A Dynamic Contrast Ratio of up to 7000:11 is achieved by using real-time image
processing to adjust the contrast along with optimizing backlight levels. But rather than focus on the "numbers",
Sony focuses on actual picture performance avoiding exaggerated blacks where detail can be lost. ACE translates
to blacker blacks in darker scenes, as well as better shadow detail in other scenes for a difference that you can see.
HDMI™ and PC Connectivity Designed for maximum versatility, Sony’s BRAVIA XBR-Series LCD TVs are
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 multi-channel digital audio to provide matchless image and sound
reproduction. BRAVIA XBR Series TVs include (3) HDMI 1080/60p inputs. The PC input4 (HD-15-pin) offers easy
connection to your PC, allowing you to use your high resolution BRAVIA XBR-Series Digital TV as a computer
