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
> 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 overall brightness and 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.
