I bought this TV just under 2 years ago and I have found it to be extremely reliable with a fantastic picture. I bought this tv on 18/12/09. I had just bought a PS3 and wanted a good tv to play games on. The tv is fantastic. I bought this TV during the Easter sale after spending a few weeks researching the TVs available (looking for good value for money). We paid £399.

3CCD Color Video Camera

BRC-300 BRC-300P


Superb Picture Quality with a Mega Pixels 3-CCD
The BRC-300 incorporates three 1/4.7-type Advanced HAD CCD sensors with a total of 1,070,000 pixels. This camera delivers outstanding picture quality with high resolution and accurate color reproduction. Featuring Sonys Advanced HAD technology that produces image with low noise, the BRC-300 is ideal in low illuminated shooting environments or when shooting dark subjects.
Sonys new BRC-300 is a revolutionary all-in-one compact robotic color video camera system, specially designed for remote video shooting applications. The BRC-300 incorporates three 1/4.7-type Advanced HAD CCDs, that provide high-quality and high-resolution images in both 4:3 and 16:9 modes. With its high-accuracy and wide-range Pan/Tilt/Zoom capability, the BRC-300 precisely captures the right points of the viewable area surrounding the camera to meet your needs. You can also easily operate the camera with Sonys optional RM-BR300 Remote Control Unit, which is equipped with an ergonomic joystick, and feature-rich control panel. And when used with optional BRBK-303 Optical Multiplex Card and BRU-300 Optical Multiplex Unit, the BRC-300 is capable of being controlled from a long distance with a single fiber optic cable connection. The BRC-300 also comes equipped with a card slot that accepts optional interface cards, enabling the camera to be integrated into every kind of system from S-Video to RGB, SDI, DV, or even fiber. In addition, two remote control interfaces (VISCA protocol) are available to provide additional expandability and flexibility for your remote shooting applications. With a number of convenient features such as its Image Flip function for desktop or ceiling mount flexibility, and its compact body, the BRC-300 is ideal for use in a wide range of remote shooting applications such as houses of worship, distance learning, corporate training, high-end videoconference, event shooting, and cable TV broadcasting.
High-performance Sony Pan/Tilt/Zoom Mechanism
The BRC-300 covers a wide shooting range with its highly accurate Pan/Tilt mechanism. It has one of the widest ranges in its class: a pan range of 340 degrees, and a tilt range of 120 degrees. The 340-degree pan range can be covered in 8 seconds, while the 120- degree tilt range can be covered in 4.5 seconds.

All the settings you have changed or adjusted are reset to the initial settings.
7: Calibrating the appropriate settings automatically


This receiver is equipped with DCAC (Digital Cinema Auto Calibration) Technology which allows you to perform automatic calibration as follows: Check the connection between each speaker and the receiver. Adjust the speaker level. Measure the distance of each speaker from your listening position. Measure the frequency characteristics.*
* The measurement result is not utilized for signals with a sampling frequency of more than 96 kHz.
Before you perform Auto Calibration
Before you perform the Auto Calibration, set up and connect the speakers (page 15, 18). The AUTO CAL MIC jack is used for the supplied optimizer microphone only. Do not connect other microphones to this jack. Doing so may damage the receiver and the microphone. During the calibration, the sound that comes out of the speakers is very loud. The volume of the sound cannot be adjusted. Pay attention to the presence of children or to the effect on your neighborhood. Perform the Auto Calibration in a quiet environment to avoid the effect of noise and to get a more accurate measurement. If there are any obstacles in the path between the optimizer microphone and the speakers, the calibration cannot be performed correctly. Remove any obstacles from the measurement area to avoid measurement error. Notes

If the muting function has been activated before you perform Auto Calibration, the muting function will be set to off automatically. When you use the S-AIR product, disconnect the headphones.
The DCAC is designed to obtain proper sound balance in your room. However, you can adjust the speaker levels manually according to your preference. For details, see To adjust the speaker levels (page 60).

Overview of the menus

You can set the following items using the AMP MENU. For details of each menu, see the following pages. The default settings are underlined.

On S-AIR function

As the S-AIR product(s) transmits sound by radio waves, sound may skip when radio waves are obstructed. This is a characteristic of radio waves and is not malfunction. As the S-AIR product(s) transmits sound by radio waves, equipment that generates electromagnetic energy, such as a microwave oven, may interfere with sound transmission. As the S-AIR product(s) uses the radio waves that share the same frequency as other wireless systems, such as wireless LAN or Bluetooth devices, interference or poor transmission may result. In this case, take the following steps: Avoid placing the S-AIR product(s) near other wireless systems. Avoid using the S-AIR product(s) and the other wireless systems at the same time. The transmission may be improved by changing the transmission channel (frequency) of the other wireless system(s). For details, refer to the operating instructions of the other wireless system(s).

On operation

Before connecting other components, be sure to turn off and unplug the receiver.
If you encounter color irregularity on a nearby TV screen
The center speaker is magnetically shielded to allow it to be installed near a TV set. However, color irregularities may still be observed on certain types of TV sets. As the front speakers, surround speakers and subwoofer are not magnetically shielded, we recommend that you place them slightly further away from TV set (page 15).
If color irregularity is observed.
Turn off the TV set, then turn it on again after 15 to 30 minutes.
The transmission distance differs depending on the usage environment. Find a location where transmission between the S-AIR main unit and sub unit is most effective, and install the S-AIR main unit and sub unit there. Place the S-AIR product(s) on the stable surface off the floor. Poor transmission may occur and the transmission distance may be too short if the following conditions exist: There is a wall/floor made of reinforced concrete or stone between the S-AIR product(s). There is an iron divider/door or furniture/ electric product made of fireproof glass, metal, etc., between the S-AIR product(s). If you have any questions or problems concerning your receiver, please consult your nearest Sony dealer.


If you experience any of the following difficulties while using the receiver, use this troubleshooting guide to help you remedy the problem.
There is no sound, no matter which component is selected, or only a very low-level sound is heard. Check that the speakers and components are connected securely. Check that both the receiver and all components are turned on. Check that MASTER VOLUME is not set to VOLUME MIN. Press MUTING to cancel the muting function. Check that you have selected the correct component with the input buttons. The protective device on the receiver has been activated. Turn off the receiver, eliminate the short-circuit problem, and turn on the power again. Check that the INPUT MODE setting is correct for SAT/CATV input. Additional Information There is no sound from a specific component. Check that the component is connected correctly to the audio input jacks for that component. Check that the cord(s) used for the connection is (are) fully inserted into the jacks on both the receiver and the component. There is no sound from one of the front speakers. Make sure you have connected to both the L and R jacks of an analog component, and not only to either the L or R jack. Use an audio cord (not supplied).

The FM reception is poor. Use a 75-ohm coaxial cable (not supplied) to connect the receiver to an outdoor FM antenna as shown below. If you connect the receiver to an outdoor antenna, ground it against lightning. To prevent a gas explosion, do not connect the ground wire to a gas pipe.

Outdoor FM antenna

The remote does not function. Point the remote at the remote sensor on the receiver. Remove any obstacles in the path between the remote and the receiver. Replace all the batteries in the remote with new ones, if they are weak. Make sure you select the correct input on the remote.


The POWER/ACTIVE STANDBY indicator is flashing. The receiver is in protection mode. Turn off the receiver and turn it on again. The receiver is turned off automatically. The AUTO STBY function is working (page 62).
Ground wire (not supplied) To ground
Radio stations cannot be tuned in. Check that the antennas are connected securely. Adjust the antennas and connect an external antenna, if necessary. The signal strength of the stations is too weak (when tuning in with automatic tuning). Change to monaural reception (page 35). No stations have been preset or the preset stations have been cleared (when tuning by scanning preset stations). Preset the stations (page 37).
