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. (1080p signals are not processed through this DRCMFv2.5.) 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.
Full HD 1080 There are a lot of ways to define high-definition but Sony Full HD means youre getting the best
resolution that high-definition has to offer. With Sony HDTVs, Full HD 1080 means 1920 x 1080 pixels and 1080p video inputs. From a Blu-ray Disc player, BRAVIA LCD Television or SXRD Front Projector or Rear Projection Television -- your lifestyle demands the best in high-definition which is why Sony puts its Full HD 1080 technology in more HD devices than any other manufacturer.
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 its like youre actually there.
Live Color Creation System Decades of television know how allow us to realize that an LCD TV is more than just
the panel; its 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. Thats 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 Sonys 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.
HDMI and PC Connectivity Designed for maximum versatility, Sonys 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 input (HD-15-pin) offers easy connection to your PC, allowing you to use your high resolution BRAVIA XBR-Series Digital TV as a computer monitor.
