Verify the PC is not in standby or hibernation mode. Adjust the resolution (see page 14). Adjust Pitch and Phase. Due to the thin profile of this television, the heat generated by the LCD panel backlight and supporting electronics will be more noticeable. This is normal operation and not a cause for concern. The current Wide Mode setting is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting when you change the channel or video input, if 4:3 Default in the Screen settings is set to other than Off. If you want to lock in Wide Mode selected with WIDE on the remote control, set 4:3 Default to Off in the Screen settings (see page 35). Check the Auto Wide option in the Screen settings (see page 35). The picture gets smaller during the commercials due to the method in which the provider broadcasts their content. When HD content channels switch to SD content (commercials), the picture may be small with a black border. Auto Wide will not expand the picture during these content changes since the content information is regulated by the channel signal provider.

Key Technologies

Full HD 1080p Its a high definition world and the best high definition resolution this brave new world offers is 1080p; thats why Sony
has more Full HD 1080p HDTVs than ever before. Full HD 1080p means our connections accept 1080p signals and the display will render that signal in Full HD 1080p. The flexibility of native 1920 x 1080 displays allows any high definition content to be viewed without the need to downconvert images to the native resolution of the display. Take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc players and PlayStation3 systems that can deliver 1080p content.
Sonys Digital Media Extender (DMe ) offers a digital connection path for optional modules like the BRAVIA Internet Video Link, as well as other modules you can add in the future. Innovative DMex expansion capabilities integrate into the award-winning XMB user interface making HDTVs a powerful entertainment platform that not only meets current needs, but expands to meet tomorrows needs as well.
Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) Part of the cinematic drama in film-making comes from details found in shadows and
dark areas of the picture. Sonys Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) uses real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels for improved contrast without masking details the filmmaker intended you to see. ACE delivers deep blacks in darker scenes, as well as fine details in shadows and other dark areas of the picture for a difference you can truly see.
BRAVIA Engine Technology The latest version of Sonys respected BRAVIA Engine fully digital video processor uses a collection
of unique SONY algorithms to significantly reduce noise and produce sharp, vibrant, life-like images. Dynamic Noise Reduction: Intelligently identifies and dramatically reduces noise in the signal according to the motion and brightness of each scene for clearer, crisper images. Detail Enhancement: Improved image enhancement algorithms render greater overall detail. Contrast Enhancement: Works with the Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit to optimize the contrast for every scene to create better depth and reality. BRAVIA Engine technology optimizes the color, contrast, detail and clarity of every scene for the exceptional performance that BRAVIA HDTVs are known for.
Rich Graphics Delivering a fun user experience is what the new rich graphics are designed to do. Accessing video content and
sharing it with your family and friends on an HDTV is now fast, easy and fun. Colorful thumbnails cascade before your eyes allowing you to visually choose what you want to access.
TV Guide On-Screen Interactive Program Guide The TV Guide On-screen IPG delivers continually updated program listings to
users. The guide requires no subscription fees or phone connection and is available at no extra cost to the consumer. Sony is the first company to integrate the TV Guide On-Screen User Interface into a custom interface Sony's exclusive Xross Media Bar user interface.
BRAVIA Sync Technology Allows the access and control multiple tasks and system operations with one button ease. BRAVIA Sync
is the name for a new family of control features that not only includes BRAVIA Theatre Sync, but will now include BRAVIA Sync. This feature allows the user to control a CEC-enabled camcorder connected to a BRAVIA HDTV via an HDMI cable by using the HDTVs remote control and an on-screen display that shows camcorder transport functions.
