SXRD technology is a new display technology developed by the legendary television
engineers at Sony to meet and exceed the demands of a High Definition image at its full 1080 line resolution.
Digitally transmitted High Definition signals can contain over 2 million individual detail points that need to be
displayed accurately and rapidly. SXRD displays those 2 million detail points per SXRD panel accurately since
the 3 SXRD panels actually contain enough pixels to fully display a 1080 line picture without interlacing it.
SXRD has the speed to create a smooth, film like image. The SXRD panels have a blistering 5ms response
time (total rise and fall time), which exceeds the demands of even the most rapidly moving High Definition
images. And SXRD creates highly accurate, natural colors because the 3-panel design displays all the colors,
all the time.
Cinema Black Pro
Cinema Black Pro is an exclusive Sony function designed to improve contrast
expression especially in darker scenes. The Cinema Black Pro function is enabled by using either one or both
of two features - Iris Control and Advanced Iris. The Iris Control function sets the maximum size of the iris
opening and sets the overall level of brightness. There are six settings that allow the user to adjust the iris
opening to best match the room lighting conditions.
The Advanced Iris function is a dynamic adjustment that automatically opens and closes the iris according to
the gamma level of the picture on the screen. There are four different adjustments. The " High" setting is ideal
for movies and music video content. And the " Off" setting works great for sports and news content.
WEGA Engine™ HD
Because of the special demands HDTV places on signal quality a new generation of
Sony' s exclusive WEGA Engine™ advanced picture quality system has evolved into WEGA Engine™ HD. Two
innovative digital imaging processes have been added to improve overall picture quality. A High Contrast
Image processor dynamically detects the histogram of each frame and instantly applies the ideal contrast
level for crisper images. And the Natural High Density Picture image processor reduces noise elements by
intelligently separating the noise from the video signal for a purer more detailed picture. Enjoy a stunning
display of realistic images, amazing detail and sharpness, reduced noise and enhanced clarity with improved
depth and contrast.
