Inputs and Outputs Notes
Sony's Proprietary WEGA Engine consists of 4 key technologies engineered and
designed by Sony:
- Composite Component
Processor: The Composite Component
Processor converts the incoming analog signal into a digital signal so it
can be processed. This new circuit has improved signal to noise ratio.
- Digital Reality Creation
Multifunction V1: Unlike conventional line doublers, the DRC
Multifunction feature replaces the signal's NTSC waveform with the near-HD
equivalent, while doubling the number of vertical and horizontal lines. This
results in four times the density for quality sources, such as DVD,
satellite, and digital camcorders. The Video Menu allows you to select
high-density, progressive, or CineMotion output. The DRC Palette option lets
you customize the level of detail (Reality) and smoothness (Clarity) to
create up to three custom palettes.
- Multi-Image Driver
(MID-XU): This Multi-Image
Driver is designed for fixed pixel devices. MID-XU is utilized in two ways.
First, its primary job is to scale all incoming signals, SD or HD, to the
configuration of the panel without degradation of signal quality. Second,
the Multi-Image Driver provides unique picture-and-picture features once
impossible for fixed pixel devices. Features like Twin View
Picture-and-Picture with scalable windows and Favorite Channel Preview are
- CineMotion 3/2 Pulldown
Processing: This function provides an optimized display by automatically
detecting film content and applying a reverse 3/2 pulldown process. Moving
pictures will appear clearer and more natural-looking.
LCD Panel Driver IC: The LCD
panel driver IC improves screen response time using proprietary Sony digital
technology. By improving the response time in the middle luminance range,
"afterimage" in motion pictures is significantly reduced, resulting in
smoother movement of images on the screen.
HD Detailer Wideband Video
Amplifier: All televisions have a video amplifier, the device that takes the
original video source and "amplifies" it to deliver a useable signal
to your television screen. The bandwidth rating of a video amplifier determines
the amount of detail that can be displayed on a television. Sony's HD Detailer
wideband video amplifier delivers great detail on even the finest images by
getting the most out of high-bandwidth sources, such as the 1080i signal
available from some set-top boxes and satellite feeds.
Native Resolution: The DVI-HDTV input will accept 1080i, 720p, and 480p, and will display them as
x 768. The component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p, and
will display them as 1280
x 768. All other input signals will also be displayed as 1280
Using the Multi-Image Driver, Twin View allows you to watch two programs
side-by-side with the ability to zoom in on one picture and listen to the
program in the selected window. You can watch pictures from two different
sources (1080i, 720p, 480p, or 480i) simultaneously.
Note: Only the left Twin
View window can display 1080i, 720p, and 480p sources.
Favorite Channel Preview: This
feature allows you to preview up to 8 favorite channels without leaving the
Freeze Function: This function
allows you to temporarily capture a program's picture. The display switches to
Twin View mode and displays the "frozen" picture on the right, while
the current program continues on the left. This function only works in normal
view mode; if you are in Twin View mode already, it will not work.
Picture Modes: You can select
one of the following Picture modes:
- Vivid: enhances picture
contrast and sharpness
- Standard: displays a
standard picture for normal viewing environments
- Pro: displays a picture with
- Mild: displays a natural,
Wide Screen Modes: You
can select a default screen mode to use for 4:3 sources. While watching a
channel, you can use the Wide Mode button to cycle through the wide screen
modes. If the 4:3 Default is set to anything but Off, the wide screen mode
setting changes only for the current channel. When you change channels, the wide
mode is automatically replaced with the 4:3 Default setting. You can choose from
the following screen wide screen mode options:
- Wide Zoom: select to enlarge
the 4:3 size picture, while the upper and lower parts of the picture are
condensed to fit the 16:9 screen
- Normal: returns the 4:3
picture to normal mode
- Full: enlarges the 4:3
picture horizontally only to fill the wide screen
- Zoom: enlarges the 4:3
picture horizontally and vertically to an equal aspect ratio that fills the
Vertical Center: This feature
allows you to move the position of the picture up and down in the window.
Vertical Size: This feature
allows you to adjust the vertical size of the picture.
Audio Effect Modes: You can
select one of the following audio Effect modes:
- TruSurround: adds a
three-dimensional sound to stereo programs
- Simulated: adds a
surround-like effect to mono-channel programs
Steady Sound: This
feature stabilizes the volume level, preventing unwanted blasts of sound during
Sleep Timer: The sleep timer
switches the television off after a specified amount of time. The sleep timer
can be set to 15, 30, 45, 60 or 90 minutes.
Timers: This unit has two
timers that can be set by day, time, duration, and channel.
Memory Stick Playback (JPEG):
The media receiver has a front-panel Memory Stick slot to let you easily view
your JPEG images. You can choose from an index of the images stored on the
Memory Stick, or you can run a slideshow of those images. You can also customize
the features of the slideshow by selecting the length of time that each image is
displayed, toggling the display of file information, and rotating each image.
Note: The media receiver's
Memory Stick viewer is compatible with Memory Sticks up to and including
128MB. It is not compatible with Memory Sticks that exceed 128MB.
Wall Mounting: You can
mount this display on the wall using the optional SU-PW1 wall-mount bracket.
Multibrand Remote: The supplied
remote is pre-programmed to operate this unit and a number of functions on other
brands of A/V components, including VCRs, laserdisc players, DVD players, cable
boxes, and satellite receivers.
The display has a white DVI-D input and black proprietary 26-pin input and the
media receiver has a white DVI-D output and black proprietary 26-pin output. The
components are connected using the supplied display interface cable.
DVI-HDTV In: This input
consists of stereo RCA jacks and a DVI-D terminal. The DVI-D terminal can
accommodate a copy-protected digital connection (HDCP) to other devices (such as
digital set-top boxes) that have compatible interfaces. The DVI-D terminal is
compliant with the EIA-861 standard and is not intended for use with personal
Note: The DVI-HDTV input
will accept 1080i, 720p, and 480p.
Component Video Inputs: The
component video inputs will accept 1080i, 720p, 480i and 480p.
Monitor Out: The monitor output
consists of stereo RCA jacks, an RCA composite video jack and an S-video jack.
This output lets you record the program you are watching to a VCR.
Subwoofer Output: The subwoofer
RCA jack allows you to add a powered subwoofer to this display.
