WEGA Engine System: Sony's
Proprietary WEGA Engine System consists of 3 key technologies engineered and
designed by Sony:
Direct Digital Circuitry: The Direct Digital circuitry increases signal- to- noise ratio when converting the signal
from analog to digital.
- 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-X): The
Multi-Image Driver maintains
the integrity of a converted signal by
minimizing image loss in the scaling process, providing unique flexible Twin-View picture and picture
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.
Wide XGA LCD Panels: This
television features three 0.87" wide XGA LCD panels, one for each RGB (Red,
Green, and Blue) signal, that each resolve 1.09 million pixels for crisp, precise picture detail.
Superfine Pitch Lenticular Screen:
With a screen pitch of just 0.155 mm, this screen controls the spread of light to
increase the viewing angle both vertically and horizontally.
The Sony optical engine provides a high-resolution picture from corner to corner
across the entire screen. It also renders an image with high-brightness
utilizing a 100W UHP (Ultra High Pressure) Lamp that you can easily replace.
10-bit 3D Digital Comb Filter:
Sony's 10-bit 3D digital comb filter analyzes picture information horizontally,
vertically and over time. You will get high resolution under most picture
conditions. 10-bit signal processing renders superb gray-scale gradation,
resulting in superior picture detail.
High Contrast Protective Screen:
This television has a screen with a scratch-resistant dark tint surface that
increases black level, resulting in brilliant colors.
This treatment is applied to the high-contrast screen so pictures remain vivid
and contrast remains rich and vibrant. In addition, the anti-reflective
coating eliminates glare from room lights.
Twin View: 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
Only the left Twin View window can display 1080i, 720p, and 480p sources.

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
