Sony eSupport Site for the latest firmware update information.
SACD: Super Audio CD use a technology called Direct Stream
Digital (DSD) to convert music into a digital signal that can be stored on a
disc. Compared to the traditional PCM method (the technology used for CD), DSD
offers a much higher resolution by following more closely the original waveform
of music. With a frequency response of over 100kHz and a dynamic range over
120dB across the audible frequency range - some 64 times higher resolution then
CD - Super Audio CD offers music reproduction that reveals details you just
cannot hear on a normal CD.
USB Port: The front-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to
play photo, videos, and music files on a connected USB device. The player can
recognize Mass Storage Class (MSC) Devices that are FAT-compatible and Still
Image Capture Devices (SICD) class devices. The player can recognize up to 500
folders/files. The USB port also allows you to enjoy additional content (such as
BonusView) on certain Blu-ray Disc titles. Some BD-ROMs have bonus content and
other data which can be downloaded to an inserted USB Flash Drive (minimum 1 GB
recommended, sold separately).

HDMI Output: The BDP-S6700's
HDMI output simplifies A/V connections by carrying video and digital audio in
one cable. The HDMI resolution can be fixed at 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p,
4K, or set to Auto (which selects the highest resolution accepted by your
- 4K UHD Upscale: Experience your favorite movies in up to 4x the
detail of Full HD with 4K upscaling. Connected to a compatible 4K TV, an
advanced video processor inside the Blu-ray player converts standard video
into a signal nearer to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160). With 8 million pixels
in the picture, you get sharper, more detailed images, and the higher image
quality lets you sit closer to the screen.
- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: The Blu-ray player supports 4:4:4,
4:2:2, and 4:2:0 color subsampling. An "Auto" setting detects the connected
TV type and switches to the matching color setting. With 4:4:4, luminance
(brightness) and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in
an RGB color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image
with more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- 24p Output: Movies are typically recorded on film with a
frame rate of 24 frames per second. When a movie is transferred to Blu-ray Disc at
24 frames per second the BDP-S6700 will output that signal to the TV (if the TV will
accept the 1080p/24 format) with no need for conversion.
Note: This player does not offer
any analog audio/video outputs.
3D-Ready w/ 2D-3D Conversion: The Sony BDP-S6700 lets
you enjoy 3D Blu-ray disc movies in full HD 1080p. 3D viewing requires
compatible 3D content, 3D-ready HDTV, 3D emitter and glasses, and a
high-speed HDMI cable (supporting at least 10.2 Gbps) connection. The Sony
BDP-S6700 can also convert 2D (two-dimensional) video content into simulated
3D (three-dimensional) video when connected to a 3D-ready TV, with
3D-glasses. You can make adjustments to the 3D image depth.
Advanced Color Technologies: The Sony BDP-S6700 Blu-ray
player features Sony's proprietary Triluminos Color technology & Super Bit
Mapping, as well as
supports Deep Color.
- Triluminos Color: The BDP-S6700 incorporates Sony's
Triluminos Color technology to provide a wider color gamut with rich,
authentic color and a far more natural viewing experience with a heightened
sense of depth.
- Super Bit Mapping: Super Bit Mapping reduces color banding by
smoothing the gradation of video signals.
- Deep Color: The Sony Blu-ray player supports a color
depth of up to 12 bits. Connecting the player and a TV that supports Deep
Color via HDMI allows more accurate color reproduction than when connecting
it to a TV that does not support Deep Color. The Deep Color function can be
set to 10-bit, 12-bit, 16-bit, Auto, or Off.
IP Content Noise Reduction Pro: See it all clearly with IP
Content Noise Reduction PRO, a combination of picture technologies. Noise

the sharpness and detail of the edges, while Contrast Remaster automatically
arranges the black and white levels so that the screen is not too dark and
the image is modulated.
- Super Resolution + Smoothing: Super Resolution improves
the overall resolution of picture. Smoothing reduces on-screen banding by
smoothing gradations on flat areas.
- Clear Black: Adjusts the display of the dark elements
of the image. All shading is not suppressed; it allows beautifully
reproduced black tones.
- Noise Reduction: BNR reduces the mosaic-like block
noise in the picture, MNR reduces minor noise around the picture outlines
(mosquito noise), and I/P to enhance the picture quality of streamed network
