Product Description The successor of the highly-acclaimed XBR®-Series, Sony’s flagship Grand WEGA™ XBR Series projection televisions carry on the legacy of its predecessor. Equipped with the same SXRD™ technology, the XBR2-Series picture captures movement with unprecedented accuracy, and the Advanced Iris function provides superior contrast (up to 10,000:1). The XBR Series has WEGA Engine HD™ video processing technology for refined high definition picture quality. The XBR-Series now offers a detachable speaker design on the 70"1 model, and includes three HDMI inputs (1080p) for uncompressed audio/video interface between TV and compatible external components. Bigger, brighter and better than ever, Sony’s Grand WEGA SXRD XBR Series provides the Full HD 1080p experience with stunning detail, film-like images, and crisp, smooth motion. Feature List SXRD™ Panels SXRD technology is the latest 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 2.5ms 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.

Advanced Iris A special Sony function designed to improve contrast expression especially in darker scenes. The Advanced Iris function is enabled by using either one of two modes, Auto and Manual. The Auto Mode has two settings designed to work best with video content such as movies that vary between bright scenes and dark scenes. Auto 1 is for programs that have a wide range of brightness from scene to scene. Auto 2 is for programs that have less variation between brightness levels from scene to scene.

WEGA Engine™ HD The latest generation of Sony’s exclusive WEGA HD Engine™ fully digital signal-processing path includes video processing functions that are designed to improve overall picture quality. The WEGA Engine HD has similar functions to the WEGA Engine™ Green, blue and white color enhancer circuit for a vivid image, Digital MPEG Noise Reduction Circuit reduces annoying MPEG artifacts, and the Digital Contrast Enhancer circuit delivers crisp and vivid images with high contrast. The WEGA Engine HD adds the following: DRC-MFv2.5 Sony’s exclusive video signal processing that improves video signals to a realistic and clean picture quality according to signal types. CCP-XA Generates high purity, high Signal-To-Noise ratio and enables the generation of wide bandwidth and stable digital component signals. IFP2 Has functions that optimize contrast remove noise in the signal to reproduce video with little noise and blur.

HDMI™ and PC Inputs Designed for maximum versatility, Sony’s Grand WEGA™ XBR® line is equipped with a comprehensive range of input interfaces. The HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the first industry-supported, uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface. HDMI™ technology supports enhanced or High Definition video, together with multi-channel digital audio to provide matchless image and sound reproduction. The PC input (D-Sub 15) offers easy connection to your PC, allowing you to use your high resolution Grand WEGA XBR TV as a computer monitor.
