XBRITE-HiColor™ LCD technology
By applying engineering techniques from our BRAVIA™ high-definition LCD TVs to our new and improved XBRITE-HiColor™ LCD technology, we've created a notebook PC display that reaches an incredible color contrast of 90% - without increasing LCD power consumption. With richer greens and fresher blues than ever before, the new and improved XBRITE-HiColor™ LCD technology reproduces vivid colors and delicate contrasts with uniform brightness. Far superior to the 40-50% color reproduction of most notebook PCs, the VAIO FZ notebook with new and improved XBRITE-HiColor LCD technology delivers an incredibly luminous display that reproduces 90% of the color spectrum.

Entertainment controls
An A/V fan’s dream PC, the VAIO® FZ notebook includes a full set of dedicated multimedia controls just above the keyboard. A round A/V interface jumps out of the clean design of the VAIO FZ, adding a unique and practical touch to its sophisticated appearance. These intuitive music and video controls are user-friendly, so you can easily control your CDs, DVDs, pictures and home movies with the push of a button.
