BRAVIA® Engine™ Technology
The latest version of Sony's respected BRAVIA Engine fully digital video processor uses a collection of unique SONY algorithms to significantly reduce noise and produce sharp, vibrant, life-like images... Dynamic Noise Reduction: Intelligently identifies and dramatically reduces noise in the signal according to the motion and brightness of each scene for clearer, crisper images. Detail Enhancement: Improved image enhancement algorithms render greater overall detail. Contrast Enhancement: Works with the Advanced Contrast Enhancer circuit to optimize the contrast for every scene to create better depth and reality. BRAVIA Engine technology optimizes the color, contrast, detail and clarity of every scene for the exceptional performance that BRAVIA HDTVs are known for.

Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE)
Part of the cinematic drama in film-making comes from details found in shadows and dark areas of the picture. Sony's Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) uses real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels for improved contrast without masking details the filmmaker intended you to see. ACE delivers deep blacks in darker scenes, as well as fine details in shadows and other dark areas of the picture for a difference you can truly see.

SRS® TruSurround XT Audio Enhancement Technology
SRS TruSurround XT creates a high quality surround sound experience when watching DVD movies and programs broadcast in surround sound, all with just the two speakers inside the TV. It creates a 3D wall of sound that moves past the physical width of the TV so the listener no longer needs to sit directly in the middle of the couch to hear the best audio effect. TruSurround XT also lifts dialog out of the chaos of sound placing it front and center of the action. It also provides deep bass.
