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.

Dolby® Digital Pro Logic II Decoding
Dolby® Digital Pro Logic® II technology processes any high quality stereo (two-channel) movie or music audio into five playback channels of full-bandwidth surround sound. A matrix surround decoding technology, Dolby Digital Pro Logic II detects the directional cues that occur naturally in stereo content and uses these elements to create a five channel surround sound playback experience.
