Welcome to the World of BRAVIA® Welcome to the World of BRAVIA®
Thank you for purchasing this Sony BRAVIA® high-definition television. The quality of the image you see on
your BRAVIA TV is only as good as the quality of the signal it receives. To experience the stunning detail of
your new BRAVIA TV, you need access to HD programming. Your BRAVIA TV can receive and display HD
programming from:

• Over-the-air broadcasting via HD-quality antenna
• HD cable subscription
• HD satellite subscription
• Blu-ray Disc™ player or other external equipment
Contact your cable or satellite provider for information on upgrading to HD programming.

The Four Steps to Stunning HD Experience: Set, Sound, Source,
and Setup

Along with your BRAVIA TV set, a complete HD system requires an HD sound system, a source of HD
programming and proper setup connections. This manual explains basic setup connections (see page 15).
The Quick Setup Guide, enclosed separately, illustrates how to connect other optional equipment.

Picture Quality and Aspect Ratio

You can enjoy crisp, clear images, smooth movement and high-impact visuals from 1080i HD signals. When
you compare a high-definition signal to a standard analog signal, you will notice a big difference. The 1080i
HD signals provide more than twice the vertical resolution of the standard TV signal.

High-definition and standard-definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios (the width-to-height
ratio of the image). HDTV uses a wider screen than conventional standard-definition TV.


16:9 (high-definition) source
Most HDTV signals use a wide screen aspect ratio of

16:9. The 16:9 fills your BRAVIA screen, maintaining a
crisp, clear, vivid picture.
4:3 (standard-definition) source
Most standard-definition signals use a boxy 4:3 aspect
ratio. When a 4:3 image is displayed on an HDTV, you
will see black bars on the sides. The picture quality may
not be as sharp as with HD sources.

~


• You can use the Wide Mode function of the TV to adjust the 4:3 image to fit the entire screen (see pages 24 and 32).
• This TV supports signals up to 1080i.
