Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (D.C.A.C)
Transforming any room into the ideal listening environment is now simpler than ever. With Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (D.C.A.C), audio performance is automatically calibrated according to the shape, size and construction of your room. Simply place the supplied calibration microphone at your usual listening spot, position the speakers and connect them to the receiver to activate D.C.A.C.
Digital Media Port
Make the most out of songs, pictures and video stored on your iPod®, Sony Walkman®, MP3 players, Sony Ericsson Walkman® phones, Bluetooth® and Wi-Fi portable music devices with the DIGITAL MEDIA PORT. Just plug and play the DMPORT unit via one cable and you’re ready to enjoy your favourite music, amplified and in higher quality, with song title and track information conveniently displayed onscreen.
NOTE: All DMPORT accessories are sold separately.
Open up a new world of connectivity and entertainment simplicity by taking full control of your entire system with a single remote commander and BRAVIA Sync.
All connected devices can sync and communicate with one another for seamless and intuitive operation via just one remote commander, thanks to this 100% lossless digital interface that always delivers superior digital images and audio through a single cable.
The international standard for video signals, x.v.Colour defines a far wider colour space than conventional sRGB, which can only display a small portion of what the human eye can perceive. In fact, x.v.Colour can display virtually the entire colour palette, supporting 1.8 times the colour coverage of existing HD TV signals. You’ll enjoy more accurate, natural and vivid colours that truly come to life.
Note: For the x.v.Colour (xvYCC) feature to function, the entire video production chain (camera-editing-format-player-display) must be compatible.
24P True Cinema
Movies at the cinema have a distinctive silver-screen quality because they’re filmed at a rate of 24 frames per second (fps). But since most other DVD players convert 24fps movies to fit the NTSC (equivalent to 60fps) or PAL (equivalent to 50fps) formats, you couldn’t truly recreate that cinema experience at home… until now! 24P True Cinema outputs movies in 24fps – just as the director intended them to be seen – so the thrill you enjoy in theatres can now be yours right in your own home.
Linear PCM Compatibility
Linear PCM (Pulse Code Modulation) is the highest-quality audio option available on the Blu-ray Disc™ format. Sony Blu-ray Home Theatre Systems accept uncompressed Linear PCM high-resolution audio via HDMI Repeater inputs, enabling them to make the most of the enhanced sound quality that goes hand-in-hand with superb video on Blu-ray Disc™.
