The KDS-60A3000 60" Rear Projection HDTV from Sony has 1080p and a slew of features to make it the cornerstone of your home theater system. With its HDMI and PC inputs, it will be easy to watch HD content with multi-channel audio for a true movie-theater like experience in your own home. The BRAVIA Engine EX Video Processor will bring your old 480p media to life with the Digital Reality Creation. Improved contrast and definition is a result of the Advanced Iris function which will custom tailor your contrast and brightness based upon ambient light and content. The SRXD technology from Sony will take watching HD content to a whole new level.
ATSC Integrated Tuner
If you live close enough to the broadcast transmission towers serving your city, a simple indoor or outdoor antenna will facilitate the reception of over the air digital broadcasts from your local television stations using the ATSC integrated tuner. Many of these broadcasters (local affiliates of ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, UPN, WB and PBS) pass along high-definition during prime time.
The SXRD Chips were designed by Sony's legendary television engineers to exceed the demands of a HD 1080 image.
Advanced Iris Function
The Advanced Iris function is designed to improve contrast expression especially in darker scenes with key benefits of deep blacks and improved brightness and contrast.
Digital Reality Creation (DRC) Multifunction
One problem you may have heard about with big high-definition televisions is that the fabulous quality of HD spoils you forever for standard definition. It's not that HDTV's do such a bad job of displaying regular video, just the opposite, they do too good a job of revealing every flaw, artifact and noise component, it's sad just how awful standard-definition broadcasts really are. Sony Digital Reality Creation (DRC) makes standard-definition TV look great on your high-definition screen.
Hollywood motion pictures are filmed at a rate of 24 frames per second (FPS) while video is presented at 30 FPS. When viewing fast moving objects the frame rate difference can result in jittery or juddering motion. CineMotion uses reverse 3-2 pull down technology, also known as Inverse Telecine, to detect the unique cadence of film originated video and reconstruct the original film frames resulting in smoother action when watching movies.
High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) and PC Input
A single thin cable carries both high-quality digital audio and video. HDMI is the only interface that can deliver uncompressed high-definition video plus multi-channel audio in all formats. A D-Sub 15 input also allows connection to your PC, allowing you to use your high resolution BRAVIA TV as a computer monitor.
