Sony's 1920 x 1080 display is naturally able to resolve finer details than the typical TV. (Simulated Picture for Illustration.)
Full 1080
BRAVIA XBR television was designed from the ground up to deliver the best of High Definition. For the larger screen sizes, this means not only HDMI™ inputs with 1080p signal capability but also a full HD panel resolution of 1920 pixels horizontal x 1080 pixels vertical.

This amounts to over 2 million pixels—resolution that plasma panels are hardpressed to match, especially in 40 and 46-inch diagonal screen sizes. Sony's 2 million pixels are more than twice as many as 720p plasma HDTVs and more than five times that of plasma EDTVs. The difference is profound. For example, in order to show 1080i or 1080P High Definition signals, a 720P television must first downconvert the signal, losing more than 55% of the pixels in the process! BRAVIA XBR television's Full HD 1080 design delivers every pixel of performance from HD sources.

What is Picture Quality?

QUESTION: Which is responsible for picture quality? ANSWER: All of them. (Simulated Picture for Illustration.)
For some TV manufacturers, Full HD resolution would be enough. But for the Sony XBR® Series, native 1920 x 1080 resolution is only the beginning. Sony engineers demanded all the other attributes of an outstanding television picture, including high contrast, superb color fidelity, natural gradation from dark to light, and excellent clarity. Sony BRAVIA™ XBR televisions deliver the total picture.
