Video performances like the one given by the Sony KDL46XBR6, turns your entertainment system into a true home theater. BRAVIA Engine technology delivers reduced picture noise and sharp, vibrant images while 24p True Cinema technology reproduces video the way it appears in the theater?—?natural and fluid?—?and Motionflow 120Hz processing creates a smoother motion picture for a natural, realistic viewing experience.

An advanced Contrast Enhancer uses real-time image processing to improve image contrast for enhanced detail in every frame. The Sony KDL-46XBR6’s Full HD 1080p capability lets you take full advantage of hi def Blu-ray Disc and PlayStation 3 systems while Sony’s Digital Media Extender prepares you for the future with seamless optional-feature upgrades.

Sure, you already know that the KDL46XBR6’s full HD 1080p LCD screen enhances your home video experience by displaying 1920 x 1080p images — the highest resolution available — thereby also making it a perfect match for taking full advantage of Blu-ray Disc and PlayStation content.

Video performance is a function of more than resolution: video processing is a key element, and when it comes to processing, the KDL46XBR6 uses nothing less than an engine. Sony’s BRAVIA Engine technology is a fully digital video processor that employs a collection of unique algorithms to significantly reduce video noise and produce sharp, vibrant, lifelike images through which a 1080p-resolution panel reaches its full potential. That’s why, the KDL46XBR6’s full HD 1080p LCD screen enhances your home video experience by displaying 1920 x 1080p images — the highest resolution available — thereby also making it a perfect match for taking full advantage of Blu-ray Disc and PlayStation content.

Distortion and variance caused by interference from other electronic components are inherent characteristics of any electronic signal. Such minor disturbances in a signal’s integrity can result in flaws in the signal’s output — like a video image on an HDTV — and these flaws are often referred to simply as noise.

Not wanting you to endure a less-than-perfect HD video image on your new KDL46XBR6, Sony designed this LCD with Dynamic Noise Reduction. This technology intelligently identifies and dramatically reduces signal noise according to the motion and brightness of each scene for clearer, crisper images, frame after frame.

There are a few more words that can be added to the list describing the KDL46XBR6, like expandable, interactive, and experiential. First, Sony’s Xross Media Bar user interface — enhanced by Rich Graphics — offers easy and fast icon-based navigation of all your KDL46XBR6’s functions.

Second, Sony’s Digital Media Extender (DMex) offers system expandability via a digital connection: add optional modules, like the BRAVIA Internet Video Link, or upcoming modules for optimal future compatibility.

Finally, an integrated TV Guide on-screen interactive program guide delivers continually updated program listings so that you never miss your favorite shows.

Using real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels, the KDL46XBR6’s Advanced Contrast Enhancer reproduces improved contrast for deep blacks in darker scenes and fine detail in shadows, revealing all the details that the director intended for you to see.

As a leader in products with HDMI connectivity, Sony has created BRAVIA Theatre Sync technology to go beyond simple audio and video transmission. When you combine your new KDL46XBR6 with a select number of other BRAVIA audio and video products, control functions will also be transmitted via the HDMI cable.

With One Touch Play, operations that took several steps are reduced to one. Press the PLAY button on the remote, watch the audio and/or the video component(s) turn on then the BRAVIA KDL46XBR6 television will turn on and switch to the correct video input.

Bringing you the absolute best in connectivity,Sony’s KDL46XBR6 features four HDMI connections.

HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both uncompressed high-definition (HD) video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in all HD formats including 720p, 1080i and even 1080p.

Your incoming media content comes in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, and with that in mind, HDMI systems automatically configure to display that content in the most effective format. Since HDMI carries all channels on video and audio, there is only one cable to plug into any HDMI-enabled source and display device. No more complicated cable set-up when installing your home theater system, and no more ugly cable mess behind your components. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on this single cable. Also, HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI.

    This LCD HDTV, Sony Bravia KDL-46XBR6, renders dark colors as dark enough without pixelizing on color boundaries. The picture clarity and dynamic color contrast from this TV are a great viewing pleasure. The brightness of this display is impressive even when first turned on. The CCFL backlight seems to come to full brightness very quickly and evenly distributes the brightness extremely well. Color representation appears to be dead on with all types of media (cable, blu-ray, dvd, ps3, xbox). The motion plus feature is great when watching sports but can cause some juddering effects while watching non-sport content.Sound quality is pretty good.
