HD MICROFOCUSTM CRT and Lens System incorporates smaller phosphor particles and a thinner phosphor
layer than Sony's previous MICROFOCUS picture tubes, to achieve a 28% reduction in beam spot size. This
translates directly into sharper focus, higher contrast and a brighter image, for a picture of stunning clarity.
DRCTM Digital Reality CreationTM Multi-function Circuitry analyzes a 480i NTSC image and creates a digital bit
mapped pattern in real time. The original NTSC signal is mapped in real time, replaced with an HD representative,
and then discarded. Because DRCTM processes video signals in real time, it creates an image with 4X the density
of the original signal. Resolution is increased both vertically and horizontally.
MID®-X Multi Image Driver Circuitry is specially designed for fixed pixel displays. It performs two major functions
– scaling all incoming standard and high definition signals to the configuration of the panel without degrading
signal quality, and providing unique Twin-View scalable picture-and-picture features once impossible for
fixed pixel displays. Watch SD and HD on the same screen at the same time.
