Improvements to this year's 3D models include panel drive enhancements that deliver quicker response time helping to reduce crosstalk, 5:5 pull down for a more realistic cinematic movie experience and built-in 3D emitters on all 3D models.

Driving Picture Quality

The new X-Reality PRO Engine is a two-chip digital video processor that optimizes high definition content, compressed HD signals, standard definition, and other sources including low resolution Internet content. Some of the cheaper models come with a lesser X-Reality Engine.

Also new for select models is Sony's Intelligent Peak LED Backlight which uses full array local dimming with local dimming for deeper blacks. Sony's OptiContrast panel elevates the picture to the front surface of the TV and creates a dark background for high contrast picture.

The 2011 Monolithic Design BRAVIA models incorporate Corning’s Gorilla Glass allowing for thinner, lighter, and stronger screen material.
