We've got some more skinny on the 82-inch Bravia prototype Sony previewed at last night's press event. Featuring full 1920 x 1080 HD resolution, the flat panel prototype is the first display to be compliant with Sony's Extended Video YCC (xvYCC) technology. The point of the xvYCC international video standard is to enable a wider color reproduction capability by expanding the current color data range by about 1.8 times. The displayed range of color on xvYCC-compliant TVs approaches the range of color the human eye itself can recognize. The prototype display also features TRILUMINOS backlight technology which further enhances xvYCC wide color reproduction by using an LED backlight with three independent colors (red, green and blue).
