The Advanced Iris function is a special Sony function designed to improve contrast expression especially in darker scenes. The Advanced Iris function is enabled by using either one of two modes, Auto and Manual. The Auto Mode has two settings designed to work best with video content such as movies that vary between bright scenes and dark scenes. Auto 1 is for programs that have a wide range of brightness from scene to scene. Auto 2 is for programs that have less variation between brightness levels from scene to scene.
