It's all about the picture. The Sony proprietary 14-bit HD video processor includes HD Reality Enhancer and Super Bit Mapping technology which improves standard-definition and high-definition picture quality.
Enjoy ultra-realistic images and phenomenal color reproduction. Thanks to Super Bit Mapping, smooth color gradations are created with an 8-bit panel by outputting 14-bit equivalent color tone from an 8-bit signal via HDMI™1.
HD Reality Enhancer continually analyzes the original source bit by bit, sharpening edges and reproducing detail, while reducing the effects of film grain. To help you get the best possible picture quality, it upconverts 8-bit to 14-bit HD video signal.
The analog audio circuit is mounted on a 7.1-channel isolated board, so as not to interfere with the video and server control circuits that may cause harmful noise to audio signals. Every channel has the same construction and characteristics so that more accurate sound fields can be created when watching movies or listening to music.
A strengthened chassis is used to reduce vibration and achieve high-quality picture and sound. In addition, beams are used to increase the firmness of the chassis, reducing unwanted noise caused by vibration.
Precision Drive™ HD was designed to read a wobbling disc from three different positions to optimize playback. This unique Sony technology can aid in a more stable playback of warped discs.
Add more muscle to your home theater with the BDP-S5000ES Blu-ray Disc/DVD player. The BDP-S5000ES's new 14-bit HD video processor improves standard definition and high-definition picture quality with the help of HD Reality Enhancer and Super Bit Mapping technologies, enabling extraordinarily smooth and detailed picture quality. And not only does it play Blu-ray Discs in stunning, Full HD 1080p/24p, it also upscales DVDs to Full HD 1080p resolution. Fully BD-Live™ capable, the BDP-S5000ES even features an Ethernet connection that allows you to connect to the Internet via your existing service provider to access BD-Live features and easy firmware updates.
By analyzing every pixel of the video coming off the disc the player can automatically adjust the picture and enhance it to provide the optimum Image Quality. These two components of this player’s chipset allows for reference quality video playback and quality.
In the past most audio codecs used compression that actually removes some sound data to transmit audio from the disc to the audio circuitry. This means that what you hear is a subset of the original audio. While this was very good we still lost some of the audio. Newer formats allow the Audio to be compressed but not discarded. This means that once the audio is decoded the original audio can come through. This player allows you to stream the audio out via HDMI(tm) to a Capable receiver or through analog 7.1 outputs for maximum compatibility with high end receivers.
The combination of Frame and Beam increases rigidity and controls the fundamental resonant frequency of the frame panels.
Because of the unique design of this transformer it has an inherently low radiated hum and noise ratio as compared to other types of transformers. This translates to a better power supply for creating cleaner and better sound.
By keeping the Audio Circuit Board separate from other circuitry interference from the video processor and other components is mitigated and can be kept clean. The high quality parts of the player allows for uncompromising performance.
By having an RS-232C and IR Inputs this player can work with a wide range of Sony and other third party custom integration solutions.
