Whilst this is a photo copy, and some of the pages are a little askew, it was all readable and intact. A real bonus finding an old manual for a classic piece of kit that no other site had.

â¢ Integrated ATSC Tuner and Digital Cable Ready with Cable Card Slot â¢ HD MICROFOCUSâ¢ CRT and Lens System â¢ DRCâ¢ (Digital Reality Creationâ¢) MultiFunction V1 Technology â¢ Memory StickÂ® Playback (JPEG, MPEG1)*
HD MICROFOCUSâ¢ 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. DRCâ¢ Digital Reality Creationâ¢ 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 DRCâ¢ 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. MIDÂ®-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.
