VAIO FW opens up a whole new world of AV entertainment with a newly developed high-resolution 16.4" widescreen LCD that supports high-quality Blu-ray Disc™ enjoyment.
VAIO FW features a large 16.4" LCD screen so you can enjoy watching Blu-ray Discs and other high-definition sources with home theatre impact. Since the LCD panel has the "Real Wide" aspect ratio of 16:9, you can watch HD content on a screen with an aspect ratio that's perfectly matched for HD. VAIO FW is a home theatre entertainer by design, so count on it to offer you full-scale enjoyment in any room you take it to.
The Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) afforded by VAIO FW's LCD screen makes sure you're the detail and nuances of HD content, and ensures that high-resolution graphics such as icons, picture data and high-resolution games can be enjoyed at full potential. Additionally, this increased resolution means more information can be displayed on the screen at once, which will be helpful in a variety of usage situations.
* Specifications may vary depending on model.
The Clear Bright LCD [Rich Colour]* adopted by VAIO FW offers 100% colour gamut relative to NTSC (u' v' axis measurement). This visual performance contributes substantially to the "total home theatre experience" that the VAIO FW is ready to deliver.
* Type of LCD display varies depending on model.
Blu-ray Disc™ compatibility lets you play the latest Blu-ray Disc movie software releases for high-definition home theatre enjoyment.

xvYCC is an international standard for expressing colours in a broader color space than the colour range used for broadcasting. VAIO FW is capable of playing back discs that are compatible with equipment bearing “x.v.Colour” logo that signifies compliance with this standard.

Dolby® Sound Room™ brings together a suite of technologies designed to provide stunning personal surround sound from any pair of speakers or any set of headphones. Enjoy movies, music, and games with an enveloping listening experience.
Sony, the world leader in home AV entertainment, adds some of the renowned functionality of its AV equipment — stylish, direct-access buttons that simplify the enjoyment of music and movies.
Anytime you want to watch HD content on an even bigger screen, just make a single connection. By linking VAIO FW to an external high-definition display via an HDMI cable, you can enjoy even more powerful high quality images and sound, while provided utility software lets you easily set the HDMI output resolution.
VAIO FW's large screen makes video chatting that much more fun. The MOTION EYE camera has 1.3-Megapixels to deliver a high-quality image.
