XDE600 includes the three staple picture modes of XDE technology – Sharp, Colour and Contrast:
Sharp Mode offers improved detail enhancement that takes content one step closer to high definition – creating sharper edges and ensuring that detail is more visible. Unlike traditional sharpness control, XDE technology analyses the entire picture and adds edge enhancement precisely where it’s needed.
Colour Mode makes the colours of nature stand out with improved richness. Blues and greens are more vivid and lifelike, making the XDE600 perfect for watching nature and wildlife documentaries. Colour Mode combines the improvement in colour with the detail enhancement of Sharp Mode, delivering outstanding performance during outdoor scenes.
Contrast Mode is designed to make details in darker scenes or foregrounds more clearly visible without the typical “washing out” that can occur with traditional contrast adjustment. Perfect for dark scenes where detail may be difficult to notice, Contrast Mode is also combined with Sharp Mode to provide a sharper viewing experience.
