High-Definition and Standard-Definition signals are transmitted with different aspect ratios  
(the width-to-height shape of the image). Most HD signals use a widescreen aspect ratio of  
16:9. Most SD signals use a boxy 4:3 aspect ratio. The 16:9 aspect ratio looks perfect on your  
BRAVIA, but a 4:3 image may need to be adjusted to better fill the wide screen of your  
BRAVIA.
