Sony Announces Crystal LED TV and New BRAVIAs
Sony rolled out the prototype of a Full HD, 55-inch Crystal LED TV during its CES press conference.
The Crystal LED Display is a self-emitting display that mounts ultrafine LEDs in each of the Red-Green-Blue (RGB) colors, equivalent to the number of pixels (about six-million LEDs for Full HD). The RGB LED light source is mounted directly on the front of the display to improve light efficiency.
Sony also unwrapped three series of BRAVIAs: the entry-level BX, the step-up EX, and the flagship HX. Select models incorporate Dynamic Edge LED with local dimming and Full HD 1080p.
Sony’s HX850 and HX750 roll out in the first quarter. The HX850 uses Sony’s Monolithic design incorporating Gorilla Glass, allowing for thinner, lighter and stronger screen material. Complete with X-Reality PRO and Motionflow XR 960, the HX850 is an Internet-connected set with built-in 3D.
The connected features of the BRAVIA line include the Sony Portal, featuring one-touch access to the Sony Entertainment Network and its Video Unlimited and Music Unlimited streaming services, offering on-demand catalog of over 80,000 blockbuster movies and favorite TV shows, as well as a constantly expanding global catalog of more than 15 million music tracks1.
The HX series models also come with Skype embedded.
