There are lots of different kinds of USB dongles and adapters to make your home entertainment system play nice with your computers, but Sony has just announced the release of a smart stick, which will hopefully smarten Sony HDTVs.
After glasses-free 3D HDTVs, it makes sense that some of the parallax viewing technology would allow you to do something like this. Sony has now demonstrated a new TV set which allows two people to watch two different channels at the same time, depending on where they sit on the couch.
Oh Sony. Sometimes you act like Brando. Your first generation PS3s are much better than the latter ones in terms of features. I think aside from the latest iPod Nano, the PS3 is the only major electronic product I know of that devolved as the years progressed.
The new Sony BRAVIA XBR-60LX900, XBR-52LX900, XBR-46LX900 and XBR40LX900 have a feature I haven’t come across on any other set yet. These sets include a new feature called “Intelligent Presence Sensor,” which automatically detects faces of people viewing the set, and optimizes the picture for their viewing pleasure.
Sounds like a mere glimpse of the future, but if today’s iPods can make playlists on the fly, then there’s no reason why TVs can’t suggest shows for viewers. Pocket-lint reports that Sony will incorporate a “service” – currently called Neon – on forthcoming Bravia TVs that will be able to recommend shows based on a certain number of inputs from a user.
Sony unveiled three new “DVD-integrated home theater solutions” this week, the DAV-HDX587WC, the DAV-HDX589W and the DAV-HDX285. No, I did not make those names up. Now I’m sitting here, going back and forth between the 587WC’s and the 589W’s product spec sheets, truly, deeply, sincerely wishing that I made this mess up, because for the life of me I cannot tell the difference between the two.
Fans of Sony’s SXRD line of projectors, start getting your checkbooks ready. The latest entry in Sony’s line of high-quality front projectors has emerged and it’s looking pretty badass.
The Bravia VPL-VW200 is the top-of-the-line successor to Sony’s flagship VPL-VW100 projector.
Sony Japan has just announced a number of new flat-panel LCD televisions in the BRAVIA line. The W5000, V5000 and V3000 series come in sizes ranging from 40 to 52 inches.
All of the models feature a full HD 1080p 10-bit LCD panel.
I’m a big fan of Sony’s SXRD display technology, with its excellent contrast and fine (virtually invisible) pixel structure, and I’m really excited to hear about these new models.
Sony’s new A3000 series features three new displays, a 50-inch (KDS-50A3000), a 55-inch (KDS-55A3000) and a 60-inch (KDS-60A3000).
Sony has introduced the latest in their Digital Media Port line of accessories for their Bravia audio systems, the TDM-NC1.
The $199 device lets you wirelessly stream music (ATRAC, AAC and WMA formats) from your PC to your Bravia home entertainment system (assuming you have one of the models with Sony’s proprietary Digital Media Port.)
Sony today announced a new series of agressively-priced LCD front projectors, the Bravia VPL-AW10 ($1000 MSRP) and VPL-AW15 ($1300 MSRP).
Both projectors feature a widescreen 3-LCD panel with 720p native resolution, and a bright 165-watt UHP lamp.
I’ve been a big fan of Sony’s BRAVIA LCD flat panel sets for quite some time. Now, so long as your bank account can take it, you can have the cream of the crop with their new 70-inch Bravia television, the KDL-70XBR3.
Sony has begun shipping their new 46-inch BRAVIA XBR LCD Flat Panel HDTV.
The Sony KDL-46XBR3 features all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a top-notch display. The panel features full 1080p (1920×1080) native resolution and three 1080p HDMI inputs (two on the back, one on the front).
This may be old news, but since I never saw this commercial, I figured that some of you might not have either. The commercial is for Sony’s BRAVIA line of TVs and features a drop of over 250,000 multi-colored superballs down the streets of San Francisco.
