- The latest Sony Bravia dares to go where no other LCD television has been able to go before; beyond the prototype realm of wireless high-definition connectivity and into your living room.
It seems that the latest and greatest in quality televisions have entered a stage where technology moves sideways and not forwards in leaps and bounds. The jump from analog to digital television was a huge step in quality, but now that the Blu-ray, 1080p, world of tomorrow is in fact here today the focus in performance enhancements has shifted from a goal of 'more real than life' sensory quality to refining the peripherals of existing television technology.
Enter the Sony Bravia EX1. At the Berlin hosted IFA 2008, Sony announced the latest addition to the Bravia family that has the pioneering feature of integrated high-definition wireless connectivity. Given the advancements in wireless transfer rates, it is easy to see the EX1 as a logical move towards the right, wireless direction. Similar wireless products have been announced before, but Sony's latest Bravia model is the first to make it out of the prototype stage.
The EX1 features an in-built wireless transmitter that beams wireless HD images during runtime; the result being one less HDMI cable to worry about. The EX1 will be offered in 40-inch, 46-inch or 52-inch screen sizes, with either an elegant black or silver bezel finish. Other features include Image Blur Reduction, Motionflow 100Hz technology and the Bravia 2 picture engine.
Pricing and region availability has yet to be announced, but the Sony Bravia EX1 will be hitting stores at the end of this year.
