Sony Bravia goes Wireless with EX1

312w ago - 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,...

100°
312w ago - Sony CEO Howard Stringer has revealed that consumers are purchasing PS3 systems faster than Sony can possibly produce them.

Obviously this contributes to what is known as a production bottleneck for the PS3. He also added that Sony continue to make a loss on every PS3 console sold.

To quote: He was, however, bullish in terms of consumer uptake of the PS3, saying that, "Consumers are purchasing our PlayStation 3 video game consoles faster than we can produce them."

"We currently have a production bottleneck with the PlayStation 3", he continued.

He also confirmed that even with hardware bottlenecking due to demand, "You also know, however, that our business model is not perfect, and that we make a loss on every console we sell. "
 

Sony unveils 240Hz LCD TV

250°
312w ago - Sony has been at or close to the forefront of TV technology ever since the good old Trinitron. Today the company went even further by introducing the first ever 240Hz LCD TV and the world's thinnest TV.

Hold your breath until December (in the US), because that's when Sony's 240Hz LCD TVs will be available to the public. Currently LCD TVs are topping out at 120Hz for consumers, and that's already a significant improvement in speed over the standard 50-60Hz of normal (for want of a better term) LCD TVs.

The new 240Hz technology promises to provide the smoothest, most lifelike, movement ever from an LCD TV and will be great for gamers using next-gen consoles especially. We're still a little concerned about 240Hz with movies though. As it is 120Hz makes TV and movies look a little fake.

The 240Hz technology will be available in the KDL-46W1 and KDL-40W1 that boasts full-HD, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, BRAVIA Engine 2 and 24p support.

This isn't the only big step forward from Sony though, they have also shown off the KDL-40ZX1 LCD TV that is just 9.9mm thick. It's not thin on features though. With BRAVIA Engine 2, 120Hz technology and 3,000:1 contrast ration, imagine having one of these bad boys in your room!
