CES 2007: Sony unveils 70-inch Bravia HD-ready LCD TV – yours for $33,000

CES 2007, TVs

sony_70inch.jpgLooking for a big screen for the living room? Well, if you live in a mansion or similarly-proportioned house, you might want to check out Sony’s Bravia KDL-70XBR3 – a 70-inch HD-ready LCD TV with a price to match – $33,000 (around £18,000).

Obviously it’s the largest Bravia, offering full HD 1920 x 1080 progressive resolution and Motionflow 120 Hz technology with motion compensation, as well as a 10-bit panel and Triluminos LED backlight. All that should mean more detail and less blur. Image quality is further enhanced with the new xvYCC technology – x.v.Color. That should mean more natural colours – similar to what the human eye can pick up.

There’s also a wide 178-degree viewing angle, a dynamic contrast ratio of 7000:1, three HDMI inputs and a PC input (if you want to take browsing to a new extreme).

No news of a UK release as yet, but the TV will debut in the US next month.
