Here at Tech Digest we really love our surveys. Yep, we love nothing better than coming up with questions, wading through your responses, chuckling at your witty replies (well, sometimes) and generally finding out what you really think.
Last time, we looked at how Sony’s BRAVIA range of TVs produce the optimum picture from any video source.
It doesn’t end there, though. There’s plenty more technology built in to these TVs to ensure that programmes and films look their best.
Most of the BRAVIA TVs feature a state-of-the-art high performance LCD panel. These feature Advanced Contrast Enhancement, which monitors the brightness of the backlight and automatically adjusts contrast to ensure good detail levels, an ultra wide viewing angle of 178 degrees, and a non-reflective frame which helps to reduce reflections caused by artificial light sources in a room…
Over the past few years, Sony has built a solid brand behind the BRAVIA name, with 45 TVs in the current range.
In this five part series, we’ll be taking a closer look at the technology behind the badge.
Today, we’re up close with vision, looking at how Sony ensures their BRAVIA sets display the best possible picture.
BRAVIA: Fully HD
All of Sony’s current BRAVIA TVs, except for the 15-inch portable set, are HD Ready. That is, they’re able to take and display at least a 720p signal, be that from a broadcast service such as Sky HD or Virgin Media, from a games console such as the PS3, or from a high definition disc such as Blu-ray.
You may recall that over the last couple of months we ran a competition, CityClickers, to find the best mobloggers across Europe. In association with LG and Moblog.co.uk, the winners received LG Viewty handsets and their phone bill paid for two months – all for just photographing the stylish people and places from their country.
