Launches include both LCD and Micro Display Projection televisions featuring 1080 Full HD, plus multiple technologies that push the boundaries of image quality and colour reproduction
Following its highly successful launch last year, Sony has increased the size and diversity of its BRAVIA range of television products by adding five new lines. The U2000-Series and W2000-Series HD Ready TVs mean extra choice at the entry level and top end respectively. The HD Ready E2000-Series Micro Display Projection TV has a 50-inch screen and a Sony 3LCD projection system, while the A2000-Series and R2000-Series take Micro Display Projection further still. Stand-out features include triple-panel projection systems featuring Sony SXRD display technology, 1080 Full HD resolution and screen sizes up to a massive 70 inches.
A refusal to settle for the ordinary makes the W2000-Series what it is. There's a choice of 40-inch or 46-inch screen, plus uncompromising 1080 Full HD (1080p capable) resolution and high performance LCD panel technology for exceptionally wide viewing angles. A specially designed Wide Colour Gamut backlight, precision matched filters in the screen and real time signal processing by the BRAVIA ENGINE combine to boost the actual range of colour the W2000-Series can display. This Live Colour Creation system gives the W2000-Series its very distinctive and special advantage over conventional LCD TVs. To round things off, both models are equipped with an integrated digital TV tuner (DVB-T) and twin HDMI inputs for single-cable 1080 Full HD connection to HD set-top boxes, HD recorders and PlayStation 3.
Launched alongside the W2000-Series, the U2000-Series contains 26- 32- and 40-inch models, all HD Ready with support for 1080i and 720p HD modes. Essential signal processing by the Sony BRAVIA ENGINE, a built-in digital TV (DVB-T) tuner, Virtual Dolby Surround sound and BBE Digital ViVA HD3D Sound enhancement ensure the U2000-Series sounds as good as it looks and offers the key features people need.
The E2000-Series Micro Display Projection TV uses a Sony 3LCD triple panel projection system to deliver 720p HD onto its 50-inch screen with no trace of colour ?breaking?. The Cinema Black Pro Iris shutter mechanism allows precise adjustment of brightness and black levels, helping to elevate the picture to a new level of quality. Virtual Dolby Surround, BBE Viva 3D audio processing, a built-in digital DVB-T tuner and twin HDMI interfaces are all standard.
The 55-inch A2000-Series and massive 70-inch R2000-Series take back projection TV still further. Both use 1080 Full HD (1080p capable) triple panel projection systems based on Sony SXRD technology (Silicon X-tal Reflective Display) for next-generation picture quality. Sony SXRD virtually eliminates the 'screen door' grid effect visible on many back projection TVs, producing instead an image of almost cinematic clarity and focus. Before the signal even reaches the SXRD array it has passed through the multiple processing steps carried out by the most advanced version of the highly regarded Sony image processing suite yet - the BRAVIA ENGINE PRO. In addition to vital functions including noise reduction, colour correction, motion smoothing and sharpening, the BRAVIA ENGINE PRO can improve the resolution of 480i, 480p, 576i, 576p, 720p and 1080i inputs. This process, known as Digital Reality Creation HD-HD, ensures that whatever you watch takes full advantage of the 1920 x 1080 resolution on offer. Additional features present on both Series include Cinema Black Pro for pinpoint contrast and brightness control, Dolby Pro Logic II Virtual Surround, BBE Digital audio processing, an integrated digital DVB-T tuner and twin HDMI interfaces.
