Beta 2.0

Thursday, January 10, 2008

The Sony booth at CES is always crowded and this year was no exception.

People were once again drooling over Sony's OLED (organic light emitting diode) television demonstrations, and the company's 11 inch XEL-1 is now shipping in North America for about $2,500. The XEL's 3-mm thin screen was impressive with well-saturated colors and an inky dark black level. Once again, Sony teased the crowds with a 27 inch 1080p OLED prototype - I predict a CES 2009 launch product for this one.


Sony's M4000 series of LCD HDTVs
:included a 19-inch version, dubbed the KDL-19M4000, that features 1,440x900 screen resolution and two HDMI inputs. Initially available with a black or white gloss bezel, the series may expand into other colors if demand warrants. Expect Sony M4000 series LCD HDTVs to arrive spring 2008 in screen sizes ranging from 19 inches on up to 37 inches.

Sony's new W4100 series of LCD HDTVs feature 120-Hz display technology for minimizing motion blur. The series also features a 3D graphic user interface that is an update of Sony's XMB (cross media bar) interface that was introduced with the Sony PlayStation 3 game console. The W4100's four HDMI v1.3 ports support 24p input as well as CEC (consumer electronic control) functionality that Sony dubs "BRAVIA Sync". Available in 40-inch, 46-inch, and 52-inch screen sizes, the W4100 series is expected to arrive in spring 2008 - pricing has yet to be announced.

Sony's Z4100 series of LCD HDTVs takes things a step further with a narrow bezel design and thin cabinet depth. These 1080p resolution/120-Hz flat panels are also x.v.Color, Deep Color, and 24p input compatible via the series' four HDMI v1.3 ports. The Z4100 series is also DLNA compliant, which supports streaming of multimedia content across a local network.
