The new BRAVIA models offer new enhancements and additional innovations. Select models incorporate Dynamic Edge LED with local dimming that deliver brilliant Full HD (1080p) picture with increased brightness and outstanding contrast, particularly in superior deep blacks. Sony’s exclusive OptiContrast panel elevates the picture to the front surface of the TV and creates a dark background for rich, vibrant, high contrast pictures even in well-lit rooms.
The picture quality is further enhanced with Sony’s X-Reality PRO and X-Reality digital video processors.

The X-Reality picture engine separates incoming video into its constituent parts of outline, texture and colour/contrast, and then applies image enhancements to deliver outstanding picture.

Viewers can ‘throw’ a browsed website from a Smartphone to the BRAVIA for easier viewing. The application allows control of the web cursor with one thumb, tapping for selecting links, and pinching in and out to enlarge or shrink the viewable areas. The apps, available for download from both the Android Market and Apple App Store, also function as a full remote control with keyboard, allowing easy online content search and playback.
