Don’t let your enjoyment be hampered by low-resolution source videos. With Sony’s exclusive X-Reality Engine, everything you watch – from HD movies to web videos – is analysed and selectively processed to give clean, clear, and lifelike pictures.

Edge-mounted LEDs allow BRAVIA televisions to have a thinner side profile while providing better colour contrast to pictures. Its high energy efficiency also means less energy is used when compared with traditional fluorescent tubes.
