Evolution of the Sony Bravia
In the late sixties, the Sony Corp. introduced the Sony Trinitron TV’s which was a huge success. These Trinitron displays are still in production in countries like Bangladesh, China, and India. Sadly, Sony stop producing the Trinitron for US markets in 2007.
The Sony BRAVIA brand was introduced in 2005 for marketing its HDTV’s including LCD televisions, projection TV’s and the PlayStation 3. The Sony Bravia brand name replaces the “Sony Wega” brand name which Sony used for their LCD TVs until 2005. The BRAVIA name stands for “Best Resolution Audio Visual Integrated Architecture”
An interesting note is that LCD panels used in the Sony BRAVIA televisions are manufactured by S-LCD, a joint venture between Samsung & Sony. The Sony Bravia LCD TV is designed to produce the best viewing encounter. The BRAVIA television sets happen to be designed with the newest technologies which includes 3D. Most sets now include fill 1080p and a quick response rate due to Motionflow™ technology which produces sharp, smooth images. These advanced LED technologies allow for a spectacular picture in a very slender profile.
Another innovation is EDGE backlit LED accomplished by installing the backlight around the perimeter or edge of the screen, This allows the sets to show images that pack a punch with vibrant colors, deep blacks and bright whites.
