Sony BRAVIA HDTVs Announced for 2013

For 2013, Sony announced their W series and R series BRAVIA HDTVs in sizes ranging from 32 to 70-inches

The Sony W series of LED BRAVIA televisions includes the KDL-W650A, KDL-W802A and KDL-W900A. All models are Wi-Fi enabled, with the W900A TV incorporating NFC features of the X-series, TRILUMINOS display, X-Reality PRO picture engine and active 3D capability. The KDL-W900A LED HD TV leverages the highest level of Motionflow XR for the best experience when viewing fast-moving action. The W900A integrates a unique long duct speaker cabinet design. The long 1.2m speaker duct is cleverly folded into a compact unit that’s hidden neatly behind the TV screen. Though the speakers are hidden, the newly-designed speaker cabinet reproduces rich bass and lower midrange sounds, adding extra punch and depth to action movies, music and dialogue. This is means they produce the bass extension of a much bigger, bulkier speaker.

The R series BRAVIA LED HD TVs includes several options for consumers looking for feature rich TVs with incredible picture quality. The KDL-R550A LED HD TV with 3D is Wi-Fi connected enabling consumers to wirelessly access a full array of Sony Entertainment Network services; as well as being RVU compliant, meaning DirectTV customers with Genie Whole-Home HD DVR can access their set-top box, DVR and on-demand services right from the KDL-R550A TV without the need for additional equipment. With passive 3D (including four pairs of glasses) the model is available in 70-inch, 60-inch and 50-inch sizes representing new sizes and performance from Sony. Also available with the same feature-set, in 60 and 70-inch sizes, minus 3D capability is the KDL-R520A. Additionally, the KDL-40R450A LED HDTV and KDL-32R400A will debut offering excellent picture and a bevy of features, including One-touch Mirroring, representing a great value for consumers.

Also, new for 2013 is Sony’s flagship XBR-X900A 4K Ultra HD LED TVs.

Price and Availability (Spring 2013) Price TBD.
