Sony Continues to Market Direct-View CRT Televisions

Sony Electronics today introduced a line of FD Trinitron WEGA direct-view televisions, including a new HDTV in the award-winning XBR line.

The complete line UP includes a 34-inch, fully integrated high definition set, and standard definition models in 36-inch, 32-inch and 27-inch sizes (measured horizontally).

“There’s still plenty of consumer demand for direct-view televisions,” said Tom Evans, vice president of television marketing for Sony Electronics. “They provide people looking to step-up to HD television a great value and for others satisfied with standard definition, an attractive price and solid performance.”

Sony’s New XBR HDTV
Leading this year’s direct-view lineup is the 34-inch 16:9 KD-34XBR970 model with top-of-the-line performance features and advanced picture technologies.

With such advanced image functions as Digital Reality Creation Multi Function Circuitry (DRC-MF), CineMotion inverse 3:2 pulldown, Dynamic Picture™ processor circuitry, ClearEdge VM™ and Trinitone color temperature technology, this HD set delivers stunning picture performance.

The 1080i native resolution model also features a built-in ATSC 8VSB digital tuner with clear QAM and a NTSC tuner for easy access to high-definition and standard-definition programming. Additionally, the set offers an HDMI™ (High Definition Multimedia Interface) and two component inputs for connecting other devices, such as an high-definition cable or satellite tuner and a DVD player.
