Sony released several new products at the CEDIA Expo in Indianapolis recently, of which three are from its brand new strangely-named BRAVIA line.
The three BRAVIA products in question are flat panel LCD televisions, in 40, 32, and 26 inches (Model numbers are KDL-V40XBR1, KDL-V32XBR1, and KDL-V26XBR1 respectively). All three are HDTV-ready, have 1366 x 768 resolution, 13 watt speakers, and a special backlighting system that apparently produces "purer white light." The 40 and 32-inch models will also have some kind of super alignment that will result in wider viewing angles and faster response times, while the 26-inch will sit in a corner and feel really left out. Prices are $3,500, $2,700, and $2,000 respectively, and will be available later this month.
Sony's new projector and LocationFree TV updates after the jump.
Next is Sony's new SXRD 1080P Home Theater Front Projector. The VPL-VW100 features a 1920 x 1080 progressive high-def projection, and will have a contrast ratio of 15,000:1. This baby will cost a whopping $10,000 and will be available this November.
Finally, there are two products that we already kinda knew about: the LF-X11 12-inch LocationFree TV and the LF-PK1 LocationFree Player Pak for PC users. The LF-X11 is a simplified version of the LocationFree TV, with an expanded wireless range of up to 100 feet. The base station for the TV can connect to a set top TV tuner, a DVD player, and even a PVR if desired. Then there's also the LF-PK1 LocationFree Pak which we've already mentioned, that beams the TV signals to your PC. The LF-X11 will run you about $1,500 and the LF-PK1 will cost you $350. The LF-PK1 is currently available, while you'll have to wait until later in the month for the LF-X11.
