Sony is upping the ante in the high-definition LCD TV stakes with the launch of its Sony Bravia W4000 Series 1,080p screens.
The four W4000 screens will range from 32in up to 46in. Onscreen images are processed by Sony's Bravia 2 engine and all the displays have an HDTV tuner.
In addition to the HDTV tuner, the screens come with a DVB-T digital TV tuner and Sony's own AVC-HD (advanced video encoding) tuner. These give consumers access to a broad range of TV channels with no need for a separate set-top box or external tuner in order to access terrestrial HD programmes. The inclusion of a cable TV tuner also marks out the Sony Bravia range from other HDTVs.
