Sony Brings DVD Upscaling, More HDMI Inputs to Bravia TVs23 Sep, 2008 By: Chris Tribbey
Sony Electronics is releasing three adaptation modules for its Bravia line of HDTVs, allowing for wireless transmission to multiple TVs, 1080p DVD upscaling and the addition of multiple HDMI inputs.
“Now you can customize compatible flat-panel Bravia HDTV sets with great features without reconfiguring your entire home theater set up,” said Jeff Goldstein, VP of marketing for Sony Electronics' consumer television group. “Each link module conveniently integrates into the TV's menu system for easy use while eliminating the need for another set-top box, component or remote control.”
DVD Link, on sale now for $200, attaches to the back of Bravia TVs and upscales standard-definition DVDs, while the Wireless Link module is a two-piece set-up that transmits 1080i video to up to five other high-def sources, over distances up to 65 feet. It will ship in October for $800.
Available now for $150 is Input Link, which adds four additional HDMI inputs to Bravia TVs.
