The Internet Video Link feature is the new buzzword in the world of Sony. The latest announcements have been equipped with it and are bound to make the splash! It’s coming out with a pair of 1080p-capable displays in 40- and 46-inch sizes (KDL-46V3000 and KDL-40V3000), three 720p sets in 26, 40, and 46 inches (KDL-26S3000, KDL-40S3000, and KDL-46S3000), and two more of 32-inch models (KDL-32S3000 and KDL-32XBR4). In these V-series, the 1080p sets can accept 1080/60p and 24p signals through their HDMI or component inputs, and feature an advanced Bravia EX engine. The 32 XBR4 model has three of the 1080/60p/24p HDMI inputs and uses Sony’s Motionflow 120Hz motion compensation, which helps eliminate blurring and motion artifacts via the unique frames created. All the sets also feature 10-bit color, Bravia’s video processing engine, and Theatre Sync.
Sony’s XMB Xross Media Bar interface is utilized in the display. Expect the XBR and S-series models this spring, while the other sets will come out in the summer. No word on the pricing of these models.
