Sony Bravia Z Series
Sony's new Z-series models feature an Ethernet connection, allowing the sets to directly access Sony BRAVIA Internet Video content using an existing broadband connection. The service offers one of the largest selections of free and premium movies, TV shows, sports, music and more from an array of partners like Amazon Video on Demand, YouTube(R), Yahoo!(R), Slacker, and others.
Bravia Internet Widgets, powered by the Yahoo! Widget Engine, expand and personalize the TV experience by adding on-screen applications that provide such real-time information as weather reports, stock ticker updates, financial news, Yahoo! Video, Flickr(R) images, and additional content.
"Internet-based content is driving the evolution of home entertainment," said Randy Waynick, senior vice president of Sony Electronics' Home Products Division. "Our new networked BRAVIA models deliver streaming videos, access to digital files, and real-time information that transforms the television into a true multimedia hub."
The Z-series models are also Digital Living Network Alliance (DLNA(R)) compliant, enabling easy access to digital photos, music and video stores on a PC or other DLNA server using the XMB(R) interface and the TV's remote control.
