Dazzling display

SONY Malaysia has added a new model to its Bravia W ­family of Internet-enabled HDTVs.

The W954 has a Triluminos screen which accurately ­displays hard-to-reproduce reds and ­emerald greens, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid and intense. And to make fast moving action scenes look smooth, the HDTV uses Motionflow XR ­technology which creates and inserts ­transitional images between every frame.

The HDTV also features NFC (near-field ­communication) for mirroring content ­wirelessly from devices that support the technology such as the Sony Xperia Z. Users only need to touch the TV remote with their smartphone in order to make their images appear on the big screen.

There is also SimulView which makes use of the HDTV’s 3D feature in an ­interesting way. It allows two ­gamers ­playing a splitscreen ­multiplayer videogame to play the game in full screen on the TV using the bundled 3D active shutter glasses.

Instead of a tiny side-by-side or stacked split screen, each player will see a full screen image that is not visible to the other player and vice versa.

Other features include built-in WiFi, Signal–to-Sound ­architecture for ­powerful sound, and X-Reality Pro ­picture ­processor for enhancing ­standard definition movies.

The W954 will be available next month and comes in two sizes — 55in (RM12,999) and 46in (RM8,999). Each TV will come with four pairs of 3D glasses and an NFC remote. — Zam Karim
