Sony Bravia XBR line to get LED backlights in fall

Sony Bravia XBR8 Leak

Sony's XBR line of top-end Bravia HDTV sets will receive one of its most extensive updates when refreshed for the fall, says a leaked roadmap provided to BGR. In addition to an improved interface and support for DLNA media sharing as well as online program guides, all of which will appear in the unannounced XBR7, the top-end XBR8 will be the first Sony set to include LED backlighting. Nicknamed TRILUMINOS, the feature will dramatically improve contrast ratios by allowing the TV to selectively shut off the backlight in darker parts of a scene, creating much deeper blacks without affecting the rest of the picture.

It also improves the overall color accuracy and reduces the power draw compared to a normal set's cold cathode fluorescent (CCFL) light, which is almost always switched on.

A fast 120Hz LCD panel, four HDMI inputs, and other features from other 2008 models will carry through to the new range-topping screen.

The XBR8 is expected to launch at first with just one 46-inch model, the KDL-46XBR8, that will ship in August. A 52-inch XBR8 model will follow sometime between September and October along with the XBR7 line, which includes at least 40-inch (KDL-40XBR7) and 70-inch (KDL-70XBR7) versions. The already-public XBR6 series now has a more tangible May release date for the smallest 32- and 37-inch sets but will include 40-, 46-, and 52-inch versions in the early fall launch window.

    Sony offers side speakers alternative to black, if provided, they are available in red gold, silver, and brown. It is a sort of similar to what Sony did with its XBR4 series. Sony XBR8 LED LCD TV comes with a black frame and a condition of low profile. Just stay on HDTV Samsung A950, Sony said the XBR8 series is not swivel.The Sony XBR8 matte screen performance in bright light is really great with the images, with their deep blacks and color saturation even in a well lit room and with direct light falls on the screen. In this context, the colors on the plasma generally washed considerably. In this regard, including HDTV Samsung A950 retain their deep colors under a black light environment, but fails to reduce glare because of its bright screen - which is a handicap when viewing content in a darker light environment. It is true that if you want the best image quality, you use the TV in controlled lighting conditions.
