Sony outs TVs with three integrated tuners

Sony on Wednesday introduced three new BRAVIA HDTVs for Europe. The V5800, W5800 and Z5800 have three tuners for receiving satellite (DVB-S2), over-the-air terrestrial (DVB-T) and cable (DVB-C) channels in standard definition or HD, nullifying the need for separate set-top boxes. The LCDs output at 1080p and also get a CI+ port for cards that allow access to subscription channels. The V5800 has a traditional 60Hz display panel, the W5800 gets a 100Hz display, while the Z5800 uses a 200Hz panel.

Each has a light sensor that automatically adjusts the brightness of the backlight depending on ambient light to save energy. Connection options common to all three are comprised of four HDMI inputs and a USB port for viewing photos or videos saved on thumb drives or external hard drives. Thanks to DLNA compatibility, viewers can stream content from PCs, PS3s or other networked devices. The dynamic contrast ratio on all three is the same 100,000:1.

The three sets will soon become available in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, though no prices or defined ship dates have been revealed.
