LCD Panels – High Resolution Full HD Detail

LCD panels used in BRAVIA® HD TVs from Sony ensure you see high definition detail at its best. Each liquid crystal filled cell of the LCD screen can be individually adjusted so that each dot (or pixel) on the TV displays vibrant colours and fine detail. With over 2 million pixels optimised on a Full HD screen, you can enjoy every detail of your favourite sports, movies and games.

LED – Backlight Technology

LEDs are used to provide illumination for the display screens of most BRAVIA® TVs from Sony. The LED backlighting system inside BRAVIA® TVs from Sony uses individual White LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) arranged behind or at the top and bottom of the television’s LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen to provide light for the picture.

LED backlighting uses less energy than conventional CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lighting) backlighting, and allows thinner television sets to be built. LED backlighting can also deliver very high contrast, by directing light only to the areas of a picture which need to be bright – and leaving the dark areas un-illuminated.

Full HD 1080p


A 1080p TV, also called a Full HD 1080p TV, provides the highest level of detail available, further improving the picture and displaying a pin sharp, vibrant and true-to-life quality.
