CES 2009: Sony unveils 18 new Bravia LCDs - but keeps OLED under wraps for now


They are Ethernet-capable, support DLNA standards and have a USB slot for music, video and photo playback via your TV.

The 32in KDL-32XBR9, meanwhile, is a 100Hz model with Bravia Engine 2 and without the Ethernet or DNLA capabilities of its bigger XBR9 brothers.

Z sets upgraded
Also due this spring is a new Z5100 series that appears to be a slight upgrade to the existing 200Hz-packing Z4500 range.

Available in the same 40-, 46- and 52in screen sizes, the Z5100 models also boast Bravia Engine 3 picture processing, Ethernet and DNLA support plus that USB port. They are all Energy Star 3.0 compliant.

Zero-watt standby sets
Energy Star compliance is not enough, however for Sony's greenest screens yet – the VE5 series, due in the summer.
