Sony was first to bring OLED to the market in 2007 with the XEL-1, an 11-inch TV display that was an outstanding achievement for its time. Sony has continued manufacturing award-winning OLED displays for professional broadcast and video production. Sony’s professional OLED displays are used for editing, dallies review, graphics generation, special effects, as well as for broadcast and cinematic production. Sony Professional OLED Master Monitors have won a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award® as well as a Technical Emmy Award for Outstanding Innovation in Engineering Development.
So with this new Android TV Sony has a lot to live up to but also as consumers we have a lot to look forward to. Consumers who want an all in one package and slim TV should be excited about the following.
The Acoustic Surface technology makes possible the edge-to-edge design of the A1E series by doing away with conventional speakers usually located to the sides or below the TV. The A1E’s design eliminates any visible stand or speakers, leaving nothing to distract from the superior image. The result is a unique form factor with no distraction from the picture. The easel support conceals a powerful sub-woofer and cable management system which can be folded in, against the TV, for wall mounting.
Impressive? I’d like to think so and as with any other pre-order there’s always incentives and here they are
Starting mid spring, anyone who buys a new Sony Premium 4K HDR Ultra HD TV will receive a Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 4K movie to watch on Google Play Movies & TV, a 3-month Google Play Music trial and EA’s NBA Jam, on us!i
Lastly Google Assistant is built in so we may see Google Assistant in other Android TV’s by then. The pricing and sizing is the following.
