Sony CEDIA booth tour

Sony logoHome Theater Forum put together a brilliant booth tour video for Sony’s new products. Highlights include:

The new XBR10 line of BRAVIA LCD televisions with LED light engine for an ultra-thin design. It uses an outboard media box and delivers video to the display itself wireless.

A new Blu-ray Disc player, the BDP-N460, which includes streaming from Netflix and other sources. It has drivers for a Linksys wireless bridge installed so if you do need wireless connectivity it’s available, although the existing BDP-S560 has WiFi built in. It will sell for $249.

Finally a 400-disc Blu-ray mega-changer is available! The BDP-CX960 and BDP-CX7000ES both have BD-Live, DVD upscaling, and decoding for all high-res audio. They will automatically pull down metadata for discs loaded in the slots from Gracenote. The interface isn’t very user-friendly, but it’s steps above the older mega-changers.
