ACTIVE 3D FOR A THRILLING EXPERIENCE
Once you've experienced 3D TV, ordinary TV just never seems quite the same. Images aren't just projected forward but appear to occupy the space behind the screen, too. This gives images an amazing depth that has never been possible with 2D TV. Thanks to Full HD 3D, active processing, the Sony KDL-50W829B offers breathtaking levels of detail and realism. Helping to enhance both 3D image quality and online video is X-Reality PRO. This intelligent processor recognises the type of material being viewed and optimises the TV accordingly. The result is even greater depth when watching in 3D. Two pairs of glasses are supplied.
MOTIONFLOW XR800HZ FOR SUPER-FAST MOTION
Standard with this Sony 50" 3D TV is Sony's top-end motion control - Motionflow XR 800Hz. This top quality Motionflow system works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, without the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR800 makes a significant difference.
BASS REFLEX SPEAKERS FOR IMPROVED SOUND QUALITY
Although no match for a separates home cinema system or soundbar, the Sony KDL50W829B's sound system is one of the better built-in systems. With bass reflex box speakers, this Sony TV offers a deeper and more powerful sound than you might expect from such a slim TV. Also helping improve the sound quality is Clearaudio + technology. This enhances dialogue for improved clarity, especially when set against noisy backgrounds. S-Force Front Surround 3D gives an added dimension to the sound with projection to match the 3D pictures. The S-Master 16 watt amplifier ensures it can fill a large room with sound, too.
SMART TV JUST GOT SMARTER WITH ONE-FLICK ENTERTAINMENT
Integrating smart functionality within TV is more seamless than ever with Sony's 2014 TV range. A brand new style of user interface makes accessing smart content more intuitive and less obtrusive. Rather than the range of smart apps dominating the entire screen, they can now be viewed along the bottom of the screen, whilst still watching whatever's being shown on the TV. Linking in to this, Tweet View shows a discreet Twitter feed on the screen, letting you watch and Tweet simultaneously. Taking this one stage further, the optional One-Flick touchpad (RMFED004 - not supplied) controls most functions at the swipe of a finger.
MASSIVE RANGE OF SMART CONTENT WITH THE SONY ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK
At the heart of the Sony KDL50W829B's networking ability is the Sony Entertainment Network (SEN). This gives access to a massive range of apps, including the highly popular YouTube, Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, Twitter, Facebook and many more. In addition to an application based browser for the most well known sites, the KDL-50W829B also comes with a web browser for full Internet access (display of embedded video may be restricted). This Sony TV is also DLNA compliant meaning that you can stream data from your laptop, PC or NAS drive device. Even better, streaming from your home network hub can be via Ethernet cable or the built-in Wi-Fi connection. Thanks to smartphone apps for iPhone or Android, you can take control of the Sony with your phone's comprehensive touch screen.
New and exclusive to this year's Sony models is Football Mode. This automatically adjusts the sound settings to enhance the roar of the crowd; making you feel part of the action. You can also browse football videos from YouTube and the FIFA website with ease.
FREEVIEW HD AND SCREEN MIRRORING
With Freeview HD built-in, there's no need for an HD set-top box. Freeview HD also ensures you get the best from the HD screen, giving more depth and detail to TV programmes. Screen Mirroring lets you watch what's on your mobile or tablet, on the big screen - wirelessly (Screen Mirroring Miracast requires a Wi-Fi network and Miracast certified smartphone. Smartphone firmware update may be required). SCART and component inputs also make it flexible enough to add older components you may have.
UNDERSTATED GOOD LOOKS AND VERSATILE STAND
The TV unit's design is every bit as stylish and subtle as you'd expect from Sony, with long-lasting appeal. With its contrasting, brushed aluminium finish and narrow bezel, this particular Sony 50" TV is one of the most elegant in its class. Matching this is a unique and mirror-finish flexible stand. Standing out from the more usual stand, this elegant design makes the whole TV look less intrusive in your room. It's also immensely practical as the stand can also be used as a basic wall bracket for the TV.
For a fully equipped 3D TV with comprehensive Smart technology and sleek design, the Sony KDL50W829B is at the top of its game.
