The CX520 Series has the new X-Reality picture engine for superior picture quality, as well as, state-of-the art Sony Internet TV features including BRAVIA Internet Video.
X-Reality Picture Engine
Sony’s advanced image processing engine analyses each scene to give optimum colour and contrast.
Enjoy great pictures, no matter the source
Don’t let your enjoyment be hampered by low-resolution source videos. With Sony’s exclusive X-Reality Engine, everything you watch – from HD movies to web videos – is analysed and selectively processed to give clean, clear, and lifelike pictures. While 3 unique noise reduction features work their magic prior to upscaling, Sony’s Intelligent Image Enhancer divides the signal into four characteristics – texture, outline, contrast, and colour – and optimises each one individually for more vivid and distinct pictures.
Make calls to other Skype users or even regular telephone numbers, even as you watch your favourite shows.
Make free video calls over the Internet
Keep in touch with friends and family easily by making and receiving Internet voice and video calls*2 from your television. All you need is a compact microphone/camera to make free Skype-to-Skype calls and low-cost SkypeOut calls to regular telephone numbers.
Connect your TV to your VAIO for seamless navigation.
Easy TV control and text input
Use your VAIO keyboard to control your television and input text quickly and conveniently.
