|Sony XBR8 was nominated for deletion. The debate was closed on 24 August 2011 with a consensus to merge. Its contents were merged into Bravia (brand). The original page is now a redirect to here. For the contribution history and old versions of the redirected article, please see its history; for its talk page, see here.|
|Text from this version of Sony XBR8 was copied or moved into BRAVIA. The former page's history now serves to provide attribution for that content in the latter page, and it must not be deleted so long as the latter page exists. The former page's talk page can be accessed at Talk:Sony XBR8.|
Not relevant to the product whatsoever. I don't see mention of avertisments on the Acer Travelmate laptop page, or the Jacobs Fruit Shortcake page. Delete that section or I will. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:51, 15 July 2008 (UTC)
The advertisements of the BRAVIA TVs is very unique and probably quite important to the overall brand. It's definitely worth a mention in the article. Unlike adverts for Acer Travelmates or Jacobs Fruit Shortcakes, the BRAVIA adverts definitely stick in people's minds.Jackster (talk) 21:16, 12 October 2008 (UTC) ---
- I also find advertisment section too big and inappropriate for encyclopedia. I'd rather read about bravia features, etc. I'd remove the section. 22.214.171.124 (talk) 17:44, 19 February 2009 (UTC)
The name is used in all Sony HD LCDs in North America? What about Europe? The name is equally widespread in the United Kingdom to my knowledge.
Burn-in info should be posted.
- Burn-in affects virtually all old LCDs. It's not any more prevalent in Sony BRAVIAs than in any other television. And since BRAVIAs use the latest technology, it should be even less occurent. (Myscrnnm 18:26, 1 April 2007 (UTC))
- Burn-in on LCDs is a myth. It is in fact a lock of a pixel in the on state. Just run "snow" or buy a special DVD to play which will activate every pixel on and off and clear any problems. Takes a few minutes to rid. Now plasmas DO burn. 126.96.36.199 00:39, 10 October 2007 (UTC)
At least, where I live (Santiago, Chile), Bravia is used to call the Sony LCD TV's.
- All Sony LCD televisions in the United States have also been rebranded as BRAVIA. (Myscrnnm 18:26, 1 April 2007 (UTC))
The ad should have its own page.
I think we should have a table for lining up the equivalent Japan/US/European models. Currently the article talks about the various Japan models, but the reader has no idea how these apply to the US/European models. I found this thread that appears to list some of the equivalent models http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=893637&page=28 they someone states:
- Japan X7000 series = US 70" XBR3 Series = Europe X3500
- Japan X5050 series = US XBR5 Series = Europe X3500
- Japan X5000 series = US XBR4 Series = Europe X3000
- Japan W5000 series = US W3000 Series = Europe W3000
- Japan V5000 series = US V3000 Series = Europe V3000
- Japan V3000 series = US S3000 Series = Europe TBD?

I have removed the following section: However, all HDMI has the HDCP content protection system built-in and this will degrade resolution of the display should the HDCP detect the presence of an unauthorized device. This limits the devices which deliver high definition TV content to those which are unable to record or otherwise duplicate protected content.
Reason: as much as I hate DRM, the fact is that the display is a sink, and never issues orders to degrade anything. That problem originates at the content source, not the display!
The HDMI display input is totally happy with displaying unprotected content in full resolution. It is the HDMI *output* on, for example, an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray device that will degrade its output if it is displeased with the results of its attempt to handshake with the monitor. The monitor never mandates a drop in resolution, because it does not act as a source of content in the first place! The way the original paragraph is worded suggests that perhaps the BRAVIA will make the picture blurry in the event of a DRM failure, this is simply not so.Zaphraud (talk) 03:49, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
I believe the operating system on Bravia is Linux while the GUI is Xross Media Bar. Can someone confirm this? http://products.sel.sony.com/opensource/source_tv.shtml#2008.3 Murali (talk) 11:43, 3 June 2009 (UTC)
I sent an email to Fallon UK, requesting the details of the BRAVIA commercials and this is the info they sent me...
Director – Nicolai Fugslig
Launched in the UK on Sunday November 6th 2005, 4pm with an epic 2’30” version ‘roadblocking’ an entire commercial break in the Chelsea v. Manchester United coverage on Sky Sports. Twelve streets were closed off across the 3 day shoot. Ten giant cannons, each able to hold 5,000 balls, were built to fire the balls high into the sky to maximise bouncing. Huge cranes were also employed to empty tens of thousands of balls in skips from a great height. Incredibly no computer graphics were required to create the effect – everything was shot in camera. It was all done for real.
Director - Jonathan Glazer
Airdate - Tuesday 17th October 2006, 8.35 ITV1 Man Utd vs FC Copenhagen
70,000 litres of exploding paint
358 single bottle bombs
33 sextuple air cluster bombs
22 triple hung cluster bombs
22 double mortars
358 meters of weld
330 meters of steel pipe
57km of copper wire
Director - Frank Budgen
Aired 5th October 2007 at 9pm, Channel 4, Ugly Betty, 90-second spot
2.5 tones of plasticine on set
189 2" bunnies
150 1" cubes
10ft x20ft purple wave
30ft giant rabbit.
40 animators working through 4 hours generated 4 seconds of footage.
40 animators working on the same scene had never been attempted before.
Digital Reality Creation Multi-Function
Would a section on Digital Reality Creation Multi-Function be appropriate? It is a feature of some of the BRAVIA Engine processing systems. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 20:06, 17 May 2010 (UTC)
File:Bravia VPL-VW200.jpg Nominated for Deletion
|An image used in this article, File:Bravia VPL-VW200.jpg, has been nominated for deletion at Wikimedia Commons in the following category: Deletion requests October 2011
Don't panic; a discussion will now take place over on Commons about whether to remove the file. This gives you an opportunity to contest the deletion, although please review Commons guidelines before doing so.
The article states that "It appears that units manufactured through November 2005 for sale in Asia and North America contained a software bug that prevented the device from powering up/down after 1200 hours (2^32 milliseconds)."
However, 2^32 milliseconds is not 1200 hours, but approximately 150,000 hours. I am removing the figure of 2^32, which is not found in the provided source. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 07:04, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
