Advertisments[edit]

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 82.198.140.206 (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. 195.177.212.225 (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. 86.17.211.191 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?

These appear accurate, but I'm wondering if there's a more official place that we can double-check with. --24.127.54.17 (talk) —Preceding comment was added at 23:04, 28 November 2007 (UTC)

Green TV[edit]

For sale in Japan on July 30, Sony's green product, new flat-panel 32-inch TV 150,000 yen (US$ 1,400; € 900) Bravia KDL-32JE1 offers ecological consumers advantages of less energy consumption (70% less a year) than regular models with same image quality. It reduces carbon dioxide emissions totaling 79 kilograms (174 pounds) a year.www.iht.com, Sony develops green flat-panel TV to woo ecological consumersgmanews.tv/story, Sony woos ecological consumers with new flat-panel TV--Florentino floro (talk) 07:41, 17 June 2008 (UTC)


DRM clarification[edit]

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)

M Series[edit]

Updated list with entry level M series (32M4000) —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.79.232.214 (talk) 17:16, 31 December 2008 (UTC)

Operating System[edit]

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)

Commercial Details[edit]

I sent an email to Fallon UK, requesting the details of the BRAVIA commercials and this is the info they sent me...


"Balls"

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.

"Paint"

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

268 mortars

22 double mortars

358 meters of weld

330 meters of steel pipe

57km of copper wire

"Play-Doh"

Director - Frank Budgen

Aired 5th October 2007 at 9pm, Channel 4, Ugly Betty, 90-second spot

2.5 tones of plasticine on set

40 animators

3 weeks

189 2" bunnies

150 1" cubes

10ft x20ft purple wave

30ft giant rabbit.

6 cameras.

40 animators working through 4 hours generated 4 seconds of footage.

40 animators working on the same scene had never been attempted before.

The 60" spot will be constructed of approximately 100,000 stills. AnimatedZebra (talk) 17:01, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Digital Reality Creation Multi-Function[edit]

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 98.199.138.104 (talk) 20:06, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

Advertising[edit]

That section, the first in the article, needs to be moved and trimmed drastically. Drmies (talk) 15:26, 23 March 2012 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: Moved to Bravia (brand) Mike Cline (talk) 18:44, 17 September 2012 (UTC)



BRAVIABravia – Bravia is the common name. It also has a good case for being the primary topic. This result should apply to all the articles using BRAVIA if this move request is successful. Bravia: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8]. BRAVIA: [9]. Marcus Qwertyus (talk) 08:38, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

  • Oppose – Yes, I agree it should not be all caps, but this should have been proposed as a multi-RM is you want to move the disambig page at that title. I'd suggest Bravia (brand) instead. Dicklyon (talk) 05:15, 11 September 2012 (UTC)
  • Support Bravia (brand), per MOS:TM.--Labattblueboy (talk) 20:23, 12 September 2012 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Numerical error[edit]

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 202.164.139.251 (talk) 07:04, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
