Everyone enjoys watching the evening news or TV dramas in life-size HD on a big-screen flat panel HDTV. But really, everyone wants to watch something with a little more suspense, a little more intensity, and a whole lot of action. Not all HDTVs, however, can deliver sports and action movies with the same lifelike grandeur everyone is looking for.

Filmed at 30fps, television programming can be easily accommodated by 60fps (or Hz) televisions - each frame is simply doubled to match the 60fps. However, most movies are filmed at 24fps, which doesn’t divide easily into sixty. Accordingly, 60Hz HDTVs must subject 24fps movies to complicated video processing that often causes a stuttery and jerky picture. The Sony KDL-32EX500, however, does something else entirely. It looks to advanced Motionflow 120Hz technology. Capable of playing video back at 120fps?—?a multiple of both 30 and 24?—?Motionflow 120Hz seamlessly reproduces both TV and film content. As a result, you experience smooth, fluid, lifelike motion, even when watching fast-paced action and sports programming.

Also, the Sony KDL-32EX500 LCD HDTV sports a Full HD 1920 x 1080p display resolution. 1080p, as it’s fondly known, is the highest definition panel resolution currently available, and an ideal complement to HD movies on Blu-ray Disc, HD television programming, and HD gaming from sources like the PlayStation3.

First, Sony’s BRAVIA Engine 2 technology offers a fully digital video processor that employs a collection of unique algorithms to significantly reduce video noise and produce sharp, vibrant, lifelike images through which a 1080p-resolution panel reaches its full potential. Second, the KDL-32EX500′s Advanced Contrast Enhancer reproduces improved contrast for deep blacks in darker scenes and fine detail in shadows, revealing all the details that the director intended for everyone to see. Third, an Ambient Sensor automatically adjusts picture color based on lighting conditions in the viewing area, delivering a picture that’s tailored to everyone’s living room. Finally, Sony’s 24p True Cinema technology ensures compatibility with and high-fidelity reproduction of 24fps film-based content.

The Sony KDL-32EX500 is no slouch when it comes to connections either. Realizing that today’s home A/V components aren’t meant to work alone, rather, intended to integrate with each other, allowing for a seamless, interconnected home theater experience, the KDL-32EX500 provides all the connectivity options one might need. Heading the list of A/V connections, of course, are this BRAVIA LCD’s four HDMI inputs. As the only single-cable HD audio and video interface, HDMI offers optimal connectivity to HD sources like Blu-ray Disc players, HD satellites, and HD gaming consoles. Next, a rear-panel PC input allows you to convert the KDL-32EX500′s LCD screen into a giant, 32″ computer monitor. Last, but not least, is the KDL-32EX500′s side USB port. Quickly connect to a thumbdrive, your laptop, or a portable audio player, and access video, photos, and music using this BRAVIA HDTV.

As a leader in products with HDMI connectivity, Sony has created BRAVIA Sync technology to go beyond simple audio and video transmission. When combining the KDL-32EX500 with a select number of other BRAVIA audio and video products, control functions will also be transmitted via the HDMI cable. With “One Touch Play”, operations that took several steps are reduced to one.
