Packing in Passive 3D TV, one-touch mirroring and sleek styling, the Sony KDL47W805A offers total entertainment.

PASSIVE 3DTV WITH 2D TO 3D CONVERSION


Passive 3D TV is simpler than the active system but, despite this, in many ways it's superior. For a start, passive 3D TV is considered more comfortable to watch with less flicker. Other technical advantages include a wider viewing angle and brighter images. Then there's the cost and convenience consideration to take into account. The glasses are much cheaper and also considerably lighter to wear. The lack of batteries onboard also means they don't have to be recharged. What's more, with Simulated 3D, you can get the 3D experience with any program you care to watch - whether filmed in 3D or not!

EXCELLENT PICTURE QUALITY WITH X-REALITY PRO AND MOTIONFLOW XR400HZ PROCESSING

Whatever the source, the Sony KDL47W805A offers a top performance. In addition to the bright and realistic LED display with frame dimming, this TV also offers Sony's X-Reality PRO video 'engine'. Whether you're watching content from online or standard definition TV, X-Reality PRO enhances the image, ensuring you get the very best picture quality all of the time. Thanks to Motionflow XR 400Hz processing, 3D images are sharper and 2D has less blur with fast moving action scenes.

IMPROVED SOUND QUALITY

Although no match for a separates home cinema system, the Sony KDL47W805A's built-in audio system is above the class average. This is thanks to using bass reflex speakers that are designed to offer a deeper, fuller sound. With a wider frequency response, this Sony TV avoids the tinny sound that can afflict flat TVs. S-Force Front Surround 3D gives an added dimension to the sound with projection to match the 3D pictures. The S-Master 20 watt amplifier ensures it can fill a large room with sound, too.

YOUR SMARTPHONE DISPLAY ON THE BIG SCREEN IN AN INSTANT WITH SCREEN MIRRORING

Screen Mirroring lets you watch what's on your mobile or tablet, on the big screen - wirelessly. All you need do is swipe your NFC one-touch enabled smartphone against the supplied one-touch remote and the content is instantly transferred to the big screen. Whether its photos, videos or app content, big screen entertainment is just a swipe away.

MASSIVE RANGE OF SMART CONTENT WITH THE SONY ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK

At the heart of the Sony KDL47W805A's networking ability is the Sony Entertainment Network. This gives access to a massive range of apps, including the highly popular YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, Twitter, Facebook and many more. In addition to an application based browser for the most well known sites, the KDL47W805A also comes with Opera web browser for full Internet access (display of embedded video 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. On top of all this, just add a voice control camera and microphone and the KDL47W805A is ready for Skype calls. Thanks to smartphone apps for iPhone or Android, you can take control of the Sony with your phone's comprehensive touch screen.

TRUE SONY STYLE

The TV unit's design is every bit as stylish and subtle as you'd expect from Sony, with long-lasting appeal. The "Sense of Quartz" design is inspired by cut-glass surfaces and gives the KDL47W805A a crisp and fresh look. Matching this is a unique, 'hoop' stand that enhances the Sony's sense of elegance. As a final flourish, the KDL47W805A features an illuminated core that changes colour according to the content being played.

Vivid 3D images matched with superior networking and elegant style - the Sony KDL47W805A has strength all round.
