The Evolution Of Television To The New Social Media Experience

Television has come a long way since its introduction in the 1920’s. We’ve gone from black and white with one channel to colour with a few channels to 4K TV high definition with literally hundreds of channels!

Now things have moved on again, with internet connected televisions with built in social media engagement to enhance your viewing experience with friends, or other viewers online.

Sony’s new range of TVs highlight these features perfectly, with integrated streaming and social services in conjunction with traditional ‘over-the-air’ content delivery.

Sony’s X9 Ultra HD TVs are truly the next generation of television hardware, they have an amazing 4K TV display running at a jaw dropping 3840x2160px resolution – attempts to convey this level of detail are hard to get across without sitting in front of one, so I’d recommend getting down to a Sony store and seeing the difference for yourself.

But its in improving the entertainment experience where Sony TVs really come into their own, and show their depth and experience in the home entertainment sector.

  • Effortless remote control – the new Sony remote control has gesture support and an integrated touchpad, allowing you to swipe and flick your hand to navigate and make selections
  • Full HD video camera – want to video call your friends from your sofa via Skype? No problem. Or even better, watch the big game with your friends or family as if they were with you – share your reactions as sporting events or movie climaxes unfold.
  • Social engagement – Sony includes amazing integration of social networking services, beyond the inclusion of popular video streaming services directly on the TV. You can also pull in live information and updates from services like Twitter or Facebook, even on themes based around what you’re currently watching!
