Sony extends its innovative 2011 range of Blu-ray products

More smart players introduced from Sony - with advanced features and capabilities which redefine the Blu-ray experience

Our new Blu-ray 2.1 home cinema systems

Get ready for the ultimate home entertainment experience with two new 2.1 Blu-ray™ systems from Sony - the BDV-EF200 and BDV-L600.

BRAVIA® Internet Video allows you to browse popular video sharing sites such as YouTube, watch and listen to great BBC programmes from the last seven days on BBC iPlayer, enjoy thousands of movies via LOVEFiLM and access breaking news from Sky News through its dedicated connected TV application – all from the comfort of your sofa.

There’s no need to sacrifice sound quality with a 2.1 home cinema -with S-Force PRO 3D virtual surround sound, IP Noise Reduction technology which gives you impressively sharp images, even from internet content, all that’s lost is unsightly wires.

Each player is equipped with two HDMI® ports for simple, one-cable connection with other HD devices - like set-top boxes and games consoles. The iPod/iPhone dock allows users to listen to music or watch videos anytime. Plus, the new players can be controlled by an iPod touch, iPhone or Android™ smartphone.

The BDV-L600 can be placed horizontally, vertically or mounted on a wall* for easy setup and great audio quality, no matter where you’re sitting.

Experience exceptional Full HD 3D picture quality with the BDP-S780

For the sharpest, most true-to-life picture available in a Blu-ray Disc™ Player, it’s hard to beat the BDP-S780 with 2Dà3D up-conversion. Advanced IP Content Noise Reduction Pro technology smoothes blurry images which delivers a brilliantly crisp, clear view of fuzzy internet videos, blocky streaming movies and low-quality online content. Super Bit Mapping allows remarkably clean, vivid, lifelike images, whether you’re watching Blu-ray™, DVD or low-resolution web video.

Catch up with far-away friends and loved ones with the wi-fi enabled BDP-S780 - make free voice or video calls using Skype™ from the convenience and comfort of your living room on a big, Full HD screen. Smartphones can be used to operate your player or surf the web with the Media Remote application.
