The Sony KDL-55V5100 55" Bravia V Series LCD HDTV offers a series of advanced technologies that combine to produce excellent images from a wide range of content possibilities. The HDTV delivers full 1080p resolution to ensure optimal image quality from digital TV, Blu-ray discs, home entertainment systems, digital cameras, camcorders, and other devices.
One key to the unit's high-end performance is Sony's Motionflow 120Hz technology, which produces smoother, sharper motion for sports, gaming, movies, and other action content. The Bravia's 24p True Cinema feature also improves the quality of 24p video sources such as films by displaying them at the 24 fps (frames per second) speed at which they were originally shot. The HDTV's Dynamic Contrast feature yields deeper blacks and fine details in dark areas of the picture.
Compatibility with Bravia Link modules enables you to expand the capabilities of your HDTV by adding a space-saving DVD player, four additional HDMI connections, and wireless control. Additionally, Bravia Sync offers easy connectivity and control of specified Sony camcorders and digital cameras.
To maximize the versatility and entertainment value of the Bravia, Sony has included a full complement of inputs and outputs, allowing convenient hookup of virtually any digital or analog device, including PCs and USB-enabled equipment.
The Bravia features several technologies that not only enhance the viewing experience, but also reduce unnecessary power consumption. LightSensor technology adjusts the HDTV's backlight in response to room lighting conditions, while Dynamic Backlight Control performs a similar function to optimize image quality.

Images from HD sources, such as Blu-ray Disc players and entertainment systems, are rendered in optimal resolution, creating a lifelike viewing experience.
- Smoother, Sharper Action
If you're a fan of fast-action sports, movies, and games, you'll appreciate the smoother, sharper, and more natural motion made possible by the Motionflow 120Hz refresh rate. Gone are the "judder" and blurriness often seen on TVs with a lower 60Hz refresh rate.
