  • 1Description

Energy Guide The Sony KDL40EX520 40" LED TV packs a vast amount of great high-end specs and convenience features into a glossy black display that will look fine in any corner of your house.

Since every room is different, the KDL40EX520 employs LightSensor Technology to automatically calibrate the optimal settings to match the color and light level of your specific space. The combination of Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) and full 1080p HD makes the KDL40EX520 a remarkable TV by any standard. But that's just the beginning. The display brings your content alive with X-Reality Engine. The astonishing effects will immediately grab your attention and bring your entertainment experience to the next dimension.

The KDL40EX520's wide connectivity, which includes 4 HDMI connections, enables 1-cable connection of your A/V components. The USB inputs allow you to share JPEG slide shows and videos with your friends. 24p True Cinema Technology displays HD movies just as they were shot in 24p (24 fps) for an authentic theater experience at home.

In addition to all of the above, the KDL40EX520 is loaded with convenience features like a sleep timer, parental control, closed captioning, A/V input labeling, and favorite channel programming. Lastly, Energy Star compliance means that you'll be saving money while helping to save the environment.

Full HD 1080p Resolution
Experience amazing Full HD 1080p picture quality, the highest at-home resolution. Take full advantage of HD sources like a Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation3 gaming console via the 16:9 wide screen panel (1920 x 1080)
Internet Streaming & Connectivity
Internet Streaming: Internet favorites now streaming on your television. In addition to Qriocity, watch hit movies with Netflix, popular TV shows on Hulu Plus or user-generated video on YouTube. You can even listen to personalized music on Pandora. Enjoy the widest selection of internet content at your fingertips.

Skype Ready: Easily connect to family and friends live on your HDTV wherever they are with Skype. Enjoy free high definition Skype-to-Skype video calls from the comfort of your living room. Simply attach the Sony compact microphone/camera (required, sold separately) and see your friends on the big screen - it's unlike any experience you could get on a PC.

Wi-Fi Ready: Going wireless is easy with the UWA-BR100 Wi-Fi adapter (sold separately). Just plug it in and get ready to stream movies, photos, music and videos straight to your TV from the Internet or your home network.

DLNA Streaming: Access and share photos, videos and music on your TV by streaming them from compatible DLNA device like your PC or Playstation3 system

Faster Start-Up
Quick Start & Viewing feature enables this Sony television to go from 'off' to 'on' 2-3 times faster than previous Sony televisions
BRAVIA Sync Compatible
Conveniently operate and control other BRAVIA Sync compatible devices - including BRAVIA HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players, surround sound systems, Handycam camcorders and Cyber-shot digital still cameras, all with one remote control
Edge LED Backlighting
Experience the next level of picture quality and contrast with Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology. This technology sharpens image contrast giving an amazingly crisp picture you can see. The ultra-thin backlight system allows for a slimmer, sleeker design
Presence Sensor
Save energy when you're not around. The television's built-in motion sensor has the ability to scan the room and detect movement. If the sensor detects no movement it automatically turns off the picture leaving only sound. After more time and no movement, the TV turns itself off minimizing any unnecessary power draw
USB Photos, Videos & Music

X-Reality Engine
