Sony KDL-32EX420 overview

  • 1Description

The Sony KDL-32EX420 32" BRAVIA Multi-System LED TV is usually purchased for its ability to receive local programming anywhere in the world. But take a closer look and you'll see that it is a capable and versatile HDTV with features you're not likely to find in other sets.

For starters, the KDL-32EX420 delivers HD in 720p resolution for an incredibly crisp picture. The set incorporates Sony's X-Reality Picture Engine for deep, vibrant, finely detailed images. 24p True Cinema ensures that your Blu-ray movies will look like they do in theaters, without judder. Couple this with Live Color Technology with Advanced Contrast Enhancer for extremely sharp and noise-free images and you've got an HDTV that produces gorgeous pictures you'll never tire of watching.

But what's a great picture without sound to match? Sony includes multiple sound modes, including Dynamic/Standard/Clear Voice and surround sound to ensure that you're a part of the action, no matter what type of program you're watching. It's all delivered through a pair of speakers that pump out 20W (10W x 2) of power for room-filling sound.

Extensive connectivity, which includes a full complement of inputs and outputs (including USB), makes the KDL-32EX420 an ideal choice to serve as the hub of your home entertainment system. Four HDMI inputs ensure that your set is HD-capable for years to come.

Despite the numerous options which this set provides it's a snap to access all of its features through its graphic user interface and full-featured remote control. For a great HD picture, world-wide compatibility, and features that stack up to those of any other, the KDL-32EX420 is hard to beat.

High Definition (720p) Picture Quality
High Definition or HD technology creates incredible picture quality with around four times more pixels than Standard Definition images (typically used in television broadcasts), as well as utilizing full digital surround sound and native widescreen formatting. Recording in HD also offers clarity and quality superior to film but with the flexibility of digital video i.e. editing on a computer; durability; instant access to recordings; and far cheaper recording media. Most HD standards also include the ability to capture full digital surround sound (Dolby AC-3/Digital) and extra data such as content protection and program data
Edge LED Backlight
Using Edge LED backlight technology results in a much thinner and lighter BRAVIA when compared to conventional direct-type backlight system televisions. Typically used for small to mid-sized computer monitors, Sony has adapted this new type of backlighting for LED TVs. The result is a more efficient light transmission process and lower power consumption without any compromise to picture quality
Skype Ready
Make calls to other Skype users or even regular telephone numbers, even as you watch your favorite shows. Keep in touch with friends and family easily by making and receiving Internet voice and video calls from your television. All you need is a compact microphone/camera to make free Skype-to-Skype calls and low-cost SkypeOut calls to regular telephone numbers. Skype calls require a dedicated Sony microphone/camera, CMU-BR100 (not supplied). Skype-to-Skype calls are free. SkypeOut calls carry additional charges. Skype functions require a home network and broadband Internet connection. Supports half duplex audio with the following codecs: G.711, G.729, and SILK (8 kHz, 12 kHz, and 16 kHz). Supports H.264 video at 500 kbps, SD image quality 640 x 480 at 30 fps. Communication speed depends on network environment
BRAVIA Internet Video
With BRAVIA Internet Video, your television is now a true all-in-one entertainment center that allows you to access your favorite video websites straight on your BRAVIA. Get quick access to YouTube,, BlipTV, Singing Fool, and many more sites that will keep you entertained for hours on end. BRAVIA Internet Video serves as a gateway to Internet content, delivering a variety of on-demand entertainment straight to your TV. By making a broadband Internet connection, you can enjoy video content, including movies and cartoons
Wi-Fi Ready
This feature enables you to use the BRAVIA Internet TV and widgets without any additional wires and lets you experience true freedom from cumbersome and messy cables
Live Color Technology
Live Color can reproduce colors more vividly with an image processor that uses an algorithm specially developed by Sony. You can even adjust color vividness for optimal image quality with four different options available. With Live Color, you'll be able to experience the power of vivid colors and impressive pictures with finer color tuning
Advanced Contrast Enhancer
By reproducing fine levels of gradation and dynamically controlling the contrast of every image, the Advanced Contrast Enhancer delivers superior light, mid and dark tones in every scene. Now you can enjoy those deep dark scenes without sacrificing the brightness of the lighter elements
X-Reality Picture Engine
Don't let your enjoyment be hampered by low-resolution source videos. With Sony's exclusive X-Reality Engine, everything you watch - from HD movies to web videos - is analyzed and selectively processed to give clean, clear, and lifelike pictures. While 3 unique noise reduction features work their magic prior to upscaling, Sony's Intelligent Image Enhancer divides the signal into four characteristics - texture, outline, contrast, and color - and optimizes each one individually for more vivid and distinct pictures
MPEG Noise Reduction
MPEG Noise Reduction automatically reduces block noise and improves the edges of characters while at the same time, successfully suppressing noise that usually appears at high contrast edges. Enjoy crisp, noise-free images with sharp edges on BRAVIA series televisions
24p True Cinema
While conventional televisions (and most DVDs) operate at 50Hz, modern film-makers record their films onto Blu-Ray Disc using 24 frames per second (24Hz, or 24p). With 24p True Cinema, your BRAVIA will automatically recognize these films and select the correct format for playback so you see and hear the film just as in the theater
Picture Mode
Lets you select the most optimal picture mode - dynamic, standard, soft and personal - to match your viewing environment
3D Comb Filter
A group of circuits inside the television that improve analog broadcasts by completely separating the information about light and dark (called luminance) from color (called chrominance)
Sound Mode
This smart feature lets you select the ideal sound mode - dynamic, drama, soft and personal, giving you more realistic sound effects to further enhance your viewing enjoyment
S-Master Digital Amplifier produces superb accuracy, clear separation of signals, and balanced sound reproduction using a digital-to-digital process. They are designed to be highly efficient, producing minimal heat while taking up about a quarter of the space of conventional amplifiers. Sony's S-Master accepts all digital signals in digital and cleanly amplifies the signal in "digital" without needing to convert it into analog first. Using a simplified signal path and full digital processing, the audio signal is taken directly from DSP stage without additional D/A conversion. This keeps the purity of the digital audio signal right up to the final speaker output, reproducing a realistic sound experience just like the original recording
S-Force Front Surround 3D
After years invested in developing totally virtual surround sound technology, Sony has created S-Force front surround. This amazing technology utilizes a complex process of sound delay to bring a surrounding sound atmosphere to any space whatsoever from just two front speakers
Watch as your entire entertainment system comes alive with the push of a single button. With BRAVIA Sync, each entertainment device synchronizes itself with the others so that a single command can bring every system online and play your favorite programs instantly
Remote Keyboard (VAIO)
Easy TV control and text input.
