The new SXRD-based Grand WEGA models feature industry-leading full HD 1080p resolution, HDMI™ inputs with 1080p capability and come in screen sizes of 50, 55 and 60 inches.
"With their SXRD pedigree, these latest Grand WEGA models build on the market leadership established last year by the 50" and 60" Grand WEGA SXRD models," said Robin Powell, Senior Marketing Manager, Display Products, Audio Visual/Information Technology Group, Sony of Canada Ltd. "The investment made by individual Canadians in these products are future-proofed, as the SXRD-based Grand WEGA TVs are the hub of Sony's HD World universe, enabling them to view HD content from numerous Sony HD sources, including HD Handycam camcorders, the Blu-ray Disc ROM BDP-S1 player, the VAIO AR-190 notebook PC or any Cyber-shot digital camera.
"These latest SXRD-based Grand WEGA TVs offer incredible resolution, bright pictures and vibrant colours like no other."
