The S4000 series showcases Sony’s innovative new ‘draw the LINE’ design concept. This beautifully inspired, pared-down styling philosophy enhances the total TV viewing experience without distracting from what’s on the screen. The cabinet features a deep piano black finish, with clean, understated lines complemented by gently-rounded curves. There’s also a swivel base that allows instant screen angle adjustment to suit viewers anywhere in the room.
The S4000 series delivers pristine, detail-packed images with any HD source, including Blu-ray Disc™ players, PLAYSTATION®3 or Handycam® HD camcorders by Sony. There’s also an integrated DVB-C/DVB-T tuner1 for enjoying standard definition TV broadcasts.
The largest (40-inch) screen size model features a 1080p Full HD panel. It’s complemented by latest-generation BRAVIA™ ENGINE 2 signal processing technology for pictures with breathtaking detail, contrast and true-to-life colour. Other HD Ready models (26/32/37-inch) offer superb image quality thanks to BRAVIA™ ENGINE technology. The LCD panel offers a very high dynamic contrast ratio of up to 33000:1 ensuring deep, cinema-like blacks plus sparkling highlights.
24p True Cinema™ mode (40-inch) displays movies from Blu-ray Discs™ at the correct frame rate as intended for theatrical presentation. This ensures a more authentic home cinema experience, with the action playing at exactly the right speed as the director intended.
BRAVIA™ Theatre Sync activates your complete home theatre system with a single touch of your DVD or Blu-ray Disc™ player’s ‘Play’ button. BRAVIA™ Sync (40-inch) also allows simple on-screen control of other devices like connected Handycam® camcorders using your television’s remote.
All models offer three HDMI sockets, allowing one-cable connection with a wide range of HD sources including PLAYSTATION®3, Blu-ray Disc™ players and Handycam® HD camcorders.
“The gently curved lines of the BRAVIA™ S4000 offer a fresh new take on styling that enhances any living room”, says George Damigos, General Manager, Marketing, TV Operations Europe, Sony Europe. “Looks aside, the S4000 series is a great value way for everyone to enjoy fabulous HD pictures and sound without compromising on serious features and performance.”
