Sony 46- and 52-inch BRAVIA ZX5 wireless HDTVs stream 1080p
Sony chose today to announce its BRAVIA ZX5 wireless HDTV line in Japan, the update to its ZX1 series. The 46- and 52-inch wireless models each come with a TV Station hub that contains all of the physical inputs. This allows the displays to be completely wireless. While the ZX1 could only stream 1080i resolution video, the ZX5 bumps it up to 60 Hz wireless HD format or 1080p resolution at 60 frames per second. The display also manages the newer 240 Hz refresh rate and LED-backlighting. The TV Station hub has four HDMI slot, a pair of D5 component equivalent ports, a pair of RCA jacks, and single S-video and VGA slots. An Ethernet connection is also built in, enabling DLNA streaming and internet video streaming. Both models should ship in the United States sometime in the future, but for now it's a sure thing both models will ship in Japan for $4937 and $5581, respectively, on November 20.
