Sony en­ters OLED fray

Warwick Daily News - - WEEKEND - with Ge­off Egan

IF CRICKET sea­son has taught Aus­tralia any­thing it’s about the ben­e­fits of OLED TVs. Thanks Dave Warner. Sony’s first con­sumer OLED TV, the A1E, comes with a screen promis­ing the same great “true black” colour dis­play as the LG TVs cur­rently on the mar­ket. But the A1E doesn’t pro­duce sound like any other TV be­fore it. In­stead of us­ing speak­ers the TV uses a tech­nol­ogy called Acous­tic Sur­face that sounds like the noise is com­ing from the dis­play it­self.

It uses sim­i­lar tech­nol­ogy to LG’s OLED TVs but like other Sony screens the A1E is a smart TV run­ning An­droid. It can con­nect to the in­ter­net and have con­tent cast to it from phones, tablets or PCs and run apps avail­able on the TV’s Google Play store. Price TBA
