Sony has launched a new TV called the Sony Bravia KDL-40E5. This TV has been deemed to be one of the best TVs of 2009. This new LCD TV by Sony has amazing HD picture quality and this is because of the latest processing engine. The power consumption of this new TV is equal to an average 22-inch LCD TV.
Sony Bravia KDL-40E5 consumes only 97 watts when in use. The lower consumption of power is possible by using two unique ways. Firstly, the backlight system of the television uses the new Hot Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (HCFLs) and other televisions use Cool Cathode Fluorescent Lamps (CCFLs).
Secondly, the TV uses the technology of Presence Sensors that help the television to know whether someone is there in the room or not. This is possible with the body heat and motion technology which turns off the TV picture when there is no one in the room, leaving just the sound running. When the sensor detects the presence of someone then the picture comes back on.
Sony has brilliantly managed to lower the consumption of power without affecting the picture quality. This big step taken by Sony may encourage the other manufactures like Panasonic and LG to make TVs that also consume less energy.
