Sony 100” BRAVIA 4K Ultra HD Screens Land in Australia
Remember when a 40-inch plasma was considered a “big-screen” TV? It actually wasn't all that long ago. Well, Sony has smashed that out of the park now with its new 100-inch FW100BZ40J, now available in Australia.
Sony, who has been producing class-leading 4K and 8K LED, OLED, and Native 4K Projection display products for many years now, thinks the time is now for large-format screens in homes.
Considerably sized with a physical panel size of 2260mm wide and 1297mm high and weighing over 90kg, it certainly isn't for the faint-hearted.
Sony's BZ range of Sony display products are generally used in Corporate, education, and Business solutions environments. The Pro level panel here is for the first time, being offered to the residential market.
The 100-inch BZ40J deploys Full Array Local Dimming LED tech plus Sony's new XR Cognitive processor from the consumer line, which brings this panel to life. This high-performance panel utilises androidTV smarts for streaming services which should cover the majority of your needs, but without a TV tuner built-in, you'll need to look to Fetch or Foxtel.
Peak brightness output is rated at an eye-popping 940 (Cd/m2), perfect for modern open plan spaces with many windows, excellent daytime viewing, and negating the need for light-controlled rooms. This model is already proving popular for penthouse apartments and other large multi-purpose living spaces. Sports lovers will find this screen will put them right in the action with an immersive form factor.
Being a Pro market product, it is equipped with compatibility with Control systems and backed by Sony's full 3-year warranty and support.
Don't expect to find it for sale online or at your local JB or Harvey Norman. The Sony 100-inch BRAVIA BZ40J will be sold exclusively via local specialist dealers only, who will handle the complete delivery and installation process.
Available now, Sony's 100-inch FW100BZ40J sells for $24,995 excluding delivery and installation.
