CES 2011 Battle of the 3D and HDTVs; Sony’s XBR-HX929 and Panasonic’s VT30 Lead the Pack
The CES 2011 was practically a warzone between two of the largest television manufacturers on the planet, Sony and Panasonic, as they show off their lineup of 3D and HDTVs that leaves us mesmerized to say the least.
Sony and Panasonic, two of the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, didn’t leave a corner unturned as each of their presentation for their 3D and HDTV lineup was definitely a sight beyond anything we’ve ever seen yet. And what really caught our attention was their flagship models, the Sony XBR-HX929 and Panasonic’s VT30. And while they dish each other out by having the fanciest features and sharp designs, we just couldn’t decide who’d win this battle. Although Sony was pretty confident that by 2013, they will be the number one manufacturer in the entire world. Panasonic, and definitely other brands, would not let it happen anytime soon. Panasonic continues the streak of becoming the best.
Panasonic VT30 From the get go, the 3D visuals of Panasonic’s VT30 series were simply stunning. But the overall aesthetics of the plasma television leave less to be desired (something Panasonic has been having trouble with for ages). The VT30 series also comes with a little tablet called Vierra Connect, which is jampacked with apps that will keep you entertained throughout the entire experience. The Vierra Connect also allows you to pause certain television shows in case you need to leave your seat, but to whether or not it’s applicable to all shows has yet to be announced and tested.
Sony XBR-HX929 Sony wasn’t kidding in its attempt to become the number one manufacturer by 2013 as it reveals a staggering 27 new sets in the television category. But what really caught our attention was the Sony XBR-HX929, a 3D-ready TV that’s capable of controlling individual LEDs that allow the users to adjust the way they see certain lights and shadows. Thanks to the side-lighting of the LEDs (most of the competition have back lightings), Sony has once again set themselves apart from the rest of the pack.
