BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™
As a leader in products with HDMI connectivity, Sony has created BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™ technology to go beyond simple audio and video transmission.

With “One Touch Play,” operations that took several steps have been reduced to one. Press the PLAY button on the remote, watch the A/V receiver turn on, then the DVD player power on and start to play, finally the BRAVIA television turns on and switches to the correct video input. Simple...Easy...BRAVIA® Theatre Sync™.
