This is HD done the Sony way. The 42" KDL-42V4100 flat panel HDTV brings 1080p picture quality home with amazing, Sony-exclusive features like the XMB (Xross Media Bar®) with 3D graphics, DMex capability so you can add functionality to your TV, and picture quality technologies like ACE (Advanced Contrast Enhancer) and BRAVIA Engine 2™ that make images come alive. Add to that a sophisticated, piano black design and 24p capability for getting the most out of Blu-ray Disc™ and DVD movies, and you have a television that exceeds your expectations. There are also four HDMI™ inputs and three other HD-capable connections, so there is ample room for expansion.
