Bright ideas enhance picture quality while lowering energy use
The KDL-32EX40B is a bundle of bright ideas. Picture quality for Blu-ray discs and other high-def sources is sensational. Non-HD sources look crisp and clean, too, thanks to Sony's latest BRAVIA Engine™ 3 video processing. To ensure optimum picture quality at all times, built-in sensors automatically adjust the screen's brightness and color based on your room's lighting — which also lowers energy use. And having the Blu-ray player built into the TV saves power, too, while also reducing component and cable clutter.

Connect to other HD sources — and to the Web
Three HDMI inputs let you enjoy the best possible picture from high-def satellite and cable TV receivers, HD game consoles, and more. Connect this Sony to your broadband Internet service and you can use the TV's remote to surf 25+ web "channels" in the comfort of your living room. Prefer not to run a network cable? Just add Sony's USB Wi-Fi® adapter.

    Video Features

    NTSC/ATSC/QAM Tuners: The TV is equipped with an analog NTSC tuner, a digital ATSC/8VSB tuner, and a digital QAM tuner for receiving unscrambled digital cable channels. It is not CableCARD compatible. You do not need to connect an external HDTV set-top box in order to receive High-Definition programming.

    Native Resolution: The KDL-32EX40B has a full HD native resolution of 1920 x 1080 with over 2 million pixels (more than twice the pixels of 720p HDTV). The TV's four HDMI inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i, 1080p and 1080/24p signals, and the two component video inputs can accept 480i, 480p, 720p, 1080i and 1080p signals. All video signals from standard definition and high definition are upconverted to 1080p.

    Bravia Engine 3 Technology: Bravia Engine 3 is the newest fully digital video processor from Sony. It uses a collection of enhanced algorithms to significantly reduce noise, enhance overall image detail, and optimize contrast so every scene produces sharp, vibrant, life-like images.

    HD Video Inputs: The Sony Bravia KDL-40EX700 provides High Definition HDMI and component video inputs.

    • 3 HDMI (ver.1.4) Inputs: The KDL-40EX700 features three HDMI 1.4 inputs (1 Rear/2 Side). The HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) terminals provide an uncompressed, all-digital audio/video interface between this TV and any HDMI-equipped A/V equipment.. The HDMI input will accept 1080 (60/24Hz), 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The rear HDMI input shares a 3.5mm audio jack with the television's PC input. With an HDMI-to-DVI cable, you can connect the TV to a DVI-equipped A/V component. When connecting to a DVI-equipped component, the 3.5mm audio input is used and separate minijack audio cable must be connected.
    • 2 Component Video Inputs: The two rear-panel component video inputs will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. If needed, Component Video 1 can be used as a composite video input instead.

    ARC (Audio Return Channel) Function: The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver or surround audio controller, increasing system flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. The ARC function enables digital output of sound using the television's HDMI In 1 port and can only be operated when the TV is connected to an audio receiver that also supports the ARC function. When the Input Source of the television is the TV (antenna), the ARC function allows audio from the TV to be heard through a connected AV receiver via the television's HDMI 1 input. The audio is sent from the TV to your receiver via a single HDMI cable without the need for a separate optical cable.

    Note: When connecting a digital audio system that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC) technology, connect to HDMI IN 1 with an HDMI cable. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

    24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.

    Ambient Sensor: The television's Ambient Sensor automatically adjusts the picture color based on your room's lighting, so you get a natural looking picture whether you are watching TV late at night or during the day.

    LightSensor Technology: The television's integrated LightSensor technology automatically increases or decreases the level of brightness of the TV's backlight based on your room's lighting conditions. When you dim the lights to watch a movie, the TV's sensor dims the backlight, which also helps reduce unnecessary power consumption.

    Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE): The televisions Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast distinction for the darker picture scenes. The ACE can be set to High, Medium, Low, or Off.

    Screen Modes: You can choose from the following Screen Modes:

    • 4:3 Source:
      • Wide Zoom: Enlarges the picture to fill a 16:9 screen, preserving the original picture as much as possible.

    MPEG Noise Reduction: This feature reduces the picture noise in MPEG-compressed videos. This is effective when viewing a DVD or digital broadcast. You can set the level of noise reduction to High, Medium, Low, or Off.

    Advanced Video Settings: In addition to the Picture mode, the Advanced Video Settings menu also features the following:

    • Gamma: Adjusts the balance between bright and dark areas of the picture.
    • Clear White: Emphasizes white and light colors. It can be set to High, Low, or Off.

    • Black Corrector: Enhances black areas of the picture for stronger contrast. The Black Corrector can be set to High, Medium, Low, or Off.
    • Auto Light Limiter: Reduces glare such as in scenes where the entire screen is white.

    Digital Audio Output: The rear-panel Optical digital output connects to the optical digital input of your digital audio equipment which is PCM/Dolby Digital compatible.

    Integrated Blu-ray Player

    Built-in Blu-ray Disc Player: The BRAVIA EX40B Series HDTV features an integrated Blu-ray disc player. The disc slot is located on the right-hand side of the LCD TV.

    Disc Compatibility: The built-in Blu-ray disc player is compatible with many disc types:

    • Blu-ray: BD-ROM, BD-R (ver.1.1/1.2/1.3), BD-RE (ver.2.1)
    • CD: CD-Audio, CD-ROM, CD-R/RW, SACD

    Note: The TV has a region code located on the rear of the unit and will only play BD/DVD discs labeled with identical region codes or multi-region codes. The built-in Blu-ray player is Blu-ray region A and DVD region 1.

    Copy Protection: Blu-ray Disc uses the Advanced Access Content System (AACS) to prevent unauthorized recording of copyrighted material.

    Blu-ray Disc Overview: Blu-ray Disc (BD) is a new high-definition disc format designed to take advantage of today's high quality HDTVs. The resolution is up to 1920 x 1080 (1080p) and the data transfer rate is up to 54 mbps. Blu-ray Disc discs and players offer several advantages over the standard DVD format:

    • Better picture quality: Blu-ray Disc is a true high-definition format offering video at 720p, 1080i, or 1080p resolution. While standard DVDs look very good on an HDTV, they don't provide a high-definition signal (not even when you use an up-converting DVD player). Blu-ray Disc delivers an extraordinarily sharp, clean, detailed picture, with deeper, richer colors.
    • Better sound quality: In addition to the same multi-channel sound formats you're accustomed to with DVD (Dolby Digital and DTS), Blu-ray Disc offers Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS-HD Master Audio, DTS-HD High Resolution, and uncompressed 7.1 channel PCM. An HDMI connection to a compatible A/V receiver is required to enjoy these high-res formats.
    • Much greater storage capacity: What makes Blu-ray Disc's superior picture and sound possible is the much higher storage capacity of Blu-ray Disc discs. A single-layer Blu-ray Disc can hold 25 gigabytes of data, over five times the amount a standard DVD can hold. Dual-layer Blu-ray Discs hold 50 gigabytes, which equates to nine hours of High Definition or 23 hours of Standard Definition video, plus high-resolution multi-channel audio and the added features and material that require multiple discs with standard DVD.
    • Compatibility with your current disc collections: To ensure backward-compatibility with your existing library of discs, Blu-ray Disc players use a dual-laser mechanism: a blue laser for playing high-definition Blu-ray Discs, and a conventional red laser for playing DVDs and audio CDs.

    Note: As Blu-Ray technology continues to evolve, new disc types with enhanced functionality will become available. In order for you to enjoy this new functionality, you will likely be required to update the firmware in your player. These firmware updates will become available for downloading from the Internet via the rear panel Ethernet terminal.

    Playable File Types: The integrated Blu-ray player supports the following audio/video file types recorded on to DVD, CD, and BD discs.

    • Video: MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG4/AVC, WMV9, and AVCHD
    • Photo: JPEG
    • Music: MP3, AAC, WMA, and LPCM

    Note: The integrated Blu-ray player can recognize up to 5 folders and 500 files per folder.

    BonusView: The BonusView feature provides picture-in-picture capability with select Blu-ray Disc titles. You can view addition content (such as director/actor commentary) in a small display window while the movie is playing.

    BD-Live: BD-Live technology allows you to download and stream bonus content such as additional scenes, shorts, trailers, movie-based games, and more from a broadband Internet and home network connections (fees may apply). The TV features an Ethernet port and WiFi connectivity (optional adapter required) to connect to the Internet via your home network, and features a built-in 1GB flash memory to download content. The side-panel USB port can be used for additional storage.

    Audio DRC: The built-in Blu-ray player offers three dynamic range compression levels - Auto, Standard, and Wide Range.

    Parental Control: The integrated Blu-ray player offers Parental Control settings to limit BD, DVD, and streamed Internet video according to the age of the users. You can also Allow or Block all unrated Internet video. The control settings are protected by a custom 4-digit password. You can also lock the disc tray to prevent it from being opened by mistake.

    PC/USB/Network Functions

    PC Compatible: A side-panel 15-pin HD15 jack allows you to connect your personal computer to the display. There is also a corresponding stereo mini-jack (3.5mm) for the computer's audio signal.

The TV supports the following PC resolutions - VGA (640 x 480), SVGA (800x 600), XGA (1024 x 768), WXGA (1280 x 768/1360 x 768), SXGA (1280 x 1024), and HDTV (1920 x 1080).

    Photomap: By connecting a digital still camera with GPS function to the unit's USB port, you can display a photo with a map of the location where the photo was taken. To use this feature, the TV also has to be connected to the Internet to download map information.
