|Sony introduces its first OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) TV, the XEL-1 11-inch OLED Digital TV. It brags a 3 millimeter (about the same thickness as three credit cards) thin panel and provides unparalleled picture quality with amazing Contrast, dazzling Brightness, exceptional color reproduction, and a rapid Response Time. The XEL-1 provides excellent performance in key picture quality categories. Its OLED technology has the capacity to completely turn off Pixels when reproducing black, resulting in more outstanding dark scene detail and a Contrast Ratio of 1,000,000:1. OLED creates unsurpassed color expression and detail and makes possible rapid response times for smooth and natural reproduction of fast moving content such as sports. The XEL-1 comes with the latest connectivity options including two HDMI inputs, a Digital tuner, and a Memory Stick media slot for viewing high-Resolution photos.
XEL-1 is not truly an HDTV. Its 960 x 540-pixel resolution is insufficient to properly carry the HD label. Nonetheless, the XEL-1 is capable of accepting HDTV sources at incoming resolution levels up to 1080p, scaling them down to fit the native pixel array of its screen. Together with displaying high-definition programs, it has a built-in digital TV tuner placed into the TV's desktop base that can handle off-air digital broadcasts pulled in by antenna including any unscrambled channels coming over the digital cable line. It is energy-efficient in that OLED technology provides a more efficient means of utilizing light which is generated by the organic material itself instead of an always on backlight. Likewise, it consumes no power when elements are in their “off” state.
