Talking about audio, the sound on the new Bravia TV comes directly from the display, the technology Sony calls Acoustic Surface. The approach allows Sony to produce a wide sound along with image synchronization. Taking advantage of the OLED s backlight-less structure, Sony developed a new Acoustic Surface sound technology. Thanks to the ingenious design, the entire screen resonates with rich sound emanating directly from the screen itself, Sony says.
