Sony's New Desktop PCs Include Blu-ray Technology

By Arvind Arora, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Sony, a company that develops and sells electronic products for consumer and broadcast markets, reportedly is launching launch three new desktop models: VAIO JS, LV and RT.
The company says it has integrated slim, stylish LCD panels in the desktops, which are designed in compact sizes to save space and suit a wide range of computing needs. Those needs range from simple word processing to editing high-definition video content. The new models include Blu-ray disc players to help consumers leverage the potential of that optical medium.

Xavier Lauwaert, product manager for VAIO product marketing at Sony Electronics, said that the new all-in-ones address all the entertainment and computing needs of the users, as they are a combination of an HDTV, Blu-ray Disc player and PC in a fashion-forward, clutter-free design.
The VAIO JS desktop is a compact desktop that features a 20.1-inch (diagonal) LCD display based upon the XBRITE-ECO LCD technology by Sony, which delivers richer and enhanced image quality.
A Blu-ray Disc ROM optical drive is available with the VAIO JS, which deploys BD-Live, a Blu-ray feature through which the users can access extra HD content through the Internet. Apart from a microphone and web cam, the VAIO JS is equipped with a pre-installed version of the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system, saves energy and makes less noise, says the company. The VAIO JS is available in black, silver and pink colors with its prices beginning from $1,000.
Another desktop being offered by Sony is the VAIO LV High-Definition PC/TV, that fulfills all the entertainment needs of the users. The 24-inch WUXGA (1920x1200) widescreen high-definition screen based upon the XBRITE-FullHD LCD technology offers extremely clear and sharp images quality.
The VAIO LV also may be equipped with a re-writable Blu-ray Disc optical drive that helps users view, record, store and play back HD content of their choice. The desktop features functionalities of a Digital Video Recorder also, and has got a storage capacity of one terabyte that can be used for storing HD content upto 100 hours of duration.
