Get ready for HD with this great value BRAVIA TV. Despite being one of the smaller TVs in the range, the KDL-22EX302 packs a big HD entertainment experience. It’s an affordable HD Ready compact LCD TV with a 22″ (56cm) screen, making it the ideal choice for less spacious rooms. And, with its built-in digital TV tuner, you get instant easy access to Freeview TV and radio channels. It features a host of innovative technologies to bring you clearer pictures, sharper sounds and more atmospheric experiences. And even when you’re not watching TV you can switch to Picture Frame Mode and turn your BRAVIA into a work of art by displaying pre-installed images or your own photos.


See things differently with HD Ready

Enjoy your favourite TV shows and movies in clear and detailed High Definition quality. This BRAVIA has a resolution of 768 lines (standard TVs commonly display 576 lines) so your picture will be much crisper and display much more true-to-life clarity. As well as having the capacity to display 1080 HD content by downscaling the image to 720, it features innovative technologies such as intelligent noise reduction for sharper, crisper sound and Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) which dynamically controls the backlight.


Subscription-free, built-in Freeview

To add to your viewing choice, the set has a built-in Freeview TV tuner so you have instant access to a huge range of free-to-air and digital TV and radio channels. Channels are free so you won’t have any subscription fees or contracts to sign. Because it’s all built-in you won’t need a set-top box or satellite dish either. Simply plug in your external TV aerial and access all your channels using just one remote control.

Optimise the picture for your surroundings

This BRAVIA model features an innovative power-saving ambient Light Sensor which detects the ambient light in a room and adapts the picture’s brightness accordingly. As well as making viewing more comfortable, when the set’s light sensor is activated, power consumption can be reduced by a further 30%. This is one of a group of energy-saving Eco-Settings which also includes Power Saving, Idle TV Standby and PC Power Management.


Experience advanced picture quality

Its BRAVIA ENGINE 2 processor delivers astonishingly clear and life-like colours with the most natural tones possible. Black levels are the deepest and most detailed, with a brightness and contrast that’s crisp and confident. Reds and greens are notoriously difficult to reproduce on an LCD screen. Live Colour intelligently boosts these colours making sure the images you see on your BRAVIA TV are bright, vibrant and realistic. Connect a compatible camera or camcorder and the TV will automatically switch to optimum settings for displaying photos and reproduce their full, realistic texture and colour.

Connect to your favourite technology

With its USB Media Player, you can connect a wide range of USB devices straight to your BRAVIA TV. From mp3 players to cameras, laptops to camcorders – even content from your USB memory stick, just plug in to enjoy your favourite multimedia files on screen. It’s easy to enhance your BRAVIA experience by connecting other HD products such as a Blu-ray Disc‚Ñ¢ player or PlayStation¬Æ3 thanks to four High Definition Multimedia Interface‚Ñ¢ (HDMI‚Ñ¢) inputs. These connections are specifically designed to carry high quality digital video and audio content. BRAVIA Sync lets you control other Sony devices you’ve connected using your BRAVIA TV remote control.

Enjoy authentic cinematic experiences

Cinema Mode is a new picture setting developed in collaboration between BRAVIA and Sony Pictures Entertainment. It allows films to be viewed as close to the original director’s cut as possible. Cinema Mode precisely reproduces details such as natural skin tone, lighting, colour and contrast. In 24p True Cinema mode films can be watched as the director intended for the big screen – at 24 frames per second. Standard TVs use 25 frames a second which means they play back ‘faster’ than they do in the cinema.

Create atmospheric settings

Whether you’re watching the big match, the latest movie or playing a high impact game, Scene Select allows you to choose from a list of options to automatically adjust the sound and picture settings to complement the on screen action. If, for any reason, you’re struggling to hear what someone’s saying, you can activate Clear Voice. Clear Voice automatically boosts voice frequency bands and enhances poor voice quality to clear, crisp, louder dialogue.
