Sony’s monolithic design consists of a sheet of Corning Gorilla Glass stretching from edge-to-edge, adding some elegance to your viewing room. It looks just as good when it’s off as it does when it’s on.
The HX929 series also features Sony’s new OptiContrast panel, which features a design and surface treatment to minimize reflection, producing deeper images with superior black levels even in bright rooms.

Smart Design, Smart Features
Corning Gorilla Glass
Enjoy an incredibly durable, remarkably lightweight, frameless design with Corning’s exclusive Gorilla Glass. Combined with the Opti-Contrast panel, this HDTV boosts contrast, increases brightness, and minimizes unwanted light reflections.
Intelligent Presence Sensor
Enjoy an incredibly customized picture and sound experience every time. Sony’s Intelligent Presence Sensor uses built-in Face Detection technology to turn itself off if no one is watching, warns children when they’re too close to the screen and adjusts picture and sound based on where people are sitting in the room.
Energy Saving Switch
Even when turned off, most electronics are still using energy if they are plugged in. With Sony’s Energy Saving Switch you can easily eliminate this standby power without the fuss of plugging and unplugging the cord. When the switch is turned in the “OFF” position it reduces the television’s standby power to nearly nothing.
USB Photos, Videos & Music
Share your photos on the big screen or listen to your favorite music. Simply connect your digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player, or USB storage device directly to your HDTV’s USB input.
