Background and Identification
Sony is a leading consumer electronics company. It was founded in the middle of World War II in Tokyo, Japan. The company originated as an electronics shop, but after building Japan’s first tape recorder, it became a serious electronics manufacturer. The company was originally called Tokyo Tsushin Kogyo but changed its name to Sony in 1958 to make it easier to market themselves worldwide. The name “Sony” has an interesting backstory. It is a mix of the Latin word “sonus”, which is the root of “sound” and “sonic”, and the word “sonny.” “Sonny” was a slang term that meant young boy in America but in Japan referred to respectable and intelligent young men, which the Sony founders saw themselves as.
Among Sony consumer electronics are Sony TVs, including the Sony Bravia 4K 55" Ultra High Definition Smart LED TV. This TV offers viewers a thin, sleek screen that sports a 4K HDR picture. Additionally, the Sony Bravia 4K 55” TV is designed to enable wide-angle viewing, meaning viewers can sit anywhere in the room and still have an optimal viewing angle. The Sony Bravia 4K 55” also employs Motionflow XR technology to make on-screen action seem lifelike. This TV was reviewed by rtings.com as having “rich colors and bright highlights.”
The Sony Bravia 4K 55” TV includes a thin, rectangular screen mounted on a base. The TV is designed to sit flat on a TV stand/entertainment center or attach to a wall mount.
