Press release   •   Dec 03, 2008 10:25 CET

We know how it can be tough to find the perfect Christmas presents - you seem to spend hours searching but never quite find exactly what you wanted. But this year, Sony comes to the rescue with a fabulous selection of gift ideas – all designed to give you the ultimate home entertainment experience, whether you’re a music lover, film fan, computer buff, or photo enthusiast.

Stunning TV pictures and sound...

Thanks to the world’s first 200Hz Motionflow technology, the BRAVIA Z4500 television delivers the smoothest and clearest motion reproduction to be achieved by an LCD TV (perfect for watching the Christmas football matches) as well as vivid, crystal clear colour courtesy of its BRAVIA ENGINE 2 technology. Available in screen sizes of up to 52” the BRAVIA Z4500 makes a stunning centre-piece to any home entertainment system. See a really simple explanation of the MotionFlow technology at

A design masterpiece created to enhance and complement the most stylish living space, the BRAVIA ZX1 is guaranteed to catch and hold the attention. Only 9.9mm thin, it is a stylish addition to any living space. Thanks to ‘BRAVIA 1080 Wireless’ technology, this TV is cable free, meaning there’s more space to hang the stockings without any wires getting in the way.

Want an elegant TV to place on your wall to set off your Christmas decorations? The wireless BRAVIA EX1 look is intentionally in the picture frame style. With the wireless technology eliminating the need for ugly cables, the EX1, in a choice of elegant black and silver bezel finishes and 40-inch, 46-inch or 52-inch screens should harmonise with every decor (no matter how many Christmas decorations you might want to put up).

Blu-ray Disc™ Player BDP-S350
The BDP-S350 Blu-ray Disc player is the perfect Christmas present for anyone who wants the ultimate home entertainment experience. It reproduces the 24 frames per second of the cinematic original exactly, so that what you see at home is as close as possible to the theatrical experience.

BRAVIA Home Theatre IS range
A gift of a stylish BRAVIA Home Theatre couldn’t be more exciting to unwrap and easier to set up. The speakers of the DAV-IS50 are so small (the size of a golf ball) that you don’t need to move your Christmas tree or furniture to start installing the system right away. Despite their tiny proportions the speakers deliver a big 450Watt 5.1 surround sound. And with wireless rear speakers, there’s no wiring from the front to the back of the room, so no tangling with your Christmas light cables either.

After a hassle-free physical set up, the sound set up is a breeze – just the touch of a button for an automatic surround sound calibration that sets the system for top performance. And to give great pictures to match its superb sound, the DAV-IS50 will upscale pictures from its built-in DVD player to 1080P, so they look stunning on the latest BRAVIA TVs. If you’re looking for just the speaker system for an existing DVD or Blu-ray Disc player, then there’s the HT-IS100. It uses the same tiny speakers and neatly hides away the amplifier into its subwoofer.

Music everywhere, for everybody...
WALKMAN® S series

For the ultimate mobile entertainment experience (perfect for those who want to listen to their own music, rather than the obligatory Christmas tunes), the WALKMAN® S series delivers amazing sound quality thanks to a suite of four Sony developed Clear Audio technologies, as well as superb video playback on its bright and clear 2-inch LCD screen.

An audio entertainment experience the whole family can enjoy, the GIGA JUKE NAS-SC55PKE is a hard-disk Hi-fi system that not only stores up to 40,000 songs but also wirelessly streams music to up to five remote speaker units (with one already included in the package). This allows family members to listen to different music at the same time all around the house. Because GIGA JUKE can copy songs directly from any source, whether it’s a CD, vinyl, cassette, radio or MP3 player, you don’t even need a computer to use it. So you see how easy it is to keep your family’s favourite tunes regardless of the recording format and enjoy them anywhere in the house.

Want a talking point for your Christmas party? A totally unique device, Rolly is a robotic MP3 player that dances to your favourite music. Rolly delivers superb sound quality (with its neodymium stereo speakers) and your guests will gasp in amazement when it starts spinning and flashing its multicoloured LEDs in time to the music.

Irresistibly gorgeous computers...
A VAIO laptop is perhaps the ultimate Christmas gift. Packed with features, the VAIO CS looks amazing too. Available in a range of bold colours (red, white, pink, tan and black*), this elegant notebook will become your remarkable companion wherever you go. With a built-in webcam and an easy-access function button, video chat is a joy with absent friends and family around the world on Christmas day. Create your own memorable video of this holiday season with the easy-edit software VAIO Movie Story. Friends will be impressed to watch it on VAIO’s super-sharp, vividly coloured screen.

Whilst a VAIO laptop might be top of the Christmas wish list, the VAIO JS is an excellent choice of home PC for the entire family. It’s an all-in-one PC, cleverly and distinctively designed for a small footprint on the desk, or anywhere in the home, yet with a generously sized 20.1-inch screen. The roomy 500GB hard disk is built into the monitor and provides plenty of storage space for family pictures, video and music. It even comes in different colours: silver, brown or pink*, so it gives a nice accent in any room.

Cameras to capture every perfect moment...
Cyber-shot™ T77

Need a camera to take with you wherever you go? The 10.1 megapixel super-slim Cyber-shot™ T77 is just 15mm thick and weighs only 151g, making it an ideal present for the person in your life who just has to take their camera everywhere they go. With its elegant design and wide choice of colours, it’s a must-have gift for style-conscious shutterbugs. It’s great for capturing those special Christmas moments too.

Handycam® TG3
Christmas just wouldn’t be Christmas without those home videos of the family unwrapping their presents, and the Handycam® TG3 will let you record those videos in Full HD to make sure you capture every detail. Because it’s the world’s smallest and lightest Full HD camcorder, with a body manufactured from super-tough titanium, the Handycam® TG3 can go wherever you choose to venture and, most importantly, it will survive the mad rush for the tree to unwrap all those gifts.

Peace, perfect peace...

For those seeking a little peace and quiet this Christmas, away from the mad rush, the MDR-NC500D is the world’s first digital noise cancelling headphone set, capable of eliminating up to 99% of unwanted background noise.
