  • Balancing environment and accessibility in BRAVIA entertainment products

Sony has set forth an environmental plan called Road to Zero, which aims to achieve zero environmental impact through its business activities and product life cycles by 2050. To contribute to this vision, BRAVIA will pursue innovations that provide the best viewing experience with high picture and sound quality and a premium design, all while contributing to reducing environmental impact. BRAVIA 7 uses Sony’s proprietary signal processing to maximize the characteristics of the panel device (Mini LED), automatically optimizing brightness for each scene while achieving both high brightness and low power consumption.

Sony is working on multiple aspects of the product life cycle, such as reducing virgin plastic use, improving transportation efficiency, and reviewing energy consumption during use. From material development to exterior design, BRAVIA has succeeded in significantly increasing the use of recycled materials while maintaining a high-quality finish. SORPLAS™, a recycled plastic developed by Sony, is used for the back cover, which has the largest surface area on a TV, with approximately 65% of the total plastic used being recycled material. The compact, rechargeable Eco Remote is also made from approximately 79.7% recycled plastic.

Sony aims to contribute to an inclusive society through its business, increasing accessibility to enable those with diverse needs to utilize its products. BRAVIA develops products with accessibility in mind so that all customers can enjoy the movie experience, regardless of disability or age. The Talkback screen reader function allows you to check program listings and set up your TV without looking at the screen. It can also enlarge text and display it on the screen.

Color inversion makes it possible to invert the brightness of colors so that bright areas become dark and dark areas become bright. This feature can be turned on or off as needed. If the text is easier to read with a dark or bright background color, you can use color inversion to change the background color. Voice commands can be used to operate the BRAVIA TV, such as turning the power on/off and adjusting the volume. BRAVIA TVs are also equipped with shortcut commands that allow you to turn on/off accessibility features.
