I tried to not go too far with the headline pun.
Extending from The Way Of Sony, the manufacturer has announced “real, actual” availability of BIVL.
BRAVIA™ Internet Video Link clips onto the back of selected TVs, and brings the content linking/downloading scenario of The Sony full-circle.
I was shown the design for a similar concept, whereby an entire HD IPTV Set Top Box and PVR could be slid in, as a board, to a manufacturer’s LCD panels. Not released yet, of course…
And I still have not seen Neotion’s enabler hardware.
Take yesterday’s comments on how to make “New TV”, and add the BIVL, and you might have a real, actual platform. As long as it’s not a closed, Sony-only platform.
