Sony has launched the thinnest television in the world, with a screen less than a centimetre deep. The Sony Bravia ZX1, measures just 9.9mm at its slimmest point and is smaller than a CD case.
Even though the wafer thing LCD TV will be the first that people can buy, it is not likely to remain the thinnest flat screen for long, with rival manufactures such as Samsung, JVC and others rushing to launch their thinnest, lightest and slimmest televisions in the coming months.
The screens of the new ultra thin televisions illuminate by using side mounted LEDs instead of the backlit ones. Noticing the current trends in the competitive television market, experts feel that a television with a screen thickness of just 3mm (the same as a wedding ring), will be launched into the market.
Last year, Philips unveiled an 8mm LCD TV, while Japanese television manufacturer JVC is to launch a 7mm screen but the smallest television yet will be the 6.5mm displayed at the CES in Las Vegas by Samsung.
Considering the small fortune that you can expect to pay for these televisions, it becomes even more imperative to ensure their safety by purchasing the right TV bracket. TV brackets can be purchased that enable you to tilt or swivel your TV so choosing the right bracket can really enhance your viewing pleasure.
