Sony developes new SXRD sensor

Matt Burns

The magic behind Sony's SXRD line is getting an update. Currently, the three sensors that drives the whole picture was developed way back in '05 - eons ago in gadget years - but Sony has the next gen ready to go. Nah, they didn't increase the resolution past 1920x1080 but the biggest improvement in our eyes is the adoption of 120Hz. This is the latest craze in HDTVs as it helps smooth out the picture, creating a very film like response. This new speed is twice as fast as the previous generation so users should see the difference on almost every moving image with less smearing. Sony has plans to stuff these new chips into their latest HDTVs and projectors so there is yet another reason to hold off purchasing an HDTV till you can see these. Sorry 'bout that.
