Sony TV Size Guide
Sony helps you pick the right size TV with guide

26 Aug 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

To help consumers choose the best size TV with confidence, Sony has developed its own interactive ’TV Size Guide’ that lets you take a picture of your own home and insert different TV sizes.

Select the right size TV

We have all been there when it comes to sizing up televisions for the home. Judging if it will fit into a certain space, how it will look when it is there and whether it will be suitable for the style of your home are some of the customary headaches associated with making a purchase.

And more importantly; what is the ideal size TV for your living room?

Sony hopes to helps buyers answer those questions with an interactive TV Size Guide that simply lets you take a picture of your home where you want to place your new TV, and then have an online tool insert different TV sizes. Right now Sony can demonstrate 26, 32, 37, 40, 46, 55 and 60 inch TVs.

How it works
The prospective TV buyer simply goes to the TV Size Guide website and follows this guide:

1. Download and print out a marker - this is a simple shape printed onto an A4 piece of paper that the app will recognise and transfer into your selected TV
2. Place this marker where you want your TV to go, either on a flat horizontal surface or mounted on a wall, and take a photograph of it.
3. Upload the image to Sony’s online tool and it will automatically pick up the marker, working out the appropriate scale and position for your TV. Choose different size TVs which will appear on top of the marker to find the best one for you.
4. Save your images to create a gallery of choices to compare and contrast.
