Sony doubles smoothness with 240Hz LCD

Crave: Catering to those sensitive souls for whom the smoothness imparted by 120Hz LCD HDTVs is still too rough, Sony will introduce the first HDTV with a 240Hz refresh rate this December.

Dubbed the KDL-52XBR7, this 52-inch model is the only one in the XBR7 series to boast the faster refresh rate.

According to Sony’s press release, the main advantage of 240Hz compared with 120Hz is the “exceptional motion detail in movies, sports, and video games.” Whereas standard 120Hz TVs in Sony’s lineup interpolate an extra frame between the real frames, the 240Hz model interpolates three.
