Press release   •   Aug 31, 2011 15:30 BST

Now the whole family can watch and create thrilling 3D content with the new VAIO L Series 3D multimedia PC from Sony.

Slip on the supplied pair of rechargeable active shutter glasses – the same as used with latest BRAVIA® 3D TV models – and let VAIO immerse you in a fast-growing world of 3D movies, games, videos and panoramic photos.

With its slim, space-saving looks, the VAIO L Series 3D makes an elegant addition to any living space. Its stunning design is accented by a 24” Full HD VAIO Display Plus screen with LED backlight. This super-sized display brings all your movies, photos, music and games vividly to life with superb clarity and contrast, whether you’re watching in 2D or 3D.

Explore your media collection using the generously sized multi-touch LCD screen. Scroll through files, flick between web pages, zoom and rotate images with intuitive fingertip gestures. The screen is framed by a touch sensitive ‘Edge Access’ bezel that gives mouse-free access to key functions. The bezel also houses an embedded 3D transmitter; just slip on your active shutter glasses and enjoy the show in 3D, with no extra hardware needed.

The new VAIO L Series 3D offers more ways to enjoy your favourite entertainment. ‘Native’ supported 3D content includes movies on Blu-ray Disc™, games and videos. You can also enjoy 3D panoramic still images captured with Cyber-shot™ digital cameras and α DSLR digital cameras by Sony. There’s also a dedicated button on the bezel that instantly converts 2D content like Blu-ray Disc movies to simulated 3D at a single touch.

With the latest generation of speedy Intel® Core™ processors inside, this all-in-one VAIO provides the power you need to manage today’s media collections. The latest graphics by NVIDIA® ensure an even more satisfying HD video experience with the new generation of PC games designed for multi-core processors.

Depending on configuration, the integrated Blu-ray Disc writer lets you create, edit and store Full HD content with up to 50GB of storage on a single Blu-ray Disc. And whether you’re playing games or watching HD movies in 3D, S-Force Front Surround 3D complements your HD entertainment experience with powerful, ultra-realistic audio.

The integrated HD web camera powered by ‘Exmor’ technology delivers a crisp, clear High Definition image. It’s ideal for more realistic, satisfying web chats and video calls.

Touching the handily placed WEB button gets you powered up and online in seconds. There’s also an ASSIST button that launches VAIO Care software, troubleshooting problems and keeping your VAIO in top condition.

An HDMI® output connects the VAIO L Series 3D to any HD Ready television to watch video, photos, graphics and games on your TV screen. It’s also the first all-in-one PC with a 3D HDMI input, allowing this VAIO to display 3D video from a connected PlayStation®3. You’ll enjoy a superb view of PlayStation®3 games and other connected HD sources - even when the PC’s not booted up.

The VAIO L Series 3D adds yet another new dimension to your 3D world. It’s easy to create colourful 3D artworks with supplied Family Paint 3D software. Select from a choice of backgrounds and build your masterpiece on the large touchscreen with a wide range of sketch, paint, stamp and text tools. Adjust the depth of up to five separate picture layer, and enjoy the spectacular results in 3D. It’s a great way for all the family to have fun making their own 3D content.

The all-in-one 24” VAIO L Series 3D multimedia PC by Sony is available in the UK from retailers including Sony Centres, John Lewis and PC World, from October 2011.
