Sony's new shape for TVs: The Wedge | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) |

Sony's taking a new approach to TVs this year. While its competitors have been busy making their sets slimmer or giving their displays a gentle curve, Sony decided to focus on another shape.

It has unveiled a series of TV sets featuring what it's calling a wedge design — sets with deep, triangular sides that taper in thickness as they rise.

It's a striking and stylish look, and more importantly, it allows Sony to take advantage of the extra space.

Rather than building in a set of basic stereo speakers, Sony uses the added room to include three more-capable speakers on either side of some of the sets.
