Sony products are the essence of simple connectivity. They are designed to connect quickly to each other and to the world beyond so that every owner, from the novice to the enthusiast, can easily enjoy the benefits of digital networking. For example, Memory Stick makes it easy to connect your Cyber-shot digital still camera to a WEGA television and enjoy your shots in outstanding, vibrant quality. You can also create, edit and share your own movies on DVD using a digital Handycam, a DVD player/recorder and a VAIO, and, with a simple connection to a WEGA television, view these in the same superb quality. Or you can enjoy your favourite music whenever you want by creating your own Internet-sourced compilations on NetMD or CD with a VAIO and a Sony network music device. Such simple connectivity creates a bridge between the worlds of AV and IT and gives you complete control over your digital environment.
