    Sony's LocationFree? TV sets you free to live beyond the living room. Whether you use it at home, through a wireless or wired LAN connection, or away from home, the LocationFreeTV wireless touchscreen LCD monitor and base station system allows you to enjoy video images and other media from a variety of locations on a 12-inch screen. At home, when you set up the base station in a central room, you are free to roam anywhere within its wireless transmission range carrying only the monitor. Away from home, you can access your TV, videos, and DVDs by using the system's NetAV function to connect to your base station through the Internet. You can enjoy browsing the Internet, composing and reading mail, and viewing your digital albums. You can also register other monitors to a base station. This allows you to use NetAV from the other registered monitors. Only one monitor can enjoy video with the base station at once.

    To browse the web and use mail, you must first connect the LocationFreeTV to the Internet through a cable TV line or DSL line. For a cable connection, you'll need a cable modem and a LAN cable; for a DSL connection, you'll need a DSL modem and splitter along with a LAN cable. While you are away from home with your monitor, you can connect it to your base station via the Internet, enjoy TV, and control the VCR or the DVD player in your home.

    With LocationFreeTV, you're not restricted to television and the Internet. External devices, such as a VCR, AV amplifier, DVR, DVD player/recorder, or digital cable, can be connected to the base station. You can also connect a digital video camera or similar device directly to the AV IN jack on the monitor to watch video. S-Video and A/V cables are sold separately.

    By connecting the monitor to a public wireless access or wired LAN, you can access your base station at an Internet caf or a hotel while you're traveling. The base station serves as a WiFi transmitter to your monitor, so you can use it anywhere in the world. Store up to 100 URLs in your Favorites list. Write emails or enter URLs with the stylus using the onscreen keyboard or attach an external keyboard (sold separately).

    Another fun feature of the LocationFreeTV is its photo album. While you're watching TV or surfing the 'Net, you can capture a still image of the screen and then save it in the album to enjoy later at your convenience. You can even draw pictures and text on saved images or a blank white screen and save your creations in the album. Additional features include a headphone jack, a sleep timer, and a power save timer.

    The LocationFreeTV monitor is completely portable, weighing approximately 5.3 pounds. For even more convenience when you travel, try the LocationFreeTV 7" Display and Base Station.
