Sharing content with the new Sony Xperia Z’s One-touch

The Sony Xperia Z understands its users’ desires to share audio, video and photographic content in a variety of different ways, with a range of different devices.

The Sony Xperia Z understands its users’ desires to share audio, video and photographic content in a variety of different ways, with a range of different devices.

There’s a gigantic array of entertainment content available on your Sony Xperia Z and plenty of opportunities to enhance the experience, beyond that beautiful 5-inch, full HD 1080p screen.

When picking up your Xperia Z you’ll have access to Unlimited movies, TV shows and music from the Sony Entertainment Network apps, as well as PlayStation Certified games and thousands of awesome apps like Netflix and Spotify, available from the Google Play store.

Perhaps the best ways to share that world of content to other devices around the home and improve your viewing/listening experience is through Sony’s fantastic One-touch NFC tech.

One-touch uses Near Field Communications (NFC) to pair your device with a set of speakers or external monitor.

If you’re the proud owner of an NFC-equipped Sony Bravia television, all you’ll need to do is tap your Xperia Z handset on the remote control to see your smartphone’s content mirrored on the big screen.

The Sony SRS-BTM8 One-touch speaker dock works on the same principal, bringing the noise for home listening through NFC or Bluetooth connectivity.

Where NFC-equipped gear is not available, your options for sharing have just become greater with the introduction of one-touch mirroring tech on Xperia Smartphones and Sony Bravia televisions.

One-touch mirroring is a relatively new open technology allowing handset owners to mirror their mobile screen on a compatible display, which could be a computer monitor or one of the new Sony Bravia HD TVs launched at CES 2013.

This has really neat ramifications for Xperia Z owners. Imagine if you’re watching a film on the Sony Entertainment Network during the long commute home and want to watch the thrilling conclusion in your favourite easy chair. Now, you’ll be able to simply send a screen cast to your television set.

If you’re playing the Scrabble app on your smartphone, you can project your board onto the big screen instantly, with lightning fast content times and high quality visuals.

Although still in its early stages of development, the one-touch mirroring technology has a great advantage over other Wi-Fi device-to-device streaming solutions. 

See. As your mum and dad tried to teach you all those years ago; sharing is fun!
