Sony was one of the very first brands to get a 4K TV to the market, and have been a strong diving force for 4K for a long time now. They were the first to deliver a true 4K video service with their 4K Video Unlimited service which was launched last September.
They have now pushed their 4K efforts even further by introducing nine new models in three new series. Their 4K TVs will now range from 49-inches, all the way up to 85-inches.
Having three series makes it easy to separate their models into their flagship highend series (Sony XBR X950B), their middle series (XBR X900B), and a new entry level 4K series (XBR X850B).
Every model has HDMI 2.0 support for 4K/60p content, along with HEVC h.265 codec support for the latest 4K streams, such as Netflix’s new 4K service which is launching soon.
Along with the 4K / Ultra HD resolution the new Sony 4K TVs support Sony’s 4K X Reality PRO picture engine for better upscaling, and TRILUMINOS display for an extra wide color gamut.
The new series also have a new “wedge” design. This gives more capacity to the lower section of the TV to incorporate larger speakers for improved audio quality and power.
