We spent this past week at CES 2013 where we visited Sony’s huge and very impressive 2013 booth.
We were lucky enough to be given a personal tour around their booth where we filmed everything for our readers, and we’re pleased to bring our video to you.
Sony were left out of the OLED fun at last years CES, but they responded with a bang, and unveiled their prototype 4K OLED TV. Combining both the 4K / Ultra HD resolution with the latest OLED screen technology to deliver a very very impressive image.
We have previously covered Sony’s 84-Inch Ultra HD TV with a hands on video, but at this years CES Sony announced two smaller 4K Ultra HD TVs, the 65-Inch Sony XBR-65X900, and the 55-Inch Sony XBR-55X900. An 84-Inch Ultra HD TV is too big on size and price for most people, so it’s great to see smaller models coming our way. Sony said the smaller 4K models will be available “early spring” and will be “competitively priced”. They also said that the 4K OLED prototype would be coming our way “eventually”.
We also have a demo of their Sony SideView technology with enables you to use your tablet and other devices to control the TV, search multiple video sources, and “throw” the video onto the TV.
We have technology demos showing a comparison of standard HD, and HD upscalled to 4K. As you should be able to see from the video, the Sony’s TVs go a great job at upscaling the 1080p content. We also show Sony’s Triluminos technology, 4K projector and high end audio equipment.
Sony also talk about their 4K server. 4K content will be available on blu-ray discs for the customer. With the possibility of 4K being delivered via the Internet in the future.
