Sony 4K 84-inch TV: Will it be at CEDIA?
Sony debuted its 84-inch XBR-84X900 4K TV at IFA in Berlin. The TV features a 3840 x 2160 resolution, 3D capabilities, virtual 5.1 surround sound and more.
This 3840 x 2160 model (number XBR-84X900) will likely also be in the US at CEDIA Expo 2012, so we’ll give you an in-person impression report then.
The TV will use a proprietary upscaling technology called 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine to bring lower resolution content up to the level of the TV.
The 84X900 incorporates a 10 Unit Live Speaker system to create virtual 5.1 surround sound. You can take the side speakers off if you’re using a separate home theater audio system to provide the sound (and we hope you do).
Of course, it’s a 3D TV and comes with active shutter glasses. Smart TV features are expected in any new TV, and this model has full network connectivity with built-in Wi-Fi, access to the Sony Entertainment Network suite of services, plus Netflix, Pandora and more than 50 other streaming apps.
It’s no real surprise that Sony should come out with a big 4Ker as it showed the first consumer home theater 4K projector at CEDIA Expo 2011.
