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.


Sony XBR-84X900 4K TV
One of Sony’s big announcements at the Berlin electronics show IFA is an 84-inch LED-based 4K TV.

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.

I thought it was going to integrate passive 3D technology? With the additional pixel count the 1/2 resolution 3D images will still be 1920 by 1080.

Comes with active shutter glasses? I wish.

To my knowledge the set is a passive 3D implementation with 1080p lines per eye.

Which is a departure from Sony’s active shutter glasses previous support, and the recently introduced 4K projector with active-shutter glasses that displays 3D content as 4K per eye (upscaling 3D 1080p Blu-ray with Reality Creation of course), which shows stunning in my Cinemascope screen.

The column said it comes with active shutter glasses? I wish.

To my knowledge the set is a passive 3D implementation with 1080p lines per eye, doubling the pixel count in the horizontal axis of the 3D (twice the 1920), and a less noticeable FPR grid but still needed for the passive.

This is a departure from Sony’s active shutter glasses previous support, and from the recently introduced 4K projector with active-shutter glasses that displays (1080p) 3D content as 4K per eye (upscaling 3D 1080p Blu-ray with Reality Creation of course), which shows stunning in my Cinemascope screen.

It appears Sony has followed the LG 84” 4K passive approach.
