The company just debuted the XBR-X930D/XBR-X940D and the XBR-X850D series. These new 4K TVs have support for high dynamic range (HDR) content, new backlighting features, and all sorts of Android TV goodies, as well as a new ultra-thin design.
For this year’s 4K TVs, the buzz is all about HDR. That’s because this little perk promises better brightness levels and a greater contrast than ever before. It also means you’ll get even more detail with the blackest blacks and brighter whites on-screen. Sony’s 2016 4K TVs, from the XBR-X850D series and up, will come packing the “4K HDR Ultra HD” logo.
Sony also introduced Ultra, a new app that can stream 4K and HDR content from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.
Available in 55- and 65-inch screen sizes, the XBR-X930D Series has Sony’s new Slim Backlight Drive with precision grid array backlighting, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO, and TRILUMINOS Display technologies. Other features include Sony’s 4K Processor X1 and the 4K X-Reality PRO upscaling engine. Both of the XBR-X930D models, as well as the 75-inch XBR-X940D, will have many of the same features, including the new ultra-thin design. The X940D is a slim full-array direct backlight LED.
The XBR-X850D Series will be available in 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch screen sizes with a lot of the features mentioned above, including the X1 processor, the 4K X-Reality PRO upscaling engine, and the TRILUMINOS Display.
Sony will start shipping its HDR-capable 4K TVs sometime in early 2016. Pricing has yet to be announced.
