Sony announces availability of two new LCD TV series
May 24, 2021
Sony has announced the availability of two series of its 2021 televisions – the BRAVIA XR X95J 4K HDR Full Array LED TVs and X85J 4K HDR LCD TVs are ready to pre-order now at select European retailers. The former is Sony’s current flagship BRAVIA XR 4K HDR Full Array TV and a winner of the CES 2021 Innovation Award, making full use of the new revolutionary Cognitive Processor XR, which employs a completely new processing method going beyond conventional AI, designed to replicate the ways humans see and hear.
When we see objects, we unconsciously focus on certain points. Cognitive Processor XR, powered by cognitive intelligence, divides the screen into numerous zones and detects where the ‘focal point’ is in the picture. While conventional Artificial Intelligence (AI) can only detect and analyse picture elements like colour, contrast and detail individually, the new Cognitive Processor XR can cross-analyse an array of elements at once, just as our brains do. By doing so, all elements are adjusted in conjunction with each other for best final outcome, so everything in the scene is synchronised and lifelike – something that conventional AI cannot achieve.
Cognitive Processor XR can also analyse sound position in the signal so the sound matches precisely with what’s on the screen. In addition, it upconverts any sound to 3D surround sound, to deliver supreme realism with an immersive soundscape. It learns, analyses and understands unprecedented amounts of data and intelligently optimises every pixel, frame and scene for the most lifelike picture and sound Sony has ever delivered.
BRAVIA XR X95J 4K HDR LED TVs feature the exclusive BRAVIA CORE service. Pre-loaded on all new BRAVIA XR models, users can enjoy a selection of the latest SPE premium and classic titles and the largest IMAX Enhanced collection. BRAVIA CORE is the first in the industry to feature Pure Stream technology, achieving near lossless UHD BD equivalent quality with streaming up to 80 Mbps.
The X95J and X85J TVs are ideal for gamers, too, delivering the support of multiple HDMI 2.1 features, such as 4K 120fps, VRR and ALLM, for smooth and responsive gameplay when connected to a next-generation console.
The 85” and 75” BRAVIA XR X95J 4K HDR Full Array LED TVs and the 85”, 75”, 65”, 55”, 50” and 43” X85J LCD TVs will be on sale from June. The 65” X95J model will be available later this year.
