Sony has revealed three new 4K HDR TVs with features that would make HDR content look crisper than standard HDR. The new lines of Sony’s TVs are the 75-inch XBR-X940D Series and the XBR-X930D Series, which comes in 65-inch and 75-inch displays. Both of these sets feature ultra-thin bezels, Sony’s Triluminos display and Google’s Android TV service.
The Sony XBR-X940D includes grid-array local dimming, which Sony calls the Slimlight Backlight Drive; which allows for a thinner bezel without diminishing proper backlight distribution. Sony also stated that their TVs can produce deeper blacks and more vibrant colors than standard HDR models, thanks to the combination of its X-tended Dynamic Range Pro system.
Sony also launched a new app with its HDR TVs called Ultra, a streaming service that allows owners to purchase and stream HDR content from Sony Pictures on their Sony 4K HDR TV running Android TV. Ultra is set to launch later this year in the US, with 40 to 50 titles to start with.
Although Sony did not reveal the price tags of those new TVs, the company did introduced a slightly cheaper version called the XBR-X850D Series. This model is available in 55-inch, 65-inch, 75-inch and 85-inch displays, as well as featuring Sony’s Triluminos Display, HDR support and works through Android TV. However, it doesn’t feature the X-tended Dynamic Range Pro.
Sony said that the three new 4K HDR TVs will be available early 2016.
