Sony is expanding its 4K HDR TV range with the A8F and X9000F series.
The A8F series joins Sony’s Bravia OLED TV line-up and builds on the innovative features of the A1E series introduced in 2017. It uses the same X1 Extreme image processor and Acoustic Surface technology which uses the screen’s glass surface to produce sounds, instead of conventional speakers.
The 8-million-self-illuminating-pixel OLED TV can produce detailed images with deep blacks, rich and realistic colours, and has a wide viewing angle. The X1 Extreme processor incorporates three technologies: object-based HDR remaster, Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR and dual database processing.
The X9000F series, also powered by X1 Extreme, expands Sony’s LCD screen offerings and offers 4K HDR resolutions on 85”, 75”, 65”, 55” and 49”. As the screen size increases, motion blur, especially in fast-moving scenes, become more obvious. Sony addresses this with the X-Motion Clarity technology, using its proprietary direct LED local dimming and backlight boosting algorithm to control luminance and optimise its duration. This creates clear and smooth images with virtually no loss in brightness.
The X-tended Dynamic Range PRO feature enhances HDR and non-HDR content by boosting and dimming backlight levels.
The X9000F series is designed to match Sony’s new Dolby Atmos-compatible Soundbar, the HT-X9000F and produce a cinema-at-home experience.
Colour accuracy for both series is enhanced with Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display technology. Both the A8F and X9000F series will support Dolby Vision, the HDR format from Dolby Laboratories via a future firmware update. It creates an immersive cinematic experience with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colours.
