By / 2 months ago / News / No Comments

Sony today announced the new Z8H 8K LED, A8H, X90H and X80H 4K LED televisions. Offering a premium viewing experience consumer have come to expect from Sony, this new lineup features proprietary technologies previously only found in Sony’s MASTER Series models. These new televisions aim to deliver the most immersive viewing experience in their class, and with evolving technologies and premium large screens, created to optimise the consumer experience by delivering content the way creators intended in both 4K and 8K resolution.

The next generation TVs are defined by delivering a personalised, immersive and true-to-life viewing experience, the elements that Sony has kept at the core of this development process.

By utilising Sony’s best-in-class Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate, clear and precise picture quality is achieved, offering customers a highly realistic viewing experience. Additionally, with TRILUMINOS™ Display, Sony reproduces the subtle nuances of colour, light and gradation from video lens to living room, offering more shades of red, green and blue than ever before. Premium quality sound is a key part of the viewing experience as well, and the new models feature Sound-from-Picture Reality™, which aligns the position of the sound with the images on the screen to offer a uniquely lifelike experience.

The new models will continue to deliver the creator’s intent with Netflix Calibrated Mode, offering studio-quality Netflix content which brings the immersive entertainment experience into the home.

This lineup also introduces Ambient Optimisation, a new technology that optimises picture and sound quality in any customer environment. To bring this new concept to life, Acoustic Auto Calibration detects where the customer views their TV from during initial setup and calibrates sound quality based on the environment. This new feature brings the television’s full sound potential to any environment.

In addition to Ambient Optimisation, this lineup will feature a new Immersive Edge design concept. In order to maximise the immersive experience, a noiseless stand is now located at the edge of the screen. The minimalist stand is less noticeable, offering customers an improved and unobstructed viewing experience.

For the upcoming next generation gaming consoles, selected new models will support 8K resolution, 4K 120fps high frame rate and fast response time via HDMI inputs to deliver their maximum performance for a cutting-edge gaming experience.
