Sony announces 55-inch and 65-inch X9000A 4K LED TVs

Sony has announced that it will roll out 55-inch and 65-inch X9000A 4k LED TVs this year, in addition to three non-4k Bravia lines: the W900A, W802A, and W650A. The X9000A has an outstanding 3,840 x 2,160 resolution, and boasts a wide range of features, including Color IQ technology, Motionflow XR, S-FORCE Front Surround audio, and Sense of Quartz.

The X9000A utilizes the 4K X-Reality PRO processing engine, upcaling content to four times full HD resolution. The processing engine enables the incredible image quality by matching pixels against its database source while analzing, refining, and cleaning up videos. Color quality is high due to the TRILUMINOS Display, which displays a wider array of colors than you get with a standard HDTV, including various hard-to-reproduce hues.

Audio is handled via Sony’s Signal-to-Sound architecture, which, according to the announcement, “makes every moment real – from the roar of a packed stadium to the quietest whisper.” Like the video, audio is refined and optimized for the highest quality possible. The TVs have S-FORCE Front Surround and Magnetic Fluid Speakers, which are very energy efficient, reducing energy usage up to 35-percent. The X9000A can be controlled using an NFC-compatible Xperia smartphone via the One-touch Remote.

To ensure that the picture is always as clear as possible even when objects are zooming around, the X9000A features Motionflow XR 800Hz, which fills the gap between frames with transitional images, delivering up to four times the number of images as a TV without the technology. Because the X9000A is an LED TV, the Motionflox XR will provide an LED boost to intensify lighting when needed, while darkening will take place as well when called for.

The X9000A 55-inch and 65-inch will be launched in Europe in July.
