Sony bringing HDR to more 2015 4K TVs

Today Sony announced that they’ll be bringing High Dynamic Range support to “more” of their 4K Ultra HD television sets. Two models already have support for this feature, while three more are set to earn an update in the near future. This update brings Sony’s HDR to content that supports it – Amazon Video is one example. With this feature, users see a higher dynamic range of color, luminosity, brightness – for a more distinctive viewing experience. More detail, more color, more intensity.

In addition to the X930C and X940C models announced to be attaining HDR earlier this year, three more models will have the software necessary to execute HDR in the near future via a network update. The X850C, X900C, and X910C will have HDR abilities this Fall.

Also starting this fall Sony will be bringing a number of HDR-compatible pieces of media to users who purchase a compatible Sony 4K Ultra HD TV. Movies like The Amazing Spider Man 2, Men in Black 3, After Earth, and Fury will be brought to users from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment to the Amazon Video app.

Amazon Prime members will find the HDR-compatible Amazon Original series’ Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle first seasons available for free. The pilot of the upcoming comedy Red Oaks will also be free to Amazon Prime members, also HDR-compatible on these Sony 4K tvs.
