For 2013, Sony announced their top-of-the-line XBR-X900A series of 4K Ultra HD LED TV in 55-inch (XBR-55X900A) and 65-inch (XBR-65X900A) screen sizes, offering four times the resolution of Full HD (3,840 x 2,160 pixels). These TVs included a proprietary 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine to reduce visual noise and corrects image shapes. TRILUMINOS Display LED backlighting is used in the XBR 4K LED TVs to present rich, authentic color with subtle tones while also replicating bold colors including hard-to-reproduce reds and greens. By integrating QD Vision’s Color IQ optical component with Sony’s unique display technologies, these televisions achieve significantly wider color gamut and provide a far more natural and vivid viewing experience with a heightened sense of depth. This wider color gamut also enriches and improves picture quality of personal content captured on compatible Sony digital cameras and camcorders compatible with TRILUMINOS Color, which contains wide-color gamut information in its content. Furthermore, Sony offers Blu-ray Disc players compatible with TRILUMINOS Color, allowing consumers to fully enjoy Blu-ray content shot in wide and rich color.
Along with offering its best-ever picture quality, the XBR-X900A series, 4K UHD LED TVs offer a better sound experience by incorporating an end-to-end Sony audio solution. Utilizing a Signal-to-Sound Architecture, these TVs incorporate Sony’s own magnetic fluid speakers and unique digital signal processing technology to deliver smooth midrange, lower vibration and deep bass. The front facing speakers on XBR 4K LED TVs extend Sony’s new design concept to match the exterior aesthetic of some of the other 2013 models for the home with a striking, angular, faceted outer cabinet – incorporating the Sense of Quartz design concept.
All XBR-X900A models are Wi-Fi enabled and offer a wide range of internet connected services including Sony’s smart connect solutions, enabling cross-device connectivity between mobile devices and their TV. With features such as One-touch mirroring and TV SideView, the X900A series TVs provide greater control and additional content options by interconnecting media sources across the home and mobile entertainment ecosystem.
