Sony’s new TVs for 2016 – and a dazzlingly bright prototype




The CES is that televisions are fully devoted to HDR. Just about every high end television that will be shown at CES this year, is able to provide images with a wide dynamic range. Similarly, the new UHDTV from Sony; they all receive support for HDR imagery with 10bits color depth. To consumers in the store to indicate that it is an HDR model, Sony has a 4k-HDR logo created.

Three different TV went on the Sony stand our attention: the X94D, the absolute top model for next year, the X93D, the version being there and positioned just below an impressive prototype that Sony unveiled at the end of the press conference. Although the various new television sets are all hdr-compatible, they make use of different techniques around the image display panel, with, in particular, the backlight.

Before we go on, there are also still mention some similarities. Thus, the new models run as the current 4k models on Google’s Android TV. What soc Sony used is not yet known, but hopefully it is a faster type than the MediaTek chip from current models, because that is not a high flyer.

So far more expensive models were supplied with two remote controls, which the smart model was equipped with a microphone for searches using speech. For model year 2016, Sony has developed a new remote that combines the old smart-remote and the IR model in a single device.

The new zapper seems at first sight similar to the current infrared model, but appearances are deceiving because there have been many changes to the design. Thus the keys are no longer made of rubber, but the entire top now become one whole. This allows the remote control is easy to clean with a damp cloth if accidentally spilled liquids. There is in addition to existing prominent button for Netflix came a striking red button for Google Play.
