Sony Unveils 84-inch 4K TV29 Aug, 2012 By: Chris Tribbey
Later this year Sony Electronics will release its first TV capable of displaying 4K (3840 x 2160) images, or four times the resolution of today’s 1080p displays.
The 84-inch XBR-84X900 LCD TV will be capable of upscaling any image to 4K, as well as 3D. Pricing and a release date have not been announced.
“From Trinitron to HD, 3D and now 4K, Sony has led the way, innovating TV since 1968,” said Brian Siegel, VP of Sony Electronics’ TV Group. “This new model redefines what consumers should expect from their television’s performance. Our professional division continues to see the migration toward 4K content creation with major film and broadcast productions. Armed with this knowledge and expertise, only Sony continues to push the television experience with innovation and immersive products.”
The TV and its passive 3D glasses allow for a resolution of 3D video higher than 1080p, and the TV incorporates 10 speakers. More than 50 applications are included in the connected-TV features.
