With four times the resolution of Full HD, Sony’s new 84-inch TV is described as an ultra-definition TV (UDTV), it comes equipped with 4K X-Reality PRO and a 4K LCD panel comprising over 8 million megapixels. This gives it four times the resolution of Full HD standard.
The high picture quality engine is capable of taking a variety of content with different resolutions, such as HD footage from digital broadcasts or Blu-ray discs, and reproducing it in images with 4K resolution. In addition, it offers 3D footage in high picture quality with 4K X-Reality PRO super-resolution processing.
While the screen itself is 84-inches, viewers can actually sit closer to the screen for a remarkably lifelike experience, although whether that is good for the eyes is not known at this stage. The high resolution (3840 x 2160) allows viewers to sit as close to the screen as half the distance required when viewing Full HD (for which three times the screen height is recommended) without being concerned by the pixels.
Itsthree-way 10-speaker system (total output 50W) is arranged at the sides of the UDTV directly facing the viewing position, and is optimised for large-screen TVs.
The unit will be available in store at the end of 2012 with no pricing available.
