The underlying trend for last years CES previewed the market’s adaptation for OLED TVs, and Sony is back at this year’s show with improved models using the new display technology. While LG Display is the manufacture of the OLED panels, Sony handles the image processing. As a result, the TVs feature gorgeous colors, alongside Sony’s new Acoustic Surface audio, which projects sound through specific areas of the screen.
Sony‘s new AF8 series takes full advantage of the new technology and offers it in 55-inch and 65-inch sizes, which feature a more toned-down design. Dolby Vision is now supported alongside HDR10, while the company’s X1 Extreme processor handles image tuning.
Sony is looking at ways to add Dolby Vision as a firmware update to older high-end models.
When looking at LED TVs, Sony is adding bigger sizes to their X900 series: now coming in at 85-inch, 75-inch, 65-inch, 55-inch, and 49-inch models. The company is also adding their new X-Motion Clarity technology, which improves motion fluidity and “keeps fast action images smooth and lifelike.”
