What is the X-Reality Pro feature?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

NOTE: Not all TVs are supplied with the X-Reality™ PRO Engine. To see if your TV has the X-Reality PRO Engine, check the specifications. Manuals are posted on your model support page.

The X-Reality PRO Engine maximizes the picture quality of the full range of input sources, everything from dazzling 1080p Blu-ray Disc® movies all the way to very low-resolution, highly-compressed Web video. In particular, Web video is extremely challenging for a video processor because of picture quality issues. It may look great on your cellphone and a little grainy on your laptop, but it can be nearly unwatchable when displayed on a 60-inch TV at 1920 x 1080.

The X-Reality PRO Engine analyzes each pixel of the video signal, comparing it to neighboring pixels across the picture height, picture width and also pixels at the same screen location from preceding and following video frames. The system analyzes the picture across three dimensions: Width and Height (including diagonal) and Time. Because it analyzes vertical, horizontal and even diagonal motion from frame to frame, it knows that a white blob in the foreground of a building is actually a seagull flying across.

The X-Reality PRO Engine compares patterns in the image against patterns in the internal database to determine the best possible hue, saturation and brightness for each pixel. In this way, the system restores detail lost in compression and transmission. So fine texture in plants and clothes is optimized. The system also reduces noise and reproduces optimum contrast, color and sharpness.
