With Sony televisions, everything you watch is sharpened and refined with the latest detail enhancement and noise reduction technology for amazingly realistic pictures.
4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme
Our newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme has 40% more real-time image processing than our renowned 4K Processor X1™. It takes everything you watch and upscales it to near 4K HDR quality.
Object-based HDR remaster
Now you can watch everything close to the beauty of 4K HDR. You’ll see contours on mountains, hidden textures on flowers, depth in clouds and wildlife has the contrast and colour of nature, for a more natural and realistic picture on screen.
With Object-based HDR remaster (1), the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black to white contrast curve (2). Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more real pictures.
Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR
There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR reveals them all. It creates a smooth, natural picture as you watch, without the “banding” that can occur on other TVs.
14-bit signal processing breaks up the solid bands of colour, effectively smoothing out the gradation between shades – displaying a 14-bit equivalent gradation, even from an 8-bit source, showing 64 times the colour levels of a conventional display.
Dual database processing
One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.
Compressed noise is identified by the database which includes "before and after” data on what a picture should look like and removes the compressed picture noise.
The upscaling database also includes "before and after" data which is used to upscale the signal and create a more realistic picture.
Unique 4K X-Reality™ PRO and X-Reality™ PRO picture processing technology upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity. Advanced noise reduction techniques and a special pattern database ensure every scene is full of lifelike detail.
A variety of noise reduction techniques are used by 4K X-Reality™ PRO and X-Reality™ PRO to sharpen and refine images. See how scenes become clearer, smoother and more natural.
With 4K X-Reality™ PRO and X-Reality™ PRO , patterns in images are compared with patterns stored in a unique database to find the best hue, saturation and brightness for each pixel. We use the knowledge gained from developing and filming blockbuster movies and TV shows to deliver supremely lifelike detail in everything you watch.
