The world's first TVs with cognitive intelligence - a new dimension of picture and sound

What is cognitive intelligence?

The way we perceive the world is based on information coming from our eyes and ears to our brain at the same time. Conventional AI can only detect and analyse elements like colour, contrast and detail individually. Cognitive Processor XR can cross-analyse every element at once, just as our brains do.

Analysing hundreds of pieces of information, the same way our brains do

To create this closer-to-reality feeling, Cognitive Processor XR divides the screen into hundreds of zones and recognises individual objects in these zones better than ever before. What's more, they can cross-analyse around a few hundred thousand different elements that make up a picture in a second, the same way that our brains work.

Pictures just like the way our eyes perceive the world

Unlike a conventional TV where all picture elements are adjusted to the same level, BRAVIA XR TVs with cross-analysation adjust each element to its best final outcome, in conjunction with each other, so everything is in harmony and feels totally natural.

Focusing the same way our eyes do

BRAVIA XR TVs work the same way as our eyes, detecting the main focal point in a scene and enhancing each detail in an object so it stands out with a natural sense of depth, just as in the real world. 

Creating a more realistic, immersive soundscape, just like you hear in real life

With advanced sound processing that mimics the human ear by pinpointing where sound is coming from and placing it in the right spot on screen, BRAVIA XR TVs put you at the heart of the scene.

Delivering sound in horizontal and vertical directions, BRAVIA XR TVs provide a real multi-dimensional experience. They analyse and upconvert audio to 5.1.2ch surround sound, creating a true 3D soundscape. 

Bringing you more excitement and emotion through the screen

What does reality feel like? That’s the question BRAVIA XR TVs aim to answer with “Cognitive intelligence”. It understands the way our eyes see, and our ears hear, to present a more human perspective on screen – for an experience that’s closer to the real world and puts you deeper into every scene.
