Four 2019 Sony TV Technologies Explained + Demonstrated!

At the recent 2019 Sony BRAVIA OLED + LED TV Showcase, Sony explained and demonstrated four new 2019 Sony TV technologies, as well as a new 2-way stand for the Sony BRAVIA A8G OLED TV.

Let’s take a look at those four new 2019 Sony TV technologies, and find out how they will impact your viewing experience!

 

The Four 2019 Sony TV Technologies Explained + Demonstrated!

Let’s take a look at the four 2019 Sony TV technologies that are being introduced in their latest range of OLED and LED TVs.

Acoustic Surface Audio+

The Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology will debut in their latest BRAVIA A9G 4K HDR OLED TV. In addition to two actuators vibrating the TV panel to create sound, it uses two subwoofers to add bass, and a spatial effect.

Together, they deliver a multi-dimensional soundscape that envelopes you, the viewer, for a more immersive viewing experience.

Acoustic Surface Audio+ also introduces a TV Center Speaker Mode, which turns the A9G‘s display into a giant centre speaker, to complement your external speaker setup. This will allow for greater clarity of dialogue, vocals and instruments in any movie or performance you watch.

Pixel Contrast Booster

Pixel Contrast Booster is designed to maximise the OLED panel’s contrast throughout the colour spectrum (instead of just grey tones).

It accomplishes this by analysing each frame and applying the suitable signal enhancements, with feedback from the panel.

X-Motion Clarity

X-Motion Clarity keeps objects looking sharp, bright and clear, even in motion. Each ‘backlight blink’ is individually controlled and its duration optimised, while brightness is boosted when needed.

This is made possible by the 2019 Sony TV range’s full array backlight system, with local dimming capability.

X-Wide Angle

X-Wide Angle is designed to make sure the brightness and colour of an image remain the same at any viewing angle, so that everyone has the best view, no matter how they are positioned in relation to the TV.

Sony accomplished this by optimising the optical panel structure and signal processing to control the direction of light emitted by the backlight.

 

Extra : New BRAVIA A8G 2-Way Stand

The new Sony BRAVIA A8G features a new 2-way stand design, which can be inverted to support the placement of a sound bar! Check it out!

OLED Displays – The Future of Digital Signage

With self-lighting pixels that switch off completely to produce absolute blacks with no light bleed, and thus infinite contrast, OLED displays are the ultimate digital signage displays. With just two layers and no backlight, the OLED displays are also incredibly lightweight and thin.

Dual-View OLED Signage For Seamless Playback

Featuring a slim profile and versatile configurations, the one-by-four 65″ LG Dual-View Curved Tiling OLED signage consists of eight connected, double-sided flexible OLED panels. Each panel has a built-in SoC and 128 GB of internal memory that allows it to deliver images and videos at the 4K Ultra HD resolution of 3840 x 2160.

The LG Dual-View Flat OLED Signage (LG 55EH5C) offers a full HD display resolution on both sides of a super-slim profile, with a brightness level of 400 cd/m2 and a bezel of just 2 mm. It can be suspended from a ceiling, deployed as a floor stand or mounted in a window frame.

Scalable Video Walls for Creative Installations

[adrotate banner=”4″]

The 65″ LG OLED Video Wall allows businesses and organisations to create new spellbinding and interactive experiences. The one-by-three OLED Video Wall, which was showcased at the LG Business Innovation Centre, can be easily connected with other units to create signs of various configurations.

Ultra Stretch Digital Signage To Enhance ROI

The 86″ LG Ultra Stretch display is an ultra-wide 58:9 bar-type signage with an extraordinary resolution of 3840 x 600. Thanks to its Picture-by-Picture feature, it can be divided into four sections that can display different content simultaneously.

Unique Transparent LED Display

LG also has a unique LED transparent film display that incorporates LED diodes with a transparent film display to create stunning digital signages. They showcased an LG refrigerator with this impressive transparent LED display at the LG Business Innovation Centre.

Sony BRAVIA 4K HDR TVs Launched

On the 14th of April, Sony introduced their new BRAVIA 4K HDR TV series, with screen sizes of 55″ to 65″. The new Sony BRAVIA 4K HDR television series is designed to deliver a greater brightness range and higher contrast, making the best use of 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range) content with its unique backlighting technologies in a slim design.

 

Sony BRAVIA 4K HDR Experience With X93D & X85 Series

HDR is a burgeoning video standard that greatly expands the range of possible visual expression by reproducing higher brightness, higher contrast and more vibrant colors. HDR compatible content and services are expected to become more and more prevalent via Internet video services, TV broadcastings and Ultra HD Blu-ray titles.

The X93D series takes picture quality to new heights by delivering the best quality from HDR content. Sony’s new Slim Backlight Drive technology with a new grid-array backlighting structure, which was previously only available with full-array backlighting systems, allows X-tended Dynamic Range PRO technology to boost peak brightness and black levels more precisely and enhance contrast levels, while maintaining a slim form factor.

The 4K Processor X1 and its precision color mapping technology allows TRILUMINOS Display to reproduce a wider color range with accurate color details at any brightness level. The X1 also improves the streaming quality of 4K HDR images provided by Internet video services, such as Netflix. But the viewing experience goes beyond just the screen. A television should be great to look at in any environment.

When hung against a wall, the X93D series sits close to the wall and virtually disappears into it, leaving behind nothing but the picture itself. When the television is set on a TV rack or a cabinet, its clean cable management keeps wires out of view and looks equally elegant when viewed from behind.

This year, Sony is focusing on integrating BRAVIA TVs into the living room setting, with the notion of creating a smart living ecosystem that gives users the freedom to utilize a variety of Sony products with the TVs – by means of enhancing viewer experience.

The X93D and other 4K HDR TVs already bring stunning picture quality to whatever you’re watching but with the addition of these Sony products, ranging from digital cameras to audio systems, consumers and professionals are able to take their experiences to a whole new level – experiencing stunning still images and videos on a larger screen, thanks to sharper 4K HDR clarity, along with surround, sound enhancements to bring movies and music to life.
