Sony has this week unveiled its new consumer OLED 4K Ultra HD TV priced at $5,000 which features “unparalleled black levels and contrast, new Acoustic Surface sound technology and a unique design” says Sony.
The new BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV range will be available to purchase both online and from retail stores at the beginning of April 2017 and is now on display at Sony’s flagship store in New York City.
The new Sony OLED 4K HDR TVs are equipped with the Android TV operating system which provides access to movies, TV shows and thousands of applications enabling users to watch broadcast and cable TV, download entertainment, and even play Android games directly on the large screen TV. Sony explains a little more in today’s press release.
The XBR-A1E offers a unique combination of the superior picture quality of OLED powered by Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, the world’s first Acoustic Surface sound system, and an edge-to-edge stand-less form factor.
With over 8 million self-illuminating pixels, the BRAVIA OLED 4K HDR TV line brings a significantly enriched visual experience with unprecedented black levels, rich and lifelike color, dynamic contrast, blur-less image and a wide viewing angle. The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme extends the capability of OLED to deliver an exquisite 4K HDR picture.
Sony was first to bring OLED to the market in 2007 with the XEL-1, an 11-inch TV display that was an outstanding achievement for its time. Sony has continued manufacturing award winning OLED displays for professional broadcast and video production. Sony’s professional OLED displays are used for editing, dallies review, graphics generation, special effects, as well as for broadcast and cinematic production. Sony Professional OLED Master Monitors have won a Scientific and Engineering Academy Award as well as a Technical Emmy Award for Outstanding Innovation in Engineering Development.
