Combined with the precision of a Full Array LED panel, XR Triluminos Pro and XR Contrast Booster promise supreme realism with deep blacks and intense brightness with wider colour gamut. The BRAVIA X90K series has multiple zones of LEDs that light up independently, allowing to adjust and create contrast by making light areas lighter and dark areas darker with greater depth, textures.

With the latest XR 4K Upscaling and XR Motion Clarity technology, it offers 4K action that stays smooth, bright and clear with no blur. It has HDMI 2.1 compatibility, including 4K 120fps, Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) and e-ARC. It also has Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos and IMAX Enhanced.

BRAVIA CORE offers the largest collection of IMAX enhanced movies with the highest quality Pure Stream 80mbps on BRAVIA XR TVs.

Regarding this, the company said:

While conventional Artificial Intelligence (AI) can only detect and analyze picture elements like color, contrast and detail individually, the new processor can cross-analyze an array of elements at once, just as our brains do. By doing so, each element is adjusted to its best outcome, in conjunction with each other, so everything is synchronized and lifelike – something that conventional AI cannot achieve.

The XR Cognitive Processor combined with the Full Array LED panel promise ultra-realistic picture quality, full of lifelike contrast. With the XR Contrast Booster, X90K series will offer vibrant colours and stunning contrast for supreme realism with deep blacks and intense brightness.
