Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. Like you’re really standing there on the beach, watching the sun go down, the 4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme creates a reality that you can feel.
See stars in the sky at night in new detail. The Backlight Master Drive delivers deeper black and brighter lights. Previously hidden details come to life, making scenes more real than ever before. No distractions, just focus on what you’re watching. The pale gold bezel helps the TV look good in any room while cables stay cleverly hidden at the back and the front. The dense, rich, and powerful slate design encapsulates the viewing experience.
Unfortunately no information on pricing or worldwide availability has been released as yet Sony for the XD9 100 inch 4K TV, but as soon as information comes to light we will keep you updated as always.
