Sony BRAVIA with 4K HDR X1 Processor
The Sony 4K HDR X1 Processor is a fundamental component in the Sony Bravia range. It's what takes all hardware of the TV such as Sonys Triluminos PRO panel and 4K X-Reality™ PRO technology and combines it all together to produce an exceptional television experience.
In all circumstances the 4K HDR X1 Processor and 4K X-Reality™ PRO technology aim to make the best use of the 4K resolutions possible and offers brilliant upscaling capabilities. This is done by analysing what is on screen and comparing the information gathered against a database of high resolution reference images and enhances the detail of what you see on screen in real time. This is all done automatically with no configuration, simply tune into what you want to watch and the image is automatically enhanced.
The all new Sony Triluminos PRO panel widens the range of colours that are able to be displayed on screen allowing for a more accurate and true to life colour reproduction. This results in subtle details being easier to replicate on screen for an impressive, natural looking image.
In addition to this the 4K HDR X1 Processor includes Sony's Object-based HDR Remaster technology which analyses the objects on screen and adjusts the contrast to produce greater depth and realism.
Super Bitmapping HDR is yet another benefit to the 4K HDR X1 Processor. It looks at gradients of colour on the screen such as the orange glow of a sunset and ensures that the transition between colours is not only smooth but accurate. This eliminates the 'colour banding' effect seen on some other TVs.
New for 2021 is the inclusion of the Google TV operating system this is the successor to the popular Android TV used by Sony in the past.
