BRAVIA KD85XH9096BU (2020) 85 inch 4K HDR Full Array LED TV
The KD85XH9096 is part of the XH90 series of TVs featuring some of the latest technologies supporting all HDR formats including HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision which are comparable to the HDR1000 and HDR1500 Standards.
Driven by Sonys latest generation Full Array Backlight and their 4K HDR X1 image processor the XH90 delivers a stunning image. Combine this with the versatile AndroidTV platform and you have a wide range of entertainment sources to match.
Sony BRAVIA KD85XH9096 4K HDR TV
Building on previous generations the XH90 series offers the same premium image, sound and build quality as you would expect from Sony.
The Sony BRAVIA XH series maintains the same exceptional build quality as the 2019 XG series but aims to deliver an improved design. Keeping the TV slim with thin bezels and a discrete stand not only makes it more impressive visually but creates less distraction to what matters most, the picture.
This TV features Sony's new Full Array LED with X-tended Dynamic Range back-lighting technology which is a grid of LEDs behind the pixel layer of the screen as opposed to standard Edge lighting. The benefit of having this array of LEDs is that different areas of the screen can change brightness independently from each other allowing darker and lighter parts of a scene to be illuminated accurately which preserves more detail and improves colour accuracy across the whole image without compromises. This is called 'Full Array Local Dimming'.
Sony has also included their unrivalled X-Motion Clarity. A technology dedicated to offering considerably smooth motion of moving objects. Motion processing in the past has been known to introduce a slight blur to reduce the judder effect although this isn't seen with X-Motion Clarity, the object in motion stays crisp at all times without any trailing after image or stutter. Perfect for Sports and fast paced action.
Sound performance is not compromised and a cavity remains to ensure perfect acoustics for your living room. The Sony BRAVIA KD85XH9096 TV improves on this further by now including Acoustic Multi-Audio. The TV now includes 2 sound positioning tweeters that help to produce a sound that comes from higher up compared to the down firing speakers alone allow, this creates a much more immersive experience as the sound is coming from where you would naturally expect. The downward firing speakers are not overlooked however, the new X-balanced speakers being a new teardrop-like shape allow for a slim TV design while not compromising on sound quality. This all comes together to deliver a great rich and detailed sound profile while supporting HiRes Audio which encompasses all audio played back using higher sampling rates than those used in CD's closer to the original recording along with full S-Force Front Surround and Dolby Atmos object based audio support for an incredibly immersive sound experience whether its your favourite music or films.
With all this technology housed into one stunning unit, you want to make sure you get the longevity that you would expect from a Sony product. That is why this Sony BRAVIA KD85XH9096 4K TV comes with a full 5 years guarantee that covers parts, labour and even home visits.
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 Triluminous panel and full array back lighting technology with X-tended Dynamic Range and combines it all together to produce an exceptional television experience.
The tried and tested Sony Triluminous 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.
For a smart platform Sony have once again chosen AndroidTV. A very capable smart platform that offers a wide variety of catch up and streaming services Including BBC iPlayer, Netflix and Amazon Prime. New in 2020 however Sony has worked with Google to optimise the platform to provide a more fluid, bug-free experience. The user interface is noticeably snappier and more refined and with more focus on content. You can now add customised 'channels' on the home screen from supported apps such as Netflix and YouTube that highlight a row of suggested content before loading the app itself making it much easier to find the content you enjoy.
New to the XH series TV is the inclusion of Appe AirPlay and Apple HomeKit so now you are not limited to only using Google Home to integrate this TV in your smart home system.
