New Sony Bravia TVs are “odd”
Sony announced the XBR-A1E Bravia 4K OLED TV series at CES 2017. The 2017 model flagship of the company is important for the discovery of televisions with OLED technology. In the end, LG is a serious competitor to OLED TVs in real sense.
Sony says it is transitioning to OLED technology for unprecedented levels of blacks, rich, real life-like colors, dynamic contrast, blur-free images and a wide viewing angles. In fact, Sony does not directly produce OLED displays. Panel production is probably carried out by LG Display, a company independent of LG Electronics. However, Sony does not provide any information on who produced the OLED panels.
A built-in processor with Dolby Vision HDR support and 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme gives these TVs life. Most of the internal components of Sony’s Bravia OLED TVs, which have a very slim profile and compete with LG’s OLED TV, are placed on the foldable leg at the rear.
In the A1E Bravia series, screens are available in diagonal lengths of 55, 65 and 77 inches. Sony does not comment on the price of these products at this time. We don’t also have any details about when they will be in the markets. However, TVs introduced at CES usually enter the market in summer. This time we will probably see the same.
The OLED offers black levels and vibrant colors at a truly excellent level when compared to most LCD TVs. Meanwhile, another remarkable feature of Sony’s Bravia OLED TVs is its audio hardware. There are no visible speakers anywhere on the TV. That is because, Sony uses a sound technology called Acoustic Surfaces. With the company’s statement; Thanks to the OLED’s backlit structure, rich sound can be emitted directly from the entire surface of the screen to the room or saloon.
So, on Sony’s OLED TV, movies and sequences are coming directly from the screen itself. Sony says that with this approach, the sound will come from a wider perspective, making it feel more synchronic with the image. Of course, it is necessary to personally experience the sound experience to see the real situation.
Like most other televisions, Sony’s new A1E Bravia TVs also work with Android TV. It is possible to control the television through the Google Home, download apps from Google Play, or stream content from devices including smartphones, tablets and PCs. PlayStation Vue internet TV service will also be available in the supporting countries.
Sony also updated its LED TV series. New models include the X940E and X930E series. These updated models offer faster performance than last year’s products, as well as Dolby Vision support and improved HDR output.
