Sony has unveiled its 2022 range of Bravia XR TVs at the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, alongside a new Bravia Cam that recognises where people are sitting in the room and optimises the picture and audio accordingly.
The latest Sony Bravia XR Series includes the X95K 4K Mini LED, Master Series A95K, Master Series A90K and A80K OLED and X90K 4K LED models.
The XR Backlight Master Drive that produces deeper blacks and more natural tones is supported by XR Triluminos Max for the widest colour palette to ensure the most accurate shades and hues.
The new Sony Bravia XR TVs feature enhanced Acoustic Surface Audio+ on OLED models and Acoustics Multi-Audio for LED models. This technology precisely matches the location of the audio relevant to the object on the screen.
Sony has partnered with Netflix to create Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode which can automatically adjust the image processing based on ambient light. In addition, Sony’s new Bravia Core Calibrated Mode adjusts the image quality automatically based on viewing conditions.
All 2022 Bravia XR TVs are ‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ and include two PS5 exclusive features – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode. The TVs will automatically adjust and optimise picture settings best for the PS5 console. They also offer 4K/120fps through the HDMI 2.1 ports for a smooth and responsive gaming experience.
In 2022, Sony has introduced the Bravia Cam which can situate people in the room for optimised viewing conditions and be used for gesture control, video chat and more.
Availability and pricing of the Bravia XR TV range will be confirmed at a later date.
