Sony says its new XH90 4K HDR Full Array LED TV range, which will be available by the end of May, will introduce a range of innovations to improve the sound and vision experience.

Full-Array Local Dimming with Boosting technology promises more effective and precise HDR management, to better balance the light output across the screen; darker scenes get darker and brighter scenes get brighter, and there’s the prospect of 4K 120fps high frame rate support, for use with next generation games consoles, such as the Sony PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. This will be delivered via firmware update.

The screen’s also come with an Acoustic Multi-Audio system (in 65-inches models and above), which features two sound positioning tweeters at the back of the TV, in addition to stereo downward firing speakers.

Sony has developed a new X-Balanced Speaker driver, said to benefit movies and music. The screen is also Dolby Atmos compatible, and will bitstream Atmos out of HDMI to compatible home theatre equipment.

There’s no change on the picture processor front, as the screens use Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1, with Object-based HDR remaster technology.

In addition to Dolby Vision, the sets have Netflix Calibrated Mode, said to mimic the performance characteristics of a Netflix studio evaluation master. Sony’s Custom picture mode does much the same for non-Netflix sources.

Smart connectivity comes via Android TV with the Google Assistant[and Chromecast built-in. There’s also compatibility with Amazon Alexa devices, and support for Apple AirPlay 2 and Homekit.

The XH90 range, which boast a minimal Diamond cut bezel, are available in 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch screen sizes, priced at £1,299, £1,499, £2,199 and £3,299 respectively. The hot buy would appear to be the 75-incher, for both immersive home cinema and gaming.
