CES 2020: Sony goes all-in with new TVs
Even TV remotes have backlit buttons now?
At CES 2020, Sony showed off a range of new 8K LED, 4K OLED and 4K LED TVs, featuring a bunch of new and interesting TV tech.
The major announcement of the day was Sony's unveiling of its new flagship 8K TV, the 85-inch Z8H. Apart from being a premium 8K TV with top-of-the-line picture processing tech and connectivity capabilities, the Z8H is packed with other interesting and innovative features aimed at making your viewing experience better and more convenient.
The TV has Sony's new "Frame Tweeter" technology, which vibrates the TV's frame to produce sound. This is supposed to make it sound like audio is directly coming from the screen, rather than from a speaker off to the side.
Interestingly, the Z8H's remote is even backlit. That should theoretically help you control the TV in the dark in the same way a backlit keyboard can help you see what you're typing in low light.
The A8H OLED TV is Sony's latest crack at OLED, and it comes in both 55- and 65-inch models. The TV features Sony's X-Motion Clarity tech, which it says provides a better and brighter picture than "ever before" while keeping motion smooth.
The Japanese manufacturer announced its X95H, a 4K LED TV with its "best-ever picture and sound quality". It comes with upgraded X-Wide Angle technology to provide more vivid colours and better brightness than conventional LED TVs at all angles (well, at angles where you can see the display).
Sony also displayed the X90H, its new mid-range 4K LED TV with thin bezels and the ability to display content at 120fps. Like the rest of the TVs Sony announced at CES 2020, it features Dolby Atmos and Vision as well as connectivity capability with a range of devices, including those by Apple.
Finally, the brand took the covers off its X80H 4K TV, which comes in six screen sizes from 43 inches up to 85 inches. The display features object-based HDR remaster technology and a shaped speaker system.
There's no Australian availability or pricing information yet, so keep your eyes peeled for an announcement soon.
