Sony software updating TVs for HDR Compatibility

the X91C, X90C, X85C and S85C Series in-line for an upgrade

by Mark Hodgkinson Sep 2, 2015

  • Sony has just announced that it is bringing High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatibility to more of its 4K Ultra HD televisions.
    In addition to the previously announced X94C and X93C series, Sony is also adding HDR compatibility to the X91C, X90C, X85C and S85C series via a network update. Sony is working with streaming video providers such as Amazon Video to bring customers movies and TV shows in HDR.

    "Sony is pleased to be expanding HDR compatibility for our 4K Ultra HD televisions. Sony has always been a leader in HDR, from our HDR-enabled professional cameras, to Sony Pictures produced and edited HDR content, to our expanded line of HDR compatible TVs, only Sony can bring you the full HDR viewing experience from the lens to the living room.” said Motoi Kawamura, General Manager for TV Product Planning and Marketing in Europe.

    Sony’s X-tended Dynamic Range technology in the X94C and X93C series enhances the viewing experience of HDR and non-HDR content with deeper blacks and brighter whites. The X-tended Dynamic Range feature in the Sony X93C provides up to twice the brightness range, while the X94C’s X-tended Dynamic Range PRO offers up to three times the brightness range.

    There have been no dates for the update given out yet but I hope they hurry up as there’s an X85 here on our review bench at the moment!
