VIDEO: Sony A1 OLED 4K TV at CES 2017

Sony finally launch their OLED TV with HLG and Dolby Vision

  • Sony demonstrated their new A1 OLED 4K HDR TV at CES 2017 with the promise of superior picture quality and Dolby Vision.
    The new Ultra HD model will come in 55-, 65- and 77-inch screen sizes and uses a revolutionary design that incorporates actuators into the rear of the panel to use the screen itself as a speaker. This results in a completely clean and minimalist design with just a screen at the front and no visible speakers or stand. There is a subwoofer built into the rear stand and when setup the A1 sits at a slight angle. The stand can be pushed up against the panel itself for wall mounting and behind a removable cover there are VESA wall mounts as well as spaces for tidy cable management.

    The A1 supports HDR 10, Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and, via a firmware update in the summer, Dolby Vision. The A1 uses the X1 Extreme processor that was launched on the ZD9 last year, with dual databases, superbit mapping for 4K and object-based HDR remastering. There will also be an HDR gaming mode, the TV uses HDMI 2.0a inputs and includes a proprietary filter to reduce reflections and eliminate any discolouration. The A1 will launch with Android M and be upgraded to Android N when the Dolby Vision update is released. Although Sony wouldn't confirm an exact release date, given the Dolby Vision update comes out in the summer we would expect to see the A1 released at the same time and pricing has yet to be announced.
