Sony Launches HDR Video Support for 2015 4K Ultra HD TVs
Sony Electronics announced on Tuesday that it is bringing High Dynamic Range (HDR) video support to more of its 4K Ultra HD televisions this fall. Sony had already announced the capability would be available in its X930C and X940C models, but it will be expanding that to include the X850C, X900C, and X910C models via a network update in the near future.
"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," Mike Fasulo, President of Sony Electronics, said in a statement. "You could say that HDR is in our DNA."
Along with the update, Sony said it will, for a limited time, give Sony 4K Ultra HD TV purchasers up to $100 of HDR content through the Amazon Video app—Amazon, according to Sony, is the first streaming video service to offer content in HDR. Further, Amazon Prime members will be able to access the first season of Amazon Original Series Transparent and Mozart in the Jungle and the pilot episode of upcoming comedy Red Oaks in HDR on their compatible Sony TVs.
