Press Release   •  Nov 10, 2016 10:58 GMT

Essential facts, hints and tips from Sony on choosing the perfect 4K enabled HDR TV.

Sony’s range of 4K HDR TVs are some of the best partners for players who are looking to get the most from Sony Interactive Entertainment’s newest launch, PlayStation®4 Pro (PS4 Pro).

Offering enhanced graphical and processing power; delivering greater detail and unprecedented visual precision, PS4 Pro also supports HDR technology. The result is vibrant, more lifelike colour, support for faster framerates and super-sharp action*.

Players with a Sony 4K HDR TV will be able to enjoy supported PS4 titles in amazing 4K resolution at up to 60 frames per second.

The facts and hints below will help you get the best from your HDR TV with PS4 Pro:

Embrace 4K brilliance

The facts:

Discover the extraordinary clarity of 4K HDR. Every pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s powerful 4K picture processing technology. The difference is clear with supremely lifelike detail, making you feel like you’re there.

4K creates images of 3840x2160 pixels, translating to four times the resolution of 1080p HD. More pixels mean more information and detail, therefore sharper pictures with more clarity.

Tips:

Focus on versions with the standard 4K HDR features, such as Sony’s ZD9, XD94/93, XD85, SD85, XD83, XD80, SD80 and XD75/70 televisions. PS4 Pro also allows higher resolution output for video or gameplay captured using its Share button.

X-tended Dynamic Range

The facts:

X-tended Dynamic Range Pro is available across Sony’s ZD9 and XD93/94 TVs, which means the contrast between the lightest lights and the darkest darks will be reproduced perfectly and also lets you see a brightness range over three times that of a conventional LED TV.

Tips:

Whether you’re playing your favourite sports title or taking a trip through a post-apocalyptic world, you want your games to have as high a dynamic range as possible, so that the games feel sharper, clearer and more realistic. If you want to reveal every subtle nuance of an image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colours, make sure your TV is HDR compatible.

TRILUMINOS™ Display

The facts:

Sony’s unique TRILUMINOS Display** helps to create colour saturations and subtleties that give today’s game graphics the full credit they deserve. With a wider palette of colours and more natural shades and hues, game graphics appear sharper, clearer and more real than ever before.

Tips:

For ultimate realism, stick to Standard colour presets which optimise the colours to be as true to life as possible.
