Press release   •   Apr 06, 2021 09:00 BST

Sony’s BRAVIA XR X90J Full Array LED TV delivers singular picture and sound quality thanks to its revolutionary Cognitive Processor XR

Sony today announced availability for the BRAVIA XR X90J 4K HDR Full Array LED TVs. The latest BRAVIA XR TVs to become available from Sony come equipped with the new Cognitive Processor XR™, which employs a completely new processing method going beyond conventional AI, designed to replicate the ways humans see and hear.

When we see objects, we unconsciously focus on certain points. Cognitive Processor XR™, powered by cognitive intelligence, divides the screen into numerous zones and detects where the ‘focal point’ is in the picture. While conventional Artificial Intelligence (AI) can only detect and analyse picture elements like colour, contrast and detail individually, the new Cognitive Processor XR can cross-analyse an array of elements at once, just as our brains do. By doing so, all elements are adjusted in conjunction with each other for best final outcome, so everything in the scene is synchronised and lifelike – something that conventional AI cannot achieve.

Cognitive Processor XR can also analyse sound position in the signal so the sound matches precisely with what’s on the screen. In addition, it upconverts any sound to 3D surround sound, to deliver supreme realism with an immersive soundscape. It learns, analyses and understands unprecedented amounts of data and intelligently optimises every pixel, frame and scene for the most lifelike picture and sound Sony has ever delivered.

BRAVIA XR X90J 4K HDR Full Array TVs allow you to enjoy pictures that feel deep, natural and real. The revolutionary Cognitive Processor XR combined with a Full Array LED panel creates ultra-realistic pictures full of lifelike contrast.

BRAVIA XR X90J 4K HDR Full Array TVs feature the exclusive BRAVIA CORE™ service. Pre-loaded on all new BRAVIA XR models, users can enjoy a selection of the latest SPE premium and classic titles and the largest IMAX Enhanced collection. BRAVIA CORE is the first in the industry to feature Pure Stream™ technology, achieving near lossless UHD BD equivalent quality with streaming up to 80 Mbps.

The X90J TV is a great proposition for gamers, too, delivering the support of multiple HDMI 2.1 features, such as 4K 120fps, VRR and ALLM, for smooth and responsive gameplay when connected to a next-generation console.
