Sony has revealed the availability of its ZH8 8K HDR Full Array LED TV, which is expected to go on sale in Europe in early June. Bringing together Sony’s finest developments in picture quality and sound delivery alongside enhanced user experience, the ZH8 makes a compelling proposition for film entertainment lovers and gamers alike.
By utilising Sony’s best-in-class Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, clear and precise picture quality is achieved for a highly realistic viewing experience. Even images filmed in 4K and 2K are upscaled close to 8K by 8K X-Reality PRO using a unique 8K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimised by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.
The ZH8 incorporate Sony’s premium Full Array Local Dimming and Boosting technology. This 8K TV precisely balances light output across the screen to ensure scenes are full of breath-taking contrast. With zones of LEDs lit independently, Full Array LED provides more realistic contrast by making light areas lighter and dark areas darker. Contrast is further enhanced by 8K X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO, which adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow.
The ZH8 8K HDR Full Array LED TV comes equipped with Sony’s signature Acoustic Multi-Audio, which includes a vibrating frame tweeter – a speaker that enables sound to follow the action for a truly immersive experience. Independent amps are controlled separately to precisely manage sound positioning of this speaker in high tone areas, enhancing sound pressure and stability for more realism. Combined with its minimalist one slate design and thin bezel, the ZH8 TV allows total immersion in entertainment without distraction.
For the upcoming next generation gaming consoles, the ZH8 series TVs will support 8K 60fps as well as 4K 120fps high frame rate and fast response time via HDMI inputs to deliver their maximum performance for a cutting-edge gaming experience.
