Sony is introducing the 2022 Bravia XR TV lineup at CES this week including two new Mini LED models with ‘XR Backlight Master’ tech, three Master Series OLED models, and a new 4K LED model. The company says the new line provides enhanced audio and processors, as well as a newly developed camera device for home calibration. This will analyze home surroundings in real time to display the most accurate picture with audio synchronization.

Sony is also unveiling a software update for the HT-A7000 and HT-A5000 soundbars. This will add 360 spatial sound capabilities first found on the HT-A9 home theater system in 2011. This can be accessed by connecting a soundbar to the new SA-RS5 wireless rear speakers (to be launched in spring 2022), or the currently available SA-RS3S wireless rear speakers.

Below is a list of models and respective features direct from Sony Electronics. For more information, visit Sony.

About the 2022 BRAVIA XR Lineup

Stunning Pictures

· Cognitive Processor XR™ cross-analyzes and enhances images, especially around the focal point, to give real life depth, extraordinary contrast, and beautifully vivid colors and lifelike picture quality.

· XR Backlight Master Drive uses a Sony-developed local dimming algorithm to control thousands of tiny, ultra-dense Mini LEDs with precision and independence for extraordinary brightness, impressive dynamic range, deep blacks, and beautifully natural colors.

Impressive Audio

· Acoustic Surface Audio+™/Acoustic Multi-Audio™ ensures that sound matches precisely with what’s on the screen

· When paired with BRAVIA XR TVs, 360 Spatial Sound Personalizer offers a perfectly optimized spatial sound experience for neckband speakers – like Sony’s SRS-NS7 – & other select Sony headphones – all with ease. Dedicated apps even personalize the cinematic sound field by analyzing users’ individual ear shape.

· Compatible with an array of Sony sound products including HT-A9 Home Theater System or the HT-A7000 and HT-A5000 soundbars. Through this TV/audio connection, users can experience Sony’s 360 Spatial Sound Mapping technology that creates multiple optimally arranged phantom speakers for a wider and more immersive cinematic sound field.

Packed With Features

· BRAVIA CAM ensures users always have the best seat in the house by recognizing where users are in the room and how far they are from the TV, then adjusts sound and picture settings so they’re just right. It also offers gesture controls and video chat.

· Google TV brings together more than 700,000 movies, shows, live TV and more from apps and subscriptions and organizes seamlessly.

· With the pre-loaded BRAVIA CORE movie service app, content is delivered with stunning visuals and expressive sound quality via BRAVIA XR technology, Pure Stream™14 and IMAX® Enhanced

o A new BRAVIA CORE Calibrated Mode automatically adjusts movies to the optimal picture settings to create a truly exceptional at-home movie viewing experience.

· Sony collaborated closely with Netflix to produce Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode, a new display mode that leverages Sony’s BRAVIA XR ambient light sensor to ensure that the artistic intent is preserved in all lighting conditions.

· BRAVIA XR TVs are Perfect for PlayStation®5, as they are the only TVs that automatically adjust and optimize the picture to the best settings for the PlayStation®5 console, whether for gaming or watching a movie. Features 4K/120fps, as specified in HDMI 2.1, for smooth and clear movement for responsive gameplay.

Committed to Sustainability

· This year, select models use Sony-developed SORPLAS™, a 99% recycled plastic material that has reduced the amount of virgin plastic used by up to 60%.

· TV packaging size has also been reduced by approximately 15%, and features a significant reduction in ink (approx. 90%) and plastic (approx. 35%).

· BRAVIA CAM can recognize when viewers are no longer in front of the TV and dim the display to conserve energy.
