Sony’s new powerful cognitive processor XR

Taking picture and sound processing to the higher level, Sony’S XR cognitive processor combines artificial intelligence with cognitive intelligence to achieve an image balance that is more suitable for humans rather than simple algorithms. The processor analyzes each element of the image to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The processor also improves low-resolution images, giving smoother, more natural images from sources such as terrestrial television.

As large as many projection screens, this Sony BRAVIA XR85Z9JU TV strikes the ideal balance between the movie Master player when you want it and discreet, everyday TV when you don’t.Sony BRAVIA XR-85Z9J

Full array LED backlight with XR Triluminos Pro and XR Contrast Booster 15
The Sony Bravia XR-85Z9J uses a full array LED backlight for a bright, even backlight. XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR color to deliver the most authentic and natural color. For the highest levels of contrast and detail, XR Contrast Booster 15 adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail in darker areas.

Smoother images with XR Motion Clarity and 8K XR Smoothing
Sony’S XR X-Motion Clarity is Sony’s latest processor and maximizes the advantage of 8K resolution.by controlling the backlight more precisely, this 85 ” Sony TV offers greater realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies. 8K XR smoothing reduces the” banding ” effect that can affect other 8K TVs. this means you get the most out of 8K detail with extra smooth motion.Sony BRAVIA XR-85Z9J

Image quality as the creator intended: NCM, IMAX Enhanced, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-85z9j reproduces images, just as the creator intended. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses its proprietary Digital remaster (DMR) technology to deliver ultra-vivid images. If you’re a movie buff, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving it an image much closer to the director’s intention. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who want to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.

XR audio position with 3D surround upscaling for surround sound
As part of the XR cognitive processor, XR sound positioning works to synchronize sound with the correct part of the image, as accurately as possible. XR Surround With 3D Surround Upscaling takes a normal audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect-making you feel more immersed in the action. Video: Sony Europe/YouTube

Multi-audio acoustic for dynamic sound
Sony’s unique Multi audio acoustic speaker system improves synchronization between what you see and what you hear. Frame speakers identify the sound of the action, increasing the sense of connection and realism. The front subwoofers enhance the bass, delivering the powerful sound that action movies and large-scale soundtracks deserve. BRAVIA XR-85Z9J
