Default Sony XBR-84X800 84" LED ultraHDTV 4k

The estimated retail price of Sony’s 80-inch XBR is $30,000 and due around the Holiday season.


The XBR6 and XBR7 lineup isn’t the most interesting compared to the current models, with modest upgrades like DLNA compliance, TV Guide IPG, "Enhanced" XMB interface, and now BRAVIA Sync capability. Also they sport four HDMI ports instead of three while still keeping both component inputs. There’s also a PC input as well, but it looks like the TVs shed the standard RCA inputs.


Here’s where the XBR8 gets really exciting though — TRILUMINOS RGB LED backlight! Yes! That’s what we’re talkin’ about, folks. In addition to the LED backlighting, Sony has thrown in their "Advanced Contrast Enhancer PRO", the new BRAVIA Engine 2 PRO, and all of the other features the XBR6 and XBR7 have.

Sounds like an amazing TV, but at $30,000 It's going to be a hard sell here.

So the RCA cables aren't component cables?

It shouldn't come as a surprise that Sony overpriced this item (they overprice everything they sell).

Most of the stories that came up in a search is that the Sony 84" will be edge-lit, not full array Triluminous backlit.

Sony's rolling out the new products thick and fast at its press conference at IFA, the latest beauty on display, this stunning 84-inch 4K Bravia TV. The new 3,840 x 2,160 LCD telly comes loaded with X-Reality Pro Engine to take care of the rendering, and a "10 Unit Live Speaker" system. No information on price or availability at this time, though we'll be sure to let you know once we do.


High-resolution large screen picture and high-quality powerful sound deliver an immersive experience, offering new ways for customers to enjoy television


Sony Corporation ("Sony") today announced that it will begin the phased launch of its latest BRAVIA LCD television, the KD-84X9005, in all global regions from the end of the year. The new BRAVIA boasts a 4K (3840 x 2160) LCD panel, in the industry's largest 84-inch class(*1) and incorporates Sony's '4K X-Reality PRO' super-resolution high picture quality engine. This formidable combination seamlessly delivers a high-resolution large-screen picture with high-quality powerful sound to provide viewers with immersive experiences, unlike anything offered by existing televisions.
(*1: as of August 29, 2012.)

4K TV KD-84X9005

This new 4K TV comes equipped with a 4K LCD panel comprising approximately 8.29 megapixels which is 4 times the resolution of Full HD standard, and incorporates '4K X-Reality PRO', Sony's super-resolution high picture quality engine optimized for 4K LCD TV. This engine is capable of reproducing a variety of content with different resolutions, such as HD digital broadcasts or Blu-ray discs content, into stunningly crisp, high-quality images with 4K resolution. Viewers will not be bothered by the pixels and notice images are breathtakingly realistic and beautifully clear with the 60-degree viewing angle, even if they sit as much as half the distance (*2) to the screen, as compared to when viewing Full HD (for which distance equal to 3 times the screen height is recommended).
(*2 Appropriate distance for comfortable viewing depends on the content, viewing environment as well as the physical conditions of viewers. We recommend viewing from a suitable distance while taking breaks at regular intervals.)

In addition, the combination of '10 Unit Live Speaker' side speaker system, which is optimised for this large-size screen, with Sony's unique high-quality sound signal-processing technology achieves powerful three-dimensional sound that envelops the viewer in position-orienting tones, from deep bass to high notes.

With its beautiful, large high-resolution screen and high-quality powerful sound, viewers can enjoy immersive experiences unlike anything offered by existing televisions, as if they were at a live entertainment venue or in a movie theater.

Viewers can also enjoy high resolution digital photographs on the large screen, by blowing up scenic pictures into large poster sizes, or enlarging photos of children into life-sized pictures for the whole family to see. Furthermore, special 'PlayMemories Studio' (*3), a special 'PlayStation®3 software, enables users to organize and playpack high resolution photographs with ease and comfort on the 4K television. Going forward, Sony aims to offer new television viewing styles by continuing to provide these kinds of new consumer experiences.(*3 available during current fiscal year ending March 2013)

Sony has been involved in building the 4K content viewing and creating environment in the professional field, from rolling out its 4K digital cinema projectors to movie theaters throughout the world, to preparing a range of production equipment, including the flagship CineAlta 'F65' camera capable of shooting 4K content. In the consumer electronic field, Sony has released the 'VPL-VW1000ES' home theater projector for family use which has been very favorably received.

Sony will strive to strengthen its 'BRAVIA products with the release of the kind of high-resolution, large-screen 4K TV, which maximizes its technical prowess in the field of 4K, and offers new ways to enjoy television.

I don't know if we would need BDXL as long as they start using the new H.265 codec. It's twice the compresion with no loss in quality.

Quote:
New compression standard could be in commercial products as early as next year

The Moving Picture Experts Group (MPEG) met recently to issue a draft international standard of a new video compression format offering twice the performance of current standards. The new video compression format is called High Efficiency Video Coating or HEVC. The new H.265 compression codec is roughly twice as effective as the current H.264/AVC standard.

“There’s a lot of industry interest in this because it means you can halve the bit rate and still achieve the same visual quality, or double the number of television channels with the same bandwidth, which will have an enormous impact on the industry,” says Per Fröjdh, Manager for Visual Technology at Ericsson Research, Group Function Technology, who organized the event as Chairman of the Swedish MPEG delegation.

H.265 could usher in ultra high definition television with significantly more clarity than the 1080p we have today. The new compression format will also significantly reduce the bandwidth required for streaming video on mobile networks where wireless spectrum is at a premium. The format will pave the way for wireless carriers to offer more video services within the confines of their available spectrum.

“Video accounts for the vast majority of all data sent over networks, and that proportion is increasing: by 2015, it is predicted to account for 90 percent of all network traffic,” Fröjdh says.

He believes that the HEVC format discussed during the meeting in Stockholm could find its way into commercial products as early as 2013.

“It will take time before it’s launched for a TV service, but adoption is much quicker in the mobile area, and we’ll probably see the first services for mobile use cases next year,” Fröjdh added.

If the past is any indicator, one need only wait to witness a dramatic price decrease. Sony's 70" Qualia TV debuted at about $13K, and eventually evolved into the XBR2 version at $6K. Similarly, Sony's first 70" flat panel, the XBR3 was originally $33,000 in 2007 (?), improved as the $22,000 XBR7 model in 2009, and finally discontinued last year when Sharp released 70" LED backlit models for around $2,000.

I remember when I worked for Sony (2006), the Sony Style store (Madison ave location) had a Qualia sitting there and kept dropping the price almost every day (and even threw in the stand for it free). I believe they eventually sold it but it got to the point that I thought it would never sell.

It's not called the XBR8, it's called the XBR-84X800. SMH
