The Sony X950H Series TV Is Making Waves


Sony’s feature-loaded X950H series TVs are getting attention from all over the Internet. Available in 49, 55, 65, 75, and 85" options, they support the HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision HDR formats, as well as Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant voice control. The Android TV operating system is built in, providing access to the Google Play store, so you can download a host of familiar apps, including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, and the Vewd web browser.

These TVs have native 4K UHD resolution, and the 4K X-Reality PRO engine processes Full HD video, upscaling it to near-4K quality with added texture and detail. TRILUMINOS technology and the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate processor help widen the color spectrum to produce more precise, lifelike color. You can even professionally calibrate the TV with the optional CalMAN auto-calibration software. Full-array backlighting allows for better control of brightness and contrast. Netflix Calibrated Mode is onboard to enhance Netflix original content. Additionally, the X950H series TVs are IMAX Enhanced certified, meaning they digitally remaster compatible content to provide sharper images and more powerful sound.

Speaking of audio, the X-950H uses S-Force Front Surround technology, which uses psychoacoustic algorithms to simulate a surround-sound effect with a wide soundstage. On top of that, the 55, 65, and 75" models have Acoustic Multi-Audio technology, which places two tweeters on the back of the TV designed to help the sound follow the on-screen action.

Sony also recently released its Envision TV AR app, which lets you virtually place any current Sony TV in your home. I tried it, and it lets you select a series, then a size. It then instructs you to slowly walk toward the surface where you want to place the TV. Once you see a grid pattern on your screen, you can tap the screen to place the TV. The app then tells you that you can walk around the back of the virtual TV to see its ports, which will be useful for anyone who wants to run their wires through the wall.
