Traditionally new TV sets focus on resolution, or backlighting, or some other tangible feature. Sony’s 2021 lineup focuses on something else entirely: processing. Dubbed the Cognitive Processor XR, the chip inside these new sets divides the screen into numerous zones and detects where the “focal point” is in the picture mimicking how the human brain works adjusting elements like color, contrast, and detail to deliver the best picture possible.
Enjoy 8K pictures that feel deep, natural, and real. Our revolutionary processor uses human perspective analysis to cross-analyze and optimize hundreds of thousands of elements in the blink of an eye. Combined with the precision of a Full Array LED panel, pictures pop from the screen with deep blacks and ultra-bright light.
See colors that are natural and beautiful to the human eye. The Cognitive Processor XR enables our unique display to access a wider palette and reproduce each color with the subtle differences seen in the real world. With extended hue and saturation, vivid shades, and realistic texture can be seen in the flowers. Even pale colors look realistic.
XR Triluminos Pro™
Powered by our Cognitive Processor XR, this TV reproduces color it in a way that humans find beautiful. See a wider palette of colors with an enhanced range of hue and saturation, allowing natural shades and precise details to be seen, even in dark scenes.
Dubbed the Cognitive Processor XR, the chip inside these new sets divides the screen into numerous zones and detects where the “focal point” is in the picture mimicking how the human brain works adjusting elements like color, contrast, and detail to deliver the best picture possible. The new chip will be available across a wide range of Sony’s 2021 sets, from the flagship 8K LED Master Series Z9J to the 4K X92.
Feel breathtaking contrast, just as in real life. Our Cognitive Processor XR cross-analyzes data, enhancing picture quality in the same way that the human eye focuses for real life color and depth. With XR Contrast Booster, bright areas are brighter and dark areas darker—no more details overwhelmed by shadow or lost in blown-out highlights.
XR Contrast Booster 15
By precisely balancing light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, XR Contrast Booster adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow. As bright areas are brighter and dark areas darker, scenes look more real with extra depth and detail.
XR HDR Remaster
With XR HDR Remaster, this TV can detect each object on screen, analyze its color and adjust contrast for even more realistic pictures. Object-based processing powered by BRAVIA XR™ takes precision to a whole new level by adding adjustment of hue, saturation, brightness, motion vector, bandwidth and more. The result is exceptionally real scenes with greater depth, lifelike textures, and natural colors.
Whatever the content or source, you’ll enjoy entertainment close to 8K resolution with XR 8K Upscaling.

8K XR Smoothing
XR Smoothing creates smooth, natural 8K pictures as you watch, without the “banding” that can occur on other TVs. Scenes are reproduced with thousands of tones, shades, and gradations, making them look incredibly real.
Watching sports and fast-moving movies just got a whole lot better. Our Cognitive Processor XR with XR Motion Clarity™ cross-analyzes data to ensure action stays smooth, bright, and clear with no blur.
XR Motion Clarity
On some screens, sports, and fast-action scenes can seem to go by in a blur. Our latest LED XR X-Motion Clarity™ technology keeps everything smooth, bright, and clear. Each ‘blink’ is individually controlled and its duration optimized, while brightness is boosted when needed, so you won’t miss a thing.
It’s sometimes difficult to watch dark movies in a bright room due to screen reflection. X-Anti Reflection reduces glare caused by sun- or lamplight so you can see pure blacks in brightness and enjoy clear pictures without distraction.
Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Sony’s original optical design to control light from the backlight, the X-Wide Angle panel ensures colors stay true from wherever you’re watching.
