Sony starts rolling out HDMI 2.0 update for X9 TVs

28 Nov 2013 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony promised to roll out an update to enable HDMI 2.0 on its X9 series 4K TVs. The firmware update has started rolling out in Japan, and should make it to USA and Europe soon.

Sony starts rolling out HDMI 2.0 update

Sony was one of the first TV makers to introduce 4K TVs, and even though the 4K TVs in the X9 series were introduced this summer, Sony had prepared them for HDMI 2.0 that was not officially announced until September.

Both the 55 and 65 inch X9 TVs are eligible for the free software update, but Sony’s 84” 4K TV requires a hardware update. Only one of the four HDMI ports will be updated to HDMI 2.0. The new HDMI 2.0 standard allows 4K TVs to receive 4K signals at up to 60fps (frames per second) and 4K 3D signals. The older HDMI 1.4 only supports 4K in up to 30fps.

The update is available to download in Japan via Sony’s website, but not yet via an over-the-air update. Sony has not announced when it will be available for USA and Europe, but has previously promised to deliver it before the end of 2013.

The HDMI 2.0 update for Sony’s cheaper X8 4K TVs has also started rolling out in Japan.
