Sony's HDR-compatible TVs start at $4500

21 Apr 2015 | Rasmus Larsen |

Sony has confirmed that its two X93 and X94C high-end TVs will officially carry the “HDR” stamp. The X93C will cost $4500 and the larger X94C will cost $8000.

HDR in Sony’s high-end TVs

The HDR standards have yet to be finalized so most manufacturers have been cautious outright stating that they will support HDR, often referring to it by other names.

Now Sony is ready to commit. Sony says that it will sell both the X93C and X94C as HDR-enabled TVs. However, be aware that only the X94C has the full-array local dimming system that is required for the full HDR effect.

HDR or high dynamic range can improve the contrast and will be implemented throughout the entire chain from camera to distribution to TV, for brighter whites and deeper blacks. Hollywood is committed to bringing HDR to cinemas and TVs and Sony says that it is also part of the UHD Alliance that will determine the best industry approach for Ultra HD.

Netflix and Amazon have said that they will start streaming HDR later this year. The new Ultra HD Blu-ray standard will also support HDR when the first players are released late this year.

The new TVs feature Android TV, Google Cast, and PlayStation Now. For more information on the new line-up see our overview here.

The 65-inch X93C will cost $4500 and the 75” X94C will cost $8000. In Europe, a 55” X93C will also be available for Ł2599 (65” for Ł3999). The X94C will cost Ł7499. The new TVs will be available starting in May. Sony’s other TVs are also hitting stores very soon. Prices for the new X9C - that will be released this summer - will be announced later.
