Sony Bravia XBR 84X900, the first Sony 4K TV

During the first day of IFA 2012, revealed a giant flat screen TV 84 inches Bravia belonging to the series, called XBR-84X900. This TV is the first to have a 4K resolution, ie 2160 X 4096 pixels horizontal pixels vertically, which means about 4 times more pixel density than the current FullHD (1080p) and greater pixel density, better resolution . This resolution 4K is currently used to record Hollywood movies, which means that we would be seeing them in their original format (currently, although we have to FullHD 1080p TV’re seeing really smaller versions for our screens).

The XBR-84X900 has the ability to scale the images or videos with lower resolution and bring them to the resolution, according to the CEO of Sony , Kazuo Hirai. Will have to see if it can scale the size without losing resolution, as with current technology.

The cost of that TV is $ 25,000, which makes it a high-end product that is not intended for ordinary households, which are expected to arrive this technology accessible form circa 2017. It is rumored that the 4K resolution of this TV deal directly with another Sony product, the Playstation 4, which will support the 4K resolution. This resolution is gaining ground in high-end devices because 3D technology seems to become not as much as expected by manufacturers, so Sony itself has already BluRay players that support 4K for sale for about $ 200.

The Sony XBR-84X900 84-inch will be available for Christmas in the United States.
