Sony Cognitive XR Processor: the new brain of Bravia TVs

In 2021, Sony is integrating a brand new processor into these Bravia televisions: the Sony Cognitive XR Processor. Behind this convoluted name is in fact a very intelligent processor which will analyze a large number of elements on each image to improve its rendering. One of the flagship features of this new processor is its ability to identify the main subjects of an image in order to make them stand out better. In the same way as a human eye, a focus takes place in order to make these subjects sharper and more colorful and therefore to better highlight them on the screen.

This processor also supports essential features of high-end 2021 televisions, such as upscalling or motion compensation. So you can get crisp, detailed images even when in motion and coming from a definition below 4K.

Sony Bravia XR: cut to meet the requirements of the PlayStation 5

Because it has special requirements, the PlayStation 5 does not reveal its full potential with all televisions on the market. Fortunately, Sony Bravia XR televisions have everything the console needs to offer the best gaming experience. There are naturally HDMI 2.1 ports, which allow the console to display 4K at 120 frames per second, this that Sony Bravia XR televisions allow.

To enhance the player experience, the Sony Bravia XRs also support ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate). Behind these terms are in fact particularly practical additions to everyday life. For example, turning on the DualSense controller will also instantly turn on the console and the TV. The latter thus automatically switches to a game mode, which will reduce the latency time and adjust certain visual parameters. This gives you a perfectly calibrated image for your PlayStation 5, all in complete transparency and without any action on your part.

A future update will also add VRR, a technology that allows the TV to adjust its refresh rate with the number of frames per second sent by the console. This is what makes it possible to avoid the phenomenon of tearing, or a tearing of the image.

Finally, the Bravia XR televisions remote control also allows you to control your PlayStation 5 without having to use your controller. This feature is very useful if you use your game console as a multimedia tool, for streaming series or launching Blu-rays for example.

Sound immersion at the rendezvous

Indeed, the sound reproduction is not to be neglected when choosing a new television set, because it is this which gives relief to the content viewed. With its new range of Sony Bravia XR televisions, Sony brings several new features that will please fans of soundscapes.

The Sony Cognitive XR Processor first offers a function ofupscalling sound, capable of transforming a stereo or 4.1 source into 5.1.2. This means that Bravia XR televisions are Dolby Atmos compatible, since they know how to manage the vertical spatialization of sound.

On OLED televisions like the Sony Bravia XR A80J, it’s the glass panel that turns into a speaker. The whole slab vibrates to emit sound, which the viewer perceives directly in front of him. This leaves more room for woofers located at the rear of the television, which can thus concentrate on the reproduction of the bass. To go further, Sony has even integrated a new sound calibration system. A microphone placed in the remote control analyzes the placement of the television in the room to adapt the sound reproduction.
