4K Ultra HD Latest 4K TV Standards: The Sony XBR-X850C Series has the latest 4K standards including the HEVC (H.265) decoder.

This will allow action movies, 4K camcorder video, and sports to operate at the higher 60fps for smoother image quality.

Smart-Review Commentary: For 2015, Sony’s top rated 75-Inch 4K XBR X850C Series is one of the best LED TVs made by Sony. The new model has been slimmed down, and weighs substantially less than previous models. This 4K TV will give you 4 times more pixels than normal HD TVs (8 megapixels of resolution vs. 2 megapixels for regular HD). This allows you to sit much closer to the TV without seeing the individual pixels. By sitting closer, you will have an immersive movie theater experience. Sony has over 10 years of experience with cinema 4K Projectors, as most theaters today have a Sony projector installed. We previewed the X850C series at CES 2015, and the picture was outstanding. This TV is also a 3D TV and uses active 3D glasses (sold separately). It has the latest Dual Band WiFi standards for fast 4K video streaming and Smart TV function, Android TV, a TRILUMINOS™ Display (Sony’s version of Quantum Dots ) , Motionflow® XR960, and Sony’s 4K X-Reality™ Pro Engine.

The XBR-X850C Series 4K TV has a TRILUMINOS™ Panel

The X-Reality pro engine can upconvert all of your regular HD up to near 4K quality. The new Android TV interface provides internet content such as Netflix®, Amazon Prime, YouTube™, Pandora, Facebook, Skype, and a browser. You can also install Apps from Google Play. The TV comes with 2 remotes. A regular remote, and a Touchpad Remote for Smart TV and Web browsing functions. Netflix, Amazon, Dish, DirecTV and others have 4K content available in 2015, and this TV is ready with its built-in HEVC (H.265) decoder. The X850C series is Sony’s lowest priced 4K TV with a TRILUMINOS™ panel which was previously only available on Sony’s high end TVs. The Frame Dimming LED backlighting provides local dimming for best contrast. These upgrades provide exceptional colors, higher contrast and unformity, as well as energy savings. As usual, Sony has produced a very striking and stylish set, along with a very strong feature set. This set has HDMI 2.0 (the latest standard), which will allow the highest frame-rates of 4K video. It is future ready and supports next generation 4K players and services. The XBR-75X850C is an exceptional 4K TV, a great value, and is a Smart-Review top pick for 2015 for 4K TVs.
