SAN DIEGO, June 28, 2016 – Sony Electronics released the pricing and availability today of three new 4K Ultra HD television series: the XBR-X800D, the XBR-X750D, and the XBR-X700D. Ideal for a variety of room sizes and customer needs, all of these televisions deliver a superior 4K viewing experience as well as near 4K quality up-conversion from HD sources. With over eight million pixels, these Sony 4K TVs offer intense detail and stunning picture quality, providing more than four times the detail of Full HD. Movies, TV shows, photos, and content from your smartphone looks better thanks to our cutting edge 4K and exclusive Sony technologies.

The XBR-X800D series also features High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatibility to receive and process the new video standard. The XBR-X750D and XBR-X700D TVs will be upgradable to HDR compatibility via a firmware update later this year. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR will change the way you look at TV with added detail, color and contrast.
