Sony is updating its portfolio of televisions dedicated to corporate environments with new technologies that promise maximum image quality. The company has introduced a total of eight new TV models in the “Bravia” lineup with different cutouts and panel types, including Mini LED and QD-OLED solutions.
According to the company, all models will be available in international retail from June 2022. Check the details below.
Bravia LCD Mini LED 8K and 4K
The Bravia Z9K is possibly the most advanced model among the releases. This powerful 75 or 85 inch screen has 8K resolution with upscaling that reaches 60 Hz refresh rate. For those looking for an even smoother experience, it is possible to adjust the image transfer settings in 4K at 120 Hz.
This model features the Cognitive Processor XR, a dedicated processor that “analyzes and recreates content the same way humans see and hear it in the real world”, as Sony explains, promising maximum display quality with what it calls “ world’s first line of TV with cognitive intelligence.”
The panel is built with Mini LED technology to deliver the best contrast ratio on the market. Of course, this must take its toll, but the Japanese manufacturer has yet to confirm the values of the new products.
For those who don’t care so much about sharpness, the Mini LED line also offers 65, 75 and 85-inch options with 4K resolution — which should also ensure an excellent level of detail. In any case, users will get X-Wide Angle and X-Anti Reflection technologies, which prevent annoyance caused by the screen’s viewing angle.
QD-OLED technology is exclusive to the A95K, a powerful display offered in 55 or 65 inches with Ultra HD (4K) resolution and 120 Hz refresh rate. This model offers features such as the XR OLED Contrast Pro and Triluminos Max powered by the Cognitive Processor XR. The A95K is Dolby Vision and Atmos certified.

And speaking of high sound quality certification, this TV has speakers with Acoustic Surface Audio+ technologies, to make the audio seem to come directly from the screen; and Acoustic Center Sync, for the synchronized connection of branded soundbars that deliver a highly immersive experience.
The A95K has Android TV 10 and supports Apple AirPlay. Other smart functions of this model include voice commands and BRAVIA Cam, a camera that enables virtual meetings and automatically performs adjustments, such as display brightness level and sound volume, depending on the conditions of the environment in which it is installed.
The OLED line serves as a more affordable option by using technology with less production complexity. Here, we have two models: OLED A90K and OLED A80K.
The A90K features a 42-inch or 48-inch Ultra HD (4K) panel up to 120 Hz with Cognitive Processor XR. Android TV 10 works with the same option of 16 GB of internal memory to manage the applications integrated into the system. As with the A95K, we support HDR10, HLG, Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos specs.
The A80K is slightly simpler and forgoes voice commands in favor of a more affordable price. Either way, it still retains the powerful audio and image specifications and can be purchased with BRAVIA Cam. This model is offered in three sizes: 55, 65 or 77 inches, all with Ultra HD (4K) resolution.
Finally, the most basic line for professionals delivers a panel backlit by conventional LED and LCD technology. There are five size options: 43, 50, 55, 65, 75 or 85 inches distributed with “X80K”, “X81K” and “X85K” suffixes.
These models do not have the Cognitive Processor XR and therefore Acoustic Surface Audio+ is not supported. Instead, Sony utilizes the 4K HDR Processor X1 to manage content with wide dynamic range and deliver optimal brightness and black depth.
Despite the cost cuts, users will have access to content signed by Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, as well as being able to purchase versions with BRAVIA Cam.
