Sony announced its new range of TVs back in January with these latest goggleboxes, which include the premier A90J, getting a very clever new feature. Tucked behind the screen is a new Cognitive Processor XR which the Japanese tech firm reckons will allow its tellies to replicate the way humans see and hear. That basically means this chip can keep an eye on exactly what’s going on on the screen and adjust the picture accordingly for a more lifelike image.
A lot of televisions from other manufacturers have similar technology, but Sony says that whilst most TVs can detect and analyse certain elements – such as colour and contrast individually – the Cognitive Processor XR can monitor an array of elements all at once, just like our brains.
Along with an improved picture, this intelligence can also adapt the sound which will make watching a Premier League match or the latest blockbuster movie feel far more immersive. In addition, it also upconverts any sound to 3D surround sound, to deliver supreme realism with an immersive soundscape
This processor as it’s also able to analyse sound position as well. This allows the audio to perfectly match the placement on the screen making adding to the realism.
