Sony opens US UHD TV pre-orders April 21st, shows 4K player
Sony will be opening up two new Ultra HD televisions for pre-order in the United States on April 21st, alongside an announcement for the company's <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282790==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/11/29/sony.will.give.early.adopters.a.server.containing. 10.uhdtv.movies.more/" rel='nofollow'>4K Media Player</a> and video distribution service. The 55-inch and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282791==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/07/sony.pushes.4k/" rel='nofollow'>65-inch sets</a>, both capable of displaying 4K-resolution content, will be priced considerably less than the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282792==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/09/06/aiming.for.shipping.retail.in.november/" rel='nofollow'>$25,000</a> flagship counterpart, measuring at 84 inches diagonally, but will still retain most of its feature set. <br />
<br />
The two UHDTVs, the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282793==http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langI d=-1&productId=8198552921666519131" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">XBR-65X900A</a> and <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282794==http://store.sony.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10551&storeId=10151&langI d=-1&productId=8198552921666519103" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">XBR-55X900A</a> for the 65-inch and 55-inch models respectively, offer displays using <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/282795==http://www.electronista.com/articles/13/01/16/quantum.dots.to.increase.color.range.by.50.percent/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">Triluminos</a> technology, image processing through a two-chip 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine, and edge-lit LED back-lighting. Smatphone mirroring is also available, while sound is provided through 65-Watt ferrofluid speakers. Four pairs of 3D glasses are also provided, though the TVs will only display 3D content at a 2K resolution and lower. <br />
<br />
In the summer, Sony will be offering 4K UHD TV customers the option to buy the FMP-X1 4K Media Player, which allows for 4K content playback. The unit will be loaded with 10 feature films and shorts, including Bad Teacher, Battle: Los Angeles, Taxi Driver, and the 2012 reboot of Total Recall, with an extra fee-based video distribution service due in the fall to provide more content. <br />
<br />
The 55-inch and 65-inch UHD TVs will cost $5,000 and $7,000 respectively, while the FMP-X1 4K Media Player will cost $700.
