Sony Electronics unveiled this month the new 4K Ultra HD Video Player, a hard-disc server that connects to Sony’s 84” 4K LED TV (XBR-84X900), allowing consumers to view 4K resolution movies and short form 4K videos.
Available now in the U.S. as a bonus to customers purchasing the Sony 4K LED TV, the video player comes loaded with content, including both full length Hollywood features and a gallery of videos, creating the first true home 4K experience.
As a standalone unit, the Sony XBR-84X900 TV already upscales all video inputs, including the more than 7,000 Blu-ray Disc titles currently in distribution, to a near-4K resolution through the use of Sony’s proprietary 4K X-Reality PRO three-chip picture engine. Now, with the new video player, consumers can for the first time enjoy 4K Ultra HD video in the home.
The company’s 4K Ultra HD Home Experience includes the 84″ 4K LED TV, the Video Player, and an Xperia™ Tablet S that serves as a remote control through an app. Pre-loaded onto the Video Player will be the first ever collection of 10 full-length feature films presented in native 4K for the home (all from Sony Pictures, of course).
In addition to the full length features, the Video Player will come pre-loaded with a gallery of 4K video shorts, including Red Bull Media House’s exclusive 4K videos. Additionally, Sony’s 4K Ultra HD delivery solution is designed to be updated with additional 4K titles and video clips.
