CES 2017: Sony Announces 3 Bravia OLED Sets, No Speakers Required

LG calls this "picture on wall", although that thickness does mean that you don't plug additional inputs directly into the TV itself, but instead apparently to a breakout box located elsewhere.

The Japanese tech giant's new Bravia OLED 4K high dynamic range (HDR) TV series, announced at electronics show CES, feature Acoustic Surface sound technology, which it claims marries audio with image more closely than conventional sets. Of course, the need to place a large soundbar underneath it can dampen that effect, but the electronics that drive the TV have to go somewhere.

TCL's P-Series Roku 4K TVs offer Dolby Vision HDR and HDR Contrast Control Zones, which individually optimizes content across 72 zones; they feature Roku Creative Pro upscaling as well. The first model in the US was a 55-inch HD screen that cost $15,000, but prices have been dropping fast: LG's latest 55-inch, 4K-resolution model lists for $2,500.

We've seen this in the LG Signature OLEDG6P and OLEDB6P series, both PCMag Editors' Choices for their picture quality. LG's new 4K HDR OLED TV is just 2.57mm thick and, what's more, there's Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos built-in. OLED screens are based on a fundamentally different technology from the dominant LCD and produce light from fluorescence of an organic element. This doesn't just help display content that was processed for HDR, but it can also take any content and improve it to near-HDR quality.

The new Bravia A1E Series TVs come in 77, 65, and 55-inch configurations.

The new OLED TVs "apply the same technology and expertise used in the majority of premium Hollywood productions from moves to episodic series", according to the statement.

As far as the release of the Sony A1E speakerless TVs are concerned, the devices are said to start shipping during late 2017.

The Korean tech firm said it partnered with the U.S. audio firm Dolby and U.S. postproduction company Technicolor for the premium television to adopt the best definition, design and sound technologies.

On the other hand, the X930E Series is offered in 65-inch and 55-inch class 4K HDR TV class models.

While Samsung and LG each started with a TV that nearly had a panel grown in a lab, the latter is the one that stayed with the technology, and has been refining it for the past few years.
