Sony Master Series 4K HDR TVs have a special Netflix optimization mode

Sony Master Series 4K HDR TVs have a special Netflix optimization mode

Sony says it developed Netflix Calibrated Mode in conjunction with the streaming giant and the mode activates when the TV detects specific metadata from the Netflix content. Sony representatives told us that the mode could theoretically be applied to existing models. Most importantly, Sony fixed the dreaded off-angle viewing issue that plagues every LED TV, where colors appear more washed out as you move towards the sides. First introduced previous year with Sony's A1 series, the Acoustic Surface Audio+ in the A9F and Z9F have been given an upgrade. Sony Electronics president and COO Mike Fasulo at an event in New York City showed off a new feature exclusive to Sony's new Master Series A9F OLED and Z9F LCD TVs - a special Netflix-watching mode the company says is comparable to watching on a master monitor used in motion picture production studios. Per The Verge, the A9F model specifically improves on Sony's Acoustic Surface speaker system by adding a center actuator and a subwoofer channel.

The Z9F LCD (in both 65-inch and 75-inch size) is a follow-up to 2016's Sony Z9D and it features a new X-Wide Angle mode created to boost off-axis viewing by reducing color shifts, plus X-Motion Clarity, which "minimizes motion blur without sacrificing screen brightness". There's Object-based Super Resolution, HDR remaster, Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR, dual database processing, X-Motion Clarity and X-tended Dynamic Range PRO, among other things.

Sony plans to launch the new Master Series televisions in the USA this fall season, but it hasn't yet revealed pricing and availability. They run the latest Android 8.0 Oreo OS and can make us of Google Assistant.
