CES 2013: Sony Showcases 84″ KD-84X9005 Simulview Capable TV
Sony showcased their 84″ KD-84X9005 Simulview capable TV at the 2013 CES.
SimulView gaming is a feature on the KD-84X9005 TV that presents two separate Full HD pictures. Each player watches their own independent screen through light easy to wear glasses that don’t need batteries.
When the Simulview technology first came out, it was on a small 24″ screen. Even though two players could play a multiplayer game without actually splitting up the screen, a lot of people wanted to see the technology on a bigger scale.
In order to satisfy their customers’ requests, Sony has come out with an 84″ screen. This Simulview capable screen was amazing. I got the chance to play Gran Turismo 5 with another person at CES and we each saw our own view.
According to Playstation Lifestyle, the KD-84X9005 also has full 3D capabilities. Not only that, instead of having a resolution of 1080P, it boasts a 4K resolution.
That’s 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160).
The KD-84X9005 also has a 50W front-facing, 2-way, 10-Unit speaker system with S-Force Front Surround 3D that simulates 5.1 sound, and a newly-developed XCA8-4K chip that upscales HD.
Sony is a leader in 4K digital cinematography and projection.
According to Sony.com, as of June 2012, there were over 13,000 Sony 4K digital cinema theaters — nearly 75% of all 4K theaters worldwide use Sony 4K digital cinema projectors.
Now, Sony brings the full 4K digital experience into the home with this tv’s stunning picture quality, whether you’re watching native 4K video or lower resolution video clips.
The price of the KD-84X9005 is set to be around $24,999
