8K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate
The 8K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate features real-time object-based rendering for detailed images and upscaling everything you watch to near-8K HDR quality.
8K X-Reality PRO & Object-Based Super Resolution
8K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution use an 8K database to help sharpen and refine images in real time to reveal additional detail.
Backlight Master Drive
Backlight Master Drive technology is designed to dynamically change the light levels in sections of the screen depending on the content to enhance contrast and brightness. Its calibrated beam design helps it accurately send light only where it is needed to provide more accurate contrast. Balancing the light output across the screen, dark scenes seem darker and bright scenes appear brighter.
Front-Facing Speakers for Immersive Audio
Four front-facing speakers across the chassis of the TV help create wide, authentic sound that seems to come from where the action is occurring. With the action and sound more precisely aligned, your viewing experience feels more immersive.
IMAX Enhanced certification designates that the MASTER Z9G meets certain audio and video performance criteria set by a committee of IMAX and DTS engineers and A/V technical specialists. These criteria include image, sound, scale, and content quality. Onboard IMAX calibrated modes are set and approved by Hollywood colorists to help provide enhanced picture and sound for HDR UHD content.
