Sony introduces 2014 BRAVIA 4K TVs

Following the initial launch of its 84-inch 4K TV a couple of years back, Sony adds five new screen sizes in the lineup. These Ultra High Definition TVs sport the company’s proprietary technology like the 4K X-Reality PRO engine, TRILUMINOS Display, and X-tended Dynamic Range PRO to deliver only the most immersive viewing experience.
