LOS ANGELES Sony Electronics is stepping up its television game.
The tech giant announced the launch of its Z Series of TVs, a line of 4K HDR Ultra HD models, at an event on Wednesday.
The TVs have displays that are said to feature ultra-contrast and more realistic, accurate color. They also boast Backlight Master Drive Technology, which Sony says expands brightness and contrast, and features a LED structure that delivers “deep blacks and dazzling lights.”
