Sony OLED A1E Series Overview

Sony’s new OLED A1E TV’s are on sale now and catching the eyes of those looking for their next home-run in their in-home entertainment experience. The new OLED adopted display has given Sony the ability to produce unrivaled pure blacks creating jaw-dropping contrast. Paired with its new design, audio tech, and X1 Extreme Processor Sony has created a spectacle for a TV.

 

One-Slate

Sony has paired its OLED A1 with a new design called the One-Slate. The TV is composed of two parts. One being the panel itself, and the other being a dual function kickstand which tucks the inputs and outputs into it. Along with a subwoofer built into the stand. The reasoning behind the added kickstand is to eliminate the gap between the bottom of the panel and the cabinet that the TV sat on to help the viewers focus on the picture. This design adds to the pleasurable picture, however, might also possess some drawbacks. Having a kickstand would mean that the TV cabinet that is being used would have to be completely free of clutter. Because any consoles or boxes that currently sit in that gap, that the stand is trying to get rid of, would have to be moved elsewhere since they would be in the way of the TV.

X1 Extreme Processor

The A1’s key to success is the combination of the OLED display and its X1 Extreme Processor. The secret to the great performance of OLED is its light emitting pixels that make up the entire screen. Since these tiny pixels are capable of creating its own light, it possesses the ability to only use the pixels that are required and essentially turn off the ones that aren’t. Creating absolute black and amazing vibrant color popping images because of the contrast being created. The Sony X1 Extreme Processor only enhances this advantage. The processor has the ability to focus on pockets of color on an image-by-image basis. For example, if it were to see a blue sky it will know to make that a richer more vibrant blue than a normal color. This upscales the quality and enhances the specific details of the different images that are being displayed. The processor also adds to the total brightness levels to create even more vibrant colors. The combination of both OLED and the X1 Extreme Processor tech creates an unbelievable image that rivals for the best on the market.

 

Acoustic Surface 

The A1 has significantly brighter images and has great viewing angles however the true innovation is in its new sound system called, “Acoustic Surface”. Acoustic Surface is where the display itself transmits sounds through vibrations rather than a separate set of speakers. This sound actually comes directly from the screen which helps to sync up the sound with the video more accurately.

 

The Bottom Line – OLED A1E Series at Starpower

People are unsure if the new design and expensive price is worth what is seemingly being promised and whether or not the new Acoustic Surface tech will produce effective sound. However, Starpower customers continue to be amazed at the picture quality as well as the sound quality when they demo the new technology on our showroom floor. Our bottom line? We think this series of televisions features best-in-class picture quality that will knock your socks off. The combination of the OLED blacks and the X1 Extreme Processor makes beautiful images that are unrivaled by competitors. And it is that quality that makes the Sony A1E TV’s a spectacle to witness in your home.

QLED vs. OLED – Different Names, Totally Different Technology

Qled

Oled-Vs-Qled-Comparsion

Starpower Audio/Video is the leader in QLED and OLED technology. Compare and Contrast the Differences between QLED and OLED in-store or online.

OLED has previously dominated the industry through its claimed better contrast, wider color range, ultra thin display, and better durability than the rivaled LCD TV’s. However with the new QLED TV’s well on their way, people begin to wonder if OLED is still the top dog on the market. The unveiling of Samsung’s new QLED TV’s has given rise to speculation on whether it can rival or surpass LG’s OLED tech.

 

Overview of OLED

OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) TVs are largely successful as they do not require a backlight as do competing products. Instead they create light through the application of electricity through thin films of organic molecules. This gives OLED the ability to only use colors and emit light when needed. This makes OLED the only tech that can create an absolute black, making the color contrast near unlimited. Contrast ratio is considered one of, if not the most important aspects when it comes to creating a good quality picture. This makes OLED very attractive and desirable for an exhilarating home entertainment experience.

Overview of QLED: Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode

QLED (Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode) was just recently released by Samsung who claims it to be, “The Next Innovation in TV.” Quantum Dot technology uses tiny particles between 2 and 10 nanometers in diameter. These tiny particles have the ability to give off more vibrant lights, brightness, and a wider diverse color range. It’s brightness ranges from 1500-2000 nits opposed to OLEDs 600 nits. Though the level of brightness is much higher than their competitor, QLED still manages to use only half of the power that OLED uses to run. Not only do these Quantum Dots give off a way higher range of brightness and color but they are also seeming to be more cost effective to produce. Samsung has also made strides in improving the contrast ratio with their new technology, however still not to the same level as the OLED.

Breaking Down QLED

Though OLED has proven to be effective on the market and popular among consumer demand, the new QLED TVs seem to be a bigger bang for your buck. QLED produces a level of brightness and vibrant colors that have not been previously accomplished as well as being energy efficient. All while being more cost effective to mass produce and buy than OLED. Samsung’s new QLED tech seems to have the tools to launch itself into a huge success in the in-home entertainment market. It is seemingly more than capable to hold its own against competitors and possesses the potential to surpass even the most dominant in the industry.

Sony’s Exciting New 4K and OLED TVs for 2017

Sony Oled

Sony-Xbr-A1E-4K-Oled-Tv-Cover

Sony unveiled its new and impressive lineup of OLED and LED 4K TVs at CES 2017.

The XBR-A1E Bravia OLED is Sony’s flagship series for 2017. The OLED series comes in 55, 65 and 77-inch sizes. According to Sony moving to OLED allows it to offer a TV with “unprecedented black levels, rich and lifelike color, dynamic contrast, blur-less image, and a wide viewing angle.”

Support for Dolby Vision HDR is built in, and a chip called the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme powers the whole thing. The TV is very, very thin and looks elegant.

 

Sony-Xbr-A1E-4K-Oled-Tv

New Sony OLED is Coming Soon!

The audio technology in the OLED TVs is unconventional and exciting. Sony came up with something it’s calling Acoustic Surface Sound Technology. So audio from your movies and TV shows will sound like it’s coming directly from the display itself. Sony claims this approach “produces a wide sound and image synchronization from all angles, even off to the sides.”

All of the new TVs are also the company’s first to integrate with the Google Home smart speaker. So, you can issue voice commands to the TVs from the smart speaker.

Sony’s new OLED Bravia runs Android TV. The OS provides access to Sony’s Ultra 4K HDR streaming service and to Sony’s PlayStation Vue, a live TV-streaming service. Android TV also features Chrome Cast, enabling the TV to play audio and video content from Cast-enabled apps on smartphones, tablets, and PCs.

 

Sony-Xbr-X930E-X940E-4K-Tv

Sony X930E and X940E Series

The new 4K X930E/X940E series are successors to last year’s X930D/X940D series which consisted on some of the best 4K TVs for 2016. They’ve been upgraded with faster performance compared to last year’s line and also support Dolby Vision and improved HDR output. The X930E comes in 55 and 65- inch variants whereas the X940E has 75-inch screen size.

The two X930E models feature Sony’s upgraded Slim Backlight Drive+ technology, a grid-array edge lighting that delivers more precise local-dimming control than the previous iteration of the technology.

The X940E doesn’t include Slim Backlight Drive+ but does feature a full-array direct LED backlighting according to Sony.

The XBR-X930E/X940E series is also powered by Sony’s 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme chip, which the company said offers 40 percent more real-time processing power than 4K Processor X1.

OLED VS. LED | Which Is Better?

Oled And Led

The Difference Between OLED and LED

Although, just couple of letters are altered or added in their names, does not mean they are similar. Everything is different between OLED and LED. OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode. “Organic” refers to the carbon film before the glass screen. When an electric current is passed through, OLED panels omit their own light.

In LCD, cells require an external light source, like a huge backlight for brightness. This backlight is what makes the distinction in these technologies. A traditional LCD screen has a backlight called a cold-cathode fluorescent light also called as CCFL. It is uniform across the entire back of screen. This means that irrespective of the image being black or white, it is being illuminated by same brightness across the panel.

Engineers at major tech-giants like Samsung and Sony introduced a new technology for backlight, which was basically an array of LEDs. So, for portions of the screen where the picture is black, those respective LEDs won’t be turned on. This makes black portion of the picture appear blacker.

Lg-Oled-Perfect-Black

LEDs are a better solution than LCDs with CCFL technology. However, it has its flaws. LEDs face a problem called as ‘blooming’. In this effect LED light from bright portions of the image bleed to the black portions. The reason for this is the pixels themselves are not the elements producing the light. They have to rely on backlight to turn off on their behalf.

This is where things get drastically different when it comes to OLED. The light is produced by the pixels themselves. So, if they have to black they can completely turn off.

 

The Advantages To OLED TVs

Oled-Vs-Lcd

The biggest advantage to someone watching and OLED TV is the extravagantly vibrant image. This is achieved by very dark blacks and brightness of whites the OLED panel can produce. Manufacturers use the term “infinite contrast” to describe how the “absolute” black is achieved instead of “relative” black where relative blackness is how dark a pixel can get when compared to the brightest pixel on the screen.

Apart from the image vibrancy, responsive and smoothness of the display are far better compared to the LCDs and LEDs. So, gamers and home cinema enthusiasts will doubtlessly love the experience. OLEDs have a refresh rate 1000 times faster (as low as 0.001 ms) than a standard LED backlit LCD panels.

Since the light source is very tiny, screen depth has also reduced. So, this means you are getting super deep blacks, bright whites, greater color accuracy, smooth responsive motion and a very thin and light form factor. Can’t get better than this right!

 

3D OLED TVs

Although 3D is not as hyped today as once it was, manufacturers are including it in their high-end models. In most cases this is passive kind of 3D. This allows for cheaper glasses and less screen flicker.

OLED: The New Category of TV

Starpower Oled: The New Category Of Tv

What is OLED?

OLED (organic light-emitting diodes) TVs use a revolutionary technology with self-lighting pixels for vivid color and infinite contrast. OLEDs work by putting electricity through certain materials that glow these specific colors. No other TV technology creates light directly like this. This allows OLED TVs to be thinner, lighter, more efficient, and better-performing than most current television technology. Each pixel can be shut off, for an absolute black (no other tech can do this), meaning an actual infinite contrast ratio.

The Best 4K OLED TVs of 2016

 

OLED TVs – Perfect Black

Contrast Ratio is considered the key indicator of picture quality. LG OLED TV has self-lighting pixels that can switch off completely to achieve perfect black for infinite contrast, so images come alive with breathtaking detail. Colors look best against a pure black background, images are now more vibrant and detailed.

 

OLED TV Design

OLED technology enables a design that is ultra-thin and light. The majority of the TV itself consists of a panel-on-glass design, exceedingly thin at just 2.57 millimeters (one-tenth on an inch), with the OLED panel mounted directly on a piece of glass, complete with rounded transparent edges.

Home Theater – Trending Technologies

Starpower Home Theater - Trending Technologies

OLED, LED, Plasma, Projector, 4K, 2K, Curve Screen? Selecting the right technology can be very confusing.

Having the latest technology isn’t for everyone; however, there are always those who want to have the latest and greatest in electronics.

Remember when a 50-inch screen seemed big? Nowadays, you have 60-, 65-, 70- and even 90-inch flatscreens. Projectors can take you over 200 inches! Just like flat panels, projector technology has come a long way, and even the susceptibility to light has
been greatly improved.

If you are unsure about the current quality of projectors, check out interactive media rooms in a showroom. Prior to making a decision, you should understand that the more engaged all of your senses are, the greater the viewing experience. For example, besides great quality video and audio, today you can become immersed in your movie with theater seats that move with the action.

You might be wondering what the difference is between 4K Ultra HD and 1080p Full HD. Prior to high definition, televisions had only a few hundred lines of resolution. More lines of resolution means more opportunity to create a life-like picture. However, it does not always mean a better picture. The number represents the number of lines used to create the image. Therefore, 1080 is the horizontal lines of vertical resolution. The “i” or “p” on the end, as in 1080i or 1080p, stands for “interlaced” and “progressive.” Those letters stand for speed in which the images are processed.

There is still much to decide, as the “quality” of how those lines are processed is a huge difference. For example, a budget-priced TV touting 1080p resolution may be inferior in picture quality to a 720p set. This is why you need to be careful when purchasing something you will be using several hours a day. You need to experience the difference.

Sony 4K Projector

When most people walk past a 4K flatscreen, they are amazed by the picture quality, which is four times clearer than regular HD. It offers amazing color and clarity with finer detail, greater texture and almost photographic quality smoothness. It seems as if you could reach out and grab items on the screen. This can be attributed to the 8 million pixels in 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) verses the 2 million pixels in 1080p (1920 x 1080). Everyone can clearly see the incredible difference between a 1080p and 4K flatscreens when they are side-by-side; however, they assume that 4K technology pricing is out of reach. Like most technology, pricing is going down and is much more affordable than before.

Of course, there are considerations that you should discuss with a sales professional, such as the content available and what your current picture will look like with the 4K resolution. The next time you are in the market for a new TV, consider these reasons for making the leap to 4K:

  • Amazing picture quality difference between Full HD and Ultra HD TV
  • Ultra HD 4K is the defacto next generation of television
  • More 4K Ultra HD content is coming – Some sets offer more available content and better “upconverting” (taking 2k content and making it look close to 4k)
  • 4K Blu-ray is also coming soon, making available thousands of movie titles
  • Better viewing from a variety of distances – Better technology, better processing
  • 4K gaming
  • 4K consumer video cameras are being developed
  • 4K is more affordable than ever
