Whilst Edge LED is energy efficient and provides plenty of rich colour, one row of LEDs to balance light through the whole picture provides less contrast than Full Array LED. Dark scenes are not as dark and bright scenes are not as bright.
Brighter highlights deeper blacks.
Intensity of the LEDs will be adjusted depending on the scene – light where light is needed, dark where darkness is needed.
The real benefits of Full Array LED with local dimming is that you get more realistic peaks of brightness, more accurate shadow detail and deeper, inkier blacks. A good example of this would be seeing the moon in the night sky. On an Edge-lit or Direct-lit TV, you would sacrifice the brightness of the moon for a blacker night sky (or vice-versa) and the blacks would still likely stray into blue or grey. On a Full Array LED TV with local dimming (like the X95H) you get a beautiful, natural picture, with a clear, bright moon and a dark, authentic night sky.
In addition to the contrast provided by Full Array LED, contrast is further enhanced by XR Contrast Booster. By precisely balancing light output across the screen by dimming some areas and boosting others, it adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow. As bright areas are brighter and dark areas are darker, scenes look more real with extra depth and detail.
For an audio experience that matches how we sense the world, XR Sound Position brings you the reality of sound behind the picture. On a BRAVIA XR Full Array LED TV, sound follows the action for a fully immersive experience.
With a BRAVIA XR Full Array LED TV, everything you watch gets the true surround sound treatment. XR Surround upscaling creates surround sound from the sides and vertically, so you can experience 3D audio without the need for in-ceiling or up-firing speakers.
