• The next generation of HD is here

    Posted on 3rd July 2013 by Andy.


    Sony’s new FMP-X1 4K media player and distribution service has been announced for imminent release. 4K is the new high definition format (4096 x 2160) that Sony says delivers ‘a vibrant and natural picture that is four-times clearer than high definition’. The Japanese electronics giant already has 4K TVs available to buy - the 55-inch X9005A is priced around £4,000, while the 65-inch model is about £6,000. Although 4K content isn’t currently available these TVs do a good job of up-scaling HD content. But the release in the next month of the FMP-X1 media player will bring with it some new 4K content. The media player will come with 10 pre-loaded 4K movies and will also provide access to Sony’s own 4K distribution service, which launches later in the year, while 4K movies are also expected to be released on Blu-ray. Sony has always been ahead of the game at launching new formats in a bid to dominate the market and, without any other major contender in the wings, 4K looks likely to be the format to beat in the future.
