We went to the Sony booth this year where they showed off their new 84" 4K television, the XBR-84X900, which runs on their X-Reality Pro engine. It's got four times the resolution of a regular 1080p high definition television (3,840 x 2,160). The newly-developed XCA8-4K chip upscales HD (or lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images from all sources and bringing them up to the 4K screen. It's LED backlit and, while I thought my Sharp 60" flat panel back home looked awesome, this television is literally four times that resolution. It comes with 4 pairs of 3D glasses. Two of them are regular passive glasses and two of them are SimulView, which is particularly handy for gaming. The Playstation 3 can utilize a SimulView-compatible game and then two people can play at the same time and view two completely different images. It's not split screen anymore, although with 84" can you really complain? Still, both players get their own 84" display which makes it even that much more appealing.
