Sony Electronics Inc. today announced new Z8H 8K LED, A8H and MASTER Series A9S OLED, and X950H and X900H 4K LED televisions. Offering a premium viewing experience consumers have come to expect from Sony, this new lineup features proprietary technologies previously only found in Sony's MASTER Series models.

The new TVs feature Sony's X1 Picture Processor, and TRILUMINOS Display technology, as well as a new Ambient Optimization feature to customize and calibrate your sound based on the environment.
The new Z8H is an 8K LED that comes in 85 and 75-inch models, featuring the above tech as well as new Frame Tweeter technology, which vibrates the frame of your TV to emit sound, so it feels like the sound is coming directly from the screen!

There's also a new MASTER Series A9S sized at 48" for customers who want a smaller option, as well as the A8H in 65 and 55-inch variants.
