Dynamic HDR Enhancer

Our Dynamic HDR Enhancer processes HDR content frame by frame to deliver stunning contrast, which makes bright scenes brighter and dark scenes darker, for the ultimate HDR experience.

SXRD™ for uncompromising picture quality

Our advanced SXRD panel technology offers rich, inky blacks and clear cinematic motion and image smoothness. High heat and light resistance also ensures spectacularly high and stable brightness.
