Sony is introducing a ‘Perfect for PlayStation®5’ campaign for BRAVIA XR TVs , specially designed to work perfectly with the PlayStation 5 (PS5™) and offer a fantastic gaming experience with immersive pictures and sound. 

‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ TVs will bring in two brand-new PS5 exclusive features  – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode. They also support frame rates up to 120fps in a super-crisp 4K resolution as specified in HDMI 2.1 in compatible games. Additionally, with input lag as low as 6.0ms on the Z9J  models, you’ll achieve extraordinary smoothness and responsiveness in the first-person shooter, sports and high-performance games with the instant on-screen action.

‘Perfect for PlayStation®5’ BRAVIA XR-exclusive features are as below.

Auto HDR Tone Mapping 

With Auto HDR Tone Mapping*, the HDR settings will be optimized instantly during your PS5 initial setup. The PS5 will automatically recognize individual BRAVIA TV models and select the best HDR setting for the TV accordingly. With the optimized HDR tone mapping level to your BRAVIA display specification, you’ll see crucial details and colours even in high contrast scenes. For instance, you will get the addition of detailed objects on the track in Gran Turismo™ 7   so you know just how to make your next move.

Auto Genre Picture Mode  

BRAVIA XR TVs can detect whether you are playing a game or watching movies and shows. With Auto Genre Picture Mode, your TV automatically switches into Game Mode when gaming, which minimises input lag to make the action more responsive or to Standard Mode when watching movies via a streaming service or from an Ultra HD Blu-ray™ disc on the PS5, which shifts focus to picture processing for a more expressive picture.

Software updates on both PS5 and BRAVIA are required. Available by the end of January 2022 for both new features.
