Sony's Z4500 with 200Hz Motion Plus: the difference is visible in real life, honest

Sony's Z4500 TV with "200Hz Motion Plus" technology will, the company claied, yield the “smoothest and crispest LCD image ever”. Sophisticated algorithms are used to create three additional frames for every original in the source signal, upping the frame rate from 50 a second to 200.

A complementary image enhancement technology called Image Blur Reduction also boosts the final picture's sharpness, by crisping up the source, frame by frame, before it is processed by the 200Hz interpolator.

The Z4500 has a 80,000:1 contrast ratio and is vertified by the Digital Living Network Alliance to enable simple streaming of content over a network from PCs and other devices.

When Register Hardware took a few minutes to analyse the set’s picture clarity at IFA in Berlin today, it was indeed extremely smooth and crisp.

Sony promised to launch the Z4500 into Europe in time for Christmas, but a price hasn’t been mentioned yet.
