I figured we might as well start this thread since information on it is beginning to leak out.

This is the successor to the Sony HX929 local dimming line.

Rumors suggest we could see this set hitting the market as early as August or September.

450

http://www.morfare.com/asp/product/5504/Sony-KDL-46HX950-46-117-cm-Yeni-Intelligent-Peak-LED-TV

Features (Google translated):

XR 800 Hz Motionflow
New Intelligent Peak LED
Built-in Wi-Fi
X-Realty PRO
Panel: 200 Hz
Motionflow: 800 Hz
3D: 4 times faster than the 3D Panel
Image Processor: X-PRO Realty
Adding Frame: Yes
Back Light: New Intelligent Edge LED, Local Dimming (The link above lists it as edge, but their other page on the website lists it as Peak instead. I believe the edge is nothing more than a typo.)
Resolution: FullHD
Internet: Wireless, LAN
HDMI: 4 pcs
USB Media Player: jpeg, mp3, divx, xvid, mpeg4
Photo Frame Mode
Bass Booster
Sony Entertainment Network
Remote Keyboard
Media Remote
Wi-Fi Direct Mode

Udate to clear up some confusion: Intelligent Peak LED is local dimming. According to Sony, Unlike Edge LED, Intelligent Peak LED backlighting uses many more white LEDs arranged directly behind the TV’s LCD screen to illuminate the picture – this is commonly known as Full or Direct LED. By controlling the light output of individual blocks of these LEDs, the system can light very specific parts of the picture, while dimming others to deepest blacks. It even provides localised ‘peak white’ lighting boosts, giving your television picture heightened contrast and detail; a lit match in a darkened room has never burned so bright.

Its Edge-Lit and the native panel refresh rate lost 40hz - seems like an odd "successor".

Not too sure that it's edge-lit, as "Intelligent Peak LED" is (currently, at least) Sony's terminology for Local-Dimming LED full-array tech. I don't think Sony would succeed the highly-regarded 929 with an edge-lit set, but it's happened before (see: the XBR10 and the XBRLX900). Motionflow XR 800 is the euro equivalent to the NA Motionflow XR 960. Guess we'll have to wait and see more details flesh out to be sure. Either way, Sony is one of the few mfgs left to focus on image quality so I'm excited to see what they come up with.

We have this 'information' for a month now. The 950 will be for sale in september/december. Such a thread should be started once the flatscreen is for sale, ^^this is the 950 anticipation thread. I agree that only a full array Local Dimming should be referred to as 'succesor' (The succesor of the XBR8 (2008) was the XBR HX909 (2010), the succesor of the XBR HX909 (2010) is the XBR HX929 (2011+2012!).

But the link states " Intelligent Edge Led", what would that be if it isn't Edge LED?

Looking at Davids explanations over at CNET, my guess would be that this is infact an Edge lit LED rather than a full array, am I wrong?

I dont where you are getting that this may be edge lit. I did not see anything in the link you provided that it was. All I see is "intelligent peak LED". I hope that it is not(edge lit). I'm really looking forward to this tv. It's either this, or VT50.

Although I must admit to guessing here, but if "Intelligent Edge LED" doesnt mean it has the LEDs mounted on the edges (ie Edge lit), what else could it be? I must admit that it is confusing though, as the HX850 (which we know is edge lit) is labeled as "Backlight Type : Dynamic Edge LED"

I'm pretty sure the edge in that listing was just a typo since it contradicts the official Sony documentation.

In the official documentation from that image, Intelligent Peak LED is in fact local dimming. Sony has always used that term exclusively for its local dimming line. I certainly hope this is the case as after trying out a 929, I decided to pass on it and wait for this guy in hopes of a reduction to the blooming. Hopefully it'll be a bit quicker in input lag like the HX850 is too since the 929 was just at the point where I could detect a slight lag in games.

But local dimming and full array are 2 different things, right? There are Edge lit LCD:s that have local dimming as far as I know.

It's true local dimming.

Here's the full details.

Intelligent Peak LED - truly cinematic

I just posted in the other thread, please see it here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1415450/when-is-sony-hx950-release-date/30#post_22327733

I found the 55" and 65" at CDW's webpage in Canada. They have it in their system so maybe it is coming out very soon? It's fueling my curiosity...
