Picture : "Feature24p True Cinema, 4K Upscale (60p), Deep colour (12bit)"

Now 4k TV are all using 10 bit panel , so this Deep Colour (12 bit) features got what use ?

Look like the X800 has a better spec but no Dolby Vision....

Just saw the actual unit. It comes with a standard HDMI cable which is rated at 18Gbps. No orange sticker.

If I remember correctly, Dolby Vision supports 12 bit. So I think its spec higher for future proof.

Sony Days only start tomorrow. Saw at least 4-5 units at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk. And since Sony Days is at al authorized retailers, so all retailers with stock should be selling at 25% off.

For the X800 if the output from the HDMI cable to the tv show YCbCr (4:2:2) 24 bit or YCbCr (4:4:4) 24 bit, how will it impact the video quality.

Also 4k/60p or 4k/24p, which is better choice?
