- HDMI 2.0: The XBR-X850B series TV is fitted with four
HDMI 2.0 inputs to connect your high-definition sources; such as Blu-ray/DVD
player, Satellite/Cable receiver, game system, and AV receiver. In
addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI
inputs will accept 4K/60Hz, 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i
- HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported only by the TV's
HDMI 1 & 2 inputs. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content
Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for
compatibility with 4K Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
- 4:2:0 Color Subsampling: All of the TV HDMI inputs
support 4:2:0 color subsampling. This ratio indicates that the chromo

to 4:2:2, which only reduces horizontal chroma resolution.
- Component & Composite Video: The component video input
will accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. If needed,

instead. The composite video input will support 480i video signals only.

24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second
(fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an
opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high
definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes
advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television
producing images that are smooth and natural looking.
MHL Compatible: The HDMI 2 and 4 input are designed for the
connection of select mobile phones and other portable electronic devices using
the new MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) standard. Simply plug your MHL
compatible smartphone into the TV's HDMI 2 or 4 (MHL) input using the HDMI cable
that is included with your mobile phone. MHL allows you to display full 1080p
video and still images on the Sony TV from your mobile smartphone. The TV's IR
remote can be used to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause,
