The hardware includes Trilumios Display technology to enhance the display's colours and X-tended Dynamic Range to ensure more prominent whites and blacks, while the X-Reality Pro engine will upscale content.

The S90 will also come equipped with a 4.2 channel multi-angle live speaker system, incorporating the firm's ClearAudio+ Discrete Processing software for 360-degree sound.

Additional software features will include Social Viewing for watching with friends over Skype, a football-watching mode with built-in Twitter integration and the option to mirror content being streamed from a mobile device.

4K or Ultra-HD content is seen as the next frontier in home entertainment, with Netflix already announcing limited support across some of its titles.
