Sony says it has implemented a solution for the phenomenon that certain oled TVs from the A1 series apply too aggressive dimming when static content, such as a logo or hud, comes into the picture. New firmware has solved the problem according to Sony.
The European division of Sony gave the website Flatpanelshd statement in which the company indicates that the problems with aggressive dimming oledelevies of the A1-series have been solved. The manufacturer reports with firmware version 6.5629 a solution to have released, so that the dimming algorithms of the A1 and the AF8 are the same. This means that both models must perform exactly the same. The AF8 did not suffer from the problems.
Sony already announced in June to work on a solution for the dimming problem at the A1-oledtelevisies. This problem occurs in at least some of the users who have installed firmware with version number 6.2858.
Flatpaneldhd reports that the new firmware fixes the problems for many A1 owners, but some users report that there is still a form dimming occurs, especially during sports scenes or playing games. This is probably due to the fact that the new firmware is being released gradually since 5 September, which means that not all A1 owners have been able to download it. By the end of September, all owners must have received the new firmware as an ota-update.
