The all-new Siri Remote, innovative color balance technology, and HDR with high refresh rate should ensure the best entertainment in the home with the new Apple TV 4K.
Apple today announced the next generation of Apple TV 4K. This provides, for example, HDR with a high refresh rate and Dolby Vision. The heart of the new Apple TV 4K is the A12 Bionic chip, which enables a significant increase in graphics performance, video encoding and audio processing.
A12 Bionic chip improves the video experience
With A12 Bionic, Apple TV 4K now supports HDR (High Dynamic Range) and Dolby Vision videos with high refresh rate, which means fast motion content can be played more smoothly at 60 frames per second (fps). Apple TV also uses the iPhone’s light sensor to compare color balance to industry specifications used by filmmakers around the world. The machine uses this data to automatically adjust the video output.
The redesigned Siri Remote
The all-new Siri Remote has an innovative ClickPad that provides 5-digit control for better accuracy. There is also a touch surface again for commands by swiping quickly. The outer ring of the click pad supports an intuitive circular gesture that enables jog control.
Siri now also works in Austria, Ireland, and New Zealand, with Apple TV. The new remote control also has a power button that can be used to turn the TV on and off and another button to mute it. With Siri, customers can also control smart home accessories, and check sports or weather scores.
