TV Picture engine (X Reality Pro, Tripe XD, Hyper Real, 4K Fine Remaster)

This is a very competitive market today. There is not much to distinguish between the various brands of best TVs available in the market. Each of the brands is unique in its individual way. Each brand is vying for excellence.

There is a constant competition going on between each individual brand to outperform the others. This is where the picture engine concept comes into play.

Now, you know higher the resolution of the images, better is the performance of the TV. What role does the picture engine play in this regard?

In order to determine this role, you should have a clear understanding of the concept of the picture engine. At the same time, we shall also look at the different types of pictures engines patronized by each of the top TV brands.

What is the concept of the picture engine?

In very simple terms, a picture engine is an image processing engine, also known as media processor. You find this digital signal processor in digital cameras, mobile phones, TVs and other similar devices. The principal objective of the picture engines is to increase the pixel count thereby ensuring crisper and clearer pictures.

Different types of picture engines:

The role of the picture engine does not change at all. It does not matter whether the TV brand is a Sony or LG. The basic function of the picture engine is the same. But, you can notice some minor adjustments made by each TV manufacturer. This enables them to claim that they are the better brand in comparison. In reality, there is not much to distinguish between each brand.

X Reality Pro Engine: This is a Sony product. Capable of scaling up each pixel intelligently, this X Reality Pro picture engine ensures unmatched clarity. This picture engine adds important details to the images like lustre, vibrancy, texture, and missing colours.

Triple XD Engine: LG has introduced this engine that works on three important parameters. The parameters in question are colour, contrast, and noise. This engine enhances picture quality by increasing the brightness, black levels and alters the colour tones. In addition, this engine has analogue and MPEG noise reduction algorithms.

HyperReal Engine: When you have LG and Sony with their individual picture engines, can you discount Samsung? The HyperReal Engine is a Samsung product providing high-quality pictures having amazing depths coupled with bewitching colours. Governing colours, contrast, and motion to the highest levels of efficiency is easy.

4K Fine Remaster Engine: Many countries have 4K TVs as well as 4K broadcasting sources. This is not the case in India. You have these 4K TVs, but do not have actual 4K content to watch them. This calls for scaling up the content every time. When you do so, it can result in a grainy output that can look blurred. This is a serious issue. Panasonic has come up with their 4K Fine Remaster Engine to overcome this problem.


You have thus seen the concept of picture engines. They play a great role in enhancing the quality of the images displayed on the TV. We reiterate that there is not much to choose between each of the four engines discussed above. Each of them is effective in its individual way.
