What is Motionflow XR and X-Motion Clarity?

    What is Motionflow XR?

    The human eye can see a slight ‘judder’ as it perceives small differences in position between successive TV frames.

    This judder or movement is most noticeable when on-screen objects are moving rapidly, and there is a significant difference between the image's position in each frame. By increasing the number of images seen every second, the TV produces a smoother, more natural TV picture.

    The native panel frequency (also called the refresh rate) refers to how many images a panel can display in one second (Hz). Motionflow XR combines native panel frequency with other techniques, so pictures become smoother and more natural:

    • Frame insertion, which creates new motion-compensated frames that are inserted between the original TV frames
    • LED Backlight control, for controlling the panel’s LED backlighting to make images sharper
    • Image Blur Reduction, to compensate for blurred images, cleaning up the subject so that it appears clearer

    Motionflow XR can go up to 1200 Hz depending on the TV model. To check the specific range for your TV, please go to Specifications located on your TV's product page.

    You can adapt Motionflow by going to the [Picture] settings menu.


    What is X-Motion Clarity?

    As screen sizes increase, managing fast-moving scenes becomes a key factor in providing a smooth and life-like picture. In the past, fast-moving scenes seemed blurry because of an inevitable drop in brightness. Then we introduced X-Motion Clarity, an evolution of Motionflow XR.

    X-Motion Clarity technology keeps everything smooth, bright and clear. Each ‘blink’ is individually controlled, and its duration optimised, while brightness is boosted when needed. The result is a smooth and realistic action-packed image. X-Motion Clarity technology controls the illuminance and maximises its duration. Therefore, pictures are clear and smooth with virtually no loss in brightness.
