Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colours

By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Supreme resolution, whatever you’re watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique features. Our X1™ Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1™ Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to enrich 4K pictures with real-world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.

Boosting colour and contrast for extra depth and realism

See real-world colours, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, colour and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver. 

Beautiful colours from any angle

Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the centre. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colours consistent and true, wherever you’re watching.

Making fast-moving scenes bright and clear

With pictures created by millions of individually controlled pixels, everything is sharp and clear on OLED. And with our X-Motion Clarity™ technology, even fast action stays smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimize blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high-speed scenes.

Super Bit Mapping HDR

There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping HDR reveals them. It creates smooth, natural 4K TV picture quality as you watch, without the “banding” that can occur on other TVs.

Dual database processing

One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.

Incredibly immersive sound from the screen

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator behind the screen vibrates discreetly to create sound, so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening—dialogue from characters, engine noise from a car. 

Enjoy multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround

Hear sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi surround speaker system within your TV so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound.

Clearly hear voices

With Voice Zoom, you can hear human speech clearly without having to turn up the volume—ideal for news bulletins and documentaries.

Power your soundtracks

With a subwoofer integrated into the rear of the TV, you’ll hear more dynamic, bass-heavy sound—ideal for action movies and music.

Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment

Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony’s unique ambient optimization technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.

Narrow metal bezel

Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television. 

Aluminum Central Stand

Beautifully designed to match your living room.

Cable clutter minimized

Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from the front, the sides and the back. 

Say what you want to watch

Find your favourite content faster than ever using the power of your voice. With Voice Search, there’s no more complicated navigation or tiresome typing—you just have to ask.

Over 5,000 apps, more than any other smart TV

Sony’s Android Smart TV has an unbeatable number of apps. Choose the ones that make your life more fun and entertaining. 

No more waiting

Apps start fast and there’s no more waiting when you switch between apps—Netflix starts 3x faster than before.

Our Android TVs are recommended by Netflix

Netflix have created an easy way for you to identify TVs with better performance, easier app access and new features that make for a better smart TV. Netflix-recommended TVs help you enjoy popular shows and movies with a dedicated button and voice control.

Control your TV and smart devices with your voice

With the Google Assistant, you can ask your TV to connect and communicate with your smart devices, including security cameras and appliances. It’s truly effortless and offers the ultimate experience.

Connect with Your Alexa

Connect your Alexa-enabled devices for seamless hands-free control of a Sony TV. With Alexa, you can power up your TV, change channels, control volume and more.

Works with Google Home

Connect Google Home for seamless hands-free control of a Sony TV. With Google Home, you can find and cast your favourite videos to your Sony TV, without lifting a finger.

Works with Apple AirPlay / Apple HomeKit

With Apple AirPlay, you can stream video and audio to your television right from your iPhone, iPad or Mac. Watch movies and shows from iTunes, your favourite apps or even Safari. Share your photos with everyone in the room.

Send to a bigger, better screen with Chromecast

Chromecast lets you cast your favourite videos, games and apps from your mobile device, in full quality, to your TV. Just one tap of the Cast button on your Android or iOS screen is all you need to supersize the things you love. Cast your content then continue browsing on your phone or tablet.

Beautifully designed

Our premium-design remote in brushed aluminum with hairline finish feels good in the hand and harmonizes with your living room. Control your TV even if there are objects in the way with Bluetooth connectivity and use a variety of simple one-push buttons to easily manage key functions.

Easy control with smart remote

Clear Phase for smooth, balanced frequencies

BRAVIA® uses a powerful computer model to analyse and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response. It does this by 'sampling' the speaker frequency with higher precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response—resulting in pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.

Bluetooth connectivity

Connect BLUETOOTH® compatible devices to your TV for easy wire free entertainment. Pair your Bluetooth headphones or earphones with BRAVIA and enjoy TV shows and music in your favourite place—without any disturbances or interruptions.

Enjoy studio quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode

This mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals and reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master. With Netflix Calibrated Mode, the creator’s vision and intent is faithfully preserved.

Embrace the thrills of the cinema

Enjoy cinematic thrills at home. Dolby Vision™ brings scenes vividly to life for authentic viewing, while Dolby Atmos™ fills the room with immersive surround sound.

Preserving the passion of the creators

To address colour variations from the production process, this TV is ready to use Portrait Displays’ high-performance Calman auto-calibration software. This allows an unprecedented level of calibration, and the ability to fine-tune adjustments simply not possible through conventional picture settings. It delivers high-fidelity colour reproduction that’s true to the original TV signal, and can even adapt to the subtlest changes in colour that may occur over time. This TV is Calman Ready, allowing customers to benefit from software used by visual creators in post-production quality-control workflows, further demonstrating our commitment to deliver pictures with professional-grade-colour-calibrated accuracy in the home.

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.
