Product Fiche
  • 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 analyses 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 analyses and processes data to enrich 4K2 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 optimised 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.

    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.

    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 minimise blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high speed scenes.

    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.

    Sound from the screen, incredibly immersive

    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 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 – rather than from speakers at the sides.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment

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

    Narrow metal bezel

    Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television.

    One slate design concept

    Our slim and simple one slate design keeps you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously in any room environment.

    Flexible Metal Blade Stand, sound bar ready

    The direction of this versatile stand can be adjusted so your TV display won't disturb your viewing, even when used with a sound bar.

    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.

    Cable clutter minimised

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

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.
