Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colors

By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors 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 color and contrast for extra depth and realism

See real-world colors, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, color 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 colors from any angle

Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colors 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.

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed 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.

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.

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.

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.

One slate design concept

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

Narrow metal bezel 

Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television. 

Flexible metal blade stand, soundbar-ready

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

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 favorite 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.

Just talk, a fun way to explore new worlds

Control your TV and smart devices with your voice

You can ask your TV with the Google Assistant 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 favorite 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 the Apple TV app, your favorite 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 favorite 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.

Easy control with smart remote

Connect set top boxes and other devices via HDMI to your TV and control them all using one smart commander. A slimmer, more rounded design with built-in voice control microphone and enhanced button layout makes it really easy to use, too.

A smarter way to enjoy your smartphone

Google Play™: a world of content and apps

Discover movies and TV shows, games, and much more from Google Play™. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of apps on your TV in a brand new way.

Clear Phase for smooth, balanced frequencies

BRAVIA® uses a powerful computer model to analyze 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 wireless entertainment. Pair your Bluetooth headphones or earphones with BRAVIA and enjoy TV shows and music in your favorite 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.

IMAX Enhanced

This Sony 4K Smart TV is an IMAX Enhanced product, ready to meet high-quality color, contrast, clarity, and sound. Take comfort in knowing you'll be enjoying a fully immersive at-home entertainment experience on this TV that takes full advantage of IMAX Enhanced content.

Embrace the thrills of the theater

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 color variations from the production process, this TV Series 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 color reproduction that's true to the original TV signal and can even adapt to the subtlest changes in color that may occur over time. The MASTER Series 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 color-calibrated accuracy in the home.
