X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro
Enjoy a beautiful night view, full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks. With up to five times the contrast of conventional LED TVs, dark scenes are darker and bright scenes are brighter.
4K HDR Processor X1
Like you're under the wave, waiting for the water to break over you, the 4K HDR Processor X1 reproduces every sparkling pattern and texture for incredible realism.
4K High Dynamic Range
For the ultimate in picture quality, this TV pairs the brilliance of 4K clarity with the brightness, color, and detail of High Dynamic Range (HDR). Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail.
See vivid real-world colors all around you. A TRILUMINOS Display maps colors from a wider palette, faithfully reproducing every shade and hue in the umbrellas.
Dynamic Backlight Control helps improve energy efficiency by adjusting backlight brightness as picture content changes. Power Saving Mode helps save energy by adjusting backlight brightness. Backlight Off Mode helps save energy by turning picture off, which is realized by both display off on LCD panel and backlight off.
Narrow Aluminum Frame
The narrow aluminum frame helps the TV look slim and attractive, while focusing the eye on the screen for maximum entertainment.
Keep wires out of sight. All of your cables can be neatly arranged across the back of the TV and channeled into the stand, so everything looks tidy.
Hide all your cables from set-top boxes or Blu-ray players within the unique stand.
Motionflow XR Keeps Action Smooth
Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of mission action in the sequences.
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimizing its color banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of color of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more color levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets, and other areas of subtle color gradation.
Object-Based HDR Remaster
By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, object-based HDR remaster optimizes and enhances color and contrast. It brings everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements brighter, and everything in between is more accurately lit, for realism in every scene never-before-possible on Sony TVs.
The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show, or video you’re looking for. Call up the content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, videos on demand, downloaded TV shows, and much more. You can even customize the content bar to show you the content you go to most often first.
BRAVIA is Chromecast built-in ready so you can easily cast your favorite entertainment, like YouTube or Netflix, from your personal device on to the stunning BRAVIA screen. You can cast from Android, iOS, or your laptop.
Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry. You can also get recommendations; asking for "romantic comedies," for example, brings up a list of suitable options.
Made to Listen: ClearAudio+
Make your listening as life-like as your viewing. ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialog, and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
DSEE Restores Detail
Low-resolution Internet video, catch-up TV, and other heavily compressed audio files don’t always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components (especially high frequencies) are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.
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.
Cinematic S-Force Front Surround
Enjoy an immersive soundstage that pulls you into the heart of the action. S-Force Front Surround mimics the way the brain correlates sound sources to create proper volume, time lag, and sound wave spectrum — using only left and right speaker channels. By naturally emulating three-dimensional sound fields, you’ll enjoy rich, high-fidelity audio across a wider listening area.
Based on radio waves, Bluetooth technology allows you to make a quick, short-range wireless connection that won’t be interrupted by objects in the signal path. Once paired, you're free to stream all of your favorite content—including movies, pictures, and music—from your smartphone or tablet to your TV.
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.
TV SideView App
Find, record, and talk about your favorite TV shows using the TV SideView app. Use your tablet or smartphone (Android or iOS) to see the latest TV schedule as well as view the most popular programs currently trending. Once you’ve found what you want to watch, you can set an alarm so you never miss the shows you love. Live tweet your reactions and see what other viewers are saying.
The Infra-red (IR) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your set-top box (cable box) with the TV remote controller.
