MASTER Series: Meet the Masters

Sony’s MASTER Series TVs are the very best of Sony, created to exemplify the goal of faithfully conveying the creator’s intent on-screen. These TVs are engineering marvels that are meticulously designed with the latest and greatest proprietary TV technology. The MASTER Series TVs deliver the best picture quality available, no matter what you like to watch. 

Enhanced Brightness, Incredible Contrast with Precision Full Array Local Dimming & Boosting

Sony’s precision full-array local dimming and boosting technology dynamically changes the light levels in different parts of the screen based on what’s on the screen, resulting in a dramatic increase in contrast and brightness. Add in X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 12x which gives the screen 12 times the contrast range of a conventional LED-edge lit TV. By accurately balancing the light output across the screen, darker scenes get darker and brighter scenes get brighter. 

Intelligent Processing, Ultimate Realism

Simply put, Sony's brand-new proprietary 4K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate is the best processor, ever. Object-based rendering happens in real time at lightning speed to remaster and upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality. Everything on the screen is identified, analyzed, and optimized individually to adjust the overall contrast, sharpness, and color for a picture that looks nearly identical to the real thing. 

Experience a More Natural Picture with 4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution

Every object, accurately displayed. With Object-Based Super Resolution in combination with 4K X-Reality PRO, you’ll see life-like detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent dual database processing, pictures look cleaner with less on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s best 4K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate. 

See the Big Picture with 4K HDR and Dolby Vision

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. 4K Ultra HD resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color, and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. Whichever format you choose, Sony MASTER Series TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience. 

TRILUMINOS Display & 4K HDR Super Bit Mapping Deliver Smooth and Vibrant Colors

Scenes appear as they do in real life with X-Motion Clarity technology. This revolutionary, best-in-class technology from Sony refines action on the screen in real time with an incredible refresh rate for action that is brighter and clearer than ever before. 

X-Wide Angle

X-Wide Angle technology gives the Z9F vivid real-world colors from any angle while retaining more color and brightness than other LED TVs. Enjoy a great picture with incredible color from anywhere in the room. 

On-Screen Action and Motion Look Better than Ever with X-Motion Clarity Technology

The difference is clear. You’ll see life-like detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you're watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near-4K clarity while a second database cleans the picture and reduce on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate.

A Genius TV, A Smarter Home

With Android TV, simply ask, and you shall receive. Control your TV and smart home hands-free by talking directly to your TV with the Google Assistant built in. Cast your favorite apps with Chromecast built-in, or enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play, including YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Spotify, and more. With Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa. 

Meet Your Google Assistant

Sony TVs equipped with Android TV have the Google Assistant built in, making your life easier with hands-free voice search. Just start with “Hey Google” to ask it questions, control smart home devices like Nest, or access many of the apps and services you already use every day. It’s your own personal Google, always ready to help. 

Enjoy Studio Quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode

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

Optimizing Colors for Professionals

Sony's MASTER Series TVs receive high performance calibration that has never previously been possible using CalMAN software. It allows adjustments to be made with finer precision than conventional picture quality settings to meet the strict requirements of creators in the post-production stage. Colors are reproduced with maximum fidelity to the original TV signal, giving exceptional picture control for a TV. CalMAN also features an easy-to-use interface that has been well received by calibration specialists. 

Slice of Living Design with Cable Management

Unsightly wires are managed and kept out of sight inside the hidden cable panel structure for a clean, sophisticated look. The aesthetics of the new Slice of Living design not only complement your living space, but coexist perfectly with Sony’s 2018 lineup of high-performance sound bars, making your entertainment center look like a work of art.

Too Much Light Reflection
I purchased this television a month ago, and I like everything about it except for the sunlight reflection I see on the screen. I did not have this issue with my LCD Sony television that I replaced with this new one. I am not sure why this is. I do have a lot of windows in my home, since I live in sunny Florida. I sure wish there was a way of eliminating this problem, short of putting blinds on all of the windows.

If I could rate it, I"d give it a 4.5, the only thing that keeps it from being a perfect 5 is the fact that the blacks aren't as inky black as it's predecessor the incredible Z9D.
The picture quality of this tv is impressive. The HDR experience is wonderful and the tv actually has shockingly good audio. This tv was definitely underrated by many. I'm very happy with this product and look forward to the Z9G.

I replaced a 65" z9d with this tv. I think watching direct tv on a 1080 feed is just ok and not as good as z9d. The images including people on the screen seem to be a little fuzzy and not as crisp as i expected. Where this tv shines is with nexflix viewing.

I purchased this after reading many, many reviews of this and other televisions. The super particular crowd will complain about the blooming and the lack of zones and how the blacks are not "inky black."

It's true. There are less zones than on the Z9D. There is more blooming than the Z9D. The blacks aren't as "inky." Also... this TV blows away everything I've used up until this point.

Do I wish they had used the Backlight Master Drive system of the previous flagship model? Yes. But in real world terms I barely notice the blooming. The black levels are better than when you go to the theater. And the natural colors of this tv.... the upscaling capability... the brightness... the off angle viewing... the tiny input lag for gaming... the responsive Google TV interface... the voice control... the Google assistant... the eARC... the Dolby Vision support... the full bandwidth HDMI 2.0b ports... the minimal bezels... the just general awesomeness... should make anybody but the most particular among us happy.

I ruled out OLED because I game. And no matter what people tell you about it will burn in or it won't burn in... I didn't even want to bother. Also, seeing this tv side by side with the A9F, showing Best Buy's loop of night video panning across Las Vegas... I can tell you, for certain this TV does not get as black as the A9F OLED. But I can also tell you that you see more detail in those dark scenes. They are dark enough. And the pick up of detail makes up for the lack of pure, deep space darkness.

If your heart is set on the blackest of blacks... then go OLED. Otherwise, this tv makes me quite happy.

I upgraded from a 10 year old Samsung LN52650. The difference is astounding. I turned on my PS4 and was mouth agape. From the menu system. I kid you not. This TV made the menu system on my PS4 look so good I didn't even recognize it. The MENU!
