Bring out the beauty of OLED with the powerful Picture Processor X1 Ultimate

With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate analyzes content to bring out OLED’s intense contrast with pure blacks, peak brightness and natural colors. Object-based HDR remastering happens in real-time to detect hundreds of individual objects on-screen and intelligently upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality so everything you watch is clear, bright, and incredibly realistic.

The best picture quality with Sony’s MASTER Series TVs

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

Boosting OLED color and contrast for extra depth and realism

Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate and supercharged via the Pixel Contrast Booster to enhance color and contrast 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.

Acoustic Surface Audio

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, sound comes to you from the entire screen, creating an immersive multi-dimensional audio experience. It’s picture and sound in perfect harmony. With a subwoofer integrated into the rear of the TV, you’ll hear more dynamic, bass-heavy sound – ideal for action movies and music.

Watch what you love, control it with your voice

Sony’s Android TV with Google Assistant makes it easier to get more from your TV. Press the Google Assistant button on your remote to quickly search 500,000+ movies and shows, get recommendations to match your mood, control smart home devices, and more. Cast photos, videos, and music from smart devices to your TV with Chromecast built-in and get all the top apps and games on Google Play, like YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, Spotify, and more.

Supreme resolution, whatever you're watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique 4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution. Our Picture Processor X1 Ultimate precisely analyses and processes data to enrich pictures with lifelike detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent dual database processing, content looks cleaner with less on-screen noise. Even images filmed in Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality PRO. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s Picture Processor X1 Ultimate.

TRILUMINOS Display, bringing you all the world’s colors

By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS Display, powered by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, 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. See exactly what the creator intended with the advanced color, light, and gradation of the TRILUMINOS Display.

Bright and clear motion

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.

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. An embedded light sensor optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view. For uncompromised sound, Acoustic Auto Calibration analyzes the rooms environment and reproduces sound that's enhanced and optimized to your room.v

Works with Apple AirPlay 2

With Apple AirPlay 2, you can stream video and audio to your television right from your iPhone, iPad or Mac. Watch movies and shows from your favorite apps and the Apple TV app, or even Safari. Share your photos with everyone in the room.

Well-connected to your smart home

With Google Nest Devices and Amazon Alexa compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Nest or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa. Apple HomeKit support seamlessly integrates your Apple devices with your Sony TV for effortless smart home management.

See the big picture with HDR, Dolby Visions, IMAX Enhanced and Netflix Calibrated Mode

High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. Ultra-high 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. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colors. The IMAX Enhanced program brings the immersive entertainment experience into the home. IMAX Enhanced content is digitally remastered to provide sharper images and more powerful sound—just as the creator intended. Netflix Calibrated Mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix original content and reproduce picture quality as brilliant as the studio evaluation monitor, faithfully reproducing the creator's intent and vision. Whichever format, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience.

Incredibly thin one-slate design

With our super-slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, blending harmoniously in any room environment. The flush surface with narrow aluminum bezel keeps you focused on the picture, not the television. Integrated cable management keeps wires neatly hidden so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from any angle.

Mount your Sony TV like a work of art

Make the most of your living space. The SU-WL855 ultra slim wall-mount bracket is designed to hang select Sony BRAVIA OLED and LED TVs flush to the wall, just like any other work of art. Pull out your TV and swivel it left to right to adjust the screen angle for optimal viewing.

Experience content as the director envisioned

When pictures are digitally compressed from film to TV, quality is compromised and your experience is not as the director intended in the studio. A wide range of unique features lets you enjoy studio-quality entertainment in your own home, just as the director envisioned.

High performance calibration for professionals

Our 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.

Lovely TV
Looks beautiful in the Living Room. Couldn't understand the setup instructions on the cable box. It says 'Pint your TV remote at your cable/satellite box and select the button below PROG UP' but there is no PROG UP button! Also disappointed that Britbox was no available in the App store.

I absolutely Love this tv, the picture is amazing, and the sound that comes through the screen is perfect, I see no need for a sound bar, This is not my home theatre tv but more of a News tv, and you tube stuff. Excellent quality and features

This TV was well worth waiting for - have been looking for a 48" OLED for a while and held off on the LG due mostly to the OS since primarily watch via streaming services which it is super easy to access through Android OS. TV is fast and quality is top of the line - picture is fantastic and while many might get a sound bar, I don't have one based on where I've set this up and the audio tech built in makes for a great experience / I don't feel I am missing anything. Everything about using this TV has been an awesome experience.

Great TV.
Nice picture but the sound is just as bad as my much less expensive Sony TV But honestly, I don't know why I bought a Sony. The old one barely lasted 4.7 years. Too expensive to fix.

Excellent quality. I was lucky to be able to get one late 2010 as it was scarce at the stores. Picture quality is beyond any I have seen. I am happy with the connectivity and ease of setup. Sound quality is good but I have the TV hooked up to my surround sound system for an even better surround sound.

LAN 100Mbps. No support for DV and TrueHD internally
LAN port is only 100Mbps and not capable of streaming HDR10 content. You have to use WiFi for that, but internal software does not support playback for Dolby Vision and TrueHD sound. Dolby Vision and TrueHD supported only from HDMI ports, so you have to use external players, or boxes, such as nVidia Shield. Even when using external players, Dolby Vision playback is not stable and sometimes is not activated from the first try. You need to start playback several times in order for the TV to switch to Dolby Vision (HDMI cable is 48Gbps). Looks like there will be no more or ever Firmware upgrades for this TV, because it is already running at least 2-year-old software and has only May 2020 security patch for Android. Picture quality is excellent, but it has outdated guts. Very disappointed.
