About the Sony BRAVIA XR-55A80J

OLED brings the "pop"

Sony knows the process of movie production inside and out, including filming and editing. That expertise shines through in their highly rated TV lineup. Their OLED TVs are especially well regarded, combining the nearly infinite contrast of self-illuminating pixels with Sony's impactful processing technology.

The A80J delivers rich color and incredible contrast with its sharp OLED picture and powerful processing.

OLED brings the "pop"

Sony knows the process of movie production inside and out, including filming and editing. That expertise shines through in their highly rated TV lineup. Their OLED TVs are especially well regarded, combining the nearly infinite contrast of self-illuminating pixels with Sony's impactful processing technology.

The XR-55A80J carries on that tradition with a jaw-dropping picture that really pops with organic color and fine detail. Each pixel can turn off entirely to produce absolute black and detailed contrast that has to be seen to be believed.

Powerful "cognitive" processing

Sony is famous for their powerful processing, and they've just raised the bar again. The Cognitive Processor XR™ harnesses the power of machine learning and marries it with a human perspective to create a truly immersive experience. Sounds like the opening to a sci-fi novel, I know, but hear me out.

A wide range of elements (contrast, color, texture, etc.) are cross-analyzed in each frame to detect and enhance key focal points. The number of specific details being adjusted can rise into the hundreds of thousands. Because these focal points are based on how we actually see the world, the image feels deeper and more lifelike.

Long story short, Sony's new cognitive processing technology produces a sharp, hyper-detailed image that's about as true-to-life as a TV can get.

Realistic, vibrant color

The TV's XR TRILUMINOS PRO™ display technology further enriches your experience by providing a wider palette of vivid colors. The additional subtlety in color variation helps the picture look authentic and natural.

Enhanced by HDR

The A80J also supports the Dolby Vision® HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. This system adjusts brightness and color levels scene by scene for enhanced contrast and detail with Dolby Vision encoded programs, many of which are available through popular streaming services.

Impressive 3D TV sound

Sony's cognitive processing isn't just for the picture — it's used to enhance the audio as well. Here it works together with the A80J's innovative design, where the screen itself becomes a speaker. This allows sound to be projected vertically and to the sides, and positioned where the source of a sound appears on-screen. That means you'll get pretty immersive sound, even without additional audio gear. The TV even "upscales" incoming audio signal to make sure you're always getting 3D sound, regardless of your source.

Stream with Google TV

The TV's built-in Google TV smart app platform puts a wide range of streaming services at your fingertips, from Netflix® to Disney+, and consolidates their search results into a single user interface. This saves you a ton of time by letting you search for content through multiple services at once. If you're looking for Interstellar, Google TV will quickly point you in the right direction. No need to individually search through each service you're signed up for.

You also get custom recommendations. After watching Matthew McConaughey launch into space in an effort to save humankind, you can watch him play the cynical yet compelling Rust Cohle in season one of True Detective — on a completely different service.

Next-gen gaming ready

The A80J has two HDMI 2.1 inputs, a key feature for next-gen game console adopters. To take full advantage of the graphical prowess of a PS5 or Xbox Series X, you'll need those inputs to hit 4K at a crisp 120 Hz. The TV will also support Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM) with a future firmware update. These will keep the action on-screen nice and smooth by nixing pesky frame tearing and stuttering.
