Sony keeps refining their OLED TVs

Combine 4K OLED display technology with Sony's unmatched video processing and you get one of 2019's finest TV pictures. In fact, the 55" XBR-55A8G delivers immersive picture and sound.

4K and HDR complete the picture

4K provides four times the picture detail of 1080p HD, while HDR (High Dynamic Range) gives a major boost to contrast and color. It may surprise you, but HD video standards are based on old-school tube TVs with low brightness capabilities.

The latest HDR-equipped TVs, like the XBR-55A8G, can display greater contrast and a wider color spectrum. The combination makes pictures pop like you've never seen before.

Sony's video processing makes everything look its best

Sony isn't the only company building OLED TVs, but it's the only one that employs the company's unmatched video processing. The 4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme engine is one of their most sophisticated processors. Its two primary tasks are reducing the compression noise common in streamed video and lower-resolution sources, and upscaling every source to near 4K/HDR quality. Picture quality with 4K streamed content and Ultra HD Blu-ray is spectacular, but you don't need a 4K source to be wowed by this TV.

The X1 Extreme processor also detects if there is a static image on screen and performs a pixel shift to avoid burn-in or image retention.

The entire screen is a speaker — sound tracks the on-screen action

Instead of using typical tiny speakers, the XBR-55A8G uses the entire screen to generate sound. Sony's Acoustic Surface™ technology uses actuators on the back to send vibrations through the screen to produce sound. Sounds are localized to what's happening on screen, creating an even more immersive experience. A total of 50 watts of power drives the screen speaker system as well as the rear-mounted woofer.

Tell this TV what you want to watch

The XBR-55A8G's built-in Android operating system lets you easily log in to your Google ID to access a huge collection of apps, games and content from Google Play. Use the Chromecast Built-in feature to stream movies, pictures, and TV shows from your iOS or Android-based phone, or from a laptop.

The included remote control lets you activate the built-in Google Assistant simply by pressing the mic button and speaking into the microphone. Use it to adjust the volume, change channels or inputs, and control other basic TV functions. Search for a particular movie or actor just by saying the name. Google Assistant can also answer everyday questions and control connected smart home devices. The XBR-55A8G is also compatible with Amazon Alexa voice control assistants.
