Master Series: The Sony Master Series is the name given to only the highest-grade
televisions equipped with the best of Sony technology. The Master Series was
created to provide the image quality approaching that of a professional-grade
monitor in a motion picture production studio. Sony's objective was to create a
television capable of images that faithfully convey the content creators' full
intent. For over fifty years, Sony has been pushing the limits
of TV picture quality. Now Sony's expertise in Mastering content creation with
filmmakers and perfecting screens that replicate the creator's intent has come
together in their new Master Series TVs. Master Series TVs meet the strict
criteria of Sony's top engineers and faithfully convey the creator's intent,
making beautiful images a reality. Master Series aims for TV picture quality
with the brightness to illuminate every detail, darkness deep enough to engulf
viewers, and colors beautiful enough to captivate the audience. The Master
Series is precisely calibrated at the factory for white balance and uniformity
to meet the needs of professional creators and ensure consistently high
Picture Processor X1 Ultimate: Moving from film to TV requires
content to be digitally compressed, which affects picture quality. What the
creator sees during shooting is encoded before transmission to the television,
then decoded and converted so it can be displayed on the panel. In developing
Master Series TVs, Sony wanted to recapture the creator's perfectly finished
image as a digital signal while minimizing deterioration. Sony's Picture
Processor X1 Ultimate minimizes image deterioration during this process
utilizing the following technologies. While developing Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, Sony followed a 'not one bit
lost' philosophy. Signals are processed at ultra-high bit rates, then restored
to their original quality. High-precision components in the signal processor help preserve detail across
the whole image for TV ultimate realism and visual expression. With
unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate detects hundreds
of different objects on-screen and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and
color so everything you watch is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.
- Object-Base Super Resolution: Object-based Super
Resolution technology detects individual objects in a picture and preserve
detail on-screen. Hundreds of objects are identified and their resolution
individually enhanced to give a picture of exceptional accuracy and detail.
- 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 64x more color levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of
faces, sunsets, and other areas of subtle color. It creates smooth, natural
4K TV picture quality as you watch, without the "banding" that can occur on
- Precision Color Mapping: Precision Color Mapping
independently analyzes every scene and pixel so the perfect shade and tone
are applied dynamically for rich, natural colors. It enhances and optimizes
colors individually and finely in real time. It controls every color
perfectly for rich and natural results.
- Object-Based HDR ReMaster: With Object-based HDR
reMaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the
contrast adjusted; unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one
black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are reMastered individually,
this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.
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 our TVs. You'll see contours
on mountains, hidden textures on flowers, depth in clouds, and wildlife has
the contrast and color of nature, for a more natural and realistic picture
- Dynamic Contrast Enhancer: The Dynamic Contrast
Enhancer optimizes the range of brightness frame-by-frame according to
what's happening on screen to reproduce deeper blacks, brighter whites, and
more video color.
X-Tended Dynamic Range Pro (12x): X-tended Dynamic Range PRO
lets you enjoy beautiful night shots, full of dazzling lights and deeper blacks.
With up to 12x the contrast of conventional LED-LCD TVs, this 4K HDR TV with
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO ensures dark scenes are darker and bright scenes
brighter. By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming
some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness
range 12x that of a conventional LED-LCD TV. It enhances any source to near HDR
quality with a wider range of brightness.
Ultra 4K Resolution: 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). With 4K UHD, you'll see more on TV than ever before
with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2
million (1,920 x 1,080) on a1080p HDTV. Its detail is so vivid and crisp,
even when viewed from close distances; it's nearly impossible to discern a
single pixel, even from inches away. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content
delivers exceptional detail, color and contrast, with a far wider range of
brightness than other video formats. The result is the most lifelike picture TVs
have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.
HDR (High Dynamic Range): High Dynamic Range (HDR)
enhances the dynamic range of a picture, increasing the contrast between the
brightest whites and darkest blacks. Every pixel is made more accurate,
regardless of resolution, bringing scenes to life with greater detail. HDR's
greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels brings greater
contrast & wider color spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast
reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to
the brightest whites and colors, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas
of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. Movies and
TV shows in HDR are closer to the original recording and the director's
vision with more brightness, contrast and color, for a truly lifelike
- HDR 10: HDR 10 is an open standard and currently
the most popular HDR format on the market. It supports 10-bit color and
1,000 nits. It uses static metadata at the start of a movie to tell the
receiver and your TV that the video content is encoded using HDR.
- HLG: HLG (Hybrid-Log Gamma) is primarily designed
for live video feed and over-the-air broadcasts. It uses no pre-encoded
metadata and is backwards compatible with SDR. HLG's native
compatibility allows much of today's existing SDR infrastructure to be
re-used for HDR in the future.
- Dolby Vision (Firmware Update Available): Unlike HDR 10 which contains static metadata
and HLG which uses not metadata, Dolby Vision adjusts brightness, color,
and contrast automatically for each scene. Dynamic metadata carries
information that maps every image to your TV's display capabilities, so
you see more of what the content creator intended.
Note: Please use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18
Gbps and above to view HDR content.
4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler w/ Dual Database Processing: Sony's 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler
w/ Dual Database Processing enhances Ultra-HD, HD, and SD images by analyzing
and refining images with beautifully natural detail and clarity. One database is
used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to
upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement
databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each
database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience
creating content for TV and movies over the years. With 4K X-Reality PRO and
Dual Database Processing, every image is upscaled closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity. This 4K television upscales
your favorite TV shows, DVD and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand content,
and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD.
- Noise Reduction Database: Compressed noise is identified by the
database, which includes "before and after" data on what a picture should
look like and removes the compressed picture noise
- Upscaling Database: The upscaling database also includes "before
and after" data, which is used to upscale the signal and create a more
TRILUMINOS Display: Unique to Sony, a TRILUMINOS Display
with its specially developed backlight selectively maps colors across a wider
gamut, ensuring subtle colors do not become oversaturated and unnatural. You'll
enjoy vivid, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. TRILUMINOS Display
uses a wider color spectrum than a
conventional flat-panel TV display. A TRILUMINOS Display excels at reproducing reds,
greens, and blues; colors that are notoriously difficult for TVs to display
accurately. It also displays skin tones beautifully, thanks to its extensive
color palette and precise gradation.
X-Wide Angle: With Sony's Master Series, you can bring the whole
family together to enjoy TV and they'll all have a great view of the action from
any seat in the room. Sony's X-Wide Angle
panel ensures colors stay true from wherever you're watching; you'll see
pictures that are bright and clear from any angle. Now, watching TV from the
sides is as satisfying as from the center. The TV's screen is also edged with a
slim, narrow, 4-sided frame that maximizes the viewing area. In addition, the
TV's "easel" design lets you focus on the screen with no distraction of a
Motionflow XR w/ X-Motion Clarity: Motion flow XR w/
X-Motion Clarity technology keeps fast action smooth and clear. Moving images
are precisely controlled to minimize blur. Even during high speed scenes,
pictures stay true with no loss in brightness. 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 missing
action in the sequences. Enjoy smooth and sharp details, even in fast-moving
Video Inputs: The Sony Master Series UHD TV is equipped with HDMI
2.1 and 3.5mm video inputs.

- 4:4:4 Color Subsampling: All four HDMI inputs will
support up to 4:4:4 chroma subsampling for full color data rendering of
4K video (30/60fps). 4:2:2 (30/60fps) and 4:2:0 (60fps) are also
supported by all HDMI inputs. With 4:4:4 color, luminance (brightness)
and chroma (color) are sampled at the same rate, resulting in an RGB
color palette as big as the video sampling rate for a video image with
more total colors, plus greater color accuracy and detail.
- 3.5mm AV Input: In addition to HDMI connectivity, there
is also a 3.5mm AV input for connection of an analog audio/video component.
There are no standard composite or component video inputs.
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and
Clear QAM tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a
separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or
unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

Sony Sound Technologies: The Sony Master Series UHD TV utilizes a variety of
proprietary Sony technologies to enhance and optimize sound quality.
- S-Force Front Surround: 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.
- ClearAudio+: 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
- Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE): Low-resolution
Internet video 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.
- Clear Phase: Sony 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.
Other Audio Settings: The Sony Master Series UHD TV also features several
audio settings to help tailor the sound to your preference, application, and

volume level of the current input relative to other inputs. The Advanced Auto
Volume function keeps the volume level constant across all programs and
eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel): The Enhanced Audio Return Channel within
the television's HDMI 3 input enables the TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send
audio data "upstream" to an AV receiver; increasing user flexibility and
eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature
allows audio to be sent from the television to your AV receiver through the
same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This
eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. eARC allows audio from
the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any
analog connected device to be heard through your eARC compatible AV receiver via
the television's HDMI eARC input.
- The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, USB ports, and Android TV
apps can pass as Dolby Digital, DTS, Dolby Digital Plus, Dolby TrueHD, Dolby Atmos, DTS:X,
and DTS HD Master Audio; as well as 2ch, 5.1ch, and 7.1ch PCM
- Analog connected & DLNA compliant devices will be output audio at 2ch
Note: Your AV receiver or soundbar will also have to
support eARC (Enhanced Audio Return Channel) to accommodate the playback of
these high resolution audio formats. If your AV receiver or soundbar only
supports ARC (Audio Return Channel), audio playback will be limited to Dolby
Digital, Dolby Digital Plus, DTS, and 5.1ch/2ch PCM.
