4K HDR: 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). 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.
- Ultra 4K Resolution: 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 your 1080p HDTV. Advanced picture processing also
ensures that every single pixel displays images with superb brightness and
authentic detail. It's the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced
on a TV.
- HDR (High Dynamic Range): HDR (High Dynamic Range)
reproduces a greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels,
bringing 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. The Sony TV supports three HDR formats - including HDR10 which
is the most widely used format and is installed from the factory, HLG
(Hybrid-Log Gamma) which is designed for over-the-air broadcast and requires
a firmware update that is currently available, and Dolby Vision which is a
dynamic HDR format that requires a firmware update that is currently
- 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: 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: Dolby Vision compatibility is currently only
available through the TV's network streaming apps (such as Netflix, Amazon,
etc.). An additional firmware update (no ETA) is required for Dolby Vision
compatibility through the TV's HDMI inputs.
4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler: Sony's 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler enhances Ultra-HD, HD, and SD images by analyzing and refining images
with beautifully natural detail and astounding color. This 4K television
upscales your favorite TV shows, DVD and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand
content, and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD quality. This unique 4K X-Reality PRO
picture processing technology upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity.
Advanced noise reduction techniques and a special pattern database ensure every
scene is full of lifelike detail. One database is used to clean the picture,
reducing on-screen noise; the other is used to upscale the resolution, improving
clarity; while another database improves color, brightness, and contrast. These
three powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving
pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed
from Sony's experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.
- Upscaling Database: Unique to Sony, 4K X-Reality PRO picture
processing upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity. Pixels across
multiple frames are analyzed and images sharpened and refined in real time.
You will immediately see the detail appear in faces and skin tones.
- Pattern Database: With 4K X-Reality PRO, patterns in images are
compared with patterns stored in a unique database to find the best hue,
saturation, and brightness for each pixel. Sony uses the knowledge gained
from developing and filming blockbuster movies and TV shows to deliver
supremely lifelike detail in everything you watch.
- 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. A variety of noise
reduction techniques are then used by 4K X-Reality PRO to sharpen and refine
images. You'll immediately see how scenes become clearer, smoother, and more
4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme: The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme with
Object-based HDR remaster and Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR technology gives pure
colors at higher brightness levels for truly natural pictures. Made to enhance
the latest generation of 4K HDR pictures, the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme brings
reality to every scene. With 40% more real-time image processing than our
renowned 4K Processor X1, it delivers unprecedented picture quality for
everything you watch, upscaling content from any source nearer to 4K.
- 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.
- Object-Based HDR Remaster: 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 on screen.
Slim Backlight Drive+: Sony's innovative Slim Backlight
Drive+ with double-edge LED panel directs light where it's needed, boosting
dimming precision for higher peak brightness, contrast, and realism. It delivers
astounding image quality from an incredibly slim design. The Slim Backlight
Drive+ has two layers of light guide plates, allowing precise local dimming
control to improve overall contrast. As a result, you get intense bright whites,
deep rich blacks, plus vibrant color and detail.
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO 10x: With extraordinary precision in backlight
control, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO makes darker areas darker and brighter
scenes brighter, revitalizing every scene with the widest range of brightness
possible. This unique backlighting algorithm faithfully reproduces a far
wider brightness range than a conventional LED-LCD TV with brighter peaks and
deeper, more revealing shadow detail and blacks. By precisely balancing the
light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended
Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness range 10x greater than a conventional LED-LCD
TV. When combined with a 4K HDR signal, you'll experience even greater
brilliance in every scene as it increases the quality of HDR with more vibrant
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. The more
pencils you have to draw an image, the more vibrant and lifelike it becomes.
TRILUMINOS Display works in the same way, using a wider color spectrum than a
conventional LED-LCD 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.
MotionFlow XR 960 Technology: Enjoy smooth and sharp details
even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR 960. Sony's MotionFlow XR 960
technology feature a precise backlight control that is synchronized with the
liquid crystal movement from frame-to-frame creating clearer, sharper moving
images. MotionFlow XR 960 combines 120 frames-per-second with the TV's advanced
LED backlight system to simulate a 960 Hz effect. This innovative technology
creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones and then compares key
visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing
action in the sequences. MotionFlow XR 960 provides smooth and precise detail
during fast-action scenes for fast action movies and sports by reducing blur
caused by quick camera movements, enhancing image sharpness, and overall
creating a clearer picture. You can select between various settings - Standard,
Smooth, Clear, True Cinema (24fps), and Custom.

input can be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI inputs will accept
4K, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. HDMI inputs 2 & 3 will do 4K
(60Hz), while HDMI inputs 1 & 4 will only support 4K (30/24Hz)
- HDCP 2.2: HDCP 2.2 is supported by all of the TV's
HDMI inputs. HDCP 2.2 is short for "High bandwidth Digital Content
Protection" and is used for 4K video copyright protection for
compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable
- 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.
- Component/Composite: There is one combination analog
video input that can be used as a component or composite video input; it
shares a single stereo RCA audio input. As a component video input, it will
accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. As a composite

setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast
distinction for the darker picture scenes.
Live Color Technology: Powered by an image processor using an
algorithm specially developed by Sony, Live Color is able to reproduce
incredibly vivid colors on screen. With four user-adjustable settings available
you can choose just how vivid you want your images to be. Whether it's a
brilliant blue sky or a bright red rose, everything stands out so much more with
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.
24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are
filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped
at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and
encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely
takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this
television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.
PIP (Picture-in-Picture): Through an over-the-network firmware update,
the TV will support PIP (Picture-in-Picture). This feature lets you watch the
TV's over-the-air tuner in a small window on-screen, while viewing an Android TV

Bluetooth speakers). Bluetooth headphone volume level can be controlled from both the TV's remote and headphones.The TV's built-in speakers and audio outputs will be deactivated when streaming audio via Bluetooth.
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 watching.
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.
EQ: The TV offers four EQ preset sound modes - Standard,
Cinema, Music, and Live Football. The TV is also equipped with a 7-band EQ
