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. Please
use a premium high speed HDMI cable with 18 Gbps and above to view HDR content.
- 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. HDR is only supported on the TV HDMI 2 & 3 inputs. 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 available.
- 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 HDR Processor X1 Extreme: 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 Sony's renowned 4K
Processor X1, it delivers unprecedented picture quality for everything you
watch, upscaling content from any source nearer to 4K HDR quality.
- 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler: The 4K HDR Processor X1
Extreme employs Sony's 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler to enhance Ultra-HD, HD,
and SD images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural
detail and astounding color. The 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler upscales your
favorite TV shows, DVDs and Blu-ray movies, even video-on-demand content,
and smartphone videos to Ultra-HD quality. The 4K X-Reality Pro Upscaler
breathes new life into everything you see with phenomenal 4K (3,840 x 2,160)
- Object-Based HDR Remaster: By analyzing the objects in
each scene individually, the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme's 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 get brighter and everything in between is more accurately lit, for
never-before-possible realism in every scene.
- Dual Database Processing: The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme has two
imaging databases that work together in real time to improve your picture.
By searching through thousands of picture patterns in Sony-exclusive
databases for noise reduction and super-resolution, they remove unwanted
noise and upscale every image to the clarity of 4K, so you can enjoy
incredible picture quality no matter the source.
- Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR: The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme's 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 gradation.
Backlight Master Drive: The Backlight Master Drive is a
backlight technology that combines an ultra-dense LED structure, a spectacular
algorithm, and a completely new optical design. Powered by the 4K HDR Processor
X1 Extreme, this technology delivers incredibly deep black, dazzling lights, and
more vibrant color than you've ever seen on the big screen.
- Calibrated Beam LED Design: The Backlight Master Drive has a new
optical LED design which keeps light only where it's needed in each scene.
By gathering light more effectively, the design reduces diffusion and the
flare effect that might be seen on other full-array TVs, for greater
brightness and more accurate contrast than ever before.
- Discrete LED Control: Combined with the latest local dimming
algorithm, the Backlight Master Drive discretely controls each LED in the
ultra-dense structure. This delivers total precision for unparalleled
contrast and realism.
TRILUMINOS Display: Unique to Sony, a TRILUMINOS Display
enriches your viewing experience with a wider palette of colors and more natural
shades and hues. 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
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO Technology: 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 3x that of 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 4K/HDR
with finely-gradated bands of color and more vibrant colors.
MotionFlow XR 1440 Technology: Enjoy exceptionally smooth and sharp details
even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR 1440. Sony's MotionFlow XR 1440
technology feature an extremely precise backlight control that is synchronized with the
liquid crystal movement from frame-to-frame creating clearer, sharper moving
images. MotionFlow XR 1440 combines 120 frames-per-second with the TV's very advanced
LED backlight system to simulate a 1440 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 1440 provides
really 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.

compatibility with Ultra HD Blu-ray players and 4K Satellite/Cable providers.
- 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.
- Analog Video: The TV is equipped with two analog video
inputs. There is a component video input that will accept 1080p

Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to
the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This
setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast
distinction for the darker picture scenes.
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.
Active 3D Technology (2 glasses included): The Sony
