  • 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme: So real you can feel it
    • Made to enhance the latest generation of 4K HDR pictures, the 4K HDR Processor X1TM Extreme brings reality to every scene. With 40% more real-time image processing than our renowned 4K Processor X1TM, it delivers unprecedented picture quality for everything you watch, upscaling content from any source nearer to 4K HDR quality.
  • Uncover the detail with 4K HDR
    • A High Dynamic Range (HDR) compatible TV will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, colour 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.
  • TRILUMINOS Display: Extra colours, extra brilliance
    • More colours means more realism. A TRILUMINOSTM Display selectively maps colours across a wider gamut, ensuring subtle colours appear naturally on screen and do not become oversaturated. You'll enjoy vivid, authentic images that bring out the emotion in every scene.
  • Rediscover every detail with 4K X-Reality PRO
    • Discover a thrilling world of extraordinary clarity. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by our most powerful 4K picture processing technology ever.

  • Clean rear look
    • Easily manage all your cables, keeping wires hidden in the cover.
  • Beautiful picture in any style
    • Made to fit your lifestyle beautifully, on the TV stand or wall mounting.
  • Maximizes the viewing area
    • The screen is edged with a slim, narrow, 4-sided frame that maximizes the viewing area.
  • MotionflowTM XR keeps the action smooth
    • Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with MotionflowTM XR. 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. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.
  • Object-based HDR remaster
    • By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, Object-based HDR remaster optimizes and enhances colour 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 never-before-possible realism in every scene.
  • Super Bit MappingTM 4K HDR
    • Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimizing its colour banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of colour of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more colour levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets and other areas of subtle colour gradation.
  • Dual database processing
    • The 4K HDR Processor X1TM 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.
  • Say what you want to see with voice search
    • Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry. You can also get recommendations; asking for "romantic comedies," for example, brings up a list of suitable options.
  • Content Bar: find everything fast
    • The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you're looking for. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, videos on demand, downloaded TV shows and much more. You can even customize the content bar to show you the content you go to most often first.
  • Chromecast built-in: Plays nice with your other devices
    • BRAVIAR is Chromecast built-in ready so you can easily cast your favourite entertainment like YouTubeTM or Netflix from your personal device on to the stunning BRAVIAR screen.4 You can cast from Android, iOS, or your laptop.

    • Discover movies and TV shows, games and much more from Google PlayTM. Enjoy a huge and ever-growing choice of apps5 on your TV in a brand new way.
  • Made to listen: ClearAudio+
    • Make your listening as lifelike as your viewing. ClearAudio+ fine-tunes TV sound for an immersive experience that seems to surround you. Hear music, dialogue and surround effects with greater clarity and separation, whatever you're watching.
  • DSEE restores detail to your digital music
    • Low-resolution Internet video, catch-up TV 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 for smooth, balanced frequencies
    • BRAVIAR uses a powerful computer model to analyse 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.
  • Cinematic S-Force Front Surround
    • Enjoy an immersive soundstage that pulls you into the heart of the action. 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.
  • IR Blaster-control everything with one remote
    • The Infra-red (IR) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your Set-top box (cable box) with the TV remote controller.
  • Enjoy HDR gaming with PlayStationR
    • Sony 4K HDR televisions are perfect partners for PlayStationR4 and PlayStationR4 Pro consoles. Immerse yourself in a responsive, fun-filled gaming experience with vivid textures and intensely vibrant colours. See your favourite games come to life with the incredible picture quality.
