|Get real |
Now you can enjoy pristine picture quality beyond the home theater. Robust 1080p image resolution is perfect for watching movies, sports and HD television in the bedroom or at the office. Take advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation 3 entertainment system.
Moves like real life
Motionflow XR 480 delivers lifelike clarity to your TV even when displaying quick motion and fast camera movements. You'll see less blurring on things like golf balls, footballs and even in complicated action sequences in your favorite movies - and it will all be amazingly realistic!
The difference is dynamic
Achieving a natural look on-screen in HD is now possible with Dynamic Edge LED with frame dimming. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, the contrast is boosted in just the right areas to produce pitch-black night scenes and scenes with vibrant color for a more realistic picture.
Go way beyond cable
You can access thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music on the Sony Entertainment Network. By connecting to the Internet via your home network you have access to endless entertainment, from Full HD 1080p video and 3D content to great made-for-TV apps such as Netflix.2
Put on the comfortable 3D active glasses and find yourself on the 50-yard line with the active 3D technology. The incredible Full HD 1080p clarity combined with active 3D puts you in a whole new dimension of phenomenal entertainment.1

Don't all of your personal photos and videos deserve the big screen? Experience your content on a grand scale simply by connecting your compatible smartphone, computer or Xperia Tablet S via your existing Wi-Fi network. Then you can easily "throw" your videos, photos and music files to your HDTV.6
Life-sized video calls
It's like they're in the room with you. Skype video calls bring your family and friends closer than ever as they appear as large as life on your big screen -for free.2 Just connect the easy-to-use Skype camera (sold separately) for a face-to-face look at the caller on the beauty of your Sony HDTV.
Wi-Fi without a router
Sometimes your friends want to share their personal photos and videos on your beautiful HDTV. With Sony's Wi-Fi Direct Mode, your friends can throw personal content to your TV without connecting to your home network. Wi-Fi Direct completely bypasses the Wi-Fi access point/router, so it's easy to set up.4
Control your TV with your phone
Now there's one less remote control on the coffee table. Just download the free Media Remote app and turn your iPhone, Android phone or Xperia Tablet S into a versatile remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard.3 It makes changing the channels and typing searches ultra fast and convenient.
Handheld gaming goes big
Play your PSP system or other handheld gaming consoles (with SD output) on your HDTV with no irritating black borders surrounding the picture. Just select Game Mode for an ideal fit to your TV screen according to the input. Better yet, Super Resolution Processing delivers a clear, crisp view in HD size.
| ||A sense for songs |
What's that song in the TV show, movie or commercial you're watching? Press 'TrackID' on your remote and get the song name and artist instantly.6 You can also start the TrackID service by shaking a smartphone that's running the Media Remote app.4 Very convenient.
Just like being there
Relive the memory of your child's first steps with the realism of 3D. Auto 3D Depth Adjustment precisely recreates the moment, making even 3D home movies look more natural by correcting images that appear too close to your eyes, or too far away. What's more, it reduces eye strain and enhances whatever you're watching - from 3D Blu-ray Disc movies to web videos.1
Enjoy reduced power consumption of up to 30% while maintaining beautiful image quality. First, the TV recognizes the type of program you're watching. Then it optimizes the viewing settings, automatically reducing power consumption while enhancing color and detail on the screen and conserving energy used by the backlight.5
You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV - always there if you need it.
Searching for shows and music on your TV is so simple. Just press 'GUIDE' on your remote and see what's on and what's coming up with a handy image to go with it. You also get an episode synopsis, cast and crew details and suggestions to related shows, on-demand movies and Blu-ray Disc titles.6
