Everything looks better
This is picture quality so lifelike it's like looking through a window. Each scene in everything you watch—HD movies, sports, even YouTube clips and home movies—is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's latest-generation X-Reality PRO picture engine cleans and refines images – restoring them to their original beauty with rich colors and high contrast - for our most lifelike picture ever.
Moves like real life
Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.
Sound that’s all around you
Whether you’re watching movies, live concerts, drama or sports – enjoy rich, dynamic sound from your TV speakers that feels like it’s filling the room. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action. An enlarged ‘sweet spot’ lets you enjoy optimum audio reproduction, even if you’re not sitting dead-center right in front of the TV screen.
The difference is dynamic
It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with frame dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture.
