Frequently Asked Questions


What is the difference between 1080p and 4K?
4K Ultra HD TVs deliver more than 4 times the resolution of 1080P HDTVs. On a 1080p HDTV, there are over 2 million pixels that make up the image while on a 4K Ultra HD TV, there are over 8 million pixels. The resolution of an HDTV is 1,920 X 1,080 (horizontal X vertical) while the resolution of a 4K Ultra HD TV is 3,840 X 2,160 (horizontal X Vertical). Since there are 4 times more pixels, 4K Ultra HD TVs can more easily reproduce the smallest details. Due to this increased resolution, you can now sit closer to a larger TV screen and enjoy a clearer picture.

Will my regular cable programming, Blu-ray Discs, DVDs, and streaming entertainment appear different on my 4K Ultra HD TV?
Yes. The Sony 4K Ultra HD TVs enhance the picture quality of everything you watch with Sony’s exclusive upscaling technology2. The Sony 4K X-Reality PRO Picture engine analyzes and refines images from all sources. Your TV shows, movies, sports, and streaming entertainment will look better2. And with more than 7,000 Blu-ray discs on the market, there is plenty of movie content to enjoy at home, now upscaled to near 4K.

How close to the TV must I sit to appreciate 4K?
The short answer is that between 5 and 6 ft. is the ideal viewing distance for a 55” or 65” Sony 4K Ultra HD TV.

However, on a 55“, you can now sit as close as 3.6 ft and enjoy a visibly smoother and more detailed picture (e.g you won’t see the individual pixels). On a 65“ TV, you can sit as close as 4.2 ft. to appreciate 4K.

Since the pixels on a 4K Ultra HD TV are four times smaller than on an HDTV, it becomes harder to see them. In fact, you can sit closer to a 65” Sony 4K Ultra HDTV than you can to a 35” HDTV. When you sit closer to the screen, you feel like you are immersed in the action. You get the same visual impact as you would sitting in the best seat at a movie theater.

What can I currently watch in true 4K? In near-4K?
For your immediate enjoyment of your Sony 4K Ultra HD TV, Sony's unrivaled 4K X-Reality PRO picture processor ensures that all of your existing TV programs, sports and movies are upscaled to super clear 4K quality2.

Starting in May, 2013, customers can purchase a select number of Sony Pictures Blu-ray titles optimized for 4K Ultra HDTVs. These HD titles were created from the highest quality 4K source materials with expanded color for a more vibrant and dynamic picture. They play on all Blu-ray players and PlayStation 3's. They are the ideal Blu-ray Disc solution for new 4K Ultra HD TV owners and great for Blu-ray collectors as they also display excellent picture quality on standard HDTVs. These titles include: Angels and Demons, The Other Guys, Taxi Driver, The Amazing Spider-Man, Spider-Man, Ghostbusters, Glory, Battle: Los Angeles, Karate Kid (2010) and more are scheduled to release later in 2013.

For the highest resolution experience possible, customers who own a Sony 4K Ultra HD TV can access feature films, TV shows and videos in 4K resolution1 from Sony's 4K Ultra HD Media Player (sold separately) and Video Unlimited 4K service (fees apply). The media player comes loaded with a variety of films and other videos to start enjoying 4K right away.

When will more 4K content be available?
Native 4K content is quickly being adopted by Hollywoods‘ leading filmmakers. In addition, many studios are investing in the 4K restoration of films in their libraries. Films originally shot with 35MM film can be re-mastered in native 4K resolution. In addition, broadcasters and cable companies are investing in 4K technologies to be able to deliver more 4K content expeirences to consumers at home.

What device options do I have to enjoy 4K? Do I need a 4K Blu-ray Disc player and 4K receiver to enjoy my 4K Ultra HD TV?
You can start enjoying your 4K Ultra HD TV with your current Home theatre components. No new devices are needed. You do not need a 4K upscaling Blu-ray player or receiver to use with your Sony 4K Ultra HD TV.

Your current Blu-ray Disc player, cable signal or even your personal photos and videos make for ideal content to view on your Sony 4K Ultra HD TV. You are already creating 4K content when you take pictures on an 8 MP camera, and now you can finally enjoy the full detail of your photos on the big screen.

You can also enjoy feature films in true 4K resolution with the Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player. The Video Unlimited 4K service will offer ever-expanding options for a library of 4K movies and TV show titles12.

What other 4K products and services does Sony manufacture?
As Sony did with the transition to HD, Sony is leading the way with the transition to 4K from the lens to the living room, including:

  • The world’s most extensive line of 4K digital motion picture cameras including the F65, PMW-F5 and PMW-F55 cameras

Size Name: 65-Inch Verified Purchase
Today I threw out the humongous carton that came with the Sony XBR65X900A.

I bought this set exactly 30 days ago from Amazon. It took a lot of effort to get it ready for view, the TV cabinet, the Sony technicians for the 4K Media Player, Time Warner Cable, and a physical wired ethernet connection for the Sony Media Server. The hard work was worth it as the picture from this thing is better than anything I have seen at the best New York theaters; including screens at AMC Loews Lincoln Square 13, BAM Rose Cinema, Lincoln Plaza, Ziegfeld, Regal Battery Park and the fabulous Paris Theatre. The sound at level 45 is at 98 decibels in my 21x14' room while playing Avatar in 3D. Oh yes, the 3D with the Sony passive glasses are the absolute best 3D I have seen at any setting. Less confusing than at an IMAX theater, the details are pristine and there are no confusing backgrounds to foregrounds even with Avatar. Watch Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas and you have the best 3D demo up to 2013.

Now about all the non 4K sources upconverted to the XBR65X900A, DVD and pre DVD stuff will look no worse than they did with any current top of line 1080p set, including the great plasmas from Panasonic and Samsung. (I did sit for hours at the Best Buy Lincoln Center store where they had this set next the the 4K set from Samsung and the near $4,000 plasmas from Panasonic and Samsung. I bought in blu-rays to compare....)

With Time Warner Cable premium channels like HBO and Showtime, the upconversion is seamless and looks like film with the extra resolution and spark you just will not see at most theaters. You will not be annoyed as in certain theaters where the screen has scratches, dark spots, curvy lines and or the brightness isn't uniform. The Sony 4K is sharp and true to the edges.

Size Name: 55-Inch Verified Purchase
If you're looking for a 4K TV and have the option to choose any other model, please do so. Until more content comes out one of the biggest benefits to 4K TVs is the ability to watch 3D in full 1080p Resolution. According to Sony's website both the 55" and the 65" version like all other 4K TVs on the market have this ability. Well that's a complete lie.

When I initially purchased this TV I was amazed at the color and picture quality, I even enjoyed the sound coming from the side speakers so much that I didn't need to setup my sound system. However when I popped in a 3D Movie I was disappointed to see visible vertical lines. I assumed this was probably a limitation to my blu-ray player. However, watching the same movie on the same player at my buddy's place who owns the 65" version he bought AFTER seeing my 55" version shows how wrong I was. Passive 3D on his TV compared to mine made it seem like I owned a cheaper older 1080 TV and in a way I was right...

After doing some more research I realized that the 55" version of the 900a does not come with 3D at 1080p and has the same limitations as old 1080 panels. This is due to the size of the panel preventing them from fitting the appropriate FPR technology in/on to the smaller panel. Thus making the actual vertical resolution of this TV in 3D 1920x540p the very same issue older 1920x1080p TVs had in 3D. Afterwards I called Sony Technical Support, the first representative told me this was impossible and that the TV should come with 2K (1920x1080p) Resolution just like the other models as advertised, but after transferring me to a level 2 support rep my fears were confirmed. This TV only shows 3D at 1920x540p resolution. No firmware or changes to the panel could fix this.

Size Name: 55-Inch
I rated this television 5 stars after making a few picture adjustments that seemed to literally POP the picture out - possessing a depth-of-field approaching 3D; however, I now must downplay that review.

In addition to my 4K I own a Sony XBR-HX929 (a year old set), and found that making similar picture adjustments produced a near identical picture.

This realization was disconcerting given the vaunted 4K technology in which I made a significant investment was reduced to me having to stand a few feet away to attempt to see something, anything, that was different (i.e., better than my year old set). Knowledgeable of the return policy of the vendor from whom I purchased the 4K, I found myself thinking more and more of divesting myself of this...underwhelming yet significantly priced new innovation.

In hopes that perhaps seeing native 4K from the media server (just made available) would sway me, I purchased one and enthusiastically hooked it up and awaited my appointment a week later to deal with the HDMI circuit board swap to allow the television to communicate with the server (I guess Sony forgot that communication with the server was necessary?). The technician showed up and did his work (upgrading to HDMI 2.0). Upon pressing the power button I was immediately rewarded with a 4K symbol fading in and out showing signs of life for about 30 seconds...before morphing into a black screen with an error code.

The technician couldn't do anything about it and referred me to Sony phone support to rectify the problem. I started that process the following night attempting various fix suggestions that didn't work and waited fifteen minutes after my case was escalated to the higher level before hanging up.
