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. It's the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience, with sound you might expect from a dedicated multi-channel surround sound system.
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.
Your smartphone, now on TV - Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W802A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally "mirror" what's seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it's charging from the TV. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV. 3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the one-touch remote. You'll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone's screen on the TV.
Go beyond cable with Internet TV - Welcome to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet and touching the 'SEN' button the TV remote, you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more.
Goodbye wires, hello Wi-Fi. - Maximize your entertainment while reducing cable clutter. Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
Theater-like 3D - Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies. Four pair of glasses included.
Control TV with your smartphone or tablet - Get more from watching television with TV SideView. Control the TV or browse the channel guide with your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS), all without having to minimize what you're watching on the TV. Learn more about the show you're watching right now, like cast and episode details. Search what's available to watch on TV, internet videos and apps like Netflix. Once you find what you want to watch, you can select to view it on the TV. Make TV viewing more social by Tweeting about the show from your mobile device.
Twice the fun: 2 player games with no split screen - Say goodbye to split screen. Now you and a friend can both experience your own big-screen view of the action as you play nail-biting games on your PlayStation3 system. SimulView gaming presents two separate Full HD pictures: each player watches independently through light easy to wear optional Simulview glasses that don't need batteries. There's already a growing choice of SimulViewTM game titles available.
Quartz-cut design - Inspired by the sharp edges and color found in quartz crystals the Quartz-cut design brings a new edge to TV with a hint of translucent color that emphasizes the hidden gem within. Brilliant color, sharp detail and an overall sense of beauty can be found in the thin border that traces the edge of the TV screen.
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. 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.
