Discover a picture so real you won't believe it's TV. With highly acclaimed X-Reality Engine technology that analyzes each scene, it's no wonder the colors and textures in everything you watch-HD movies, 3D, sports, even YouTube clips-look so natural. Lifelike motion comes via Motionflow XR 480 technology for that at-the-game feeling. And internet connectivity provides access to music, thousands of movies, TV shows, and more.
Get real. - Take a glimpse into reality with a picture so real you won't believe it's TV. Skin tones, landscape foliage and countless details come alive as Sony's exclusive X-Reality Engine displays the most realistic images. The processor optimizes four key characteristics-texture, outline, contrast, color-so each scene looks authentic.
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.
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 that pop with vibrant color. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture.
Go way beyond cable. - 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 you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more.
In-your-face action. - Brace yourself for pure 3D excitement that feels like you're standing on the 50-yard line. Through advanced Active 3D technology, immerse yourself in Full HD 1080p clarity and phenomenal 3D picture quality. Just slide on the comfortable 3D active glasses and enter a whole new dimension.
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. What's more, it reduces eye strain and enhances whatever you're watching-from 3D Blu-ray Disc movies to web videos.
Goodbye wires, hello built-in 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.
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.
All devices, together as one. - 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 Sony Tablet S via your existing Wi-Fi network. Then you can easily "throw" your videos, photos and music files to your 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.
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 Sony Tablet S into a versatile remote control with a full QWERTY keyboard. It makes changing channels and typing searches ultra fast and convenient.
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. You can also start TrackID by shaking a smartphone that's running the Media Remote app. Very convenient.
Save power, save money. - Enjoy lower energy bills with reduced power consumption of up to 30% while maintaining beautiful image quality with Eco Drive technology. It automatically reduces power consumption while boosting color and detail on the screen and conserving energy used by the backlight.
Handheld gaming goes big. - Play your PlayStation Vita 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.
Onboard manual. - 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.
Find it fast. - 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.
Find it fast. - Finding music is also a cinch. Music Search with the TrackID button cleverly recognizes the melody of the music playing on your TV. Want to go further? Search to find more songs by the same artist and other related web content. Share your discovery with the world via Twitter.
