It's quite simply the most immersive, highest-resolution TV experience possible. Sony's premium 4K Ultra HD TV boasts four times the clarity of HD, more brilliant expanded color and up to two times the brightness range of standard LED HDTVs. Breathtaking detail is depicted with pinpoint accuracy for the most natural images. The TRILUMINOS display produces the widest color spectrum we've ever offered in a TV. Best of all, you'll enjoy Sony's exclusive X-tended Dynamic Range local dimming technology for up to 2x the brightness range with deeper blacks than before.
Four times clearer than HD - The 4K Ultra HD screen contains over 8 million individual pixels that transform everything you watch into a life-like experience. Advanced picture processing also ensures that every single pixel displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail.
Upscale everything you watch to 4K Ultra HD - Suddenly, everything looks better. All of your existing HD sports, TV shows and movies are upscaled to super clear 4K quality. Even YouTube clips and smartphone videos are enhanced with stunning results. The 4K X-Reality PRO picture engine analyzes and processes every image to refine color, clarity and detail for a beautifully natural picture.
Up to 2x brightness means contrast beyond comparison - Sony's exclusive X-tended Dynamic Range technology produces contrast beyond comparison. You'll get the peak brightness that LED TVs are known for as well as deeper blacks previously only associated with Plasma TVs. Keeping the light areas bright while keeping blacks truly black is called widening dynamic range. In the image shown, notice the difference in detail of the dark buildings combined with the brightness of the city lights. The difference certainly is dynamic.
More brilliant expanded color - Spoil yourself with the widest color spectrum we've ever offered on a television. Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors-just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It's all thanks to a TRILUMINOS display that uses more colors to produce a more vibrant picture.
Wedge Sound worthy of the picture - It begins with the physical shape of the TV. The Wedge creates extra space at the bottom of the TV for larger speakers and built-in subwoofers. And larger speakers mean richer sound, deeper bass, and louder volume, so you'll hear every hit in a football game and feel the pounding music in a chase scene.
