The secret behind Sony 4K HDR
4K High Dynamic Range
High Dynamic Range is the new standard for picture quality, offering a much wider range of color, contrast, and clarity. A Sony 4K HDR TV improves the picture even further, using technologies like 4K X-Reality PRO™, X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO, and TRILUMINOS Display™ to reveal previously unavailable levels of realism, making you really feel a part of the scene.
Unrivalled contrast — deeper black, brighter lights.
Backlight Master Drive™
The Backlight Master Drive™ can display an unprecedented dynamic range with incredibly deep black and dazzling lights, powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme. This backlight system has an ultra-dense LED structure, a unique local dimming algorithm and optical design.
Light where it's needed
Calibrated beam LED design
The Backlight Master Drive™ has a unique design that gathers LED lights in one spot, reducing light diffusion and the flare effect that can be seen on other full-array LED TVs. It ensures that each LED emits a straight beam for a clear picture that displays vivid lights and dark blacks.
Amazingly bright, incredibly slim
Slim Backlight Drive™
Our innovative Slim Backlight Drive cleverly guides light to where it's needed most on screen. You'll enjoy the best of both worlds — exceptional picture quality in an ultra-slim TV.
How the Slim Backlight Drive works
The dual-layer edge backlighting structure directs light where it's needed
The Slim Backlight Drive™ has two layers of light guide plates, allowing precise local dimming control, similar to the quality of a full-array LED backlight. Together with our X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO backlighting algorithm, this new structure creates beautiful contrast from an incredibly slim form.

Capturing the full range of dark and light
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™
By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas, and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™ reveals a brightness range three times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV, and it enhances any source to near-HDR quality with a wider range of brightness.
Optimising brightness, frame by frame
4K Processor X1™ with Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
4K TVs with the 4K Processor X1 dramatically improve the brightness range, even without X-tended Dynamic Range PRO. This is thanks to Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, which optimizes the range of brightness frame by frame according to what’s happening on screen.
