Extraordinary resolution, whatever you’re watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to close-to-lifelike 8K resolution with Sony's unique features. Our X1™ Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1™ Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to power 8K pictures with four times the resolution of 4K, for scenes rich in depth, texture and detail. Even images filmed in 4K and 2K are upscaled to close to 8K by 8K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 8K database. The resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures. 

Believe in precisely controlled true contrast

Generating brightness on an 8K panel can be difficult due to its low transmission rate. This 8K TV precisely balances light output across the screen to ensure scenes are full of breathtaking contrast. With zones of LEDs lit independently, Full Array LED provides more realistic contrast by making light areas lighter and dark areas darker. Contrast is further enhanced by 8K X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO, which adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow.

Making color and contrast more real

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.

Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colors

By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

How X-Wide Angle preserves color when viewing from the sides
Beautiful colors from all sides

Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Sony's original optical design to control light from the backlight, the X-Wide Angle panel ensures colors stay true from wherever you're watching.

How X-Motion Clarity makes fast moving scenes bright and clear
Making fast-moving scenes bright and clear

On some screens, sports and fast-action scenes can seem to go by in a blur. Our latest X-Motion Clarity™ technology keeps everything smooth, bright, and clear. Each "blink" is individually controlled and its duration optimized, while brightness is boosted when needed, so you won't miss a thing.

Sound and picture in harmony—the frame is the speaker 

Hear sound from the right place in the scene with speakers integrated into the frame. Having the speakers closer to the center of the screen brings sound and pictures into harmony.

Hear sound from the right place in the scene

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. Our Acoustic Multi-Audio™ includes a vibrating frame tweeter, a speaker that enables sound to follow the action for a truly immersive experience. Independent amps are controlled separately to precisely manage sound positioning of this speaker in high tone areas, enhancing sound pressure and stability for more realism.

Center speaker mode for clearer dialogue, vocals and instruments
The centerpiece of breathtaking sound

Use your BRAVIA as a center speaker and hear dialogue, vocals and instruments with exceptional clarity. Simply connect your home theater system to unleash an immersive cinematic experience.

Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos®

Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos™, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.

Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment

Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony’s unique ambient optimization technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.

Brightness refined for your room

On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This 8K TV includes an embedded light sensor that optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view.

Sound tailored to your environment

Sound experience can change depending on your room environment. For example, curtains absorb sound, while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This TV detects objects and reproduces sound that’s enhanced and optimized to your room.
