Exceptionally detailed 4K UHD resolution combines with the latest HDR technology to render a superbly lifelike picture. The brand's TRILUMINOS display achieves a stunningly wide array of gorgeous colour, with beautifully smooth shading. Driven by the 4K X-Reality PRO engine, everything you watch is upscaled to near-4K quality, while MotionFlow XR ensures even the fastest action is pin sharp. Sony's suite of Smart features on the Android platform opens up a wealth of extraordinary online content, and the set's slim aluminium bezel edging completes the look of a supremely sophisticated home entertainment hub.
Plumb The Colourful Depths Of HDR
Sony are one of the forerunners of colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR with a staggering 10-bit colour depth. This means that there are over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and show shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. Usually, studios are forced to dilute the colour of their shows and films to fit on our TVs. Now, HDR screens like the XE80 can channel content from studio-to-living room with the same precision and utterly otherworldly hues.
Rich, Ravishing 4K
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 49” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.
Up-Scaling 4K X-Reality PRO
Enhance everything you watch on your Sony Bravia TV with 4K X-Reality PRO. This engine boosts the picture quality of everything from dazzling 1080p Blu-ray Disc™ movies to very low-resolution Web video to 4K. After analysing each pixel and comparing patterns, the system restores detail lost in compression and transmission. The system also reduces noise and reproduces optimum contrast, colour and sharpness. The result is that you experience stunning 4K picture quality with better clarity, for anything you watch.
Delightful TRILUMINOS Display
Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display Technology expands the range of colours of that you see on more conventional LED displays, injecting images with more lustre. The eye-popping picture is treated with deeper reds, more natural greens and sharper blues, giving your shows and films a richer palate. Combined with image-deepening HDR, this tech will make your viewing simply extraordinary.
With Motionflow XR 200Hz, every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal. Sports and fast-moving action look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural, with reduced blur and judder.
