Sony | KD55-A8 | 55 Inch | 4K HDR UHD Android OLED TV
Deep OLED blacks, pure sound harmony
A high powered processor in this 4K OLED TV creates a beautiful OLED picture in total harmony with sound. All from a stunning one-slate design.
Sony X1 Ultimate The processor that brings the best out of OLED's beauty
The same powerful processor used to drive our 8K TVs precisely analyses image data to bring out the intense contrast of OLED with pure blacks, peak brightness and truly realistic pictures on the Sony A8
OLED and Pixel Contrast Booster
Boosting colour and contrast for extra depth and realism
See real-world colours, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, colour and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver.
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, the KD-55A8BU can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.
Supreme resolution, whatever you’re watching
Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony’s unique features. Our X1 Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1 Extreme, precisely analyses and processes data to enrich 4K3 pictures with real world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimised by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real world textures.
Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colours
By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.
Making fast-moving scenes bright and clear
With pictures created by millions of individually controlled pixels, everything is sharp and clear on OLED. And with our X-Motion Clarity™ technology, even fast action stays smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimise blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high speed scenes.
Beautiful colours from any angle
Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the centre. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colours consistent and true, wherever you’re watching.
Acoustic Surface Audio
Sound and picture in harmony - the screen is the speaker
By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience.
Sound from the screen, incredibly immersive
Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator behind the screen vibrates discreetly to create sound so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening – dialogue from characters, engine noise from a car.
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.
Enjoy multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround
Hear sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi surround speaker system within your TV so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound.
Clearly hear voices
With Voice Zoom, you can hear human speech clearly without having to turn up the volume – ideal for news bulletins and documentaries.
Enjoy studio quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode
This mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals and reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master. With Netflix Calibrated Mode, the creator's vision and intent is faithfully preserved.
