XBR55X900A - Sony 4K 55" Ultra High Definition LED TV

The new Sony XBR55X900A brings out entertainment like never before. The new XBR series of 4K TVs from Sony display video with breathtaking Ultra High Definition resolution—four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p—it will bring the ultimate viewing experience to your living room like never before..

4K Resolution, for the ULTIMATE in High Definition

The Sony 4K XBR55X900A was developed with one purpose in mind: provide the absolute best picture possible in an LED TV. The "4" in 4K stands for four-times the resolution of standard High Definition. Combined with Sony's proprietary TRILUMINOS display technology, which accurately recreates billions of shades of colors, the XBR55X900A 4K television presents a viewing experience that has to be seen to be believed. Movies can now be rendered in 4K resolution will appear so lifelike, you'd think you were transported into another world. Even a simple 1080p video source is given new life, as Sony's 4K-Reality PRO processor up converts it to 4K resolution. With the enhanced Sony 3D TV capabilities, you can immerse yourself in your favorite programs.

Built-in Wi-Fi + Sony Entertainment Network = Unlimited Entertainment

Complementing the hardware are a variety of processing technologies that further enhance the entertainment experience. SimulView leverages the XBR55X900A's 3D capabilities and 4k resolution to deliver an innovative split-screen option for gamers. When playing a multi-player game, each viewer dons a pair of Sony 3D glasses, and the XBR55X900A will simultaneously display both player's screen, across the full size of the TV screen. Each player sees only his own screen, in Full HD. Sports fans and action movie lovers will appreciate Sony's Motionflow XR 960 technology, which ensures even the fastest-moving action is rendered with complete clarity, and without any streaks or ghosting.

Of course, like many Sony products, the XBR-55X900A is more than just a television; it is a complete multimedia entertainment hub. Built-in Wi-Fi makes this 4K TV your portal to the internet, and the endless entertainment it contains. A suite of apps, like Netflix, Youtube, Facebook and more replicate your smartphone apps on glorious 55-inch UHDTV display. If you've got an app on your phone that's not available in the Sony Entertainment Network, three different connection modes let you mirror your phone content on the TV screen. And if that's still not enough for you, you'll also have easy access to all of the photos, videos and data stored on your home's Network-Attached Storage (NAS).

Known for always being on the frontlines of entertainment innovation, the XBR-55X900A 4K TV is a perfect example of how Sony continues to push the envelope. With unparalleled image quality and a wealth of internet-enabled features, this a TV truly unlike any other available today.

Features

Clarity quadrupled
That’s right—four times clearer than Full HD 1080p. Get acquainted with the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV. With four times more resolution than Full HD, the 4K Ultra HD screen contains over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160). Advanced picture processing ensures that every one of those pixels displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail. 

Everything enhanced
Suddenly, everything looks better. Now even old movies and smartphone video clips are enhanced with stunning results. The new 4K X-Reality™ PRO chip enhances HD (or lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding color. The latest Reality Creation database and Super Resolution processing breathes new life into everything you see with phenomenal 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution. 

More brilliant color than ever before
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 new TRILUMINOS display that gives images a heightened sense of depth. 

Sound Innovation
These aren’t the TV speakers you’re used to. Unique to Sony TVs, Magnetic Fluid Speaker technology allows a thinner, more efficient loudspeaker that offers faithful reproduction of high-fidelity sound. The frontfacing speaker system directs sound right at you with 65 watts of power. S-Force® Front Surround 3D simulates 5.1 sound, with an enlarged sweet spot that everyone in the room can enjoy. 

The difference is dynamic.
It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture. 

Movies in 4K Ultra HD
Get the most out of your 4K Ultra HD TV with feature films in true 4K resolution only from Sony. The 4K Media Player (sold separately) comes preloaded with 10 feature films and video shorts. Coming soon is the Sony 4K network video service offering access to a library of 4K movies and TV show titles – Available 2013. 

Lifelike motion.
Watch the sprinter break off the blocks and race smoothly as the camera follows him from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow™ XR 960 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement. 

Your smartphone, now on TV
Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the X900A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast™ enabled to the TV. 3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia™ smartphone to the onetouch remote. You’ll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone’s screen on the TV. 

Go way beyond cable with built-in Wi-Fi®
Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity and open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix®, Pandora®, YouTube™, Facebook® and more.

Custom control installations.
RS-232C and IR-in for custom control installations. 

3D immersion
There's 3D, then there's 3D with 4K (3,840 x 2,160). Life-like 3D images emerge from the 4K screen screen with realism that makes your heart race. The level of detail is absolutely stunning—it's the closest thing to a 3D theater in your living room. Light, comfortable, passive 3D glasses offer superb image quality and a noticeable step above anything you've ever experienced at home.

Twice the fun: 2 player games with no split screen
Say goodbye to split screen. Now you and a friend can both experience your own big-screen view of the action as you play nail-biting games on your PlayStation®3 system. SimulView™ gaming presents two separate Full HD pictures: each player watches independently through light easy to wear optional Simulview glasses that don’t need batteries. There’s already a growing choice of SimulViewTM game titles available. 

Control your TV with your smartphone or tablet
Get more from watching television with TV SideView. Control the TV or browse the channel guide with your smartphone, Xperia™ Tablet or other tablet device (Android or iOS), all without interfering with what you’re watching on the TV. Learn more about the show you’re watching right now, like cast and episode details. Search what’s available to watch on TV, internet videos and apps like Netflix®. Once you find what you want to watch, you can select to view it on the TV. Make TV viewing more social by Tweeting about the show from your mobile device

Photos are better with 4K.
See more details in your DSLR photos (8MP+) with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160). View, share and edit photo memories with PlayMemories Studio™ software and your PlayStation®3 system on the TV screen. Scroll effortlessly through your image collection. Pinpoint images by date and time, smiles or location.

    Just bought a new XBR-55X900A and love it. Despite numerous posts, the screen picture is much brighter/vibrant and sharper with better color, yet smooth pixel-less for regular network broadcasts. Blu-ray disk movies are improved with sharpness, better color, and a picture that "grabs you", so I do not agree with some posts that the picture is the same as the 1080p TVs. The up scaling is noticeable. Also YouTube is now offering 4K videos so you can see what new source material will look like. Not sure what the new Blu-ray disks with 4K mastering will do for this new 4K TV. Sony provides via mail 3 of these disks when buying the new 4K TVs The biggest improvement for me was the exceptional sound quality and passive 3D. The difference between my 2 year old NX810 and this X900A is remarkable My sound is better than I was getting using a Boston Acoustics sound bar (w/subwoofer) with my old TV. The sound is very close to my Bose system. Very happy with the new speakers. And yes my 55inch takes up by 60" entertainment center space or I would have purchased the 65" TV. But I am happy with the new speakers and the fact they are attached makes for a good looking TV. My wife is very happy as the new TV looks great with her furniture instead of a sound bar popping out of a wall or corner. These new speakers produce an exceptional sound better than any Sony TV I have ever had including those that had front mounted speakers. There are 6 speakers with a total 65watts The 3D is exceptional, as good as a movie theater with great 3D depth and a brighter picture (my 2 complaints with the NX810). Much better depth and much sharper than my previous Sony TV (NX810). Also the simulated 3D is also good. And the passive 3D is easy on your eyes. Just watched Avatar 3D and my eyes are not tired as they would be with an active 3D. 3D is now worth watching and the glasses are light on your ears as they are only a thin plastic (no batteries) Price is steep but happy with the purchase

    I am disappointed that Sony has not bothered to develop a code for working with DirectTV remotes. There IS a method for programming my model - and the TV can find my model - but it says repeatedly that programming failed. I called customer service and they said that I did all steps correctly but oftentimes this has not been figured out. Thus - I have to use one remote to change the channel and another to change the volume (same for ON/OFF of the TV and Direct tv box - you MUST use 2 remotes). Sony is aware of this and does not feel our large investment is worth addressing this

    Need to use 2 remotes for DirectTV

    Comments about Sony 4K 55" XBR 3D LED HDTV:

    I am disappointed that Sony has not bothered to develop a code for working with DirectTV remotes. There IS a method for programming my model - and the TV can find my model - but it says repeatedly that programming failed. I called customer service and they said that I did all steps correctly but oftentimes this has not been figured out. Thus - I have to use one remote to change the channel and another to change the volume (same for ON/OFF of the TV and Direct tv box - you MUST use 2 remotes).

      Comments about Sony 4K 55" XBR 3D LED HDTV:

      I had an 8 year old Sony Bravia tv that finally died. I wanted a similar replacement, but was hoping to score something similar in quality. Yes TVs are cheaper, but traditional LCD screens are just terrible quality. I cannot believe people are ok watching something so sub-par. This tv wAs more than double of what I planned on spending, but worth every single penny. The sound is better, too, with the speakers on front instead of underneath the screen. You will be amazed with the picture and we just have HD direct tv and a bluray player. Can't wait to see true 4k ? Programming at home.

        Comments about Sony 4K 55" XBR 3D LED HDTV:

        It's 4K...so great picture. What sets this apart for me...Sony. Sony Blu Ray player, Sony media player, Sony internet video and apps etc... It all works together for the best viewing experience. You cannot go wrong. Also, the sound. The sound is good enough for me. I actually took down my surround system and have a much cleaner overall look to the room. I am disappointed there is no subwoofer output...that would have been the icing on the cake. I am very happy with my all-Sony system. If you are looking for 4K...I highly recommend going Sony.

        A BIG LIE

        By sabinor

        from Miami, FL

        Comments about Sony 4K 55" XBR 3D LED HDTV:

        I have been saving money for this TV or a long time, mainly because the advertisement that it can upscale lower resolutions. I finally purchased it & it doesn't upscale at all. It's a BIG disappointment & not worth $3,000. I have always been a SONY fan, but this time I'm not pleased, My recommendations: Don't buy it till 4k content is more available.

        Best Picture

        By Koorosh

        from Unionville, CT

        Comments about Sony 4K 55" XBR 3D LED HDTV:

        Pros: Best Picture and really sharp and clear. Cons: I am not impressed with the sound at all, sometimes specially while watching Netflix or HuluPlus I am almost turning the volume up to about 70 - 80. The worst thing is though this TV is a smart TV it does not support a keyboard, there is an app for it but it is not very convenient to use that app. those who are counting on browsing the Internet with this TV, just forget it without the key board.
