Product Details

Sony 50" Black 1080P LED HDTV, Model KDL50R550A

Go beyond simply "watching" movies, and immerse yourself in the experience with the Sony KDL-50R550A 50" 3D LED HDTV. Although only 2 ¼ inches deep, its massive screen and brilliant picture quality will engulf you in a view so realistic you'll forget you're just watching TV.

Dazzling Display with Full HD 1080p and 3D

Sony employs an array of video enhancing technologies to get the absolute best picture possible out of the Full HD 1080p LED TV screen. A dynamic contrast ratio of over 1 Million helps achieve a picture with stunning brights and deep, true blacks. Sony's Motionflow XR 240 technology reduces motion blur, keeping fast action looking sharp. The Sony KDL-50R550A's passive 3D technology (the same used in movie theaters) creates immersive, lifelike 3D images, using lightweight, battery-free glasses. And gamers will love Sony Simulview, which uses the Sony 3D technology to simultaneously display a different image to each of a pair of players wearing the 3D glasses. So, instead of a split-screen view, each gamer sees a full 50 inches of screen, with only their half of the game.

Internet TV, Your Favorite Apps, and DirecTV Genie Compatibility

The way we receive multimedia content is always changing, and the Sony KDL-50R550A LED TV offers multiple options. You'll find all of the typical inputs for connecting video games or a blu-ray player, including a component input, two USB ports and four HDMI connections. But because the R550A series are smart TVs, you'll also have the power of the internet available through your remote. The Sony Entertainment Network gives you access to popular apps like Netflix, Youtube, Pandora and more. You'll also be able to wirelessly stream media straight from your home network, so you can store home videos on your computer, but watch them on the big screen in stunning HD. DirecTV customers who use the Genie™ will also have one less component to deal with, because the R550 series TVs offer full DirecTV functionality without needing an additional receiver.

Easily View Smartphone Media on Your Sony TV

Nearly everyone today has photos and videos on their smartphone or tablet that they'd like to share, and the Sony KDL-50R550A gives you two options to get them on the TV. If your phone is compatible with the Mobile High Definition Link standard, you can connect it to the Sony R550 TVs and enjoy all of your photos and videos, resized to fit the larger screen. The connection will charge your phone, and you can even use the Sony TV remote to navigate your media. The second option lets you connect through Miracast™, a wireless standard that uses Wi-Fi to connect two devices without the need for a wireless access point. Using Miracast, your phone's display will be mirrored on the screen of the Sony TV.

Features:

  • So bright and so thin
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • Lifelike motion
    Watch the football retain its detail during a kickoff and move smoothly as the camera follows it from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow™ XR 240 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement
  • Receiver-less TV
    For DIRECTV customers with a Genie™ Whole-Home HD DVR, the Sony R550A series allows you to enjoy full DIRECTV service and HD DVR functionality without an additional receiver. Place the Genie™ Whole-Home HD DVR in any room of the house and enjoy the clean look of your big screen on the wall without the clutter of connecting a DIRECTV receiver to it
  • Go beyond cable with Internet TV
    Welcome 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 and touching the ‘SEN’ button the TV remote, you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, and made-for-TV apps like Netflix®, Pandora®, YouTube™, Facebook® and more
  • Goodbye wires, hello Wi-Fi®
    Maximize your entertainment while reducing cable clutter. Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity
  • Your smartphone, now on TV
    Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With two ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the R550A, 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 TV4. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast™ enabled to the TV
  • Theater-like 3D
    Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience3. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies. Four pair of glasses included
  • Clearly different
    Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions
  • Against the grain
    Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid
