    • Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate, bringing the best out of OLED beauty
      With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate analyzes content to bring out OLEDs intense contrast with pure blacks, peak brightness and natural colors. Object-based HDR remastering happens in real time to detect hundreds of individual objects on-screen and intelligently upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality so everything you watch is clear, bright, and incredibly realistic.1,2
    • Boosting OLED color and contrast for extra depth and realism
      Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels1 are precisely and individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate and supercharged via the Pixel Contrast Booster to enhance color and contrast 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.
    • Acoustic Surface Audio
      Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, sound comes to you from the entire screen, creating an immersive multidimensional audio experience. It’s picture and sound in perfect harmony. With a subwoofer integrated into the rear of the TV, you’ll hear more dynamic, bass-heavy sound – ideal for action movies and music.
    • Watch what you love, control it with your voice
      Sony’s Android TV with the Google Assistant provides a smarter viewing experience. Easily search and watch your favorite movies, get answers on screen like sports scores or weather updates, control your TV and even your home - all with your voice. Just start with pressing the Google Assistant button on your remote to ask it questions, control smart home devices or access many of the apps and services you already use every day.3  In addition, cast your favorite apps with Chromecast built-in4, or enjoy a huge range of apps from Google Play™, including YouTube™, Netflix, Prime Video, Spotify, and more.3
    • Supreme resolution, whatever you're watching
      Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution1,2 with Sony’s unique 4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution. Our Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate precisely analyses and processes data to enrich pictures with lifelike detail, textures, and clarity in everything you watch. Leveraging intelligent dual database processing, content looks cleaner with less on-screen noise. Even images filmed in Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality™ PRO.1,2 Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by Sony’s Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate.
    • TRILUMINOS Display, bringing you all the world’s colors
      By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS Display, powered by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, 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. See exactly what the creator intended with the advanced color, light, and gradation of the TRILUMINOS™ Display.
    • Bright and clear motion
      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 minimize blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high speed scenes.
    • 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. An embedded light sensor optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view. For uncompromised sound, Acoustic Auto Calibration™ analyzes the rooms environment and reproduces sound that's enhanced and optimized to your room.
    • Well-connected to your smart home
      With Google Home5 and Amazon Alexa6 compatibility, simply voice-control your TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube with Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa. Apple HomeKit and Airplay 2 support seamlessly integrate your iPhone and Siri devices with your Sony TV for effortless smart home management and content streaming.7
    • See the big picture with HDR, Dolby Visions, IMAX Enhanced and Netflix Calibrated Mode
      High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. Ultra-high resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness.1 Dolby Vision™ brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper darks and vibrant colors.8 The IMAX Enhanced™ program brings the immersive entertainment experience into the home. IMAX Enhanced content is digitally remastered to provide sharper images and more powerful sound—just as the creator intended.9 Netflix Calibrated Mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix original content and reproduce picture quality as brilliant as the studio evaluation monitor, faithfully reproducing the creator's intent and vision.10 Whichever format, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience.
    • Incredibly thin one-slate design
      With our super-slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, blending harmoniously in any room environment. The flush surface with narrow aluminum bezel keeps you focused on the picture, not the television. Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden, so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from any angle.11
    • Premium metal stand, ready for soundbars
      Our flexible low profile design provides a distraction-free experience, or the stand can be adjusted to raise the TV to fit a soundbar seamlessly.
    • Mount your Sony TV like a work of art
      Make the most of your living space. The SU-WL855 ultra slim wall-mount bracket is designed to hang select Sony BRAVIA™ OLED and LED TVs flush to the wall, just like any other work of art. Pull out your TV and swivel it left to right to adjust the screen angle for optimal viewing.12
    • Experience content as the director envisioned
      When pictures are digitally compressed from film to TV, quality is compromised and your experience is not as the director intended in the studio. A wide range of unique features lets you enjoy studio-quality entertainment in your own home, just as the director envisioned.
    • High performance calibration for professionals
      Our TVs receive high performance calibration that has never previously been possible using CalMAN™ software. It allows adjustments to be made with finer precision than conventional picture quality settings to meet the strict requirements of creators in the post-production stage. Colors are reproduced with maximum fidelity to the original TV signal, giving exceptional picture control for a TV. CalMAN also features an easy-to-use interface that has been well received by calibration specialists.13
