- Four times clearer than HD
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.
- HD enhanced to 4K Ultra HD quality
Suddenly, everything looks better. All of your existing HD sports, TV shows and movies are up-scaled to super clear 4K quality. 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.
- See colors never seen on a TV 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.
- 4K Ultra HD now and in the future
Sony 4K Ultra HD TV owners are the first in the world to be able to enjoy hit Hollywood movies in 4K Ultra HD, using the Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player (sold separately). Sony 4K TVs are also ready to support the next 4K video formats, such as 60p 4K sports video, that will become possible using the new HDMI 2.0 specification. A convenient and free Internet firmware update will be available late 2013.
- Bonus Film
A free download of the summer blockbuster hit Elysium featuring Matt Damon and Jodi Foster is included with purchase of the 4K Ultra HD Media Player (FMP-X1) for viewing on your Sony 4K Ultra HD TV.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
