|Everything looks better
This is picture quality so lifelike it's like looking through a window. Each scene in everything you watch—HD movies, sports, even YouTube clips and home movies—is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's exclusive X-Reality PRO picture engine draws on its database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display our most lifelike picture ever.
Experience Sony’s best picture quality and extraordinary contrast with full-array local dimming technology. This innovative technology consists of an array of LED lights that adjust the bright and dark levels in each area of the screen for more precise control of the picture.
Our clearest picture ever
When you watch a kickoff at the stadium, the ball doesn’t blur from left to right. Recreating natural motion with reduced judder and less blur, Motionflow XR 960 helps you see each end-over-end rotation by taking motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to quadruple the motion effect so you see everything as if you were there.
Tough, yet beautiful
Only Sony has it. Corning's exclusive Gorilla Glass lets you enjoy an incredibly durable, remarkably lightweight, frameless design with a seamless, sophisticated look. Paired with the OptiContrast panel, Gorilla Glass helps boost contrast and brightness while minimizing unwanted light reflections.
Brace yourself for pure 3D excitement that feels like you're standing on the 50-yard line. Through advanced Active 3D technology, immerse yourself in Full HD 1080p clarity and phenomenal 3D picture quality. Just slide on the comfortable 3D active glasses and enter a whole new dimension.1
