Not just 4K, this is Sony 4K
With Sony televisions, everything you watch is sharpened and refined with the latest detail enhancement and noise reduction technology for amazingly realistic pictures.
As close to reality as you can get
Object-based HDR remaster
Now you can watch everything close to the beauty of 4K HDR. You'll see contours on mountains, hidden textures on flowers, depth in clouds, and wildlife has the contrast and colour of nature, for a more natural and realistic picture on screen.
Making colour and contrast more real
With object-based HDR remaster (1), the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve (2). Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures and more realistic pictures.
See more detail with databases for noise reduction and upscaling
Dual database processing
One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.
1. Noise reduction database
Compressed noise is identified by the database which includes "before and after" data on how a picture should look and removes the compressed picture noise.
2. Upscaling database
The upscaling database also includes "before and after" data, which is used to upscale the signal and create a more realistic picture.
Less banding for a smoother picture
Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR
There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping™ 4K HDR reveals them all. It creates a smooth, natural picture as you watch, without the "banding" that can occur on other TVs.
64 times more levels of colour in every scene
14-bit signal processing breaks up the solid bands of colour, effectively smoothing out the gradation between shades—displaying a 14-bit equivalent gradation, even from an 8-bit source, showing 64 times the colour levels of a conventional display.
Take every picture closer to 4K
Unique to Sony, 4K X-Reality PRO picture processing upscales every pixel for remarkable clarity. Pixels across multiple frames are analysed and images sharpened and refined in real time.
A variety of noise reduction techniques are used by 4K X-Reality PRO to sharpen and refine images. See how scenes become clearer, smoother and more natural.
Bringing every pixel to life
With 4K X-Reality PRO, patterns in images are compared with patterns stored in a unique database to find the best hue, saturation and brightness for each pixel. We use the knowledge gained from developing and filming blockbuster movies and TV programmes to deliver supremely lifelike detail in everything you watch.
