With over 8 million self-illuminating, individually controlled OLED pixels, the A1 series brings a significantly enriched visual experience with unprecedented black, authentic colour, blur-less image and a wide viewing angle. This level of supreme contrast reveals detail, depth and textures for a view that’s stunningly real. Sony’s unique OLED technology, enables one to explore a world that’s totally authentic and closer to reality.

Acoustic Surface™ revolutionizing sound technology

OLED

BRAVIA OLED’s innovations do not end with incredible picture performance. The A1 series is the world’s first1 large screen TV which can emit its great sound from the screen itself. Taking advantage of the OLED’s backlight-less structure, Sony developed a new Acoustic Surface technology which can emanate sound directly from the screen itself. An integrated subwoofer behind the TV provides deep, powerful bass for all movie experiences. The two innovative Actuators behind the TV vibrate the screen to create sound that's truly engaging. This allows a perfect unification of picture and sound unattainable by conventional TVs.

It produces a wide sound and image synchronisation even off to the sides. Together with OLED’s exceptionally wide viewing angle, the A1 series offers unmatched visual and aural experience regardless of viewing position. The Acoustic Surface™ technology lends to cutting-edge design of the A1 series by doing away with conventional speakers usually located around the TV. The result is unique stand-less form factor with no distraction from the picture.

One Slate design

OLED

The One Slate concept is an approach that condenses the TV into a single slate, giving a natural elegance for users to experience as a work of art in and of itself. It aims to eliminate every extraneous element from the TV design, allowing users to immerse themselves more fully in the viewing experience.

One Slate mold has the OLED display technology incorporating all the different functions within the screen itself thereby eliminating the need for distinct elements like speakers, a bezel, or a stand. For the audio, the sound is incorporated into the screen using new sound technology that generates sound through vibrations in the display itself, consolidating the visual experience and the aural experience into a single slate. The TV has a sleek, natural presence in wall-mounted configurations too, and the overall structure is kept minimal with a primary display slate and a support slate on the back.

4K HDR Picture
The world of HDR has been greatly expanding with the advent of video streaming services like Netflix, amazon prime and recently with PlayStation®4 gaming. Sony’s 4K HDR provides sharpened and refined image quality with the latest detail enhancement and noise reduction technology for amazingly realistic pictures. Now more than ever before, accurate image processing is playing a crucial role in delivering dazzling picture quality.

The A1 series offers a totally new visual experience with combination of superior picture quality of OLED with X1 Extreme, the world’s first1 sound system in large screen TV, and its unique cutting edge form factor. The X1 Extreme precisely controls the tremendous number of pixels and extends the capability of OLED to deliver an exquisite 4K HDR picture.

Triluminos display
