Once you've seen the world in 4K Ultra High Definition, there's no looking back. With Sony 4K Ultra HD, breathtaking detail is depicted with pinpoint accuracy for the most natural images. You also get the widest color spectrum we've ever offered. It's quite simply the most immersive, highest resolution TV experience possible.
That's rightfour times clearer than Full HD 1080p1. 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) resolution2.
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 colorsjust 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 201313
Movies in 4K Ultra HD
Introducing the world's first in-home media player to bring you 4K Hollywood hit movies (sold separately). Four times clearer than HD, Sony's Video Unlimited 4K service allows you to rent or purchase feature films, TV shows, documentaries and more8. The 4K Ultra HD Media Player comes preloaded with 10 bonus feature films plus a collection of other free video shorts.
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.
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.
Your smartphone, now on TV
Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android™ phones and tablets to the X850, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally "mirror" what's seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it's charging from the TV10. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV11. 3. Using One-Touch Mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the one-touch remote. You'll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone's screen on the TV3
