4K HDR3: the next generation of picture quality
A High Dynamic Range (HDR)-compatible TV will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, colour and contrast, with a far wider range of brightness than other video formats. The result is the most lifelike picture TVs have ever been able to create, with brilliant highlights and fine detail.

Object-based HDR remaster
By analyzing the objects in each scene individually, the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme's Object-Based HDR remaster optimizes and enhances colour and contrast. It brings everything you watch closer to the quality of HDR. Dark elements get darker, bright elements get brighter and everything in between is more accurately lit, for never-before-possible realism in every scene.
Backlight Master Drive
The Backlight Master Drive is a backlight technology that combines an ultra-dense LED structure, a spectacular algorithm and a completely new optical design. Powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, this technology delivers incredibly deep black, dazzling lights and more vibrant colour than you've ever seen on the big screen.
Dual database processing
The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme has two imaging databases that work together in real time to improve your picture. By searching through thousands of picture patterns in Sony-exclusive databases for noise reduction and super-resolution, they remove unwanted noise and upscale every image to the clarity of 4K, so you can enjoy incredible picture quality no matter the source.
Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR
The 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme's Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR creates a smoother, more natural picture by minimizing its colour banding. With 14-bit powerful signal processing, it breaks up the solid bands of colour of an 8-bit or 10-bit source, up-converting to 14-bit equivalent gradation, with 64 times more colour levels. It delivers graceful reproduction of faces, sunsets and other areas of subtle colour gradation.
Backlight Master Drive Calibrated beam LED design
The Backlight Master Drive has a new optical LED design which keeps light only where it's needed in each scene. By gathering light more effectively, the design reduces diffusion and the flare effect that might be seen on other full-array TVs, for greater brightness and more accurate contrast than ever before.
Backlight Master Drive Discrete LED control
Combined with the latest local dimming algorithm, the Backlight Master Drive discretely controls each LED in the ultra-dense structure. This delivers total precision for unparalleled contrast and realism.
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO: backlight brilliance
This unique backlighting algorithm faithfully reproduces a far wider brightness range than a conventional LED TV with brighter peaks and deeper, more revealing shadow detail and blacks. When combined an HDR signal you'll experience even greater brilliance in every scene as it increases the quality of HDR with finely-gradated bands of colour and more vibrant colours.
4K X-Reality PRO: enhance every picture up to 4K
Discover a thrilling world of extraordinary clarity. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by our most powerful 4K picture processing technology ever. Individual parts of each scene are analyzed and matched with a special image database that independently addresses texture, contrast, colour and edges. The difference is clear with supremely lifelike detail, whatever you're watching.
Unique to Sony, a TRILUMINOS Display enriches your viewing experience with a wider palette of colours and more natural shades and hues.

DSEE restores detail to your digital music
Low-resolution Internet video, catch-up TV and other heavily compressed audio files don't always sound so great. A large amount of information gets thrown away when digital audio is compressed. With Digital Sound Enhancement Engine (DSEE) technology, lost frequency components (especially high frequencies) are restored for natural sound with a more spacious feel.
Clear Phase for smooth, balanced frequencies
