Following in the footsteps of an award-winner, the Sony BRAVIA XR-55A80KU is a winner once again.
Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR just keeps getting better
Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR marries AI to cognitive intelligence for a picture balance that’s best suited to humans rather than just algorithms. The processor analyses every element of the picture to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The latest processor features Depth Control and Flexible Colour Contrast Control for even greater depth and colour vibrancy with this Sony 55 inch TV.
OLED optimised by XR
With over eight million, self-illuminating pixels, OLED already offers sensational picture quality. For the deepest blacks and greatest contrast, it’s hard to do any better. Add XR Picture Processing, however, and you get OLED optimised. The powerful XR Picture processing maximises OLED’s potential, meaning you get an even brighter and more detailed picture.
XR Triluminos Pro and OLED Contrast Pro for ultimate colour
XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR Colour to deliver the truest and most natural colour. For the highest levels of contrast and detail, XR OLED Contrast Pro adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail within darker areas.
The smoothest images with XR OLED Motion and 4K XR Smoothing
Keeping the millions of pixels in check, Sony’s XR OLED Motion technology keeps the action flowing smoothly. Minimising blur, the powerful processing strikes the perfect balance between ultimate detail and the smoothest motion. 4K XR Smoothing reduces picture banding, giving a more lifelike and natural flow to images.
Picture quality as the creator intended – NCM, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-55A80KU reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker intended. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who wish to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.
Acoustic Surface Audio+ for perfect sound to picture sync
Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio+ speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Triple, vibrating actuators positioned behind the screen pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. With left and right subwoofers fitted, Acoustic Surface Audio+ gives a bottom-end boost, too.
XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling takes a regular audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect – making you feel more immersed in the action.
Works with BRAVIA CAM*
The optional BRAVIA CAM (extra cost option), is the innovative new camera that does so much more than video calls. BRAVIA CAM recognises where viewers are sitting and optimises the picture and sound to suit. It also facilitates the use of gesture control. All this plus it still functions with your TV to make it the ultimate device for video calls.
*Gesture control and auto optimisation function due later in 2022
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.
