Sony BRAVIA XR55A80JU
Sony’s powerful new heart – Cognitive Processor XR
Taking picture and sound processing to the next level, 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 processor also enhances lower resolution images, giving you smoother, more natural pictures from sources such as terrestrial TV.
OLED meets XR Picture
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 the best Sony OLED to date. The powerful XR Picture processing simply delivers the brightest and purest images yet on a Sony 55 inch TV.
The smoothest images with OLED XR Motion Clarity and 4K XR Smoothing
Keeping the millions of pixels in check, Sony’s OLED XR Motion Clarity 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, IMAX Enhanced, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-55A80J reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. 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.
XR Sound Position with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Sound Positioning works to sync the sound to the correct part of the image, as accurately as possible. 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.
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. Speakers positioned behind the screen pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. With enhanced actuators and tweeters fitted, the latest Acoustic Surface Audio+ version is better than ever.
