Sony® S990 Curved LED HDTV

Bring the curved screen experience of a movie theater into your living room and immerse yourself in more brilliant colors than you've ever seen before on a TV with TRILUMINOS display. Powerful, angled speakers surround you with rich, bold sound, while the X-Reality PRO picture engine delivers clarity and detail at its best. Home theater has never been closer to the real thing. Sony<sup>®</sup> S990 Curved LED HDTV


A true cinematic experience at home

A true cinematic experience at home

Surround yourself with a more immersive entertainment experience with a curved screen like what you find at the theater. The slightly curved screen provides a greater sense of depth to every scene by expanding your field of vision. The curved screen delivers a more natural viewing experience.

More brilliant color than ever before

Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors – just the way you want to see them. Hard-to-reproduce reds and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid, richer and more intense. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It's all thanks to a new-generation TV technology that makes colors purer and more distinct with a wider color range, giving images a heightened sense of depth.
More brilliant color than ever before
Everything looks better

Everything looks better

This is picture quality so lifelike it's like looking through a window. Each scene in everything you watch-HD movies, sports, even YouTube clips and home movies-is presented with unprecedented detail, and astonishing color as Sony's latest-generation X-Reality PRO picture engine cleans and refines images – restoring them to their original beauty with rich colors and high contrast - for our most lifelike picture ever.

Precisely-angled surround sound

The S990A's multi-angle speakers provide sound you might expect from a dedicated surround sound system. It's the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience. The 40 watt8 front facing speakers are angled in multiple directions for superb results. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed virtual 5.1 soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action.

Not a bad seat in the house

Not a bad seat in the house

You'll be hosting the next big game at your house with the S990. The slight curvature of the screen helps viewers sitting at varying angles to see more and have a more comfortable view of the screen than traditional flat screens. Engineered to produce a wider angle of visibility, the S990 has a more consistent image from every viewpoint in the room.

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.
The difference is dynamic
Moves like real life.

Moves like real life.

Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.

Your smartphone, now on TV

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 S990A, 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 TV5. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV2. 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 TV6..
