Turn everything you watch into a truly immersive sound experience

With sound and picture in perfect harmony, you'll hear more realistic sound and exceptionally clear dialog. Built-in subwoofers provide powerful bass for immersive cinematic sound.

Enjoy immersive and engaging cinematic content as the creator intended

High Dynamic Range (HDR)7 picture is the way TV was always meant to be watched. Ultra-high resolution and HDR video content combine to bring dazzling detail, color and contrast to everything you watch, while keeping a far wider range of brightness. Dolby Vision brings scenes to life with striking highlights, deeper blacks, and vibrant colors.8 IMAX Enhanced content brings the immersive entertainment experience into the home and is digitally remastered to provide sharper images and more powerful sound—just as the creator intended.9 Netflix Calibrated Mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix original content and reproduce picture quality as brilliant as the studio evaluation monitor, faithfully reproducing the creator's intent and vision.10 Whichever format, Sony TVs deliver picture-perfect reality, creating an immersive and engaging cinematic experience.
