Unrivaled picture quality : The all-new Backlight Master Drive can display an unprecedented dynamic range with near perfect black levels and dazzling brightness that is impossible for other TVs to reproduce. How?

Calibrated Beam Design: Send light only where it is needed. Each LED emits a straight beam for greater brightness and more accurate contrast than ever before.

Upscaling to near 4K HDR : Our newly developed 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme outperforms our conventional 4K Processor X1 with 40% more real-time image processing power. It takes everything you watch and improves it to near 4K HDR quality. Object-based HDR Remaster technology can detect, analyze and optimize each object in the picture individually to adjust the overall contrast for a more natural and realistic picture on screen.

Backlight brilliance : Experience greater brilliance in every scene. X-tended Dynamic Range PRO utilizes the discrete LED control of Backlight Master Drive to create images with brighter peaks and more shadow detail. When combined with HDR video, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO increases the quality of HDR so you experience even greater color and contrast.

Discrete LED Control: Backlight Master Drive uses a new, innovative algorithm to control the TV’s ultra-dense LED structure. Each LED is controlled individually for a picture even more precise than that of a standard full-array TV, which groups LEDs into larger zones.

Uncover the detail with 4K HDR : High Dynamic Range (HDR) will change the way you look at TV. Combined with 4K Ultra HD resolution, HDR video content delivers exceptional detail, color 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.

Clear picture, smooth gradations : Sunsets are as bright and clear as real life. Super bit mapping4K HDR, a feature of the 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme, reveals thousands of shades and gradations of light. It creates a smooth, natural picture as you watch, without the ‘banding’ that can occur on other TVs. 14-bit signal processing recognizes subtle color transitions and effectively smooths out the gradation between shades, to show 64 times the color levels of a conventional display.

More color, depth and realism : Colors are as rich and vivid as nature’s own thanks to the TRILUMINOS Display with more shades of red, green and blue than ever before. You’ll enjoy vibrant, authentic images that evoke the emotion in every scene. When combined with HDR video, TRILUMINOS Display further increases the color depth for noticeably brighter and more realistic colors.

Upscale to a more natural picture : The difference is clear. You’ll see lifelike detail and stunning clarity, no matter what you’re watching. Two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving images in real time. 4K X-Reality PRO upscales images to near 4K clarity while a second database cleans the picture and reduce on-screen noise. Every single pixel is enhanced beautifully by the powerful 4K HDR Processor X1 Extreme.


Motionflow keeps the action smoother than ever : TV that keeps up with real life. Sony’s refresh rate technology (Motionflow XR 1440) builds upon the native 120Hz panel to allow fast moving action sequences in sports and movies to be seen with lifelike clarity.

A sophisticated slate design : From the front, the design exudes sophistication in the form of a simple black slate, letting viewers immerse themselves in the stunning power of 4K HDR (High Dynamic Range). The design features premium gold finish, and keeps all of your cables completely concealed, ensuring that the TV strikes an elegant look from any angle. The Z9D comes in a 65 inches, 75 inches or 100 inches Class to fit even the grandest room.

 

A world of possibilities : Find all the entertainment you can dream of, faster than ever. From movies and TV shows to thousands of apps, Sony’s Android TV brings you everything in an instant.

Smart home automation : Beyond streaming content, Sony’s Android TV platform allows Home Automation control directly from the TV, via the Logitech Harmony Hub. IoT (internet of things) devices such as lights, thermostats, Blu-ray players, security cameras other home entertainment devices can be controlled and automated via the push of a button on the TV’s remote.

Just say what you want : Spend less time browsing, and more time watching. Voice search on Android TV provides you with the power of Google search in 42 languages, allowing you to find content across different services without the hassle of time-consuming text entry.
