The lineup of TVs includes the A8H, X90H, X75H and X80H 4K models. An at-home viewing experience has never been so clear.

This technology promises to deliver the core of Sony's development process, namely a personalised, immersive and true-to-life viewing experience. 

Sony’s best-in-class Picture Processor X1™ Ultimate produces clear and precise picture quality, offering customers an enhanced experience. What's more is Sony’s TRILUMINOS™ Display will provide home viewers more shades of red, green and blue. 

The TVs are equipped with Netflix Calibrated Mode, delivering studio-quality Netflix content straight into your home. 

The new models feature an Immersive Edge design concept, providing a minimalist, noiseless stand located at the edge of the screen. 

Sony's UI menus and voice controls have been revamped and enhanced to provide users with a seamless experience. Voice control functions have also been expanded on, to enable viewers to enjoy hands-free connected devices, live TV and apps.

Sound

The TV lineup offers a complete new sound experience. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides. This gives a sense of realism for a truly immersive sound experience. Viewers will hear a precise and high-quality audio, with speakers behind the screen of A8H Series, emitting a powerful and clear sound. In the X950H Series, sound positioning tweeters around the screen precisely control sound placement, to beautifully match picture and clear sound. 

App compatibility

Each of the TVs offer a seamless connectivity to most devices with Google Home compatibility. This will allow users to voice-command their TV to perform actions. These include changing the channel, volume or to play and control videos from YouTube.
