Experience the brilliant realism of a beautiful OLED picture harmonised with Sony's Acoustic Surface Audio tech for exceptionally accurate sound. The A8's elegantly thin OLED panel is enriched by the authentic colour of a TRILUMINOS display, while Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound combine to immerse you in a cinematic experience. The Android platform opens up an enormous range of online content, you can control it by voice with the Google Assistant, and its One Slate design is super sleek. 4K OLED Screen The Organic LED display doesn't have a backlight, meaning that each pixel is self illuminating. Every speck of light controls its own luminescence for true depth and colour gradation. With 8 million of these pixels, this 4K OLED set produces impeccably deep blacks, bright whites, and scintillating colour, within a blur free image that is just as stunning from any angle. HDR with Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range deepens your view and shows shades previously unseen in home entertainment. Expanding light, dark and every colour in between to extraordinary new levels, this model's picture gets closer to real life. This set supports multiple HDR formats including Dolby Vision. 4K Ultra High Definition This 55 screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail. Features Acoustic Surface Audio Two specially designed actuators in the back panel utilise the entire screen as an acoustic surface. The screen is the speaker. Sounds emanate accurately from their point of origin within the image and an integrated subwoofer delivers powerful bass. It harmonises audio with visual, and enables super thin screen design. X1 Ultimate Picture Processor Sony's flagship processor enhances the detail and colour of every object on screen, providing clarity, depth and natural texture to everything you watch. X Motion Clarity Fast moving pictures are smooth and realistic. It delivers a blur free image without losing brightness; ideal for sport, action and gaming. Pixel Contrast Booster Enhanced colour contrast in high luminance. Everything you watch comes to life with fine detail and vivid colour. TRILUMINOS Display Accurately reproduces a wide spectrum of shades and colours. Coupled with Sony's Precision Colour Mapping technology, the result is breathtaking, yet realistic imagery. Dolby Atmos Sound Surround sound fills the room for immersive audio realism. Combined with Dolby Vision, it produces a richly cinematic experience. Netflix Calibrated Mode Specially tailored to ensure Netflix content is delivered at the visual quality the studio intended. Android TV with Voice Remote and Google Assistant built in This Sony smart TV allows you to talk to the remote to find films and TV series, switch apps, answer questions, and control other compatible smart home devices. You can access streaming services in an instant, including Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Google Play Movies and Disney+.* And you can display content from your smartphone, tablet or other devices with Chromecast built in. It also works with Alexa enabled devices, Apple Airplay and Apple HomeKit. Youview Catch Up In addition to a wealth of online entertainment, this set comes with built in YouView.

One Slate Design With super slim design, this OLED TV is remarkably thin and elegant. A narrow metal bezel keeps you focused on the picture, while cable management features keep connecting wires hidden from view to complete the seamless look. The flexible Metal Blade stand can also be adjusted to accommodate a sound bar. Perfect partners With TVs getting slimmer and built in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV's sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes.

  • MODEL KD55A8BU **** **** The Sony A8 is an absolute belter of a TV The films largely muted palette is punctuated by bright and vivid neon signs and holographic adverts and the A8 does justice to them both, masterfully combining subtlety and vibrancy, in a single image when required. This might not be a Master Series TV, but it still majors on realism and authenticity Clickheretoreadthereview Class leading upscaling and motion handling, TheSony A8 produced the sharpest and clearest motion weve witnessed on a consumer OLED to date. Clickheretowatchthereview Arguably the most exquisitely consistent, immersive and refined pictures weve seen on any TV to date. The level of refinement on show with traditionally difficult areas such as skin tones, dark colors and shadow detailing is as good as Ive seen anywhere outside of a professional OLED mastering monitor. Clickheretoreadthereview Deep OLED blacks, pure sound harmony A high powered processor in this 4K OLED TV creates a beautiful OLED picture in total harmony with sound. All from a stunning one slate design. The processor that brings the best out of OLED's beauty The same powerful processor used to drive our 8K1 TVs precisely analyses image data to bring out the intense contrast of OLED with pure blacks, peak brightness and truly realistic pictures. Boosting colour and contrast for extra depth and realism See real world colours, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, colour and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver. Object based HDR remaster With Object based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black to white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures. Supreme resolution, whatever youre watching Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sonys unique features. Our X1 Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1 Extreme, precisely analyses and processes data to enrich 4K3 pictures with real world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X Reality PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimised by Object based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real world textures. Sound and picture in harmony the screen is the speaker By having the screen act as the speaker, sound and picture work perfectly together with sound coming from the right place on the screen for a more cinematic experience. Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi dimensional experience Supreme pictures and sound, whatever the environment Sit back and enjoy the best possible viewing experience. Sony's unique ambient optimisation technology automatically adjusts picture and sound to your environment.....from PRC Direct
