With this new range, Sony aims to offer the most immersive experience on the market, with industry-leading picture quality, innovative sound and seamless user experience framed in premium large screens. By utilising Sony’s best-in-class Picture

Processor X1™ Ultimate, clear and precise picture quality is achieved for a highly realistic viewing experience.

The new models will continue to deliver the

creator’s intent with Netflix Calibrated Mode, offering studio-quality Netflix content, and IMAX® Enhanced™ (in select models), which brings the IMAX Experience into the home by offering a new level of sight, sound and scale. Sony’s new TVs will also introduce Ambient

Optimization, a new technology that optimises picture and sound quality in any customer environment. In addition to Ambient Optimization, the new

Sony TVs will feature a new Immersive Edge design concept. In order to create even more viewing immersion, a discrete stand is now located at the edge of the screen.

For the upcoming next generation gaming consoles, select new models will support 8K resolution, 4K 120fps high frame rate and fast response time via HDMI inputs to deliver their maximum performance for a cutting-edge gaming experience.
