Sony KE55A8BU 55 inch Television 

BRAVIA OLED panel for the finest picture around

Backlighting technology is a thing of the past with OLED. Instead of using various arrays of LEDs to light an LCD display, OLED uses over eight million self-illuminating pixels for sensational image quality. Blacks are far deeper than LED displays and corresponding whites are much brighter. For ultimate in realism, OLED is where it's at.

X1 Ultimate with Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of OLED

To extract the maximum potential for the OLED panel, the Sony KE55A8BU utilises Sony's most powerful processor, the X1 Ultimate. Intelligently enhancing the brightness of hundreds of different picture elements, the X1 Ultimate gives incredibly realistic and detailed images. Pixel Contrast Booster maximises the potential of each pixel, getting the most lifelike and vibrant colour.

The smoothest images with X-Motion Clarity

Sony’s X-Motion Clarity is Sony’s flagship motion processor and takes OLED to the next level. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 55” TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies.

IMAX Enhanced brings the cinema home

Experience a step-up in picture quality by switching to IMAX Enhanced. Using IMAX Certified 4K HDR content, the IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. If you want to create the look of the movie at the cinema, IMAX Enhanced gets you closer than ever.

Sharpen up the sound with Acoustic Surface Audio

Sony’s unique Acoustic Surface Audio speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. By placing two, sound-positioning speakers at the back of the TV, the sound precisely tracks the image. Independent amp control ensures absolute precision of sound, making the audio more life-like than with conventional TV speaker systems.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision

HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.

Smart Android TV

Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Android platform brings more apps than any other smart TV platform, meaning you’ve got the widest choice of smart TV possible.

Voice control your TV

Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.

Adjustable stand suits your soundbar

If you’re placing your TV on a cabinet or table, low-profile feet give it a sleek, ground-hugging appearance. Adding a soundbar would usually obstruct the image, which is why this Sony features rotating feet that raise the TV’s height, giving the best of all worlds – with or without a soundbar.

Sleek, Sony style

With its slim, black bezel, this Sony TV looks every bit as sleek and timeless as you’d expect from a BRAVIA design. The elegant legs not only provide adjustable support but also have handy cable management built-in.
