Masters of light

Sony televisions reproduce a wider range of brightness, which more closely reflects the real world than most other TVs. And with wider and better contrast, more detail and natural colours appear too.

Amazingly bright, incredibly slim

Slim Backlight Drive™

Our innovative Slim Backlight Drive cleverly guides light to where it’s needed most on screen. You’ll enjoy the best of both worlds - exceptional picture quality in an ultra slim TV.

How the Slim Backlight Drive works

The dual layer edge backlighting structure directs light where its needed

The Slim Backlight Drive™ has two layers of light guide plates, allowing precise local dimming control, similar to the quality of a conventional edge- LED TV. Together with our X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO backlighting algorithm, this new structure creates beautiful contrast from an incredibly slim form.

X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™

By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™ reveals a brightness range several times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV, and it enhances any source to near HDR quality with a wider range of brightness.

How X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™ works

With extraordinary precision in backlight control, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO makes darker areas darker and brighter scenes brighter – revitalising every scene with the widest range of brightness possible.

Optimising brightness, frame by frame

4K Processor X1™ with Dynamic Contrast Enhancer

4K TVs with the 4K Processor X1 dramatically improve the brightness range, even without X-tended Dynamic Range PRO. This is thanks to Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, which optimises the range of brightness frame by frame according to what’s happening on screen.
