Super resolution, whatever you’re watching

See glorious 4K pictures, rich with real world detail and texture, exclusively powered by our 4K HDR processor X1™. Images filmed in 2K and even Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 4K database.

Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colours

By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.

Less blur, even in fast scenes

On some screens, sports and fast action scenes go by in a blur. Our Motionflow technology keeps movement smooth and clear by creating extra images between images and black segments between scenes. The result? Less blur and afterimage, more flowing motion.
