Sony Z8H 65" 4K Full-Array LCD TV

If you think the Sony Z8H 85" TV is expensive, then think again! A 30" Sony 4K studio monitor costs around US$45,000 - this is the stuff used by Hollywood and the best broadcast outfits. Sony chose 8K for this model in order to get close to the pixel density of these pro monitors and if performance trumps price then the 85" Z8H certainly provides an immersive, studio-quality viewing experience in your living room.

Overview

With 7680x4320 pixels, Sony's 8K technology powered by their acclaimed X1 Ultimate processor gives you 4x the resolution of 4K for an incredibly immersive viewing experience. Your movies, TV shows, and pictures will fill your field of view with extraordinary depth, detail, and texture. The television uses exclusive Sony 8K technologies to give you the best picture you can imagine no matter what content you are watching.

Picture Processor X1 Ultimate: Moving from film to TV requires content to be digitally compressed, which affects picture quality. What the creator sees during shooting is encoded before transmission to the television, then decoded and converted so it can be displayed on the panel. Sony's Picture Processor X1 Ultimate minimises image deterioration during this process utilising the following technologies. While developing Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, Sony followed a 'not one bit lost' philosophy. Signals are processed at ultra-high bit rates, then restored to their original quality. High-precision components in the signal processor help preserve detail across the whole image for TV ultimate realism and visual expression. With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate detects hundreds of different objects on-screen and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and colour so everything you watch is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.

8K X-Reality Pro w/ Dual Database Processing: Simply upscaling from a 2K or 4K signal to 8K will not achieve the exceptionally high quality standards of 8K, creating the need for dedicated 8K upscaling technology. Sony's 8K X-Reality PRO upscaling technology meets this need with an exclusive 8K dual database system. Patterns in scenes are analysed and enhanced in real-time using dual database processing to find the most accurate texture and character for incredibly detailed, close-to-true 8K pictures. Pictures are sharpened and refined in real time, revealing details in the architecture of the building that were previously difficult to see.

Sony Proprietary "X" Technolgies: The Sony Ultra-HD 4K TV utilises proprietary Sony "X" technologies to create a picture with dynamic contrast, smooth motion, and a wide viewing angle.

  • 8K X-tended Dynamic Range Pro: Generating brightness on an 8K panel can be difficult due to its low transmission rate. This 8K TV precisely balances light output across the screen to ensure scenes are full of breathtaking contrast. With zones of LEDs lit independently, the Full Array LED provides more realistic contrast by making light areas lighter and dark areas darker. Contrast is further enhanced by 8K X-tended Dynamic Range PRO, which adjusts brightness for higher peaks in glare and deeper blacks in shadow.
  • X-Motion Clarity: On some screens, sports and fast action scenes can seem to go by in a blur. Sony's latest X-Motion Clarity technology keeps everything smooth, bright and clear. Each "blink" is individually controlled and its duration optimised, while brightness is boosted when needed, so you won't miss a thing. X-Motion Clarity technology keeps fast action smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimise blur. Even during high speed scenes, pictures stay true with no loss in brightness.
  • X-Wide Angle: Sony's X-Wide Angle panel ensures colours stay true from wherever you're watching; you'll see pictures that are bright and clear from any angle. Watching TV from the sides is as satisfying as from the centre. The TV's screen is also edged with a slim, narrow, 4-sided frame that maximises the viewing area.

HDR (High Dynamic Range): High Dynamic Range (HDR) enhances the dynamic range of a picture, increasing the contrast between the brightest whites and darkest blacks. Every pixel is made more accurate, regardless of resolution, bringing scenes to life with greater detail. HDR's greater dynamic range of luminosity or brightness levels brings greater contrast & wider colour spectrum to the screen. This increased contrast reveals the subtle nuances of the image, from detailed blacks and shadows to the brightest whites and colours, plus greater depth. Previously hidden areas of dark shadow and sunlight are now full of clarity and detail. Movies and TV shows in HDR are closer to the original recording and the director's vision with more brightness, contrast and colour, for a truly lifelike viewing experience.
