A8H OLED 4K Ultra HD High Dynamic Range (HDR) Smart TV (Android TV)

Sony XBR55A8H

Features

  • By widening the color spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colors than a conventional television. It analyzes and processes data in every image to make colors even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.
  • Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony's unique features. Our X1 Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1 Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to enrich 4K pictures with real-world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.
  • See real-world colors, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, color and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture, and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver.
  • Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colors consistent and true, wherever you're watching.

Top 3 features

Boosting color and contrast for extra depth and realism

See real-world colors, discover the detail in deep shadow and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, color and contrast are enhanced in bright areas so you can enjoy scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture, and the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver.


Making color and contrast more real

Object-based HDR remaster

With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.


Supreme resolution, whatever you're watching

Any kind of content can be upconverted to lifelike 4K resolution with Sony's unique features. Our Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, twice as fast as the X1 Extreme, precisely analyzes and processes data to enrich 4K pictures with real-world detail and texture. Even images filmed in 2K and Full HD are upscaled close to 4K by 4K X-Reality PRO using a unique 4K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimized by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce virtually real-world textures.


Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colors

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

Sound from the screen, incredibly immersive

Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker. An innovative actuator behind the screen vibrates discreetly to create sound so what you hear comes from the place in the scene where the action is happening-dialog from characters, engine noise from a car.


Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos®

Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.


Enjoy multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround

Hear sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi-surround speaker system within your TV so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound.


Clearly hear voices

With Voice Zoom, you can hear human speech clearly without having to turn up the volume-ideal for news bulletins and documentaries.


Brightness refined for your room

On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This 4K OLED TV includes an embedded light sensor that optimizes picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view.


Sound tailored to your environment

Sound experience can change depending on your room environment. For example, curtains absorb sound, while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This 4K Ultra HD TV detects objects and reproduces sound that's enhanced and optimized to your room.


See how our beautiful design immerses you in the action

Our slim and simple one-slate design keeps you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously in any room environment.

Preserving the passion of the creators

To address color variations from the production process, this TV is ready to use Portrait Displays' high-performance CalMAN® auto-calibration software. This allows an unprecedented level of calibration and the ability to fine-tune adjustments simply not possible through conventional picture settings. It delivers high-fidelity color reproduction that's true to the original TV signal, and can even adapt to the subtlest changes in color that may occur over time. This TV is CalMAN®-ready, allowing customers to benefit from software used by visual creators in post-production quality-control workflows, further demonstrating our commitment to deliver pictures with professional-grade-color-calibrated accuracy in the home.

  • Watching TV from the sides is now as satisfying as from the center. Our self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colors consistent and true, wherever you're watching.
  • With pictures created by millions of individually controlled pixels, everything is sharp and clear on OLED. And with our X-Motion Clarity technology, even fast action stays smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimize blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high-speed scenes.
  • There are thousands of tones, shades and gradations of light in a sunset. Super Bit Mapping HDR reveals them. It creates smooth, natural 4K TV picture quality as you watch, without the "banding" that can occur on other TVs.
  • With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.
  • One database is used to clean the picture, reducing on-screen noise. The other is used to upscale the resolution, improving clarity. These two powerful image improvement databases work together, dynamically improving pixels in real time. Each database has tens of thousands of references, amassed from our experience creating content for TV and movies over the years.
  • Sound on conventional TVs with a speaker located below the screen is often out of sync with the picture. With our Acoustic Surface Audio, the screen is the speaker.

  • With a subwoofer integrated into the rear of the TV, you'll hear more dynamic, bass-heavy sound-ideal for action movies and music.

  • Our slim and simple one-slate design keeps you focused on the screen while blending harmoniously in any room environment.
  • Keeps you focused on the picture, not the television.
  • The direction of this versatile stand can be adjusted so your TV display won't disturb your viewing, even when used with a soundbar.
  • Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden so your television stays free of clutter and looks good from the front, the sides, and the back.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Electronics can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new electronics should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.
