4K ULTRA HD TV - THE ULTIMATE RESOLUTION
With an astonishing screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the Sony KD49X8505B is at the cutting edge of TV technology. This resolution is exactly four times greater than the more conventional 1920 x 1080 Full HD TVs and it's a difference you can see - big time! The gain in resolution is especially noticeable and, even when close up to the screen, the detail and realism is awesome. As 4K streaming becomes ever more available, including on popular TV series streamed over the Internet, the benefits are now clearer than ever. Yet, even with other resolutions, the KD49X8505B takes advantage of Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology to upscale the images to 4K - making the most of every format.
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display. This has been specially developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour. In particular you'll notice that skin shades appear far more natural. This Sony is also fitted with Motionflow XR 200Hz. This high quality Motionflow system works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, without the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR200 makes a significant difference.
Passive 3D TV is simpler than the active system but, despite this, in many ways it's superior. For a start, passive 3D TV is considered more comfortable to watch with less flicker. Another technical advantage includes brighter images. Then there's the cost and convenience consideration to take into account. The glasses are much cheaper and also considerably lighter to wear. The lack of batteries onboard also means they don't have to be recharged.
IMPROVED SOUND QUALITY
Although no match for a separates home cinema system, the Sony KD49X8505B's built-in audio system is above the class average. This is thanks to using bass reflex speakers that are designed to offer a deeper, fuller sound. With a wider frequency response, this Sony TV avoids the tinny sound that can afflict flat TVs. S-Force Front Surround gives an added dimension to the sound with projection to match the 3D pictures. The S-Master 20 watt amplifier ensures it can fill a large room with sound, too.
YOUR SMARTPHONE DISPLAY ON THE BIG SCREEN IN AN INSTANT WITH SCREEN MIRRORING
Screen Mirroring lets you watch what's on your mobile or tablet, on the big screen - wirelessly. All you need do is swipe your NFC one-touch enabled smartphone against the supplied one-touch remote and the content is instantly transferred to the big screen. Whether its photos, videos or app content, big screen entertainment is just a swipe away.
MASSIVE RANGE OF SMART CONTENT WITH THE SONY ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK
At the heart of the Sony KD49X8505B's networking ability is the Sony Entertainment Network. This gives access to a massive range of apps, including the highly popular YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm, Twitter, Facebook and many more. In addition to an application based browser for the most well known sites, the KD49X8505 also comes with Opera web browser for full Internet access (display of embedded video restricted). This Sony TV is also DLNA compliant meaning that you can stream data from your laptop, PC or NAS drive device. Even better, streaming from your home network can be via Ethernet cable or the built-in Wi-Fi connection. On top of all this, this 4K wonder comes with a built-in camera and is ready for Skype calls. Thanks to smartphone apps for iPhone or Android, you can take control of the Sony with your phone's comprehensive touch screen.
