Taking 4K to the next level with HDR, the Sony KD55XD8599 makes pictures more believable than ever.
4K X1 processor for sublime picture quality
With its UHD screen resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels, the Sony KD55XD8599 is ready for the 4K revolution. Four times more detailed than Full HD, the gain in resolution is clearly visible and, even close up, the detail and realism are awesome. Thanks to Sony's X-Reality PRO 4K technology, standard FHD images can be upscaled to near UHD quality, giving the sharpest detail possible from your Blu-rays and other FHD sources.
HDR - High Dynamic Range
Taking 4K UHD one stage further, this Sony 55 inch TV is now compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast.
Triluminos display and Motionflow XR1000Hz
As well as 4K, this Sony TV also boasts a Triluminos display; developed to produce truer, deeper and more natural shades of colour, with skin shades appearing far more natural. It's also fitted with Motionflow XR 1000Hz, which works especially well with fast moving action, such as sports events, removing the blur you can see with standard TVs. From a Hollywood blockbuster to a Formula One race, XR1000 makes a significant difference.
Offering the slick interaction of the best smartphones, Android TV is one of the smartest content managers and providers to date. Boasting features such as Google Cast, Google Play and Voice Search, this Sony is part TV and part giant smartphone.
Voice Search and Content Bar for effortless searching
Even with such a massive range of content, finding what you want is always easy. Voice Search means you simply say what you're looking for and let Android TV find it for you. The unobtrusive content bar quickly lets you find the movie, TV show or video you're after. Call up the Content bar and you can keep watching, while you scan through live TV, on demand, downloaded TV shows and more.
Stream PlayStation games straight to your TV
Play selected PlayStation 3 games directly through the TV - without a console! PlayStation Now brings streaming technology to the immersive world of PlayStation gaming. Just pair a DUALSHOCK 4 controller with the TV and you're ready to play with the same speed and responsiveness as a console.
Squeezing more sound from the flatscreen TV
Although flatscreen TVs have their limits and can never match a soundbar or sound base, the Sony KD55XD8599 packs in some technology that can certainly make the most of the space limitations. DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) restores the natural sound from compressed audio, giving it a more spacious and lifelike balance. ClearAudio+ and ClearPhase systems work to create an immersive sound that's also as natural as possible.
IR Blaster for complete control
The supplied IR (Infra-Red) Blaster lets you control other devices in your home from your Sony TV remote. You can use it to control your set-top box - such as Sky, Virgin or Humax - with the TV remote controller, for single remote convenience.
