Sony 55" 4K Ultra HD 3D LED LCD SMART TV


Code: KD-55X8500C

Make your first 4K experience one you'll never forget with a Sony X8500B series 4K Ultra HD TV. With industry leading 4K up-scaling and TRILUMINOS colour, your favourite films and TV shows have never looked this good.

  • 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160)
  • 4K X-Reality Pro Up-scaling
  • TRILUMINOS Display
  • Motionflow XR 200
  • Smart TV with Built-in WiFi
  • 3D (2x glasses included)

* 4K:3,840 x 2,160 pixels

Four times the detail of Full HD

See more on TV than ever before with over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160) compared to about 2 million (1,920 x 1,080) on your current HDTV1. Advanced picture processing also ensures that each of those pixels displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail. It's the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV.

Unrivalled up-scaling

Suddenly, everything looks better. Sony's unique 4K TVs upscale your favorite TV shows, DVDs and Blu-ray™ movies – even YouTube®clips and smartphone videos – for higher quality, stunning results. The new 4K X-Reality™ PRO chip enhances HD (and lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding colour. The latest Reality Creation database and Super Resolution processing breathes new life into everything you see with phenomenal 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution.

Everything is more colourful

TRILUMINOS is an exclusive Sony technology that is capable of displaying more colour than regular LED TVs. Like an artist with more colour on his pallet, TRILUMINOUS can reproduce real life with greater accuracy. Thanks to a combination of exclusive Sony technologies, Sony can produce colours that conventional LED TVs simply can’t reproduce. Particularly reds and greens. To see the difference TRILUMINOS makes, try downloading the sample image below, save it to a USB stick and ask to see it on TVs in store. The difference will be obvious. More natural and more lifelike.
