SHS The Score - A8 OLED 4K TV

SHS The Score - A8 OLED 4K TV

Recommended For: Those who seek OLED picture-perfection from any angle. 

For those wanting the latest and greatest in their home entertainment, the leap into OLED screen technology is an inevitable next step. In an OLED TV, light and colour are combined and outputted from a single source. This means a pixel can create and turn off its own light, resulting in brighter colour and the blackest blacks.

4K and HDR benefit here as the image created is hyper-realistic and will handle contrast between light and dark colours much better than a conventional LED. Differentiation between similar colours is made better too, allowing you to see details that were previously hidden when viewed on a conventional TV.

The A8 has been fitted with an Adjustable Height Stand making it easy to accommodate a sound bar underneath the TV without encroaching on the bottom of the screen. 

Choose between a 55” or 65” screen to suit the size & layout of your room. Read our handy blog on choosing the right screen size for your room here.

SHS Top Sony A8 Features (Explained)

SHS Top Sony A8 Features (Explained)

4K HDR OLED TV: OLED screens ensure all colour output is extremely vivid and blacks are even darker as the luminosity of each LED can be tailored exactly to the needs of the pixel they are lighting. 4K and HDR content is even more vivid and detailed when viewed on an OLED TV.

Acoustic Surface Audio - The sound emanates from the screen itself with two actuators vibrating the TV imperceptibly and a pair of subwoofers providing deep bass and a more dynamic sound overall. 

Sony X1 Ultimate HDR Processor: Built on the success of Sony’s class-leading X1 Processor, the X1 Ultimate takes image processing to the next level. The X1 will render each object on screen separately to ensure the picture is clear and colour realistic, rather than rendering each frame as a whole. For example, a helicopter flying across the screen is processed separately to the blue sky behind it, minimising blur and boosting colour clarity and contrast.  

Smart Features: Access all your favourite entertainment in record time with Android TV, featuring Google Play Store and Chromecast. A separate processor enables all Sony TVs to launch apps, such as Netflix, 3 times faster than a conventional smart television. Works with Apple Homekit and Airplay. 

Netflix Calibrated Mode:  This preset can be activated to ensure the best range of picture settings are automatically selected when viewing Netflix Original Content.

4K X-Reality Pro: The XH81 X1 Ultimate Processor will upscale pixels in any image to bring them closer to true 4K definition. This is achieved through image noise reduction techniques and AI detail enhancement.

Dolby Vision Atmos: The A8 will perfectly pass through Atmos recorded content via e-ARC into a connected soundbar and Dolby Vision quality picture from connected devices.

Pixel Contrast Booster: Both colour and contrast are enhanced in brighter areas of the screen to add depth and a greater number of colour hues and shades. 

X-tended Dynamic Range PRO: The luminosity of the A8’s OLEDs has been heightened to give a brightness range that’s 3x wider than standard TV, improving colour and contrast. 

X-Motion Clarity for OLED: X-Motion Clarity technology improves illuminance and optimises the duration of each frame to make the picture smoother, brighter and blur free.

IMAX Enhanced: Content that has been specially formatted for IMAX theatres will play as intended through the A8, giving you deeper bass, dynamic audio range, image grain reduction and a wider viewing scope.

X-Wide Angle: Image brightness and contrast won't dim or change even when viewed from side on, making the A8 perfect for positioning in a corner or to the side of the viewing audience.
