An OLED screen that looks almost as good off as on, plus an innovative sound system you can't see - the Sony KD55A1 delivers tomorrow's technology today.

OLED - self-illuminating pixels for the ultimate picture quality

Backlighting technology is a thing of the past with OLED. Instead of using various arrays of LEDs to light an LCD display, OLED uses over eight million self-illuminating pixels for sensational image quality. With self-illuminating pixels you get outstanding contrast. Blacks are far deeper than LED displays and corresponding whites much brighter. For the ultimate in realism, OLED is where it's at.

Ultimate picture quality with X1 Extreme processor - whatever the source
Sony's newly developed X1 Extreme processor has an impressive 40% more real-time processing than the already high-performing X1. What's more, this processor is smart enough the know the difference between a 4K UHD Blu-ray, Netflix 4K and USB streaming, to deliver the best possible image quality, whatever the source.

Highly advanced HDR
Object-Based HDR remaster analyses images and enhances both colour and textures for extraordinary realism and depth. Super Bit Mapping 4K HDR further enhances this by eliminating the 'banding' that can be seen on inferior TVs as the tone and shade gradually change. Now a sunset looks just like a true sunset rather than a graduated approximation.

Hear crystal-clear sound without seeing any speakers
Sony's OLED doesn't use conventional speakers, it simply makes the screen move with the sound! By using twin actuators at the rear of the screen, the whole surface acts as one, cohesive speaker. As well as improving the looks, it also means the sound is more accurately located to the image, giving more believable dialogue sync.

Powerful bass from built-in subwoofer
For the deepest bass notes, the Sony's screen gets a little help from a built-in subwoofer. Cleverly hidden in the rear support stand, the subwoofer provides extra punch for action movies and soundtracks when called on.

Be immersed by the picture. Just the picture
Take a look at the front of this Sony 55" OLED TV and you'll see no stand, no speakers and not even a 'Sony' badge. All you see is a finely framed screen, so you can concentrate on the class-leading picture quality with no distractions.

Multi-purpose stand
Supporting the screen is an ingenious pivoting stand design. Inside the stand is not only the subwoofer bass speaker but also all the connection sockets. Once connected, a flush fabric cover sits over the entire section, giving a clean, clutter free appearance that's, almost, as smart as the front. If you'd rather wall mount the TV, then simply fold the stand flat against the rear of the TV and hang it up.

Android TV
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 GoogleCast, 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.

The best in vision, sound and style - the Sony KD55A1 has it all.

Motion Processing
Motionflow XR
Manufacturers now use their own measurements so can not necessarily be compared between brands. Examples include LG - Motion Clarity Index (MCI), Samsung - Clear Motion rate (CMR), Philips - Perfect Motion Rate (PMR), Sony - Motionflow XR and Panasonic - BLS (Back Light Scanning). All these figures are twice or more than the traditional 100Hz/200Hz refresh rate figures. No abbreviation indicates traditional measurement. Plasmas generally use a 600Hz sub-field refresh rate.
LED Backlight
No
Does the TV have LED backlighting and what type is used? Full Array LED is generally agreed to be the highest spec and offers very even lighting and slim depth. Edge LED keeps a slim depth but relies on more processing for even lighting. Direct LED is the most basic and has the deepest depth. A simple Y means the LED type is unspecified at present.
3D TV

Local Dimming
Yes - Pixel(OLED)
Full Local Dimming or Full Array Local Dimming is available on top spec LED screens with Full Array LED backlighting. This allows for pockets or zones on the screen to be individually dimmed, giving greatly improved contrast between light and dark images. Edge and Direct Local Dimming gives some of the benefits of Full Local Dimming but not usually to the same standard. OLED offers the best results with individual pixel dimming.

By using a curved screen the viewing experience is more natural and everyone in the room gets to see the benefits of a superior viewing angle.
