Deep OLED blacks in harmony with exquisite style and sound
The BRAVIA FWD-55A8H Professional Display with advanced OLED technology brings you astonishing 4K HDR images with unprecedented clarity, contrast and detail.
Millions of individually controlled pixels accurately reproduce content, with Pixel Contrast Booster Technology ensuring bright highlights plus incredibly pure, deep blacks. Pictures are refined further by Sony’s power-packed X1 Ultimate processor that analyses and refines images for even more lifelike depth, detail and realism. Stunning OLED pictures are in harmony with rich, cinematic sound that comes from the right place on the screen, precisely aligning pictures and sound.
The super-slim one slate design concept brings the screen close to the edge of the display for a more immersive viewing experience without distractions, perfect for all environments.
The BRAVIA FWD-55A8H’s Pro mode allows quick and easy customisation to suit different environments. The Android platform lets you do more, with the display’s intuitive built-in software platform broadening control and customisation options even further. Creating attractive digital signage is simple, mixing and displaying media files and online content with no need for additional hardware. A wide range of APIs (Application Programming Interface) options enable remote control/monitoring and integration with external systems.
4K image resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels)
4K offers four times the detail of Full HD, with a resolution of over 8 million pixels
bringing extra clarity to corporate display, education and digital signage applications.
OLED with Pixel Contrast Booster
OLED technology brings you extraordinary contrast with even more fine detail in deep shadows and bright highlights. With Pixel Contrast Booster, colour and contrast are enhanced in bright areas for scenes full of lifelike hues, depth and texture plus the pure black contrast that only OLED can deliver.
Ultimate quality, whatever you’re watching
Twice as fast as our X1™ Extreme processor, the X1™ Ultimate processor analyses
and processes image data for incredibly lifelike 4K pictures bursting with depth and
detail. Lower resolution HD pictures are upscaled close to 4K by Sony’s 4K X-Reality™ PRO engine using a unique 4K database, while Object-based Super Resolution reproduces lifelike textures.
Even more real colour and contrast
Object-based HDR Remaster analyses and adjusts the colour of individual on-screen objects, reproducing greater depth and textures for more realistic pictures.
Wider colour with TRILUMINOS Display
The self-illuminating OLED panel keeps colours consistent and true from any viewing angle.
Clearer, brighter fast-moving scenes
Latest X-Motion Clarity™ technology keeps on-screen movement smooth and clear,
with minimised blur and no loss of brightness during high-speed scenes.
The display’s embedded light sensor optimises picture brightness to suit room
conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in darker conditions for a perfect view.
The right sound in the right place
Acoustic Multi-Audio technology incorporates tweeters into the TV frame, with
independently controlled amplifiers that let sound follow the action for a truly
Immersive big-screen experience
BRAVIA features a minimalist ‘one slate’ design with a thin bezel, ensuring a more
immersive big-screen viewing experience with fewer distractions.
