Clarity quadrupled - That's right-four times clearer than Full HD 1080p. Get acquainted with the highest resolution picture Sony has ever produced on a TV. With four times more resolution than Full HD, the 4K Ultra HD screen contains over 8 million individual pixels (3,840 x 2,160). Advanced picture processing ensures that every one of those pixels displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail.
Everything enhanced - Suddenly, everything looks better. Now even old movies and smartphone video clips are enhanced with stunning results. The new 4K X-Reality PRO chip enhances HD (or lower resolution) images by analyzing and refining images with beautifully natural detail and astounding color. 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.
More brilliant color than ever before - Spoil yourself with the widest color spectrum we've ever offered on a television. Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors- just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It's all thanks to a new TRILUMINOS display that gives images a heightened sense of depth.
Sound Innovation - These aren't the TV speakers you're used to. Unique to Sony TVs, Magnetic Fluid Speaker technology allows a thinner, more efficient loudspeaker that offers faithful reproduction of high-fidelity sound. The frontfacing speaker system directs sound right at you with 65 watts of power. S-Force Front Surround 3D simulates 5.1 sound, with an enlarged sweet spot that everyone in the room can enjoy.
The difference is dynamic. - It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture.
Movies in 4K Ultra HD - Get the most out of your 4K Ultra HD TV with feature films in true 4K resolution only from Sony. The 4K Media Player (sold separately) comes preloaded with 10 feature films and video shorts. Coming soon is the Sony 4K network video service offering access to a library of 4K movies and TV show titles9 - Available 2013.
Lifelike motion. - Watch the sprinter break off the blocks and race smoothly as the camera follows him from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 960 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement.
Your smartphone, now on TV - Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the X900A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. 1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally "mirror" what's seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it's charging from the TV. 2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV. 3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the onetouch remote. You'll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone's screen on the TV.
Go way beyond cable with built-in Wi-Fi - Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more.

Light, comfortable, passive 3D glasses offer superb image quality and a noticeable step above anything you've ever experienced at home.
