Videophiles love OLED TVs for their striking picture contrast and vibrant colors. Sony's Pixel Contrast Booster takes that a step further by enhancing color and contrast in bright areas, creating scenes full of lifelike shades and hues, as well as a greater sense of depth. This feature especially benefits HDR content.
Sony's X1 Ultimate Processor Brings out the Best in OLED -
Sony isn't the only company selling OLED TVs, but it's the only one that employs Sony's unmatched video processing. The X1™ Ultimate is the same advanced processor that Sony uses in their 8K TVs. Its two main tasks are reducing the compression noise common in streamed video and lower-resolution sources, and upscaling every source to near 4K/HDR quality. Picture quality with 4K streamed content and Ultra HD Blu-ray is spectacular, of course, but you'll be equally amazed at how detailed your HD and lower-res sources look.

Sound and picture in harmony — the screen is the speaker -
Instead of using typical tiny speakers, the XBR-55A8H uses the entire screen to generate sound. Sony's Acoustic Surface™ technology uses actuators on the back to send vibrations through the screen to produce clear audio. Sounds are localized to what's happening on screen — dialogue actually seems to come from the mouths of the characters.
