The secret behind Sony 4K HDR
4K High Dynamic Range
High Dynamic Range is the new standard for picture quality, offering a much wider range of colour, contrast and clarity. A Sony 4K HDR TV improves the picture even further, using technologies like 4K X-Reality PRO™, X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO and TRILUMINOS Display™ to reveal previously unavailable levels of realism, making you really feel a part of the scene.
Unrivalled contrast – deeper black, brighter lights.
Backlight Master Drive™
The Backlight Master Drive™ can display an unprecedented dynamic range with incredibly deep black and dazzling lights, powered by the 4K HDR Processor X1™ Extreme. This backlight system has an ultra-dense LED structure, a unique local dimming algorithm and optical design.
Light where it’s needed
Calibrated beam LED design
The Backlight Master Drive™ has a unique design which gathers LED lights in one spot, reducing light diffusion and the flare effect that can be seen on other full-array LED TVs. It ensures that each LED emits a straight beam for a clear picture which display vivid lights and dark blacks.
Amazingly bright, incredibly slim
Slim Backlight Drive+
Our innovative Slim Backlight Drive+ cleverly guides light to where it’s needed most on screen. It provides exceptional brightness and deeper blacks than a conventional full-array LED TV in an ultra slim design.
How the Slim Backlight Drive+ works
The dual layer edge backlighting structure directs light where its needed
The Slim Backlight Drive+ has two layers of light guide plates, allowing precise local dimming control and improving quality over a full-array LED backlight. Our unique quad-edge LED structure and X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO backlighting algorithm brings superior brightness and beautiful contrast from an incredibly slim form.

Capturing the full range of dark and light
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™
By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO™ reveals a brightness range three times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV, and it enhances any source to near HDR quality with a wider range of brightness.
Superior technology, incredible contrast
With a choice of backlight technology and the magic of X-tended Dynamic Range™ PRO, our televisions fill every scene with extraordinary contrast for true-to-life viewing.
Optimising brightness, frame by frame
4K Processor X1™ with Dynamic Contrast Enhancer
4K TVs with the 4K Processor X1 dramatically improve the brightness range, even without X-tended Dynamic Range PRO. This is thanks to Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, which optimises the range of brightness frame by frame according to what’s happening on screen.
Experience a greater range of brightness
With the 4K Processor X1 chip you'll see more bright and more black in every picture
High Dynamic Range – be ready for the future
Like 4K, High Dynamic Range (HDR) represents a huge step forward in picture quality. While current video standards are based on CRT TVs with low brightness capabilities, HDR signals carry much more brightness information. So HDR-ready TVs can display greater contrast, a wider colour spectrum, and improved detail, for exceptional clarity across the screen.
