What's included in the box
Once you've seen the world in 4K Ultra High Definition, there's no looking back. With a Sony 4K Ultra HD TV, breathtaking natural details are depicted in richer, fuller color with even more stunning contrast. At four times the resolution of Full HD 1080p, the difference of 4K TV resolution is undeniable — and when accompanied by a powerful 65 watts of front-facing sound, it's quite simply the most immersive, highest resolution television experience possible.
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.
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.
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 X900, 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.
There's 3D, then there's 3D with 4K (3,840 x 2,160). Life-like 3D images emerge from the 4K screen screen with realism that makes your heart race. The level of detail is absolutely stunning—it's the closest thing to a 3D theater in your living room. Light, comfortable, passive 3D glasses offer superb image quality and a noticeable step above anything you've ever experienced at home.
Photos are better with 4K.
See more details in your DSLR photos (8MP+) with 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160). View, share and edit photo memories with PlayMemories Studio software and your PlayStation3 system on the TV screen. Scroll effortlessly through your image collection. Pinpoint images by date and time, smiles or location. Everything’s smooth and speedy, thanks to the immense processing power of the PlayStation3 system.10
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) resolution2.
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.
Go way beyond cable with builtin Wi-Fi

Twice the fun: 2 player games with no split screen
Say goodbye to split screen. Now you and a friend can both experience your own big-screen view of the action as you play nail-biting games on your PlayStation3 system. SimulView gaming presents two separate Full HD pictures: each player watches independently through light easy to wear optional Simulview glasses that don’t need batteries. There’s already a growing choice of SimulViewTM game titles available.

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.
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.
