The A1 is a stunning step forward in home entertainment. An astonishingly thin OLED panel, pin-sharp 4K UHD resolution, and a glorious HDR colour-scape combine for a simply awe-inspiring picture, boosted by Sony's TRILUMINOS display. A genuine innovation, Sony's Acousic Surface technology uses the screen itself as the speaker to achieve perfect unity between sound and vision. Sony's suite of Smart features on the Android platform opens up a wealth of extraordinary online content, and its One Slate design assures a 'floating' look that allows you to bask, distraction-free, in the splendour of this amazing-looking and remarkable-sounding screen.

Impeccable 4K OLED Screen
At the forefront of modern audio-visual technology, the Organic LED display has broken new ground in picture detail. Unlike regular LED screens, this doesn’t have a backlight, meaning that each pixel is self-illuminating. This allows every speck of light to control its own luminescence for true depth and colour gradation. So, you’ll experience blacker blacks, whiter whites, and a more lustrous display. With 8 million of these pixels, this 4K OLED set is a majesty to behold, achieving impeccable deep blacks, dark shadows and scintillating colours, all within a blur-free image that looks just as stunning from any angle.

Game-changing OLED HDR
Sony are one of the forerunners of colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR with a staggering 14-bit colour depth. This means that there are over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and show shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. Usually, studios are forced to dilute the colour of their shows and films to fit on our TVs. Now, HDR screens like the A1 can channel content from studio-to-living room with the same precision and utterly otherworldly hues. Super Bit Mapping™ technology delivers up to 64 times more levels of colour for beautifully smooth tone gradation (based on an 8 bit signal capable of 256 levels of colour and a 14 bit signal capable of 16,384 levels of colour). With such exceptional HDR, this model almost matches real-life, bringing you closer to your shows than ever before.

Rich, Ravishing 4K
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

Up-Scaling 4K X-Reality PRO
Enhance everything you watch on your Sony Bravia TV with 4K X-Reality PRO and the X1 Extreme 4K HDR processor. Thanks to these unique technologies from Sony, you can get closer to reality. After analysing each pixel and comparing patterns, the system restores detail lost in compression and transmission. The system also reduces noise and reproduces optimum contrast, colour and sharpness. The result is that you experience stunning picture quality with better clarity, for anything you watch. The X1 Extreme Processor drives the detail of a stunning 4K HDR picture. It has 40% more real-time image processing than the renowned X1, for a sensational level of clarity, and a realism that will take your breath away.

Delightful TRILUMINOS Display
Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display Technology expands the range of colours of that you see on more conventional LED displays, injecting images with more lustre. The eye-popping picture is treated with deeper reds, more natural greens and sharper blues, giving your shows and films a richer palate. Combined with image-deepening HDR, this tech will make your viewing simply extraordinary.

Acoustic Surface
A genuine innovation in home entertainment, the A1 completely re-imagines the delivery of sound. Four specially-designed actuators in the back panel utilise the entire screen as an acoustic surface. The screen is the speaker. This means sounds emanate accurately from their point of origin within the image, while the lack of speaker tech cuts down on bulk within the frame, enabling the sleekest, most minimal design. An integrated subwoofer hidden in the back panel delivers powerful bass for stimulating realism. This radical redesign of TV audio achieves stunning sound quality, perfectly harmonising sound and visuals.

Super-Smart Android
Your Smart TV has just got smarter with Android. Developed by Google, you'll be able to enjoy seamless entertainment, intelligent search and the latest apps from the likes of Google Play, Netflix, Amazon Prime and Youtube. All the personalisation, intelligence and entertainment of your Smartphone or tablet can be easily viewed on the Sony TV too, taking your viewing experience to the next level. Enjoy built-in Chromecast, letting you beam content from your smartphone straight to the big screen, Voice Search and the hundreds of apps. This latest version has been refined for even easier, intuitive interaction with your favourite content, and allows you to expand app storage space onto a USB device (sold separately).*

Youview Catch-Up
In addition to a wealth of online entertainment, this set comes with built-in YouView. The seven day scroll back TV guide brings together catch up TV from across BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, 4oD and Demand 5**. You can also enjoy over 70 live TV channels and radio stations for free, such as BBC 1 & 2, ITV, Channel 4, E4, Channel 5, 5 USA, ITV 2 and Dave.

One Slate Design
The A1 is as beautifully designed as its picture's stunning visuals. One Slate design means image without distraction. A 'stand-less' body and the lack of conventional speakers means nothing distracts you from the amazing on-screen visuals, while a super-slim bezel maximises the viewing area, and cables are neatly hidden from view in the back cover. The result is a screen that appears to 'float', leaving only the magnificence of the picture.

Perfect partners
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
Take a look at our full range of soundbars.

Don't forget...
If you want to connect your TV to a blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or soundbase then you'll need a HDMI cable.
