Top 3 features:
See the beauty with more colour, contrast and clarity
Our powerful processor uses advanced algorithms to cut noise and boost detail. With an even clearer 4K signal, everything you watch is closer to 4K resolution, full of life-like colour and contrast
Clear multidimensional sound
Feel surrounded by clear, high quality sound from multiple dimensions, putting you right there inside the scene.
X-Balanced Speaker is available on TVs 55" and above
Refined design matches your space
The narrow bezel gives the TV a refined look that blends harmoniously in any contemporary environment
Discrete Metal Blade Stand
Our noise less stand sits discretely on a shelf and won't compromise your viewing experience.
Super resolution, whatever you’re watching
See glorious 4K pictures, rich with real world detail and texture, exclusively powered by our 4K HDR processor X1.
Images filmed in 2K and even Full HD are upscaled close to 4K resolution by 4K X-Reality PRO using a unique 4K database.
Reproduces a wider, more precise range of colours
By widening the colour spectrum, TRILUMINOS powered by our X1 processors reproduces more colours than a conventional television. It analyses and processes data in every image to make colours even more natural and precise so pictures are closer than ever to real life.
Making colour and contrast more real
Object-based HDR remaster
With Object-based HDR remaster, the color in individual objects on screen is analyzed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve. Because objects are remastered individually, this TV can reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures.
Making fast-moving scenes bright and clear
On some screens, sports and fast action scenes can seem to go by in a blur. Our latest X-Motion Clarity technology keeps everything smooth, bright and clear. Each ‘blink’ is individually controlled and its duration optimised, while brightness is boosted when needed, so you won’t miss a thing.
Sound flows around you with Dolby Atmos
Be surrounded by sound as if you are right there in the scene. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides so you can hear objects moving overhead with more realism for a truly multi-dimensional experience.
Hear high quality sound
Designed to complement the sound quality and slimness of the TV with its unique new shape, our X-Balanced Speaker drives movies and music with clear sound.
This feature is available on TVs larger than 55".
Enjoy studio quality with Netflix Calibrated Mode
This mode was specially developed to enjoy Netflix originals and reproduce the same picture quality on a TV as on a studio evaluation master. With Netflix Calibrated Mode, the creator's vision and intent is faithfully preserved.
Works with Apple AirPlay / Apple HomeKit
With Apple AirPlay, you can stream video and audio to your television right from your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Watch movies and shows from Apple TV app, your favourite apps, or even Safari. Share your photos with everyone in the room.
Easy control with smart remote
Connect set top boxes and other devices via HDMI to this 4K HDR TV and control them all using one smart commander. A slimmer, more rounded design with built-in voice control microphone and enhanced button layout makes it really easy to use too.
Embrace the thrills of the cinema
Enjoy cinematic thrills at home. Dolby Vision brings scenes vividly to life for authentic viewing, while Dolby Atmos fills the room with immersive surround sound.
Picture Processor X1 4K HDR
With unmatched processing power, the Picture Processor X1 4K HDR detects hundreds of different objects on screen and intelligently enhances brightness, detail and colour so everything you watch is clear, bright and incredibly realistic.
Every movement, beautifully clear with X-Motion Clarity
Our X-Motion Clarity technology keeps fast action smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimise blur. Even during high speed scenes, pictures stay true with no loss in brightness.
Rediscover every detail with 4K X-Reality PRO
With 4K X-Reality PRO, every image is upscaled closer to true 4K quality for remarkable clarity. Images are sharpened and refined in real time, revealing extra detail in the books and architecture of the library.
Discover thrilling 4K HDR entertainment
This TV brings you the excitement of movies and games in 4K HDR. It handles a variety of HDR formats, including HDR10, Hybrid Log-Gamma and Dolby Vision
Easily connect to your favourite compatible devices

Motionflow XR keeps the action smooth: 400Hz
Enjoy smooth and sharp details even in fast-moving sequences with Motionflow XR. This innovative technology creates and inserts extra frames between the original ones. It compares key visual factors on successive frames, then calculates the split second of missing action in the sequences. Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.

Preserving the passion of the creators
To address colour variations from the production process, this TV is ready to use Portrait Displays’ high-performance CalMAN auto-calibration software. This allows an unprecedented level of calibration and the ability to fine tune adjustments simply not possible through conventional picture settings. It delivers high-fidelity colour reproduction that's true to the original TV signal and can even adapt to the subtlest changes in colour that may occur over time. This TV is CalMAN ready, allowing customers to benefit from software used by visual creators in post-production, quality-control workflows, further demonstrating our commitment to deliver pictures with professional-grade colour calibrated accuracy in the home.
