BRAVIA KD85ZH8BU (2020) 85 inch 8K HDR Full Array LED TV with Android TV
The KD85ZH8 is part of the flagship 2020 ZH8 series TVs bringing together all the best technologies available from Sony and providing them all in one package, Including 8K resolution and superior image processing all powered by the X1 Ultimate Processor. Delivering the best picture quality seen on a Sony LED TV to date including Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG HDR Standards.
Sony BRAVIA KD85ZH8 8K HDR TV
8K resolution brings 4 times the detail and clarity than even 4K. But why 8K when there are currently only a few 4K & 8K sources? The ZH8 features Sonys 8K X-Reality PRO processing that takes upscaling to a whole new level by sharpening the image in real time utilising a dual database of 8K resolution images for reference. This all happens seamlessly without any configuration needed resulting in near 8K quality on every source that is fed to the TV. So no matter what you are watching you can still benefit from the wealth of technologies this TV has to offer.
Sound performance is not compromised and a cavity remains to ensure perfect acoustics for your living room. The Sony BRAVIA KD85ZH8 8K TV improves on this further by now including Acoustic Multi-Audio. The TV now includes 4 frame tweeters that vibrate the frame to produce crisp and detailed mid to high frequencies and a dedicated subwoofer in the rear of the TV which helps to produce a deeper and fuller sound. Simply put the sound is clearer and higher quality than ever before while still supporting HiRes Audio which encompasses all audio played back using higher sampling rates than those used in CD's closer to the original recording along with full Dolby Atmos object based audio support for an incredibly immersive sound experience whether its your favourite music or films.
This TV features Sony's new Full Array LED with 8K X-tended Dynamic Range PRO back-lighting technology which is a grid of LEDs behind the pixel layer of the screen as opposed to standard Edge lighting. The benefit of having this array of LEDs is that different areas of the screen can change brightness independently from each other allowing darker and lighter parts of a scene to be illuminated accurately which preserves more detail and improves colour accuracy across the whole image without compromises. This is called 'Full Array Local Dimming'.
Sony has also included their unrivalled X-Motion Clarity. A technology dedicated to offering considerably smooth motion of moving objects. Motion processing in the past has been known to introduce a slight blur to reduce the judder effect although this isn't seen with X-Motion Clarity, the object in motion stays crisp at all times without any trailing after image or stutter. Perfect for Sports and fast paced action.
With all this technology housed into one stunning unit, you want to make sure you get the longevity that you would expect from a Sony product. That is why this Sony BRAVIA KD85ZH8 8K TV comes with a full 5 years guarantee that covers parts, labour and even home visits.
Sony 8K TV With X1 Ultimate
The X1 Ultimate Processor now analyses every single object on screen with Object-based Super Resolution. This enhances the resolution where possible on every recognised object giving exceptional quality and detail.
In addition to this the X1 Ultimate Processor includes Sony's Object-based HDR Remaster technology which analyses the colour of the objects on screen and the contrast is adjusted to provide a more deeper true to life image.
Sony has included Dual database processing with the X1 Ultimate which when upscaling compares the image on screen with known high resolution images helping the give that extra bit of sharpness and clarity wherever possible on any content below 8K.
The X1 Ultimate processor is the missing link from a good to an exceptional television experience. The Sony 8K X1 Ultimate analyses every signal received to the TV to understand what level of processing is required to the picture. So a RAW 8K Ultra HD signal will be handled differently to Netflix 4K signal to a Sky HD signal to a USB video signal.
TRILUMINOS brings more lifelike colour and opening the spectrum to benefits of Sony 8K resolution. Taking the technology a step further is the Precision Colour Mapping process which enhances the blue shades of colour ensuring the full range of the colour gamut is produced.
