Image Improving Features
Quattron Color Technology
Quattron color technology delivers a billion more colors, so you get brighter yellows, deeper blues and richer golds. By adding two million yellow subpixels, Quattron creates a more realistic picture with greater detail and brightness, without sacrificing color accuracy.
AQUOS 1080p LED Display
The AQUOS 1080p LED Display with advanced pixel structure uses photo-alignment technology to let more light through in bright scenes and shut more light out in dark scenes. The display's 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio ensures you'll be able to see the difference.
Super Bright Technology
Super Bright technology features a high-brightness panel combined with an intelligent contrast engine that constantly analyzes the signal and enhances the brightness of the bright objects on the screen, while maintaining the black levels on the rest of the screen. The result is a brighter and more contrasted picture.
