The Sony KDL-65S990A is designed for cinematic viewing with its curved 65" 1080p display. This television features Sony X-Reality Pro image processing for color and contrast optimization. This TV uses Sony's Dynamic Edge LED backlight with local dimming to add depth to shadow detail and black levels. Sony's Motionflow technology is also onboard, which reduces distortion on fast-moving images, commonly seen in video games and televised sporting events. This TV can access Sony's Entertainment Network and has built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi for streaming music and movies. Sony's Entertainment Network interface also has an Opera web browser for viewing and exploring Internet pages and a conditional promotion for Netflix and Hulu Plus streaming. Android and iOS users can download the Sony TV SideView app from their respective app stores and control this television from a smartphone or tablet.
This TV includes 4 pairs of 3D glasses and supports passive 3D technology, which means that batteries are not required for 3D viewing. With one component video and four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition sources. The component video input also acts as a hybrid port, which allows you to connect an additional composite video source. In addition to a standard remote control, this TV also includes a second one-touch remote for instant content sharing between the display and a mobile device.
For audio, Sony's S-Force virtual surround technology works with the curved 40 watt 4 channel speaker system of this TV to simulate a 5.1 speaker environment. This technology is designed to add a sense of depth to audio and widen the soundstage for listeners who are sitting off-center. Even with built-in surround simulation, you have the option of using the TV's optical output to connect to a traditional surround sound audio system.
Sony X-Reality PRO Picture Engine
Sony's X-Reality PRO picture engine is designed to clean and refine images. This feature optimizes colors, contrast, and is engineered to bring lower resolution content to near HD quality.
Triluminos Display Technology
Triluminos technology is designed to add depth to images and produce life-like natural shades and colors. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are optimized, so landscapes and seascapes look vivid and faces appear natural.
Dynamic Edge LED Backlighting
Dynamic Edge LED Backlighting uses local dimming, which delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas to produce a life-like picture.
Motionflow XR 480 Technology
Motionflow XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates. This technology is designed to smooth out the image and minimize distortion on fast-moving content to produce clearer and natural movement.
