View content at 16 times the resolution of 1080p with the Sony MASTER Z9G 98" Class HDR 8K UHD Smart LED TV. It has a 97.5" LED panel and incorporates Sony's X-Motion Clarity technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision compatibility provide a wide color gamut for compatible content.

The MASTER Z9G series has built-in Wi-Fi and Ethernet connectivity to allow access to the Google Play store, your favorite apps, and internet-based content via its Android operating system, plus content sharing and screen mirroring with your other compatible smart devices such as your smartphone or tablet. The Vewd web browser is also available for download through the Google Play store. With four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition video sources. A composite video input is also available for connecting legacy equipment, while three USB ports are onboard for connecting compatible multimedia peripherals like flash drives.

Content acquired via certain apps may require subscription to a service.

8K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate

The 8K HDR Picture Processor X1 Ultimate features real-time object-based rendering for detailed images and upscaling everything you watch to near-8K HDR quality.

8K X-Reality PRO & Object-Based Super Resolution

8K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution use an 8K database to help sharpen and refine images in real time to reveal additional detail.

Backlight Master Drive

Backlight Master Drive technology is designed to dynamically change the light levels in sections of the screen depending on the content to enhance contrast and brightness. Its calibrated beam design helps it accurately send light only where it is needed to provide more accurate contrast. Balancing the light output across the screen, dark scenes seem darker and bright scenes appear brighter.

Front-Facing Speakers for Immersive Audio

Four front-facing speakers across the chassis of the TV help create wide, authentic sound that seems to come from where the action is occurring. With the action and sound more precisely aligned, your viewing experience feels more immersive.

IMAX Enhanced

IMAX Enhanced certification designates that the MASTER Z9G meets certain audio and video performance criteria set by a committee of IMAX and DTS engineers and A/V technical specialists. These criteria include image, sound, scale, and content quality. Onboard IMAX calibrated modes are set and approved by Hollywood colorists to help provide enhanced picture and sound for HDR UHD content.

Dolby Vision Compatibility

Dolby Vision is an HDR solution designed to create an immersive cinematic experience with deep black levels and vibrant colors.

X-Wide Angle Technology

This technology helps provide vivid colors from nearly any angle.

X-Motion Clarity

X-Motion Clarity technology helps refine the on-screen action in real time with an enhanced refresh rate.


TRILUMINOS Display technology is engineered to map colors from a wide palette to faithfully reproduce every shade and hue.

8K HDR Super Bit Mapping

8K HDR Super Bit Mapping is designed to create additional shades and gradations of light for a smooth, natural image without color banding.

Hands-Free Control

With hands-free voice search powered by Android TV and the built-in Google Assistant, just say, "Hey Google" to ask the TV questions, control your compatible smart home devices, and access a variety of apps and services. You can also cast your favorite compatible apps with Chromecast built-in, or download apps from the Google Play store, including YouTube, Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, Spotify, and more.

Additional Smart Home Compatibility

With your Google Home ecosystem and Amazon Alexa compatibility, you can voice-control the TV and ask it to do things like cast and control videos from YouTube or change the volume. Similar support for Apple HomeKit, AirPlay 2, and Siri is scheduled to be made available via a future firmware update.

Netflix Calibrated Mode

This mode was developed so you could enjoy Netflix originals as the creator intended.

Is this tv brighter than the Vizio P Quantum X?

Is this tv brighter than the Vizio P Quantum X?
Asked by: Albert
Hard to say. The Vizio peak brightness in HDR mode is very bright. SONY offers the best image quality overall of the two and has good side viewing angles where the Vizio does not.
