Enjoy compatible movies and online content with enhanced black levels at four times the resolution of 1080p with the Sony A8H 65" Class HDR 4K UHD Smart OLED TV. It has a 64.5" OLED display and incorporates Sony's X-Motion Clarity technology to digitally enhance fast-moving images to reduce blur. HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision compatibility offer a wide color gamut and enhanced brightness and contrast to provide vibrant, lifelike images for compatible content.

The A8H 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 TV operating system, plus content sharing and screen mirroring via Chromecast built-in 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 and enables access to standard websites. With four HDMI inputs, there are multiple options for connecting high-definition video sources, such as a Blu-ray player, cable/satellite box, and gaming console. 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, enabling computer-free multimedia playback.

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

Picture Processor X1 Ultimate

With enhanced processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate is designed to analyze content to bring out the TV's high contrast ratio with pure blacks, peak brightness, and natural colors. Object-based HDR remastering happens in real time to detect hundreds of individual objects on-screen and intelligently upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality.

Pixel Contrast Booster

Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, and the Pixel Contrast Booster helps augment color and contrast in bright areas to help create lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture, and the pure black contrast of OLED technology.

Acoustic Surface Audio

With Acoustic Surface Audio, sound comes to you directly from the entire screen, helping to create an immersive, multidimensional audio experience. The woofer integrated into the rear of the TV helps provide more dynamic, bass-heavy sound for action movies and music.

Voice Control with the Google Assistant

The A8H series has the Google Assistant built-in, enabling you to search for your favorite movies, get answers on the screen, control the TV and your compatible smart home devices, all with your voice. Press the Google Assistant button on the remote control to ask for sports scores and the weather or access many of the apps and services you already use. You can also cast your favorite apps with Chromecast built-in or enjoy a range of apps from the Google Play store, including YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, and more.

4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution

Nearly any content can be upconverted to near-4K UHD resolution with the 4K X-Reality PRO and Object-Based Super Resolution features. They help the picture processor analyze and processes data to enrich detail, textures, and clarity in images using intelligent dual-database processing.

TRILUMINOS Display Technology

TRILUMINOS Display technology is engineered to widen the color spectrum, allowing the TV to reproduce more colors. It analyzes and processes data to help provide more precise details and colors.

X-Motion Clarity Technology

X-Motion Clarity technology helps fast action stay smooth and clear. Moving images are precisely controlled to minimize blur so that pictures remain true with less loss in brightness during high-speed scenes.

Ambient Optimization Technology

This technology is designed to automatically adjust picture and sound settings to your environment. An embedded light sensor helps optimize picture brightness to your room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark rooms. For enhanced sound, Acoustic Auto Calibration analyzes the room's environment and optimizes sound for your room.

Smart Home Connectivity

With Google Home and Amazon Alexa compatibility, you can control the TV with just your voice. Ask it to cast and control videos from YouTube via Google Home or change the channel or volume with Amazon Alexa. Via a future firmware update, Apple HomeKit and AirPlay 2 support integrate your iPhone and Siri devices with the TV for smart home management and content streaming.

HDR, IMAX Enhanced, and Netflix Calibrated Mode

HDR (high dynamic range) combines with 4K UHD content for enhanced detail, color, and contrast with a wide range of brightness. Dolby Vision HDR compatibility brings compatible content to life with augmented highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. IMAX Enhanced content is digitally remastered to provide the image sharpness and more audio power that the creator intended, and Netflix Calibrated Mode was developed so you can enjoy Netflix original content the way its creators intended. The dedicated Netflix button on the remote control lets you start streaming with just one press.

One-Slate Design

With the slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, helping it blend into nearly any room environment. The flush surface with narrow aluminum bezel helps keep you focused on the picture, not the TV. Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden, helping the TV stay virtually free of clutter. The tabletop stand can be adjusted to raise the TV to fit a soundbar.

Optional Slim Wall Mount

The separately sold SU-WL855 wall mount is designed to hold the A8H like a work of art. Pull the TV out and swivel it left or right to adjust the screen angle for optimal viewing.

CalMAN Ready

To address color variations from the production process, this TV is compatible with CalMAN auto-calibration software. This provides additional levels of calibration and the ability to fine-tune adjustments not possible through conventional picture settings. It's designed to deliver high-fidelity color reproduction that's true to the original TV signal and can adapt to subtle changes in color that may occur over time.

OLED Technology

Each pixel is its own light source, which creates the potential for the display to produce true black levels, helping to enhance contrast and overall color accuracy.

IMAX Enhanced

IMAX Enhanced certification designates that the A8H 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.

Simple Soundbar Placement

Installing the stand backwards adds extra height, allowing you to place your soundbar without compromising your viewing experience.

Integrated Cable Management

Hide your cables from set-top boxes and other components within the stand.

Object-Based HDR Remaster

This feature analyzes the color in individual objects on the screen and adjusts the contrast to help enhance depth, textures, and image realism.

Connect with Google Home

Your Google Home ecosystem can provide hands-free control of the TV, allowing you to find and cast your favorite videos to the TV with just your voice.

Super Bit Mapping HDR

Super Bit Mapping HDR is designed to create a smooth, natural image while you watch, without color banding.

4K X-Reality PRO

This feature helps sharpen and refine images in real time to reveal additional detail.

Chromecast built-in

The A8H has Chromecast built-in, allowing you to cast your favorite entertainment from your compatible device onto the TV. It supports Android, iOS, and other operating systems.

Clear Phase for Balanced Frequencies

The A8H uses a computer model to analyze and compensate for inaccuracies in speaker response by sampling the speaker frequency with high precision. This information is fed back to cancel out any peaks or dips in the speaker's natural response to help produce pure, natural audio with smooth, even reproduction of all frequencies.

Bluetooth Connectivity

Pair your compatible Bluetooth headphones with the TV to enjoy TV shows and music without disturbances or interruptions.

Dolby Atmos

Dolby Atmos is designed to make it seem like sound comes from above as well as from the sides, helping you hear objects moving overhead with more realism.

S-Force Front Surround

By upconverting inputs, this feature virtually reproduces a multichannel surround speaker system within the TV to create a more immersive experience.

Voice Zoom

With Voice Zoom, you can hear dialogue clearly without turning up the volume. This feature is particularly helpful for news bulletins and documentaries.

Over 5000 Apps Available

The Smart Android TV platform has over 5000 apps available to provide a variety of entertainment options. Apps are designed to start fast, with virtually no waiting when switching between apps.

Smart Remote

Connect your compatible set-top boxes and other devices via HDMI and control them all using the smart remote. The slim, rounded design with built-in voice control microphone and simplified button layout helps make it easy to use.

Sony is known for making exceptional televisions and the A8H/OLED/4K Ultra HD 65” is an exceptional tv. The picture is crystal clear and the sound quality is great. I love using Google Assistant in the remote to turn the TV on and off and go to different channels. The tv is lightweight and was easy to lift and attach to the wall mount. The instructions on how to operate the tv and all of its features was clear and concise. I am very happy with my purchase.

What is the lifespan of this panel (number of hours before the brightness decreases by half)?
Asked by: dan
Hi dan, thank you for your inquiry. It is difficult for Sony or any other manufacturer to quote the life expectancy for a product. Certain variables, such as the amount of use (or lack thereof) a product receives and the environmental conditions in which a product is being used, play a part in the life expectancy of a product. I hope this helps. Regards, Erin
