Vivid colours and sharp clarity are superbly defined on the Sony KD49XG8196BU 49 inch LCD UHD 4K Smart Television.

This TV has an edge-lit backlighting system, so rows of LEDs are placed on each side of the set which beam into the centre of the screen.

It mixes in with the LCD panel and Triluminos display to create vibrant and life-like images, with frame dimming controlling the brightness.

This dimming method changes the whole frame, when the scene calls for a change of contrast, rather focussing on a specific region.

Smooth transitions and realistic colour saturation, from deep and dark settings to beautiful night shots under dazzling lights, complement this.

Reds, greens, blues and even skin tones come to life, in an authentic and natural-looking way, with live colour technology keeping this process fluid in real time.

The dynamic contrast enhancer can adjust settings according to the television's surroundings, too, so all tones and shades remain perfectly plain to see.

This model is all about crystal clear 4K HDR viewing, with high dynamic range expressed in the HDR10 format as a rendering tool for picture reproduction.

Hybrid log gamma is also supported, with HLG able to adapt to the light displays of live broadcasts as they change, without requiring dynamic metadata.

Motionflow XR can keep any footage free-flowing, while 4K X-Reality Pro comes into play for effective upscaling of lower definition content.

Surround sound is expressed through two full range bass reflex speakers, a host of audio functions for seamless processing.

S-Force Front Surround can emulate 3D sound fields, with Clear Audio capabilities able to fine tune the format and frequency.

Various sound modes are available to enhance this viewing experience with standard, dialog, cinema, music and sports to choose from.

Picture settings are even more plentiful with specialist options for animation, graphics, photos and a game mode, to name but a few.

The true cinema feature is a match for the movie makers, as it emulates the 24 frames per second rate that films are shot in, so there's no irregular flow of images.

The Android 7.0 Nougat operating system has been developed in conjunction with Google, so the Play Store, Chromecast and Google Assistant can all be used.

The television has 16GB of storage capacity and provides access to plenty of streaming apps including YouTube and Netflix.

These are accessed by a few clicks of the Infra Red Blaster, which also has voice control capabilities through Google Assistant.

Further benefits of the Sony KD49XG8196BU 49 inch LCD UHD 4K TV

  • The IR blaster can also manage external devices, so the set becomes a central hub.
  • Amazon Alexa is also compatible, for hands-free control of channels and volume.
  • Keep your cables concealed in the holder, so that wires appear to be neat and tidy.
  • Store your favourite shows on a USB HDD, by accessing the digital recorder feature.
  • You can catch up with and demand programming through YouView, which is built-in.
