Witness colour accuracy on a large scale with the immense Sony KD85XG8596BU 85 inch LCD UHD 4K Smart Television.

Sony's XG85 range are edge-lit, so LEDs beam from the corners of the set onto an LCD back panel, illuminating as and when needed.

Frame dimming can change the light across the whole screen, scene by scene, to produce deep blacks and bright whites.

Colour saturation is enhanced by the Triluminos display, which delivers authentic and natural-looking shades and hues.

Reds, greens, blues and even skin tones come to life and are free from fading, at all angles, even under the influence of direct sunlight.

Live colour technology uses the backlight system to widen the gamut, so there's no smudging or dulling of the image even off-axis.

High dynamic range compatibility, for most scenarios, comes through the picture reproduction qualities of HDR 10, HLG and Dolby Vision.

The HDR focus is object-based, with a dynamic contrast enhancer that adjusts to the television's environment for more defined colours.

Remastering for live broadcasts is supplied by Hybrid Log Gamma (HLG), as a single process that can replicate differing light displays.

Clarity is made crystal clear by 4K X-Reality Pro, which fine-tunes the algorithms produced to reduce the noise from digital compression and boost detail.

Motionflow XR refreshes at a high frame rate with the native panel frequency to virtually eliminate blurring and blinking, in real time.

Side back and down-firing speakers create a grid of Acoustic Multi-Audio surround sound, with audio processing from Dolby Atmos and DTS Digital.

The Android 8.0 Oreo operating system has been developed by Google, which has traditionally used the name of sweet treats for these releases.

This provides multiple video streaming services and live channels. Netflix, YouTube and Prime Video are on board, with more apps available through the Google Play Store.

It's all conducted through the 4K HDR Processor X1, a powerful chip that drives picture handling and can also effectively upscale lower definition content.
