X1 processor at its heart for powerful realism

The processor enhances every aspect of the image, including color, contrast, and clarity, to provide optimized depth and realism. Working with the TRILUMINOS display, the colors are natural and authentic, giving you the a true feeling of ‘being there’.Sony BRAVIA KD-65XH8196BU

Soft image, with Motionflow XR400
Sony’s Motionflow XR400Hz technology keeps movement fluid, without sounding artificial. Achieving the perfect balance between blurry and natural motion images, motionflow XR400 stays true to the director’s intentions.

HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximizes image quality, bringing details to the darker areas of the image, as well as making the overall image more realistic than ever. In addition to the HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony also supports Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimizes the HDR format to simply deliver the sharpest and most accurate images possible. A largely industry standard, Dolby Vision continuously adjusts the image for maximum realism.

Smart Android TV
Sony’s Android system, which brings together photos, music, movies, the Internet and apps, makes it easy to access a wide range of entertainment. The Android platform brings more apps than any other smart TV platform, which means you have the widest selection of smart TVs possible.Sony BRAVIA KD-65XH8196BU

TV voice control
With the built-in Google Assistant, Sony KD-65XH8196BU TV easily becomes part of your Google/Android Home network. If you prefer to use a different platform, Sony is also compatible. Support for Apple AirPlay and Homekit lets you integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can control your voice using your existing Alexa device.

Crisp, Sony style
With a super thin, aluminum-like bezel, this Sony TV hides its volume well and has the classic style you’d expect from a BRAVIA design. The matching legs not only provide stable support, but also complement the design with its eye-catching premium blade design and convenient integrated cable management.Photo:SonySony BRAVIA KD-65XH8196BU
