Sony A8F OLED Ul­tra HDTV

Sound & Vision - - NEWGEAR -

Sony con­tin­ues its OLED come­back with a scaled-down ver­sion of the award-win­ning A1E, one of Sound &

Vi­sion’s 2017 Top Picks of the Year. Avail­able in 55-inch ($3,000) and 65-inch ($4,000) ver­sions, the A8F mod­els drop the easel base in favor of a more con­ven­tional stand but re­tain Sony’s out­stand­ing X1 Ex­treme pro­ces­sor, which does as good a job of up­con­vert­ing HD and lesserqual­ity video to 4K as we’ve seen. The pro­ces­sor han­dles three fla­vors of HDR—HDR10, Dolby Vi­sion, and Hy­brid Log-gamma (Hlg)—and an­a­lyzes color and ad­justs con­trast in real time to pro­duce a more re­al­is­tic pic­ture. See It, Hear It:

The A8F se­ries also re­tains Sony’s unique Acous­tic Sur­face “sound on screen” tech­nol­ogy that turns the en­tire screen into a sound-pro­duc­ing di­aphragm, com­ple­mented by bass from a sub­woofer mounted be­hind the screen. Sony • (239) 245-6354 •
