Sony A8F 4K UHD OLED TV – The Best We Have Seen In 2018

The quality in both sound and video is truly amazing. Sony have definitely refined this TV for the future home. It is an LG panel (OLED) with Sony’s chipset and upscaling technology built-in, creating beautiful deep blacks and natural colours.

Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are precisely and individually controlled by the X1™ Extreme processor creating exquisite and unprecedented contrast. The only downfall is that only 2 of the 4 HDMI ports support the latest full 4K @ 60fps resolution. But this is not a big deal it is a solid performer and the best TV we have seen in 2018.

Check out this video link showcasing this beautiful TV.

This screen has Sony’s Acoustic Surface™ technology where the sound comes directly from the screen. Two innovative actuators behind the TV vibrate delicately to create sound that moves within the picture so dialogue and special effects can be heard from precisely the right place. Two side-facing subwoofers on the back of the panel provides improved bass for dynamic action scenes.

The Android TV operating system has its positives (applications are virtually endless) but the lag and performance of the Android TV is often scrutinised. Sony are releasing a new improved update in Q3 2018 which should be more stable and responsive.

Control4 Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) software is built into this Sony TV to make integration with your already existing Control4 system easy and seamless. Incorporating Control4 SDDP technology into new products is a great way for companies to easily enter the rapidly growing home and commercial automation industry.
