So bright and so thin

Watch the football retain its detail during a kickoff and move smoothly as the camera follows it from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 240 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can’t for clearer and more natural movement.
Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions.
