The X1™ Ultimate, picture processor, precisely analyses and processes data to power 8K pictures with four times the resolution of 4K for scenes rich in depth, texture and detail. Even images filmed in 4K and 2K are upscaled close to 8K by 8K X-Reality™ PRO using a unique 8K database. Resolution of each subject is then optimised by Object-based Super Resolution to reproduce greater depth, textures, and more realistic pictures textures. With Object-based HDR remaster, the colour in individual objects on screen is analysed and the contrast adjusted, unlike most TVs where contrast is only adjusted along one black-to-white contrast curve.

- Acoustic Multi Audio sound-from-picture reality is faithfully reproduced for the best audio experience
Acoustic Multi-Audio™ in Z8H includes a vibrating frame tweeter, a speaker that enables sound to follow the action for a truly immersive experience. It gives viewers the feeling that sound is coming directly from the screen and not from a speaker at the bottom. Independent amps are controlled separately to precisely manage sound positioning in high tone areas, enhancing sound pressure and stability for absolute realism.
- Multidimensional sound with S-Force Front Surround Sound and Dolby Atmos® built-in
With the new Z8H, you can hear the sound as you would from a separate multi surround speaker. By upconverting inputs, S-Force Front Surround virtually reproduces a multi surround speaker system within your TV, so you can enjoy all the thrills of more immersive sound. With Dolby Atmos, sound comes from above as well as from the sides, so you can hear objects moving overhead for a truly multi-dimensional experience.
- With ambient optimisation technology experience the best picture and sound in any environment
Z8H boasts of unique ambient optimisation technology automatically adjusting picture and sound to your environment. On conventional TVs, brightness stays the same regardless of light in a room, resulting in pictures that are too dark or bright. This 8K TV includes an embedded light sensor that optimises picture brightness to room conditions, boosting brightness in light rooms and reducing it in dark ones, so you get the perfect view. Similarly, the sound experience can also change depending on your room environment. Curtains, for example, absorb sound while objects in front of the TV can disturb the passage of sound, compromising the quality of what you hear. This TV detects objects and reproduces sound that’s enhanced and optimised as per the setting in your room.
