And here are few of the key technologies embedded in this TV:
XR Contrast
The Cognitive Processor XR benchmarks data and enhances the image in the same way the human eye focuses, for more realistic colors and depth. With XR OLED contrast, brightness is adjusted for higher peaks in highlights and darker blacks in shadows – no more hidden detail in shadows or lost in highlights.

XR Triluminos Pro™
With Cognitive Processor XR, this TV reproduces colors in a beautiful way for people. See a larger palette of colors with an improved range of hues and saturations, allowing natural shadows and precise details to be seen, even in dark scenes.

XR HDR Remaster
With XR HDR Remaster, this TV can detect every object on the screen, analyze its color and adjust the contrast for an even more realistic picture. The object-based processing provided by BRAVIA XR™ takes precision to a new level by adding adjustments to hue, saturation, brightness, motion vector, bandwidth and more. The result is stunningly realistic scenes with greater depth, realistic textures and natural colors.

Acoustic Surface Audio+
With Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology, sound comes directly from the center of the screen with powerful speakers behind the TV vibrating to create acoustics that move with the picture. Because the sound follows the action, you'll hear more realistic dialogue and sound effects. The forward-facing subwoofer delivers powerful bass and ensures you won't miss anything happening on the screen. The speaker and subwoofer allow you to enjoy stable sound whether the TV is on the wall, on a shelf, or on a stand.

3D surround scaling
BRAVIA XR's signal processing technology enables the TV to reproduce multidimensional sound for a truly immersive experience. Feel the sound around you, not only from the left and right, but also from a vertical direction. With 3D surround upscaling, you can experience the cinematic excitement of the latest audio formats, such as Dolby Atmos®, and vertical surround with content not compatible with Dolby Atmos.

Chromecast built-in
Chromecast lets you cast your favorite videos, games and apps from your mobile device, in full quality, to your TV with Chromecast built-in. One tap of the Cast button on Android or iOS is enough to magnify the things you like. Stream content and work with your phone or tablet.

These are just some of the key features of the Bravia XR XR55A80J but there is a lot more technology incorporated in this high-end TV.
