BRAVIA™ S8500C, the Perfect Curve for the Perfect Entertainment Experience

(Malaysia, 27 October 2015)- See the world come to life on the new BRAVIA S8500C 4K Ultra HD TV. Featuring a curved screen to provide the perfect blend of immersion and comfort, the S8500C is set to bring you on a journey filled with seamless entertainment experience.

Available in 55- and 65-inch, the S8500C surrounds you with stunning pictures that are four times the detail of Full HD, captivating your sense of sight and pulling you right into the heart of the action. Furthermore, its slim and gently contoured screen ensures that visuals look lifelike, regardless of where you're sitting in the room. Another plus point of the design is that it'll effortlessly make the room look great with its classy and refined finish.

The new BRAVIA™ TV also comes with the powerful 4K Processor X1 chip, making pictures burst to life with crystal clear clarity and amazing colour contrast by re-mastering content in stunning 4K Ultra HD resolution. 4K X-Reality™ PRO technology up-scales regular content and showcases them in 4K quality, beautifully presenting every little detail on screen, regardless of the source. At the same time, TRILUMINOS™ Display further enhances your viewing experience by producing a wider palette of colour that would bring out the realism of your favourite movies and videos.

To complete your movie experience at the comfort of your own home, the S8500C doesn't compromise on sound. ClearAudio+ enables you to enjoy the authenticity of the audio content by fine-tuning sound and presenting them in rich, detailed quality. DSEE (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine) technology restores low quality audio files and upscales them to near High-Res quality, revealing more natural sound with a more spacious feel. Immerse yourself in every tune, dialogue and surround effects, close your eyes and you'll feel as if you're listening directly from the original source.

For those who are addicted to your smartphone or tablet, try out Google Cast™. It lets you cast content from your gadget onto the big TV screen, making everything look bigger and better. If you're big on sharing life's happiest moments, Photo Sharing Plus enables you to showcase photos, videos and music from your smartphone on the S8500C. Friends and families can also save files shown on the big screen with their mobile devices.
