Picture Processor X1 Ultimate
With enhanced processing power, the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate is designed to analyze content to bring out the TV’s high contrast ratio with pure blacks, peak brightness, and natural colors. Object-based HDR remastering happens in real time to detect hundreds of individual objects on-screen and intelligently upscale everything you see to near-4K HDR quality.
Pixel Contrast Booster
Over 8 million self-illuminating pixels are individually controlled by the Picture Processor X1 Ultimate, and the Pixel Contrast Booster helps augment color and contrast in bright areas to help create lifelike shades and hues, more depth, fine texture, and the pure black contrast of OLED technology.
Acoustic Surface Audio
With Acoustic Surface Audio, sound comes to you directly from the entire screen, helping to create an immersive, multidimensional audio experience. The woofer integrated into the rear of the TV helps provide more dynamic, bass-heavy sound for action movies and music.

HDR, IMAX Enhanced, and Netflix Calibrated Mode
HDR (high dynamic range) combines with 4K UHD content for enhanced detail, color, and contrast with a wide range of brightness. Dolby Vision HDR compatibility brings compatible content to life with augmented highlights, deeper darks, and vibrant colors. IMAX Enhanced content is digitally remastered to provide the image sharpness and more audio power that the creator intended, and Netflix Calibrated Mode was developed so you can enjoy Netflix original content the way its creators intended. The dedicated Netflix button on the remote control lets you start streaming with just one press.
With the slim one-slate design, the screen meets the edge of the TV, helping it blend into nearly any room environment. The flush surface with narrow aluminum bezel helps keep you focused on the picture, not the TV. Cable holders keep wires neatly hidden, helping the TV stay virtually free of clutter. The tabletop stand can be adjusted to raise the TV to fit a soundbar.
Optional Slim Wall Mount
The separately sold SU-WL855 wall mount is designed to hold the A8H like a work of art. Pull the TV out and swivel it left or right to adjust the screen angle for optimal viewing.
To address color variations from the production process, this TV is compatible with CalMAN auto-calibration software. This provides additional levels of calibration and the ability to fine-tune adjustments not possible through conventional picture settings. It’s designed to deliver high-fidelity color reproduction that’s true to the original TV signal and can adapt to subtle changes in color that may occur over time.
Each pixel is its own light source, which creates the potential for the display to produce true black levels, helping to enhance contrast and overall color accuracy.
IMAX Enhanced certification designates that the A8H meets certain audio and video performance criteria set by a committee of IMAX and DTS engineers and A/V technical specialists. These criteria include image, sound, scale, and content quality. Onboard IMAX calibrated modes are set and approved by Hollywood colorists to help provide enhanced picture and sound for HDR UHD content.
