Where to buy

Overview

Immersive 4K picture quality for corporate display, education and digital signage applications
Bring the eye-catching depth and resolution of 4K to your business with this 55" BRAVIA Professional 4K LED Display. Slim, beautifully styled and energy efficient, it's ideal for corporate presentations, digital signage, video conferencing and educational applications.

4K delivers four times the screen resolution of Full HD, with Sony's powerful 4K Processor X1 assuring extra clarity, colour and contrast for all your visual communications. BRAVIA also supports HDR, allowing you to benefit from the new wave of high-impact content with a wider brightness range.

With an HTML5 platform built in, BRAVIA offers everything you need to build a complete entry-level networked digital signage solution with no extra boxes or player hardware needed. Play out content directly over HDMI, from a connected USB device or over the network. TDM Digital Signage licenses let you create compelling, media-rich signage for one or more screens, with no need for special design skills.

Support for Android TV allows quick customisation and extra functionality with a growing range of B2B applications, including content sharing, video conferencing and more. Control power, volume, channel change and other functions over the network via a web API. And for even greater versatility, an optional overlay turns BRAVIA into a multi-point touch sensitive display for interactive kiosk and information point applications.

Integration is simple, with flexible mounting and versatile control options. Hotel Professional Mode allows customisation and storage of advanced display settings.
