Supreme picture quality and brightness in our largest screen size

It’s BRAVIA at its brightest and biggest. Designed to perform flawlessly in demanding professional environments, super-size 98” BRAVIA BZ50L boasts cutting-edge technology and installation-friendly features. With 780 nit brightness, cinematic colour, contrast and a huge viewing angle plus doubled memory to store more apps and content, it’s the 4K HDR professional display that’s bigger in every way.

Spectacular 780 nit brightness, and more

Brighter is better. In busy retail showrooms or corporate lobbies, 98” BRAVIA shines with an extraordinary 780 nit screen brightness that can’t be missed, even in light-flooded spaces. Full Array Local Dimming boosts peak brightness further still to an eye-popping 1500 nits.

Superior pictures, always

Richer, more lifelife colour

XR Triluminos Pro colour technology expresses an even wider palette of exquisitively lifelike hues and tones, thanks to Sony’s unique Cognitive Processor XR processor.

Cognitive Processor XR™

The world’s first picture processor with cognitive intelligence understands how humans really see the world. 98″ BRAVIA with Cognitive Processor XR™ opens up an unprecedented viewing experience that immerses you even more deeply in the scene.

XR Colour logo

Discover an even wider palette of beautifully natural colours with extended hue and saturation, vivid shades and realistic textures.

XR Clarity logo

Cognitive Processor XR™ accesses vast amounts of picture data, intelligently recreating lost details and texture with upscaled image sources.

XR Motion logo

XR Motion Clarity™ analyses scene data to ensure on-screen action stays smooth, bright and clear without blur, even in fast-moving scenes.

XR Contrast logo

With XR Contrast Booster bright areas are brighter and dark areas darker, adding depth to scenes without lost highlights or shadow details.

Professionally designed for flexible installation

Other so-called professional displays are little more than televisions with a few additional features thrown in as an afterthought. 98” BRAVIA is engineered from the ground up for quicker, easier, more flexible installation in retail and corporate environments.

Lighten the load

98” BRAVIA BZ50L weighs around 20kg less than the previous 100” 100BZ40J model, lightening the load on installation teams.

Safer carrying

Ergonomically positioned lower horizontal levels are easy to grab, making lifting easier and more comfortable.

Side mounted terminals

All signal connections – including audio, video, networking, control and USB ports – are mounted on the side of the display to simplify installation.

Subtle logo positioning

The Sony logo is discreetly positioned on the edge of the display’s beautifully slim 20mm bezel. So there’s nothing to distract your audience from immersive, super-size images.

Portrait and tilt

Robust Usability

The BRAVIA FW-98BZ50L contains a host of useful functions for business, such as purpose driven applications and setting customization to make daily work more efficient.

Professional Settings

BRAVIA makes doing business even easier, allowing you to fine-tune settings to suit the demands of corporate or retail environments. Disable input or remote control functions, remove labels and block buttons to avoid tampering when the screen’s being used in public spaces. Customise and store display settings, then copy them easily from display to display via USB flash memory.

Simple signage

Informing and guiding visitors with digital signage in retail stores and corporate spaces has never been easier. On-board BRAVIA Signage Free (BSF) software automatically plays out HTML content, video and photos copied onto a USB stick memory when it’s slipped into BRAVIA. It’s that simple.

Simple screen mirroring

Easily mirror content wirelessly from your own handheld device onto BRAVIA with in-built support for Apple AirPlay and Google Chromecast.

HTML5 logo
Flexible content layout

In-built support for HTML5 lets you use BRAVIA to display interactive signage content without needing a dedicated set-top box, media player or PC. On-screen content can be freely laid out using 4K video, still images or even with the HDMI input.

Get great pictures fast

Forget fiddling with display settings – focus on getting amazing results without fuss. One Step Setting offers presets tuned to your environment including meeting room, vivid signage, natural signage and graphics. Just pick a preset: BRAVIA instantly configures picture mode, input, control settings and more.

Large 32GB internal storage

The internal memory on some other displays is eaten up by the operating system, leaving little space for your own apps and content. 98” BRAVIA doubles internal storage from 16GB to a generous 32GB – giving loads more room on board to hold apps, photos, videos and digital signage.

Sustainability in every scene

With growing demand for ever larger display screens, there is also the risk of greater resource and energy use. However, Sony’s sustainability commitments are realising efficiency gains from product development right through to watching TV and viewing screens.
