In partnership with Netflix, Sony released the Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode that can automatically adjust image processing based on ambient light so your favorite shows and movies look like how the creator wanted them to be viewed.

Additionally, the new BRAVIA CORE calibrated mode automatically adjusts the image quality on-screen. All BRAVIA XR TVs will be designated ‘Perfect for PlayStation 5’ and includes two exclusive features – Auto HDR Tone Mapping and Auto Genre Picture Mode.
