Images that shine bright
From dark to light and everything in between, the HX95 brings you immersive viewing that's bright and clear. Whether you're watching in 2D or 3D, a unique Full LED screen shows rich colours, high contrast and natural, realistic movement, all from a slim, minimalist design. It's image quality that's true to life.

Bright whites and deep blacks
Turn on the HX95 and everything soon becomes clear. The Full LED screen arranges LED Lights into precise zones behind the picture to raise and lower brightness exactly where needed; delivering brilliant light in bright image areas and dimming dark areas completely. It saves energy, reveals more detail and ensures a higher contrast than a conventional LED TV.
