8K Technology TVs to be launched soon?
Recently we published article on “What is 4K Technology?” and also published reviews on 4K TVs available in market from some of the big TV manufacturers. The 4K technology is also referred as the Ultra High Definition (UHD) Technology. There is further revelation in the TV/projector screen resolution which is the 8K Technology. It will be called as Super Hi Vision. Of course, the 8K technology is not coming as a big surprise. When the manufacturers started building the 4K TVs the 8K Technology TV was already displayed by Sharp in 2012 CEs.
The 8K Technology will multiply the current TV resolutions of 720p (1280 x 720 pixels) or 1080p (1920 x 1080 pixels) 16 times. The pixel density would be multiplied 16 times producing the finest of the images on your TV screen. It will produce astonishing resolution of 7680 × 4320 (33.2 megapixels) which is 16 times the pixels of current 1080p HDTV. The resolution will be closer to the detail level of 15/70mm IMAX screen.
As like the 4K TVs, for the 8K Technology TVs also you need to go for a big screen and projector to get the advantage of this cutting edge technology. Unless you are very close to the TV screen, you won’t be able to see pixel on the screen. Your current TV will become absolute and you need to get the 8K Technology TV to watch the transmission. The likes of Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and LG will launch the 8k Technology TVs soon though Sharp is the first manufacture to display the technology 2 years back. Since Samsung is the leader in the panel manufacturing, expectations are that they will be the next to bring the 8K Technology TVs into the market.
Like 4K Technology, you will not be able to take advantage of the 8K Technology unless your blue-ray player will have the upscaling capability and unless there is an extra bandwidth to transmit 8K contents. We will see how the 8K Technology evolve and how the big manufacture embrace the technology and bring it right into your bedroom, it might be one of the attraction at CEs 2014.
