Samsungs First 8K TV Goes On Live By Coming Weeks
Samsung, the Korean tech giant announced about its first 8K TV, Q900 at IFA (Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin) 2018 expo.
The QLED panel is of four different choices of the size such as 65-inch, 75-inch, and 82-inch with 4,000 nits of peak brightness delivered by Direct Full Array Elite backlighting, powered by HDR 10� technology and 8K quantum processor.
The 8K resolution allows four times more pixel than 4K UHD TV and 16 times more in case of a full HD TV. Audio of the TV is also under AI technology which aims to enhance the audio performance depending on the type of content. For instance, after a sixer in a cricket match, the crowd sound will be automatically increased.
Samsungs explainer said compares low and high-quality versions of the same content to learn the technological differences between the two and form a vast database. It analyzes millions of pieces of video content and finds a correlation.
Based on its analysis, it can select the optimum filters that support brightness, the level of blackness, spread and other errors from all inputs, and transform low-definition content to close to the 8K high definition.
But since there is zero 8K content on the market right now the TV is upscaling 4K content which is done by an artificial intelligence tool that will resemble its content to 8K footage.
The company has announced its price for Q900 to be $10,000 (7,700) and we can expect new smart TV to come with the similar price range.
