What is 8K TV?by Emmanuel Junior
What does 8K mean?
An 8K TV is a TV that has a screen with 7,680 horizontal and 4,320 vertical pixels for a total of approximately 33 million pixels. The "K" in 8K stands for Kilo (1000), meaning a TV that has achieved a horizontal resolution of about 8,000 pixels.
8K TV is the highest resolution TV that has been released recently among UHD (ultra high definition) TVs. With four times more pixels than a 4K TV—another type of UHD resolution—8K TVs show a sharper and more detailed picture quality. This is because in 8K TVs pixels are so small they cannot be distinguished even from close up, making highly detailed images a reality.
Turn what you love into 8K with AI Upscaling.
All 8K TVs have Upscaling technology. However, every TV maker implements its specific technology to produce 8K-like quality visuals.
In 2019, Samsung 8K TV was introduced with its specialized 8K AI Upscaling technology. The AI Upscaling technology uses a method that collects and learns a wide variety of content characteristics by type and then stores them in a database. It later uses that database to process similar image types again, making for a much more sophisticated Upscaling process. With Upscaling being so essential and various choices available, make sure to compare and choose the best one.
