The fast pace at which the television industry and technology has been moving hand in hand has been difficult to follow. The size of the television sets has been progressively becoming larger, and yet still, the next television sets that are expected to hit the markets are jumbo TV sets and also some companies may offer 8K TV sets as well.
That brings us to the next question, is that, is it possible for humans to be able to differentiate and see the ultra-high-quality pictures? Technically speaking, the 8K sets offer higher resolution pictures, which means better picture quality.
4K versus 8K
To understand why the 8k resolutions sets are being touted as the best, you need to have a clear idea of what the resolutions mean. The resolution pictures for 4K set have is3,840 by 2,160 pixels. The 8K resolution, on the other hand, offers 7,680 by 4,320, which is four times greater than that of the 4K sets.
The reason these figures make a difference is that picture clarity is at the best that you can get and the pictures are so detailed that you can see everything crystal clear from a distance as well.
Why you should opt for an 8K set?
If the picture quality is not enough to convince you, there are many other factors that should push you to make the right choice. When you buyan 8K smart LED TVset, you have the choice of multiple brands that are coming up with the latest high-tech developments, such as using artificial intelligence to boost and convert poorer quality pictures to better and smoother pictures with the right colour setting.
The 8K televisions sets will also have a better colour scheme than its predecessors, due to enhanced and fine-tuned HDR features. The wide colour palette ensures a more enjoyable and realistic TV watching experience than ever before. Programs depicting nature and wildlife can truly look realistic with high-performance technology.
What does 8K TV require?
In order to get the 8K TV set, it requires high-speed leading and connection as a8K video can take up a lot of bandwidth. What does this mean? This means that the 8K television set that you have bought will require an HDMI 2.1. This will ensure that the cable and the source devices can handle the bandwidth, which is necessary for the 8K set for the home theatre devices.
The HDMI 2.1 cable is a new standard for the latest high-tech developments for the 4K and the 8K sets. The bandwidth for these cables has been increased to handle 48Gbps; on the otherhand, the older HDMI 2 can only handle 18 Gbps that supports the 4K60 videos. The lower bandwidth cables can only handle lower lowered resolutions pictures and also a lower number for the video frame rate. This means the pictures need to be compressed to be viewed, thereby cutting out the main details for the 8K TV.These sets have a requirement of ultra-high-speed HDMI cables that can transmit the superior image resolution for the higher-end sets.
Although there is hype with the latest sets of technology, it is prudent to wait it out before the purchase of the television sets for a number of reasons. One of the biggest drawbacks of buying the latest technology is the price tag it comes with. The 32-inch smart LED TV or any other size of the 8K sets is not just exorbitant, but also redundant to a certain extent as the native content cannot be watched on the set yet.
The best time to purchase the 8K sets should be by 2020 end, by which time, it should be easily the top premier set to buy. The main factor which is the streaming content for these sets are yet to be the standard and all streaming, broadcast and physical media need to be adapted to the new technology. Most of the popular streaming services are yet to adapt to the 8K system, except for YouTube, which already supports the format. It is,however, expected that the Amazon, Apple TV+, Disney+ and Netflix will be the first one to convert.
Therefore, if you are thinking of upgrading to the next level of technology, hold on until there are enough media and streaming and broadcasting services and adaptable technology before taking a plunge.
