LG took advantage of the IFA in Berlin to announce the first television 8K OLED of the market in addition to the world's first television NanoCell 8K.
Both televisions offer a resolution Native 8K, and this translates into 7680 x 4320 pixels, that is to say, four times more pixels than 4K resolution or 16x times more pixels regarding the standardized resolution Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels). And as expected, he pulled a gift for manufacturers like Samsung or Sony, indicating that these televisions are the first "8K real".
As indicated by the company, the 8K standard not only requires that the resolution be limited to the pixel count, but that 'neighboring' pixels must be indistinguishable from each other. This is something called measuring the Contrast Modulation (CM for its acronym in English), and should be greater than 25% for images and at 50% For the text.
LG says its new wave of Signature OLED 8K TVs have CM values "in the range of 90%"and adds that the owners will be able to"really experience all the additional details in the 8K content".
7680 x 4320 pixels equals nothing less than 33 million pixels which, when joined by the OLED panel, means that each pixel is auto-illuminated, and that is an achievement in itself. LG has an 8K OLED TV 88 inch and a NanoCell 8K TV from 75 inch which offer a "real 8K" resolution, since both pass the required CM levels, but also include Nano Color, which increases color reproduction, softens the image, and joins technology Nano Black To improve blacks.
TVs LG Signature OLED 8K Y 8K NanoCell They have Cinema HDR, 4x HDMI 2.1 ports, and use an Alpha 9 Gen2 processor. Both will go on sale in much of Europe, the United States and Australia over the next few months, but as expected, you still can not be scared with the prices.
