Hisense Reveals 8K TV As OZ Consumers Take To Their 4K UHD Technology

Hisense, who has been stripping market share from the likes of LG and Samsung in Australia is set to enter the OLED TV, they are also developing new Quantum Dot Technology, the downside is that this technology is not set to be launched till next year or early 2019.

At this year’s CES show the company is showing new 8K Ultra HD Premium ULED TV’s despite there being a limited market for the technology.

The Company claims their new 98 inch @[email protected] 8K ULED technology will contain Emmy award winning sound quality and a picture that Hisense management claim rival’s OLED.

Currently the Chinese Company is pushing their Laser Cast TV.hisense-tv-demo-50

This technology has been widely accepted by Australian consumers resulting in the local subsidiary getting to $1 in the Australian TV market.

Their short-throw projector which is HDR compatible and features a UHD upscale, delivers a 4K UHD picture measuring 100 inches diagonally.

Awarded 20 patents, Hisense’s ULED technology is up to three times brighter than OLED the company claims.Hisense_100_inch_Laser_TV.0

At their CES press conference they said that their new Hisense display technology delivers ‘better dynamic range’ and perception of black and white.

The technology enhances colour, contrast, black level, brightness and smooth motion with a combination of advanced hardware and software.

The Company said that they will release a new generation of ULED technology in 2017.

Recently the Chinese Company redesigned their Hisense Smart TV platform to include a full web browser for Hisense brand 4K televisions.

For Australia, the Hisense Smart TV platform will continue to include apps such as Netflix and YouTube – which can be accessed with the touch of a button on a newly designed remote.

In addition, Hisense Smart TV users can access Stan and other content from apps through the Opera TV Store that encompass movies and TV shows, music, gaming, lifestyle, fashion, news and international content.

Hisense Australia are not saying whether they will launch a Roku TV like the USA.

Currently the US operation is introducing a new line-up of 4K Hisense Roku TVs that run the Roku operating system. Hitachi is set to launch a similar series in Australia.

China to dominate 4K and 8K TV shipments

China to dominate 4K and 8K TV shipments

China will continue to dominate the 4K TV market, with 42% of all TVs in 2017 expected to ship with 4K panels, according to a white paper released by IHS Markit, ahead of Cable Congress 2017.

In 2016, more than 25 million 4K TVs shipped in China. By 2020, that number is expected to almost double to 44 million, the same as the next two regions (Western Europe and North America) combined. In Western Europe, more than 8 million 4K TVs shipped in 2016, forecast to increase to 19 million in 2020. North American shipments are forecast to more than double, from 11.7 million in 2016 to 25.9 million in 2020.

“China is on a different trajectory to the rest of the world when it comes to 4K TVs,” said Paul Gray, principal analyst, IHS Markit. “It is getting hard to buy a large screen TV in China without 4K. Japanese set makers also aggressively switched to 4K product ranges, especially in their domestic market, but shipments in Japan remain constrained by consumer preferences for screen sizes too small to support 4K.”

“Aggressive competition in the LCD display industry is fueling a pixel race,” Gray said. “Panel makers have added 8K resolutions to their road maps and product plans, a process that will accelerate as new Chinese LCD fabs start production.”

However, the IHS Markit white paper highlights a few challenges for 8K. The high pixel density demands that either a very large screen or short viewing distance is necessary.

China will dominate 8K shipments as its early-adopting consumers are likely to be eager for new features. 65-inch will be the dominant 8K size, driven by affordable pricing in China. While Japan is planning 8K broadcasts from 2020, for most regions 8K video content will remain scarce for the foreseeable future.

REVIEW: 8K-ready HDMI1 cable – Thai firm’s cheaper cable better than most

REVIEW: 8K-ready HDMI1 cable – Thai firm’s cheaper cable better than most

Thai firm’s cheaper cable better than most

By Paisal Chuenprasaeng

Imports can’t match Merrexkable’s latest 8K-ready HDMI1 cable

Thai firm Merrexkable is marketing a high-performance electronics cable called the Merrex HDMI1 Decade Series V2.1 that will stream 8K-resolution video from your player to your TV.

Movie players and TV sets capable of handling 8K resolution won’t even be available until next year, but meanwhile you can use this cable to enhance the picture quality of 4K and Full HD movies.

The cable – produced just as Merrexkable marks its 10th anniversary, is also good for Dynamic HDR (high dynamic range) and Game Mode VRR (variable refresh rate). It reduces lag time during game play on highend gaming platforms.

At the same time, 4K HDR is becoming a popular format for movies you can play on the new 4K TV sets. This cable will make the picture quality much better, with more realistic colours, for example.

Merrex HDMI1 Decade Series V2.1-2

To stream a movie to your TV with optimal quality, you need a high-quality HDMI cable. The Merrex cable has the two HDMI heads soldered to it with silver to reduce resistance. The cable itself is high-grade (5N OFC purity) conductors with layers of PE foam insulation to improve the high-frequency response, ensuring wider bandwidth and efficient signal transfer.

The cable is also shielded against electro-magnetic interference by top-quality insulators in twisted pairs of wrappings.

Depth of view and details in the picture are enhanced and contrast boosted, while noise grain is minimised. The cable will handle HDMI Ethernet Link and Audio Return Channel as well.

For my test, I used the cable to connect the ASUS ZenBook 3 Deluxe UX490 also reviewed on this page to an LG SJ850T Super UHD TV.

The 4K HDR YouTube clips I streamed were really outstanding in sharpness and detail and the colours and contrast were great.

Then I connected a Vivo Cute HDD player to the same TBV set to play Full HD movies. The picture quality was noticeably better than when a normal HDMI cable was in use. The picture looked brighter and the colours were more saturated. Merrexkable’s signal cables are esteemed among HiFi and home-theatre users for their premium quality and more affordable prices than imported ones.

Merrexkable started making signal cables in March 2005, initially analogue audio cables, high-grade power cables and DVD component cables (back when DVD was preferred movie format).

In 2007 the firm started making HDMI Version 1.3c cables, of which the HDMI1 Flex Flat was the first. In 2009 came the HDMI2 Low Loss cable that supported HDMI Version 1.4.

Merrexkable has been a popular choice ever since and its HDMI cables are now its signature products.

The Merrex HDMI1 Decade Series V2.1 is much cheaper than any imported equivalent. The 1.8metre line costs Bt4,100, whereas an imported cable of the same quality would set you back Bt10,000 or more.

The 1.2-metre Merrex HDMI1 Decade Series V2.1 sells for Bt3,500, three metres for Bt5,100, five metres for Bt6,100, 10 metres for Bt9,100 and 15 metres for Bt11,600.

Merrex HDMI1 Decade Series V2.1 Key Specs

– Maximum data bandwidth: 48Gbps

– Video resolution supported: 8K, 4K, Full HD (1080P)

– Functions: HDMI Ethernet Link, Audio Return Channel, Dynamic HDR, Game Mode VRR

The reality of 8K gaming – Reader’s Feature

The reality of 8K gaming – Reader’s Feature

A reader offers a helpful guide to the next generation of TVs and monitors, and when to expect video games that run at 8K.

De MamboGames review: De Mambo is a cut price Smash Bros. with balls

Over the last decade, TV manufacturers have been seeing bumper profits due to a large percentage of the planet en masse buying brand new high definition televisions. Millions of units where sold, but their success presented a problem: how do we keep up these level of sales? The answer: new formats and 3D. 4K and HDR followed, each designed to cajole the money from your pocket, but the latest buzz-initials are 8K.

As someone who follows the tech industry quiet closely, and have previously written a feature on my trials and tribulations of 4K gaming I thought I’d write this quick guide about 8K; what the state of play is with the resolution, and the problems that need to be overcome before 7680×4320 becomes the standard and goes mainstream.

Though 8K has been discussed for a few years now, and sample TVs have been seen at consumer shows like CES in Las Vegas for the last couple of years, the reality is we’re a long time before one takes pride of place in your home entertainment system. The biggest issue is these television are difficult to make and the manufacturers are experiencing poor yields, this has driven the price way beyond what an everyday person can afford.

Because they are so prohibitively expensive, sales are currently aimed at the commercial sector, think airport departure boards, other transport hubs, and advertising hordings. Things that contain a lot of information or will be viewed at a distance – places like Piccadilly circus and Times square may already use them. My prediction for 8K televisions adoption would be 2020-2021 for a retail model costing £15,000+, 2023 to drop below £3,000, and 2026-2027 before prices hit £500.

With TVs so far away, what about content? Well, let’s start with games. It’s only in the last 12 months there has been a single card capable of running 4K at 60fps, so to produce four times the pixels is going to require huge computing power. it’s worth noting no games currently support the format and the highest resolution monitor is currently 5K (5120×2880).

But as a technical excise, it is possible to run at 8K, however it would need the latest i9 processor 20+ cores, possibly 64 GBs of DDR4 RAM, and an extreme top end motherboard to run the four GPUs with a combined 44GB of GDDR RAM crunching 45 teraflops bandwidth. And unless you want it to sound like a jumbo jet taking off, a closed loop liquid cooler would be recommended. If you wanted this system building, I wouldn’t expect much change from £10,000. Any takers?

Unlike GC, the majority of us are able to use our TVs for more than just games, so what about broadcast TV? Isn’t the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games being filmed in 8K? Yes, but the live feed is only for fan zones around the country, using some of the huge screens I mention earlier, and is essentially a large beta test/advert of the technology – sample footage which will most likely be used for in-store demonstrations in the future. British broadcasters only truly embraced 4K in the last 12 to 24 months, so I’d predict 2024 before content is available here.

What about the film industry? I have read that movie studio are remastering films into 8K? Again, yes this is true but the reality is that it’s just a cost saving measure. Remaster in 8K and downscale to 4K, forgoing on a second remastering later. What might surprise you to know is that you’ve watched 4K for years, the name in fact refers to Sony’s 4K 4096×2160 (slightly wider than UHD) cinema projectors. When 4K entered the zeitgeist, it brought with it a safe comfort zone between Hollywood and the large theatre chains. If filmmakers are to start shooting in 8K it would require cinemas to upgrade their equipment, a costly endeavour they’re unlikely to rush into and is the biggest roadblock for 8K to overcome.

The story doesn’t get much better when it comes to physical media either, 4K UHD Blu-rays were very late to market compared to the televisions, and with still only a handful of players available. For 8K a whole new type of disc will need to be developed to fit the file sizes required for so many pixels. A 1080p Blu-ray file is between 25 to 40GBs, a UHD film around 50 to 85GBs, 8K around 100 to 170 GBs. 8K Blu-ray coming to you by 2025, if you’re lucky.

TV, Blu-rays, they’re old hat, it’s all about streaming. Since games and on-demand streaming services where first to adopt 4K, I think it’s safe to say they’ll be the first again, streaming is the easiest to set up logistically and the cheapest. But still it has complications. The most obvious are the download speeds needed to watch such huge files. Netflix requires 5Mbps for HD, 25Mbps for UHD, and after some simple maths likely 125Mbps for 8K. Of course, there are a lucky few who can achieve this speed, but would it be reliable enough for buffer free viewing of a two and a half hour film at peak time?

Sharp Reported to Develop 8K Digital Broadcasting System With ASTRODESIGN

Sharp Reported to Develop 8K Digital Broadcasting System With ASTRODESIGN

Sharp, the Foxconn-controlled company, is possibly to partner with ASTRODESIGN, a Japanese video and signal processing tech company, to jointly develop video processing systems able to support displays with 8K ultra-high definition, as Nikkei Asian Review carried in its report on 26 June.  With Sharp’s strengths in the development of sensor technology for LCD screens and cameras, and ASTRODESIGN’s capability to upgrade digital broadcasting, the system can be used in cameras, displays and other image processing devices.

While Sony and Panasonic announced to start selling OLED TV panels, Sharp focused on 8K TV as one of its cash cows and attempted to differentiate from its contenders by expanding its 8K product line. Sharp has rolled out 8K screens for electronic billboard displays as of late and it anticipated to sell 8K TVs in 2018.

In its mid-term operational planning (2017-2019) declared on 26th May, Sharp made public its next moves: 1) to create demand for 8K displays, 2) to launch new OLED/FFD displays, 3) to expand its overseas TV business, 4) to strengthen the 8K supply chain and the development of IoT, automotive electronic components and camera modules, and 5) to expand its client base. Sharp accordingly set a target to generate an estimate revenue of JPY 3.25 trillion (USD 28.87 billion) and an operating profit of JPY 150 billion (USD 1.33 billion) in fiscal 2019.

Sharp was considering to build in the States not only a plant to manufacture small sized displays but one for large sized LCD displays for TVs. In particular, it will introduce the most advanced 10.5th generation technology to the large LCD display manufacturing base to produce over 65-inch LCD displays for TVs as well as ones for 8K TVs to be available in 2018.

The world’s first 8K TV broadcasts are now live — here’s what that means for you

The world’s first 8K TV broadcasts are now live — here’s what that means for you

Japan’s NHK has started to broadcast TV in 8K resolution ahead of this weekend’s Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

The public broadcasting organization is sending the extremely high-resolution video to its “Super Hi-Vision” satellite test channel, which launched on Monday and also includes 4K content.

The channel isn’t available for Japanese residents to watch at home, so NHK has set up six public viewing stations across the country for those interested in the tech. It’ll broadcast footage from Rio Olympics, highlights from the 2012 London Games, and various concerts, among other things.

NHK has been preparing this test for years. The larger hope is to implement the technology nationwide in time for 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

The 8K spec itself broadcasts at a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels. That’s about four times the resolution of most 4K TVs, which are still not fully ubiquitous today, and 16 times the resolution as 1080p HDTVs. The “Super Hi-Vision” format is also capable of advanced 22.2-channel audio — that’s bigger, deeper, better surround-sound audio.

TV makers like Samsung, LG, and Sharp have showcased 8K panels at events like CES for the past few years. In late 2015, Sharp actually put one on the market in Japan, but it cost well over $100,000.

This is all exciting tech, but it’s worth remembering that, on its own, 8K will never mean much to the average TV user. Apart from the usual challenge of getting content makers to actually adopt the format, it’s physically impossible for the human eye to see the benefits of 8K under most circumstances.

4k 8k tvsCarlton Bale

This is still the case with 4K, too. This chart from Carlton Bale has been passed around for awhile now, but it hasn’t become any less true. From just five feet away, you’d need an 80-inch TV to start seeing the added sharpness. 80 inches! Unless all TV manufacturers suddenly become charities, TVs that big will never adorn most people’s homes. People aren’t sitting closer to their 50-inch TVs, either; nor should they.

This isn’t to say Ultra HDTVs are pointless, just that resolution alone isn’t why you should buy them. 4K is an easy buzzword to sell, but it becomes much less of an important, tangible thing once you hit a certain threshold. (Things like motion blur, contrast, color gamut, and black uniformity are more significant, but harder to grasp.) If 4K is already breaking through that threshold today, something that adds four times the pixels will turn it to dust.

There’ll still be some cases where 8K might make sense — VR, perhaps, or just enormous displays — and there’s still plenty of room for today’s TVs improve. Just don’t expect NHK’s breakthrough to be a big boon for your living room anytime soon.
