Samsung 8K QLED TV Uses Artificial Intelligence to Upscale SD Content to 8K Resolution

Samsung 8K QLED TV Uses Artificial Intelligence to Upscale SD Content to 8K Resolution | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

 

You’ve probably read how artificial intelligence can be applying to modify photos, either repair them, or change the weather in photos from sunny to rainy, and vice versa.

 

Samsung unveiled an 85″ 8K QLED TV right before CES 2018, which should be news by itself, but that I found really intriguing is the TV’s artificial intelligence capabilities that will upscale standard and other resolution content to 8K resolution.

 

The TV will take SD, Full HD or 4K sources runs it through machine learning algorithm to re-create details, reduce noise, and restore edges to bring them back to 8K picture quality. Not your usual “dumb” upscaling.

The reason could be due to the curvature radius of 4200mm chosen by Samsung, which does seem like the ideal sweet spot.


So if you’re wondering if bendy tellies are ideal for the living room, the answer is a resounding yes.

Michael Mazo's curator insight, December 13, 2014 2:54 PM

As a consumer of electronics a TV is a must have. With the way advances in television has grown we always look to get the most bang for our buck. And with the onset of UHD TV's not everyone can afford one but with a competitive market this price will steadily decrease. Song and Samsung have been the staple of a dueling rivalry in the field of technology. One claims to be better than the other and so forth and so on. But what really makes a company stand out is their connection to their consumers in ways that are simply revolutionary. It could come at an expense but to launch a product into a market that has never been seen before adds emphasis to the growth and capability of the company

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Samsung has made a habit of demoing some off-the-wall television designs at CES, and this year is no different.


The strangest new design is a wild 85-inch prototype that the company's simply calling the "Bendable TV."


The demo unit switched between a flat panel and a curved screen at the touch of a button, with a mechanical system pushing out the edges of the screen to achieve the transformation.


It's eerie to see a 85-inch television bend before your eyes, and while it makes for a very impressive tech demo, we aren't sure what Samsung plans to do with the TV.

4K Ultra HD television adoption will happen faster than anticipated

4K Ultra HD television adoption will happen faster than anticipated | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it

Despite being tempted by a number of great deals on televisions during Black Friday, I’ve already made up my mind that the next set I purchase will be 4K Ultra HD compatible.


4K Ultra HD televisions are expected to be the next big thing in home entertainment.


Unlike the short-lived 3D fad, 4K televisions will deliver real value with four times the resolution of current HD sets that populate the majority of households in the US.


Samsung is leading the way as it has increased its 4K television lineup from just three models last year to 10 this year, ranging in size from 50 inches up to the 110-inch monster that was on display at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.


Industry experts predict that just under half a million 4K sets will be sold this year versus just 60,000 during 2013.

Samsung is betting big on ultra-high-definition televisions.

So big, in fact, that HS Kim, executive vice president of Samsung's visual display business, is predicting that ultra-HD sets will soon dominate the consumer market, eclipsing HD TVs -- despite high prices and a lack of ultra-HD content.

"I think it's pretty obvious that consumers are going to choose UHD TVs," Kim said during an interview with The Times at International CES in Las Vegas this week.

"The only question is how affordable the UHD TVs are going to be; and as technology advances, the prices will drop.

So I think it's very highly likely that consumers will choose UHD TVs, and I think this will happen faster than anticipated."
