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.

AudioControl Debuts Pair of Concert Ultra HD 4K Receivers

AudioControl Debuts Pair of Concert Ultra HD 4K Receivers | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


AudioControl just announced a pair of new Ultra HD 4K receivers.

The Concert AVR-6 and Concert AVR-8 are both designed to complement a 4K setup.

The AVR-8 boasts 200 watts to each of its seven channels into 4 ohms, while the AVR-6 drops that down to 100 watts per channel with 8 ohms.

Each receiver also offers 3D support, seven HDMI inputs, two ARC-compatible HDMI outputs, and several other connection options. Also worth noting is that each component can be configured for a 7.1 system or as a 5.1 system, with the two remaining channels serving a second zone.

Besides the Ultra HD 4K and 3D video pass-through and upscaling, both receivers have proprietary auto room setup and room correction with equalization.

Technicolor and Marseilles Demo "4K Image Certified" Upscaling

Technicolor and Marseilles Demo "4K Image Certified" Upscaling | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Last month, I wrote about Technicolor's "4K Image Certification" program, which is designed to identify and recognize products that excel at upscaling 1080p to near-native UHD quality.

This is critical for the burgeoning UHD market, since there will be very little native-4K content available to consumers for quite some time.

Yesterday, I got to see a demonstration of the first video-processing chip to receive the Technicolor certification, the VTV-1222 from Marseille Networks, and I have to say, I was very impressed.

SONY BDP-S790 Blu-ray Player with 4K Support

Product of the Year, Awards 2013 – a second win for this brilliant movie machine.

There’s no doubt a feature like the 4K upscaling will only appeal to those who have deep pockets or who want to consider themselves futureproofed should a flotilla of 4K screens arrive in the near future.

But looking past that, the Sony BDP-S790 is still a superb Blu-ray player, positively revelling in great features and excellent picture performance. Sony has definitely got a winner on its hands.
