The 4K standard is gaining momentum, but consumer electronics manufacturers are not going to stop it and are already working on receivers that display 8K images. What’s more, the first one will be on sale by the end of October this year.
The drop in prices of 4K televisions, the announcement of more than 50 titles on the Ultra HD Blu-ray and the launch of about 200 channels by 2020, will make more and more buyers of such receivers. But manufacturers do not intend to subdue the standard Ultra HD and are already announcing 8K TVs. What’s more, the first model will appear later this year.
During the January CES show, Sharp was one of several companies that presented 8K displays and will be one of the first to introduce these products to the market. On October 30th announced the launch of the 85-inch model LV-85001, which will cost 133 thousand dollars. This is not a TV, but a monitor designed for professional use.
The product displays an image at 7680 x 4320 pixels and uses IGZO technology. To watch the material in this quality, all four HDMI inputs should be used to connect to the source of the source, since the data transfer level is sufficient.
