There’s also likely to be a big push to take 8K mass-market. The tech features four times as many pixels as 4K sets and times as many as 2019 p screens.
Tokyo’s Summer Olympics are being filmed in the “super hi-vision” format, but it’s still unclear which broadcasters will support it beyond Japan’s NHK and Italy’s Rai.
With little other 8K content, TV-makers are under pressure to prove that their upscaling technologies noticeably enhance lower-resolution Blu-Ray disks and video-streams. It can take considerable computing smarts to do this well, but several companies say they have trained “deep learning” systems that are capable of the task.
This involves using smaller light-emitting diodes than normal, to illuminate a screen’s color pixels. This allows there to be more distinct lighting zones, which in turn should reduce the blooming effect you sometimes get when light spills from bright objects in a scene into surrounding darker areas.
It won’t produce the deep blacks of OLED, where each pixel is self-illuminating. Nor will it match microLED tech, where the diodes are so small they can be assigned to the pixels on a 1: 1 basis.
But it should deliver an impressive HDR ( high dynamic range) picture at a relatively affordable price.
TCL has confirmed it will launch Mini-LED TVs at CES, and other brands may do so too, even if they call them by another name.
