Arrow TCL showcases 8K TVs



TCL 8K LCD TV

The Chinese company announced its first 8K TVs at the IFA show in Berlin. Together with Samsung, Sharp, and other companies, TCL will soon start pushing 8K LCD as a competitor to OLED TVs that continue to win market share in the premium segment.

TCL highlighted a 75-inch version that will have 832 dimming zones and 1000 nits peak brightness. Besides 8K resolution, it will support HDR, including the Dolby Vision format, and a wide color gamut (quoted as “157% BT.709”). The company said that it will deliver “ultra-vivid picture quality”.

Like Samsung, TCL will start beating the QLED drum and sell the TV as “8K QLED TV”. However, it uses an LCD panel with a quantum dot film. The TV will also be available in 65 and 55-inch sizes but TCL cautioned that the specifications may change slightly before launch.

Why introduce 8K TVs? Is that your question Rizzo? I would think that their actions would be obvious.

It's introduction will stir limited Buyer's interest I like to see it's results which would be CES showing where it will be at its peak presentation abilities ie 8K panel displaying dedicated 8K playing material from an 8K dedicated player. I'm sure the results would be amazing .......But at what cost ?
It would be a niche product because of the initial offerings would suffer from the lack and, therefore, the cost of producing 8K software ?

You forget - they sold plenty of 4K TVs before any software was available.

These 8K TVs have an AI in them that is far superior to what is in 4K TVs for up-sampling HD and 4K to 8K. Plus some will be 12 bit panels which can take full advantage of Dolby Vision. There will be no 12 bit 4K panels, only 10 bit.

The TV manufacturers no longer care about available "matching resolution" software. All they care about is producing high value (read: high profit) TVs. 4K TVs are not high profit anymore.
