The following topics were highlighted by Sri Peruvemba, Chair of Marketing for SID, during the press and analyst presentation for Display Week 2020.
HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a standard for Ultra HD televisions with the potential to vastly improve the viewing experience. The goal is to maintain as much of the original image quality as possible, all the way through to the living room. Content is delivered either from an HDR-compatible source component, such as an Ultra HD 4K Blu-ray player, or streamed over the Internet from providers of HDR content.
8K TV has a screen with 7,680 horizontal and 4,320 vertical pixels for a total of approximately 33 million pixels. 8K TV is the highest resolution TV that has been released among UHD (ultra-high-definition) TVs. Such TVs show a sharper and more detailed picture quality.
Dual-Cell LCD technology, also known as ULED XD, takes two LCD panels and bonds them together. A processor splits the image into color gray scale information. The rear panel handles only luminance information, while the front panel handles color. The technology is meant to act as a cheaper alternative to OLED displays, with a significantly higher contrast ratio and competitive black levels.
MicroLED has the potential for the same perfect black levels as OLEDs but with no danger of burn-in. It can deliver higher brightness than any current display technology, wide-gamut excellent color and doesn’t suffer the viewing angle and uniformity issues of LDC.
