LG Electronics Starts Promoting 8K UHD Displays

While 4K UHD displays haven’t even been adopted properly due to the high prices, lack of content and sufficient performance of graphics adapters, LG goes further ahead and begins promoting the next step in resolution, the 8K UHD.

LG has reminded in a new press release that it is working on releasing 8K UHD 7680 x 4320 pixels displays, namely the 98-inch Color Prime Ultra HDTV presented at CES 2015. The company has also stated that it has improved the brightness of its 55-inch 8K UHD IPS panel boasting a resolution of 7680 x 4320 and 500nit by implementing M+ panel technology, adding textures to the existing RGB sub-pixel structure.

The company did not state when it will start mass production of the displays, but Apple has announced that they will be revealing an iMac 8K later this year. If it is an all-in-one PC or a standalone display, it remains to be seen when Apple decides to reveal its product. At the same time, Microsoft’s Windows 10 has already confirmed it will support 8K resolution displays.

While 8K sounds great at this stage, the market still lacks content in 8K. Currently, the only place that streams 8K resolution is NHK in Japan and the Technical Research Institute of Korean Broadcasting System. Even major Hollywood studios shoot movies in 6K and it will be a while until they adopt the 8K standard. Nonetheless, LG seems to be very optimistic about the future of 8K.
