8K is coming fiercely, and the era of 8K has arrived. Is this really the case? In fact, I don’t think so. 8K looks very beautiful, but it will take some time for it to become popular. 4K will still be the mainstream in the next few years. Why do you say this way? Because the development of 8K has encountered a lot of assistance, not only to solve technical problems, but also many factors.
8K TVs are too expensive
First of all, the price of 8K is too high. For 8K TVs, if you want to fully enjoy the ultimate experience brought by 8K, then the large screen is a must, large screen + 8K resolution, and the screen is a major cost point of large screen TVs, achieving 8K resolution The cost of color TVs has increased geometrically, and the prices have naturally risen, making it unbearable for consumers.
In 2017, Sharp released the first consumer-grade 8K TV, and the price of 68888 yuan made many people discouraged. In 2019, Samsung launched a 55-inch 8K QLED TV, its price close to 2W is not low. Although there are more and more 8K TV products in recent years, the market sales are not large due to the high price.
The lack of 8K video content
In fact, 4K TVs are basically popular now, but most of the content we watch on 4K TVs is still 2K. The lack of content is a problem that users have to pay attention to. When the 4K content system is not sound, let alone 8K content. Currently, there is no 8K ecosystem on the market. Buying an 8K TV to watch 2K videos and a small amount of 4K content is very cost-effective. Without massive 8K film sources, even the most powerful TVs cannot give consumers a perfect movie-watching experience.
Network transmission limit
In fact, when it comes to 4K content, content providers will say that I don’t know this. I have 4K high-definition content, but due to network transmission limitations, you need to break the transmission bottleneck to enjoy high-definition content. While having 4K content 4 times the definition, the volume of 8K has also expanded 4 times, which is not a small challenge for the current network environment.
However, with the advent of the 5G era, the network transmission speed will be further improved. For 8K TVs, such network conditions make the transmission of 8K LED TV content faster, and direct viewing will not cause stalls. But it will take some time for 5G to actually land.
High hardware configuration requirements
The 8K resolution is 7680X4320, which is 4 times that of 4K. Such a huge amount of graphics computing is unbearable for the existing graphics cards. The production of 8K video requires the support of high-definition shooting equipment and the ecological support of the entire industry chain, which are currently immature. And it is also facing the problem of transmission. Although 5G is about to be commercialized, this will be a few years from now.
Although it is too early to talk about 8K's ability to bring impetus to the color TV industry, in the future, the importance of 8K LED TV in the future will far exceed 4K. In our lives, medical care, education, work and other fields, the speed of 8K popularization And the coverage will be unimaginable. However, there is still a long way to go, and there are still many problems to be solved.
