Forget 4K Now Comes 8K Super UHDTV by LG


IPS TV offerings will be the 65-inch UH9500 and 86-inch UH9550 and SUPER UHD TV 65-inch UH8500 and 75-inch UH8550.  The new version of LG will run on latest WebOS 3.0 software.  LG is also going to show its first production-ready 98-inch 8K SUPER UHD TV with plans to begin shipping in the second half of 2016, which is 16 times full HD resolutions.

What is 8K Resolution?
8K resolution or 8K UHD is the highest ultra high definition television (UHDTV) resolution to exist in digital television and digital cinematography. 8K refers to the horizontal resolution of these formats, which all are on the order of 8,000 pixels, forming the total image dimensions (7680×4320).

8K UHD has four times the horizontal and vertical resolution of the 1080p HDTV format, with sixteen times as many pixels overall.
