Samsung has been involved in the development of the new TV technology since the first QLED 8K in 2018. 8K refers to the extremely high image resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels, which totals over 33 million pixels. These ensure that even the smallest details can be finely resolved and sharply displayed, even on large TVs. This means that the resolution of an 8K TV is four times higher than that of 4K UHD TVs and even 16 times higher than that of Full HD TVs. In order to also display lower-resolution content at 8K level, Samsung uses its own 8K AI upscaling technology. A Quantum AI processor can also be used to upscale 4K or HD content to 8K. This makes the TV experience vivid and immersive – the audience can immerse themselves deeply in the film world. With the cooperation between Samsung and Sky on the occasion of the third “Das Boot” season, Samsung is now opening a new chapter in its TV offering: a true blockbuster series in native 8K.
