The world has been evolving at a very fast rate and so is our Television. There was a time when we used to only get to watch TV in two colors which are black and white. In old times TV video quality was very bad.
But now things have been a lot different. Television video quality has increased 10 times what it was before. Earlier there were just small Television sets but now there is a Television which has a size of more than 50 inches.
Television was just used to watch movies and news but now they are used for playing games and streaming your favorite web series with applications such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and many more other. Now they even give the option to have a theatre-like experience such as a mini home theatre where there are speakers and a big Television set.

Wide Color Gamut, Full Array Dimming, Picture Quality
This type of technology is much better than other gametes such as sRGB, cause the colors captured by sRGB are less and do not look real to the eyes.
HDR increases the brightness of the image whereas WCG makes increases the color (red becomes much redder, green becomes greener)
Not only this but it makes the image’s overall clarity in terms of both focus and contrast when the image becomes sharper. Pixel Contrast Booster is intended to augment the OLED board’s differentiation all through the shading range.
X-tended Dynamic Range PRO innovation depends on a blend of cutting-edge backdrop illumination control and video picture investigation.
Developers try their very best to make the image or video life-alike which helps them to capture the user’s mind to a full extent.
Al on the rise
We know how Artificial has changed the whole world. The most difficult tasks are being done by artificial intelligence with the back of the hand. Numerous technologies surprise and so Artificial intelligence was one of them
When TV interacts with you
When no one in their wildest dream thought about talking to a Television which is now made possible by Artificial intelligence.
LG has its ThinQ which interacts with the user, collects data, analyses it, and then improves itself to fully be interactive with the needs of a user, isn’t it amazing how your television self-learn everything
Samsung has its A. I voice which is known as Bixby first it was only available on a mobile phone, but they port it to the television too. It is much greater than ThinQ as it can control the whole TV, give you awesome suggestions or the new web series or TV show you want to watch
Your low-quality images will also look like 4k one
We all hate to see when the television is Hi-Tech and all, but the picture quality is bad, artificial intelligence has solved this problem too.
Using artificial upscaling the picture quality is improved using an algorithm present in the processor to make it sharper and more various edits so that it comes out as a 4k image
This technology is present in Sony Television known as Picture Processor X1 which intelligently enhances the sharpness of the image.
True Colors To Your Eyes
Whether we watch a match or just randomly watch the news we always want a crystal clear photo age in front of us. As years go by companies have been pushing hard to make this experience better.
OLED is a technology that uses organic sheets to emit light. In these organic thin sheets are stacked up between metal cathode and glass substrate which are known as conductors. It is also called organic for a reason which is that they are made up of carbon and hydrogen.
LG released its two processors known as Alpha 7 and Alpha 9 which pair perfectly with OLED displays
Alpha has a ton of features. Firstly, it has a feature called A.I Picture which smartly detects the picture quality imperfection and solve them on hand by enhancing the sharpness and brightness of the picture,
It has another feature known as A.I sound tuning in which if one person is watching television then the television speaker will optimize it so that all the sound waves will be focused particularly on him only.
QLED AND OLED work very differently.
Some sources also confirmed it is said that it is easy to make a QLED display than OLED and it is cost-effective too. There is much variation to it. Some of Samsung’s televisions come up with QLED and 4K.
The best part about this technology it is much brighter and has color detailing at a very top-notch level than OLED. QLEDS is a fresh new technology that is still in WIP ( Work-In-Progress), many more things are to be discovered from this technology, but it has got a promising future, it gained much popularity because it is a mixture of its own features and OLED technology features.
Clear, Crisp, Clarity
In this high-end world, people want high detail video quality on their television screens.
4K is 4000 pixels of resolution towards the display, whereas HDR means High Dynamic range which means that the details a picture will be much sharper and have a great amount of contrast. When these both meet, they make a 4K HDR panel.
You get am amazing picture quality at high pixels. Due to HDR, it gives a good amount of contrast between lighter and darker areas. 4K provides a good resolution to HDR processed pictures which gives maximum brightness without hurting your eyes.
HDR 10 V/s HDR 10+
With HDR 10 it is much more enhanced as the brightness goes up to 1000 nits which shows the true colors of a picture, plus there is reduced noise and blur effects level on his
On the other hand, with HDR10+(it’s made by Samsung) the brightness goes up to 4000 nits which is 4 times more than, plus there is increased contrast and sharpness level too.
The main difference lies in the metadata. Metadata is the information fed by the TV to the content we are watching and how to operate that.
In HDR 10 there is static metadata which means if the information once fed will not be changed after.
This is where HDR 10+ got an advantage. It has dynamic metadata which means if you watch a movie on an HDR 10+ COMPATIBLE tv your Television will change its parameters such as sharpness, brightness, contrast, and many more things according to the scene.
UHD or Ultra High Definition is known as simple 4K which is at 3840 x 2160 pixels resolution. It is the starting stone for every new technology coming into the market.
8K: A New Pathway to The Future
Now, 8K has around 8000 pixels resolution which is nearly double of 4K resolution. Now, 8K brought a whole new level of display.8K images were much sharper people could see little too few details even in the zoomed image. In a zoomed image the pixels can get blurred which is often seen in 4K resolution processed images but not in 8K processed images.
Due to the increasing size of the screens of television, 4K display wasn’t working as effectively as they should but 8k was required for it. 8K cameras also have come into the market some companies who offer 8K recording are RED Cameras.
The image processing and editing take a very lot of time. You need a high-end spec device to process it, the image size of 8K can start from 50MB which is 35% more than the 4K image size.
Companies like Samsung and Sony are trying to change their focus from 4k to 8k because it is the future. Sill 8K is just an 11$ million-dollar industry. Not everyone is buying it and 8k is too in WIP (work In Progress) and many more new things are to be yet discovered.
Keep Calm and Listen To A.I. Sound
Now sound acts as a most important element in manufacturing a television, because a good speaker can add a very important ingredient in making a great watching experience.
DTS TruSurround Technology
It offers features like TruBass, TruSurround which have become an important part of our modernized television.
TruSurround uses a 5.1 channel in which it intelligently lets off sound from the speaker that can be heard by many people. Also, the most peculiar thing about it is that some of the sounds are lost in the air when the signal is transmitted from a satellite to Television, but TruSound intelligently recovers the lost sound with the help of its algorithms like magic.
Dolby atmo promises to bring a sweet and crisp sound to the video. The best part about it is that it covers the whole room area as the conventional speakers didn’t.
Dolby’s vision automatically calibrates the screen display suited best for you like watching a movie needs a bit different resolution and watching a sports channel needs a different resolution.
Acoustic Surface Technology
The innovation done by SONY in this makes other sound systems out of the league. Now it has launched Acoustic Surface Audio Plus and Acoustic Multiplayer Audio.
A. I Upscaling
Now using artificial intelligence picture quality is increased by increasing brightness and sharpness of it. But you must be thinking about why it is in this section. A. I upscaling is not only limited to picture quality it is also is for the sound quality
Using A. I a television can sense how many people are sitting in a room and it will configure an optimum volume of sound to be provided.
There was a time when we used to connect USB pen drives to television sets to see the downloaded movies on the television. Now there is no need for wire or pen drives with just a few taps you can get connected to your television.
One is the T-cast provided by iFFALCON TV here you just have to download an app of theirs on your phone. And turn it on to make sure your television is also being turned on. With just a few taps voila you are connected to your Television. You can even launch apps directly on Television using the app launcher provided by iFFALCON. The IPQ Engine is a simple mobile app useful for ensuring better performance by the best tuning.
Similar SConnect or SmartConnect by Samsung does the same thing in their television model.
There is a 4-way cast by Vu company in which you can directly connect 4 devices at the same time.
When Television Gets Smarter Than You
Television is indeed getting smarter and smarter day by day. Other technologies change the way how we see the television but his piece of technology change how we interact with our television.
Using an operating system to run a Television made it effective and efficient. Android operating system installed in a television opens an endless gate of features, that someone cannot imagine on a Television. Android was mostly for smartphones and other small devices. Its peculiar feature which made it grow was that it was cheap and open sources meaning someone who is a developer can access files in the Android operating system and can change them the way he/she likes.
So big companies like Samsung, Sony, and many more introduced the android operating system into their television to make it much more flexible and can cater to all the needs of a customer.
After this the streaming era took place, it grows rapidly in which streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and many more saw a new variety of audiences who want to binge-watch their favorite web series but cannot see on small size screens such as their smartphone, iPad or even laptop. So, they made their apps and place them in the Android TV operating system. Now it is estimated that more than 30% of people watch their shows on Television as it gives a wonderful experience to them.
A Structure Thinner Than A Matchbox
In old times television thickness was more than 20 to 30 meters, which never made them look good in the living room. Every item in a living room is cleaned and maintained symmetrically but using this kind of Thick wide TV brings an ugly vibe even if all items in a living room are perfect.
After that Bezel-Less structure television was made. In this, the extra layer of black padding on the Tv is removed and the screen is inserted there. It benefits as the screen ratio has been increased with proper context. Plus, an aesthetic look is achieved. The best part about this is that it makes the television width thin which looks appealing to the consumer. In the making of the bezel-less screen, a durable glass screen is made which undergoes many tests so that the failure rate is very low. With bezel-less television, everyone swings their head over it to see it.
Samsung up the game by bringing FRAME Television. In this not only do you get to see a digital display but also an art display.
So, when you turn on the television it will act as television but when you will it transform into your favorite painting. This is done to make television even more useful when it is off too.
Even it is said that Apple has been testing new television Technology which is going to fully A.I (Artificial Intelligence) powered. in this you will not control the Television will control you, it will sense the motions and temperature of your body and then recommend a show over it.
This can be helpful as sometimes when we are in a state of anger and we watch a show with violence we get intrigued by it and our anger rises much more which is not beneficial then. It’s said that in the future cable will not work only internet-based television will work most of the television will be applications or apps based. There will be an app for everything.
This information is evident as of now concept television is becoming transparent and super thin. This all marks that the future will have endless opportunities to be explored in technology, especially in the television Industry. But as technology is rising, we shouldn’t be dependent on it as we make and run the technology, technology never runs us.
