With 4K it has been a revolution in television, with several new technologies that accompany and enhance the image quality. I tell you which ones will come in the latest models. TVs do not stay calm and to improve our sales and encourage consumerism (yes, we have a weakness for technology), year to year show news . Some come to stay – as might be the 4K – and others may have more pain than glory as it did with 3D. Anyway, this year is interesting , with amazing tvs resolutions and the growing struggle of OLED LCD vs best. So let’s see what are the new technologies that will dominate the tvs and the next coming years.

new technology

4K Resolution 1:

With more and larger TVs, where 32 inches and look like small, upscale is the logical step, and now we move from Full HD 1080p 4096 x 2160 resolution 4K (although in most TV, you says Ultra HD and 3840 x 2160 ). This means more than 8 million pixels on the screen with what you get 4 times more detail . Clearly, the human eye has its limits, so the difference is noticeable mainly in screens larger than 50-60 inches and by sitting nearby.

All manufacturers adopted this format and now all are 4K more ambitious proposals, and seeing that is a useful thing , surely it will become a standard in the future . Of course, for this we need first a lot of content, and truth, for now there is so much. Some important series like Breaking Bad, are coming to 4K with Netflix and Amazon Instant Video. Even Sony has its own player 4K where you can buy movies and download them. It’s slow, but the 4K race seems quite firm. But I see no replacing Full HD up within a few years .

2- curved TVs:

The curved TVs are the new fashion , and all manufacturers are launching a model. The aim of these screens is curved inward better suit your view, which is curved. With this, you get a better sense of immersion and contrast, because the curve focuses light where you’re watching.

At first it may seem ideal, but there are some problems that make me DOUBT much of his success . First, things are not going well when you’re with other people in the room and some have to do with cost, as the unfortunate could see the picture a bit distorted, which can even fatigue. In addition, the reflection generated is annoying. Of course the price issue, because for a model of 55 ” have to spend about € 1,400. Nobody has a crystal ball, but that of the curved TV reminds me a bit to 3D is not finished settling. Time will tell.

3- Quantum Dots:

The quantum dots could be the future of LCD TV , enhancing colors and contrast, a weak point of these compared to OLED TVs. But … what are Quantum Dots?

They are very small crystals that can produce light when given power, according to size. The trick is to have a layer of “Quantum Dots” LED light on the TV backlit, filtering and producing more natural than the current colors. This light LED backlit TVs, usually blue, is to blame for that blacks are not as good. Quantum Dots, to absorb, avoid influencing badly on the image.

It is a technology that seeks to bring a little color quality of the LCD to OLED, since the latter are very expensive to manufacture (a non low OLED tv 2,000 €, and LG is almost the only thing that makes ) .In short, the palette must improve by at least 30%.
