“People have stopped buying and exchanging mobile phones. Everyone spends more time at home and less in business meetings, they want to enjoy a better experience at home. And that is why the purchase of 4K televisions has grown”, says María Rúa Aguete and anticipates a strong sale of 4K-HDR televisions for the upcoming Black Friday (Black Friday)
Rua Aguete is one of the directors of the multinational OMDIA, which for the second consecutive year will make the opening report of the 4K HDR Summit 2020.
In the same vein, OMDIA’s principal investigator, Paul Gray, considered the world’s leading 4K and 8K analyst, predicts that “despite the coronavirus, 4K TV sales will continue to be very strong in all markets. Although I am not so optimistic about the 8K”.
While the head of research in 8K at Samsung, Richard Moreton, is optimistic about the 8K televisions of the Korean multinational, with four times more pixels than 4K and 16 times more than HD.
“Artificial intelligence and its“ Scale Net ”program, which come standard on Samsung’s 8K televisions, offer a unique experience. Content originally generated in HD or 4K is automatically offered in 8K ”, Moreton defends.
