Change is the only constant, and this is especially true when it comes to the television. In merely half a century since its inception, the TV has undergone multiple designs and technological changes that have added value to your TV-viewing experience. From CRT to LCD TVs and Micro-LED, the television has made the shift from luxury to an essential in most homes.
New-age TV technology revolves around the ‘smart’ interface which retail conglomerates have used to allow you to even make purchases through your TV set. The ability to shop for your groceries while you queue up a programme is a testament to the evolution of the television!
The quality of TVs has also transformed with the development and implementation of better broadcasting facilities. You can now enjoy crystal-clear picture quality even on a screen of 75 inches without any compromises whatsoever. Better still, these machines are also energy efficient, in keeping with the green movement. So, the question stands, can the television still improve?
Yes, it can and it is! The Consumer Electronics Show is a global technological convention held annually and it showcases the latest technological marvels that the world offers. Televisions, among other select few products, dominate this convention with their wow factor of big bright screens and ultra-thin bezels. Whether you’re in the market for a new TV or just a fan of new tech, here is a rundown of new technologies that will soon come to domestic shores too.
IMAX and IMAX Enhanced
IMAX is a program designed to provide a standard of audio and video quality. This invention revolutionized the cinema and home theatre space until the introduction of 4K. 4K TVs opened the gateway to higher resolutions, which demanded better sound and image from content. Naturally, with the upgrade in content, the format for its delivery needed change as well, and so IMAX Enhanced came to be. Any TV carrying the IMAX Enhanced tag will house the very best technology for maximum viewing quality.
OLED TV and its rollable variant
A hot topic in the television space is the OLED design. A major drawback of LCD television sets is the need for a backlight. The backlight is always on and so when scenes require true black, the TV bezel tries to block out the light. However, some of it invariably manages to leak through. This causes blacks to seem grey and paints an inaccurate picture. OLEDs don’t have that problem as they are individually lit and function independently from one another.
It is through this ingenious invention that we have screens that can now retract back into a tiny cube on the floor. The rollable OLED screen by LG is a beautiful design as it also features 3 views you can set the TV in: Full View, Line View, and Zero View. If you’re in the market for an OLED screen, consider getting it through the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network. You can get the LG Super UHD TV at a monthly EMI of just Rs.6,999!
8K television for your viewing pleasure
With a pixel count of 33 million, 8K TVs offer a great picture sharpness and detail in comparison to the 8 million pixels of a 4K TV. The 2019 launch of this model may be a bit premature as content for 8K is very rare and won’t make it to you anytime soon. While manufacturers say that 8K is just the natural progression in terms of technological advancement, broadcasters are still struggling to meet the bandwidth requirements of 4K transmission. So, its safe to say that you may have to wait a while to enjoy 8K in all its glory.
Just as Dolby Vision promised that the HDR technology they delivered would redefine visual clarity, competitors including Panasonic, 20th Century Fox, and Samsung innovated the HDR10+. Being an open standard, the cost to implement it will be significantly less in comparison to Dolby Vision. With Samsung in the corner for HDR10+, it is very likely that this will soon be the standard setup for all the television sets manufactured by the tech giant. As of today, Dolby Vision is a lot more popular as it was the best performing popular format. However, HDR10+ will see the spotlight when TV and movie content is developed with this technology at its heart.
Micro LED TVs of the future
The tech geniuses at work in the Samsung labs have come up with technology that will dwarf OLED and QLED. Even as both of these were recently launched, it seems that innovation doesn’t take a day off. Micro-LED TVs, in essence, do the job that an OLED screen would do, just better. The lack of an organic factor significantly improves the lifespan, which Samsung predicts will be over 11 years of non-stop use while being power-efficient. While this technology isn’t out for the public as yet, when it does, it will cost a fortune. The reason being that for a TV set that can display at 4K resolution would require 25 million tiny LEDs to be perfectly aligned and calibrated, which as of today is a struggle even for robots.
The fact that you can access all of this new technology is exciting, isn’t it? However, all new and improved tech comes at a steep price point. You can be a smart TV owner without putting a dent in your savings by simply purchasing through the Bajaj Finserv EMI Network using the EMI Network Card. The EMI feature makes owning cutting-edge technology affordable while allowing you to experience the best of the market, such as the LG TV, Sony TV, Haier TV and Lloyd TV. Here, you can buy LED TVs starting from EMIs of Rs.1,999.
