Just yesterday manufacturers came out with 4K TV’s that were the latest thing. Now that the Wow has gone they are already dropping in price. Of course TV manufacturers are looking for the next Wow and they want it now! Thankfully there is no shortage of new technologies that the TV companies can entice us to pay top dollar for that new state of the art television. Here are a few things you’ll want to get especially if your name is Jones and you may want your neighbors to try and keep up with you.
The newer and better 8K TV is out with a picture, better then it has to be. Made by Sharp it will give you an image of 7680 X 4320 pixels. Over 38 million pixels on a single screen and about four times the resolution you’ll get on a 4K set. It has a massive 85 inch size screen and only costs $133,000. Hey good things cost a bit more. Their only issues is that there are no images broadcast at that resolution yet. But when they do you’ll be ready for it, just make sure you get an extended warranty with it.
Scientists have been working hard on producing good contrasts. HDR technology is able to produce whiter whites and blacker blacks. HDR technology is also able to produce a much wider range of colors which produces a higher contrast ratio. The whites are whiter and the blacks are much closer to pitch black than any LED or OLED TV. Aren’t you glad you waited a little longer last year.
Microsoft blew everyone’s mind when it came out with it’s Kinect Xbox One. Lots of other game developers jumped on that band wagon technology. The simple fact is that it’s just awesome. PrimeSense which is the company behind the gesture control for Kinect, is bringing the gesture controls to TV remotes. Before Apple bought PrimeSense, the company planed to come out with a TV equipped with gesture control technology. Of course now Apple has their eye on it for the same purpose. Apple will be calling it PrimeSense and adding it as a new feature on their set-top box or on their own TV. It will make your hand the remote and enable you to flick through channels, swipe your hand to selected shows, and raise or lower your hand to control volume. It may just make you look like a music conductor, we’ll just have to wait and see if it catches on.
