Booth 2043 – Though the Samsung booth is huge and packed with tons of great solutions, AV Nation’s Tim Albright was awestruck by Samsung’s 8K video display. Mario DiAntonio says that finding 8K content is a challenge, but Samsung is addressing that. The AI processor included within the display actually upscales 1080 or 4K content to make it 8K, so that the level of detail and color depth on the video screen is actually 8K equivalent content, even i the content wasn’t shot in 8K. Machine learning also measures the quality of the content, and then makes changes so that the next image is even better. The color scale, lumens, gray gradation are all measured and then the system changes its own algorithm to self-correct.
A single 8K panel allows for fewer failure points than a standard 2×2 video wall, DiAntonio points out. There is no alignment of panels or seams. He also mentions that command and control centers where detail matters is a great use case for this product, which is available now.
