What’s the difference between 4K and 8K TVs?
Difference in resolution
4K and 8K all refer to the size of the resolution, which represents the number of pixel points that can be carried in the picture. The larger the resolution, the more pixel points there are, the more details of the object that can be expressed, and the more detailed and clear the picture becomes.
What is the difference in the number of pixels between 4K and 8K? 4K has 3840*2160 pixels, which is equal to about 8 million, while 8K has a whopping 7680*4320 pixels, which is equal to about 30 million, or about 4 times more than 4K, a difference that is obviously huge and can be felt by the average person’s naked eye.
This is only the difference in resolution, and many TV manufacturers are now also optimising and upgrading parameters such as colour gamut, colour depth and screen refresh rate in the development of their 8K products, enabling a more comprehensive improvement in picture quality.
This also indirectly shows that when we buy an 8K TV we should remember not to focus only on the resolution, the 8K screen is only one part of the TV viewing experience upgrade, the picture quality parameters beyond the screen, picture processing technology, sound quality, intelligence are all important aspects.
8K also achieves a greater level of advancement in terms of color depth and color gamut. 8K specifies a color depth of 12bit and is capable of displaying 68.48 billion colors, 64 times that of 4K. This enables 8K TV images to have increased resolution in a three-dimensional sense, with a smoother and more natural colour gradient.
Not only that, but 8K TVs are also a great improvement over 4K TVs when it comes to HDR technology. HDR 4K TVs enable clear dark details and highlight details to be seen. In contrast, 8K TVs use Enhanced HDR, the second generation of High Dynamic Contrast Ratio technology, which greatly highlights the contrast between light and dark details and enhances the level of detail in the picture, so the picture of an 8K TV feels more deep and realistic.
8K technology has opened up a new era in TV technology, with a qualitative improvement in the level of detail of the picture. Although 8K TVs are not yet fully popular, many brands have already started mass production of 8K TVs. It is believed that in the near future, 8K TVs will be popular in every household, leading everyone into a new world of audio-visual.
