CES 2018: ​Samsung to show off AI-applied 8K QLED TV





Samsung Electronics will show off a new 85-inch QLED TV that uses artificial intelligence technology to convert low resolution videos into 8K at CES this week, the company has said.

The new model of Samsung's flagship TV line will automatically correct the brightness, contrast, and blurring of low resolution videos using the optimal filter to convert it to high resolution.

The company will use a database of millions of videos it studied that allowed the process to be achieved. There is also no gradation loss that conventionally happens in the conversion process, the South Korean tech giant added.

The technology also automatically optimizes sound; for example, in live sports matches the sound of spectators will increase, and for music concerts the sound from the stage will be optimized.

Samsung said while 8K TVs exist, the amount of 8K content available didn't back them up, but this technology will overcome such obstacles.

The company said 8K QLED TVs that uses the technology will come in over 65-inch sizes and go on sale in the second half of this year.

Rival LG is set to show off an 88-inch 8K OLED display at the tradeshow.

Samsung will also reportedly unveil a 150-inch Micro LED TV for the first time at CES
