Some of LG's 2020 TVs are set to go beyond the 8K Ultra HD criteria
The CTA has laid down "strict requirements" for what constitutes 8K Ultra HD, a spec that may be the most hyped and touted among panel-makers in the coming year. LG has announced that some of its upcoming TVs have "exceeded" these criteria. Therefore, they will be known as "real 8K" screens on their launch.
8K Ultra HD is a designation based on measurement guidelines requiring that a given panel's resolution must meet a 50% minimum contrast modulation (CM) threshold. In addition, the device in question must exhibit a minimum of 33 million live pixels. These criteria are in turn based on the 8K threshold set by the International Committee for Display Metrology, and are also likely to influence similar definitions established by other CTA-like bodies.
Therefore, LG now feels it is in a position to state that some of their panels at least meet this designation. Accordingly, they will bear the relevant CTA badge on their packaging and marketing material, giving the consumer something to look out for in the future. Thus far, the OEM asserts that its 2020 Signature OLED and NanoCell line-up will include variants with a quality that is superior to 8K Ultra HD.
