TCL has launched its second-gen AiPQ Engine at IFA 2020. It is a platform rated to enhance this OEM's big-screen TVs, particularly those made with mini-LED or quantum-dot LED (QLED). The Engine allows for "real-time audiovisual optimization" based on the content to be reproduced. It is rated to distinguish between different types of AV media thanks to its machine-learned features.

TCL has come to IFA 2020 with claims that its next-gen mini-LED and QLED TVs will have even higher, more responsive picture and sound than ever before. This will apparently be due to their AiPQ Engine Gen 2, a new processor for this general form-factor that applies "machine-learning algorithms matched with vast knowledge in human visual perception" to content reproduction.

The second-gen AiPQ Engine is in fact touted to recognize various "content types and scenarios", such as night scenes, natural greenery and action. It automatically adjusts a given TV's settings so as to enhance these.

This is done on both an audio and visual basis; in addition, the Engine will also implement a "unique way" of detecting a screen's surroundings through the device's mics, and modulate the volume accordingly.

AiPQ Engine Gen 2 is also rated to upscale non-4K content according to its developer's expertise with this resolution, as well as with respect to color and contrast. It also features AI Super Resolution, which will handle frame-by-frame upscaling as necessary.

TCL did not mention which models may be equipped with this new processing platform, although it may come to the successors of the Quantum Dot Pro, 8- and perhaps even 6-series in the near future.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
