8K resolution

The absence of content can be blamed on consumers’ inability to display an interest…

8K TVs haven’t yet been sold on the market. According to a recent report from Media, a market analyst, the chances are that they won’t do this anytime soon. Media.

The sales from 8K TVs were only 0.15 percent of the total television sales in 2021, lower than the 350,000 mark globally. Samsung made the highest profit of approximately 65 percent, 227,500 units, and the bulk went to China.

The market picked up as we approached Christmas. The market saw 95,500 TVs sold with 8K resolution in the year’s final quarter, about 15,000 more than the previous quarter.

However, eight-kilo TVs aren’t enough to be considered.

Omnia believes it’s because people are “skeptical” about 8K televisions because of the lack of content and the increase in the popularity of premium 4K TVs. It’s even predicted that “just 2.7 million households worldwide” will have an 8K television by 2026.

“We don’t find any compelling demand in the market for further development of 8K-based service. In Japan, where there are 8K channels (from NHK), uptake has been minimal. “

The dim outlook of Omnia is very unlike the optimistic forecasts made earlier. Just 12 months ago, Strategy Analytics HTML2claimed that the television sales could exceed ” 72 million in 2025,” and the prices – which were relatively high in some instances will “inevitably decline.”

The positive news is that low-cost 8K TVs are forthcoming. In June 2021, TCL’s 8K Mini LED TV will be available for sale at 2199 (around 3000 dollars or PS1600) to buy the 65-inch model and 2999 (around PS2200/AU$3800) for the 75-inch model.

There’s no doubt that 8K content will be fragile and slow on the surface. BT Sport recently aired its first 8K broadcast live, but there’s no evidence that an eight-channel sports station is close to launching. The search for content that is 8K-friendly is expected and will continue into the coming years.
