The amazing TV display technology inside the Consumer Electronics Show 2020 (CES) this week made the glitzy signage outside on the Las Vegas Strip look like downtown Omaha.
Inside the Central Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sony, LG, Samsung, Sharp, Panasonic, TCL, Haier and others “put on a display,” literally, that dazzled CES attendees and should have integrators licking their collective chops at the potential for selling more video to their clients in 2020.
While it is impossible to summarize the TVs at the show in one article, CE Pro was able to shoot some video of many of the coolest displays for integrators to check out (see above).
Sony announced new Z8H 8K LED, A8H and MASTER Series A9S 4K OLED, and X950H and X900H 4K LED televisions.
Z8H models will be offered in 75- and 85-inch 8K LED; A8H in 55- and 65-inch versions; A9S in 48-inch OLED; X950H in 49-, 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch 4K LED; and X900H in 55-, 65-, 75- and 85-inch models.
The lineup features proprietary technologies previously only found in Sony’s MASTER Series models, the company notes. That includes aspects such as a “Netflix Calibrated Mode” that optimizes the HD, 4K and 4K HDR video content quality from the popular streaming service.
The 2020 QLED 8K lineup leverages the power of machine learning to optimize audio, video and smart capabilities. The line also offers a range of smart features so consumers can more easily interact with their home and mobile devices, and access new features like Samsung Health.
The new, flagship Q950TS QLED 8K TV is Samsung’s first TV to combine 8K picture with surround sound audio in an ultra-thin form factor. Its Q950 model is only 15 millimeters thin and features a completely flat back, which allows consumers to place the TV flush against the wall or display it on a media stand.
LG announced 13 new OLED models led by three new art-inspired GX Gallery series 4K Ultra HD TVs, Real 8K models and an all-new OLED screen size of 48 inches. The new OLED TVs, along with its new 8K and 4K LG NanoCell LCD TVs, use artificial intelligence-enabled features.
Meanwhile, Sharp Home Electronics Company of America (SHCA) returned to the exhibit floor at CES last year for the first time in four years and was back again in 2020. Its booth had a 120-inch 8K TV, dubbed the “world’s largest 8K,” and a 90-inch “see-through” TV that allowed attendees to interact with digital animation. The company’s booth was also loaded with an array of smart kitchen appliances, including a microwave drawer, oven, and air purifiers.
Panasonic‘s booth at the show primarily focused on digital projection. The company had a theme built around the Olympics with interactive digital platforms that showcased everything from ping pong to yoga.
