8K refers to the latest and highest-resolution standard for content creation, distribution and television displays that enables over 33 million pixels of resolution, which is 4 times sharper than the UHD / 4K standard. With a growing number of 8K TVs now in the market from several leading TV brands that meet the 8K Association’s certification program standards, along with emerging sources of native 8K content, there is an increasing consumer interest in discovering more about 8K and why 8K resolution is a perfect fit for big-screen TVs.
Along with the newly launched consumer education web site, the 8K Association is preparing a “State of 8K” webinar for press and industry professionals to provide an update on the progress made in 8K deployments and the remaining technical and business milestones needed to complete the full roll-out of the 8K ecosystem. With insights and technical input from all parts of the 8K production, distribution, and display segments, the “State of 8K” webinar will serve as a tool to educate industry professional and define the remaining work that members of the 8K Association and others will need to complete before 8K is universally available.
