Televisions have come a long way since the early days of small black-and-white screens with vertical hold issues. Over the last several decades, each new TV technology rollout has promised the best resolution and clearest picture that would offer you the best solution to your television-watching needs. Then a few months later, the next best television would be suddenly introduced, making your old new one obsolete, or at least not the best on the market at the time.

High definition technology that was once reserved for top of the line television sets in the most exclusive homes is now standard with the industry taking the concept to the next step with each new iteration of the best television resolution, picture, and audio capabilities. In 2012, LG released the first 4K television that promised and delivered a resolution that far exceeded its 1080P HD predecessor, increasing the pixels from 1920 x 1080 to a whopping 3840 x 2160. Right on the heels of 4K, the industry doubled the resolution sharpness with new 8K televisions featuring 7680 x 4320 pixels.


The television industry is starting to run out of superlative descriptors for the most recent advancements and improvements. At one time, high definition was the ultimate in television viewing experience – Full HD, Ultra HD, Super Hi-Vision. Whatever you call it, 8K television technology uses over 33 million pixels to form the clearest picture ever imagined for a television set. The best way to wrap your mind around it is to visualize four 4K televisions placed in a 4×4 grid.


Ultra HD 4K televisions are so clear and dynamic that you may be questioning why you would need to upgrade to 8K technology now. One main reason people are looking into upgrading from 4K to 8K is size. More people are buying bigger televisions for their homes, with the standard going from 28 inches to where a 55-inch TV is pretty common, and now 65-inch and above is where the industry is headed, and 8K television is ready to accommodate that trend.

4K HDR TVs on the market go up to 85 inches and it is in these larger sizes where the 8K technology will make its biggest impact. Adding pixels allows for greater detail in larger screens, which will be available with 8K technology up to 98 inch screens.
