Gone are the days when a fancy television was considered a luxury. Prolific research and development along with improvements in technology and changes in the way we consume content and entertainment have contributed towards making TVs a necessity in every home. Every year, TV brands offer better technology and 2019 is no different.
With the first glimpse of 2019’s futuristic flat screen TVs in January at the Consumer Electronics Show 2019, the expectations of having a variety of feature-packed TVs have increased. The constant competition between Samsung TVs, LG TVs, Haier TVs, Lloyd TVs, Sony TVs, MI TVs, and others has also contributed to big reveals in both the display and features. Here’s a list of cutting-edge TV technology that you can expect in 2019 and 2020.
Giant TV screens
A 42-inch TV is no more considered king-size, and a screen of 55 inches and 65 inches are no more rare possessions. In fact, industry experts opine that large screen TVs are set to conquer a larger share of the market. The falling prices of these models is one of the major reasons for this boost. In 2019, you can expect models exceeding even 80 inches and going up to 98 inches!
Though 4K TVs are advertised as having the HDR capability, you will never truly know what a true high dynamic range experience is until you experience it at home. The 4K TVs selling at lower prices don’t have the required levels of black or brightness or the video-processing ability to give you the maximum HDR effect.
In 2019, an increased number of manufacturers will offer TVs with enhanced brightness and shadow detail that is required to make HDR better. With more choices, you’ll also enjoy the best deals!
Many modern-day TVs have remote controls with a microphone. This makes voice interaction possible. With this facility, you can easily adjust the volume and change channels without moving a muscle. Some TVs with voice control also allow you to search for content quickly and easily.
Manufacturers this year are most likely to upgrade their smart TVs by using high-ended digital voice assistants like Alexa and Google Assistant to add more convenience to your voice experience.
Certain brands like LG TV and Samsung, who have their own AI platforms called ThinQ and Bixby respectively, are also set to make their devices compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant. Some TVs will also include voice-activated technology that makes controlling other compatible devices like smart speakers and home appliances possible.
Arrival of 8K TVs
The year 2019 promises the launch of the highly-awaited 8K TVs, which feature four times more clarity than the 4K variants. This gives you sharper images and video quality thanks to higher resolution. The features of 8K TVs justify the hype. Take note of the following:
- 33 million pixels compared to 8 million of a 4K TV
- Sharper and detailed display
So, get ready to transform your viewing experience a few notches higher!
Other new technologies to look out for this 2019
To supply TVs packed with the latest technology, manufacturers are set to improve their LED, LCD, and OLED devices for better performance. For instance, LCD TVs have an advanced backlit technology to block the light that flows in during dark scenes.
However, with backlighting always on, these TVs sometimes have black tones looking greyish and have halos created around lighter images on a dark background, as some light manages to pass through.
The OLED variants, in contrast, don’t have a backlight, but individual pixels that emit their own light. Hence, these TVs don’t face such a problem as the individual light pixels shut off during dark images.
The year 2019 brings the potential for you to upgrade your LCD TV viewing experience to OLED-like quality with the use of full-array local dimming LED backlights. Additionally, TVs in 2019 will have an upgraded version of HDMI called HDMI 2.1 and higher frame rates.
So, 2019 definitely holds promising new developments in television technology, and it’s time for you to look forward to bringing home a new model to enjoy these features to the hilt.
