The 8K TV standard has a resoluti
on of 7680 x 4320 pixels. That means there are nearly 38 million pixels on the screen.
8K offers four times the resolution of 4K TVs (9 million pixels and a 4096 x 2160 resolution) and 16 times the resolution of a 1080p HDTV (2 million pixels with a 1920 x 1080 resolution).
Though 4K (let alone 8K) is still a rarity, the television industry is pushing hard to increase the standard broadcast resolution from HD to “ultra-HD” in the next few years. But there doesn’t appear to be too much momentum behind that push.
To watch an 8K video on Sharp’s new LV-85001, you’ll have to use all four HDMI connectors and have a computer that supports 8K video output.
