8K Association Strengthens Performance Specification for 8K Televisions

Recommended Posts

The 8K Association (8KA), the cross-industry group dedicated to promoting the growth of the 8K ecosystem, has published an updated performance specification for the 8K Association Certified mark program. TV shoppers looking for televisions which offer four times the resolution of 4K TVs and meet the high-performance standards of the 8K Association Certified program will benefit from the newly adopted broader performance requirements applied to 8K TVs launching in the market starting this year.


In addition to the existing requirements for resolution, luminance, color and connectivity standards that ensure powerful big-screen performance, the 8K Association Certified logo program now recognizes a broader set of video decoding standards that will promote the wider availability of 8K streaming content. In addition, the updated requirements ensure that 8K TVs enable access to advanced multi-dimensional surround sound formats for a truly immersive home theater experience.


“During this difficult time when a communal movie theater experience is not possible for many, the availability of big-screen TVs with super-sharp 8K resolution offers an alternative cinematic option at home,” said Dan Schinasi, Director of Product Planning at Samsung Electronics America. “With the 8K Association’s support in promoting standards that include audio-video performance and interface standards, we expect that more homes will choose 8K TVs and more 8K content will be soon available in those homes in the year ahead, offering an exceptional home theater experience.”


In addition to the 8KA’s updated performance standard for TVs, the organization expects to promote the growth of the 8K ecosystem with a focus on educating video content creators on the benefits of capturing, producing and distributing video in 8K resolution.


Established just two years ago, the 8KA has grown to encompass a broad membership of leading companies that represent all the different parts of the ecosystem. From 8K content creators and technology suppliers that enable 8K content creation to semiconductor producers, panel manufacturers and the world’s biggest TV brands – 8KA member companies are at the forefront of delivering the most impressive visual images from lens to the living room.

      Samsung Electronics today announced that the 2021 Neo QLED lineup has received the first-of-its-kind ‘Eye Care’ certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), a well-regarded electrical engineering certification institute in Germany. This distinction underscores Samsung’s commitment toward improving the consumer reliability of its TVs.
      All of the Samsung 2021 QLED models that have completed the testing have  received1 the comprehensive ‘Eye Care’ certification which includes ‘Safety for Eyes’, ‘Gentle to the eyes’, flicker level,2 uniformity3 and color fidelity4 assessments.
      ‘Safety for Eyes’ certification is assigned to products with the levels of emission of blue light, ultraviolet rays, and infrared rays that fall into the ‘Exempt Group’ according to classification of emission limits set by International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
      ‘Gentle to the eyes’ certification proves that the amount of melatonin suppression from a device meets the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) standard.
      IEC is an international standards organization that prepares and publishes international standards for electrical, electronic products and related technologies. CIE is the international authority on light, illumination, color and color spaces.
      Through the certification, Samsung’s QLED TVs have also been recognized for meeting the standards of picture quality uniformity and color fidelity, both elements of which evaluate content delivery performance.
