Television is currently in a process of clear redefinition due to the massive introduction of information technologies, mainly the Internet. We are in a process of change in several levels, for example in the patterns of use of the video, which evolve towards a more personalized consumption thanks to the ability of the Internet to take any content anywhere at any time.
Another of the fundamental trends in which we find ourselves inserted today is the significant increase in the definition of the screens allowing a much more realistic effect and even other effects such as 3D television without the need to include special glasses to watch the video. In this article, we highlight two realities and quality televisions that we believe will be common among the population in the year 2020: television with Ultra High Definition (4320p) and holographic television.
The first, Ultra High Definition television (4320p) also known as 8K, (not 4k as it is currently being discussed) is 7680-pixels wide by 4320-pixels high (33.18-megapixels) that is 16 times more pixels and four times more the spatial resolution of the current 1080p HDTV. Another technology that is considered to be available in the next few years, although it does not seem easy to reach the market, at least massively within only two years, is holographic television that will allow us to have a kind of R2D2 in the living room.
According to TV experts UK, we can recreate the movies in a complete 3D. The fundamental problem with these technologies is the need to refresh the screen at a much faster rate than current technologies allow. Certain advances in the field of energy transmission are beginning to make it an achievable option. The first models are expected to be a luxury object, as happened with flat television 20 years ago.
However, the competition between the main manufacturers, new materials on which is being investigated as graphene, and the need to revitalize the market once the high definition is already common cause the process to accelerate. The possibilities of holographic technologies go beyond providing a new way of watching movies.
In 2020, only two years from now, we will have made another important leap in this regard, as important as the one that has taken place in the last 20 years. According to a recent Ericsson report, half of the TV consumption will be on demand in 2020, with more than 50,000 million connected devices and top TV accessories, of which 15,000 million will allow access to multimedia content and will circulate over IP networks dominated by video traffic.
Television will be more personalized in its content, and of higher quality; In addition, users will have more options to choose from, and will be able to do it easily from mobile and fixed networks. Samsung wants a smarter and more connected world by 2020. Samsung will introduce Artificial Intelligence on screens. It will be present in the 8K resolution on its TV sets. Artificial intelligence will be able to improve the quality of images that were not created in this resolution.
The Smart TV handles smart cameras, listens, recognizes and identifies the voice with Voice ID attached to the virtual assistant Bixby. Bixby recognizes multiple voices and knows your preferences, from each member of the family or office. Place orders on any connected device. This device is becoming is one of the best TV accessories by Samsung.
Moreover, because increased connectivity requires greater security, Samsung announced plans to incorporate its reliable Samsung Knox technology into its connected devices, including its Smart TV lines. Samsung is working to introduce security guidelines for third-party devices that work with SmartThings.
