The 8K Association, the cross-industry group that promotes the growth of the 8K ecosystem, has published an updated performance specification for the 8K Association Certified mark program.
In addition to the existing requirements for resolution, luminance, colour and connectivity standards that ensure powerful big-screen performance, the 8K Association Certified logo program now recognises 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 multi-dimensional surround sound formats for a truly immersive home theatre experience.
In addition to the 8KA’s updated performance standard for TVs, the organisation 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 can deliver impressive visual images from lens to the living room.
