Samsung records football and motorcycle events in 8k
Samsung used six 8K cameras to record the match between Manchester United and Inter Milan (with a victory for Manchester) that was played in Singapore last July 20 in the 2019 International Champions Cup, according to ZDNet .
Samsung was the first consumer company to offer 8K TVs with its QLED TV models, in 2018.However, the lack of 8K content remains a stumbling block for the adoption of this resolution, which multiplies the 4K resolution by four and the Full HD resolution by 16.Another obstacle is the ability of networks to broadcast 8K content in streaming. Samsung is confident that 5G will help generalize the 8K resolution in less time than it took to popularize 4K.At the end of 2018, Japan started the television broadcast in 8K resolution.The 2001 film: A Space Odyssey (1968) was the first film broadcast by satellite in 8K, and the Tokyo Olympics in 2020 will be aired in 8K.In addition to recording events in 8K resolution, Samsung has an image scaling system that uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to convert content available in lower resolutions to 8K resolution: HD, FHD or 4K UHD. Samsung expects that at the end of 2019 its QLED TVs will represent half of the 8K TV market "consolidating its leading position in the premium TV sector."In Spain, Samsung recorded the Atresmedia Decisive Debate on April 23, "the first political debate on television recorded with the highest image quality."
In June Samsung Spain moved to the Jerez circuit to record in 8K native resolution the free practice day of the Repsol Honda Team motorcycle racing team.
