New 4k UHDTVs may not be good or powerful enough to deliver the content!

In order to get the maximum in image quality, the frame rate needs to be quite high.

Yet some UHTVs may only be able to run at a very low frame rate.

According to Trusted Reviews:

Unfortunately, a standard 4K TV still might not be enough. Yesterday, Sky’s chief engineer revealed many UHD TVs would not be able to handle 4K sports content. That’s because many 4K TVs are only powerful enough to transmit UHD content at 25fps, while sports content needs to be broadcast at much higher frame rates – possibly up to 100fps.

It’s not clear which TV sets will be compatible with BT’s new 4K channel, or with Sky’s UHD set top boxjust yet.

The world’s largest television set was today put on sale by Samsung. The TV measures 110 from corner to corner and is four times sharper than a high-definition TV. It currently costs around £100,000.

It achieves achieves its precise picture – which has been compared to looking through a window – through U-HDTV (Ultra-High Definition Television) technology, which packs in four times as many pixels per inch as current high-definition sets.

The Samsung U-HDTV, which is 102 inches wide and 70 inches tall, is bigger than a king-sized bed.

Samsung said they have received ten orders from the Middle East already, though Chinese buyers are expected to snap up the largest portion of the sets.

The new model dwarfs the size of the former largest Samsung U-HDTV, which measured 85 inches.

They replace the previously-touted OLED technology, which Samsung and rivals LG were last year promoting as the future technology. But the specially-treated LED bulbs were deemed to expensive for the huge screens, and both manufacturers have now embraced U-HDTV.

According to reports, global sales of ultra-HD TV sets will surge from 1.3 million this year to 23 million in 2017.

Expert Barry Fox said: ‘The pictures are mind-blowing, it is like looking through a window.’
