So you think OLED might be the future of TVs, but you’re not down for that whole curved thing? No worries, because at a preview of what LG plans to show at IFA, the company has shown it’ll support both kind of television.
There are quite a few Ultra HD TVs out there, but when it comes to content, there isn’t much to go around. WD has something that might help, but the bad is it ain’t coming here.
Keen to get some 4K video captured for that new 4K TV, but you just know you’re going to get caught in a rain storm? Panasonic has a camera just for that.
A TV that is thinner than pretty much every smartphone available in Australia? Sign us up, because it’s time to check out Sony’s 4.9mm thick X9000.
It’s the middle of the year, and by now the TV manufacturers should have their wares in stores for you to buy, and for us to review. Sony appears to be last, though, but is finally showing off one impressive little TV.
LG is one of the only companies selling OLED TVs, televisions with panels that are semi-organic in nature and produce real blacks and vibrant colours, and from this week, they’re even 4K ready.
How do you deal with a lack of Ultra HD content for 4K TVs? You get people to make their own, which is exactly what Panasonic is doing with its latest mirror-less shooter, providing not just 4K video, but 4K image shooting.
Content has always been the problem when it came to the whole “4K TV” argument, but just like that, a 4K UHD service has showed up.
If the past two years aren’t an indication, then let it be said now: 4K is here to stay, and while we’ve seen LG and Samsung show their Ultra HD wares, now its time for Panasonic to dish the goss and reveal what it has in store for Australia in 2015.
Ultra High Definition content is next to impossible to find in this country, but Blu-ray could well be the saviour, with a new Blu-ray disc on the way.
